Search and book Lesbian and Gay friendly hotels Corfu, Greece.

Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights in Greece have evolved significantly over the last years, establishing it as one of the most liberal countries in Southeast EuropeDiscrimination is not as common anymore, although LGBT people in Greece may still face social challenges not experienced by non-LGBT residents. Despite this, Greek public opinion on homosexuality is generally regarded as culturally liberal,with same-sex unions being legally recognised since 2015.

Greece is one of Europe’s most popular LGBT tourist destinations, particularly its largest cities Athens and Thessaloniki as well as several of its islands. The gay scene of Mykonos is well-known, with many establishments catering for the LGBT community.Lesbos also is famous internationally for its lesbian scene in Eressos.

There is also a large gay scene in Thessaloniki with gay/lesbian bars/clubs and several friendly mixed venues, and several LGBT organisations. In June 2012, the city got its own annual pride event (Thessaloniki Pride).

Corfu has a long history of being a  gay friendly resort and in downtown we can find a few gay friendly bars as well as SILK is the most famous gay place in Corfu, Greece.

Corfu, an island off Greece’s northwest coast in the Ionian Sea, is defined by rugged mountains and a resort-studded shoreline. Its cultural heritage reflects years spent under Venetian, French and British rule before it was united with Greece in 1864. Corfu Town, flanked by 2 imposing Venetian fortresses, features winding medieval lanes, a French-style arcade and the grand Palace of St. Michael and St. George.

Natural stone with aged wood blends smoothly with the Corfiot architecture, recalling memories of tradition. For all of our spacious rooms and suites, attention to detail is a trademark.

Sharing the same architectural philosophy, but with a different decorative concept, each room constitutes an art comfortable space that tells its own story. Framed by the unique light of the Ionian, each space is representing the island lifestyle.

Angelo Del Arte Estate is privileged to be located a few steps away from the city attractions and landmarks in the heart of Corfu Island at Kanalia Village – Corfu Town suburbs. Overlooking the infinity green of the Ionian nature, our contemporary and elegant 25 apartments & suites offer a scenic setting that truly encapsulates the essence of a Greek summer. All rooms have a fully equipped kitchen, dining, separate bedroom, living room, high-speed internet, Smart TV, Satellite channels and Netflix, furnished balcony or terrace, towels and premium linen, individual controlled air-conditioning.

High gastronomy dishes in Ambrosia a’ la carte restaurant of pure local products from our Family farms and organic drinks in the pool bar complete the holiday Experience. Our people, our hospitality culture, the mixture of colors and materials, will make your stay enjoyable and unforgettable.

This is small apart hotel with I think 20 rooms in total. There is a choice of one bedroom studio apartments or one bedroom apartments. Spotlessly clean, staff all very attentive and wearing masks, and sadly for them not many guests. There are two glorious outside pools and an outside bar. Beautifully laid out with plenty of seating. Water lovely and clear and warm but refreshing. I paid the extra €7 and upgraded to a one bedroom suite. Amazing!!!

Large balcony overlooking the pool (room 107 would be an excellent choice if you can choose) and a full kitchen with hob, microwave and fridge freezer. A good sized dining area and lounge area in a open plan setting. Good variety of English channels on the TV. Fair sized bedroom, comfortable bed and loads of wardrobe space. Aircon throughout which worked well. The bathroom has a walk in shower with rain head and a second shower head on a rail – it even had a washing machine!

Usual toiletries and large bottle of cold water in the fridge. There are plenty of options for evening meals and most local restaurants offer delivery. And all this for just €77 per night – simply outstanding. Special mention must be made of Alexandra who showed us to our room and made us feel so welcome. A great ambassador for the hotel and nothing was too much trouble.

Highly, highly recommend! Wish we could have stayed longer. We will be back.

The apartments are modern, very clean, spacious and well equipped. We had a lovely balcony with fantastic views. The bed was very comfortable and the rooms are well air conditioned. There is a powerful shower, washing machine, fully equipped kitchen which helped made our stay even more comfortable.

There are 2 lovely pools and all areas are well maintained. Breakfast was very good and drinks were served at the stylish pool bar. There are plenty of areas to sunbathe (there is a beautiful area behind the bar which is secluded).

The apartments are in a quiet residential area, under 10 mins from Corfu Town centre(€10 in a taxi). There is a great place for coffees, pastries and hot food called Nostos a 3 minute walk away. The walk into town took us 45 minutes and is doable.

There is a fantastic cocktail bar called Azur with stunning views and serves excellent cocktails/food. Corfu Town in itself has a great deal to offer for days out as there is so much rich history.

Thank you to you all for a first class experience and a wonderful stay. We would love to come back.

Good quiet location and with a swimming pool. You can walk into Corfu Town in about 20-25 minutes. But also can catch the bus easily from a nearby stop. Several times I walked in and took a taxi or bus back.

The bar and restaurant are well-run and quite low-key. You can have drinks by the pool and lunch in the outside bar. I ate dinner twice in the hotel (high standard) but mostly went into Corfu Town. There are some local restaurants as well but Corfu Town offers better choice. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, you view and choose all the breakfast items and then breakfast is brought to you at the table. Again, well run and with no drama.

The staff are friendly and welcoming and easy to get along with. Just a really enjoyable little place.

I stayed in an ‘exclusive double room’ on the second floor. Clean and spacious with a balcony. Bathroom was a bit small but had everything necessary.

Room was smallish but with a generous sized balcony. Very clean and tidy, with good aircon and a ceiling fan last used in a 747 Jumbo! Particularly thanks to the the restaurant staff – Ellene & Ellene who couldn’t be more pleasant and helpful. Nice to be greeted with their beautiful smiles every day. Vasilius is probably the best barman in Greece who was always very welcoming and with a wicked sense of humour.

Lovely hotel. Calm and peaceful. No fighting for sunbeds. Service always with a smile, nothing too much trouble. Bedroom overlooking pool wonderfully clean and fresh. Balcony lovely to sit on mornings and night times. Decor all up to the minute especially the lighting going on as you approached, great. Breakfast first class! Everything you good possibly want and more.

Bar and pool service throughout the day excellent and fresh. Dinner, beautifully served and of a high standard. Loved exploring Corfu from here on local buses and taxis back at the end of an evening.

Local restaurants down the hill 5 minutes also. Fish restaurants and wonderful Greek food. We are addicted to Greek salad. Would definitely recommend this lovely calm and beautifully run hotel.
