Villa Theodora is on the beautiful Greek island of Corfu. It is nestled against a slope overlooking the surrounding hills, villages, Corfu town and the sea. It is in a forest next to the Palace of Achilleion also known as Palace of Sissi. The Villa is centrally located and all of Corfu’s attractions are within reach.
Being on an island there are many beautiful beaches closeby. To mention a few:
Pelekas Beach (about 12 km or 20 minutes drive from the villa) is a beautiful sandy beach with spectacular sunsets. It offers a lot of sport activities. It has volleyball, tennis and basketball courts. There are also a variety of traditional restaurants and bars. Included amongst these are one of the best restaurants in Corfu. Tortuga restaurant is part of the hotel Mayor.
Popular Glyfada beach is a sandy beach about 25 minutes (14.7 km) drive from the villa. It has numerous nice restaurants, bars and a water park in the sea. If you are still bored you can do other water sports such as windsurfing or water skiing. Does your body need some pampering? Enjoy a massage right there on the beach.
Agios Gordios (about 9.6 km or about 15 minutes drive away), is a relative quiet sandy beach ideal for families looking for a more relaxing, peaceful time. There are traditional restaurants and bars.
Benitses beach is the closest beach to the villa. (It is 5 km or about a 12 minutes drive away.) It is a gravel beach next to the city of Benitses. Benitses is a tourist city with a variety of restaurants and bars. In Benitses you can find cars, motorbikes, quads, bikes and boats for rent or book a boat trip to a nearby destination.
You definitely should find time to drift a little further afield and visit the following beaches:
Palaiokastritsa ( 27km or about 30 minutes drive away) is a very popular tourist destination. Palaiokastritsa has unique beaches and landscape. There are numerous caves on different beaches. To explore rent a boat or if you feel particularly active rent a water bicycle and paddle to a nearby beach and cave. Apart from numerous restaurants, bars, souvenir stores there is also Angelokastro or Castle of Angels built in Byzantine times.
If you are in a romantic mood visit Canal d'Amour (41km, about 1 hours drive away). Legend has it that if two people swim together through Canal D'Amour they will fall in love. Despite the romantic legend it is suitable for both couples and families. The beach is small and cozy, tucked in between rock formations.
Other tourist destinations worth considering include the following:
Corfu town is a popular, beautiful, old European city. Tourists from all over the world give it a cosmopolitan feel. It has many narrow, cobblestone streets flanked by old buildings, filled with many restaurants and bars, reminiscent of Venice. The city centre is also very close, about 7 km from the Villa.
The Palace of Achilleion or the Palace of Sissi (Empress Sissi from Austria built the palace) is very close to the house. The palaces main theme is Achilles from Greek mythology. Achilleion's location provides panoramic views of Corfu town to the north and of the southern parts of the island. The palace garden is impeccably landscaped.
The biggest waterpark in the north of Greece, the Aqualand Park, is only 11.6 km or about 15 minutes drive away from the villa.
There are numerous restaurants, tavernas, eateries and pizzerias close to the villa.
Consider Pouli tsi kotas Taverna not even half a kilometer fro the villa. It is a cosy, traditional tavern with very tasty food and wine offered at very reasonable prices.
A little further away is La spiaggia restaurant by Aeolos. It is one of the best pizzerias on Corfu.
There is a general store or supermarket called Proton very close (0.3 km) to the villa. They should satisfy most basic needs. They sell food, vegetables, general groceries and alcohol. We particularly enjoy the fruit, not just from Proton, but on the island in general.
The Villa is very close to the airport (6.5 km or about 15 minutes driving) and close to the port (9 km or about 20 minutes driving).
In case of accident or illness there are a lot of pharmacies, a day clinic and a hospital close by.
We hope you found the information helpful and that you decided to visit our magnificent house in a magical place.
