Property for sale in North West Corfu
Corfu has a rich history that stretches back over 3000 years and it’s stunning beaches, lush greenery, historical sites and welcoming culture make it one of the jewels in the crown of contemporary Greek tourism.
The second-largest of the Ionian islands, with a population of over 100,000, the etymology of the name Corfu is Corypho, which means ‘place with peaks’ – probably because of the twin peaks of its largest mountain Pantokrator.
Corfu Town, Perama, Benitses, Messonghi, Gouvia and Dassia are all popular tourist areas. However, if you’d like to lay down roots on the island and purchase a business property or traditional house, towns and villages in the west and northwest, like Arillas, Peroulades and Magoulades, are also worth consideration.
