Mediterranean Islands – Cyprus – intriguing and addictiveJune 5, 2019
Corfu, an island in the Ionian Sea, off Greece’s northwest coast, features clusters of neoclassical buildings, Venetian fortresses, and labyrinth cobblestone alleyways. Elegant Parisian cafes reveal the diverse culture that lives on the island influenced by the Venetians, French, and English. Corfu is truly picturesque, with traditional stone-built villas and remote farmhouses, historic family mansions with panoramic sea views and country cottages offering a comfortable retreat amongst their vineyards, ancient olive groves and fragrant herb gardens. Corfiot cuisine is known for its Mediterranean character and Venetian influence. Sofrito, pastitsada, bianco fish and bourdheto are only some of the highlights in the list of yumminess. Enjoy fun and adventurous stony trails through the orchards, catching glimpses of the sparkling Ionian Sea and beautiful hills. Visit Parga, a colourful and blissful harbour or Sivota, a small and tranquil fishing village opposite the south of Corfu, with amazing small beaches, an abundance of trees and tiny hidden islets.
