Telegraph: Gardens of Corfu

3 May 2021

5 days from £3,480pp

Since antiquity, from Homer’s Odyssey across the centuries to the Durrell family’s stay on the island in the 1930s,
writers, poets, artists, gardeners, travellers, statesmen and royalty have all been bewitched by the magical beauty of Corfu. With its lush vegetation, wildflowers and silver olive groves, punctuated by cypresses and stunning views of the Ionian Sea, it is sometimes known as ‘the Garden Isle’. 
 
  • Visit author Rachel Weaving's private terraced garden at Villa Zetouna 
  • Explore Corfu Town with a walking tour 
  • Enjoy wine tasting at the Theotoky Estate Vineyard
  • Visit the private garden of Thomas Doxiadis
  • Special invitation to the Rothschild Estate
  • Stay in the glamorous, five-star Domes Miramare Hotel 
Corfu is indeed one of the most garden-friendly of the Greek islands – the greenest of those in the Aegean and with a higher annual rainfall than London. And because of its varied past, British, French, Venetian and Greek influences in architecture, agriculture and gardening are all clear to see. This tour focuses on the work of a new wave of contemporary garden designers who are sensitive to the Mediterranean style and use many native plants as well as those adapted to tolerate the hotter dry summers.We will see English-born Jennifer Gay’s work at Rou and Kassiopia, and offer a chance to visit the Rothschild Estate, where a host of designers have taken a part in creating a magical haven. We have chosen the five-star Domes Miramare hotel, a former Onassis villa stretching alongside the private beach where family, jet setters, politicians and billionaires were entertained in lavish style, sunbathing under the Corfiot sun. The tradition continues and all reserved rooms are super-comfortable and offer views of the Ionian Sea.
