About us

Geoffrey Kent founded A&K in Africa 1962 with little more than a refrigerated ex-Army truck and the best tents money could buy. Then, the company went by the motto ‘off-the-beaten-track safaris’. A lot has changed in the intervening years, but we still want to take you down the road less travelled. We devise unique, meticulously planned journeys into hard-to-reach wildernesses and authentic cultures. We win awards not only for our bespoke luxury holidays and unparalleled escorted tours, but also our philanthropic efforts to protect and preserve the places we travel to… because sometimes it’s the how as well as the where.

A&K launches luxury collection of villas in Corfu

Luxury travel company Abercrombie & Kent Villas has expanded its range of villas into Corfu. The collection has been carefully selected to provide guests with the best properties on the island with the greatest level of comfort, facilities and service possible.

While the island of Corfu is no stranger to Brits, A&K have entered the market with the luxury traveller in mind and are working with the best properties available. Corfu boasts fantastic local cuisine to sample, plenty of Venetian architecture with interesting ancient ruins, towers and fortresses to visit, and dramatic landscapes and villages that are well worth exploring. The island has mountains, over 200km of coastline, sunshine, beaches, ouzo and souvlaki. Corfu is known as Greece’s emerald island because of the 2 million olive trees on the island, giving it a lush landscape. Properties are designed to the highest specifications and with all modern amenities, so that any break here provides more than a simple home from home. 

The full selection of villas can be viewed here. A selection of our favourites include
