Gaze at stunning scenery and enjoy the luxury treatment in blissful Corfu
Just four hours after leaving any UK airport, you could be stepping off the plane in Corfu on your way to sipping drinks at the poolside bar and taking in the views from your stunning luxury hotel.
With lush forests and sandy coves, it’s easy to find exclusive hideaways in Corfu. High-end hotels reside amongst the natural scenery and the island’s stunning viewpoints – such as Kaiser’s Throne – allow for panoramic views and amazing sunsets.
Fine dining is on offer too, so you can enjoy the best Greek cuisine from eateries such as The Venetian Well in Corfu Town. Relaxed seaside bars let you hang out late while top-notch venues such as Villa Mercedes have you dining while watching luxury yachts sail by.
Living the high life in Corfu
For the best natural scenery, private coves and tranquil hideaways consider Nissaki, Ermones and Kommeno Bay resorts for your luxury getaway. Nissaki sits at the foot of Pantokrator mountain and is superb for sailing and watersports, while Ermones is a secluded beach cove hidden by olive trees. The Kommeno Bay area has several luxury hotels dotted around the landscape, all with stunning views.
If you’d like some lively bustle on your holiday Aghios Gordios boasts a fun, family-friendly vibe and hub of shops, bars and restaurants. For some authentic Greek charm and serenity, the pretty stone houses of the inland village of Aghios Ioannis sit far from the crowds, but close enough to lively regions like Corfu Town for easy access.
