Benitses Corfu in Greece
One of the original holiday resorts of Corfu in Greece is Benitses, a very old village, proud of its traditions.
Perhaps one of the most famous seaside villages in th country due to the strange and strong attraction exerted to almost every visitor that is difficult to describe in words.
May be is the lush vegetation on the surrounding mountains, the notorious nightlife of the recent past, the beautiful history of the place, or the famous first guests and residents of the 50s..no one can say.
The original part lies in a beautiful location in the middle of a green valley that sweeps down to the sea and has kept its natural beauty intact despite the intense activity and large touristic development since mass tourism started in the 1960s.
It is an idyllic place, with a great past and future, that every visitor to Corfu will want to discover, and share with their friends..
Also a perfect marriage of mountain and sea offering excellent facilities for all visitors, as it has hotels of every category, apartments, villas and rooms.
Benitses restaurants and tavernas cater for every taste from traditional Greek cuisine, to pizzas, pasta, and even Chinese food.
Its low key but pleasant nightlife is centred round the many bars, and the new yacht harbour (Marina) has berths for hundreds of private boats, as well as the local pleasure craft..
The beaches are very clean, with crystal clear water and have been awarded the EU blue flag, they are a mix of shingle and sand, sunbeds can be rented, and water sports enjoyed here, and these beaches have been considerably enlarged in recent years, and are well maintained for the visitors' enjoyment..
Residents of Benitses are hospitable, friendly and familiar with most foreign cultures.
They enjoy helping you to enjoy your holiday to the full!
