When you're planning a villa holiday, the first thing that comes to mind is the cost, and how much it…
Corfu is the second largest Greek island in the Ionian Sea, said to have been blessed by Mother Nature herself, one of the most beautiful and romantic islands to visit in Greece. From lush green hills to noble mansions and from idyllic Corfu beaches to interesting museums, this island has something to offer every type of traveller and we have a great range of villa holidays on offer to suit every style.

There are plenty of gems to be bought in the main town, where the shops in Corfu are very diverse selling jewellery, leather goods, local ceramics and olive wood objects as well as various other souvenirs that you can take home as gifts.
History and Culture in Corfu
Strongly influenced by the Venetians, the French and the English, Corfu Town is a brilliant base for exploration and our range of villas are situated to help you get the most out of your holiday. Get lost in the narrow cobblestone alleys, the so-called “kandounia”, visit museums, such as the Museum of Asian Art, walk down the famous Liston promenade, or stroll around the huge Spianada square. The whole of Corfu town thrills with a nostalgic charm! You’ll see the glorious past of Corfu on imposing palaces, noble mansions, beautiful museums, and charming squares.

Other beach activities include wakeboarding, water-skiing, parasailing and paragliding, so you can do as much or as little as you like. Our large villas are ideal for groups of friends to unwind after a busy day of fun.
The countryside is also very popular for hiking, where there are many old footpaths that cross Corfu and lead to Venetian castles, mountainous villages, olive groves, and secluded beaches.

From the dramatic landscapes of Canal d’Amour in Sidari to the classy elegance of Corfu Town , some of the most romantic places in Greece are found on the island. Whether you are looking for an idyllic honeymoon villa or looking to celebrate a special occasion, Corfu is the perfect setting for your romantic couples villa holiday. Perhaps find your own secluded beach or take a romantic tandem paragliding across the crystal blue waters.
One of the most unique ways to experience the beauty of Corfu Town is on a horse carriage ride. Cuddle together and relax in a stylish coach, as you ride around some of the most picturesque towns. Nothing beats watching the sun go down, filled with brilliant shades of red, pink and gold. The most famous spot, arguably the best sunset in Corfu, can be watched from Pelekas. Watch this marvellous sight having a drink at the peaceful cafe admiring the panoramic views over the Ionian sea. Pelekas sunset is highly recommended for those romantic hearts which love staring and dreaming.
