Why Corfu?

Why do we choose Corfu?

Corfu has proven to be one of the most popular destinations over the last years for those Europeans that seek holidays, retirement or a real estate investment. The demand for this island is increasing rapidly and has quadrupled between 2002 and 2010. Corfu is renowned for its hospitable and friendly residents as well as its particularly green landscape, not to mention that it is the greenest of all the Greek islands. The perfect place for summer or life time holidays!!!

Undoubtedly, Corfu offers beaches that would catch anybody’s attention and wish to visit: long sandy expanses, small pebble coves, crystal clear waters surrounded by lush vegetation.

There are many sports on offer for holidaymakers and the permanent alike - such as scuba diving, golf, tennis, cycling, boat rides, water sports, etc. All these types of activities are available as a part of 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, maybe a heavily-laden donkey returning after a hard day’s work in the fields; perhaps a shepherd taking his siesta in the shade of the olive groves, a small church or a monastery on top of a mountain with the most magnificent view over the island. Moreover, a very special time in the Corfiot calendar is the blooming of spring.

Walking around Corfu town can be as equally interesting as visiting churches or museums. For instance, wandering through the narrow, cobblestone streets of the city centre (“kantounia”) as well as the popular area of "Kampielo” in the Old City of the island, visiting the Old and the New Fortress - a marvelous sample of the Venetian architecture that would fascinate even the most demanding architecture or art lover, relaxing, after shopping, at one of the many side-walk cafes or typical tavernas, bars and of course, the famous Liston for people-watching is highly advisable.

Whatever you fancy can be found and satisfied in our part of paradise!
