Corfu, the second largest island in the Eptanisa, a group known as the "Seven Islands," is unique. Most of the Greek Islands are located in the Aegean, yet Corfu is in the Ionian Sea. Corfu also possesses a far more temperate climate than Greece's other isles. Corfu is dotted with cypress and olive trees, and the air is perfumed with the scent of orange and lemon groves.
The coves near this clifftop village offer some of the finest scenery in the entire Mediterranean, consisting of six, small turquoise bodies of water nestled in a hilly coastline draped in olive, cypress and lemon trees.
