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 to rent one of the many villas for your next holiday. Corfu is very green compared to other Greek islands: hot and dry summers along with winter rain create 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.
