Corfu, called Kerkyra in Greek, is located on the west side of Greece, and is the second biggest of the Ionian islands (Corfu, Paxi, Lefkas, Kefalonia, Ithaki, Zante and Kythira), after Kefalonia. The island is strongly influenced by the Venetians, English, French and Russians and all left their mark on the island. From idyllic beaches, to interesting museums, to mansions, Corfu is the place that will fulfil all travellers’ wishes. 

Corfu consists of numerous mountains, most of them in the Northern part of the island, which is irregular. Due to this particularity, you can find there lots of bays, getting replaced by sandy beaches while driving to the Southern part of the island.
