Strict rental requirements by the EOT (Greek Tourism and Travel Agents Organisation) ensure that rental villas have been checked for health and safety issues, including fire prevention and safety. Some villa owners rent without the required legal licences, but recently there has been a 'crackdown' on illegal internet villa rentals with large fines and in some cases the villa being sealed by the local police!
Agni Travel's villas in Corfu have all the legal licences required so you can book with confidence in the knowledge that your villa has been checked for all aspects of health and safety.
Location of Corfu
So, where is Corfu? The island of Corfu is located just off the West coast of Greece. Corfu enjoys a mild Mediterranean climate along with excellent beaches making it a popular destination for holiday makers. Corfu is very green compared to other Greek islands: hot and dry summers along with winter rain creates lush vegetation which is dominated by over 2 million olive trees. These olive trees on Corfu are the main cultivation, although Corfu's tourism now provides the most income.
Corfu has seen a colourful past where Greek, Roman, Venetian and French occupations have left their marks, including two forts. Many myths and legends feature Corfu including: Hercules, Homer, Odysseus and Jason with his Argonauts. Not surprisingly, Corfu town is on the UNESCO World Heritage List and this has helped to protect and preserve the architecture and monuments on Corfu.
