Let The Summer Begin!!!

Summer has officially started here on Corfu and from the looks of it, so far so good. The weather is great, the sea is crisp and the food is amazing. From the looks of it and from the number of people that have arrived so far, Summer 2010 looks to be better than Summer 2009! Thank GodHappy

Obviously, Corfubyu is here to help you with anything you might like on your holiday this summer. From
airport transfer, to taxi hire - let our wheels get you going! Looking for accommodation or a great place to eat while on Corfu or in Sidari - we got tons of places!

We also have local
car hire companies and scooter and quad hire here in Sidari, so don’t be shy and shoot us over an email for some more info. Now, go out there and have a great holiday.

Going On Holiday - Want WIFI?

Many resort towns around Corfu and Greece in general, have installed free wifi for all to use during the summer season.
In the resort town of Sidari, the antenna has already been installed and with fingers crossed, we'll have signal by the start of the summer season.

For those living in Sidari or those that have been here before, the antenna has been placed on the roof of the mayor’s building, right next to the town church. From the rumors I’ve heard, the signal should be good for about 200m in each direction but those are just rumors.

In terms of limitations and security, I’ve heard nothing but one wonders how significant the bandwidth will be during the peak season? Especially, if people are going to use the connection for downloading media, which places a huge strain on the network - we shall see.

Spring Is In the Air On Corfu

Spring is in full bloom here on Corfu, meaning summer is just around the corner. The air is warming but still crisp in the morning and early evening. The sun is climbing higher and higher into the sky and businesses start opening up from their winter hibernation.

Have you planned your summer trip yet? There are some amazing deals out there, especially for
flights to Corfu, so get booking! Our bookings have really started coming in, especially for May. If you’re coming to Corfu this summer or know someone who is and you need accommodation, we’d be more than happy to help.

Also, our friends over at North Corfu Taxi ( have great prices for airport transfers. Go and have a look, I’m sure you’ll find something you’ll like.

Facebook and Twitter

Another addition to CorfuByU - Social Networking. We have added Facebook and Twitter links to CorfuByU, so stop stalling and friend us!!! We plan on using Facebook as a massive address book for all the people that use and visit In turn, those individuals can network and exchange information on Corfu or their experiences. Twitter will be our version on CNN - allowing all our followers to be up to date with all news and special summer deals we offer. Twitter is a great site and we highly recommend people join up - but be’s addictive!!

November Newsletter

As you can see the site is coming along and we have many services up and running. We have put together our first Newsletter for Corfubyu, which we hope to have both as a flash based Newsletter and as a html email version. If you would like to join our mailing list and get the html version sent to you every month, just sign up on our home page or email us and just let us know you’d like to be on our mailing list.

November’s will be the first newsletter and from now on, we will be sending out a monthly version. Our desire is to make it a weekly trend but for now it will remain a monthly periodical. As for info, the newsletter contains detailed information about resort towns around Corfu, local businesses, services, recipes, pictures, editorials and of course we will be adding tons of new content once the Summer starts. We would also like to add stories from the people that have come to Corfu for holiday - Good and Bad. It is a work in progress but from the start - it looks awesome!! The November issue can be found here and please send us an email to sign up - we’ll have it in your inbox every month.
