Britain and Corfu have enjoyed a special relationship since the days of the Protectorate, and Corfu continues to enjoy the company of a throng of British celebrities and politicians, as well as aristocracy. British visitors to Corfu make up a substantial proportion of the overall summer population and so a significant number choose to buy a property in Corfu and make this a second or permanent home. Most Corfu villages have British nationals among their residents, the north east in particular.
This is not to say that the island has become British, but rather that the British in Corfu embrace the culture and add little welcome quirks of their own.
Buying a property or land to build the ideal home is among the most exciting purchases that can be made. A house is a future; it is a part of you and it becomes a part of the family history. It will hold memories and dreams, the laughter of friends and relatives, dinners and drinks. Your home is your sanctuary, the place where you can focus your values and protect what you love and hold most dear.
We understand that the decision to buy isn’t necessarily easy, but when you find your ideal property you will know it instinctively; it will feel right when you walk through the door and you will be able to see how it will become everything you have dreamed of in a home in Corfu. When this happens, Salco Real Estate will be on hand to guide you through the process, helping you every step of the way as you make your Corfu dream a reality.
The island of Corfu is the ideal backdrop to your perfect overseas home. The winters are temperate, with glistening dew on olive trees, fireside drinks and roasted chestnuts. The autumns are mellow with their soft mists caressing the valleys, and spring is a bursting kaleidoscope of colour. The summers are hot, specially created for lazing on Ionian beaches, sipping long, cool drinks by turquoise pools, taking evening strolls, and staying up late in vibrant cocktail bars.
The principle attraction of owning a home in Corfu is simple: a better quality of life for you and your family, and an invitation into the rich and spirited culture that is uniquely Greece.
