Make a holiday villa in Acharavi your home away from home

With over 3,000 hours of sunshine every year and natural beauty that is beyond comparison, the Ionian island of Corfu is a holidaymaker’s ideal destination. But apart from an assortment of enticing beaches covered in fine sand and lined with inviting taverns, Corfu offers a gateway into Greek history and mythology as well as the chance to rub shoulders with the warm locals. To the north of Corfu is a lively yet tranquil resort called Acharavi where visitors can find excellent holiday accommodation. The pick of the accommodation options are the villas which avail stunning panoramas of the sea while also putting them close to kilometres of picturesque beach. Among the facilities guests can look forward to enjoying in their Acharavi holiday homes include ample gardens with outdoor pools and barbecues to spice up mealtimes. While indoors Acharavi holiday rental residents can enjoy satellite TV and Internet access.

Things to do

-Ancient ruins: Whether or not one is a certified history geek, a visit to the site of centuries-old ruins is always an exciting way to spend time in Greece. Just as they leave Acharavi visitors will find the much talked about Roman baths. A temple dedicated to Apollo is also not far from this resort. A walk through the narrow, cobbled streets of Corfu’s old town will take one back in time as will a visit to the Palaio Frurio, a Venetian fortress that faces the sea. It is the scene of dramas that seek to recreate historical events.

-Historical buildings: Visitors will also want to pass by the Palaia Anaktora, a complex of ancient Roman buildings which once housed the king of Greece. Apart from marvelling at the architecture visitors can wander through gardens filled with exotic trees and flowers. When they walk in they’ll find a unique museum which showcases a vast collection of art from Asia. There is an art cafe in the grounds of this building which also has its own gallery. Other ancient establishments include a 17th century monastery and some mansions that date back to the same period found in the nearby village of Kynopiastes.

-Beaches: There are a number of beaches in Corfu from which the bountiful summer sunshine can be enjoyed. One of the more popular of these is found just outside the village of Lakones; the bay of Paleokastritsa. The walk or drive there provides some sublime views as well as a slew of cafes where excellent coffee is served. Those booking Acharavi holiday homes outside the peak holiday season can enjoy the smashing scenery and a dip in the water without the crowds.

-Water sports and activities: Those travelling with their kids need not worry about things to keep them busy; a trip to the Hydropolis water park will do the trick. Besides the usual water slides and children’s pools, there are facilities for tennis, beach volleyball and other sports. Adults can be taught how to scuba dive there and there is a bar area where the thirsty can find refreshment. Greek-style meals are also served in the restaurant there.

Weather in Acharavi

The island of Corfu showcases excellent Mediterranean conditions and visitors don’t have to book their Acharavi holiday homes in the typical summer months when temperatures regularly go beyond 30°C and masses of tourists throng the beaches. They can plan their holiday for May when temperatures average at a milder 23°C allowing them to enjoy hikes through the lush green landscape without suffering too much. Conditions are more or less the same in October. Winter begins in November and is usually mild with a bit of rainfall.

Travel to Acharavi

Visitors jetting in from outside Greece will want to book a flight to the Ioannis Kapodistrias Airport. During the peak tourist season flights are available from most European cities to this airport. From here travellers can take a taxi to cover the 40km to their holiday homes in Acharavi or take a cheaper shared shuttle to Corfu Town and connect from there. Those combining their tour of Corfu with a trip to Venice in Italy can simply take a ferry to this island from Venice.

It was very spacious with lovely areas to sit and eat or just to just chill, our favourite being the large balcony off the master bedroom. The views are awesome and the passing ferries, cruise ships and other smaller boats provide no end of interesting things to see. The surrounding area is very beautiful, lots of gorgeous flowers, stunning scenery and interesting wildlife. The owners were very helpful answering my queries before we went and during our stay. The villa is in a very peaceful and relaxing location with lots of lovely beaches and tavernas nearby, our favourite had to be The White House at Kalami where we spent a couple of wonderful family evenings. All in all a fabulously relaxing holiday, enjoyed by all, adults and teenagers alike.

He was a marvelous host who was very attentive and focused on ensuring that we had a fabulous stay in the beautiful mountains. All requests were dealt with very efficiently. Amazing views of the sea and the Albanian Mountains in the distance. The local town was a perfect balance of Greek culture and tourism with the best sandy beach nearby, excellent for children and adults alike only 5 mins drive away called Kalamaki Beach. Lots of free parking. The local restaurants were fantastic, some of the best food we have eaten and reasonably priced. Odysseus was excellent so was the recommended Lemon Garden. The food was great as was the simple restaurant at the bottom of the road called Mythos Taverna with great home cooking and the best Baked Feta. The Villa is set in the most amazing mountain area with a fantastic warm swimming pool. Great facilities for adults and children with extremely comfortable loungers. The villa is equipped with everything you could need. Bedding and towels were changed more then once a week and the villa was cleaned too. Fabulous barbecue area with fantastic views. We highly recommend this villa and town.

The property has been finished to a luxurious standard and has everything needed and many extras for a stress free stay catering for all ages. Our family group (2 adults and 2 'grown up' boys) loved everything about the apartment - the outside shower was a big hit- and we felt completely spoiled by the surrounding gardens which provide areas of welcome shade and privacy and is a little green oasis on the beachfront. Marcus and Beverley are perfect hosts. They have a relaxed and friendly outlook and made us feel very welcome. They were unobtrusive, but on-hand, from the moment we arrived making sure all was well and giving us information about local transport and places of interest/beauty spots worth visiting. The housekeeper (Christine) attended the apartment regularly to change the linen and towels and everything was spotless. Our stay was a mix of lazy beach-side days with fun water activities (and the biggest, freshly made do-nuts sold on the beach!)and days out. We took in North Corfu visiting Kassiopi by local bus, Roda by foot, we saw Sidari and its caves from the sea by hiring a local boat, the mountains and villages by taking a bike tour (S-Bikes) and visited the local museum, Corfu distillery, monastery, Paleokastritsa and saw some spectacular views and sunsets. Acharavi has plenty of restaurants/tavernas, several beach-side, serving some great reasonably priced food. These are within walking distance of the apartment, as are the local supermarkets. Thank you Markos - the attention to detail in the apartments and the personal touches make it very special. Beverley and Christopher - you are lovely people who we feel glad to have met. I could go on and on............for us, it was perfect!
