Welcome to Alternative Corfu – Art and Culture holidays

Artistic creativity comes effortlessly on a Greek island like Corfu. Lying in the Ionian Sea, where the legendary Greek light and magnificent blue sky join the crystal-clear, green and turquoise sea. The landscape is awash with the silhouettes of olive and cypress trees, while every imaginable flower and plant fills the air with the fragrances of the Mediterranean. The old town of Corfu with its two Venetian fortresses, the narrow twisting alleyways (kandounia) and its cosmopolitan atmosphere have remained unchanged through time. Around the city, the ancient Greek ruins still stand as proud witnesses of our ancient heritage.

painting The island is dotted with picturesque villages where locals continue to maintain age-old traditions. Our team is mainly composed of Corfiots, true descendants of the Phaeacians, renowned for their hospitality since the time of Homer. Corfu old town a UNESCO world heritage site, is a journey into history. Developed through the centuries by the osmosis of features of the two worlds of the Mediterranean, the East and the West

The mosaic of cultures that passed through Corfu along with the unique beauty of the island has been a source of inspiration for artists throughout the centuries. Our philosophy is that by coming into contact and exploring one’s inner creativity, while also discovering the benefits of immersion in art, nature and culture, one’s personal life can only be enriched and improved.

Our Holidays

  • We offer painting and culture holidays beyond the ordinary, through which you can enter the heart and soul of this island
  • Our packages include practical art workshops, presentations on local culture, art, and of course myth and legend. We also offer holidays for those that prefer just to enjoy the local life, the culture and the natural beauty of the Island, without engaging in any artistic activities.
  • Our workshops and presentations are led by local artists and experts with a passion for their topics and an intimate knowledge of Corfu – since we believe that nobody can guide you better than a local.
  • Our groups are small (6-12 people) who all share a common interest and who will have the opportunity to experience the real Corfu.
  • Our unique venues and accommodation have been hand-picked for their authenticity and their location far off the beaten track, where you can immerse yourself in Corfu’s natural beauty and allow inspiration and creativity to flourish.

All this takes place within the superb and magical scenery of Corfu island, in the company of people who all share common interests, friendly tutors and hospitable locals.

We hope that as genuine descendants of the Phaeacians we can help you to discover your own Ithaca!!!
