Things to do

Achilleion:

The statue of Achilleion was erected by Empress Elisabeth of Bavaria. The statue shows the half-man-half-god Achilles in an injured state. Within art historical circles, the statue is generally regarded as a reminder of the number of times this particular Greek island has changed hands.

Banknote Museum:

The Banknote Museum exhibits a collection of Greek currency from the 1820s to the present day, all in all around 2,000 pieces. It includes such monumental moments as Greece's shift to the Euro in 2002. The museum was founded in 1981 by Ionian Bank, which later merged with Alpha Bank. The collection is the most complete of its kind.

Music on Corfu:

Take in the variety of musical and theatrical opportunities on offer! The Philharmonic Society and the Mantzaros are both high-quality bands on the island of Corfu. Each band is comprised of two full-strength ensembles. The bands can be found playing not only in a concert setting, but also at various events year-round.

Music Museum of the Philharmonic Society of Corfu:

The Music Museum of the Philharmonic Society of Corfu was only recently opened, in 2010. The museum provides a brief history of the Philharmonic Society, and also honours Nikolaos Halikiopoulos Mantzaros, the society's first artistic director and composer of the Greek National Anthem.

Serbian Museum of Corfu:

The Serbian Museum of Corfu houses exhibits about the First World War's Serbian soldiers and their tragic end. Serbian soldiers fled to Corfu following the collapse of the Serbian front. The exhibit includes photographs, weapons, and uniforms from this time. This unique and very specialized museum is not to be missed.

Cape Fonias:

Explore Cape Fonias, at the far north end of Corfu. This beach is surrounded by dramatic cliffs on all sides, and boasts a view of the Aegean Sea. Due to occasional unstable weather conditions, it is best to travel to Cape Fonias by car.

Weather in Corfu

Greece's climate is Mediterranean in nature, and provides ideal holiday weather year-round. Temperatures in summer reach the mid-30s and 10-15°C in December, making for ideally hot summer days and an extremely mild winter. The heat is not humid, but rather a dry heat. Plan for plenty of sunshine in the summer and rainy weather in the winter.

Travel to Corfu

Travelling to Corfu is simple and straightforward. Fly into Corfu Airport (CFU). Alternatively, you can fly into Athens (ATH)and drive to the Ferry Harbor at Igoumenitsa. Both car-carrying ferries and catamarans run throughout the islands on either side of mainland Greece. These tickets are best booked on the day of travel, rather than ahead of time.

Stunning luxury villa

5 of 5
A wonderful holiday in an absolutely beautiful villa! The pool area and terraces and gardens are stunning and provide a perfect place to relax in the sun and the shade. The interiors and bedrooms are light, airy and very comfortable. Judi and Jacob really have thought of everything you might need to make your holiday as comfortable and stress-free as possible and their care and attention really shows. A great spot to explore more of the island and do hire boats to sail up the coast from Agni Bay. Our two teenagers who loved it as much as we did.

beautiful view from terraces & high ceiling house

4 of 5
This house nested in the hills above Acharavi offers an exquisite setting away from the crowds in a very confortable house, well decorated all in white. The atmosphere is zen with a great safe pool (no diving). It is soothing with all the places where you can relax on a terrace, around the pool or in the big living area with a high ceiling. If you need some fun interaction you can walk or take the car down to the village with cafes and restaurants and a beautiful beach (no big waves, nice cafes on beach with sunbeds). Warm welcome by local managers with treats in a basket in the kitchen when you arrive...I highly recommend it!!!
