Corfu is one of the most important and beautiful islands in Greece, perhaps the greenest island with dense vegetation, unmatched in natural beauty with dozens of sightseeing, beautiful beaches, and a well-developed road network.

Corfu Luxury Villas to Rent Overview
1) Agni Bay:
Perched on the north-east coast of the island, Agni Bay is one little gem to visit. This historic fishing village is one gorgeous place to experience island life. Enjoy the coastline, take a dip in the warm waters and relax at one of the seafront tavernas that conjures up delicious Corfiot dishes. If you love seafood, you’ll love this little bay.
For a tasty bite, head over to Nikolas’ Taverna. You won’t be disappointed.
2) Visit the dramatic Cape Drastis
Cape Drastis is one of the most northerly points of Corfu Island, and one that should not be missed. Now there always seems to be inconsistencies on when Cape Drastis is open but it's a sure bet that during the summer months are easiest to gain access.
Near the top of the road, there is a gate which is ‘sometimes’ manned to charge for entry. This isn’t always the case and you can be lucky to just drive straight through. The road down to Cape Drastis can also be a little steep, so drive with care. Once you’ve arrived, you’ll appreciate how beautiful this spot is. My favourite time to visit is later in the day when the sun hits the cliffs – it really is a dramatic spot.
Don’t forget to take a few bottles of water with you too. There’s very little in terms of amenities at this little spot.
3) Explore the Old Town of Corfu
No visit to Corfu is complete without a wander around Corfu City (even though it’s more like a pretty small town). Make sure you wander around the UNESCO World Heritage protect the old town and see if you can spot any of the historic Venetian houses that are still standing.
Also, keep your eyes peeled for the Statue of Georgios Theotokis, the Liston, the Old Fortress, Spilias Square and Saint Spyridon Church (the patron saint of the town).
With all that exploring, head over to The Venetian Well for yummy food in an idyllic setting (the lamb is delicious).
4) Wander around Vlacherna Monastery
Possibly one of the most iconic sites of Corfu, Vlacherna Monastery juts out into the sea on its very own island. Nowadays, the monastery is reached by a small track over the water, which makes for a lovely place to visit. The monastery is open all year round and welcomes all visitors.
Keep your eyes peeled for Mouse Island that’s just a little further out to sea.
5) View St. George's Church, Kerkyra
Although this Church looks like a Doric temple, it was actually built by the British in the 19th Century. Perched within the Old Fortress of Kerkya (Corfu City), it’s a great place to see. During certain times of the year, concerts are held inside, so make sure you check once you arrive on the island.
