In order to help you while you prepare yourself for your next holiday to Corfu, our team has prepared a list of useful tips in order to assist your travel planning and preparation before you take away but during your stay with us as well:
Corfu can be reached by direct and charter flights from numerous European airports from late March through the end of October every year, as well as throughout the year by plane via Athens International Airport (El. Venizelos) with Olympic or Aegean Airlines.
Corfu can also be reached by boat from several ports of Italy (Ancona, Bari, Brindisi, Venice) as well as from the Greek Mainland (Igoumenitsa, Patras)
Corfu is covered with luxuriant vegetation, thanks to its winter rainfall – 240mm average in December – and is the wettest place in all of Greece. Tropical orchids, wildflowers, eucalyptus and acacias combine with northern European greenery such as oaks and maples.
Spring and autumn are the best times to visit Corfu. Conditions are perfect between Easter and end-June; the weather is pleasantly warm in most places, but not too hot. Beaches are relatively peaceful and accommodation is cheaper and easier to find than in July to end of August. Conditions are once more ideal from the end of August until mid-October as the season winds down.
Tap water can be used for washing, bathing, and brushing your teeth.
