The Ionian Islands region
The island of Corfu is located just off the West coast of Greece. It is the greenest of the Ionian Islands, and probably also the well known. The island enjoys a mild Mediterranean climate and offers a beguiling landscape of wild flowers, cypress trees, local vegetation and over 2 million olive trees.
Corfu is surrounded by a beautiful and varied coastline. It has the precise balance of long sandy beaches, pebble beaches, secluded shingle coves, some of which can only be reached by boat, and high cliffs which are the perfect resting point to take in some of the spectacular sunsets.
The island's old town, built largely by the Venetians during their rule in the 15th Century, with its stunning architecture is an attraction in itself. With it's esplanades and piazzas, it is a cosmopolitan place enjoyed by young and old alike.
In 2007 Corfu's old town was inscribed in UNESCO's World Heritage List.
The small fishing villages and beach-side tavernas offer a fine selection of traditional Greek cuisine to suit all tastes.
The island has something to offer to everybody from museums and monuments to night clubs, restaurants and walking/hiking trails.
Alex's house is ideally located in the center of Corfu, approx. 13 kms north west of Corfu town and only 3 Kilometers from the local village of Agios Ioannis. From here you are able to start all your excursions.
The most important is Corfu town with all its shops, museums, art galleries, Old and New Fortress.
Aqualand Waterpark Sports and Leisure Center is only 2 km away on the far side of Ag. Ionians a must for families with children.
Beaches of East and West Coast are within 5 - 15 mins. drive away.
Pelekas and the "Kaiser´s Throne". Here you will find fantastic views and you will enjoy the most beautiful sunset.
Paleokastritsa with its monastry and boating facilities is a short drive north-west along the Ropa Valley road.
Achillion - the castle of Empress Elisabeth of Austria called "Sissi" with beautiful views across the island and impressive flower garden.
Ropa Valley Golf Club is only a 5 - 10 mins drive away.
Pony Trekking and Cycle Hire is also close by in Ag. Ioannis and Afra.
The beautiful Corfu Club course has been designed by the famous Swiss based architect, Donald Harradine and he has blended the natural resources of the lovely Ropa Valley with man-made hazards to make the course a good but fair test. It is as enjoyable for the scratch player as it is for the long handicap one.
A magical place full of animals and birds (kingfishers, herons, otters, fish). The course has been recently renovated, with major work carried out on the bunkers and an upgrade to the irrigation system, therefore keeping the course in perfect condition at all times.
From March to November and sometimes beyond, there is warm sunshine and blue skies in Corfu but even in high summer on the golf course there is almost always a cooling breeze blowing in from the sea. Golf is also played throughout the winter in Corfu, so anytime is golf time! There are three sets of tees thus providing enjoyment for all categories of players.
The turf is very good and easy to walk on and every hole on the course provides infinite variety - and its own problems. Corfu is a great golf course and its fame is spreading rapidly as golfers come from all over the world to test their skill at golf and to enjoy an island which offers spectacular scenery, fine hotels, good food and a warm welcome.
The course is open 7 days a week.
