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.

Most of the nearby restaurants, Fuego, Medusa and Veggelara, served high quality food and drinks. Also the short walking distance to the Main Street in Acharavi with all kinds of shops were appreciated. The apartment was clean, well equipped and in good shape. Ingrid and Alki were very lovely, helpful and attentive hosts. We now regret we only spent one of our two weeks at Corfu at this place. We would very much like to come back
