If you have an idea for an Erasmus internship at our hotel that is not listed above, don’t worry! The team at Bella Vista is always open to new ideas. Please inquire at: As for all other applications:

The summer internship program at Bella Vista Hotel provides students with practical, hands-on experience and exposure to the workings of a small enterprise in the hotel industry.Through this work practice, students have the chance to gain first-hand experience in hospitality, management, tourism and entrepreneurship. Summer internships in Greece don’t get more hands-on than this.

Throughout your Erasmus internship, students will meet other international interns and make new friends and connections. The emphasis of the placement is on hotel management and entrepreneurship, and to provide knowledge to students in a relaxed environment.

In addition to the practical training, students have the opportunity to live next to the beach in Benitses, Corfu, and take advantage of all the beauty the island has to offer. Interns often rent a car to see more of the beautiful island on their days off. This is especially encouraged to those on a social media marketing internship so you can create juicy content for our various channels!
