What you should know…

  • The pool is above the villa, and therefore poolside supervision is required if you have little ones
  • There is a very handy elevator in the property, however access to the pool isn't wheelchair friendly
  • If it gets a bit nippy, the villa has a working fireplace
  • The tennis court isn't in perfect nick, however it is absolutely superb for those not in the world's top 500!
  • The access road is a little bumpy

Location

About the surrounding area of Villa Althea
Beach Nearby Watersports Rural Location Horse Riding Outstanding Landscapes

Boasting an abundance of natural beauty, stunning beaches and a vivid nightlife, Corfu is probably the most famous Greek island attracting thousands of visitors every year.

The “beautiful and rich land” of Homer is a paradise of poetic landscapes and culture. Its strategic position made it vulnerable to foreign conquestors. As a result, a blend of the Venetian, British and French cultures was integrated to the Greek identity. These western influences are prominent in the island’s architecture.

Villa Althea is at 4 km from Kassiopi, a charming, little resort village a short drive from Corfu Town, in the north part of this marvelous Ionian island. Its countless sandy beaches, watersports clubs, traditional tavernas serving mouth-watering local dishes and lively nightclubs have turned it into an extremely attractive destination, ideal for all ages.

In between the Ionian Sea and Mount Pantokrator, the natural scenario is unique and will leave you breathless. What better setting for some trekking or an outing on horseback? A well-equipped equestrian club can be found at 3 km from the property.  

Although the villa enjoys a privileged isolated position, it is only 5-10 minutes drive from a lot of interestings seaside villages such as Aghios Stephanos, Avlaki and Kerasia.

Corfu town (22 km) seems like a fresco painting that has come to life. Liston’s elegant arcades hang over the marble paved square where the locals gather for a cup of coffee or a drink. The old part, with its special design and quiet, narrow roads is the biggest preserved medieval town in Greece.

Due to the position of our fantastic property, we highly recommend hiring a car and get to explore its beauties!

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. With its UNESCO World Heritage status and unbeatable strolling opportunities, there is no better place to start exploring than the main town and its historic old quarter, where ancient churches, scattered ruins and a handful of museums mean Corfu’s layers of history can be found just about everywhere. And if you’re in need of a cosy abode, take a look at our flawless villas in Corfu.

Reviews

  • Overall = Great

    Posted by Joe on 11/07/2018

    Overall great. Staff is excellent. Swimming pool area is excellent. Views are wonderful. House is very comfortable. The location is perfect...close to Kasiopi but enough up the hill so that it's very quiet. The only downside is if you play tennis...the court is not a full-size court...it is only about 75% of a court...so you can't play real tennis.

  • AMAZING

    Posted by Buffy on 08/06/2018

    We all had a wonderful holiday at Villa Althea in Corfu. The villa is beautiful, very well thought out, comfortable and was perfect for what we wanted. The pool was amazing and a big hit with all the children.
    I particularly wanted to say that Claire was absolutely AMAZING and we could not have asked for a more helpful, friendly and professional person to oversee our stay!
