SightseeingFrom local gems to road trips that whisk you away for the day, Corfu has an abundance of choice for things to do and explore.
On the far side of the village you will find Vassilis and his many beehives. His family have managed the hives for generations and you will be pressed to find better pure organic honey and related products.
Megali Grava Cave
This ancient cave is just off the main road, near Loutses village. A short walk down the path will reveal the open mouth of the cave, resembling a large amphitheatre. Once you reach the flat-service bottom of the cave, look up for the myriad of geological formations above – you will be mesmerised by the sense of isolation and serenity.
The island’s capital is not to be missed in your itinerary. A UNESCO Heritage Site, the Old Town is one of the most charming and elegant places you will find in Greece. You can easily spend a day soaking up the sights and sounds of its fascinating multi-cultural past.
Located at the highest point of Corfu, at 917 metres above sea level, the Pantokrator Monastery has some of the most picturesque views of Corfu, the surrounding islands and the mainland. On a very clear day it is even possible to see Italy from here.
Follow in the footsteps of the Durrell family, probably one of the most famous families associated with Corfu. The White House, where Lawrence Durrell lived for several years, is located in the picturesque village of Kalami. It is now a taverna so you do have the chance to see and feel how the Durrells spent their time in Corfu.
