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.

Review for stay from 08 July 2017 to 15 July 2017

5 of 5
We had a really enjoyable stay at the Villa Kalami Dream. What we liked: the amazing view; the infinity pool; the sun terrace, the modern feel to the Villa; our lovely host. What we didn't like so much: lack of main bathroom (there are two ensuites, but we had family members in the third bedroom); limited TV options; not much provided in the way of supplies (eg binbags, sugar, washing tablets). But these are small things in the overall context and we had a very memorable stay.

Stunning villa with the most wonderful views!

5 of 5
This villa looks beautiful in the photos but it's even better in reality. The photos can't really capture the panoramic views , we never tired of just sitting on any one of the several balconies enjoying a view of the sea. The villa itself is very well equipped and spacious. We are a family of 6 adults and everybody felt like they could enjoy their own space. The north east coast of Corfu is scenic and unspoilt and the villa is conveniently located close to beaches and tavernas and good service at the nearby supermarket. The local taverna, Vitamins, offers a friendly welcome, good food and even a lift back to the villa!! The owners gave helpful information prior to our trip and were quick to respond to queries. The daily visits from the housekeeper were definitely an added bonus , she was superb! A wonderful holiday all round and we hope to return again.
