Corfu is fresh and green, courtesy of its relatively northern latitude and generous, usually night-time rainfall. Thanks to its long history of occupation, buildings are a seductive mix of Byzantine, Venetian, French, and British architecture. As Greece’s longest-standing tourist destination, Corfu villas, restaurants, and attractions are plentiful, yet most of the island remains unspoilt. It is big enough to ensure that variety is one reliable feature of a Corfu holiday, and small enough to give access in a day to every corner. Its capital, Corfu Town, is one of Greece’s most enticing.
