Corfu Island

About Corfu

The island of Corfu is a place of great natural beauty

The island of Corfu is a place of great natural beauty with rich vegetation and a fascinating coastline. There are mountains, rivers, lakes and many traditional villages such as Pelekas, Agios Markos and Kassiopi that are definitely worth exploring.

Corfu has many pebble and sandy beaches. Most of the larger beaches have umbrellas and sunbeds (at a price), and water sports facilities. If you are after a peaceful sunbathing session in a secluded cove, you will not be disappointed either. Just ask Eleni at Spiti Prifti reception for the best places.

The town of Corfu is famous for its historic sights. Countless visitors have been charmed by the picturesque cobbled streets of the Old Town, with its Venetian architecture and washing lines strung between the narrow buildings. Corfu town’s central square with its grassy cricket pitch and famous Liston colonnades was built in 1820. It’s ideal for people watching and a long cup of coffee in one of the many cafes there.
