Villa Location
If you like to spend time at the beach on holiday, Villa Barbaro is ideal. The house sits right on Avlaki Beach, with an excellent taverna next door, and a second taverna a little further along the seafront - the perfect setting for a relaxing getaway! A second picturesque beach is 5 minutes' drive along the coast at Coyevinas and the nearest supermarket can be found in the neighbouring resort of Kassiopi, a short drive in the other direction.

Location features

Local markets and shopping

The nearest mini market or supermarket is in Kassiopi, around 10 minutes' drive along the coast. The island's only market is in Corfu Town which is around an hour away by car, but still well-worth the journey. The stalls sell everything from clothes and shoes to fresh food, plus, along the cobbled streets are several shops selling traditional local gifts as well as larger high street brands.


Bars and restaurants

Next door to Villa Barbaro is a lovely traditional Greek taverna, with seating outside facing the beach. A second taverna is just along the seafront. If you fancy venturing a little further, the next resort along the coast, Kassiopi, has many bars and restaurants - traditional and modern - around its central harbour. The remains of Kassiopi Castle overlook the waterfront, which are lit up at night for a lovely atmosphere as you dine.


Beaches

Avlaki Beach is right on your doorstep and, although it's pebbly, it's still ideal for sunbathing and swimming. The beach is framed on either side by the surrounding hills and the water is so blue - don't forget your camera! A 5 minute drive around the coast will bring you to Coyevinas Beach, which is smaller and has no facilities but is still ideal for swimming or a picnic!


Family fun

Avlaki Beach is perfect for children to paddle or snorkel. There is also a waterpark in Acharavi, around 20 minutes' drive further along the coast, or the island's largest waterpark - Aqualand - is an hour south, towards Corfu Town.


Places of interest

The neighbouring resort of Kassiopi is well worth a visit. This quaint harbourside village has a good choice of both modern and traditional restaurants, gift shops and Greek bars by the waterfront. Further afield you can enjoy the stunning scenery from Paleokastritsa or Mount Pantokrator, or why not explore the inland village of Old Perithia? Once abandoned, the village has now been brought back to life with traditional tavernas catering for summer visitors. And no visit to Corfu would be complete without visiting Corfu Town!


Golf

The island's only golf course is around an hours' drive south, near the town of Ermones.


Other activities

At the far end of Avlaki Beach is a sailing school where dinghies and windsurfing equipment can be hired. Hiring your own motorboat or joining a boating excursion are fun and popular ways of seeing the other resorts along this area of coast, as well as some of the hidden beaches only accessible from the sea. If you prefer to keep your feet on dry land, walking or hiking around the resort is a great way to see more of the beautiful countryside scenery.


Remember…

Every villa comes with its own manual, complete with details of the best restaurants, taxis, local amenities and activities. And of course, our reps are on hand to make sure you love your holiday more. If you need any advice or tips on the local area, they will be more than happy to help.

Activities and things to do
Activity
Windsurfing
Though not known particularly for its windsurfing Corfu none the less has two good windsurfing schools. One is in the south of the island and the other is on Avlaki beach in the North.

Windsurfing is something all the family can enjoy, either out at sea or from the comfort of a sunbed on the beach! A range of boards and lessons from qualified instructors are available, if required

Activity
Self drive boat hire
The Corfu is an ideal location to hire a small boat and skipper yourself and family for the day to explore the many coves and beaches. There are a number of resorts where boats of several different sizes can be hired locally. Usually there are boats with tiller steering and ones with steering wheels. Most boats have a sun canopy. All boats have life vests and are fully prepared. You do not need a speedboat licence to drive a boat with an engine smaller than 25hp. Instruction can be given if required.
Activity
Horse riding
If you prefer not to do all the work what better way to enjoy the scenery and tone up the muscles a bit than by horse. There are several horse riding schools around the island.

There are two very nice ones: One at Avlaki where Alison takes you on a ride through the Eremitis peninsular with its lovely sea views, another is in Kato Korakiana where Sally takes lovely rides through the countryside from her well-tended stables.


Activity
Kassiopi
There is plenty to keep you occupied in and around the village if you can tear yourselves away from the private pool in your very own villa. Right outside your villa there are miles of gorgeous, unspoilt countryside to explore on foot or horseback. But if you fancy seeing more of the island on your holiday, Kassiopi makes a great base. Achavari, the main town in this area is nearby along the picturesque coastal road and worth visiting for its splendid 2 mile crescent of clean sandy beach, with warm shallow water perfect for playing and paddling.
Activity
Waterparks
There are 2 waterparks on the Island: Hydropolis on the outskirts of Acharavi on the north coast, and the larger Aqualand in Ag Ioannis, just outside Corfu Town. Both parks have a good selection of slides, pools and various refreshments available. Aqualand is by far the largest of the waterparks and in fact one of the largest waterparks in Europe with a big selection of rides and activities for all ages (including a very sedate 'lazy river' for older party members!) It has a couple of cafes and snack bars, a small shopping area and plenty of sun loungers and is open from 9am-8pm daily all Summer.
