Villa Kommeno Nero LocationVilla Kommeno Nero enjoys a very privileged location on the stunning Kommeno peninsula. It is just a 3 minute walk to the beach and also walking distance to restaurants. If you want to enjoy watersports, you can walk to another beach five minutes away.
The secluded Kommeno Bay is halfway up of Corfu’s eastern Ionian coast, just 20 minutes from the buzzy Corfu Town. The quiet private roads on the peninsula give you a feeling of remoteness though the bustling, vibrant beach bars of Dassia and Gouvia’s 18th century Venetian architecture are only 10 minutes away. It boasts some of the most coveted shoreline in Corfu.
Gouvia is a small, charming, former fishing village which is now a modern holiday resort with plenty of amenities. It enjoys a pretty pebble beach and a stunning marina. There are many atmospheric restaurants, bars and cafes along the main street of the village. Its 18th century shipyard is still remarkably intact. The views from Gouvia are really stunning with the sparkling Ionian Sea and Corfu Town on the horizon. If you travel a little further, you can enjoy a family outing to Aqualand, the massive water park in the middle of Corfu. You can also visit the famous Durrell White House in Kalami and the very charming Kouloura Bay.
Corfu is one of the most beautiful, lush green islands of Greece. With countless beaches, stunning scenery stretching from the crystal clear dazzling sea to the mountains, it is a dream destination. Together with fantastic cuisine, excellent shopping and a historic main town brimming with Venetian architecture and charm, it has something for everyone.
The beautiful, atmospheric resort of Kassiopi is located in the lively north eastern corner of Corfu. With the dramatic Mount Pantokrator overlooking the resort and with a stunning harbour, this once quiet fishing village is very popular and very attractive. It boasts charming narrow streets overlooked by the ruins of an ancient Byzantine castle and breathtaking views out to sea towards the Albanian coast. There is a gorgeous walk you can take around the headland.
Corfu Town or Kerkyra as it is otherwise known, is one of the most beautiful, graceful and elegant towns in Greece. Though seventh in size, it is one of the most populated in the whole of the Ionian Islands. The town’s stunning architecture has many influences including Sicilian, Venetian, French and English. Corfu Town is brimming with elegant mansions, magnificent palaces, beautiful squares, no fewer than 39 churches and majestic fortresses. You should not miss The Liston and the Church of Saint Spiridon. The entire Old Town is declared a UNESCO World Heritage site, a tightly-packed warren of winding lanes bursting with lively bars, unique shops and fine restaurants. You will also see timeless alleys with the day’s washing stretching from balcony to balcony. It is beautiful.
There is so much to see and do on Corfu. Corfu has over 120 beaches in total, a few hundred villages, nearly a thousand churches, a significant mountain range, valleys, waterfalls and forests as well as more than 3 million olive trees, three lagoons and numerous caves. The fauna and flora is world famous due to the Durrell family and especially since the TV series.
