You will enjoy beachfront bliss at Villa Lyric. It enjoys a fabulous location in the corner of Apraos Beach, 40km north of Corfu Town.
The island of Corfu boasts over beaches in total, a few hundred charming villages, nearly a thousand churches, a significant mountain range, valleys, waterfalls and forests as well as more than three million olive trees, three lagoons and numerous enchanting caves. The island’s fauna and flora are world-famous, largely due to the Durrell family and the TV series. There is much to discover!
It takes about an hour to walk to the picturesque resort of Kassiopi or you can jump in the car. With the dramatic Mount Pantokrator overlooking the resort and with a stunning harbour, this once quiet fishing village is a must 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.
In the centre of the north coast, you will find Acharavi, a delightful resort which enjoys a wonderful variety of shops, bars and restaurants. These are sprinkled along the central street and along the beach promenade. Acharavi’s 3km golden sandy beach stretches the whole length of the town. Visitors enjoy a wonderful selection of beach bars.
Avlaki Beach sits on the other side of Kassiopi. It is a tranquil resort with a pretty pebbled beach that enjoys dappled shade from the pine and olive trees that are sprinkled along it. Avlaki Beach enjoys some watersports and a few tavernas that serve delicious food.
Paleokastritsa is rumoured to be the mythical island of the Phaeacians and the Bay of Paleokastritsa is 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 most famous beach in Paleokastritsa.
The vibrant 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 fine dining should not be missed. The town’s stunning architecture enjoys many 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.

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.
How to reach Corfu island
There are two ways to get to Corfu island: either by flight or by ferry.
By plane: During April to October, several direct flights arrive to "Ioannis Kapodistrias" Airport from Europe as Corfu is one of the most popular travel destinations in Greece. During these months, the airport also receives many domestic flights every day from Athens and Thessaloniki.
By ferry: Travelling by ferry is the most popular way of transport in Greece. Ferries to Corfu depart from Patra and Igoumenitsa. If you are travelling from Europe, Corfu is easily accessible by ferry from Venice, Bari, Brindisi or Ancona too. You can easily book your tickets using the link below or the search engine - the port you are looking for is "TBC".
Villa Lyric is excellent for a family holiday and to bring the generations together. There is so much space, you could easily book this property for two families or more. Older children might appreciate having their own space in the cottage and annexe but this will not work for young children. The beachfront setting is amazing, the pool is excellent and the tennis court and table tennis and table football games go down a treat.
Families enjoy an excellent array of activities on the island of 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. Apraos Beach is popular for snorkelling and other watersports. Acharavi is an excellent family-friendly beach with several schools teaching children to sail or windsurf. Avlaki is 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.
For some thrilling fun, children adore the Aqualand water park. The park offers rides, slides and fun for all ages, boasting a lazy river, wave pool, kayaking, rafting and extreme slides such as the Double Twister, Kamikaze and Hurricane Twist.
For a totally different day out, you can 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 love 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.
