More than just a rental property, Villa Saranda offers privacy and comfort with facilities over and above what would normally be expected in a holiday home. It is wonderfully located in a secluded one acre plot with 25 olive trees with private and direct access on foot to the unspoilt beach of Yialiskari - this is where Durrell’s My Family and Other Animals was filmed . The colour of the water is magical and the secluded beach offers privacy and wonderful bathing. A short 10 minute coastal walk takes you in one direction to lively Kalami with its range of bars, tavernas and watersports or in the opposite direction to the more peaceful Agni with its three famous beachside tavernas. There are several easily accessible supermarkets who will deliver to the property on request.
The house is very private with ample verandas, bbqs and shaded areas for al fresco dining, as well as an outside lounge area for evening sundowners. The heated pool has comfortable rattan sunloungers and umbrellas. Each of the three bedrooms has air conditioning , fitted wardrobes, comfortable beds and newly refurbished ensuite baths/showers. The high level of facilities includes WiFi, Sonos Music system, streamed TV with most English terrestrial channels including Netflix
The most memorable feature is the stunning and uninterrupted views across to Albania with the busy Corfu straits always active with yachts, ferries and fishing boats.
Saranda is unique and many of our guests have returned year after year to enjoy this special location in arguably one of the most beautiful parts of Greece.
Villa Saranda October 2019
By Diane Ramsay on 11-Oct-2019
Everyone in our family thought this the best holiday they have ever had. Even my wheelchair was not a problem, the villa was accessible inside and outside so I was included in all the fun. The villa was faultless, immaculately clean, stunning views and outdoor dining every night was glorious. We hired a boat to explore the coastline which I recommend to all, crystal clear water to swim, secluded beaches and welcoming tavernas to experience delicious Greek food .This place is as close to perfect as you can get . Peter who owns the villa is extremely helpful too. You would be mad not to book this one
A perfect holiday
By Kate Harris on 05-Aug-2019
We had an absolutely wonderful holiday at villa Saranda. As soon as I enquired about the property peter was fantastic. The communication was excellent and so detailed which meant we booked our boat hire and reservation at the White House before coming. The villa way exceeded our expectations and we could never tire of the breathtaking views. The villa was very well equipped and the photos don’t do it justice. The outside area is gorgeous and inside modern and beautiful. The walk back from the beach is a little hot! We couldn’t recommend the villa enough and hope to return again. The Harris family

The villa was amazing, beautiful location (5 minutes to a very very quiet beach), 15 minutes to Kalami where a great little supermarket is located (they will deliver to villa) and a fishmonger to get fresh fish caught that day, there are good restaurants there including the former Durrell's white house. Agni is a 10 minute walk. The villa has everything you need, fantastic pool, great facilities, amazing view, a great BBQ (we used every night) Peter is a great host and so is Armando (is local property manager) and his wife who cleans the property A fantastic family stay

This is a fabulous villa in every respect, great location, amazing view and wonderful facilities. We cant say enough lovely things about the villa. We will definitely be back.

This Villa is beautiful, it is extremely clean and well maintained. The heated pool was perfect and despite being pretty unlucky with the weather we still swam in the pool everyday, including in the rain. The beach just a short walk away was lovely, calm water and plenty of rocks to climb on. The communication and info pack provided by Peter before we went was great. I would 100% recommend this villa and we would love to return in the future.

A fantastic holiday
By Seon-Jeong on 11-Apr-2019
A fantastic holiday!
What a pleasant villa! Villa Saranda is very clean, really well-equipped with gorgeous views. We particularly enjoyed the outdoor heated swimming pool in this 'in-between' season where other touristic areas in Corfu were just slowly waking up and getting ready for the season. Finding restaurants that were open wasn't easy, but we were lucky enough to enjoy Greek foods at lovely authentic Greek restaurants not far from the villa. The owner, Peter was great, providing useful information even before our holiday started, promptly contacting his property manager, Armando, to sort out the heating problem (it was quite chilly in the evening, we got an extra electric heater). The maid service was blissful too. We didnt need anything extra during our stay, it's truly a 'home from home'. We'd like to visit Villa Saranda again.

Magnificent views, lovely heated pool, attentive owner
We had a very lovely stay at this special villa. The owner Peter was very efficient with his communication from the start. His users booklet, sent in advance was full of useful information and travel instructions. The villa was extremely well equipped and clean. The family enjoyed the heated oool, table tennis and BBQ. We loved the Sonos so we could play our own music in the villa or on the patio, and TV had many English speaking channels. We spent a lot of time at the nearby bay, about a 5 minute walk away, where the kids could jump in from the rocks as well as swim and sunbathe. Good selection of Tavernas and small supermarkets in walking distance. Perfect holiday.

10 glorious days at Villa Saranda
By Alan on 21-Aug-2018
Fabulous Villa with everything you could need or indeed wish for provided by Peter the owner! Great House keeping, Gardening and Pool staff (a credit to to you Peter). Stunning views and an amazing time had by all. Only minus was the mozzy's seemed to love us for the 1st few days (despite liberal application of Jungle Formula) but nothing much Peter can do about that.
Lage Lage Lage
By Hans on 21-Aug-2018
Damit fasst man schon das Wichtigste zusammen. Die sehr ruhige Lage, keine Nachbarn, keine Mopeds, keine Hunde weit und breit, das hatten wir schon anders. Die schöne Bucht gehört einem fast alleine, alles sauber, in wenigen Minuten Zu Fuß erreichbar. Das Haus selbst, sehr sauber, sehr gut ausgestattet, auch die Küche, die Betten, ein Traum. Super Service, 2x die Woche Wäschetausch, und Poolservice . Die Terrasse, ein Highlight, ebenso der Pool, obwohl die Poolheizung gerade defekt war, 22 Grad Wassertemperatur im April!. Jede Menge Liegen, Stühle, Schirme und Tische machen es leicht ein Plätzchen zum Relaxen zu finden Jeden Tag zieht mindestens ein Kreuzfahrtschiff vorbei, auf der Fahrt von Kerkyra nach Dubrovnik, über das Programm AIS im Computer sehr gut zu verfolgen, freies WLAN ist ja dabei. Da die meisten Gäste Engländer sind, ist auch das Fernsehprogramm englisch, wir hatten den Firestick von Amazon dabei und kamen dadurch sehr gut zurecht, sehr empfehlenswert. Tavernen gibt es zuhauf, die Beste ist das Eukalyptos in San Stefano sowohl im Angebot als auch in der Lage direkt am Wasser. Danke Peter Brown für das schöne Plätzchen, wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt
A perfect place with a spectacular view
By Jo P on 31-Jul-2018
We had a fantastic stay in Villa Saranda. Opted for a 10 night stay and we are so pleased that we did. The property is furnished to a very high standard, no expense spared. The views are to die for and the staff who come and maintain the property are professional, friendly and discreet. The private pool was well used by us all and as a first time abroad with our 2 year old son, there was lots to keep him entertained and it was a safe and clean environment. We would recommend this place to anyone. If you want to walk to a beach, agni or Kalami, you can do so in 15 mins (although the walk back is uphill and quite steep, but nothing a cold Corfu beer will not remedy). Most supermarkets, (we used Aphrodite's - their tzatziki is lovely!!) will deliver to the villa if you wanted to stay put and take in the view. Peter was very accommodating, informative and thorough. We look forward to returning to this slice of paradise in the near future. Many thanks.
The perfect place to relax
By Mary on 17-Jul-2018
The villa is a home from home with the benefit of a fabulous sea view. Very comfortable and well equipped and plenty of loungers, tables and chairs and parasols. We enjoy the walk to Agni or Kalami although slightly more strenuous on the way back. The nearest beach is just below the villa. We don’t feel a car is necessary, although handy for getting to areas further away..
By Barbara on 22-May-2018
es passte alles, das Haus war wundervoll, toll eingerichtet, wir haben uns von der ersten Minute wie zu Hause gefühlt, alles war da - wir waren und sind begeistert. Die Lage ist fantastisch, der Blick atemberaubend... tolle Orte in der Nähe. Der Eigentümer ist sehr freundlich und supergut organisiert. Ein perfekter Urlaub....
Greet location, fabulous views, lovely villa
By Anna on 28-Apr-2018
We stayed here for a week in April 2018 and were fortunate to have warm sunshine all week. The villa is lovely - well equipped and clean and the setting - a 180 view that photos can't do justice to - is amazing. We had a niggle that the pool heating didn't work the week we were there but parts were on order so hopefully a short term blip (or short dip - as they became!) Definitely recommended.
Amazing location, high quality villa
By Alison on 18-Apr-2018
An excellent villa, with a lovely pool area and outside space. Situated high above the local bay, beautiful coastal walks and excellent vista.
Ein Geschenk der Gotter
By Franz on 23-Nov-2017
Wer die Möglichkeit hat hier Zeit verbringen zu dürfen, mit dem meinen es die Götter wirklich besonders gut. Wir haben mit unseren drei Kinder hier Ende Oktober den zweiten Sommer des Jahres 2017 erleben dürfen. Die Lage des Hauses, seine Ausstattung und die netten Menschen Drumherum haben es zu einem wirklichen Erlebnis werden lassen. Der Pool ist spitze und die nahegelegenen Buchten mit den Tavernen und Geschäften sind ganz besonders schön. Das Haus wurde 2x die Woche aufgeräumt und gereinigt, ebenso der Pool. Wir hatten hier eine traumhafte Zeit und haben uns von Anfang an sehr Wohl gefühlt. Thank you Peter for your wonderful Villa!
By Louise on 09-Nov-2017
We loved the location of the property and the amazing views from the terrace. Everything we needed was supplied. The correspondence with Peter the Owner was great and the holiday pack he sent was invaluable. We tried most of the local restaurants and found Agni Bay a beautiful place to eat, we also hired a boat here for the day from Agni Bay and had a great day out. We hired a car at the airport which gave us the freedom to explore Corfu. The pool man was very chatty and helpful at answering the few questions we had.
Yialiskari heaven at Villa Saranda
By Isidora on 26-Oct-2017
We choose Villa Saranda because of it's surroudings Kalami,Agni and proximity to the pebble beach Yialiskari which is fantastic for snorkelling. Having 4 teenagers the WFI was essential and the heated pool with it's night lights was magical for all of us .The views are amazing ,we didn't want to move . We did venture into Kalami for basic food shopping and Agni for boat hire. We decided to splash on a private taxi boat ride into Corfu town which is a must , much shorter ride than car or bus ,as the old town was beautifull. We were here at the end of the season so you could see things were shutting down around us nevertheless we all had a marvellous time and would not change anything.Thank you Peter Brown for a very comprehensive information pack .

Sehr schöne Villa mit tollem Blick
By Cornelia on 20-Oct-2017
Wir, 2 Erwachsene und 2 Teenager, haben 2 Wochen in diesem schönen Ferienhaus verbracht und uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Jedes Zimmer hat ein eigenes Bad, die Küche ist mit allem ausgestattet, was man zum Kochen benötigt, doch das beste ist die überdachte Terrasse und der beheizte Pool. 6 Liegen und mehrere Sitzplätze stehen bereit. Es sind nur 5 min zu Fuß bis in eine kleine Bucht, die zum Baden und Schnorcheln einlädt. Nur einige Minuten weiter gibt es dann einige Tavernen und 2 kleine Supermärkte. 2 x pro Woche werden Handtücher und Bettwäsche gewechselt. Der Vermieter, Peter Brown, hat auf alle Fragen immer schnell geantwortet und hat uns im voraus viele nützliche Informationen geschickt. Wir können das Haus uneingeschränkt empfehlen.
By Duncan on 31-May-2017
Just returned from Villa Saranda what a place. The views for this property are something else. But even without the views the property has everything you need. The owners have thought of everything you need for a fantastic stay. Definitely hope to return to this villa one day Well done Peter (owner) Thanks for a great holiday Duncan & Steph
By Janine on 29-May-2017
We were so pleased to be back in Saranda from the moment we arrived. We had to stay in a different house in the bay last year because Saranda was all booked up and it just wasn't right somehow! Saranda has something that other places just do not have....everything is perfect and there is something quite magical about the whole setting. We have never been in May before and it was wonderful to see it in a different season. We didn't even mind that the sea was so much colder (invigorating you might say) and still swam at midnight a couple of times despite that, and loved having our way back up the slope lit by the fireflies...wonderful! Hiring a boat from George again provided a great day out and walking over to Koloura for lunch on a cloudy day was lovely. Agni and Toula's tavernas were lovely as ever and we all love the walk there and back for dinner. There is nowhere I prefer to swim than Yialiskari bay and we could stay for ever Janine

What a perfect holiday - perfect location, villa, beaches, restaurants. The hardest thing about the stay was coming home!
Magical, quiet, stunning views
By Ruth on 02-Oct-2016
We visited Villa Saranda in the October half term of 2012. My children and I often think about the fantastic holiday we had there. We lived an almost Robinson Crusoe existence on the beach at Yailiskari, making rafts out of found objects and a large rock became a stage for lots of performances. It really does feel like a private beach to totally relax on! The villa itself was a wonderful retreat with the most beautiful views of neighbouring mountains and "our" little beach. We didn't have a car but there are some wonderful walks along the coastline with many quiet, relaxed tavernas. If you are looking for a truly relaxing holiday then this is it!
By Kate on 20-Jul-2016
From the moment we entered the villa we felt right at home. The views are truly amazing - out of this world. The location is perfect. Communication with Peter the owner was excellent - we could not have asked for more. Our special thanks must go to Dawn a lovely lady who acted over and above her duties and saved the day in an airport dash to return our house keys! Dawn you are a star. Thank you for a truly wonderful holiday.
Stunning Villa in a perfect location
By Merilee on 14-Jun-2016
Villa Saranda is a beautifully finished 3 bedroom villa, with. A real home from home feel. I spent a weekend with my girlfriends here to celebrate a birthday and could not have asked for more! From lounging by the pool, soaking up the spectacular view, to exploring the tavernas on foot. Both Kalami and Agni are within walking distance, and you are rewarded by great food, wine and atmosphere in either location. We hired a boat and explored the coastline and took many photos of Saranda by sea. The little Yalaskari bay beneath the villa is gorgeous and was great for a dip! It felt like our own private beach. The villa is well equipped, with all you would expect and more, and is by far the most luxurious and comfortable villa I've had the pleasure of staying in. I would certainly book again with friends and family, the only problem is...book early as its very popular and rightly so! Thank you for making my Birthday holiday so special.
Absolutely stunning villa and view
By Anna on 16-Apr-2016
Wow! I can't recommend Saranda highly enough. Excellent communication from the owner before, during and after. Idyllic setting and beautiful, clean, spacious villa. Simply stunning. All the bedrooms were en-suite. Books, game and wifi. The owners have thought of everything. The pool was the perfect size and the heating and lighting meant that we were using it right through to the evening. A lovely walk down to the peaceful little bay and a little further in either direction to beautiful Agni Bay and Kalami. Roger and dawn were both attentive and helpful. Thank you for a fabulous holiday. We hope to visit again.
Villa Saranda; perfect location
By Janine on 16-Sep-2015
We have been to Villa Saranda four times now. It was perfect as ever! All of our “kids” (aged 19 and up) got out to Corfu at various times but very easy to do pick ups and drop offs at the airport and we all had a wonderful relaxing time. The weather was gloriously hot...mid thirties all except one thunderstormy day and I still managed my daily swim to Agni and back even that day. Wakeboarding for our oldest was great in Kalami and the usual lovely places to eat so all perfect. The location is so perfect; enough exercise getting up the slope back to the villa and we all love the path to Agni for dinner...would be no good if you had over-imbibed as you could certainly end up in the water unintentionally but we love the fact that it is all so natural. All of us relax at Saranda...lovely environment and the views from all over the property are so wonderful. We all feel completely at home here and everything we need is available in the property. We would move in tomorrow if we could get away with it. Yialiskari is a special place; we dread the thought of any kind of development taking over as it is perfect as it is We will return (and we are not, by nature, returners!) Thank you once again Janine
