The Ionians

The ideal place for a Greek holiday

The Ionians lie off Greece’s western coast. All the islands have a distinct Italian touch except for Corfu, which has retained some signs of the old British protectorate. The Ionians are well known for their beautiful sandy beaches, clear waters, scenic villages and charming countryside. Your Greek Odyssey will certainly remain engraved for a lifetime.
