About Corfu

The greenest of the Ionian Islands, Corfu is also the group’s most popular holiday destination, with beautiful landscapes, striking beaches and a fascinating culture to discover. Whether you’re dreaming of a laid-back beach break, a fantastic rural walking holiday or a food-focused escape, the best places to stay in Corfu really do promise something for everyone. Many are restored heritage villas, too, with stacks of classic charm.

Begin your explorations in Corfu Town, the island’s bustling capital. Set on the east coast, this historic community is home to much of Corfu’s most sensational architecture. Stroll along the Spianada — the town’s esplanade — to admire impressive edifices between the Old Fortress and the heart of the Old Town. The Old Royal Palace, now the Museum of Asian Art, will delight culture aficionados — as will the Liston, built by Napoleon to resemble the Rue de Rivoli. Corfu Town also has a lively evening scene, with parties spilling from bars and tavernas into the street.

Some of our Corfu Collections:

For a more tranquil experience, look to Corfu’s lovely villages. High in the mountains, heritage-listed Old Perithia was built as a hideaway from pirate attacks, Kynopiastes is home to one of Corfu’s most famous restaurants, and Lakones is close to the beach where Odysseus reputedly first met Nausicaa. The east coast waters are the calmest for swimming, but you can expect glittering azure waters on all side of the island. Do remember that the best places to stay in Corfu fill up fast during the summer months — book your trip well in advance or travel outside peak season!
