Villa Spiros is located in a fabulous spot in Karousades, just outside Sidari on the north coast of Corfu. The village of Karousades is nestled in a cypress and pine forest cloak on the outskirts of Sidari. Its shabby chic streets are piled high with pretty, pastel painted, vine-strung houses with their age-worn shutters and terracotta roofs and complete with a sprinkling of tavernas. You will feel as though time has forgetten this authentic little village. Just five minutes away is the neon lit Sidari with its fabulous package of entertainment and its beautiful beach. You will discover cocktail bars, live music, Greek dancing, karaoke and perhaps the odd plate smashing session. As well as its lively nightlife, there is plenty for children and some excellent restaurants. The wonderful resorts of Roda and Acharavi are ten minutes away and the popular Kassiopi on the north east coast is 20-25 minutes away. Villa Karousades is also just 5 minutes drive from the Canal D’Amour, a fabulous tourist attraction.
The design of Villa Spiros is inspired, making the most of the space and the stunning views. The double height aspect is highly impressive. Natural light floods through the many doors and windows and is a lovely aspect to wake up to in your mezzanine bed. The villa has been built with care and passion using olive wood for the stairs and handmade furniture and Corfiot pine and stones, all creating a wonderful welcoming ambience. Guests enjoy total privacy and picturesque sunset views from the terrace and swimming pool. Villa Spiros enjoys 152 sqm of space within a gorgeous plot of approximately 900 sqm. The villa is enveloped by its beautiful gardens and a barbecue area, a delightful spot for alfresco dining and pre-dinner drinks. The pool and jacuzzi are wonderful, set in the garden along with lush green lawn and beautifully planted borders.
The living space is a cavernous wonder. It is beautifully fitted and furnished and offers a modern, shaker style kitchen with excellent appliances and a social breakfast island. The dining table is gorgeous, made from chunky wood and with a bench to match as well as some chairs. The dresser is also very lovely. On the other side of the room is your lounge area with its contemporary corner sofa which could sleep two more guests. The mellow exposed stonework blends beautifully with the beamed, vaulted ceiling and the gorgeous wooden floors. A modern staircase takes you upstairs to your mezzanine bedroom. You will discover a beautifully dressed double bed, a single daybed tucked behind, plenty of wardrobe space and a fabulous ensuite bathroom. The bathroom features yet more wonderful woodwork, a very large walk-in shower and a gorgeous stone sink.

Villa Spiros LocationKarousades is a charming village with a sprinkling of tavernas amongst the pretty, flower clad houses. It is surrounded by lush greenery on the outskirts of the popular tourist resort of Sidari. It is approximately 35 km from Corfu Town and the airport. Sidari offers a fabulous array of restaurants, bars, supermarkets, vehicle hire shops, souvenir shops and travel agents offering many different tours. Sidari Beach is wonderful with excellent watersports and many organised loungers and parasols. There is a scuba diving school close to the beach. The small port offers boat trips to the isolated islands of Othoni, Mathraki and Erikoussa, known for their turquoise waters and stunning coves. Sidari also boasts a small water park inside a hotel which is open to non-residents.
Very close to the villa is the famous Canal d’Amour with its unique geological formations. It is definitely a must visit being so close.
Roda is a lovely resort ten minutes away from the villa. The eastern part of the beach is the village’s picturesque fishing harbour. There are plenty of tavernas, bars and shops and a delightful sandy beach. Many watersports are available as well as boat trips to Paleokastritsa, Corfu Town and the coastal islands near Corfu. Roda boasts some archaeological sites such as the remains of a Doric temple dating from the 5th century BC. You will see some of the finds from Roda in the archaeological museum in Corfu Town.
Also not far from the villa is Acharavi which enjoys a wonderful variety of shops, bars and restaurants. They are sprinkled along the central street and along the beach promenade. Acharavi’s golden beach stretches the whole length of the town, a lengthy 3km. Visitors will find plenty of loungers and umbrellas for hire and a wonderful selection of beach bars.
Paleokastritsa is rumoured to be the mythical island of the Phaeacians and the Bay of Paleokastritsa to be the place where Odysseus disembarked and met Nausicaa for the first time. The monastery in Paleokastritsa dates back to 1225 and is home to an interesting museum which houses the holy and precious relics of the monastery. It stands on a sheer hillside brimming with trees and olives facing the deep blue sea. The resort is very hilly and nestles beneath the folds of steep verdant slopes of olive groves and citrus orchards. Agios Spyridon is the the most famous beach in Paleokastritsa.
In the lively north eastern corner of Corfu you will discover the beautiful resort of Kassiopi. With the dramatic Mount Pantokrator overlooking the resort and with a stunning harbour, this once quiet fishing village is definitely worth a visit. Kassiopi boasts traditional narrow streets overlooked by the ruins of an ancient Byzantine castle together with breathtaking views out to sea towards the Albanian coast. There is a good selection of excellent restaurants and some good shops. Visitors enjoy delightful, tranquil walks around the headland.
Corfu Town or Kerkyra as it is otherwise known, is 35 km away. It is one of the most beautiful and elegant towns in Greece. Though seventh in size, Corfu Town is one of the most populated towns in the whole of the Ionian Islands. The entire old city is declared a UNESCO World Heritage site. Corfu Town’s unique charm, sophistication, character, atmosphere and faultless cuisine should not be missed. The town’s stunning architecture has many strong influences including Sicilian, Venetian, French and English. This beautiful town is brimming with elegant mansions, magnificent palaces, beautiful squares, majestic fortresses and the very best selection of gastronomic restaurants.
