After a glorious holiday at the Club Mediterranee's Village on the island of Corfu, I have returned with the feeling that there's still hope for the world. There I found nearly twelve hundred people of all nationalities who had succeeded in throwing off their worldly cares, and were happily living the simple 'life together under the sun. The formula is deceptively simple—good food, good wine (ad lib) and wonderful Sporting facilities—water ski-jog, sailing and underwater fishing all on the house. But there's more to it than that: The Belgian founder, Gerrard Blitz, seems to have instilled into both members and staff a spirit of tolerance, good humour and good will that would be hard to find elsewhere, Barriers of class, creed and race disappear when the dress of the day is swimsuits.
To my mind this is the perfect holiday for anyone young at heart who wants to really get away from it all. Mind you, if you are looking for luxury or afraid to clean your teeth in public. then it's not for you.
