The delightful Villa Karousades is located in a wonderful spot in Karousades, just outside Sidari on the north coast of Corfu. With four bedrooms it sleeps up to eight guests. Large groups of guests often book Villa Karousades along with our Villa Spiros and Villa Pine sleeping up to twenty two guests in total if you use the available sofabeds. It is a great arrangement with each family enjoying some private time. If Villa Karousades is booked alone, it offers total seclusion from the other villas and enjoys the largest amount of outdoor space.

The village of Karousades is nestled in a cypress and pine forest cloak on the outskirts of Sidari. Its shabby chic streets are piled high with pretty, pastel painted, vine-strung houses with their age-worn shutters and terracotta roofs and complete with a sprinkling of tavernas. You will feel as though time has forgetten this authentic little village. Just five minutes away is the neon lit Sidari with its fabulous package of entertainment and its beautiful beach. You will discover cocktail bars, live music, Greek dancing, karaoke and perhaps the odd plate smashing session. As well as its lively nightlife, there is plenty for children and some excellent restaurants. The wonderful resorts of Roda and Acharavi are ten minutes away and the popular Kassiopi on the north east coast is 20-25 minutes away. Villa Karousades is also just 5 minutes drive from the Canal D’Amour, a fabulous tourist attraction.

Villa Karousades is a traditional villa with the added facilities of an excellent, generous sized swimming pool with a jacuzzi and a fabulous garden. The villa boasts excellent sea views and a wonderful alfresco dining area. The beautiful sandy beach can be reached in minutes in the car. With two double bedrooms and two twins, the villa sleeps eight guests very comfortably. There are two double sofa beds in the main lounge which can be used, plus there are two separate, independent apartments on the lower floor. These can accommodate another four guests so please let us know if you have any interest.

The villa’s open plan living and dining space is very traditional with a feature fireplace built into the corner of the room. The furniture is comfortable with lots of dark wood blending in with the open staircase to the upper floor. Doors open to the balcony where you can enjoy your morning cup of coffee and the spectacular sea views. The bedrooms are bright and airy with either doors opening to a balcony or huge windows. The villa is enveloped in lush greenery so every angle offers a wonderful vista. The beds all enjoy hotel quality linens. You will wake up to the sounds of birds chirping, marvelling at this wonderful, tranquil location.

Villa Karousades swimming pool is an absolute joy. It is enormous and is surrounded by numerous loungers, parasols and an egg chair, the perfect spot to enjoy the sunshine, your holiday read and those astonishing views. You will enjoy the sunsets here, they are amazing. Steps lead to the beautiful lush garden. Here you will find a delightful alfresco dining area, again very generous in size so that if you have friends staying in the next door villas, they can join you for barbecues. The pergola is draped with vines offering some welcome shade during your meal.

Karousades is a charming village with a sprinkling of tavernas amongst the pretty, flower clad houses. It is surrounded by lush greenery on the outskirts of the popular tourist resort of Sidari. It is approximately 35 km from Corfu Town and the airport. Sidari offers a fabulous array of restaurants, bars, supermarkets, vehicle hire shops, souvenir shops and travel agents offering many different tours. Sidari Beach is wonderful with excellent watersports and many organised loungers and parasols. There is a scuba diving school close to the beach. The small port offers boat trips to the isolated islands of Othoni, Mathraki and Erikoussa, known for their turquoise waters and stunning coves. Sidari also boasts a small water park inside a hotel which is open to non-residents.

Very close to the villa is the famous Canal d’Amour with its unique geological formations. It is definitely a must visit being so close.

Roda is a lovely resort ten minutes away from the villa. 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, Corfu Town and the coastal islands near Corfu. Roda 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.

Also not far from the villa is Acharavi which enjoys a wonderful variety of shops, bars and restaurants. They are sprinkled along the central street and along the beach promenade. Acharavi’s 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.

In the lively north eastern corner of Corfu you will discover the beautiful resort of Kassiopi. With the dramatic Mount Pantokrator overlooking the resort and with a stunning harbour, this once quiet fishing village is definitely worth a visit. 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. There is a good selection of excellent restaurants and some good shops. 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.

The Island/Getting There

Villa Karousades is perfect for a family holiday. With four bedrooms, a comfortable living space, a huge swimming pool and a garden surrounded by lush greenery, this villa offers much to families. It is just a few minutes drive to the beach. Whilst Karousades is something of a sleepy village, just down the road you will find the bustling tourist resort of Sidari. There you will find a highly organised beach with watersports and diving, a small harbour offering boat trips and a fabulous array of souvenir shops, bars, cafes and restaurants. Children enjoy the wonderful formations at the Canal d’Amour.

There is a long list of family friendly activities on Corfu. There are many beaches to choose from, from hidden, quiet coves to magnificent, highly organised stretches of sand with water sports and dining facilities everywhere. Sidari, Roda and Acharavi all enjoy lovely sandy beaches. Avlaki is also popular. You will find several schools teaching children to sail or windsurf. Avlaki is also a good spot for equestrian fun at the local Dimitris stables. Children of all ages are welcome and if the riders are proficient they may even get to discover the gorgeous coastline with the guides.

Children love Aqualand, Corfu’s water park. It is perfect for a thrilling day out. The park caters for all ages and boasts a lazy river, wave pool, kayaking, rafting and extreme slides such as the Double Twister, Kamikaze and the Hurricane Twist.

You should also head to the majestic Mount Pantokrator, the highest peak in Corfu and a popular pilgrim spot. 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! There are plenty of hiking trails.

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 10 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.
