Villa Viros enjoys a heavenly location above Viros, an ancient inland village in central Corfu. It is an ideal location, also close to the village of Perama, to explore the island. Surrounded by hills sprinkled with verdant greenery, the location is magical and very quiet. In recent years, Viros has become popular with the music scene with famous artists performing in the village. The villa is located on a small private hillside road so guests enjoy total privacy.

Villa Viros is only 4km from Corfu airport so you will be chilling in the villa in no time. Corfu Town is 6km from the villa, a very easy journey to enjoy its many wonderful charms. There are many beaches to enjoy easily from Villa Viros including Perama, Benitses, Palaiokastritsa, Glyfada, Canal d’Amour, Agios Gergios Pagon, Halikounas, Issos, Kerasia, Barbati and Agios Gordios.

Villa Viros is close to the mountainous area of Gastouri, also known as Acheillo. The Achillion Palace is wrapped in acres of lush greenery and parkland. The famous summer palace of Empress Sisi of Austria draws intrigue due to its historical and cultural significance. Built in 1898 by an Italian architect with inspiration from Greek mythology, it boasts iconic sculptures of Zeus, Hera and Achilles himself which were created by a German sculptor for the beloved Empress of Austria. The palace is surrounded by dazzling gardens and has incredible views of the Ionian Sea.

Benitses is an attractive, small village on the east coast of Corfu, roughly 12km south of Corfu Town. At the northern end of the village you will discover a pretty pebble and shingle beach with a marina at the far end. There are excellent opportunities for watersports. The delightful marina is home to close to two hundred boats and yachts. It is a very pretty sight. Visitors enjoy a good range of shops, restaurants and bars. Outside of Benitses is a go-kart track and north of the village is the Shell Museum. It is a private owner’s collection from the past twenty years.

Corfu Town or Kerkyra as it is otherwise known, is one of the most beautiful, graceful and elegant towns in Greece. Though seventh in size, it is one of the most populated in the whole of the Ionian Islands. 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 breathtaking 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.

Corfu is one of the most beautiful, lush green islands of Greece. With countless beaches, a few hundred villages, nearly a thousand churches, stunning scenery stretching from the crystal clear dazzling sea to the mountains, valleys, lagoons, waterfalls, forests and numerous caves, it is a dream destination. The fauna and flora is world famous due to the Durrell family and especially since the TV series. Together with fantastic cuisine, excellent shopping and an historic main town brimming with Venetian architecture and charm, it has something for everyone.

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.

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

Villa Viros is a beautiful villa that suits families perfectly though you do need to take care of little ones on the open staircase and in the pool and jacuzzi.  

Family entertainment on Corfu is endless. There are many beaches to choose from, from hidden, quiet coves to magnificent, highly organised stretches of sand with a huge array of watersports. Some of the best East oast beaches besides Barbati are Agios Ioannis Peristeron, Perama, Dassia, Ipsos, Agni, Kouloura and Kalami. 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. On the North coast, Kassiopi, Acharavi and Roda are very popular.

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. Benitses is a lovely, friendly resort with lots of facilities and fabulous restaurants. The beach is pebbly and shingle with a good selection of watersports and waterside tavernas.

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. The zigzagging mountain road starts halfway between Ipsos and Barbati Beach passing through Spartilas and Strinilas, one of the island’s highest villages. You can enjoy delicious local moscato wine from one of the village’s taverns. If you want to hike to the top you can start at the 14th century village of Old Perithia. It is a three hour round trip through thick forests, olive groves and rocky terrain. At the top you can visit the 17th century monastery.

  • Exceeded our expectations

    Posted by AM on 18/11/2019

    The villa and the service exceeded our expectations. The owner met us at the airport and escorted us to the villa where his wife had prepared some snacks and jugs of family wine for our welcome. After a thorough introduction to the house …

  • Villa Viros

    Posted by MM on 31/10/2018

    If you are looking for a truly amazing experience in Corfu, stop looking now. Villa Viros is the most awe-inspiring, relaxing, and cozy property I (and my group of 7) have ever been to in our lives. It truly looks even better than the pictures. The owner is an extremely hospitable host, who provides great communication, wonderful tips for the local area, and is always there if you need him. When we landed, he met us at the airport with two taxis and escorted us to the immaculate property. He gave us a list of restaurants, markets, cafes, excursions, and everything else in between that we had interest in for our time in Corfu. He left us so many snacks, wines, and food to nibble on while we laid out and enjoyed the sun around the pool and jacuzzi. The house was massive, so we had plenty of room and the right number of beds for our rather large group. Outside, the view is absolutely amazing, and all of the amenities (ping-pong, grass area for the provided soccer ball, brick pizza oven, etc.) gave us plenty to do. We hardly even left the property except to run to the market for food. The owner also went the extra mile and ordered two taxis to take us and offered to do the same if we planned to go anywhere else on the island. Overall, this was my best villa experience to this day, and I and my group plan on making this an annual trip (maybe more). Do yourself a favor and visit the wonderful Villa Viros.
