Corfu - Greece

Corfu, the largest Island of Greece and the most northern located Island of the Ionian ones.

…she spent a lot of time on Corfu, in their Achillion, a converted villa according to her wishes near the village of Gastouri, not far away from Corfu town.

In addition to the Mediterranean climate she was interested in the Greek mythology and the worship of the legendary hero Achilles.

But of course it is not only the history of Sissi, which makes Corfu so worth seeing. Visit the museums in Corfu capital Kerkira - You walk on quiet mountain paths through loving preserved old mountain villages, visit the monks in their secluded monasteries or enjoy the unique light of Greece along the creeks on the esmerald sea.

Corfu: centuries-old olive trees, towering slender cypress trees, a rugged coastline with beautiful coves and idyllic beaches and the friendly and lovable inhabitants of the island will make your vacation an unforgettable experience
