Tour details.

In this tour in the southern part of Corfu, you will have the opportunity to experience the truly traditional life of the southern villages of the island and have a taste of a region unknown to tourism. An escort from our office will accompany you in every step on the way.


We drive along the south-east coast of the island, through the old fisher-village Benitses and the neighboring villages of Messonghi and Moraitika, two of the most popular tourist resorts of Corfu, before we reach the old village of  Agios Matheos. (16th century). We are now in the biggest village of Corfu.  Its population reaches 1600 inhabitants who are mainly involved in agriculture. The village is built amidst lush forests on the slopes of Mount Gamilios surrounded by many charming stone houses.


Agios Matheos consists of both modern and old buildings, monasteries and beautiful churches. Gardiki Castle is one of the most impressive ancient sites in the village. After our stop for coffe, refreshments, and snacks in the traditional kafeneio of the village, we will visit the Mavroudis family museum and oil press ( in Vraganiotika) and learn of the  process of olive oil production , and taste their different oils .

After our visit to Oip press we will head towards the beach of Issos. This wonderful beach is used for some scenes in the James Bond, moovie "For Your Eyes Only" (1981 )


We then visit the majestic Korission Lake nearby.  Korission Lake is the largest lagoon in Corfu, part of a nature reserve with sand dunes and unique wild beaches. An exceptionally beautiful Lagoon totally unspoiled and untouched by the “Development” of our times.


The multitude of endemic and migratory birds, rare flora and rich fauna have placed it under the protection of Natura 2000. You may see eagles, hawks, ducks, herons and if you are lucky, beautiful flamingos who visit the lake during their long trip.


Gerald Durrell, author and naturalist, spent many hours in this Lake observing the fauna of Corfu.


The last stop of your day, will provide you with approx. 2 ½ hours in Agios Georgios Argyrades, to explore the area, swim in the crystal clear waters, or grabbing a bite to eat. A great change to see what the South part of the Island offers.
