Villa Thea is located in charming little fishing village, Agios Stefanos with a wonderful view of the Ionian Sea, surrounded by olive and cypress trees
San Stefano is 5 minutes away by car. There is a mooring, great tavernas, bars and small supermarkets
Avlaki beach is 5 minutes away by car, and offers watersports, two wonderful tavernas and horse-riding
Kerasia is 10 minutes away by car, the other side of San Stefano. There is a lovely taverna here with its own jetty
Kassiopi is 10 minutes away by car, and boasts bars, restaurants and good night life- popular with teenagers
Kalami, a 15 minutes away by car, has water sports, and is near Agni or Kouloura- both great for tavernas
Fly to Corfu from all London and most regional airports.
Corfu town is a 40 minutes by car or 20 minutes by sea taxi.
A hire car is recommended.
Corfu has to be seen to be believed – clear-water cloves, drifts of spring flowers and scents of herbs, wild orchids, tortoises, Venetian belfries, winding village streets, donkeys laden with kindling, imposing country manor houses in lush olive groves, tiny chapels with a solitary candle burning inside – all this is here. Alongside are cosmopolitan classical concerts, opera and theatre, chic and sophisticated shops, sports facilities of every kind, superb swimming, and endless wining and dining destinations from the simplest to fairly expensive.
Here’s our must do list:
Play golf at one of Europe’s finest golf courses
Horse ride from Avlaki beach
Learn the basics of dinghy sailing and water skiing
Soar above the sea on a parachute or dive below its surface on a scuba diving expedition
Dive & snorkel from Kassiopi
Tour the north east coast in a motor boat
Enjoy walking and wild flowers in early and late season
Enjoy a drink on the ’Liston’ in cosmopolitan Corfu Town and shop in its narrow streets
Visit the Byzantine castle of Angelokastro for a spot of history and drama – imaginative children love it
Visit Corfu Town’s various museums and palaces
Visit the deserted village of Old Perithia high up in the mountains
Take a tour of neighbouring Albania
There is no denying that anyone seeking an escape from a busy life will be content to relax by the pool or on the beach without ever picking up the car keys or opening a map, but it would be a pity to leave Corfu without exploring at least one of its many diversions.
We saw this house on a beautiful October morning with the sun rising directly in front of the house. The views across to Albania are staggering, anyone who knows and loves the view from San Stefano will love this house!
It is so well set up with large bedrooms and slick, clean-lined bathrooms, a large sitting room, wonderful shaded seating outside and a great pool.
The beds are incredibly comfortable with crisp white sheets and fluffy towels.
The cook will come in and do as much or as little cooking as you would like, you don’t have to lift a finger as she will do all the food shopping too.
This house is just above Villa Barbara and the two can be taken together, extending the group size to 18. What a great place to spend a week or two with family or friends.
