Lavender Cove is conveniently only a short drive from Athens airport or city centre. So whether you pick up a hire car from the airport or harbour yourself or if we arrange your transportation to Korfos you could be with us starting your holiday within an hour and a half of arriving.
Korfos is a traditional Greek fishing village. Tucked away in a quiet bay, it is accessible by a single no through road, so it enjoys the luxury of no unnecessary traffic or visitors. One of the delights of visiting Korfos is the scenic drive to reach the village, through the pine drenched winding hills, only to emerge suddenly and dramatically, aloft, looking down over the sparkling azure waters of the Mediterannean dotted with small islands. Sunrise and sunset over these hills and waters is something to behold.
The numerous Greek islands speckling the seas around Greece have great and varied appeal. A trip to Greece would not be complete without a trip to one of them. There are several islands easily accessible from Korfos that would make for a fantastic day trip. You can easily visit Hydra, Poros and Spetses.
