Experience The Best of Corfu…

Town & Country  | Sea & Scenic

What are the first three things that spring to mind when you imagine a holiday on the island of Corfu?

Most would probably give the following answer:

Stunning beaches and crystal-clear seas that encircle the island with glistening water in shimmering shades of blue. Perfect for sunbathing, swimming, snorkeling and diving, or taking a small boat to secluded coves shaded by silver green olive trees.

Corfu Town – a UNESCO World Heritage Site with beautiful architecture, the result of Venetian, French and British influences that have gracefully touched the island over the centuries and influenced its culture, cuisine and its people.

Corfiot history and tradition, nature and wildlife, prevalent in the old villages which are often set against a stunning backdrop of lush green mountains. Villages, untouched by time, and cared for by mother nature, with bursts of colour and unlimited beauty, old settlements where birds, bees, butterflies, and all creatures great and small gently come and go.

But, until now, you may have found yourself having to settle for just one of the above, staying in a single location, or accommodation, usually near the sea, and making the visit to town, the countryside or the local villages a short day out.

However, now there’s a completely new way to experience the very Best of Corfu and here’s how…

Imagine the following scenario. Arrive at Corfu airport and within a short taxi ride, unwind in one of our handpicked selection of Corfu town’s finest hotels, where you can relax and ease into the holiday mood by soaking up the culture and buzz of Corfu town, then dinner in one of the town’s many restaurants, and a good night’s sleep.

Wake up to a lazy breakfast in the hotel and go sightseeing around the bustling streets of the old town and the Esplanade. When you’re ready, your rental car will be delivered at the hotel and you’ll be transported to the elegant four star Boutique B&B, The Merchant’s House, in Corfu’s oldest Village, Old Perithia, in the attractive northeast corner of the island.

Here you can spend 2, 3, 4 or more days, taking a step back in time and getting to experience the local tradition and hospitality of an historic mountain village in a designated area of natural beauty, where the village and the bees hum by day, but by night you have the whole place to yourself as the tavernas gently wind down until the next day.

Finally, having now managed to relax enough to be practically horizontal, go horizontal full time by staying at Chrismos Luxury Suites near Kassiopi, and a few steps away from the sea. Just 20 minutes drive by car, Chrismos offers fifteen tranquil beachside accommodations, a private pool and garden, direct access to the beach and a convivial lounge café and restaurant.

So, whether it’s a few days, a week, 10 days, or more, you can now experience the very Best of Corfu, an experience that you may find so warming, that you’ll wish to return again and again.
