Corfu's West Coast

The Emperor’s playground
This Holiday in a nutshell
  • self-guided hotel-to-hotel walking, luggage transported
  • panoramic walks above the coast
  • stay in delightful country hotels
  • glorious sunsets

The charms of Corfu’s west coast have been known for some time, but thankfully it remains largely unspoiled. Europe’s nobility, including Empress Elizabeth (Sisi) of Austria and Kaiser Wilhelm II of Germany holidayed here in the 19th century – and Prince Philip was born here, too, into the Greek royal family. Wooded hillsides of olive groves slope down towards the sea, and sandy bays alternate with rocky coves and villages of brightly painted houses.

Once you’ve seen the sweeping views from Pelekas across the tree-clad slopes, you’ll understand why Kaiser Wilhelm liked to picnic nearby.

Initially following the long-distance Corfu Trail, our enchanting holiday is a journey from south to north, leading you along ancient footpaths and winding tracks above the coast, between olives, cypresses, maritime pines and holm oaks. The eclectic mix of hotels in which you stay are all located in quiet, peaceful grounds, and most command superlative views of the sunsets which add an extra allure to this gem of an island.
