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 with mature gardens, 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.
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 have air conditioning and ample storage facilities, with access to the balcony that runs the entire length of the villa, providing wonderful sea views. The villa’s many communal and private spaces make it ideal for two families holidaying together.
Our ever helpful and fully bilingual property manager, Natushka provides a meet and greet service together with a complimentary welcome pack containing basic essentials. She and her husband Yianni are available to assist with any problems that might arise during your stay. The villa is serviced twice per week, bed linen. bath towels and pool towels are provided.
Villa Aurora has been rented independently for more than ten years and we are very pleased to have a number of 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".
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 pandemic either booked for the following year or were given a full refund.
The swimming pool, measuring 10m x 5m with a depth from 0.5m to 1.9m, is surrounded by a large patio for sunbathing. 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 season, when the air temperature is warm, an air source heat pump can be employed to take 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.
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. Insect screens have recently been fitted to this area to prevent uninvited guests gate-crashing your dinner parties.
Kitchen facilities include electric oven, ceramic hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge/freezer and drinks fridge. There is a separate dining room for cooler evenings. Many clients have hired the villa for special birthdays and anniversaries and have commented favourably on the tableware and furnishings.
A separate snug room includes a smart TV enabling you to enjoy your favourite subscription channels whilst away on holiday. There is a downstairs cloakroom and a utility room with washing machine. Outside 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 a track that meanders through the olive groves, to Avlaki Bay, where you can dine overlooking the waves. There are waters edge tavernas in Agios Stefanos, (Eucalyptus, Kaparelli, Galini and Kochili) and many more tavernas and bars in Kassiopi (Tavernaki, Petrino, The Wave Bar and Harbour Bar). Alternatively take a water taxi to Taverna Agni for a memorable evening. Local supermarkets are a five minutes 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 in Gerald Durrells books. Agios Spyridon, a slowly shelving sandy beach (ideal for children) is only a short drive along the North coast. Aqualand, a water theme park in the centre of the island, is a great day out for children and adults.
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 €75) where a local firm will be pleased to deliver your hire car.
There are scheduled and charter flights to Corfu leaving from various UK airports. There are many friendly boutique hotels in Corfu Old Town that provide an ideal way to extend your holiday by a day or two in order to appreciate the beautiful old town or match the sometimes rather demanding flight schedules. Try Hotel Bella Venezia, Siorra Vittoria or Cavalieri Hotel.
