On your next trip to Corfu make sure to consider employing our Corfu car hire services as your main means of transportation around the island. Corfu, or Kerkyra, is the northernmost Ionian Island, being situated in the Adriatic sea.
The island is served by the Corfu Airport which sees many local as well as international flights. If you’re landing here you can use our Corfu car rental services to have a car of your choice ready and waiting for you at the airport so that you can start driving towards your destination almost as soon as you touch down.
Each of the various regions and settlements of the island have something in particular to offer. For instance Corfu Town which is known in Greek as either Kerkira or Kerkyra, is the largest settlement on the island and as a result it is the most important one considering that this is where the airport is situated and that most cruise ships dock here. It is a small town by any definition but it is pleasant and it caters well to its tourists.
The northern part of the island tends to be more mountainous and is wider than the rest of it featuring coastal areas that are very well developed and good beaches, even if they are a bit pebbly. The southern part of the island on the other hand, is only a few miles across and tends to have sandier beaches.
There are several villages on the island which are worth the visit, a couple of them worth mentioning being Nymphes, Kynopiastes and Lakones.
Nymphes is a relatively large village being surrounded by a lot of water, wonderful vegetation and legends. The legends gave the place its name, it is said that in olden times Nymphs used to bathe in the local waterfalls. Once you see the place for yourself you will understand why such legends arose, the place of of great beauty indeed.
Two other attractions that can be found here are the Agriculture Co-operative where you can get sweets and liquor made out of koum-kouats and just outside the village you can visit Askitario a small but very old monastery.
These are of course only a few of the places that you can visit while in Corfu so make sure to consider employing our Corfu car hire services so that you can better experience the island’s offers.
