The villa is 30 minutes drive from the airport.
Although a hire car is useful it is not a necessity as this house is right on the water and so many of Corfu’s tavernas are accessible by boat.
Corfu, famed for its glorious greenery and luscious interior, has become an immensely popular and luxurious destination. Often attracting the A list, this divine island offers stunning beaches, great night life, delectable restaurants and boat hopping between small and quaint tavernas meaning that even the most restless of pleasure seeker will be happy!
The north east coast is full of outstanding bays and white pebbled coves, higher up, away from the coast the interior is home to birds of prey, rare flora and rural simplicity. Water sports a-plenty can be found on many of the local beaches.
Nearby St Stephano is a simple and pretty harbour with seafront tavernas and a delightful beach.
For the teenagers the night life in Kassiopi is a short drive up the coast.
This is a fine place to spend a family holiday or with a close group of friends, potter into town for delicious local delicacies, take a small boat around the cove to a tiny taverna for a long, lazy lunch of fresh fish and come home to a delicious dinner on the terrace under the stars.
One of the greatest pleasures of this gorgeous, wooded stretch of coast is that the sea-fronted properties are so accessible by boat. You can spend your mornings stopping off to swim at one or other pretty coves, admiring the views of mainland Albania before seeking out a new taverna for lunch. All the tavernas have their own wooden jetties and their owners will wave you in, catch your rope and tie up your boat before handing you their menu.
Lunch in the next bay: Agni at one of the 3 best tavernas on the island.
Corfu town has a wonderful selection of shops and restaurants. It is possible to take a guided walk through the old town, stopping on the way for sustenance in any one of the many bars filled with beautiful people.
The island’s capital is a rambling and delightful mix of cultures, traditions and architecture. There is a French built promenade, cricket on the Esplanade and a venetian elegance that encompasses the town.
The bay of Kalami next door to Kouloura nestles below the hills of North East Corfu and is famous for both its beautiful beach, and Lawrence Durrell’s ’White House’.
What a privilege to be allowed access to this beautiful property, which is arguably one of the most important landmark properties in Greece. It is a 15th century Venetian fort. Off the main road is a smaller one which leads down, down to the sea. at the end of the road is a small taverna and a set of gates.
We have visited many times – driving through the gates one is struck by the majesty of this place. As if that wasn’t enough we delighted at the small marina at the bottom of the garden through a little gate.
So, this whole bay boasts literally the house, the marina and a little taverna. Shared with a smattering of boats in the summer.
The beautiful garden of almost 3 acres provides wonderful shade and walking. The horizon-edge swimming pool uses salt water taken from the sea below and enjoys stunning 180 degree views over the channel, from the mountain peaks of Albania in the north to Corfu Town, and Paxos on a very clear day, in the south.
The small, sheltered bay of Kouloura, set between the bigger bays of Kalami and Kerasia, has long been celebrated by writers, artists and photographers and it is in this beautiful location that Kouloura House nestles.
You really will feel like the king of the castle here, you will be sitting pretty in the privacy of one of Corfu’s prettiest villages and where everyone else would like to be. Moor your boat just seconds from the front door and chug out every day for lunch just around the bay. Where to sit and what to drink will be the biggest decisions you’ll need to make on this holiday.
