Corfu – the perfect lifestyle choice

Corfu is the emerald isle of the Ionian Sea, where there is an enormous choice of land and property, including luxury villas, holiday hideaways, permanent homes and commercial investments – a range to suit every budget, in all areas.

Although the island is not large, it’s hugely varied, offering a wealth of views, terrains and climates. You can breakfast on your balcony overlooking the sea, lunch on top of the mountain among the olive groves, and have pre-dinner drinks watching the sunset on the beach. All within just a few minute's drive!

Apart from it’s obvious appeal, on a practical level Corfu is a great ‘living’ choice – nowhere is far away from a beach, taverna or shops, plus Corfu Town offers Venetian architecture, museums, shopping and atmosphere.

Flights are frequent from all over Europe - including Russia - and flight times are short. Plus the airport is no more than an hour from even the most distant parts of the island.

Corfu really does offer something for everyone – spectacular sandy beaches, rock bathing, fishing harbours, turquoise sea and stunningly beautiful views.

The locals welcome all nationalities, both as visitors or permanent residents, and many speak several languages. Add to this ease of access, an incredibly low crime rate and an enviable climate and it’s hard to think of a better choice for an overseas property.

"Corfu is almost two different islands, one in the summer, and one in the winter, and both appealing in their own way."

"On windy days, it's best to swim on the calmer east coast. Sand lovers should head for the north and west coasts, while the east coast is best for fans of pebbly beaches in small bays."

Corfu Town

Corfu Town Corfu Town Skyline

Corfu Town

Corfu town is one of the prettiest towns in the Mediterranean. A mixture of Italian, French and British influences combine to make the town unique in Greece, almost a half-way-house between the East and the West.

The old town, which runs between two ancient fortresses, along the sea coast and inland in a maze of cobbled streets and steep steps, has been granted UNESCO World Heritage status, and is full of delights for the visitor and resident alike.  There are myriad churches, squares and alleyways to explore, the famous esplanade - Liston - modeled on the Rue de Rivoli - is famous for its coffee shops and restaurants where you can sit and watch the world go by.  In the summer the wide pavements and adjoining park are thronged with visitors, and in winter the locals congregate here to exchange news and views and gossip while their children play.  In the evenings as the dusk falls and the house martins whirl and swirl amongst the rooftops, groups of teenagers gather to pass the time on their way to and from extra lessons or music practice.  Totally Mediterranean in this respect, Corfiots live their lives outside and the climate encourages the visitor to join in and pretend to be Greek.

There are many top quality restaurants serving a wide variety of local specialities and dishes from other countries as well as smaller local tavernas, intimate bars, coffee and cake shops. The town is the centre of island life not only because of its many shops, but because it is here that you will find doctors, banks, accountants and all the essentials for daily living. Ferry boats to and from the mainland ply the narrow straits - it takes just 1.5 hours to reach the Greek port of Igoumenitsa which then connects with various mainland locations via wide and largely empty motorways. Cruise ships regularly dock and unload their passengers to explore the island, and the airport is located on the edge of the town.
