Location

Situated in the North East of the island down a small road between the bays of Orkos and Lakkos, with incredible views towards Corfu and the Greek mainland
Orkos and Lakkos beaches are a steep 10/12 minute walk downhill through the olive groves. We suggest suitable footwear (there is an easier route that takes 20-30 minutes). The footpath to Lakkos beach is smoother whilst the footpath to Orkos beach starts a little further away from the house
Lakka is a 20- 25 minute walk or 5 minutes by car
Gaios is 15 minutes by car

Transport

Fly to Corfu from London and most regional airports

We arrange all transfers from Corfu airport to the island either by sea taxi, or ferry (journey time approx. 1hr)

A 4×4 hire car is required at this house as the track is rough in places

Local Information

The crystal clear water of the Ionian Islands has to be witnessed first hand. It is said that the seas is so blue that it reflects on the underside of the seagulls as they fly across the water! It is possible to charter a yacht or motor boat to lunch on Anti Paxos (2km) or just to explore the hidden beauty in every bay, drop anchor and swim through the mysterious caves that dot the coastline.

Orkos Vista is between the two villages of Lakka and Loggos – nestling in the hills between the beaches of Orkos and Lakkos. From here you can explore many things on foot, there are more beaches within walking distance, such as Monodendri beach – home to Ben’s Bar! It is also possible to walk down into Lakka in the evenings (quite a long, steep walk home though!).

The local restaurants are of a high standard serving both traditional Greek food and the most delicious Italian cuisine. Nearby Loggos has a great choice of tavernas and some lovely gift shops as well as a good bakery and some small supermarkets.

White pebble bays on the east coast & majestic white cliffs on the west give families a range of things to explore. For the “intrepid” there are walks through flower-filled olive groves, gentle fishing, snorkelling and diving.

Our View

A wonderful house decorated in Scandinavian style in one of our favourite spots on the island. Looking out over the Ionian sea and surrounded by cypress and olive trees the house feels hugely private and peaceful. Within the terraced gardens, the outdoor kitchen and BBQ is the perfect spot for gathering with friends. Inside, the open plan kitchen and sitting room open out onto a balcony, with fabulous views- particularly magical at sunrise. Each of the bedrooms has a sea view and is dotted with original touches. The bathrooms are simple and fresh and reflect the contemporary style of the rest of the house.
