Corfu holidays 'among the loveliest in Greece'

In news that may interest Brits considering a Corfu vila break, the Independent has described the Ionian destination as "one of Greece's loveliest islands".

With a fascinating past that still displays the scars of invasions by Romans, Venetians, Normans, French, Germans, Turks and the British, history buffs may find plenty of food for thought on Corfu.

According to the newspaper, there are three particularly pleasant areas of Corfu Town - the original Campiello quarter, the Jewish quarter and the Esplanade.

"Corfu also provides easy access to smaller, simpler islands," the publication adds, also observing the draw of the island's beaches.

In related news that may interest those considering a Corfu holiday, ArtInfo recently reported on the island's Museum of Asian Art after a piece by Toshusai Sharaku was discovered there.
