Corfu has long been one of the most popular luxury villa rental destinations in Greece, and is also one of the most accessible of the Greek Islands, with direct flights from many European airports. With over 3 million olive trees, Corfu is also one of the greenest of the Greek Islands. As part of the Ionian island group, it has a long and fascinating history, with Greek, Roman, Venetian, French and British occupations all leaving their marks. To help preserve the architecture and historic monuments, including the two forts, Corfu town is on the UNESCO world heritage list. The Old Fortress, dating from the 6th century was built by the Venetians and housed the entire population of the town until the 13th century. A stroll through the Old Fortress will take you through tunnels, past abandoned barracks to bastions and look-out points. The top of the fortress gives a panoramic view overlooking Corfu Town.
