About the property

The Orchard - Villa Karydia, Yaliskari Bay, Nr Agni, 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.

Luxury, views & position!

  • 5 of 5

This villa has been a firm favourite with us over the years. We have returned from our fourth stay and it is just as magical.

Access through the olive grove to the small pebble cove of Yaliskari bay & the rocky coast path to Agnis Tavernas are a big draw, especially with the water taxi back.

Driving is tricky down to the villa, but you soon get the hang of it. Not suited for the less mobile.

We look forward to returning

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 assit you with CAR HIRE. We have competitive prices for Car hire and great offers for Early bookings.Please ask for details. Horse Riding is also a favoured activity in the Northern area of the island. This can also be arranged by The Orchard.

Travel:

Some 40 minutes drive from the airport and Corfu Town. Villa Karydia 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 1km away. The resort of Kalami with a choice of restaurants, small supermarkets and bars is only 800 metres 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 hot spot, Kerkyra, as pronounced in Greek, has many small boutiques, cafés, restaurants and museums. For restaurants, there are many nice Tavernas 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.
