Places to stay in Corfu
- Benitses: Just south of Corfu, this is one of the most famous places on the island. It is most famous for the presence of the Achilleion palace, built in 1890 at the request of Empress Elisabeth of Austria. As the name suggests, the central theme of the architecture of the building is the figure of Achilles, and was designed by the Italian Raffaele Caritto.
- Paleokastritsa: 25 kilometres north-west of the city of Corfu, is one of the most beautiful places in the island. It consists of two small peninsulas and the panoramic road allows you to see from above the whole area, including the six beautiful bays. The presence of a monastery, moreover, makes it even more attractive and is unmissable for Corfu holidaymakers.
- Monte Pantokratoras: This is the highest point of the island, reaching 911 metres in height. A scenic road will take you to the top, passing through the village of Strynilas. From the top you can admire the entire island: this has got to be the perfect place to take some pictures of this fantastic landscape.
- Pelekas: On the opposite side of the city of Corfu, is a mountain village that may be the most visited, but certainly warrants a visit for its 360 degree views. The advice, almost obvious, is to go there for the sunset. Also William II loved to retreat here and enjoy the view visible from his observatory, the famous Kaiser Throne, of which the remains are still visible.
- Ipsos: Located 14 km from Corfu, you have all amenities available here. A different destination from the inland villages, and is perfect for the young and for those who, in Corfu, is looking for fun and a lively nightlife.
- Dassia: This is a very nice place for a day trip, but also a perfect base for your holiday home, because of its great location. Even Dassia is ideal for young people, for its sporting and aquatic activities and for its lively nightlife.
- The Diapontia Islands: These islands are located off the North-Western coast of Corfu and are a small paradise. Also because they are still somewhat undiscovered by mass tourism, so they are recommended. Few villages, few tourist facilities and lots, lots of wild nature: the Diapontia Islands are the perfect place for a trip out of town, reachable easily with ferries leaving continuously from the city of Corfu. There are three islands: Mathraki, the smallest and least accessible due to the rocks, Erikousa and Othoni, on which the Kalipso cave is undoubtedly worth visiting.
- The Islet of Vido: This is located a little more than a kilometre from the capoluogo, right in front of it. From the old port, at any time, a boat leaves for € 2 in 10 minutes to take you to the island. Very pretty and recommended for a walk or a swim on one of its two beaches.
Things to do in Corfu
Due to its strategic position, Corfu has been a destination of conquests in the past, and now for tourists for its beauteous landscapes. Staying in a holiday home or apartment in Corfu is the ideal way to explore every corner of this island. From here the Romans, Byzantines, Normans, Venetians, French and English have all passed through, leaving traces that make Corfù an interesting island from an historical and archaeological point of view. And then there is the sea: the Ionian here takes on magnificent colours and the beaches are all within easy reach, with golden sands or white pebbles. Renting an apartment in Corfu means having the opportunity to visit the island far and wide, without missing anything. We begin with the capital of Corfu, which is Greek is Kerkyra. Located in the central-eastern part of the island, on the coast, it has a historic centre reminiscent of the Venetian streets. An apartment in Corfu could be a good idea as a base for exploring the island, starting with the capital itself, which offers many places interesting to see. Here are some suggestions:

Beaches in Corfu
- Paleokastritsa is probably the most famous beach of Corfu which, as told in the previous paragraph, is actually composed of 6 small bays, plus many small beaches that follow one another from one cliff to another, some of which can only be reached by sea. The color of the sea is intense turquoise and the whole area is surrounded by hills full of woods and olive trees. Everyone, but all those who go to Corfu spend at least one day in this paradise. Also Ulysses was here, since it was precisely in Paleokastritsa Homer that he set the episode of the Odysseus of the palace of Alcinous, king of the Phaeacians.
- Agios Georgios is located near the city of the same name and, as opposed to Paleokastritsa, consists of a very long beach, almost 10 kilometers of sand. Very beautiful, crystal clear water and with many taverns where you can enjoy fresh fish, perfect also for those looking for a little fun: in the evening the environment is transformed and becomes the ideal place for an aperitif or an evening with friends.
- Sidari: For lovers, Sidari is a must for a holiday in Corfu. Pretty sandy beach, but the real specialty of the house is the famous Canal d'amour, the most romantic place on the island: a series of striking cables and canals that especially at sunset create an idyllic atmosphere.
- Glyfada: One of the largest beaches in Corfu, formed by golden sand but surrounded by cliffs covered with maritime pines. It is less touristy, quieter, ideal for those looking for a bit of peace and quiet: if you're lucky, the only noise you'll hear will be the cicadas.
- Halikounas: This is a very special beach, consisting of a strip of sand that divides the sea from a lake, on the southwest side of the island. A real hidden treasure, loved by surfers, finding itself on the only really windy side of the island, and by those looking for a little 'relaxation. An advice: if you plan to spend a day here, bring some provisions. There are no bars on the premises!
- Porto Timoni is not the name of a bay, but of two. Hidden under the promontory of Afionas, this location is not so easy to reach and requires at least 30 minutes of walking along a fairly steep path. The largest bay is ideal for those who love snorkeling!
- Paramonas: This is perfect if you are one of those people (like me) who wants to have an authentic and local experience at all costs. In fact, this beach is frequented only by Greeks. Above the cove, the first of a long series that runs to the lake of Korission, stands a very picturesque village, characterized by colorful houses and olive trees. Just a nice picture.
