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.

From the moment we arrived and were greeted by Marcos we knew we were going to have a lovely holiday. The apartment was spotless, well appointed and cleaned several times during our stay. The garden was lovely and provided shade, hammocks, sunbeds and a large eating area. People walking by admired it as it was the only green space along the beach. There are plenty of restaurants just a short walk away along the beach to left and right. Shops and bars are a short walk away in land. Marcos, Beverly and Christopher are delightful hosts and we enjoyed their daily chats. They love entertaining their guests with a BBQ and Christopher cooks delicious chicken. We wanted a relaxing holiday and found the perfect place. We will be back.

The Villa & grounds are very well maintained and cared for. It can take a day or two to get your bearings and a car is a must as the villa is in a remote setting, the bonus of this is wonderful views and gorgeous sunsets!! We travelled as an extended family with a two year old and teenager - it meets all requirements and the play area for youngsters is a lovely addition! If you appreciate peace and privacy and are happy to travel out to get provisions and visit other parts of the island then you won't be disappointed! Thank you again for your hospitality and use of the fabulous villa Jackie & Mike Wignall
