Description

Nestled in mature olive groves above Avlaki Bay, with wonderful views over the headlands of north east Corfu, Villa Aurora provides the perfect setting for a relaxing family holiday. Set in an acre of grounds, Aurora offers exclusivity and seclusion, yet all essential holiday amenities are close by. Avlaki beach, with its crystal-clear waters and two excellent tavernas, is a short walk down an unmade track that winds through the olive groves. The waters edge tavernas of Agios Stefanos and the bustling harbour of Kassiopi are only a few minutes’ drive. The villa’s many communal and private spaces make it ideal for families holidaying together.

Aurora has two double and two twin bedrooms, each with en-suite bathrooms comprising wc and wash basin; three bathrooms include a shower. The master bedroom has ample space for a cot and a futon for younger children, enabling the villa to accommodate 8 adults and 2 young children. All bedrooms are fitted with air conditioning, and have vaulted ceilings and ample storage facilities. French doors lead from each bedroom to the balcony, which runs the entire length of the villa, providing wonderful sea views.

The swimming pool measures 10m x 5m with a depth from 0.5m to 1.9m, and is surrounded by a generous patio. Access to the pool can be restricted via a gate at the top of the stairs leading from the veranda to the pool. In the early and late seasons, an air source heat pump takes the chill off the pool water, raising it to a few degrees higher than it would otherwise be. Use of the system will be discussed prior to travel.

Our ever helpful and fully bilingual property manager, Natushka provides a meet and greet service together with a complimentary welcome pack containing essentials. She and her husband Yianni are available throughout your holiday, to assist with any problems that might arise during your stay. The villa is serviced twice weekly, bed linen, bath towels and pool towels are provided.

The property is registered for holiday rentals with the Greek National Tourist Office, EOT licence number 0829K10TK8213001. Last year, any of our guests that were unable to travel due to the Covid 19 restrictions were offered a full refund, though many chose to book for the following year. We are very pleased to have many regular clients who book from one year to the next and have written some generous reviews "more of a holiday home rather than a holiday let".

Aurora is contemporarily furnished and provides spacious, well-appointed accommodation. The open plan living space adjoins a fully equipped kitchen with island breakfast bar. French doors lead from the kitchen to an outdoor veranda with a comfortable seating area for relaxing and a large dining table. Retractable insect screens have recently been installed in this area to prevent uninvited flying guests gate-crashing your dinner parties.

Kitchen facilities include electric oven, ceramic hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge/freezer and drinks fridge. A separate snug room includes a smart TV enabling you to enjoy your favourite subscription channels whilst away on holiday. The dining room, with its circular marble table, is perfect for cooler evenings or late night card games. There is a ground floor cloakroom and a utility room with washing machine.

The gardens bordering the house and pool host a wide variety or Mediterranean plants. The poolside patio has sun beds and an umbrella for shade from the midday sun. A pergola, set slightly above the pool area, provides a quiet space if you need a bit of 'me time'. There is a BBQ to prepare a sumptuous supper and a table tennis table to work it off the following day.

The area is well served by excellent tavernas serving delicious, freshly cooked local dishes. Cavo Barbaro and Taverna Avlaki are just a 700m walk down an old olive grove track to Avlaki Bay, where you can dine overlooking the sea. There are water's edge tavernas in Agios Stefanos, (Eucalyptus, Kaparelli, Galini and Kochili) and many more tavernas and bars in Kassiopi (Tavernaki, Petrino, Little Italy, Vasilikos, The Wave Bar and Harbour Bar). Alternatively take a water taxi to Taverna Agni for a memorable evening. Local supermarkets are a five minute's drive - Yannis Market in Sinies provides online shopping and will deliver to the, villa.

Hiring a motor boat is a fun way to explore the idyllic coves that are the signature of North East Corfu’s beauty, made famous by Gerald Durrell's books. Stop for a swim off the beautiful beaches of the Eremitis headland, then head down to Kalami, Agni or Nissaki for lunch. Agios Spyridon, a slowly shelving sandy beach ideal for children, is only a short drive along the North coast. Look out for the 'Ice Dream' parlour just before the turn, a must for the return journey! Aqualand, a water theme park in the centre of the island, is a great day out for children and adults alike.

Although all amenities are close by, car hire is strongly recommended to get the most from your holiday. Most international firms are represented at Corfu Airport and the drive to the villa along the coast road takes about one hour. Alternatively, we can arrange a transfer by taxi to the villa (approximately €80) where a local firm will be pleased to deliver your hire car.

If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact us.

COVID 19 cancellation terms
If the Foreign & Commonwealth Office advises British nationals against all but essential travel to Corfu, or if the British or Greek authorities impose quarantine requirements affecting Corfu, you may cancel your booking and all sums paid will be refunded in full.

A wonderful place to stay

By Claire O'Donoghue on 22-Oct-2021

We have just got back from an excellent week in Corfu staying in Villa Aurora. Given the uncertainty and complications of Covid, Charles could not have been more helpful as we organised and planned for our stay, answering our many questions very promptly. He went above and beyond what we expected - for example we had been told before booking that the pool heating would be off as we were going late in the year, but because Greek covid rules tightened up in the week before we went, Charles organised for the heating to be put on as we may have needed to be in the villa and using the pool more. This thoughtfulness and desire for people to enjoy their holiday is reflected in every aspect of the villa which is very comfortable and incredibly well equipped. Cleaners came in twice while we were there and Natushka, the house manager could not have been more helpful. Charles gave us a lot of good suggestions of what to do before we left, and there were more ideas in the villa booklet. The location of the villa was excellent - right in the heart of some of the prettiest villages on Corfu, a short walk to the beach and an excellent taverna, but secluded with wonderful views. We were glad we had a car to explore and enjoy the area, and hired a boat from a village 5 minutes away for two of the days.

Wonderful stay

By Susan on 27-Sep-2021

We had such a great time at the villa! The location is fabulous - you can walk to Avlaki beach and it's only a short drive to San Stefano and Kassiopi. The house is really well equipped and comfortable and the pool is a fantastic size. The pool was plenty warm enough without heating for us in Sept/Oct. The whole area is simply gorgeous and the food was top notch at all the local restaurants. Charles was very helpful with info and we thoroughly recommend a stay.

A home from home - with bonus features!

By Phil Williams on 03-Sep-2021

We fell in love with Aurora 6 years ago, and we have been meaning to return ever since. Now in 2021, we feel the same way. Our first timer friends and family all said the same thing as we did as we walked around the property - "Wow!!" Aurora truly is a home from home - comfortable, spacious and well equipped, all with the bonus of its fabulous location. Of course, many have mentioned the wonderful views, the excellent pool, and the many tavernas within easy reach of the villa. I could add that the villa seems to be as well managed and maintained as before. The owner Charles has made some improvements since our first visit, such as protective gates at the top of the steps down to the pool and the staircase, and insect screens around the outside seating area. Charles is very approachable and fair. The coronavirus booking conditions and the reviews from previous guests affected by travel restrictions gave us confidence to book almost a year ago. The rental price for this substantial, high quality villa compares well with the prices I have seen quoted for cottages in the UK. The people of Corfu, and especially Avlaki and San Stefano were so welcoming and friendly. Come here, and you will have a comfortable, stress free and happy holiday - especially if you take the evening boat taxi to Taverna Agni at least once.
