Cheap Corfu Holidays - Budget Corfu Self-Catering Accommodation

Corfu Town and South Corfu


Corfu Town (Kerkyra) is a UNESCO heritage site. It features wonderful history including Byzantine, Venetian, French and British influenced architecture, two fortresses, a port, churches and museums, as well as great shopping opportunities in the narrow streets which wind around the town. Bordering the main square and opposite the original cricket pitch and the Durrell Gardens, you will find the famous Liston Arcade with its trendy cafés and restaurants. At right angles to the Liston is the palace of St George and St Michael which now houses the Asian Art Museum. At the other end of the square, past the bandstand, is Garitsa Bay which leads round to Mon Repos, Prince Philip's birthplace. Behind the Liston you can see the rose-coloured dome of the church of St Spyridon, the island's patron saint. Corfu Town is also a culinary delight with a fabulous variety of Greek and Corfiot restaurants, tavernas, bistros and pizzerias. You should also explore the daily fish and vegetable market, especially if catering for yourself - the choice is always fresh and vast. No visit to Corfu would be complete without time spent in Corfu Town. Regular bus services operate from the port to both the north and south providing easy access to all parts of the island.

Heading south we reach Moraitika, which is just twenty kilometres south of Corfu Town, making it an ideal location for families, couples and solo visitors. The sandy beach, with a mix of shingle, provides a perfect haven for a relaxing holiday, as well as offering a variety of watersports. A short walk will take you inland to the original village of Ana Moraitka with spectacular views across the sea towards mainland Greece. One kilometre away is the charming resort of Messonghi - another great base for a relaxing holiday. There is a good variety of small self-catering apartments and family run hotels. Messonghi beach runs along the east coast and has a wide selection of Greek tavernas and snack bars, as well as restaurants offering international cuisine. The shallow waters are perfect for a family holiday. The two resorts are seperated by the Messonghi River and both provide a prefect location for those wanting to explore Corfu Town and the other resorts and traditional Corfiot village further south.

A little further south takes is the unspoilt resort of Marathias, with its long golden, sandy beach and clear blue sea. Here you will find family-run apartments and tavernas, far from the crowds. Situated on the south west coast, Marathias is a perfect resort for singles, couples and families wanting a peaceful holiday.

Kavos is located at the southern tip of Corfu. Although famous for its nightlife, Kavos also offers a great destination for a fun-filled holiday. There is a long sandy beach with sun beds and umbrellas for hire and all along the beachfront you will find a wide variety of tavernas and café-bars. Kavos is a large resort spread along several kilometres. Its centre offers a selection of eating options from fast food through to traditional Corfu Cuisine. There are also numerous bars, music bars and clubs in Kavos and during high-season many top DJs play in the resort's clubs. There are several ATMs and many gift and souvenir shops as well as mini markets as well as a 24-hour taxi rank. During the day Kavos provides a great base for exploring and there is a regular local bus service to Corfu Town and the other south coast resorts. The neighbouring island of Paxos is a great trip for a day out on a boat. Below you will find a selection of businesses promoted by Corfu Selections in Corfu Town and the south.
