About Nikos

All family has been in tourist business but not in rental till now.

I run an accounting firm in Corfu island for 35 years, all my clients are involved in tourist market.

My wife is a private chef and my son is also a chef in a Corfu restaurant.

Nikos purchased this cottage in 2017

Why Nikos chose Kassiopi

The land belonged to my family more than 100 years, my father decided to build a small store to keep the wine we were making for the family.

After he passed away we renovated it ( actually bring it all down) and turned it to small romantic cottage, adding a swimming pool, kiosk etc.

What makes this cottage unique

Very close to the well known Avlaki beach (1 min ), still away from noise and crowd, in a gated 4000 sqm old olive grove, next to Erimitis forest.

You will enjoy private pool, fresco lunch at the kiosk or long walks to the ever green ancient olive grove of Corfu.

At walking distance there are restaurants, horse riding spot and sailing windsurf school.

A beautiful little cottage for 2

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent week, the house is lovely and set in a large garden plot with a good size pool, there is lots of different outside seating and a gas bbq. It has everything you could need, even a washing machine! Avlaki is very quiet with just 2 tavernas, if you want bars and nightlife go to Agios Stefanos or Kassiopi.

Perfect little cottage

  • 5 of 5

Avlaki Bay Cottage is in the ideal location, a stones throw from Avlaki beach. Although there is no sea view from the cottage the beach is just at the end of the bumpy little road. Avlaki bay is in a lovely unspoilt, quiet part of Corfu with just two tavernas facing the beach, both serving good food.

The cottage is delightful, all very new, nicely furnished and finished to a high standard. Although small my husband and I felt we had ample space in the house. Outside, however, we could have lost each other, so much space!

Nice shaded dining area next to a very smart gas BBQ. Another seating area with sofa and chairs. Fabulous size pool for such a small house, four sun loungers which can easily be moved around to follow sun. Garden very quiet, only two other properties nearby and we didn't hear a thing.

Nikos is the owner and was there to greet us. He is local and on hand if needed. There was a bad storm during our stay and the electricity was affected but a quick call and he sorted it out very promptly, very nice man!

All in all a very well equipped cottage for 2, but if like me you are looking at the photos on website and wondering if there is a wardrobe, there is, it is downstairs!

Have stayed in many properties in this area over last 15 years, some much bigger than this, but think this cottage is my favourite. Will definitely be back!

Relaxissimo

  • 5 of 5

Cottage graziosissimo con tutti i confort. Molto pulito e nuovo, la signora delle pulizie passa quasi tutti i giorni ed è molto gentile. Molto belli anche gli esterni con ampie zone dov'è possibile riposare all'ombra degli uluvi Zona di estrema tranquillità con la spiaggia raggiungibile in due minuti a piedi. A 5 minuti di auto spiaggia di sabbia ideale per chi ha bimbi piccoli.

You could stay in the quiet fenced olive grove by the private pool, laying in the sun next to the evergreen forest.

You can walk ( 2 min) to Avlaki beach or have a glass of wine under the tree at the beach front restaurants.

In the evening you could go to Kassiopi ( 2 km) or to St Stephanos ( 2 km) for night life.

For a longer trip you could drive to Corfu town (35 km) where you could visit museums, fortresses, historic center, go shopping, play at the casino or visit the the Golf club.
