Hi We Lived on Corfu Island for 15 years until my late wife became very ill and we had to return to England for specialist treatment. what a wonderful place to be at Easter all the lovely spring flowers and so many celebrations, it is without a doubt the place which you should visit . these links will show you some of the celebrations.
https://niakas.com/tours/corfu-easter/ and https://www.corfutoday.com/christmas.htm Ágios Stéfanos (San Stefanos) is a wonderful place to stop very quiet and laid back. if you would like some more information please message me.

Trust that this helps.

As Les has already said both are very beautiful in their own ways, Easter with the island in full bloom in Mykonos where we lived for many years,the atmosphere is full of joy and happiness,the Monastery in my village Ano Mera is something else,the festivities,on the water front there are Greek Dancers....I have posted a video on Mykonos forum, have a look and you will see what I mean..

My favorite month t go to Greece is October! It's warm (80s) and very pleasant. A nice contrast to my life here in New England. Leaves turning, cooler days... The island of Crete is especially great. I was in Crete last week of October once and had beach weather every day. The crowds are diminished, but there are still enough people around to make things feel lively. I have never been at Easter or Christmas...

Easter time is magical and that Spring time feeling after the winter, islands full of flowers,not seen again after the hot weather, people in jovial moods, celebrations every where, workers returning to begin the busy summer season, making new friends, sharing experiences, some just graduated.... had many young University students coming to do their summer tourism training with us... 😅😅.....ferries and ships commencing the summer schedule, people painting and decorating their houses, plenty to talk about after the winter months... churches preparing to welcome the worshippers to the masses,the unforgettable scent from the Churches which linger on in the streets,a reminder of all is well and let the celebrations and festivities begin!❤️❤️Dox oto Theo!🙏🙏🇬🇷🇬🇷

Porto Katsiki in Lefkada is one of the best beaches!

Porto Katsiki is definitely one of the best beaches in Lefkada and probably the west coast of Greece. I suggest that you go to the beach pretty early, as the parking gets filled up and it will be difficult to find free parking. I personally like to go to organize beaches, which there are plenty of. You can also find a secluded area of the beach that is open to the public, and you’re able to bring your own towels, umbrellas, and food. Enjoy!

Greece is the word for summer holidays.

Make sure you book in advance! Greece is fully booked this summer!

I can't say this enough! Please make sure that you book way ahead of time for your trip to Greece. I've been looking for hotels and flights, and almost everything is booked. The only air B&Bs and hotels that are left are either extremely expensive or very remote. It seems that people have been at home during Covid, and are feeling to get to Greece. This is a lesson learned for next year. Good luck to everyone!

Where to travel in Greece if you love wine!

If you love wine, Greece is some of the best places to go to! There are great wines all over Greece, but certain areas are revered for their high quality grapes and crisp wines. Some of my personal favorites are Santorini wines. For Santorini, I specifically recommend Assyrtiko which is the white wine that is produced most from Santorini. The second best place to go to Greece for wine is Thrace which is best if you like red wines such as Cabernet Sauvignon which is also popular in regions from across the world. I know Crete is also popular, but I have never been so I cannot comment on their wines!
