Villa overview

Nestled in mature olive groves above Avlaki Bay, with wonderful views over the headlands of north east Corfu, Villa Aurora provides the perfect setting for a relaxing family holiday. Set in an acre of grounds, Aurora offers exclusivity and seclusion, yet all essential holiday amenities are close by. Avlaki beach, with its crystal-clear waters and two excellent tavernas, is a short walk down an unmade track that winds through the olive groves. The waters edge tavernas of Agios Stefanos and the bustling harbour of Kassiopi are only a few minutes’ drive. The villa’s many communal and private spaces make it ideal for families holidaying together.

*** Special offer *** 20% discount for last remaining 2024 bookings.

Aurora has two double and two twin bedrooms each with en-suite bathrooms. All bedrooms are fitted with air conditioning, and have vaulted ceilings and ample storage facilities. French doors lead from each bedroom lead onto the balcony that runs the entire length of the villa, providing wonderful sea views. The master bedroom has ample space for a cot and a futon for younger children, enabling the villa to accommodate 8 adults and 2 young children.

Swimming pool
The swimming pool measures 10m x 5m with a depth from 0.5m to 1.9m, and is surrounded by a generous patio. Access to the pool can be restricted via a gate at the top of the stairs leading from the veranda to the pool. In the early and late seasons, an air source heat pump takes the chill off the pool water, raising it to a few degrees higher than it would otherwise be. Use of the system will be discussed prior to travel.

Our ever helpful and fully bilingual property manager, Natushka provides a meet and greet service together with a complimentary welcome pack containing essentials. She and her husband Yianni are available throughout your holiday, to assist with any problems that might arise during your stay. The villa is serviced twice weekly, bed linen, bath towels and pool towels are provided.

Villa amenities
Aurora is contemporarily furnished and provides spacious, well-appointed accommodation. The open plan living space adjoins a fully equipped kitchen with island breakfast bar. French doors lead from the kitchen to an outdoor veranda with a comfortable seating area for relaxing and a large dining table. Retractable insect screens have recently been installed in this area to prevent uninvited flying guests gate-crashing your dinner parties.

Kitchen facilities include electric oven, ceramic hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge/freezer and drinks fridge. A separate snug room includes a smart TV enabling you to enjoy your favourite subscription channels whilst away on holiday. The dining room, with its circular marble table, is perfect for cooler evenings or late night card games. There is a ground floor cloakroom and a utility room with washing machine. The en-suite bathroom in the master bedroom contains a bath and shower whilst the en-suite bathroom in one of the twin rooms does not have a shower..

The gardens bordering the house and pool host a wide variety or Mediterranean plants. The poolside patio has sun beds and an umbrella for shade from the midday sun. A pergola, set slightly above the pool area, provides a quiet space if you need a bit of 'me time'. There is a BBQ to prepare a sumptuous supper and a table tennis table to work it off the following day.

Eating out
The area is well served by excellent tavernas serving delicious, freshly cooked local dishes. Cavo Barbaro and Taverna Avlaki are just a 700m walk down an old olive grove track to Avlaki Bay, where you can dine overlooking the sea. There are water's edge tavernas in Agios Stefanos, (Eucalyptus, Kaparelli, Galini and Kochili) and many more tavernas and bars in Kassiopi (Tavernaki, Petrino, Little Italy, Vasilikos, The Wave Bar and Harbour Bar). Alternatively take a water taxi to Taverna Agni for a memorable evening. Local supermarkets are a five minute's drive - Yannis Market in Sinies provides online shopping and will deliver to the villa.

Days out
Hiring a motor boat is a fun way to explore the idyllic coves that are the signature of North East Corfu’s beauty, made famous by Gerald Durrell's books. Stop for a swim off the beautiful beaches of the Eremitis headland, then head down to Kalami, Agni or Nissaki for lunch. Agios Spyridon, a slowly shelving sandy beach ideal for children, is only a short drive along the North coast. Look out for the 'Ice Dream' parlour just before the turn, a must for the return journey! Aqualand, a water theme park in the centre of the island, is a great day out for children and adults alike.

Car hire
Although all amenities are close by, car hire is strongly recommended to get the most from your holiday. Most international firms are represented at Corfu Airport and the drive to the villa along the coast road takes about one hour. Alternatively, we can arrange a transfer by taxi to the villa (approximately €80) where a local firm will be pleased to deliver your hire car.

Changeover day
During the month of July and August, our preferred changeover date is Saturday, and we can only let the villa for multiples of seven days. In May and June, September and October, there is greater flexibility on changeover dates and the length of the holiday period. We may also be able to offer discounts for smaller sized parties preferring the space and amenities or a larger villa.

Travel arrangements
There are scheduled and charter flights to Corfu leaving from various UK airports. There are many friendly boutique hotels in Corfu Old Town that provide an ideal way to extend your holiday by a day or two in order to appreciate the beautiful old town or to match the sometimes rather demanding flight schedules. Try Hotel Bella Venezia, Siorra Vittoria or Cavalieri Hotel.

Villa Aurora couldn't have been more perfect for our 16, 18 & 19 year old kids and their friends post exams and gap year. This was a very special holiday for us and the villa worked perfectly for social group living with the open plan kitchen lounge, plentiful space around the pool and generous sized bedrooms. There are so many thoughtful and...

We started holidaying in Greece when our children were young as we were always assured of a friendly welcome. We had heard so much about the beauty of North East Coast and arrived in Avlaki by chance some 25 years ago. The peaceful, sheltered bay with its crystal clear water obviously left a lasting impression. Having visited, and thoroughly enjoyed many other Greek islands, fate drew us back to Avlaki and we realised the benefit of instant relaxation when returning to somewhere you have visited before. Avlaki has hardly changed since, except for the gradual development of privately owned villas in the olive groves above the bay, one of which we are extremely fortunate to own. We were lucky to find a plot of land with planning permission in 2007 and the villa was completed in 2008. We designed Aurora as a home to be shared with others and we are pleased to have many regular clients who look forward to returning each year.
