Overview

Greece Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom self catering cottage on the seafront

In Greek Agni means “pure” and this describes the bay perfectly. Those familiar with north east Corfu will know that Agni is one of the island’s prettiest bays.

Individual houses directly on the beach are rare enough, but to find one in Agni is the icing on the cake! Accommodation is very limited here, and hence highly sought after, which is why we are delighted to offer this detached stone-built house. A wonderful spot for a romantic getaway, where you can sit on your terrace at night and watch the moon reflect on the water. A great place for families, located on the beach making it easy to keep an eye on the youngsters. Local materials focus in this cottage, stone and timber are used throughout with floors that are tiled or wood. It is both well maintained and immaculately clean. The ground floor has a well-equipped kitchen/diner (microwave and cooker) opening onto a shaded sea-facing terrace. The bathroom is also located on this floor. There is a sofa bed in the dining area that can accommodate 1 child.

On the first floor are 2 bedrooms, one twin and one double, both air-conditioned. The double bedroom has a private balcony with wonderful views over the sea to Albania. Beach towels are provided as well as free sunbeds on the beach for Olga cottage guests.

Free WIFI internet available in the Agni snack bar nearby but can also be easily accessed from the downstairs area of the cottage as well. Car or motor boat hire is recommended.

Great cottage in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our second visit to Olga Cottage and we are already looking to book for next year, which says it all!

The cottage is located in the picturesque Agni bay. The cottage has 2 bedrooms, a bathroom (with a bath and shower) and a lounge/kitchen. The bedrooms have air conditioning (which is excellent) and the kitchen is well equipped. Towels and beach towels are provided and the cleaners came in regularly.

Outside you have a lovely covered seating area and there is a balcony from the main bedroom. There are 4 sunbeds solely for people staying at the cottage so no fighting for beds!

The cottage is right on the seafront and you wake up to the relaxing sound of the sea lapping! Agni is a quiet bay with 3 tavernas and a snack bar, most people arrive by boat which is great to watch. The taverna next door to the cottage, Taverna Nikolas, does a fantastic Greek night. We had some great breakfasts a Korinas snack bar.

You begin to feel like a celebrity as everyone comments on how lovely the cottage is and wants to know how you booked it!

The owners of the cottage are really friendly and are available to help with any problems.

I cannot recommend a stay at this cottage highly enough. If you want fabulous views in a tranquil area this is the place to stay!

Superb views and tavernas on your doorstep.

  • 4 of 5

Agni Bay is a busy cove consisting of 3 tavernas a snack bar,and a couple of holiday homes.

The cottage is situated very close to the sea sandwiched between the amazing Nickolas Taverna and a snack bar.This does mean that it is not a peaceful location as both places play music throughout the day.

The cottage is very clean although very tired and could do with a bit of updating.The main bedroom is lovely with high ceilings and access to the balcony with views across the sea to Albania.It was lovely to fall asleep to the sound of the waves just outside your door.

Car hire is essential as surrounding areas are very steep to walk.There are no supplies of anything at the cottace so you need to take everything including dishcloths, washing up liquid etc.Pots pans etc are tatty and we chose not to use them but eat out instead.

A short walk leads to a quiet cove which we appreciated paticularly as the snackbar plays europop all day which I found irritating.

Thursday night is Greek night in the Taverna nextdoor.Great fun and value.

There is boat hire on the beach.The beach is pebbly and the sea becomes deep quite quickly,so not great for children.

There is a path that crosses in front of the cottage to the taverna which does mean that it is not very private.

Altogether the bay and views are beautiful, the tavernas excellent and the proximity to the sea is wonderful.Don't expect peace and quiet or privacy and would not recommend for children.

If I go back to Corfu whichever area I will certainly go back to Nicholas taverna which is the friendliest place and made are holiday!

We loved every minute of it. A great bay with superb restaurants. the house is very comfortable and well equipped. The views from the balcony were lovely and a great place to watch the boats. Perfect place for a weeks holiday.

Fabulous and fun little cottage

  • 5 of 5

What a gorgeous little cottage positioned in the best spot on Agni beach. We have 3 children (8,6 and 5) and we all absolutely fell in love with it.

The cottage exceeded our expectations. We had had the previous week in a private villa and paid a small fortune for it. Because Olga Cottage was a fraction of the price we assumed it would be pretty basic. But the living area was comfortable and well equipped and the master bedroom in particular was heavenly with it's high ceiling and lovely balcony over the bay. The only negative would be to say the pillows were hard and the blankets quite old and scratchy. It would be lovely to see some nice soft blankets there next year when we are due to stay again!

The kids stayed up late and played on the beach while we dined in peace. And we were lucky that they slept in until 10am the following morning so it suited us well. As we slept with the windows closed with the aircon on we never heard any noise from outside.

The owners were delightful and so friendly and charming. In summary.... we miss it already and would most definitely recommend the property to friends and family. We can't wait until next year!

Olga's Cottage Agni

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a beach based holiday, then this is it!

It was fantastic to wake up to the sound of the sea every morning. The location of the cottage is hard to beat.

The accomodation was as described, very clean and comfortable. The cleaning services were excellent. There was plenty of crockery and cutlery. It might be worth noting that beach towels were provided, which could save a bit of space in your suitcase.

We were a little worried about parking our car but were given a space in a locked up area, so no problem at all.

Sunloungers and umbrellas were also provided but we didn't use them as they are on the entrance path to one of the tavernas.

The owners were very frendly and offered help to us at any time if we needed it.

This holiday would be hard to match, which is why we'll be returning next year.

Perfect setting

  • 5 of 5

My family (me, husband, two girls aged 17 and 20) absolutely fell in love with Olga Cottage and Agni. It is the perfect setting, two steps from the clear blue sea and the friendliest Taverna in Greece.

A warm welcome at the airport, help with the car hire, another friendly welcome on arrival in Agni and a spotlessly clean villa started us off well. Olga Cottage has amazing views, high ceilinged and airy bedrooms (particularly main bedroom), comfy beds, lovely outside area to sit and eat, plenty of room downstairs and enough equipment in the kitchen to cater independently if you need to. We largely ate at the cafe or at the Taverna next door - both of whom could not be more welcoming.

Agni beach is beautiful - not overcrowded in any way, clean and lovely warm sea with walks/swim over to the next door beach if you fancy it. Sun beds free to those living at the Cottage. For people watchers it is also fun as boats of all shapes and sizes come and go during the day, although it is wonderfully peaceful first thing in the morning.

We couldn't recommend it more highly - particularly if you enjoy being a bit of a celebrity as this villa does attract attention from visitors to the Taverna who can't quite believe that such a cute house in such a perfect setting is actually available to rent!

Agni
Car: recommended

In Greek Agni means “pure” and this describes the bay perfectly. It is not a 'resort' as there are just three taverna, each with their own jetty for mooring. There is also a cafe/snack bar. Yachts, large motor cruisers and small hired boats often frequent the bay as the culinary delights of the tavernas are famous. The bay can also be accessed via the narrow road and there is a public car park. Individual houses directly on the beach are rare enough, but to find one in Agni is the icing on the cake! Those who are familiar with north-east Corfu will know that Agni is one of the island’s prettiest bays. The beach here is white-pebble shelving into the bluest of seas. Boat hire, which we can arrange for you, is highly recommended– this part of the coastline is ideal for exploration by sea. This is the perfect summer holiday location.

Other Activities: Very popular with artists due to scenic location with astonishing views. Motor boat hire available
