Corfu has long been a popular destination for a sunny, uncomplicated villa holiday with friends or family.
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.

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.
