Prince Charles’ love affair with Greece is well documented and this year is no exception with news that he and his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall have arrived in the country for their summer holidays.

Prince Charles and wife Camilla reportedly arrived Wednesday on the island of Corfu docking in the small harbour of Kerasia as guests at Rothschild Villa.

The villa, with its unique architecture has dominated the island for more than 40 years, within a vast estate in Kerasia that is filled with ancient pines, waterfalls and rich vegetation.

Security measures since the royal couple's arrival are now extremely tight, with both security personnel and trained dogs guarding the grounds. The villa has often hosted both royals and celebrities, while it was a favourite summer retreat for Princess Diana.

Kerasia is 40 km northeast of Corfu town and is considered one of the most beautiful locations on the island, nestling around an impressive beach with white pebbles, lush vegetation and clear blue waters. There is only one traditional taverna in the area, which is a remote and idyllic retreat for all.
