The Ionian Islands region
The beautiful island of Corfu, with its rich cultural heritage, has been much loved by British visitors for many years. The influence of Venetian, French and British rulers is reflected most strongly in Corfu Town, which was designated a UNESCO heritage site in 2007. Much of the north of the island has remained relatively untouched by tourism, and the traditional way of life can be found in quaint villages, where the day-to-day routine has remained unchanged. There are glorious stretches of sandy beaches on the north and west coasts, and pretty pebble/shingle coves with clear turquoise water on the north-east coast.
About Yialiskari Bay: The beauty and tranquillity of this glorious coastline are renowned amongst those who love Greece, and the opportunity to stay in this part of the island is rather special. This idyllic unspoilt cove, with crystal clear waters, lies between Kalami and Agni. Lush olive groves sweep up to the small village of Gimari, which has a bakery. Agni, with its selection of waterside tavernas offering locally caught fish and traditional cuisine, is within walking distance from Villa Elia along a rough track. The resort of Kalami - famed for 'The White House' where Lawrence Durrell lived and wrote his books - is within easy reach by car or boat (boat hire available from Yialiskari Bay).
