beaches of Corfu

Olympion Village

This relaxing resort was born out of the vision to create a retreat from the lively area of ​​Kavos and offer its guests a combination of simple yet luxurious and comfortable accommodation. It is a short distance from attractions and places to visit, experience and travel through history and culture of Corfu.

Don't forget to see...
Asian Art Museum

In the city, it is the only one in Greece exclusively dedicated to Asian art and antiquities. The building where it is housed, the Palace of Saints Michael and George, to the north of Spianada Square, is an attraction in itself.

Gallery of the Municipality of Corfu

In the eastern wing of the Palace of Saints Michael and George. Through the painting and engraving collections, visitors can follow the evolution of the arts in Corfu (16th-20th century), while there are also periodic exhibitions of sculpture, artistic photography and works by contemporary artists.

Antivouniotissa Museum

It is housed in an important ecclesiastical monument (from the end of the 15th century), in the church dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary Antivouniotissa. The one-room, wooden-roofed basilica with a narthex is in itself a reason to visit - even more so today as it also has an important collection of images and relics from famous and anonymous artists (15th-20th century), emphasizing the role of Corfu in the development of Greek church painting.

Olive Museum

In the village of Kynopiastes, its purpose is to preserve and promote culture through information about the olive and its production. Visitors can see a rich collection of her tools and processing media as well as photographs of rural life in the last century.


A classic walk to enjoy airplanes (the "Ioannis Kapodistrias" airport is nearby) and to visit the Vlachernon Monastery and the much-sung, verdant Pontikonissi with the Pantokrator monastery.


The Pompeian-style building with strong neoclassical elements is one of the most popular attractions of the island. It is located in the village of Gastouri, in the south, in a wonderful location chosen by the Austro-Hungarian empress Elisabeth (at the end of the 19th century) to build her palace. The interior and exterior spaces are impressive, with the wonderful gardens, fountains, white marble or brass statues inspired by Greek mythology and the unobstructed view. Near the palace, in the settlement of Pahatika, is the "Elizabeth's fountain" as the locals call it, who claim that the empress used to drink water from there.


One of the most cosmopolitan spots of the island is the building on the west side of Spianada Square. Its name is due to the fact that only the nobles whose names appeared in the "Libro d'oro" catalog enjoyed their walk here. Today in its large arched arcades you will find many cafes and restaurants.


The old quarter is considered by many to be the most beautiful of Corfu. It certainly offers the perfect setting for romantic walks on cobbled streets, small picturesque squares with Venetian wells, important churches, mansions and fragrant laundries to complete the scene.

Mon Repo

On an estate surrounded by nature, in Paleopolis, the English commissioner Sir Frederick Adam chose to build his summer residence. The palace that has hosted many blue-blooded people enjoys a wonderful view of the sea and today houses the Paleopolis Museum, while in the wider area there are also important archaeological findings. Church of Agios Spyridon Built in 1589, the church of the island's patron is a point of reference for the locals, with the litanies of its "holy tent" gathering crowds of believers. The outer bell tower stands out, the tallest in the city.


As if some divine hand placed it on the top of the rock, Angelokastro is located in one of the most beautiful locations on the island and was built when Corfu belonged to the Despotate of Epirus (1214-1267).

Monastery of Panagia Paleokastritsa

This historical monastery is located on the northernmost peninsula of Paleokastritsa. As it is built on a steep rock, you will enjoy the wonderful view of the sea.

Lake Korissia

In the southwestern part of the island, Lake Korissia - designated as a Natura area - is an important wetland and attraction for numerous species of birds. It is offered for hikes from Halikouna beach passing between sand dunes and crossing a cedar forest.
