A gnarled olive tree stands guard over Nitsa’s pool terrace against a shimmering backdrop of azure Ionian Sea, epitomising the very essence of Greece. In a perfect spot just 500m above little Skinos beach, Nitsa is in a prime location enjoying spectacular sea views of mountainous Albania across the entire Corfu Channel.
This panorama is equally visible from the smart decking surrounding the pool, where elegant sofas sit beneath a shaded pergola and offer the perfect setting from which to enjoy the stunning vistas. Watching the sunset from any viewpoint is a delight, particularly when accompanied by something chilled, whilst clever lighting turns the garden into an enchanting spot.
The barbecue creates a focus for al fresco dining, as tantalising aromas awaken appetites heightened by a day in the sun.
The cool contemporary interior is comfortable with a modern décor and well equipped kitchen. To the front, two twin and one double bedroom share a shaded balcony perfect for a holiday read (or forty winks!).
Nissaki is in one of the most desirable regions of Corfu. Its pleasant white pebble beach is lapped by transparent waters and nestles below verdant Mount Pantokrator.Just 500m below, an excellent local bakery, supermarket and little Kafenions are strung out along the coastal road whilst traditional tavernas enjoy great beachside settings. From here, head inland high into the fertile interior, where a wealth of olive, orange and lemon groves grow alongside cypress trees and the pungent aroma of wild herbs pervades.
Corfu Town is justifiably a world heritage site and well worth exploring. Within its fortified walls, precarious balconies overhang narrow alleyways of shiny cobbled stone that catch the early morning light, best appreciated whilst enjoying a coffee in one of the many cafes as the townspeople go about their business. Stroll around the arcaded Liston, where a row of shops has existed since Napoleonic times, or sip an aperitif in the main square and soak up the vibrant atmosphere of this unique Venetian-influenced capital.
Please note:* The pool can be heated at a cost of €120 per week paid directly to the housekeeper. At least one week's notice is required for the heating to be fully effective.
