A destination of captivating contrasts, Corfu's lavish green landscapes provides an idyllic setting to quiet beaches and calm waters. On luxury holidays in Corfu, a boutique hotel or private villa is the perfect base to explore the island's stunning scenery, unspoilt coastlines and quaint villages.

Corfu’s emerald mountains are awash with olive groves, orange orchards, and cypress trees, which provide the perfect backdrop to pink-tinted towns, turquoise waters, and white sand beaches. Wander through the narrow cobbled streets of the charming Old Town of Corfu and spend your time exploring its main cultural highlights before discovering the rustic Greek tavernas.

When To Visit

Corfu benefits from a temperate climate and enjoys warm, dry days from June to September. The island's average temperature in the peak of summer is 25 degrees, with the humidity kept in check by cool sea breezes. The ocean begins to warm up in May and remains pleasant for swimming as late as mid-October.

If you want to spend your days hiking through the Corfu countryside, consider visiting in spring or autumn for glorious sunshine and comfortable temperatures.

Food & Drink

With all those olive groves and orange orchards, it’s no surprise Corfu makes the most of the finest local ingredients. Family-friendly resorts will offer traditional dishes, as well as international cuisine, and fine-dining options to suit all ages and tastes.

Italy is one of the biggest foreign influences in Corfu, with most restaurants serving evergreen favourites such as risotto and pizza. Whilst the old town boasts a number of excellent restaurants, many resorts house their own equally impressive versions, which often come with arresting ocean views.
