Modern Ideal for Kids Walk to Village

A wellness and spa resort, perfect for those in need of mindfulness and rejuvenation. The luxurious, sprawling estate is especially designed to create a peaceful haven to escape to. There are seven bedrooms, a multitude of living rooms, two pool areas and plenty of classes to explore. Groups of families or friends can rent as many or as few bedrooms as they wish. The resort is joined together with classy marble steps and natural stone roads.

The Calliope Resort is situated in the postcard-perfect grounds of Achilleon Palace, the summer palace of Empress Sisi of Austria. Wrapped in acres of greenery and parkland, it's perfect for those who love being among the forest and the sparkling sea - at the same time! Guests at this villa enjoy access to an exclusive beach, that you arrive at by slick glass elevator.

One of the most exciting parts of staying here is access to the range of health, fitness and mindfulness classes. Whether yoga is your thing, early morning tai chi gets you going, or pilates helps you to reset, there's something for everyone at this resort.

Get back to nature in the dazzling aquamarine curves of the pools, floating peacefully. Next to each pool, there are shaded pergolas with cushioned wicker chairs and superb views. Order a smoothie and unwind after a cooling swim. Guests can sunbathe in the park for extra space and privacy. The tranquil villa rests in its own grove with cypress, olive and oak trees, providing plenty of fresh air and privacy.

There is a myriad of living and dining space, with plush white sofas, floor to ceiling windows, glossy floors and chic unfinished wood furniture. Gather around the rustic dining table for your evening feast or enjoy an evening on the balconies and rustle up a feast on the barbecue.

Enjoy a complimentary healthy breakfast every morning, complete with detox corner for those following a specific nutritional programme. Dinner menus are also available, drawing inspiration from local Corfiot cuisine and Mediterranean dishes. The wine cellar showcases the best in local Greek wine.

Bedrooms are fresh, delightful havens to retreat to at the end of each day. Decorated in calming, neutral tones of taupe, dove grey and white, the beds are dressed in crisp linen. Minimal yet beautiful, the bedrooms are sun-soaked and designed for an excellent sleep.

Movie buffs will adore the charming cinema room, where films can be shown daily. For a perfect film session, open up the sliding windows and enjoy the movie with a summer breeze. Alternatively, curl up on the plush sofas where there are home cinema systems in two living rooms, and projector screens showcase blockbusters.

Perfectly placed in sublime, mountainous Gastouri, also known as Acheillio, after the famous summer palace of Empress Sisi of Austria. Located just 500m from the village entrance, the palace draws intrigue due to its historical and cultural significance. Built in 1898 by an Italian architect with inspiration from Greek mythology, iconic sculptures of Zeus, Hera and Achilles himself were created by a German sculptor for the beloved Empress of Austria. The palace is surrounded by dazzling gardens and has incredible views of the Ionian Sea.

Corfu is the second largest of the Ionian islands and has plenty of Venetian influence in the architecture, as well as Byzantine influences. The name means 'a pair of peaks' as the island has two hills topped with fortresses that defended the island from the Ottoman Empire. The largest of the hills has a lighthouse with spectacular views over the sea.
The Old Town is made up of narrow, winding lanes, filled with Venetian and Neoclassical architecture, painted in sunny ochre and sienna. Just off Spianada Square, where locals congregate, is the Old Fortress on the site of an acropolis atop a rocky peninsula. Visitors can walk up to the highest point for breathtaking views, passing a small chapel and museum along the way.

Liston Arcade, full of famous cafes and a promenade inspired by the Rue de Rivoli in Paris is also nearby - it is so atmospheric with its graceful archways. It's a perfect spot for people-watching with a coffee in hand.

A popular trip from Corfu is to nearby Pontikosini (Mouse Island) where there is a minute Byzantine-era monastery surrounded by pine and cypress trees. According to local folklore, this is the spot of Ulysses' ship after it was turned to stone by the wrath of Poseidon. The island gets its name as it's said to be the outline of a mouse when you look at it from above.

A beach day is always a good idea in Corfu - and with so many to choose from, you could try a different beach every day! An amazing beach close to the villa is Agios Gordious beach with its green water and powdery sand. The beach gets its name from the church that is literally on the beachfront. The road that leads up to Agios Gordious is particularly scenic, lined with vineyards and olive trees.

Canal d'Amour is a romantic and wildly popular beach that lies on the northwest side of the island. This beach has soft sand and turquoise water, but the unique element is the rectangular rock with a gap that you can swim through on a calm day. It's said that couples who swim through together will get married within the year.

The Island/Getting There

One of the largest and greenest of the Ionian Islands, Corfu is far more than its trademark blue-hued seas and sandy coastline.
