The north east coast of Corfu 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.
Corfu 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, in Greek Agni means unspoiled which describes this bay perfectly! It may be small with only three tavernas, some say the best tavernas on the island, and a few other buildings but it’s a beautiful place to catch some sun and have a dip in the clear waters. 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 seafront tavernas and bars just a short boat ride away. Or head to Avlaki beach for dinghy sailing, paddle boarding and snorkeling. For teenagers, the night life in Kassiopi is a short drive up the coast.
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. 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 and restaurants. The island’s capital is a rambling and delightful mix of cultures, traditions and architecture – with a French built promenade, cricket on the Esplanade and a Venetian elegance that encompasses the town.
This house is seriously impressive, best seen from the water where it stands like a castle on the rocks with winding stone pathways down to the sea. We can’t imagine a better spot to relax than the terraces the owner has built into the rock face. From here take in the spectacular views towards Corfu Town with a bottle of chilled rosé and a good book. There is a little bathing ladder to slip into the sea and cool off when the sun gets too much at midday.
The main house is centred around an open plan living area with huge sliding glass doors onto the pool area (all on the same level) on one side and a shaded outdoor seating area on the other. The kitchen/dining area has all the highest spec appliances that you would expect in a house of this quality and a huge glass topped dining table. Three of the bedrooms are set off the main living area, all decorated in calming neutral colours with highest quality bed linen.
The formal terraced garden is completely private and feels like an oasis – the high stone walls planted with Mimosa trees and bougainvillea, bubbling water features and unusually for Greece a sumptuously soft grass lawn all create a peaceful, cool space in which to relax. Breakfast is served in the shaded bar area on the terrace and there is an outdoor dining terrace under a wisteria-clad pergola with Swedish crystal chandelier.
