Newest Review: ... well as enjoying the facilities of our hotel. I had also read other novels based in Corfu and to me it seemed as if C this would be a place to relax, sample the food and wine and soak up the atmosphere of a foreign clime. I believe was right. When we arrived at Corfu airport at night it was raining lightly. We were told that there had been a few days of rain prior to our visit. WE ... more

Corfu is an Ionian islands which lies to the west of mainland Greece. The Ionian islands are situated in the Ionian Sea (or Adriatic Sea). There are seven main islands and several lesser ones. Corfu is one of the better known of these. It is a long and thin island in shape (approx. 36 miles in length and 15 miles in width.) I have now visited several Greek islands, as well as mainland Greece, and have enjoyed every visit. Corfu is quite different in feel; say from Crete, being smaller and with more of a British influence embedded in its history. Corfu had been controlled by Venice, avoided may Turkish attacks, before coming under British rule after the Napoleonic Wars. .. Read the complete review

It has now been quite a few weeks since I went to Corfu for my holidays but last night I was showing my holiday photos for the umpteenth time and remembering just how nice the island is. Now as I like to spend my holidays exploring and not necessarily sunbathing all week I have seen a lot of Corfu so I decided that I would give you all a very quick tour of the island of Corfu and then if you do have any questions then you can ask me. So here I go. ----- A Little Bit of Information: Corfu is a Greek island or Ionian island as it is known over there. It has the nickname of the Emerald Island because it is just so green and is known for ... Read the complete review

Let me set the scene. It’s autumn 2004, and a group of friends are disillusioned with life, work, study, and the dreadful Scottish weather. Luckily for this group of friends, amongst them is Dr. Dollanganger, who quickly diagnoses a case of the quite common ‘Severe Boredom and Lethargy Syndrome’. The way to combat this crippling problem? ‘Well,’ says the sharp witted Dr. Dollanganger, ‘I shall prescribe a two week course of antibiotics. I suggest the highly effective Holiday Drug. No go forth.’ That, fair readers, is how myself and four other friends found ourselves touching down in Kerkyra (more commonly known as Corfu) airport a short time ago. ... Read the complete review

I've just returned from my first visit to Corfu. i stayed in Gouvia, which is about 15 mins north of the capital Corfu Town. The first thing I noticed was the amount of cats running about the place. being a cat lover I was not bothered at all and I even had three regularly come to my door. Couldn't help but go to the supermarket and buy a few tins of Whiskas! Since it was the end of the season the weather was very changeable. the first two days were nice hot and sunny, followed by a big thunderstorm and a day of rain. Another day of clouds followed then more sun. Didn't last long and three more days of cloud and rain had us wondering what on ... Read the complete review

I think I first fell in love with Greece when I was 15 and studying for my 'O' Levels. I read "My Family and other Animals" by Gerald Durrell, a story which is set in the island of Corfu. I liked the idea of the strawberry pink villa where they lived and the description of water melons like "pink ice" has stayed with me till this day. Yes there are strawberry pink houses and yellow ones too! When I first announced that I was going to Corfu I received a couple of derisory and snobbish comments from friends who see themselves as seasoned back-packers and travellers, but who of course had never been there themselves. I am pleased to announce Read the complete review
