Corfu for foodies
If you've already found the perfect villa in Corfu for your holiday, it's time to make plans, and why not start by getting to know all the dishes this place has to offer? In Corfu, you will be treated to a special culinary experience based on Mediterranean cuisine with influences from Greek and Italian traditions. Make sure to try the local dish called sofrito (beef with oodles of garlic, accompanied by a wine-based sauce), and bourdeto (fish cooked in a red sauce with tonnes of pepper). For some of the finest authentic cuisine, head to Doukas in the village of Doukades. Got a sweet tooth? Look out for the delicious loukoumades (pastries made of deep-fried dough), a vital element of Corfu’s culinary tradition. Another great place to visit for gourmet cuisine is Paxos, so check out our villas in Paxos for another culinary adventure.
Corfu for beach bums
Corfu has an embarrassment of riches when it comes to beaches. From expansive, off-the-beaten-track expanses of fine sand, to small pictorial bays and halcyon coves. There are child-friendly beaches with shallow waters, such as Agios Spiridon in the far north of the island, paradise beaches for water sports enthusiasts, such as Gouvia on the east coast, popular beaches lined with bars and restaurants, such as Glyfada on the west coast, and totally unspoiled beaches for those who seek peace and tranquillity, such as Halikounas in the southwest. And if you want the fun to never end, we recommend one of our beachfront villas in Corfu to be close to the most beautiful beaches and with the most spectacular views.
Corfu for couples
Corfu is an unashamedly romantic destination, drawing large numbers of honeymooners from all around the world to its magical shores and its famous Corfu villas near the ocean. Corfu royals historically spent their evenings watching the sun go down into the Ionian sea from the top of the hill behind Pelekas, and you can continue the tradition and kick off a romantic evening with your partner. During the day, there are so many beaches to choose from where you can get away from the crowds and swim together in crystal clear waters to a spectacular backdrop of karstic cliffs and olive groves, such as Corfu Barbati in the island’s north. And what could be more romantic than a horse carriage ride? Cuddle together as you ride past the Venetian architecture of Corfu Town with its elegant mansions and Neoclassical palaces.
Corfu is a paradise for nature lovers, with 6,000 different species of herbs and flowers, some of which (such as the wild orchids) are found nowhere else in the world!
