Villas in Corfu

Corfu’s spectacular north eastern coastline is a haven of white pebbly coves, glittering turquoise waters and stunning views. Locally known as Kerkyra, the island is a medley of cosmopolitan and time-honoured Greece, from the livelier resorts of Kassiopi and Ipsos, to outlying villages steeped in Greek tradition. While time seems to have forgotten them, you will not. The majority of our villas are dotted along the peaceful mountainside, surrounded by olive groves, orange and lemon trees and famously friendly natives.

Corfu - A picture postcard setting

Many of our Corfu villas scatter the wonderful northern eastern coast, gazing out towards the near-distant shores of Albania. It’s an island with the rare quality of appealing to all - a cosmopolitan beauty retaining its traditional name Kerkyra. It has an air of charm and mystery born of its long and ancient history.

  • Corfu Activities

    Soak up the island’s magnificent sunsets with a walk across the headlands and coastal paths. The views are particularly magical – offering uninterrupted seascapes and panoramic scenes of untamed hillsides and white sandy bays.

    Explore the shoreline scenery by small boat and go cove-hopping to one of many peaceful and very pretty bays. You can even trek on horseback around the wild and rugged countryside with an experienced instructor. Bird watching, cycling, windsurfing and waterskiing are also available.

  • Corfu Beaches

    The beaches in Corfu are pebbly and sandy with many sloping gently into the sea. The secluded coves and clear blue waters have made the island a particular favourite with families. Most beaches are equipped with waterside tavernas, beachside shops, with pedalos and sun loungers for hire.

  • Corfu History

    An island immersed in legendary Greek history, Corfu’s ancient sites have survived through the centuries to remain standing today. Corfu Town is a maze of narrow, stone-paved streets dominated by two stunning Venetian castles – the Old and New Fortresses. Other architectural attractions on this Greek Island include well-preserved palaces – one famously home to the Greek royal family.

    Monasteries, chapels and old Roman ruins are dotted around the Corfu countryside, while mosaics, sculptures and frescoes have been carefully retained in their original domains for public viewing.

  • Corfu Food

    Rich in Mediterranean flavours, traditional cuisine on the island consists of local ingredients. In particular, olives, lemons, tomatoes and freshly caught fish feature strongly in most dishes.

    Find a waterfront taverna and dine on the terrace overlooking the sea, as homemade Greek dishes are lovingly prepared and served to your table. Back in the tranquillity of your own private villa, feast on a long, lazy lunch of grilled fish and fluffy fresh bread drizzled with just-pressed, golden olive oil.

  • Corfu Holidays - Points of Interest

    • Explore the narrow streets of old Corfu Town, the dungeons and battlements of the Byzantine and imposing Venetian forts.

    • Take a boat trip from the charming little fishing villages of St Stefanos or Kassiopi.

    • A trip to the two islets of Vlakhérna and Pondikoníssi: The first for its photogenic white convent and the second for its legendary Odysseus connections.

    • Visit Albania, just 2kms offshore by boat, and take this unique opportunity to experience the state’s fascinating history.

    • Dine in idyllic surroundings at the tiny harbour at Kouloura.

Main town of Corfu lovely place to walk round and great choices of restaurants
Roads are terrible to drive on. Not a lot to see on the island in my opinion but we only went for a relaxing holiday anyway so was not bothered.

There were lots more flowers than we had expected. Kassiopi is not very big but had enough shops and tavernas. We wanted somewhere quiet and restful, so it was ideal for us.
The directions to the villa were good, but the route back to the airport was different and very badly signed. The queues at the airport were at least well-organised, but slow and it took us an hour and 3/4 to drop off our cases and get through security, even thogh we had already pre-booked our seats and printed our own boarding cards.

Local bars & restaurants excellent, views magnificent.
Piles of stinking rubbish everywhere. Locals blame the council. Villa companies should not send clients to areas where there could be serious health issues with rubbish and vermin piled up on almost every corner.

Corfu is so beautiful and the area around the villa is relatively unspoiled with no high rise buildings and untouched little bays.
Beautiful clear seas
Easy to travel around in a car to visit other parts of the island.

We chose this villa because of it's location, as we wanted a quiet and secluded holiday away from the hustle and bustle. This certainly fit the bill!
None - the area was beautiful although the sea was cold!

There is no late night bars with loud music, just the sounds of nature, bird song and bees.
Very quiet and private so one could sunbathing and swim as you wished.
No heating for the water when the sun did not heat it enough, so shower cool.
No apparent heating for the villa if required in the cool evenings
Though not a bad point families should be aware that the pool is not fenced in so young children not able to swim should be supervised.
