Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Greece - Annalena Hills Above Kouloura

Very private, stunning sea views, pool close to San Stefanos / Agni / Kassiopi

Situated on the stunning and exclusive N.E. coast of Corfu with it's crystal clear bays and exceptionally good waterside tavernas - we are 5 minutes drive to Kouloura with it's fantastic fish taverna and 10 minutes from Agni, San Stefanos and Kassiopi.

Annalena is set down a quiet country lane within 2 acres of olive, almond and cypress trees in the hills above Koloura with countryside walking on the doorstep - these are the hillsides that Gerald Durrell explored and little has changed as you can see from the new ITV series The Durrells - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SDLdNwWatqg.

Annalena has an extremely spacious uncluttered interior, furniture is stylish yet comfortable and welcoming offering everything that you could want from a relaxing holiday home. There are shaded and covered terraces outside every room offering stunning sea views. The infinity swimming pool has a stone loggia complete with a fireplace at one end and a shaded dining area for 10 with an outdoor kitchen at the other so you can swim and relax by the pool all day long. There is a jacuzzi hot tub and outdoor shower area with the most magnificent views across to the rising mountains of Albania.

The house is superbly equipped and the layout offers spacious accommodation for a large family and a good deal of privacy for two families travelling together.

Our house-keeper visits 3 times a week or can provide a daily service for an additional cost. Babysitting can also be arranged.

There are two local tavernas within easy walking distance.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My third visit here to Annalena, still as stunningly beautiful, so stylish and well equipped. Spectacular views, the peace and tranquility here is wonderful, what a pleasure to be amongst the local culture, no stress just pure relaxation.

Visited Old Perithia again. It is well worth a walk up past the Old School House - fantastic views.

This has been a truly amazing week - weather hot and sunny.

Wonderful luxury hideaway in the hills

  • 5 of 5

A truly magnificent hideaway high in the hills of Corfu overlooking a beautiful coastline.

Annalena is a magnificent and beautiful house that is clearly loved and cared for by its owners.

The house itself is absolutely stunning and has been furnished and decorated as though it is a main home - ensuring that everything you need during your stay is available if and when needed.

The house was absolutely spotless and the housekeepers have to be praised for this as it was immaculate and nothing was out of place.

A welcome pack with wine, chocolates and other welcomed products was provided on arrival which we greatly appreciated throughout our stay.

The pool and pool area was very clean and it was such a lovely place to spend the hot days that we had whilst we were there. A hot tub is also available to use at your leisure.

Annalena was exactly as described on the website and the photos were very true to life.

You can walk into the local villages through the beautiful hillsides and you will find friendly smiles anywhere you go. We particulary liked a restaurant that was around 15 mins walk away called Panorama - good value for money, food is very tasty and extremely friendly people run the place.

There is a supermarket not far away to pick up everyday essentials as and when you need them.

The owner provided us with very extensive instructions on how to get to the villa from the airport and they literally were perfect and got us straight to the doorstep of Annalena. Best instructions that I've ever been given to direct me somewhere.

A very well written, personal and thorough guide was provided by the owners about local attractions, restaurants to try and even a wine guide!

We had our 3 month old son with us and a travel cot was provided and set up for us on our arrival. The shaded area at the end of the pool made a perfect spot for our son in the shade during the day whilst he was sleeping.

The villa has an absolutely magnificent view and you genuinely feel like you are the only people in the world when staying here.

We would definitely recommend this villa to our friends for a stay and if you want somewhere to completely relax - this is the villa for you!

beautiful luxurious villa

  • 5 of 5

The property is maintained to an extremely high standard, the decor is stunning, everything has been thought of to make your stay comfortable , luxurious and beautiful. The views are outstanding. The villa itself exceeds expectations as although the photographs are wonderful, it is even better on arrival. The owners had left a handbook with everything you could wish to know and had taken a great deal of time and trouble over it, which meant that you wasted no time trying to find everything out, which was extremely thoughtful. The local area is beautiful, lots to do and see, and wonderful tavernas. We had just the best holiday and hope to return again.

Beautiful relaxing villa with an amazing view

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic villa to stay in north Corfu. The villa is pristine with lots of character, many, many eating areas and terraces - always somewhere perfect for each part of the day. Great swimming pool and so relaxing. Easy to travel to other parts of Corfu and lots of beaches, tavernas/restaurants and activities to do and explore. North Corfu is beautiful with hills of flowers and crystal blue seas. Highly recommend this villa and would go back and stay again.

Stunning Villa

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 6 with 4 teenagers . We had a fabulous stay at Annalena & would love to return again.

Chris & Janine were extremely helpful before we arrived giving us lots of information & tips to get the best from our stay.

The villa is stunning , a real home from home with everything you could possible wish for , including an impressive library of cookery books, interior design books & local interest books, not to mention the amazing library of DVDs

The villa is spotlessly clean & very well maintained. The views are spectacular .

We spent lots of lazy days by the beautiful infinity pool reading , relaxing & having long lunches under the shade of the fabulous outdoor kitchen.

We hired a motorboat nearly every other day which was great fun, exploring the beautiful coastline & stopping off to either have a picnic lunch & a swim in the numerous coves or for lunch or drinks in the numerous tavernas scattered along the coast.

The teenagers enjoyed water skiing, dinghy sailing, doughnut ting & a trip to the water park near Corfu Town.

A very successful family holiday .

An idyllic break, in beautiful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful villa, surrounded by incredible scenery! The attention to detail, and the little extra touches make this a very special destination. Though we did tear ourselves away from Annalena a couple of times, to visit a few of the recommended spots on the coast, everything we could have wanted was there for us. Evenings on the terrace, watching fireflies dancing all around us, in complete peace. Our party spanned three generations, and there was something for everyone at Annalena. Very reluctantly we left at the end of our stay, hoping to return again soon.

We are superbly situated for the best that the NE coast has to offer. The pretty bay at Kouloura is just over five minutes drive away and has a fantastic taverna. Enchanting bays such as Agni, San Stefanos and Keresia are within ten to fifteen minutes drive, as is the bustling harbour village of Kassiopi with it's array of shops, bars and restaurants offering something for all ages.

Motor boat hire is available locally offering the opportunity to explore quiet beaches and rocky coves. Avlaki has an English run sailing and windsurfing school. There is a PADI diving school within 15 minutes. Water-skiing is available at Kalami which is just over 5 minutes drive. Horse riding is available locally.

Corfu Town has world heritage status and is well worth a visit for culture and great shopping.
