This simply-styled cottage, with a pretty garden and good size pool is an excellent choice for beach-lovers and pool-lovers alike. Being on the lane leading to the impressive Almiros Beach on Corfu's north coast means it is only a few minutes' walk from one of the most expansive unspoilt swathes of appealing coastline on the island; eight kilometres long with gently shelving crystal clear waters, sand dunes and Blue Flag status for cleanliness and water quality, Almiros is a naturally untamed area enriched by a subtle husbandry with a selection of small tavernas, bars and a couple of mini-markets dotted alongside.
Mature shrubs, a large palm tree and purple bougainvillea in the property's colourful garden enhance privacy. The pool and terrace are enclosed by lawns on which to spread out while the front patio, opening from the kitchen, is conveniently sited for outdoor breakfasts. There is also a further pergola-shaded terrace for an al fresco lunch or dinner.
Inside, the kitchen/diner leads into the sitting room with modern fresh décor while the twin and double bedrooms, quietly located, share a rear patio.
At the front of the beach road is an elegant (adult only) hotel on the left with open fields on the right, then a delicious sensation of freedom and calmness is experienced as the extent of the beach reveals itself. The dramatic rolling hills of Albania can be seen across the sea directly opposite.
A seven kilometre coastal path stretches all the way from Roda to Acharavi and on to Almiros, passing a salt lake and nature reserve before ending at Agios Spyridon and the Bay of Molos.
This area of north Corfu, noted in particular for its many butterflies and wild flowers, is always popular with nature lovers. Behind the hamlet, there is a small freshwater lake with local wildlife as well as some smaller, even more laid back, beaches. Just a ten minute drive away Acharavi and Kassiopi are both lively spots with excellent amenitiies and, of course, Corfu Town with its unique architecture and ambience must not be overlooked.
Please note: Almiros Beach guests have use of the neighbouring tennis courts belonging to the (adult only) hotel.
