Household holidays in Corfu: A bit travelogue

[enthält Werbung] Ahhhh! After a fairly combined spring, we have been trying ahead to summer time, solar, sea and sand between our toes this yr. The Greek island of Corfu was the seaside vacation vacation spot of our want this yr.

Why? I’ve already spent a few of my holidays on the Greek mainland or Greek islands and likewise sailed across the latter on a three-week crusing journey with my mother and father. I at all times got here again with fantastic reminiscences and as somewhat fan of Greece.

Our journey was once more organized by ITS Coop Journey. Like final yr (it went to the dreamy Algarve, have a look right here) all the things went easily once more this time. Thanks, thanks, thanks for that!

The local weather

Corfu is positioned within the Ionian Sea, east of southern Italy and west of the Albanian and Greek mainland. We traveled on the finish of June and had daytime temperatures round 32 levels all week. In the course of the day there was often a lightweight wind, which made the times on the sea and on the pool actually nice.

Mainly, there’s a Mediterranean local weather in Corfu. It’s best to go to the island in the summertime months from June to August. Then it’s at all times heat and principally dry. Because it usually rains within the winter months, Corfu – in distinction to different Greek islands – is sooo so inexperienced. Numerous olive bushes, cypresses, acacias and citrus vegetation nestle across the hills of Corfu.

The time distinction

The time distinction between Zurich and Corfu was plus an hour throughout our journey time. Within the night that is splendid as a result of the kids are then match longer. So you may go to dinner somewhat later and finish the day comfortably by the ocean or pool.

The flight

After our flight, an aged girl got here to us and praised the Minis for his or her good conduct. Phew … fortunate once more! As a result of, as everyone knows, the little ones above the clouds can generally get impatient (the vacation shock bag might help). Nevertheless, because the flight solely lasted two hours – which I contemplate very family-friendly – it was tremendous relaxed.

The lodges

We have been allowed to spend our household holidays in Corfu within the resort Ikos Dassia. The 5-star lodge was opened in 2018 and, in my view, is characterised by its absolute family-friendliness, the well-kept gardens, the gorgeous swimming pools, its location on the turquoise blue sea and the high-quality all-inclusive idea. We’d come again right here in a heartbeat!

My companions at ITS Coop Journey additionally suggest the 2 4-star lodges LTI Grand Lodge Glyfada and Mayor Capo di Corfu in addition to the 5-star Kontokali Bay Resort & Spa for seaside holidays in Corfu. All lodges are positioned immediately on the gorgeous seaside and are notably appropriate for households. And once I take a look at the photographs of those lodges, I wish to get on the aircraft once more and fly again on trip!


The ocean, sure the ocean … It has a magical attraction on me yearly. I like simply standing there, looking on the huge blue, trying on the countless horizon and letting the waves wash round my toes.

The ocean round Corfu is crystal clear. Our seaside was gently sloping and we may simply wade out just a few meters with out it getting too deep. For the minis, it was a spotlight to look at the fish via the clear sea floor, which romped about within the maze of our legs.

Corfu with youngsters

Corfu is totally different from different Greek islands. Guests won’t discover the everyday white homes with their blue domes right here. Somewhat, the structure displays the affect of Venetian, French and British rule. You may see that particularly within the previous city of the capital Kerkyra.

The inexperienced hills of the island, paired with the colourful home facades of town, look extraordinarily picturesque. We sailed alongside the coast from Dassia to Kerkyra at sundown and have been capable of gather some fantastic impressions. As well as, I used to be instructed by the locals that the capital Corfu can be price a go to! And there are additionally tons of gorgeous bays to find …

So. And now I am going to simply let the photographs communicate for themselves. As a result of they are saying greater than a thousand phrases, as you realize!
