The Ionian Islands region
Corfu was not given the name of the Emerald Island for no reason. The greenest of all the Greek islands, Corfu's natural beauty is hidden under a cloak of emerald green, with a mountainous skyline plunging into the bluest of blue waters.
Elegant architecture, sun blessed beaches, enchanting nightlife and fine cuisine all play their part in attracting visitors from all over the world. With a welcome as warm as the sun, the renowned reputation the Greeks possess for their unique and instinctive hospitality makes any visitor feel more than at home. The island has something to offer everyone. Corfu Town itself is a contrasting combination of old and new existing side by side in perfect harmony.
There is an abundance of sand, shingle and pebble beaches lining the 200 km coastline, leading to clear waters ideal for swimming and water sports.
Take a little time to explore the island and you will be rewarded with some of the most spectacular scenery on offer by any destination. A trip into the heart of the island will give you an insight into Corfiot village life. Time, in some places, seems to have stood still and everyday life carries on pretty much as it must have done for hundreds of years.
Even though the island is constantly developing to cater to the demands of today's tourist, Corfu has still managed to retain its beauty and charm throughout time. The majority of the island remains untouched and as captivating as it has been for centuries.
Whether you are looking for the hustle and bustle of night life or peace and tranquility, everything you could need is here, just waiting to be discovered.
15 km west of Corfu Town you will find Vatos, a small traditional village nestled into the hillside of Ai Giorgis, with a magnificent view to the Ropa valley. The inhabitants, who are simple and warm people occupied mostly with the cultivation of the land and tourism.
Vatos is a place where the directness and gentleness of the traditional old Corfiot can be found.
Myrtiotissa the nudist sandy beach is about 3 km away, Glyfada sandy beach 5 km and Ermones pebble/shingle beach 800m.

"Stunning house - lovely hosts - great stay"
Just in front of our trip we took four places into closer consideration. Due to fast and really nice reply of our landlady we decided to go for this cottage.
After travelling all over the island we can easily say that the location of the cottage is perfect. It is located in a quiet surrounding, and the lovely Pelekas beaches are just around the corner (5km away) . Corfu town can be easily reached by car within 20min drive. The house and the garden itself offers everything you wish to have a great stay there. My favourites are definetely the grill and the outdoor pizza oven:) Beside the garden offers fresh herbs and veggies for cooking.
Furthermore I would like to point out the never ending engagement of our landlady during but especially before our stay. She even organized a rental car for us and gave us in advance a handmade map which showed us the way from the airport to their place where she was already waiting for us.
Once again thank you for this lovely stay. We highly recommend this place.
