The Ionian Islands.
THE IONIAN ISLANDS lie just off the west coast of Greece, in the Ionian Sea. They're believed to be the tips of a submerged mountain chain that runs from the Adriatic to the Peloponnese.
There are seven main islands (the Greek name for the group is Eptanissa, 'the seven islands'). Of these, six - Corfu, Paxos, Ithaca, Lefkada, Kefalonia and Zakynthos - are what most people think of the Ionians. (The seventh, Kythira, is to the south of the Peloponnese, so far apart from the others that it doesn't feel part of the same group.)
All Islands are lush, mountainous, green (they get lots of rain in winter) and very picturesque. They look less typically Greek than other islands - in fact they feel more Italian, with their slender trees and old Venetian buildings in shades of pink and ochre.
Abundant on the islands are deep green pine forests, olive & citrus groves, vineyards and the displays of wildflowers - anemones, irises, daisies, orchids - are beautiful in spring, especially in Corfu.
