The village of "Benitses" is located near the centre of the island,
just twelve km. South of Corfu Town .Here, the sea and the
mountains co-exist in harmony like many other things, including
traditional singing and modern music- the white-washed patios full of
flowers and the luxurious hotel reception areas- traditional food and
international cuisine- the graphic chapels and the busy restaurants and
In the last few years, Benitses has been part of the
municipality of Achillion with a special place amongst other villages.
Just 3 km away from Benitses there is the famous Achillion
Museam (Sisi's Palace) and the well-known "Mouse Island of Corfou".
Through the festive functions of the municipality, the local choir, the
community centre and the governing authority have organised festivals
worthy of great admiration. Distinguished amongst these are the
Resurrection Night, Saint-Marina celebration
( 16-17/07), The Baptism(06/01), and the Sardine festival(August).
Beside the crystal clear waters of the beaches, awarded with the EU
Blue Flag, the new harbour is built with modern facilities,
enhancing the village, the municipality and also the whole island.
