Peaceful, Private Villa set in Olive Groves
A peaceful, private villa set in olive groves.
Beautiful, large private villa with 4 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms situated on the stunning and exclusive N.E. coast of Corfu with it's crystal clear bays and exceptionally good waterside tavernas. This 10 mile stretch of coast from Nissaki to Kassiopi is the very best part of Corfu - sophisticated but unspoilt with guests returning year after year.
Annalena is set within 2 acres of olive, almond and cypress trees in the hills above Kouloura with countryside walking on the doorstep. These are the hillsides that Gerald Durrell explored and recorded in "My Family and Other Animals" and "The Durrells" - once you're off the beaten track little has changed with wild flowers, soaring eagles and wild tortoise.
The pretty bay at Kouloura is just over five minutes drive away and has a fantastic fish taverna. Enchanting bays such as Agni, San Stefanos and Keresia are within fifteen minutes drive, as is the bustling harbour village of Kassiopi with it's array of shops, bars and restaurants offering something for all ages.
Motor boat hire is available locally offering the opportunity to explore quiet beaches and rocky coves. Avlaki has an English run sailing and windsurfing school. PADI diving operates out of Nissaki and Kassiopi. Horse riding is available locally.
Corfu Town has UNESCO world heritage status and is well worth a visit for culture and great shopping. Day trips to Athens or Albania can be organised.

Inspiration on Corfu
We had seen pictures of the villa on the site, but these don't do justice to it. For the stunning location, the beautifull architecture and attention to detail of the inside, only the highest rating is appropriate. The villa and surroundings are inspirational (for a hobby painter like myself and the family) and offers full privacy due to it's secluded elevated location. It felt really being away from it all. Janine gave us lots of insider travel tips beforehand, so we had a lot of fun prior to leaving, but a week was not enough to enjoy both the villa and Corfu.”
Say Corfu and I say....
Janine is a most gracious hostess. The property is lovely and the accommodations most ample and comfortable. For us, it's not quite a five star, more like 41/2 because Annalena is up a winding road, which for us, made it more difficult to run "in and out". (Do note that in one week, we drove over 800k's) Having said that, I'd recommend Annalena because in Corfu, you can find Very Good seafood, for us, especially down south, that's where we rank the seafood 5*. and great shopping in the town of Corfu for great handmade Greek items that make special gifts for family and friends, our boutique shops we found were exceptional! And yes, explore, it's safe and fun! Greg Lau ”
Our stay at Annalena was fantastic. The setting of the villa is just amazing with views out over Corfu and Albania. The villa has been beautifully restored with everything that you need for a great stay. Sitting in the infinity pool with those amazing views is one of the highlights. You will need a car but can highly recommend this property for a fantastic holiday.”
