Set in the spacious grounds of a former olive-oil press, with its grove of venerable olive trees, the traditional Aphrodite villas -an exquisite combination of simplicity, harmony and sophistication - have been faithfully maintained to provide you with an exclusive taste of the comfort and luxury of the life-style of Kerkyra (=Corfu ).
Ideally located in the small locality of Agia Pelagia in the south East Coast of the Greek island of Corfu in the Ionian sea between Greece & Italy.
Step outside, and an exquisite limpid pebble beach lies at the foot of the main Beach Villa, its crystal-clear waters beckoning you to dip in. Or dive in from the swimming ladder at the end of the jetty. Don't forget the outdoor swimming pool for family and midnight bathing! Those of you with a taste for water-sports may hire a motor dinghy for water-skiing practice (for licensed pilots).

There is something textured, something different about Corfu that sets it apart. Maybe it's as simple as the fact that the island -hanging off the northwest coast of Greece and within a heartbeat of Albania- has been occupied by so many cultures: the Byzantines, the Venetians, the French, the Russians, the British. It wasn't until 1864 that Greece annexed Corfu, the best known of the seven Ionian Islands.
Throughout its history, Corfu has been an island power. Its earliest colonists came from Corinth, and Corfu soon became quite competitive; the in 664 B.C., first recorded naval battle in Greek history occurred between fleets of the two. The rivalry, some 200 years later, was an igniter of the Peloponnesian War. For 400 years between the 14th and 18th centuries, Corfu, under serious threat from Turks and pirates, was protected by the Venetian Republic. That republic disintegrated, and during the Napoleonic wars, Corfu and other Ionian islands were briefly part of the French empire. After that? It was Great Britain (the island became the seat of the British High Commissioner); after withdrawing in 1864, the Ionians then joined the Greek kingdom.
