Just a fifteen-minute drive from Roda and Acharavi, this impressive villa nestles in breath taking countryside on a hilltop above the village, affording it magical views over the valley, stunning olive groves and Albania over the Ionian Sea in the distance. Built on a raised level to take full advantage of its incredible panoramas and with large paved terraces and lawns running around it, the house is finished in sophisticated up-to-date fashion with shiny tiled floors, stylish furnishings and a highly functional modern kitchen. An air of sunny elegance dominates throughout the property and to complete the interior comforts, three of the lovely bedrooms have their own en-suite bathrooms.

The Corfu Club is a beautiful course that has been praised by many as one of golf's best kept secrets in Europe. It was designed by the famous Swiss based architect, Donald Harradine and he has blended the natural resources of the lovely Ropa Valley including the river of Nafsika (Odyseus was rescued by Princess Nafsika at its exit on Ermones beach), with man made hazards to make the course a good but fair test. It is as enjoyable for the scratch player as it is for the long handicap one.The treelined fairways and the sandtraps combine with the several lakes and meandering streams, to make an attractive picture against a backcloth of high hills. A magical place full of animals and birds (kingfishers, herons, otters, fish). The course has been recently renovated, with major work carried out on the bunkers and an upgrade to the irrigation system, therefore keeping the course in perfect condition at all times. Special interest holidays The area is very popular with hikers and mountain bikers due to the hilly nature of the terrain. Horse riding can also be arranged locally. Dinghy and cruiser sailing are available locally including skippered boats. The Ionian Islands are unique for the nature of the coastline and ideal for beginners due to the light winds in the summer season.

A guest's comment “If your idea of holiday heaven is a large immaculate 5 star villa on a secluded hillside in North Corfu then villa Gina is for you, my wife and 4 guests spent an amazing 10 days, given the choice we wouldn't have left!The key elements for us were the quality of finish and attention to detail, nothing has been overlooked from the air con in the bedrooms with quality beds to the infinity pool and loungers, although the property has no neighbors' and isn't overlooked its just 15 minutes drive from some fantastic beaches so you get the best of every world.My wife and I have rented many property's around the Med and can honestly say this is the best to date we would have no hesitation in recommending it and will definitely be returning.” Mick S.Save on your mobile phone bill whist in Greece.

About the neighbourhood
Corfu has figured in our consciousness since Edward Lear visited and painted while it was a British possession from 1814 to 1864. The Durrell brothers (and Henry Miller) lodged it even more firmly in the Anglo-Saxon psyche with their late-1930s sojourns, and subsequent rhapsodising in print. Today the island has a somewhat chequered reputation, due in part to its associations with Peter Mandelson/Nat Rothschild (habitués of the north-east coast, popularly dubbed “Kensington on Sea”) but also the notoriously downmarket excesses of Kávos in the south. Yet there is plenty in between for the rest of us, on one of the greenest of the Greek islands – thanks to intermittent but torrential rains from September to May, and the thousands of olive trees that carpet the land­scape. It is also, pe...
