Corfu - Incredibly Inspiring!

This summer we decided to try something new, and went to Corfu, Greece for the holidays. I have to say, that I don't regret it a single second!!

Corfu is quite different than the usual greek islands, it's very influenced by it's Venetian history, both in food and the architecture & interior design. Cafe Bristol (above), was probably my favorite cafe, with beautiful and traditional floor tiles, paired with hi gloss painted chairs, and the beyond awesome light fixture above the bar.

Most of the buildings have intricate detailing.

This building was my absolute favorite, with perfectly symmetric window decor.

Pretty fantastic, isn't it??

Grand and romantic :)

Café Liston had probably the best Club Sandwich my husband had ever tasted, and fried potatoes that were out of this world! If you ever go there, try the larged mixed plate (or something like that). You get a HUGE plate for four people with the most delicious food (most from the grill, but also bruschetta, peppers etc). Best.food.ever!!)

Corfu Town also has two fortresses, which are really stunning. We visited one of them.

There's a small canal separating the fortress from the town.

We stayed at a spa hotel (Kontokali Bay, Resort & Spa) and it was absolutely perfect! We booked a family room, and it had everything we needed. The spa was spectacular, which I totally didn't expect! 

 It was ridiculously hot, and we had around 35 degrees (celsius) in the evenings.

The nature is also very different from the other Greek Islands, as it's incredibly green.

Another fortress on the west coast of the island that we climbed.

The water is turquoise, hot and absolutely beautiful, it practically BEGS you to get photographed!

This is probably what intrigued me the most. It's a fantastic old villa close to our hotel, which seems to be in pretty bad shape. It has this incredible aura of old glamour to it (like much of the island does), and I'm curious about who lived there, what the decor was like and what their lives were like. 

This is the closest I got... It really looked incredible!! I would go back in a heartbeat if I could get closer to this house. (I will probably go back no matter what, I love, love, loved this island!!)

Hope you've had a FANTASTIC summer so far!!

Any exciting planned??

big hug
