Both houses are situated on the north east coast of Corfu. They are detached properties, in a secluded area with private pools. One villa with sea views and the other with views over the mountains. The position of these houses means they are both in a perfect location for all amenities, ie shops, bus routes, walking distance to beaches. The villas are detached but are next door to each other, which provides excellent scope for large families or friends wishing to holiday together but maintain their privacy. Both houses have been designed and built to the highest possible standards, so that guests can enjoy the best holiday accommodation ever Finally, there is a security system and telephone for local calls in each house. I guarantee that all visitors will not be disappointed.LAST MINUTE OFFER FOR GARNELIS' HOUSE FROM 6 OF JULY UNTIL 18 OF JULY. THE OFFER EXPIRES AT 20/6/15. CONTACT NOW!!!!

Hosts made our stay very special
Villa Alkmini is located in Sinies in a private side lane flanked by one other villa but is still very private due to the arrangement of the villas. It has great views over the Corfiot countryside, a modest but refreshing pool, and a decent kitchen and facilities. There is a cool pizza oven and BBQ area outside. 10M up or down the lane are great views of the Ionian sea and Albanian Hills and one of the front verandahs also gives a reasonable view of the amazing sunrises over the sea and Albania. The beach at Kerassia is about a 10minute walk with a steep descent, mainly on tarmac. It is not accessible this way by car due to a gate. If you are fit it is a challenging walk back. Fortunately, the beach is also accessible via Ag Stefanos. Ag Stefanos itself is charming with several tavernas on the waterfront and a similar number of power boat hire companies with power boats for beginners and licensed users - this is a great way to explore the coast too. There is a small beach at Ag Stefanos but Kerassia is probably better.
Antonis, your host and his family run the little cafe and the ample store in Sinies which is a short walk away from the villa. Antonis is very helpful and the family are very welcoming whenever you pop into the shop or cafe. There are fresh croissants every am and the cafe does a decent coffee too.
You can also explore the coast by foot as there is a path that goes all the way to Kassiopi to the North and to Agni to the South. There is also a boat taxi from Ag Stefanos to the Agni Taverna which is well worth doing one evening.
A few other comments:- This is a quiet and fairly expensive part of Corfu. Boat hire is very reasonable but eating out tends to be quite expensive.
There is probably more happening at night in Kassiopi which is 10 minutes by car. There are more beaches there too. We were happy with the a quieter stay so never really explored that.
Upon arrival, the owners, Yannis and Antonis, were most helpful and attentive to ensure things went smoothly. The property is extremely spacious and maintained to a very high standard with impressive views over the valley and to the sea in the distance. The swimming pool and Jacuzzi were kept very clean and were most welcome during the hot sunny days, though there are plenty of shaded outdoor areas if required. The rear terrace which overlooks the valley, has a fantastic large barbeque with electronic rotisserie large enough to cook a suckling pig!
The village supermarket (owned by Yannis and his family) is only a 5 minute stroll away and is well stocked with a good variety of home-made and local produce, including a good selection of wines (try the family's Garnelis Estate wine which is very good).
The villa is an excellent base from which to explore this beautiful part of Corfu. Yannis and Antonis are always on hand at the local supermarket should you need any advice or recommendations on places to visit. San Stefanos is only a five-minute drive away and is a charming village harbour with five excellent restaurants.
All-in-all, we could not fault the villa or the standard of service provided by Yannis and Antonis and would thoroughly recommend this as a perfect family holiday.
Coast/Beach: If walking 15 mins to Kerasia beach, by car 8 mins to Avlaki beach. The beautifully clear water beaches below the villas are shingle, and sandy beaches can be found approx 15 mins drive to the north of the island. Travel: The Kapodistria airport of Corfu is approx 36km away driving 45 minutes. Distances: Nearest supermarket is only 300 metres away (Yannis market). Acharavi, Corfu's second largest shopping area, is only 20 mins drive away. Further Details: Kassiopi is a small fishing village. approx 10 mins drive from the villas, and consists of shops, bars, restaurants/tavernas etc. Acharavi, Corfu's second largest shopping area, is only 20 mins drive away, where there is a water theme park and also banks, a post office and many other stores.
