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!🙏🙏🇬🇷🇬🇷

What is the best Greek island for a bachelor party?

Some of my buddies and I are considering going to Greece for my friend's bachelor party, but we're not really sure what the best island would be. We're not super young, most of us are in our mid 30s so we're not very interested in going clubbing every single night. Something relaxing would be great, with a pretty decent night life that is not too crazy, again. Do you have any advice?

What is the cheapest island in Greece?

This post is for all of my budgeters! I would love to know if anyone has advice on inexpensive islands visit in Greece. I have found that over the years, the prices of hotels and restaurants are increasing and getting way too expensive. I would love to keep traveling to Greece, because it’s my favorite destination but I don’t want to break the bank either. Any advice from seasoned Greek travelers? Thanks 😊

Be aware! Some beaches in Greece may be nude

This is just something to be aware of when traveling to Greece and this may surprise you if youre not from Europe. Some beaches in Greece are nude, and when visiting a non-nude beach, you might see some women topless. This is not as popular is it used to be in Greece. I have noticed less and less women going topless but it still happens. It is not considered rude in Greece to do, especially in front of small children. If you don't feel comfortable, just politely move away or go to another beach!
