Great Things to Do Near Fundana
Why not take a trip to this famous wine making estate on Corfu, for some wine tasting and a tour to see the process from the vine to the bottle.
Take Corfu Town's little train
For an alternative view of all the best landmarks (and a chance to rest your feet!) take the little road train which leaves hourly from the Liston every day. Great fun for all the family.
Visit the Achilleion Palace
One of the most famous royal mansions in Europe, some consider the Achilleion Palace to be the most important architectural landmark in Corfu. Built in 1890, entirely at the expense of the Empress Elisabeth of Austria (also known as Sisi), the palace acted as a quiet retreat for this controversial historical figure. You can stroll through the lovely gardens dedicated to her hero Achilles or simply enjoy the stunning architecture.
A fun day out at Aqualand
Corfu Aqualand, near to the village of Agios Ioannis, just 20 minutes from the house, 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.
Sail over to Paxos
Paxos is a tiny unspoilt idyllic island, full of olive trees and oozing with charm. There are just three coastal villages with Gaios being the most well-known. Well worth a day's visit.
Not far from the house is the Trailriders Horse Trekking Centre, located 2km south of the village of Ano Korakiana. Nestled in the foothills of the Pantokrator mountain range, the area is a haven for horseback trekking with miles of farm tracks shaded by olive trees and natural woodland. The stables cater for all abilities.
A day at the beach
Spend a day at Agios Spiridon beach, one of the quietest and most beautiful beaches on the northeast coast of Corfu. Long and sandy with crystal clear waters and lush greenery it is easy to see why Agios Spiridon has been awarded a Blue Flag. There are sunbeds, umbrellas and water sports facilities along with several restaurants.
Monastery of Paleokastritsa
On a hill above the beach of Paleokastritsa this Byzantine Monastery, built in 1225, is one of the oldest in Corfu. The views from the monastery are stunningly dramatic and beautiful, due partially to this, it is one of the most visited of the island’s religious sites. It is also steeped in history and has a small museum of icons, books, souvenirs and memorabilia. For anthropologists, there is also a magnificent skeleton of a whale.
The Canal d'Amour of Sidari
The name Canal d’Amour (channel of love) comes from an ancient legend that says if two persons swim here together they will fall in love. The rocks that compose the Canal d’Amour have been carved by the sea and wind over many centuries. Nature’s great masterpiece has the look of a lunar landscape, somewhat unique in the Mediterranean Sea. There is also a small beach here (arrive early to secure a spot).
Play a round of golf
You'll find the island's 18-hole golf course close to Ermones on the Ropa Valley (west of Corfu Town). This excellent course (one of only half a dozen in all of Greece!) was created by the British during their time of occupation.
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.
Take a trip down south to Alonaki beach where the water is sublimely clear and protective rocks create a perfect bay ideal for snorkelling.
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.
Head up to the northernmost point of the island to discover the unique natural landscape and tranquillity of Cape Drastis. These weirdy shaped cliffs with tiny sea caves and peculiar rock formations also have a few sandy strips in between them. When climate conditions allow you can visit by boat, however, you can also go by car and see it from above. Be aware that the winds can blow quite strongly here and it is therefore not recommended for young children.
Take a dip in the pool
Have fun in the enticing large pool, play games with the kids, enjoy a swim or just chill out on a lilo!
