Writing in the Independent, Cathy Packe observes that a Corfu holiday could be ideal for those hoping to avoid busy resorts this summer.
While no stranger to mass tourism, the island includes pockets of seclusion that are a dream come true for the more relaxed traveller, she recommends.
Beach bunnies should appreciate the 217 kilometres of coast, while the interior is also said to be attractive, with much of the terrain mountainous.
The island's north-east was recommended for tourists wanting to book Corfu villa holidays, with James Villas highlighted as one provider of "attractive" accommodation in the area.
One north-east based resort is Nissaki, which Corfu Today describes as small, fairly quiet and beautiful.
The publication recommends a Corfu villa break in Nissaki for families in particular, while couples might also appreciate its relaxed vibe.
