Corfu has proven over the last years to be one of the more popular destinations for Europeans that seek a holiday, a retirement or an investment home. Demand for the island is increasing at a rapid rate and has quadrupled between 2002 and 2010. Corfu Island is renowned as the greenest of all the Greek islands also for its particularly beautiful scenery and very friendly locals. The perfect place for a summer or life time holidays!!
Corfu beaches offers what anyone may want: long sandy expanses, small pebble coves, sand and shingle shallow waters, or rocky / deep water.
There are many sports on offer for the holidaymaker and the permanent alike - such as scuba diving, golf, tennis, cycling, boat rides, water sports, etc. All these types of activities are available as an organised excursion or you can do them on a private basis.
Walking in the countryside, there will always be a surprise around the corner, may be a heavily-laden donkey returning after a hard days work in the fields; perhaps a shepherd taking his siesta in the shade of the olive groves; a small church or monastery on the peak of the mountain with the most magnificent view over the island; and also, a very special time in the Corfiot calendar is the blooming of spring.
Walking around Corfu town can be equally as interesting with churches and museums to visit; the old and new fortresses; after shopping, relax in one of the many side-walk cafes, typical tavernas, bars and of course the famous Liston for people-watching.
What ever you’re fancy; it can be found and satisfied in our part of paradise!
