Corfu, famed for its glorious greenery and luscious interior, has become an immensely popular and luxurious destination. Often attracting the A list, this divine island offers stunning beaches, great night life, delectable restaurants and boat hopping between small and quaint tavernas meaning that even the most restless of pleasure seeker will be happy!
With its warren of narrow streets, graceful Venetian facades and wonderful main square, Corfu Town is more Italian than Greek to look at. Many of the narrow alleyways are pedestrianised and venerable buildings have been sensitively restored. The Old Town is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
One of the most notable buildings is the Liston, a French-built arcade lined with cafés and restaurants – perfect for coffee and people watching.
Instantly recognisable as the film location for the family house in ‘The Durrells’ BBC drama. This 18thC house has undergone a meticulous preservation rather than renovation meaning that some particularly charming aspects remain: the original open range cooker in the kitchen, and a majestic bath once owned by the Empress Elizabeth of Austria. Accommodation spreads over three floors with spacious entertaining space on ground floor and five en-suite bedrooms in the upper floors.
The gardens are dotted with sculptural Italian ‘Ombrellone’ pine trees, cypress, olive and fruit trees. Below the house, a path leads down to the sea, and for those keen on snorkeling the water is home to Corfu’s most important eco-system, the Posidonia meadows.
