Corfu was not given the name of the Emerald Island for no reason. The greenest of all the Greek islands, Corfu's natural beauty is hidden under a cloak of emerald green, with a mountainous skyline plunging into the bluest of blue waters.
Elegant architecture, sunblessed beaches, enchanting nightlife and fine cuisine all play their part in attracting visitors from all over the world. With a welcome as warm as the sun, the renowned reputation the Greeks possess for their unique and instinctive hospitality makes any visitor feel more than at home. The island has something to offer everyone. Corfu Town itself is a contrasting combination of old and new existing side by side in perfect harmony.
There is an abundance of sand, shingle and pebble beaches lining the 200 km coastline, leading to clear waters ideal for swimming and water sports.
Take a little time to explore the island and you will be rewarded with some of the most spectacular scenery on offer by any destination.
A trip into the heart of the island will give you an insight into Corfiot village life. Time, in some places, seems to have stood still and everyday life carries on pretty much as it must have done for hundreds of years.
Even though the island is constantly developing to cater to the demands of today's tourist, Corfu has still managed to retain its beauty and charm throughout time. The majority of the island remains untouched and as captivating as it has been for centuries.
Whether you are looking for the hustle and bustle of night life or peace and tranquillity, everything you could need is here, just waiting to be discovered.
Corfu island is renowned as the greenest of all the Greek islands also for its particularly beautiful scenery and very friendly locals. The perfect place for a holiday !!

There are many sports on offer for the holidaymaker and the permanent alike - such as scuba diving, golf, tennis, cycling, boat rides, water sports, etc. All these types of activities are available as an organised excursion or you can do them on a private basis.
Walking in the countryside, there will always be a surprise around the corner, may be a heavily-laden donkey returning after a hard days work in the fields; perhaps a shepherd taking his siesta in the shade of the olive groves; a small church or monastery on the peak of the mountain with the most magnificent view over the island; and also, a very special time in the Corfiot calendar is the blooming of spring.
Walking around Corfu town can be equally as interesting with churches and museums to visit; the old and new fortresses; after shopping, relax in one of the many side-walk cafes, typical tavernas, bars and of course the famous Liston for people-watching.
What ever your fancy, it can be found and satisfied in our part of paradise!
