The charming Greek destination that’s 20C in November

Travelling during an off-peak season is ideal for saving money and avoiding bustling crowds while enjoying some winter sun.

Averaging a flight time of around three hours from London, heading to Corfu could be a great holiday destination.

This November, Skyscanner is showing flights there and back for as little as £54.

While TUI says the brave-hearted can dip for a swim in the ocean at this time of year in Corfu, there are plenty of other attractions to keep you enthralled.

The Old Town of Corfu is a UNESCO World Heritage Centre that can trace its roots back to the 8th century, BC.

There’s even more to see as walking trails lead to quaint villages with mountain churches.

The most imposing church is the city’s Cathedral, the Church of St Spyridon – the island’s patron Saint.

While in Corfu, don’t forget to visit the most photographed spot of the island.

Visit Greece said: “Kanoni (meaning canon) offers from its circular terrace an amazing view across the island of Pontikonissi.

“According to the legend, this rocky islet was a Phaeacian ship that was turned into stone.”

Up until November 30, the Corfu International Festive is running under the artistic direction of Dionysis Grammenos.

There are musical talents to hear, captivating photography to witness, and theatrical acts to watch.

Do note that while the winter sun is fairly warm in Corfu at this time of year, holidaymakers are recommended to bring along a light jacket for the evenings.
