Corfu: A Rare Crossroad of Cultures
“Gradually the magic of the island [Corfu] settled over us as gently and clingingly as pollen.” - Gerald Durrell
Although that Corfu is the seventh-largest island of Greece, it's not the size that differentiates it from other prominent island destinations of the county, but its high historical and cultural value.
The island seems to have been inhabited continuously since 1300bc, an era from which we have the first written reference. Homer also, is the one that mentioned the island in his Odyssey and made it famous under the name " the island of Phaeacians".
Over the centuries, the island has been a meeting point for various nationalities and cultures and also, a terrain of conflicts for the European and Mediterranean superpowers of each era, due to its strategic location and status. Roman, Byzantines, Genoese, Venetians and of course, Greeks shaped the island and especially the city of Corfu which later in 2007 was added to UNESCO's world heritage list.
Some of the greatest evidence/places of interest representing this heritage and worth a visit are the Temple of Hera, the Tomb of Menecrates, the Temple of Artemis, the medieval Old-Fortress of Corfu, the Gardiki castle and last but not least, the Palace of the Austrian empress Siisy-Achilleion Palace.
a visit to the city centre should include a walk on the Spianada square, which is the largest in the Balkans, on the sidewalk of Liston and the picturesque alleys of the old city, which are well known by the term "Kantounia" and which are crowded with people especially during the easter and summer season due to the plethora of restaurants, cafes and shops operating there.
Although today Corfu is a mainstream destination specifically for the middle and upper-middle classes, it does not mean that the island has abolished its status as kings'and royalties' resort that it gained back in the 20th century and it still maintains its cosmopolitan and luxurious character.
For this reason, our real estate expert team selects to present you a list with six luxury villas in Corfu that will take you back to the most glorious days of the island and enhance your entire holiday experience.
