Welcoming, well-proportioned and well-appointed with a lovely private pool (fenced on request for parental peace of mind), mature grounds and a beach, minimarket and tavernas all within walking distance, Petros is hugely appealing on so many levels.

Thoughtfully decorated, the spacious interior combines original features with contemporary styling, notable features of which include crisp white walls, wooden ceilings, wrought iron bedsteads, traditional prints and a gilded mirror with matching occasional table.

Larger parties or sharing families will appreciate the options and comfort created by having two independent sitting rooms (one on each floor), a formal dining room plus dining space in the kitchen and four air conditioned, en suite bedrooms, two up and two down.

Parents of younger children will value the dedicated children’s room conveniently accessed off the first floor twin bedroom, child gates at both the top and bottom of the staircase and the fence which is available on request for the pool area.

Overlooking grounds of lawn, palm and olive trees that encircles the appealing private pool, shaded terraces on both upper and lower levels stretch the width of the house, offering ample space in which to enjoy memorable family meals or simply retire with a cooling drink and a book at the hottest times of the day.

The pool itself is fringed by a wide, crazy-paved sun terrace, a shaded gazebo to the left, substantial brick barbecue to the right.

This is, without doubt, an enviable location in the much sought after north-east corner of the island where several of Corfu’s finest beaches are found. Votana Bay is only a 200m walk from the house and the beautiful beach of Avlaki, with two adjacent tavernas, just 1km further. Vibrant Kassiopi (1.9km) offers all amenities and a comprehensive choice of bars, tavernas and restaurants to suit all tastes and pockets.

Please note: While there are beds for 10 guests the property is suitable for a maximum of 8 adults. The low-level twin beds in the playroom are for children only.

Location of Petros

Locality

Great Things to Do Near Petros

Visit Kassiopi Fortress

Visit the ruins of the 13th century fortress which was destroyed during the Venetian invasion. Also visit the 15th century church of Panayia Kassiopitra.

Explore Corfu Town

See the palaces and Venetian fortresses and explore the old town that is home to the Greek Royal family during their annual vacation. Our very own Prince Philip was born right here, in Mon Repos palace.

Take Corfu Town's little train

For a fabulous view of all the best landmarks. A chance to rest your feet after a hard morning of sight-seeing! The little train leaves from the Liston every day, practically on the hour. This is great fun for all the family, and should not be missed.

Glass bottom boat

This is far more than just a trip on a glass bottom boat. As well as seeing the wonders of the Ionian sea, you'll also be taken to the amazing caves close to Ermones that can only be accessed from the sea, and then you will be left to enjoy the afternoon on Paradise beach - a huge expanse of white sand/shingle beach and aqua marine sea, no road, and only accessed by sea – truly amazing. These trips leave from the village of Paleokastritsa daily.

Take a trip to Agios Stefanos

Visit the pretty little fishing village set between Kalami and Kassiopi which is home to waterfront tavernas, mini-markets, shops and boat hire.

Go for lunch over on Vidos Island

Vidos Island used to house an ancient Venetian fortress, later turned into the Corfu ‘Alcatraz’! Now, it is simply a wonderfully tranquil spot to go for a walk, a quiet swim and a perfect setting for lunch – with the beautiful view of Corfu town and its fortresses in front of you. You catch the boats for Vidos in the car park at the old port, which you will find situated in front of the new fortress.

Go walking along the many trails

The coastal path from Agios Stefanos to Nissaki isparticularly enjoyable, passing through Kerasia, Kouloura and Kalami. Take your bathingcostume, some money for a delicious lunch - and a little bit extra in case you decide to take ataxi back home after over indulging on the wine!

Play a round of Golf!

This really is an excellent course, the oldest and currently one of only half a dozen in all of Greece! We have the British to thank for this, for it was created during the time of the British occupation of the Island. You'll find the golf course close to Ermones on the Ropa Valley.

For those who would like to know more about the local cuisine

Try bourdetto, one of the many local dishes created here on Corfu. Bourdetto is a spicy fish stew made from freshly caught scorpion fish. Be warned though, you have to eat this dish with your fingers and a lot of bread for the salsa (sauce), as it is a very bony fish, and is far too fiddly to try to eat with a knife and fork, so eat it the local way!.

Take a trip to the 3 Islands (Diapondia) off the north coast.

Erikousa, Mathraki and Othoniare 3 very quiet and completely un-commercial islands 11 nautical miles off the north coast ofCorfu. This caique trip, mostly departing from the resort of Sidari, takes about 1 hour and iswell worth the trip. You can have lunch on one of the Islands, and the photo opportunities onboth journeys are brilliant.

Visit the Achilleion Palace

Built in the late 19th century, for Sissy (Elisabeth), the empress of Austria. This beautiful palace has wonderful gardens, excellent views and is well worth a visit. You will find it well signposted, and is close to the village of Gastouri, heading south from Corfu town.

Visit another country - Albania!

There are organised day trips to this fascinating country. It is well worth the trip, to experience the culture of a country that is still completely un-commercialised. You can purchase tickets directly from the Ionian cruises office in the old harbour in Corfu town.

Visit Pontokinissi (Mouse Island)

What a lovely way to spend a half day, take a trip out to the Kanoni peninsula 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 Peninsular by a small causeway. It's from this small causeway that you take the regular boat crossing over to Pontikinissi- about a 5 minute boat trip away. Don't forget your swimming gear, as you can easily have a lovely swim here.

Small but magnificent -

The Archeological Museum,that is! Don't miss this little gem - you won't get museum indigestion here, it is quite small and very well laid-out, with a couple of real highlights which are as good as anything we've seen in the whole of Greece on many trips in the past. It is air-conditioned which makes it a lovely place on a very hot day - cool off as a culture vulture!
