Leafy, lush, historic Corfu welcomes with the sweet aroma of pine forests and citrus trees, its jungle-thick greenery contrasting pleasingly with scores of sandy beaches under a precipitous rocky coastline.

Official star rating:
There’s always a hotel which is far from the madding August crowds if you look hard enough, and, in super-saturated Corfu, Labranda Sandy Beach Resort in the southwest of the island fulfils these conditions.
Close both to Issos beach and the Korission lagoon, this is a resort whose USP lies within its gourmet network of six restaurants – the gelateria is as good as any in Italy – and four bars.
The kids’ programs are particularly extensive and appealing, but there are music and culture shows for adults in the evenings with higher standards than the entertainment offered elsewhere.
