The most amazing thing about Corfu is its verdant nature. Corfu is a green island, because of its lush vegetation all year round, full of olive trees, cypresses, and a wealth of other plants, insects, birds and animals. It’s always been a very fertile and popular island with a rich history. Many different cultures have left their mark on the island and even now are shaping its future.
In fact, the last years more and more people have come to Corfu to escape the bustle of everyday life in their homelands. Many of those people adopt a holistic lifestyle and alternative forms of medicine such as homeopathy, acupuncture, meditation, and all kinds of massage are flourishing on Corfu. Recycling, green energy and organic agriculture are other facets of this green turn of Corfu.
