The sleepy and rural island of Corfu is different things to different people. It is home to 4 million olive trees, thanks to intermittent but torrential rains from September to June. It's also a designated Unesco heritage site because the Old Town of Corfu, dominated by its fortresses of Venetian origin constitutes an architectural example of fortification. In addition, it's home to endless sandy beaches with stunning sandstone formations, as if the Ionian Sea moulded the sand like a potter. How many shades of blue can you count? Just sit back in your lounge chair and watch the waves breaking. . .
