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!
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
