Corfu

An island unique across the world; a key-shaped green rock in the Ionian ready to unlocks your soul. Corfu Town is its capital town – filled with history, memory, creativity and intrigue.

Already adorning the UNESCO World Heritage List, Corfu’s Old Town area is a maze of winding alleys where every corner hides a surprise. Goethe, Oscar Wilde, Lawrence Durrell and Henry Miller didn’t just adore this place, they took inspiration from it and channelled it into their writing.

Picturesque Venetian houses shine in the midsummer sun, standing next to fortresses, castles, clock towers, sculptures and stately buildings. The polyphony of influences grants Corfu a singular charm: Phaecians, Corinthians, Athenians, Romans, Byzantines, Roma, Venetians, Brits, French, Modern Greeks…

The recipe not just for a multicultural town with stunning architecture but one whose people are, to our days, enamoured with music, literature and the arts. Melodies echo in the city’s streets as philharmonic bands parade and buskers flaunt their talents. After all, it was dubbed a bastion of Western civilisation as early as the 1710s, for successfully thwarting the invading Ottomans, who never managed to lay claim to this island.

From Korkyra in Ancient times, the town was renamed Corfu – “the city on the peaks” – in the Middle Ages. Today, it is a vibrant city unquestionably worth exploring, filled with ample opportunity for entertainment and excitement, including museums, restaurants, shops, festivals, monuments and nightlife spots.

Moraitika

Conveniently situated on the south-eastern part of the Ionian island of Corfu, Moraitika is a beachfront village that’s less than 30 minutes from Corfu airport.

As you descend to this emerald seaside haven, what you see hasn’t changed much from 1960, when Miramare founder Gerasimos Patronikolas – the husband of Aristotle Onassis’s sister Callirrhoe – saw when he arrived: unspoilt nature, tall trees descending to the shore and a magical seascape that stretches as far as the eye can see.

Moraitika

A bon viveur and a visionary, Gerasimos was inspired by the sheer beauty of this spot to commission the creation of the Mediterranean resort of his dreams: a Corfu hotel on the beach that would capture the very essence of luxury and deliver it without unnecessary bells and whistles. It wasn’t long before the Miramare – and Moraitika with it – started attracting jet setters, VIPs, and even literal royalty.

Achilleion Palace

Now, let us tell you another, even older story, which reveals the timelessness of the appeal of Corfu.

Let’s go back to the 19th century. Princess Sissi – Empress Elisabeth of Austria and Queen of Hungary – was known as “the lonely empress”. From day one, her life has been marked with turmoil and political intrigue. On a day blessed by the Greek sun, she arrives on Corfu – and she’s instantly enamoured with it. Here, she finds the serenity she craves; the nature that excites her; echoes of the ancient myths she adores; the sound of waves that soothes her soul.

Achilleion Palace

Such was Sissi’s love for the island and Greece in general that she even learned the language and spent prolonged periods of time here. After the tragic loss of her only son, Rudolf, Sissi commissioned a stately palace in Gastouri to be dedicated to him. Its theme? Achilles, the brave but tragic hero from the Iliad. He’s found in statues and paintings, while the panoramic balconies and scenic location serve the visitor of the Achilleion with memorable vistas of rolling hills and the glistening sea stretching to the horizon.

After changing many hands throughout the centuries, the Achilleion is now owned by the Greek state. It serves as a museum certainly worth visiting and it’s also just 10km from the hotel. Merging the 19th century together with Greek antiquity and Corfu’s nature, it plays host to fascinating sculptures, antiquities and impressive architecture by Raffaele Carita.

  • "Wonderful Honeymoon Hotel"

    What a fabulous hotel this was. The scenery is absolutely stunning and so calm and serene with the lapping gentle waves against the shore. The room was equipped with everything you could possibly need. The organisation for Covid safety measures was superb. The food was excellent, service outstanding and housekeeping standards and general hospitality were very good. Thank you. Would highly recommend this hotel. We hope to return sometime soon.
  • "Absolutely perfect!"

    The Domes Miramare is an opulent, stylish, adults-only beach resort. It’s sublime location is stunning. It’s situated on the shores of the Ionian Sea, near the pretty hilly village of Moraitika, around 30 minutes south of Corfu Town. Upon arrival, you soon appreciate the quality of the resort, from the warm friendly staff to the well-designed and spacious facilities. Breakfast is served at the Makris Restaurant, which is literally situated on the shore with unspoilt views across the sea towards the Greek mainland. The resort has all the usual luxury treatments available and there’s a gym in the lush gardens too. The bar by the pool is position perfectly to take in the views. Our visit was faultless and had a very relaxing and enjoyable time. We stayed here for five nights and plan to return in the near future.
