Blue skies, I see nothing but blue skies

Paradise is just outside the door of your Corfu vacation rental. Set in the sparkling blue waters of the Ionian Sea, the sickle-shaped island offers a diverse landscape, where sandy beaches meet rugged mountains. The island's main town, also named Corfu, features narrow cobblestone streets lined with laidback bistros, beachfront bars, and cozy boutique shops. Step back in time in the ancient city, where you'll discover a host of historic landmark attractions, such as churches, forts, and royal palaces.

Searching for adventure upon the high seas

Pry yourself from the comfort of your Corfu vacation rental and experience the great outdoors. Corfu is home to a variety of beaches, from pebbly coastlines where you can watch the sunset, to sandy shores where you can sunbathe and picnic in comfort. Rent paddle boats, kayaks, or water skis throughout the area. You can also spend the afternoon scuba diving in turquoise waters or take small chartered boats into breathtaking grottos. The Corfu Trail invites hikers and cyclist to travel the 136-mile pathway which runs across the entire island.

Culture vultures enjoy a menagerie of museums

Lose yourself in charming Old Town Corfu, where you can pause for a drink in cafe-lined arcades or take a stroll through the Spianada, the city's massive square. Make time to explore the town's two Venetian fortresses: the 15th-century Old Fortress and the 16th-century New Fortress. The Archaeological Museum of Corfu highlights ancient treasures unearthed across the island, while the Antivouniotissa Museum displays post-Byzantine religious art. The lavish Palace of St. Michael and St. George, the former residence of a 19th-century British Lord, now houses the Museum of Asian Art of Corfu, the only one of its kind in Greece.

From sunshine to showers, experience all kinds of weather

Corfu offers a Mediterranean climate ideal for leisurely island living. Spring and fall bring tepid temperatures in the high 60s and low 70s, while winters see daytime highs hovering between the high 50s and low 60s. If you've booked a Corfu vacation rental from late fall through early spring, you should come prepared for rain. November and December are the wettest months of the year so make sure you pack your galoshes and an umbrella. The region experiences the hottest conditions in July and August, when it's dry and sunny, and the highs climb into the 80s.

Beauty beyond the beach—a wonderland of groves and hills

While the island is set off the coast of Greece, its northeastern corner faces the shoreline of Albania. The island covers about 146,500 acres, and stretches approximately 40 miles long and 20 miles across at its widest point. Corfu also offers 135 miles of coastline and is surrounded by clusters of tiny satellite islands. Two mountain ranges cut across the island, with Mount Pantokrator offering the highest point at just a little over 2,900 feet. Heavy rainfall adds to the island's bright green landscape, including hillsides dotted with grape vines and groves filled with olive, pomegranate, and fig trees.
