Corfu is among the most beautiful and popular islands of Greece. Due to its strong historical connection with Europe, this was among the first Greek islands to open to tourism. Located on the north western side of the country, Corfu island has a cosmopolitan feeling combined with a special traditional character. Paleokastritsa, Sidari, Kassiopi and Acharavi are nice tourist places on the northern side of the island, while the inland is dotted with lovely villages and many sightseeings. In addition to the wonderful beaches, the highlight of the island is Corfu Old Town with the characteristic Venetian style.

'Corfu town is Venice and Naples, a touch of France and more than a dash of England, apart of course from being Greek'. In the beautifully preserved Old Town of Corfu, a UNESCO world heritage site, Renaissance, Baroque and Classical “repertoire” came to be successfully applied to local artistic traditions. Palaces, fortresses, austere public buildings of the Venetian rule uniquely blend with lines of drying washing in tiny alleyways and small secluded squares. Strolling through a complex of narrow cobbled streets with stairways and vaulted passages, the so-called “kantoúnia”, will make visitors feel as if they’ve travelled to Genoa or Naples.

The nearby island, known as Pontikonisi (Greek meaning "mouse island"), though small is very green with abundant trees, and at its highest natural elevation (excluding its trees or man-made structures, such as the monastery). Pontikonisi is home of the monastery of Pantokrator, it is the white stone staircase of the monastery that when viewed from afar gives the impression of a (mouse) tail which lent the island its name: 'mouse island'. Visitors should not miss this opportunity to tour the Achilleion Palace, built by the Empress Elizabeth of Austria in 1891. View her breathtaking gardens as well as a spectacular panoramic view of the Ionian Sea. The Achilleion Palace also houses the Terrace of the Muses, which was built as a tribute to the nine muses of Greek mythology.

Due to the successive dominations of the Venetians, the French and the British over the centuries, the island has primarily become part of the Western rather the Levantine world. Their culture wielded strong influence in the city: it was here that the first Greek University (the Ionian Academy), the first Philharmonic Orchestra and the First School of Fine Arts were founded.
Corfu is one of the liveliest islands in the Ionians and offers a great variety of bars and night clubs. Corfiot cuisine is neither spicy nor bland, but rich in the flavours of the Mediterranean. It is steeped in history and tradition. Specialties consist of local ingredients found on the island, especially olives, lemons, vegetables, tomatoes and fish.

Corfu's little known golf course is one of the 19 greatest championship courses in Europe. Located in the Ropa Valley, this 18-hole golf, par-72 course, designed by Robert Trent Jones, with its excellent clubhouse and restaurant, combines the natural landscape of the area with well thought out hazards, making it a fine course for players of all standards.

Argirades is a large picturesque village on the way to Lefkimi, located 33 km south of Corfu Town. The village lies on the slopes of a verdurous hill, offering lovely scenes to the surrounding area. With its traditional architecture, narrow streets with arches and beautiful beaches nearby, it becomes very popular tourist place. Here is the most beautiful beach of Corfu - the beach of Issos in close distance to Korission lake and the attractive secluded sandy beach 2 km away from the center of St. Georgios Argirades, which attracts with its fine yellow sand, cleanness and length of 3 km in south direction getting to the beaches of Ag. Mattheos and Santa Barbara. A few kilometers northern to the village there is the Korrision Lake, protected by the Greek State. Тhe lake is linked with the sea via a narrow and shallow strip of water.

The resort of St. George Argirades has two main beaches reached by quiet country lanes. Both beaches are wide, have easy-on-the-feet sand and are safely shallow for children. Sand dunes and a lake add interest to the north beach at St. George and a little effort is rewarded with the discovery of isolated coves for more undisturbed bathing. There are around 10 km of including the busier South beach and the resort runs along a parallel road and is bordered by olive groves and cypress trees that benefit from the winter rains. One of the assassination scenes of J. Bond film “For your eyes only” was filmed there. St. Georgios beach is well organized and considered to be one of the best in Corfu – awarded with blue flag. Sand dunes, isolated coves and a lake add interest to the resort. St George is an ideal base for those who like walking and cycling. Paragliding, snorkeling, wind-surfing and jet skiing are among the water sports on offer here. Boat trips are available from the beach. Bus service connects the village of Agios Georgios to the capital of Corfu twice a day and Kavos with its famous nightlife is about 14 km away.
