Ikos Kerkyra is located on the hillside in Katavolos on the north east coast of Corfu. Katavolos is a charming village with some good local amenities. The villa is close to a secluded beach with others within walking distance. Nissaki, meaning ‘little island’, is nearby. It was once a tiny rocky island which joined the mainland. Its horseshoe-shaped main beach is made up of pretty white pebbles which shelve into the crystal clear blue water. It is a great place for snorkeling and if you are feeling adventurous, you can snorkel around to the neighbouring coves. It is a sleepy hamlet with some friendly tavernas and some gorgeous walking opportunities which spread up to the cypress and pine-sprinkled foothills of Mount Pantokrator. The 220km long Corfu Trail winds around the island and passes through the valley behind Nissaki. You will enjoy fantastic views if you take the steep coastal path towards the rocky coves of Katavolos. You can also hire a boat to explore the coastline. A popular visit is to Agni Bay. St Stephano is a pretty place with a delightful harbour and waterfront tavernas as well as a gorgeous beach.

Corfu Town or Kerkyra as it is otherwise known is just thirty or forty minutes away by car. It is one of the most beautiful, graceful, and elegant towns in Greece. The town’s stunning architecture has many influences including Sicilian, Venetian, French and English. Corfu Town is brimming with elegant mansions, magnificent palaces, beautiful squares, no fewer than thirty-nine churches and majestic fortresses. You should not miss The Liston and the Church of Saint Spiridon. The entire Old Town is declared a UNESCO World Heritage site, a tightly packed warren of winding lanes bursting with lively bars, unique shops, and fine restaurants. You will also see timeless alleys with the day’s washing stretching from balcony to balcony. The architecture is painted in sunny ochre and sienna shades. Just off Spianada Square is the Old Fortress on the site of an acropolis. From here, there are breath taking views. Corfu Town is the birthplace of the late Duke of Edinburgh. He was born at the fabulous Mon Repos Palace. Next to the palace gardens you will find the calm waters of the Mon Repos Beach and to the north, you will find Faliraki Beach. There are also some interesting museums including the Byzantine Museum of Corfu which is housed in a 15th century church. Others are the Museum of Ceramic Art, the D Solomos Museum, and the Asian Art Museum.

Kassiopi, roughly thirty minutes away, is a wonderful tourist resort with a fabulous range of tavernas serving mouth-watering traditional cuisine, bars, cafes and lively nightclubs. With the dramatic Mount Pantokrator overlooking the resort and with a stunning harbour, this once quiet fishing village is beautiful. Kassiopi boasts traditional narrow streets overlooked by the ruins of an ancient Byzantine castle together with breathtaking views out to sea towards the Albanian coast. Visitors enjoy delightful, tranquil walks around the headland.

Between the villa and Corfu Town, you will discover Gouvia and Kontokali. Gouvia is a chic resort with a history. In the 17th century, Gouvia was a Venetian naval base and the original grand arches of the shipyard are still intact. Now though, its smart marina offers sophisticated waterfront credentials with lively bars, trendy restaurants and boutique shops together with plenty of traditional Greek tavernas for meze and other delicious feasts. Gouvia enjoys several beaches, some of which are pebbly. The central beach offers some excellent watersports including jet skis and banana boats. From the beach you can see the pretty Ipanpanti Church jutting out in the village of Kommeno. It is a twelve minute walk away.

Gouvia sits in the same sheltered bay as the neighbouring village of Kontokali. Kontokali also boasts a delightful marina and a fabulous sand and pebble beach. You will taste the freshest of fish at Kontokali, a popular spot for fishermen for generations. Being so close to Gouvia, you enjoy a double helping of superb beaches, one special one set on the headland that keeps Kontokali Bay tucked away from the Ionian Sea.

The Island/Getting There

And if you’re in need of a cosy abode, take a look at our flawless villas in Corfu.

Children of all ages are welcome and if the riders are proficient they may even get to discover the gorgeous coastline with the guides.

Kalami is the village where Lawrence Durrell lived in the 1930’s. It is now a small resort with several tavernas including the White House, where the Durrells lived. Children love visiting having watched the television drama series.

In Corfu Town, children enjoy climbing the walls of the Old Fortress, the Venetian fort built in the 15th century and the New Fortress. The fortresses boast fantastic views of the turquoise waters. Also in Corfu Town, you can take a trip in Kalypso Star, the glass-bottomed boat that leaves the harbour to explore the Ionian Sea’s fascinating marine life. A ten minute boat trip from Corfu Town takes you to the tiny island of Vidos where you can enjoy feeding the rabbits, seeing the peacocks, swimming and having lunch at the charming taverna.
Children love Aqualand, Corfu’s water park. It is just the place for a thrilling day out and offers a wonderful combination of fun, relaxation and adrenaline. The park caters for all ages and boasts a 350 metre long lazy river, a wave pool, an interactive pool with a rope course and jacuzzi, kayaking, family rafting and extreme slides such as the Double Twister, Catapult, the 12 metre high Kamikaze slides and the Hurricane Twist. In total there are 51 attractions to enjoy. For the very young ones there is a baby pool, a pirate area and the kids fantasy island. You can buy a half day pass, a full day pass, a two day pass or a weekly one.

For a completely different, non-water based day you can head to the majestic Mount Pantokrator. It is the highest peak in Corfu and dominates the island’s northeast region. It boasts the most amazing views of the whole of Corfu Island. On a clear day you can even see Albania and Italy even though Italy is 130km away! You can drive or hike to the mountain top, stopping at traditional Greek villages on the way.
