Corfu is an island that's saturated in romance. A place of rest and recovery for the shipwrecked Odysseus, this is an island that has myths and legends imprinted throughout its wooded hills and sparkling coves. To visit Corfu is to step into a story and with a friendly population, breath-taking scenery and proud cultural history, it will be one you'll want to revisit whenever you can.

The History of Corfu

Placed between the west coast of Greece and the heel of Italy, Corfu has a long and complicated past defined by conquest, pirate raids, and legend. Known as Kerkyra in Greek, Corfu owes its name to the nymph Korkyra, the daughter of a river god who was brought to the island by a besotted Poseidon - a mythic connection to the sea that is reflected in its true history.

Inhabited since the Palaeolithic era, the island is home to ancient temples and towns built by the sea-faring Phoenicians. Its strategic location and importance as a naval base saw it ruled by everyone from the Romans to Napoleon Bonaparte's French State. It's these waves of varying influences that have created the unique and beautiful island we see today.

What to See and Do in Corfu

Our luxury villa in Corfu can be found in the horseshoe shaped bay of Kalami, widely considered to be the most tranquil beauty spot on the island. With villages clinging to the hillsides, an amphitheatre of island greenery embracing the Ionian Sea and air of relaxed charm, it's easy to see why.

Here you can relax on perfect sand of Kalami's blue-flag beach listening to the waves, or wander around Kalami town enjoying the seasonal festivals and soaking in the authentic Corfu culture.

Hiring a boat to explore the North East of the island is another way to experience the best of Corfu, while picturesque harbours, hidden bays and traditional taverns are all to be enjoyed at the end of scenic walks.

Corfu Food and Drink

Dominated by local produce, Corfu can offer some of the best food found in the Mediterranean. The island's interior glimmers with olive groves, you can find interesting cheeses from local farms and the waters around the island offer up beautiful seafood. Some traditional dishes to try on your stay include the stuffed aubergines called Iman eggplants, the spicy fish soup Bourdeto and, of course, the famous Greek salad Horiatiki.
