About the property

Away from the crowds

Charming little traditional village house. Newly refurbished to a high standard. Set in a peaceful village location, with magnificent sea and mountain views from the balcony. It is under two miles from the next glorious sandy beach and 5 min walk to the village centre with bakery, taverna, restaurant and supermarket. There is a bus going from Corfu town to close to the house and public transport is available between Karousades and the main towns. However, in order to get around or go to the beach, a car or scooter is recommended. The ground floor features a modern build-in kitchen and dining area. Wooden stairs lead to the spacious bed/living room on the first level with a small balcony. The bedroom/lounge area features a double bed and a settee. The first floor also leads to a small balcony, which offers magnificent views over the bay. Relax with a glass of wine on the balcony and enjoy the sea view!

The property also features a terrace opposite the house.

Corfu-the green island: Corfu is also called the green island. No visitor to Corfu could miss its green olive groves. There are estimated to be well over three million olive trees being cultivated, covering roughly a third of the Island.

Corfu-Sea and sunshine: The north of Corfu is renowned for its beautiful sandy beaches. Hire a car or a scooter and take a tour of the North and its many magnificent beaches or go West to enjoy spectacular sunsets over the sea.

Ein perfekter Urlaub...

  • 5 of 5

Karroussades und das Ferienhaus haben genau das geboten, was wir uns erhofft haben! Ein malerisches, kleines Dorf mit kleinen Häusern und engen Gässchen, angenehm untouristisch, obwohl wir wirklich mitten in der Hauptsaison (Anfang August) dort waren. Total ruhig und beschaulich, trotzdem gibts neben netten Tavernen alle Einkaufsmöglichkeiten, die man braucht, um den täglichen Bedarf zu decken. Und das in 5 Minuten Fußweg :-)

Zum Strand (Yialos Beach) sinds zu Fuß rund 20 Minuten - er ist zwar klein, dafür aber auch ausgesprochen wenig besucht und ruhig... Direkt daneben unsere LIeblingstaverne: Taverna Yialos - supernette BesitzerInnen, wunderbares Essen und ausgesprochen gemütlich.

Das Haus - klein aber fein - ist hübsch renoviert, freundlich eingerichtet und mit allem Nötigen ausgestattet. Der Balkon ist zwar recht klein - die Aussicht ist dafür aber wunderschön...

Fazit: Wir hatten wunderbar entspannende zwei Urlaubswochen, haben uns rundum wohlgefühlt und sind sehr angenehm ohne fahrbaren Untersatz ausgekommen. Allerdings sollte man schon recht gut zu Fuß sein und gerne gehen, da doch einiges an Höhenmetern zu überwinden ist!

Die Busverbindungen sind typisch griechisch :-), man erreicht aber auf jeden Fall sein Ziel - Ausflüge nach Sidari (wohin wir wegen des Bankomaten mussten - sonst spricht aber nichts dafür...) oder auch Korfu Stadt sind daher leicht möglich.

A real 'away from it all' relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We were met and showed to the cottage and first impressions were slightly apprehensive.....due to location.

But once we had settled in and got our bearings we absolutley loved both the house and it's location.

Sidari was just a short drive away for the odd evening out and a tribute show or two!

Lots of nice traditional places to eat within easy reach.

An amazing find!

  • 5 of 5

We were so pleased to find this beautiful little house in a village amongst the locals far away from the tourist resorts- real Corfu! The property is a traditional stone building restored very lovingly inside. Modern, clean & having all that you need. The views from the house are amazing of the distant hills and sea and you wake up each morning to see such wonders from the kingsize bed!

The nearest beach and taverna serving excellent food is 5 minutes drive away. Our favourite beach was at Agni bay- such clear warm water & the sight of little fish swimming round your ankles! Your own transport is a must so that you can explore this beautiful island. We would thoroughly recommend this property & hope to return again.

Our perfect holiday

  • 5 of 5

We found this beautiful apartment online while looking for a place to stay on Corfu Island. We wanted something a little bit off “the beaten path”, away from the main tourist hangouts, large enough for two, fairly close to the coast and with cooking facilities. We were definitely not disappointed – it even exceeded our expectations!

This apartment is both romantic and cosy and a good size for one or two people. One can buy anything one needs in downtown Karousades, which is about a 5 minute walk away. Definitely try the bread from the local bakery! The facilities are good and we cooked for ourselves the entire two and a half weeks we were there. We were there in the off season, but one can tell from the feel of the town that it is not frequented as often by tourists, even during the high season (in contrast to the towns on the coast, such as Sidari). A reason for this may be that Karousades is on a fairly steep hill, which isn’t to be underestimated when planning to go out. There are bus stops nearby, but we never took them and we didn’t find out the schedules. We were here with our bikes, which we only recommend if one is fit, as the northern part of the island is very hilly. It was a good work out though ;). For those wanting to get out of the house often we would recommend having a car. When we had questions about the apartment, the service was always very quick and to our full satisfaction. The view from balcony is absolutely gorgeous and makes up for it being a bit narrow.

All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this apartment and would definitely recommend it to others!

sehr, sehr schön und ursprünglich!

  • 5 of 5

Auch wenn unsere Bewertung etwas verspätet abgegeben wird, ist es dennoch möglich, die intensiven Eindrücke noch gut zusammen zu fasen:

Es fing an mit einem sehr netten Kontakt mit der Vermietern, ging weiter mit einer sehr guten Betreuung vor Ort durch den griechischen Nachbarn Nikos und hört nun auf mit unserem Text hier. Die Erholung ist etwas her, war aber definitiv gegeben! Das Häuschen liegt in einem kleinen urigen Bergdorf mit fast nur Griechen - wer also wirklich Griechenland kennenlernen will, ist hier genau richtig. Busse fahren täglich mehrmals, das klappt sehr gut (sie kommen nicht pünktlich, dafür nehmen sie einen mit, egal wo man steht, wenn man winkt). Wir hatten zusätzlich ein Auto, das war natürlich Luxus. Das Häuschen ist sehr süß und einfach und sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Wir hatten den Luxus, dass wir noch nebenan die große Terrasse benutzen durften, was für uns einfach nur ein Traum und ein guter und langer Einstieg in den Tag bedeutete (Frühstück und lange Leseeinheit täglich dort, es stehen echt gute Bücher in den Regalen!).

Wir haben uns gerade wegen des Eintauchens in das einfach griechische Leben, das so anders ist als das hier, sehr gut erholt, kommen dieses Jahr wieder und von daher war es genau das Richtige für uns! Wir freuen uns auf die Ursprünglichkeit und die Abgeschiedenheit von jeglichem Tourirummel und "unser Häuschen";-)

The house is located just above Karousades, a traditional corfiot village, unspoiled by tourism. Karousades itself features a supermarket, a butcher, a post office and a church, everything is within walking distance from the house. Just down the hill you will find taverna 'Stilia' with excellent local food and a magnificent view of the sea and surroundings. The cottage is situated away from the the traffic but in close distance to the main road. The next beach is located less than 2 Km from the house. Astrakeri Beach is one of the region's most popular resort beaches and known for its undeveloped nature. It is situated alongside lush, exotic vegetation, which includes lots of olive trees and tropical shrubs and never gets really crowded. Enjoy a cold beer just above the beach at the taverna 'Three brothers'.
