Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 5
Simply delightful location; right on the beach. Varvara, with 2 bedrooms and a beach front terrace, offers a perfect setting for those looking for a quiet holiday where the beach is the focus. Set in the middle of Coyevinas Beach, a hidden gem away from the usual tourist trails, with rarely more than a few people visiting during the day. However there are tavernas and supermarkets within a short walk. (The nearest taverna is set just behind the beach and offers use of its swimming pool to clients.)
The Times Newspaper recently reported Varvara as their no 3 for the '20 Best Seaside Villas in Europe', saying:
"Step through the patio gate and you're on one of the most peaceful, uncommercial beaches in northeast Corfu. Simple but homely, Villa Varvara sleeps four and has an open-plan lounge/kitchen/dining area and a sea-facing veranda - a perfect spot for watching the sunset over the mainland. Take a walk to nearby Avlaki beach, where there's an excellent dinghy sailing school as well as horse-riding facilities. Or head to the bustling harbour town of Kassiopi, just a few minutes away."

The Ionian Islands region
Corfu is one of the most popular of the Ionian Islands. It is a very green island, literally covered in olive trees. The town of Corfu (or Kerkyra as it is locally known) impresses and charms the visitor with its two forts, narrow streets, tall houses, and Venetian-built Town Hall. Flooded with sights, Corfu is a small paradise on Earth, from breathtaking Paleokastritsa to Kanoni, from the Achillion to Pontikonissi. Beaches are plenty and range from soft sand to fine shingle - the crystal clear waters making snorkeling a delight. Corfu really does have something to offer all holiday tastes.
Varvara is located on Coyevinas beach. This completely uncommercial beach is a long sweeping bay between Avlaki and Kassiopi. There is one taverna set behind the beach (which also offers use of their swimming pool to clients). A short walk (300m) takes you to Michelangelo Village which is on the edge of Kassiopi. Here you will find more tavernas and 2 supermarkets. Keen walkers will enjoy the stroll to Kassiopi and Avlaki (via a quiet lane with no hills involved!)
Nearby Avlaki Beach is a beautiful sweeping bay with a gently sloping beach and fabulously clear turquoise waters . No wonder Avlaki is a favourite for the locals! The beach is fringed by just a few villas, two tavernas serving local food, and a small sailing school offering dinghy sailing and sail-boarding. Avlaki really is a Greek Island heaven.
