The most northerly of the Ionian islands, Corfu, has been extolled by literary figures like Henry Miller, Edward Lear, Gerald Lawrence Durrell and Homer. Known as the ‘gem of the Ionian’ it is one of the most verdant of the Greek islands. In spring, wildflowers fleck the land, with rare orchids found on higher ground at hiking trails near Mount Pantokrator. Walking trails north and south of the island lead deep into olive groves, past ancient wells and crumbling shepherd’s huts. Fishing villages line the coast.

Agia Pelagia is on the southeast coast of the island, offering views of the Greek mainland, pretty pebble beaches and crystal clear water dotted with fishing boats. You will discover picturesque mountainous and seaside villages, as well as Byzantine churches and some of the island’s most beautiful hidden spots that will travel you back in time.

 Corfu Climate

The island is characterised by a Mediterranean mild climate with hot and sunny summers and a warm temperature between May and early October. During the winter it is especially rainy, which is why it is considered the greenest Greek island offering an abundance of vegetation and wild plants. Visiting Corfu you will discover impressive landscapes, dense vegetation, Venetian ruins, museums and the most elegant capital. In 2007, the Old Town of Corfu was added to the UNESCO World Heritage list confirming its universal value.

Corfu History

Throughout its history, due to its strategic and enviable location, Corfu has played a major role in Greece’s past. The first reported settlers on the island were the Dorians who arrived in the 8th Century BC. From 336 AD onwards, it was ruled by the Byzantine Empire until its fall in 1453. For 400 years between the 14th and 18th centuries, Corfu was under serious threat from Turks and pirates.

During the Napoleonic wars, Corfu was briefly part of the French empire with Napoleon offering “liberation” to the island in 1797, which was accepted but soon came to an end following an invasion by a Russo-Turkish force two years later. After a decade of Ottoman rule and following the fall of Napoleon, the 1815 Treaty of Paris gave the Corfiots autonomous rule over the island. In 1864, Corfu finally decided to join the Kingdom of Greece.

The Achilleion Palace

The Achilleion is located in the village of Gastouri, South of Corfu Town and a 15’ drive from The Corfu Domain. It was built in the late 1890s as the summer palace, refuge and the source of inspiration for Elizabeth, Empress of Austria. A neoclassical mansion, the Achilleion was named after Achilles which is why a large four-ton bronze sculpture of the mythical hero dominates the back gardens.

Old Fortress

The Venetians built the Old Fortress, located in Corfu Town, in the 16th century. It is one of our favourite stops due to its historic yet romantic atmosphere but also for the views it offers, with Albania on the East and Corfu on the west. We love going at dusk when we get to see the lights from the boats and yachts at the port and prior to visiting Corfu Town for dinner. Corfu Town is truly the most magical capital in Greece. It is a divine place for shopping discoveries, coffee lounging, bar hopping and traditional Greek dining. Meander along the Venetian-like walkways or shop and visit a handful of significant historic sites in Corfu Town and Old Corfu Town.

“Mouse” island

“Mouse” island or Pontikonissi in Greek, comes from the Greek words “pontiki” which means mouse and “nissi” which means island. Its name reflects its tiny mouse-like size. Along with Vlaherna Island, these two tiny islands serve as Corfu’s visual signature. If you’ve ever looked at pictures of Corfu, you’ve probably seen a shot of these neighbouring islets. Vlaherna houses a small convent while Mouse Island is known for its 12th-century Byzantine church.

The Corfu Domain

Within a 27-acre estate of olive groves and 3 separate buildings that can host up to 26 guests, this waterfront domain is the best-kept secret of South Corfu.
