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.

From the moment we arrived and were greeted by Marcos we knew we were going to have a lovely holiday. The apartment was spotless, well appointed and cleaned several times during our stay. The garden was lovely and provided shade, hammocks, sunbeds and a large eating area. People walking by admired it as it was the only green space along the beach. There are plenty of restaurants just a short walk away along the beach to left and right. Shops and bars are a short walk away in land. Marcos, Beverly and Christopher are delightful hosts and we enjoyed their daily chats. They love entertaining their guests with a BBQ and Christopher cooks delicious chicken. We wanted a relaxing holiday and found the perfect place. We will be back.

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      This place was a great find. Set in a green garden with easy access to the pool and bar next door and literally 2 minutes walk from the sea. The sea shore is pebbly here but warm and good for swimming, there are some better beaches not far away, but I paddled most evenings having eaten at one of the many sea front restaurants whilst watching the sunset. It isn't over commercialised and has a pleasant family atmosphere. Even though there are three units sharing the same property there were no problems sharing the communal garden space.and there was virtually no noise travel between the units. Beware of mosquitoes! Once we had mastered the integral insect screens things were better, but we would recommend you take anti bite stuff and deterrent with you. We thought we would lunch at home but actually it was so easy to get food everywhere we didn't bother and we just strolled down to the front each evening and chose a different restaurant, having swum in the pool next door most mornings. We would thoroughly recommend this property as a real find and are thinking about going back and booking the whole thing for the family.
