Corfu – Greece

For your next holidays, choose nature, discovery and relaxation while staying in Corfu. Air quality is up to three times higher in Corfu than in central Paris and the population density on this Greek island is 23 times lower than the population density in London. 

The beach of Paleokrastritsa and its monastery, the nightlife of Sidari and the beach of the “Canal d’amour”, the seaside resort of Agios Georgios or the old town of Corfu and its rich Byzantine heritage await you this summer. The best time of the year to visit Corfu is certainly spring (from May) and summer (until late August). April and September are quite rainy but not as much as November and December that should be avoided. Be that as it may, all this rain that falls in winter makes Corfu one of the greenest and most beautiful Greek islands. The island is the perfect destination for an unforgettable holiday under the sun . It was marked by the Venitian, English and British cultures as it was under their control for centuries.

Come discover this rich historical past, stay at its paradisiacal beaches, enjoy its wine, its virgin olive oil and offer yourself a private Corfu full-day wine tasting tour or a 5-hour private Corfu & Achillion palace tour.
