It's hard not to fall for the Ionian Islands, an archipelago that sweeps down the west coast of mainland Greece and includes Corfu, Paxi, Lefkada, Ithaki, Kefallonia Zakynthos and Kythera. Discovering these islands is a tantalizing odyssey. Their natural beauty embraces the visitor – the vast olive groves, intriguing mountains-capes and iridescent waters of the Ionian Sea offer something for adventure seekers, culture vultures and beach bums alike.
The region is a popular tourist destination. The airports of Corfu, Zante and Cephalonia were in the top ten in Greece by number of international arrivals.
Today, all the islands are part of the Greek state. Kerkyra has a population of 103,300 (including Paxoi), Zakynthos 40,650, Kefallonia 39,579 (including Ithaca), Lefkada 22,536, Ithaki 3,052, Kythera 3,000 and Paxi 2,438.
The Cuisine of the Ionian islands in Greece is the cuisine of the region. It has influences, more than any other part of Greece, from the Italian cuisine due to the long-time Venetian domination.
The Painting School of the seven islands, also known as the Ionian Islands' School, succeeded the Cretan School as the leading school of Greek post-Byzantine painting after Crete fell to the Ottomans in 1669. Like the Cretan school it combined Byzantine traditions with an increasing Western European artistic influence.The school was based in the Ionian Islands, which were not part of Ottoman Greece, from the middle of the 17th century until the middle of the 19th century.
The music of the Heptanese is the folk music of the geographic and historical region of the Ionian Islands. It is based a lot on the western European style. It is dominant the use of guitars and mandolins, while the kantádhes are very popular.
The island of Corfu is located just off the West coast of Greece. Corfu enjoys a mild Mediterranean climate along with excellent beaches making it a popular destination for holiday makers. Corfu is very green compared to other Greek islands: hot and dry summers along with winter rain creates lush vegetation which is dominated by over 2 million olive trees. These olive trees on Corfu are the main cultivation, although Corfu's tourism now provides the most income.
On Corfu, prepare yourselves to enjoy good food and wine, long lazy Taverna lunches, dip into the sea and enjoy complete relaxation. Yet those searching a little more action will not be disappointed. Corfu is an island of diverse contrast. Welcome to Corfu
Ermones is a small cove nestling between dramatic hills, studded with a few apartments, a couple of nice looking hotels and a couple of tavernas.
Glyfada beach is also near, for a stunning sandy beach - probably the finest the island has to offer - then Glyfada should be on your list. There are several bars and tavernas around Glyfada beach as well as the usual hotels and a few apartments.
Pelekas Village can be found on the West coast of Corfu - just 10 minutes drive. Pelekas is a large village situated on the top of a hill, with a lot of tavernas & bars. The beach is below the village - about a 10 min walk or a short car journey.
Myrtiotissa beach, is close to the villa:A small beach with small hills and olive and pine trees reaching for the sea.
