Please note if the weather is not good for the boat trip on Tuesday, we will try to manage and reschedule it to the following days.
In addition to its picturesque setting, relaxed way of life and delectable food, the Greek island of Corfu is also steeped in cultural history. The origins of Corfu can be traced back as far as Greek Mythology. The islands Greek name, Kerkyra is related to two powerful water symbols: Poseidon, God of the sea, and Asopos, a prominent Greek river.
According to myth, the God of the sea Poseidon fell in love with the beautiful nymph Korkyra and took her to this stunning but unnamed island. In marital bliss, Poseidon named the island Korkyra after his wife. This name gradually evolved throughout time to the Greek name of Kerkyra, which the island retains to this day.
In addition to Greek mythology, the island's history is also full of battles and conquests. With castles enclosing the islands capital Corfu Town, it has been officially declared a Kastropolis, or castle city by the Greek government.
With its rich, mountainous landscape, Corfu offers a beautiful view to its visitors. The Northern area of the island has preserved its natural and architectural environment, making it popular with visitors and locals alike.
Dominated by mountains, the island has a never ending expanse of rolling hills and blossoming trees, bursting with lush vegetation. Coastal areas offer tranquil white sandy beaches, while the shimmering blue sea provides a perfect backdrop to the green Corfiot countryside.
The guests will receive daily light breakfast and lunch, also two dinners during the week. For the first night in Corfu, Just Relax will organize at the villa a welcome dinner. For breakfast you are invited to help yourself to fruit, tea, coffee, cereals bars, and nuts.
Lunch will not be served on the day off.
