Kanoni holidays are a great way to combine a relaxing break with a hint of fascinating Greek history and culture. Located on the Kanoni Peninsular, just along the coast from Corfu Town, Kanoni has some of the most beautiful scenery on the island. The amazing views of Pontikonisi (Mouse Island) and Vlacherna are some of the most photographed scenes in Greece.
Vlacherna is accessible by a short causeway and is home to the Convent of Vlacherna, built in the 17th century and a solitary cypress tree; from here you can take a boat trip to Mouse Island, formed, so the story goes, by the ship of Phaiakes being petrified by Poseidon, god of the sea. Mouse Island houses the byzantine chapel of Pandokrator. Holidays in Kanoni must include a visit to the oldest church on Corfu the Paleopolis Basilica, found opposite the gates of Mon Repos Park, the old residence of the High Lord Commissioner.
