Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms,Lounge, Fully Fitted Kitchen,Shower Room, , Private Garden

Experience the real Corfu. Ideal for a couple or four friends looking for a quiet, relaxing holiday.

UNFORTUNATELY VILLA NIKOS IS NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN UNDER 13 YEARS.

Just yards from the sea and Astrakeri's sandy beach, Villa Nikos lets you experience the island as the Durrells knew it

Only a five minute drive from the resort of Roda with Acharavi and Sidari a little further. This idyllic hideaway is one of the island's best kept secrets.

Few tourists have discovered this tranquil spot looking out over the little harbour where the fishermen bring their daily catch up to the nearby "Three Brothers" Restaurant.

From the terrace of this Trip Advisor award winning restaurant you can enjoy the view across the sea to the mountains of Albania and savour the atmosphere and home cooked seafood and traditional Greek cuisine.

There are another ten beaches within a few minutes' drive along with horse riding, scuba diving and water sports if you should get tired of the peace and quiet among the olive groves.

The Villa itself, set in its own secluded garden, is nicely refurbished and quite charming enjoying lovely views of the harbour and Astrakeri beach.

The location is 24 miles from Corfu Airport and the journey takes approx 55 mins. We do recommend you hire a car as no direct bus route but there are local taxis .

Any medical assistance is supplied by a local GP based in Roda. There is also a fully equipped Medical Centre which is open 7days a week .

Further information :-

Situated in the extreme north of Corfu, and easy 55mins drive from the airport. The Villa boasts an unspoiled location just metres from the beach which looks out to the spectacular straits of Corfu and the mountains of Albania beyond.

The nearby resorts of Sidari and Acharavi both houses major supermarkets- Greek and Italian (The latter offering excellent wines at reasonable prices) these are no more than 10 mins journey by car. The closest resort of Roda which is a five minute drive and has an excellent mini market catering to most requirements .

There are three traditional tavernas close by offering excellent authentic fresh local fare. The Three Brothers Fish Tavana overlooks the tiny harbour. Grigori's Taverna looks out beyond the straits and gently instils a calming 'Greece in a Bottle 'atmosphere by virtue of its stunning location. Finally the Sunrise tavern, with a superb vista encompassing the whole of the nearby coastline.

Roda also enjoys two excellent eateries - The Drosia famous for its beautifully grilled lamb cutlets.

The Pixida Italian restaurant owned and run by the charming Salvatore and his wife who serve delicious Italian cuisine.

Should you wish to see a little more of the island, Corfu town itself will not disappoint. The Liston promenade with its arcaded Cafes. Delightful shops and boutiques selling Greek and international goods. Saint Spiridon Church - patron saint of the island.

The two Forts Old and New that guard the Town. Garitsa Bay with a long sweep of Top class Hotels and older residential properties whilst the Bay itself plays host to an astonishing armada of assorted private yachts. At the tail end of Garitsa enjoy a relaxing drink on the elegant Veranda of The Mon Repos Hotel which is a short walk from the estate of the same name where the Duke of Edinburgh was born.

Enjoy a wonderful lunch by the waters edge at The Nautilus Restaurant.

If a Fine dining experience is what would suit The Etrusco Restaurant at Kato Korakiana is open evenings from 2000hrs - Midnight. Booking is required as very popular.

Paleocastritsa (30min drive from Corfu Town) has long been

acclaimed as the jewel of the island and is indeed very pretty, the best way to see and appreciate the entire seven bay layout of this beautiful resort is probably from the village of Bella Vista high above

Paleocastritsa but easily reached by a good albeit windy Road. A trip to the Monastery where you can watch the Monks making their wine is also worth a visit.

Angelo Castro ( Castle of Angels) is home to a fortified position at the top of some 300 stone steps (shades of Mama Mia)this place is spectacular and has a lot of history attached to it, It was the site of the first Beacon to be lit when invading pirates, Turks and other foes were sighted in the Straights. One after another a chain of well positioned Beacons stretching as far as the island Capital were lit up within 20mins and the inhabitants of the town were aware of the threat and able to enter the shelter of the Forts with time to spare and prepare to repel the invaders.

Well appointed, well stocked and fabulous hosts

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many self catering places throughout Europe, but have never stayed in such a well 'kitted out' property. The beach (just a walk across the path) was great and the sea lovely to swim in and safe. The position offers a great base to visit the many delights of Corfu. The local taverna's are friendly offering great food at reasonable prices.

Above all our hosts, Maggie and Des, were friendly without being obtrusive, and had a wealth of local knowledge. Their animals were friendly and well behaved and such fun !

We will certainly try and visit again !

You have found a little gem, or two

  • 5 of 5

The villa is very tastefully decorated, has everything you need from playing cards to hair dryers to a fridge stocked with essential so you don’t have to dash straight out to find something to eat and drink. There is a large covered verrander at the back, we found it ideal for meals or just sitting reading, lovely gardens with sun loungers, not overlooked and very peacefully. You will need a car as shops are not within walking distant but you have two very good restaurants minutes stroll away. While the excellent beach, open the gate and you are virtually on it, is very shallow, great for swimming and not crowded.

The real gem for us however came in the form of Maggie and Des who look after the villa and live next door. They were fantastic, mine of information on where to go, eat or shop if you ask them, always there ready to help if needed and both with a good sense of humour. We really do want to return to see them and of course the villa, beach, etc in the not too distant future.

Perfect Villa; perfect hosts; perfect holiday

  • 5 of 5

The villa was everything we had hoped for, and more..... a fully equipped kitchen, beautiful garden with a variety of outdoor sitting and eating spaces, comfortable living room with TV and two beautifully fitted out bedrooms.

The owners live next door - and were 'visible enough' to be there when we needed them, but no more than that.

The beach - just across the road - must be one of the emptiest in Corfu, but is sandy, safe and has sun umbrellas and sun loungers.

We had a lovely relaxing holiday, and would recommend this villa to anyone who wants to 'get away from it all' - but with a bit of luxury

An absolute gem of a property in a perfect situation

  • 5 of 5

Our reason for choosing Villa Nikos was to have a relaxing week by the sea and it provided that and more. The beach is 3 minutes from the front door and there are two good Tavernas very close by (but not close enough to disturb you) serving seafood and traditional Greek dishes. If you wanted to stay put for a week, it would be very easy.

Maggie and Des provide excellent hospitality and when we arrived, there had already stocked the fridge and cupboards with essentials to get us through the first day

The accommodation has been kitted out to a very high standard and is very clean. We cannot recommend this place highly enough. The only downside was having to get back in to the car and head home at the end of our week.

A Jewel of Corfu

  • 5 of 5

Our second visit to the delightful island of Corfu, but this little hamlet with Villa Nikos nestled between two superb beaches is an absolute jewel of a location; even the weather could not spoil our magical holiday.

Maggie and Des take hospitality to a new dimension and we can't thank them enough for all the little touches that made our stay, home from home, much more than we could have wished for. There are two taverns offering great local cuisine.

As once famously said, we will be back!

Home from home

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful little house, ideal for 4 people with a lovely garden and terrace area. It is a stone's through from a fantastic beach and an amazing taverna. Astrakeri is very quiet but as long as you have a car, you can explore the area: Kassiopi, Avionas and the fortress of Angelocastro were our favourite destinations. Corfu town is also worth a day trip.Des and Maggie have done everything to make the house comfortable and cosy and they are always at hand with ideas for outings and any advice you could need. A super friendly couple and a great place to stay!
