Welcome to the Island of Kerkyra (Corfu)
Centuries old silver olive groves, glowing oranges, scented lemons, rich pergolas, sleepy lagoons, forgotten coves, bubbling springs, exciting caves, virgin beaches, golden sands, and pellucid turquoise emerald seas.
This is an island with magical colours, flaming sunsets, romantic moonlight, luxurious vegetation, (lush green even in the height of summer) a riot of radiant flowers and colourful blooms.
Kerkyra (also Corfu) is the seventh largest Greek Island and the second largest after Cephallonia of the Ionian Islands. Located in the north of the Ionian Sea, opposite the coastline of both Greece and Albania and separated by the Corfu Channel. Kerkyra itself has an area of 592 sq. km. and a coastline of 217 sq. km.
The island enjoys a Mediterranean climate with mild winters and refreshing summers. However humidity is high owing to warm southwesterly winds (especially in the winter when winds can reach 8 Beaufort) and northwesterly winds (like the "maistro" of summer reaching force 4 Beaufort) causing heavy rainfall from time to time apart from mid-summer months.
The relaxing but rich countryside, the glorious beaches and many other wonderful sights have made Kerkyra one of the most beautiful islands in the Mediterranean and one of the most often visited places in Greece.
