corfu greece

Corfu has long been a popular destination for a sunny, uncomplicated villa holiday with friends or family, and it's easy to understand why.

Famed for spectacular coastal and island interior scenery, a selection of superb villas, warm seas and plenty of sunshine.  This is one of the greenest of the Greek islands – thanks to intermittent but torrential rains from September to May, and the thousands of olive trees that carpet the land­scape. It is also, perhaps surprisingly, one of the more rural, sleepy islands away from the touristic honeypots.

We have just one family hotel on the island to recommend - MarBella Corfu - but have a superb selection of luxury villas located in the north east near the charming harbour town of Kassiopi, and close to Avlaki and St Stefano too.  Our collection of villas includes:

Tourist development is quarantined on certain coastal patches (far from where we will take you!), and once inland you really seem to be on another island, even another era. It's fantastic for hiking.

The old quarters of the east-coast capital, Corfu Town, have recently, and deservedly, been designated a UNESCO heritage site, and well worth stolling round if you have the time.

Weather and seasons

Corfu is “open for business” from Easter until October, but for better taverna service and moderate weather, mid-May to late June, and the last two-thirds of September, are arguably the best times.  During July and August everything is fully functioning, and the sea thoroughly warmed up, but you’ll contend with crowds and either intense heat or the maïstros, the infamous north-westerly wind which buffets beaches all afternoon.
