An excellent choice for an extended-family or a group of friends Eleanna is situated just 3.3km from iconic San Stefanos, one of Corfu’s most sought-after destinations. Beaches and tavernas are all within easy distance while an excellent, well stocked mini-market for all holiday essentials is less than 100m away.

Spacious and well designed, there are two distinct parts to the property: a main house with an equitable distribution of five bedrooms and five bathrooms, an airy living area looking directly onto the pool plus a separate kitchen, dining area, small gym/exercise room and a sauna. Accessed from the side of the house you will find a completely self-contained studio which would be ideal for anyone seeking an added degree of privacy whilst remaining fully involved with holiday proceedings.

Décor throughout is uncluttered, bright and modern. Furnishings and fabrics are well-coordinated and blend harmoniously with the relaxing colour scheme of subtle cream/magnolia shades.

Considered one of Corfu’s most attractive enclaves, sleepy San Stefanos (3.2km) is a snapshot of Greece at its best; a little pebble beach, a minimarket, car hire, boat hire and several waterside tavernas all nestle around a scenic cove lapped by calm, translucent waters. No less attractive is neighbouring Kerasia (5km) which has a longer beach plus a very popular waterside taverna. A substantial selection of amenities including numerous local tavernas, cafes, supermarkets and several music/cocktail bars for a gently vibrant nightlife can be found at Kassiopi (4.5km).

This lovely corner of the island is also home to some exceptional scenery and a hugely attractive, indented coastline that boasts several of the island’s best beaches including Avlaki (3.6km), Kouloura (3.7km) and pretty Kalami (4.3km), once home, of course, to the celebrated Durrel family.

Great Things to Do Near Eleanna

A fun day out at Aqualand

Corfu Aqualand, near to the village of Agios Ioannis, is one of the largest water parks in Europe and features 51 slides, several pools, a lazy river and a wide variety of other water attractions. There’s something for all ages here and it is a great way to keep the whole family entertained.

Visit Pontokinissi (Mouse Island)

What a lovely way to spend a half day. Take a trip out to the Kanoni peninsula (literally at the end of the airport runway) and enjoy a coffee on the waterfront café there, next to the Vlahernon monastery, which is also an Island but has been connected to the Kanoni Peninsula by a small causeway. It’s from this small causeway that you take the regular boat crossing over to Pontokinissi – about a 5 minute boat trip away. A very tranquil spot, and don’t forget your swimming gear, as you can enjoy a lovely swim here. 

Corfu Town

The old town is an absolute gem. Visit the palaces, climb the fortresses (one old and one new!), explore the maze of cobbled streets and get a sense of its Venetian history, or simply sit in a courtyard, bedecked with flowers and people-watch.

Visit Mon Repos

A visit to Mon Repos is well worthwhile. A Royal mansion, with huge gardens, fountains, ancient trees and plants. Also famed for being the birthplace of Prince Philip. Mon Repos is only a 20 minute walk from the centre of the old town of Corfu, at the start of the Kanoni peninsula.

Sail on a glass bottom boat

Leaving Paleokastritsa daily over the main season, you'll see amazing undersea wonders, visit incredible caves close to Ermones that can only be accessed from the water, and enjoy an afternoon on Paradise Beach - a huge expanse of white sand/shingle beach and aquamarine sea also only accessible by boat.

Sailing at Avlaki

A perfectly positioned sailing school which offers lessons for beginners, or local knowledge for the more experienced, in one of the most stunning beaches of the island. There are a selection of toppers, lasers and windsurfers to choose from.

Snorkelling

Head to Kerasia beach where the water is sublimely clear and protective rocks create a perfect bay ideal for snorkelling.

Sunset supper!

For romantics and fish lovers alike. Some of the best fish restaurants can be found in San Stefanos, sitting at the waterside, sipping wine whilst watching the mountains of Albania in front of you changing colours with the sun going down, delicious! 

Angelocastro and Paleocastritsa

If you drive over to the west coast, you will find a complete contrast to the north-east coastline, with steep cliffs and spectacular scenery. Visit the Byzantine Castle of Angelocastro, built centuries ago to protect the island. The views are amazing and there is a little cafe at the bottom to refresh yourself before heading down to Paleocastritsa. Here there are two bays surrounded by cliffs where you can hire a pedalo to explore further. Visit the monastery set above the little village, or just sample one of the tavernas lining the little bays.

Agni by boat

Hire a small motor boat for the day to explore the beautiful coastline of the north-east corner of the island. You may like to plan a midday stop at the famous bay of Agni, which is well known for its three tavernas. Tether the boat at the jetty and enjoy a leisurely lunch beside the beach.

Explore the north-east coast by boat

Hire a boat for the day to explore the beautiful north-east coast, probably the prettiest coastline here on the island. You can stop off in any number of little coves that can only be discovered by sea, go for a swim or try some snorkelling, before heading to one of the bays (Agni, Kalami or San Stefanos) for a spot of lunch.

St Spiridon Lake's ornithological nature reserve

A lake and wetland reserve, of great interest to bird watchers in particular, but also to nature lovers in general and to walkers. It is the temporary or permanent habitat of more than 100 bird species, as well as many rare and beautiful plants. You will find this interesting lagoon and the beautiful beach and discreet coves nearby a short distance down from the main road linking Kassiopi with Acharavi.

The Big Red Bus

Drive down to Corfu Town and pick up the Big Red Bus from the port. This relatively new service is an open-topped, 'Hop On / Hop Off' bus that takes you on a guided tour all around Corfu Town and the outlying areas. It’s a great way to see and hear about the Town's history and highlights.
