My favourite place: Corfu, Greece
Continuing our historical holidays series, Saul David explores a Greek island getaway that owes much of its popularity to the Venetians
I first holidayed in Corfu, a large leg-shaped island on the north-west frontier of Greece, when I was 11 years old. We drove all the way in a VW camper van, covering the last leg from Bari to Corfu Town in a ferry. After a week and many adventures on the road, we set up camp in a beautiful two-bedroom cottage on Corfu’s unfashionable south-west coast, near the town of Agios Gordios.
