Dassia – Weather & Climate
The sun in most areas of Greece during summer is very good and on Corfu in particular you can expect some great weather. The best time to enjoy Dassia holidays is during summer’s hottest months July and August. During those months the average temperature will be around 30°C and you can enjoy it for an average of 12 hours a day too. Over summer you can expect there to be little or no rain during your stay.
Winter is of course not as warm as summer yet things aren’t quite Baltic and many tourists may look at Dassia as a place to visit to avoid the colder weather back home. During the day over winter the average temperature will rarely drop below 10°C which means you’re still able to enjoy some sun. Most of the year’s rain comes in November, but it never lasts too long and it clears up fairly quickly. The warm winters in Dassia make it a place to enjoy if you are looking for a late, or early, getaway.
