Overview

About the property

Villa Portokalia in Yaliskari Bay, North East Coast, Corfu Island - Yaliskari Bay, Corfu's Best Kept Secret

Some 40 minutes drive from the airport and Corfu Town lies 'The Orchard', a development of four deluxe villas designed in traditional style. On the north east coast of Corfu, nestling amongst olive groves 150 metres above the exquisite Yaliskari Bay, location for the new BBC drama based on the acclaimed book of Gerald Durrell "My family and other animals". This idyllic unspoilt bay, great for swimming and snorkelling, is close to the small village of Loustri, with its bakery; and the famous bay of Agni, with a selection of excellent tavernas where you can enjoy traditional cuisine and locally caught seafood and the village of Kalami, famed for the 'White House', where the Durrell's lived and wrote some of their books. Note: Due to the location it not recommended for people with walking difficulties.

Special interest holidays:

Boat Hire from Yaliskari Bay:

Small motorboat hire is available from Yaliskari Bay. A boat is the quickest way to get around and ideal for exploring the spectacular Northeast coastline and for reaching waterside tavernas, coves and beaches, which are almost inaccessible any other way. We suggest boats are pre-booked to ensure availability, particularly in the high season.

We can assist you with Car hire. We have competitive prices for Car hire and great offers for Early bookings. Please ask for details.

Horse Riding: Horse Riding is also a favoured activity in the Northern Area of the island. This can also be arranged by The Orchard.

Coast/Beach:

A gravel path, which zigzags for some 100 metres down a steep incline through the olive groves leads to the exquisite pebble beach at Yaliskiri Bay with its beautiful crystal clear waters - ideal for swimming and snorkelling.

Travel:

Some 40 minutes drive from the airport and Corfu Town. Villa Portokalia is part of 'The Orchard', a development of four deluxe villas designed in traditional style. On the north east coast of Corfu, nestling amongst olive groves 150 metres above the exquisite Yaliskari Bay.

Distances:

The little village of Loustri with its small bakery is just under 1 km away. The resort of Kalami with a choice of restaurants small supermarkets and bars is only 800metres away. The famous Agni Bay with its elegant restaurants is only a short walk (approx 800metres away) along a pretty country path over the rocks.

Further Details:

The resort of Kassiopi is a short drive away (15 minutes drive) and is home to many small souvenir shops, bars and restaurants, and also has some larger supermarkets than the immediate area around The Orchard.

Corfu Town is near to the airport and around 40 minutes drive from The Orchard. A cosmopolitan hotspot, Kerkyra, as pronounced in Greek, has many small boutiques, cafés, restaurants and museums.

For restaurants, there are many nice Taverna's in the surrounding bays including the renowned White House Taverna, Kalami, home of The Durrell Family in the 1920s. However, for a true traditional culinary experience, visit "A La Palaia Taverna" in the remote village of Strinilas on Mount Pantokrator, around 30 minutes drive from The Orchard.
