Property for sale in South Corfu
If you’re wondering which part of Corfu to buy property in, there are many reasons why the south of the island is a superb choice.
It’s perhaps best known for the bright lights of party town Kavos, but the rest of this area is relatively sedate and offers easy access to the rugged sandy beaches of the west coast and the east coast’s wonderful crystalline waters.
Lush green hills separate the south’s two contrasting coastline and play host to hidden rural villages connected by rambiling roads and trails.
This might be the most natural, unique and unspoilt version of Corfu, so it could be the ideal area for you to buy a villa or a plot of land for future development.

Where should you buy property in South Corfu?
There are countless choices when it comes to attractive property locations in the south of Corfu, so your only problem might be information overload. However, a quick rundown of the finest features of some of its most popular areas might help you narrow down your choice.
If you’re considering purchasing Chalikounas property, you’ll regularly find everything from large residential complexes to luxury poolside villages and promising hillside land plots to delightful detached properties. The 3km long golden sand beach here is a stunning sight to behold, and it’s also close to Lake Korisson and only 25km from Corfu Town. Sun, sea, sand and top-notch transport links – what’s not to love?
Alternatively, Lefkimmi is a large port town 40km south of capital Kerkyra and, as well as verdant vineyards and olive groves, it’s the perfect departure point for ferries to smaller islands like Antipaxos and Paxos. It doesn’t have a highly-developed night-time economy, but if its understated bars and restaurants don’t have the required buzz, Kavos is a reasonably short taxi ride away.
If you’re still not tempted, perhaps Petriti can tip the balance in the south coast’s favour for you? This compact and bijou fishing village is an hour away from Kerkyra and its modest marina is set up perfectly for slaking your thirst with a cold beer while you people watch and shoot the breeze with friends and family. If you appreciate serenity and privacy, this location is worth looking at more closely.
There’s even more to Corfu’s south coast than these three lovely locations, but hopefully their benefits are enough to convince you that you would feel comfortable setting up a home or business there.
