Local Information

Corfu is a glorious heaven of relaxation under the sun and floating in the clear blue Ionian sea, punctuated by delicious lunches on the beach. It is best appreciated from the sea – take a boat to find the more secluded coves and caves near the house that you can only reach by boat – the highlight of lunch at a beach side taverna must be seeking out a new one every day, pulling up in your little boat to one of the many jetties where the owner (or a waiter) will wave you in, catch your rope and tie up your boat before handing you their menu and leading you to a table.

Enjoy the beautiful beaches or snorkeling in one of the many bays before a sun downer at one of the lovely tavernas nearby. Boat home again and dine on your villa terrace in the silky night air.

Agni is a lovely little bay just 10 minutes walk away. In Greek Agni means unspoiled which describes this bay perfectly! It may be small with only three tavernas and a few other buildings but it’s a beautiful place to catch some sun and have a dip in the clear waters. You are able to hire a boat from Agni and moor it at the jetty below the house. A little further north is Kalami, a pretty bay with a collection of houses, made famous by the Durrell brothers who both wrote books when they stayed at The White House here. Prospero’s Cell being one of the most well-known.

Continuing up the coast you will reach San Stephano, a traditional fishing village with a popular collection of tavernas and bars just a short boat ride away. On Avlaki beach you can enjoy dinghy sailing and paddle boarding.

Krouzeri is a short walk south, with a long pebble beach and surrounded by olive groves, perfect for swimming and an array of water sports. Beyond Krouzeri lies the small secluded Kaminaki beach.

The island has a rich history and plays an important role in Greece’s ancient history. Visit cosmopolitan Corfu town, shop in its narrow streets and enjoy a drink on the ’Liston’.  Alternatively visit its various museums (Archaeological and Byzantine) and palaces.  Visit the Byzantine castle of Angelokastro for a spot of history and drama – imaginative children love it.

The tavernas are of a great standard, lovely to sit by the sea at night in one of the many we are happy to recommend.

Our View

The views from this amazing setting are utterly breathtaking, so much so that we were stopped in our tracks. So near the sea and in a great part of the island. It couldn’t get much better. And that was all before we even opened the door. So much thought has evidently gone into each and every room and it really shows.

There are three areas for accommodation, making this the perfect location for more than one family, ideal if you want to get away from a big group but perfect for coming together during the day. The largest is the upper house just above the swimming pool.

Each house boasts cool, subdued colours on the walls and furnishings. Large, comfortable beds, fluffy towels and stunning finishes. The outside space is generous, lots of places to sit in both the sun and the shade. The stunning swimming pool has shallow steps, perfect for little people to splash in, but also a great length for a morning swim!

Under the terrace of the main house, with its own access is a large studio. This houses an open plan bedroom cum sitting room with a small kitchen area. This is the perfect place to put teenagers and would be ideal as an overflow.

Below the house is a pathway which runs down through the garden to the coastal footpath leading to any one of the lovely seaside villages. A short walk will take you to the beach at Agni in one direction, or Krouzeri in the other. Alternatively follow the path for a couple of minutes to a private jetty and swimming platform where you can moor a boat during your stay.
