Surrounded by the blue waters of the Ionian Sea, Corfu is located in the western part of Greece. This enchanting city has a picturesque terrain densely covered with cypress trees and olive groves throughout the city. Lined by beaches with shingle coves, Corfu is home to several museums, Byzantine churches, impressive Venetian fortresses and vibrant resorts spread around the island.
The City of Corfu has some of the most beautiful beaches in the Ionian Islands and in the world. Glyfada is a popular beach among tourists and is located just west of Corfu’s capital. Impressive rock formations and tree-covered cliffs complement its natural beauty of the along the waters. As with many of Corfu’s beaches, sun beds with umbrellas, water sports, shopping, restaurants and a wide range of accommodations are offered along the beach. Most of the beaches in Corfu have been developed into these types of resort-style areas.
These resort-style areas feature a wide array of gorgeous villas for a perfect Corfu villa holiday. Nestled in hills, many of the villas are adorned with the traditional corfiot architecture and offer a panoramic vista of Corfu’s unspoiled landscape. Staying in a villa is a different experience compared to lodging in a hotel. Instead of the sterile environment of a hotel, villas offer a private atmosphere of warmth and freedom. You can choose to have breakfast in your pajamas and choose where you’d like to have your dinner served. Your Corfu villa with private pool can be enjoyed at any time. Take a dip in the cool waters of the pool or relax and read a book in a comfortable lounge. The villa experience is much more intimate than staying at a hotel and you’ll feel the warmth of Greek tradition.
Staying in a Greek villa with a private pool enhances the comfort and pleasure of your stay. After a long stay at the beach, you’ll be able to take a refreshing dip in the cool waters to rejuvenate and plan your evening adventure. At your poolside, you can enjoy the fresh outdoors and take in the magnificent views of the mountains and blue seas. Having a private pool gives you the freedom and seclusion of a great retreat. It’s the perfect setting for that perfect Greece holiday.
