The stunning natural beauty of the Corfu countryside is characterized by lush green vegetation often leading down to crystal-clear, sparkling blue water lapping against enchanting beaches. Through the centuries, many famous poets and writers, from Homer to Durrell, have praised Corfu’s beauty and it is justifiably referred to as the ‘Garden Isle’ or ‘Emerald Isle’.
The extensive olive groves, numbering over 4 million trees, along with the many citrus and cypress trees make Corfu seem to be a paradise on Earth. The combination of the various factors which make up the microclimate of Corfu also favours the growth of over 400 different species of wild flowers. In fact, Corfu blooms during all four seasons of the year.
