Forty years ago ‘Corfu Villas’, now CV Travel, was a twinkle in the eye of a husband and wife team who fell in love with the beautiful north east coast of Corfu with its traditional Greek harbours, historic villages, crystal clear waters, and beachside tavernas. Discovering and sharing villa `finds’ with friends soon grew into a small and highly personal business offering exceptional holiday houses in unrivalled settings. Villas were photographed and presented in hand-finished brochures, sent out with a note asking for them to be returned! These days, the Greek Islands remain our flagship destination, most notably Corfu, but a selection of our villas now appear in a beautifully designed brochure or on our informative and friendly website.
