Location & Climate

Hotel Albatros is located in Moraitica, one of Corfus oldest and most picturesque villages. At the 2 km long beachside, you can enjoy a clean and blue shallow sea, which is ideal for families with children. Moraitica has also a very active nightlife with numerous restaurants, taverns and also bars and dance clubs.

Right next to Moraitica there is the old fishing village of Messoghi; with the river of the same name as a natural border. Beautiful fish tavernas and relaxing walks at seaside complete the picture. In the inland you can visit the Serbian Cemetery – a Monument of Serbian troops from the First World War – and just above it the medieval fortress of Gardiki.

The tour continues to the unsurpassed beauty of Lake Korission and its unique cedar forest with a rich flora and fauna, where you can walk in the sand dunes of fine golden sand. There you can enjoy a majestic sunset or swim in the sandy waters of the western coast of the region at the beaches of Prasoudi, Chalikounas, Paramonas, Aghios Georgios, Issos and Marathias.

Another attraction are the traditional villages Clomos, Aghios Dimitrios and Aghios Mathaios perched high in the mountains, with old beautiful churches, chapels, monasteries and hiking paths for walkers and mountain bikers, which together constitute a peerless holiday location.

A few kilometers further to the North after the old fishing village of Benitses, the road leads to the village of Gastouri, where the famous Achillion is built – the Palace of Empress Sissi of Austria – with its wonderful sculptures, paintings and gardens of unique beauty. Achilleion is one of Corfus biggest sightseeings and always worth the visit.

The location of Corfu in the northen Ionian Sea and the typical moisty-warm climate contribute to the popularity and uniqueness of the island. Due to its location, clear days and sunshine are almost guaranteed during the summer months.
