Villa Althea enjoys a wonderful countryside location with panoramic views over Kremmithas, Kassiopi, St Stephano, Erimitis and as far as the Albanian coastline and the island’s majestic mountains. In between the Ionian Sea and Mount Pantokrator, the natural scenery is beautiful. Many of the local shops offer a delivery service to the villa at a small extra cost. There are shops in Sinies 2km away, Avlaki 3km away, Kassiopi 4km away and Coyevinas 4km away.

The island of Corfu has over 120 beaches in total, a few hundred villages, nearly a thousand churches, a significant mountain range, valleys, waterfalls and forests as well as more than 3 million olive trees, three lagoons and numerous caves. The fauna and flora is world famous due to the Durrell family and especially since the TV series. As well as exploring the coastal towns and villages, you really should explore the interior and the mountainous regions.

The nearest beaches are at Avlaki, St Stephano, Coyevinas and Kassiopi. You can be there in minutes so you really get the best of both worlds. Kassiopi 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.

Corfu Town or Kerkyra as it is otherwise known, is 35 km away. It is one of the most beautiful and elegant towns in Greece. Though seventh in size, Corfu Town is one of the most populated towns in the whole of the Ionian Islands. The entire old city is declared a UNESCO World Heritage site. Corfu Town’s unique charm, sophistication, character, atmosphere and faultless cuisine should not be missed. The town’s stunning architecture has many strong influences including Sicilian, Venetian, French and English. This beautiful town is brimming with elegant mansions, magnificent palaces, beautiful squares, majestic fortresses and the very best selection of gastronomic restaurants.

Roda is a lovely resort on the north coast of Corfu. The eastern part of the beach is the village’s picturesque fishing harbour. There are plenty of tavernas, bars and shops and a delightful sandy beach. Many watersports are available as well as boat trips to Paleokastritsa, Sidari, Corfu Town and the coastal islands near Corfu. Roda also boasts some archaeological sites such as the remains of a Doric temple dating from the 5th century BC. You will see some of the finds from Roda in the archaeological museum in Corfu Town.

Not far from Roda, you will find Acharavi which enjoys a wonderful variety of shops, bars and restaurants which are sprinkled along the central street and along the beach promenade. Its golden beach stretches the whole length of the town, a lengthy 3km. Visitors will find plenty of loungers and umbrellas for hire and a wonderful selection of beach bars.

Paleokastritsa is rumoured to be the mythical island of the Phaeacians and the Bay of Paleokastritsa to be the place where Odysseus disembarked and met Nausicaa for the first time. The monastery in Paleokastritsa dates back to 1225 and is home to an interesting museum which houses the holy and precious relics of the monastery. It stands on a sheer hillside brimming with trees and olives facing the deep blue sea. The resort is very hilly and nestles beneath the folds of steep verdant slopes of olive groves and citrus orchards. Agios Spyridon is the the most famous beach in Paleokastritsa.

The Island/Getting There

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

Reviews

  • Wonderful!

    Posted by John on 02/09/2020

    Wonderful week at Villa Althea - amazing view from huge swimming pool, great location close to several delightful beaches, loads of space for 12 of us

  • 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!
