From bustling family-friendly promenades to rugged, unspoilt wilderness, the Corfu of today blends two worlds: the Kerkyra (as the locals call it) of time-honoured literary works, and the vibrant tourist haven of today. Cobalt blue waters lap golden sands, charming villages are dotted among luscious hilltops, and cobbled streets line ancient towns.
You may have seen Corfu, depicted in popular comedy-drama the Durrell's (inspired by autobiographical accounts of Gerald Durrell), as a picturesque, rustic Greek island with artistic roots - and it is. With a Unesco-listed main town, warm European hospitality and long, warm summers, mythology and literature ring true (reportedly the Greek God, Odysseus, was soothed by the beauty of Corfu).
Our destination experts have scoured the length and breadth of the island to discover the best intimate hideaways, rural idylls and beachfront locations for our Corfu villa collection.
There's something to suit the whole family on this sun-baked island: beachgoers will be impressed by its sandy coastline, culture fiends will appreciate its history and art, families will love its waterparks and lively esplanades, foodies will devour its gastronomic offerings, and outdoor adventurers will have plenty to do, from hiking and biking to thrilling water-sports.
