Summer in CorfuMon, 5th Jun 2023
Sometimes when it seems that most of the world is in the turbulence of one kind or another it feels as if Corfu is still trundling on regardless
Updated corfuhomefinders.com website, lovely new office, expansion into Paxos, new associates and of course, new properties!
Following a few days of muggy sandy Saharan sky, we had a short sharp storm yesterday morning which cleared the atmosphere beautifully.
Home purchases by foreigners in Greece moved back up to 2014 levels last year, mainly thanks to the considerable recovery seen in transactions over the last few months of 2016.
It seems as if people are rediscovering their love of Greece. The Move Channel carries out in-depth analysis of property trends worldwide and the following article came out a coulee of weeks ago. Not surprising to any of us of course.
Most of the owners I speak to have high praise for Airbnb, and I would have agreed until last summer opened my eyes to the pitfalls of their system and made me wonder how many people are aware of this.
Probably the coldest winter that many of us can remember has arrived with a vengeance in Greece. As often happens Corfu - right over on the west - has not suffered as badly as other parts of the country, but it has still been amazingly cold.
At times like this it is so obvious why we love living in Corfu. With half an hour to spare, on our way to show land to some Russian clients, we had time for a coffee in Kouloura.
On my way to bed last night, I took a last look at the moon from our upstairs terrace. The scattered clouds obscuring the bright light created this wonderful effect. Lovely summer evenings - one of the very best parts of living in Corfu!
