The Independent notes that the island is the ideal antidote for travellers who want to experience a sun-baked break in peace and quiet.
Archaeology aficionados will not be disappointed - there is much to explore around the island, which has long been popular with holidaying Britons.
"But as the sun beat down day after day, we became less and less inclined to leave the clean, cool villa, content to watch life passing by below us from the pool and retreating to the shady balconies for sleepy lunches," the publication reveals.
Corfu villa holiday makers may wish to explore the White House, once inhabited by author Lawrence Durrell, whose book, My Family and Other Animals, was written on the island.
The Times last week observed that Corfu holidays are an accessible way to experience the Mediterranean's culture, history and climate.
