We are excited to welcome you to the mermaid shaped island of Corfu!
Corfu is part of the Ionian Islands and lies in the north of the group, at the entrance of the Adriatic Sea, facing Albania. It is the second largest island of the Ionian group after Kefalonia.
Because of the mild Mediterranean climate and the high rainfalls during winter, Corfu is full of abundant and verdant vegetation and wild plants, phenomenon that makes it one of the greenest islands in Greece. The island is mountainous and its northern center lays Mount Pantokrator, the highest mountain of Corfu, which rises to an altitude of 914 m. Several flat areas, plains, two lakes and a couple of rivers complete the beautiful landscape.
The capital of the island is called Corfu Town and is also the main port.
This is the largest town of the Ionians and one of the most beautiful towns of the Greek islands. Built between two fortresses and full of superb Italian and French buildings, Byzantine churches and flowered squares, Corfu Town is a real jewel full of innumerable charms and beauties.
Corfu’s natural beauty hasn’t gone unnoticed by the film industry it has been the setting for several movies.
Spring is a particular beautiful time in general, but it’s magic in Corfu! The island is so green, flowers are blossoming, roses give the fresh air it’s perfume and fire flies accompany your evening walks!
