Sleepy hilltop villages, rugged foot paths through unclaimed olive groves, which lead to a secluded beach you can call your own, are part of Corfu’s authentic charm.

Even Corfu Town, with its cosmopolitan flair and UNESCO World Heritage status, offers visitors an experience that is culturally rich, historically fascinating and architecturally very beautiful.

The opposite of authentic would be pretending to be something one is not. In which case, Corfu is much more than it is made out to be.

If anything, the island’s many treasures have not been acknowledged or praised enough. While staying at Delfinia Hotels in Moraitika, you will discover exactly what we mean.

Corfu’s seductive south exudes an unpretentious charm that captures the heart of those looking for what’s true and real.

The remote hilltop village of Chlomos, in seeking to escape the violent rampages of eighteenth century pirates, has preserved its original cultural heritage to this day.

Agios Mattheos might not be a seaside resort, but nestled among million of olive trees it has become the centre of Corfu’s very own, international and highly acclaimed olive oil exporters.

The entire south east coast that runs from Messonghi to Petriti, is laced with small unassuming fish restaurants. The village of Petriti is the focus of Corfu’s professional fishing industry and the best place to taste fresh seafood.

For a Greek cup of coffee, walk up to the small forgotten village of Episkopiana through the old village of Moraitika. The views from up here across the Ionian Sea are spectacular.

Much of what is authentic is because some have followed their own rhythm of development. Some say it’s because we don’t want to change. Others believe it is because we stick to what makes us feel authentically happy!

We would love to hear what makes you authentically happy when in Corfu?
