Corfu is the largest of the Ionian Islands which lie just off Greece. It's been a popular tourist spot for years, and this isn't set to change in 2012 or 2013. This means there's plenty of choice for cheap package holidays in Corfu, but if you're after something different then you will also find an abundant natural beauty.
It's not just about the run-of-the-mill package holiday in Corfu, in recent years with the growth of independent travel means it's easy to make your own way too. Make your own travel arrangements by booking a cheap flights to Corfu and then search for a hotel in Corfu so you can choose to be at the heart of the action, on the fringes or away from it all.
If you're after a cheap summer holiday, Corfu can be tricky as the best weather and the best prices coincide. July and August are the hottest months, but book your 2012 or 2013 trip early to have any chance of getting a cheap holiday in Corfu at this time. For the best of the weather and kinder prices try the months either side of summer (September, October, May and June). Winter definitely offers the best chance of cheap holidays in Corfu, however, there's no guarantee of great weather and many of the attractions could be closed.
Ypsos, Gouvia, Sidari and Kavos are the party hotspots, whilst Agnos, Kalami and Agios Stefanos are much quieter. Once you've had your fill of the beach try heading for Corfu town which is remarkably attractive and dates back to the fourteenth century. Try adding something extra to your holiday by taking in a local event. You could try the intriguing Cheese Eating Sunday in February, the Festival of Folklore Dance in July and the Corfu Sardine Festival in August. With cheap car hire in Corfu it's easy to get around and see everything.
