INTRODUCTION of the Villa & LOCATION:
WELCOME to La Corfiota Villa Beach Residences & Apartments; a small charming complex of a House Villa with holiday residences & apartments, laid out over 1.7 acres of land in local stone, manicured grass and beautiful plants, flowers, ideal for couples (great privacy), group of friends and families. It's idyllically situated a mere 40 meters from the long stretch of sandy beach and clear aquamarine sea of the preferred holiday village of Agios Gordios, on the west coast of the isle of Corfu, 15 km from Corfu town and Corfu airport. Here the blue of the sea meets the blue of the sky on your doorstep, the 1,7 acres land on which the Villa house stands provides privacy and tranquillity amongst sea and mountain views summer flowers and manicured lawns.
The small complex enjoys a premier-unique position, so close to the beach and the end of the village road. The centre of the buzzing yet laid-back town is a three minute stroll away, shops and mini-markets, lounge bars / cafes and tavernas - restaurants, all boast fresh local produce, aromas and the well recorded warm Greek hospitality. Yet La Corfiota’s almost hidden position and lay out allow privacy, relaxation and are a joy to children. The views, the vegetation, the sound of birds and the waves of the sea, offer unmatched peace and tranquillity.
Summer options are endless here, from watersport activities, to boat outings, hiking up the mountains between cypress, olive and lemon trees, visiting neighbouring towns, simply lounging in the sun or enjoying the quiet view from the privacy of your own veranda or balcony.
Only one unbuilt plot property separates it from the beach and is neighboured by only one low key holiday property, hence enjoying empty green spaces, calm and privacy, allowing for leisure and relaxing times for parents and kids who can safely play in the well-kept gardens (one in the front, one at the back), while being literally steps off the centre of one of the best beaches in Corfu (calm turquoise water).

The RESORT of AGIOS GORDIOS boasts a prime middle island, scenic, west coast location, 15 kms or 25 mins drive from Corfu town and Corfu airport. It is a small, very safe and friendly beach resort, ideally suited for couples, families and young children. It is named after a Roman Christian Saint, one of the two small churches on the village. Being a relative small resort, Agios Gordios, despite its middle island location, remains an unspoiled area of Corfu due to relative strict local building permits.
The resort is overlooked by spectacular rock formations and sheer cliffs plunging into the crystal clear waters. A gigantic rock like a huge monolith, dominates the bay; the mythical ‘Ortholithi’ is a trademark rock rising out of the sea. The beach has a long shelf, so you can wade out quite a long way. The tides are quite gentle - ok for the kids.
Agios Gordios has a true village atmosphere; with its small fruit and vegetable shops, mini markets, café-bars, a patisserie, car and motor bike rentals, a medical care centre, cash machines, clothes, jewellery and tourist novelty shops, family run restaurants, positioned along the village road – high street and on beach front. They offer a wide range of cuisines at a level of service, quality and prices to meet most budgets, including traditional Greek, Seafood, Mexican, Italian. Most beach tavernas and all day café lounges, are at the south side along the beautiful sandy stretch.
To the north end of the beach a shingle and pebble beach unwinds for about a km with plenty of possibilities for being on your own. If you have children, possibly you/they will enjoy most the centre (where we are at) and south side of the sandy beach which slopes gently and is shallow for quite a way out. The beach (almost on our door step) is one of the most known - appreciated; a great beachfront curve ending at a steep craggy islet; it offers various water sports and scuba diving.
The nearby villages of Sinarades, Kato Garouna, the fishing villages of Pentati, Fiorula port, Paramonas Beach and Pavliana are all within walking, hiking or biking distance. There you can meet and spend time with the locals and sample their home-made wine and food.
To sum it up, Agios Gordios - a good base for walkers and nature lovers too - is a real find. Because of the physical layout - nature of the area it can't be spoilt by over-building. It is beautiful and as long as you are not looking for discos and pubs, this is the place for you, especially if you appreciate beautiful scenery, a wonderful beach and genuine hospitality
