One of the greenest islands in Greece, carpeted with olive trees, Corfu is known for its cosmopolitan, Venetian-influenced feel.
Corfu’s beaches are amongst the finest in Greece. Most have at least a couple of waterside cafes and other facilities; some, such as at Roda, have fine sand and shallow waters, perfect for families with young children. Other beaches, such as at Acharavi or Dassia, are brilliant for enjoying windsurfing, scuba diving and other water sports in the clear waters of the Ionian.
Aside from the beaches, you can explore the historic streets of Corfu Old Town; its fortress, palace, fine museums and waterside tavernas. Discover the beautiful and rugged inland; hike to sleepy villages, ancient castles or monasteries, or go horse-riding through semi-wild olive groves. Easy to get to, Corfu is the closest Greek island to Britain, so check out our villas to rent in Corfu for your next adventure in Greece.
