Long sunny days and a bathlike Ionian sea is what September in Corfu means to us, when our morning swim is a warm and relaxing affair, when the island’s forested hills are still lush and verdant for afternoon naps underneath the olive trees.
This beautiful island’s green hills are studded with whitewashed houses, Byzantine churches, and the ruins of Venetian fortresses and ancient Greek temples. Spend a day wandering the ancient maze like lanes of the Roman village of Kassiopi and tuck into freshly caught seafood and a glass of the local wine in a cosy beachfront taverna.
We love the sumptuous Corfu Imperial Grecotel Resort which majestically occupies a secluded promontory overlooking the Ionian sea. Stylishly modern with a hint of old world glamour, this hotel feels elegant and luxurious. Enjoy the top end spa and swimming pools, or try your hand at an archery lesson.
