We’ve got nothing on for the next month and we’ve had a lot on for the past couple of months, as you might have heard from a couple of newspapers, it’s been high finance. But it seems to be going OK now, so I’m just taking a break to get away from it all.Paul McCartney – Interview for BBC Radio Merseyside, May 15, 1969
From May 15 to June 17, 1969, Paul McCartney, his wife Linda, and her daughter Heather spent a month of holidays, first travelling to Provence (in the south of France) then to the Greek island of Corfu, staying in the village of Benitses.
While in Corfu, Paul completed the song “Every Night“, an early version of which he had performed in January 1969 during the “Get Back” sessions. It would be released on his debut solo album, “McCartney“, released in April 1970.
Some of the photos taken by Linda during those holidays appeared on the inner sleeve of the “McCartney” album.
Paul and Linda McCartney, with little six-year-old Heather, returned from their holiday at Corfu in the Greek islands on Tuesday, June 17, the day before Paul’s birthday.
During their vacation, they rented a £125-a-week villa, a mini car to drive around the island and a luxury speedboat for pleasure trips around the bays.
Observers report from Greece that Paul seemed thoroughly at home in his dual role of husband and father, while Linda spent many of her mornings preparing fairly authentic Greek-style lunch dishes for the family between the sunbathing sessions.From the Beatles Monthly Book, N°72, July 1969

"With greatly expanded text, this is the most revealing and frank personal 30-year chronicle of the group ever written. Insider Barry Miles covers the Beatles story from childhood to the break-up of the group."
We owe a lot to Barry Miles for the creation of those pages, but you really have to buy this book to get all the details - a day to day chronology of what happened to the four Beatles during the Beatles years!
If we like to think, in all modesty, that the Paul McCartney Project is the best online ressource for everything Paul McCartney, The Beatles Bible is for sure the definitive online site focused on the Beatles. There are obviously some overlap in terms of content between the two sites, but also some major differences in terms of approach.
