A beautiful villa in very pretty gardens and a rare gem within easy reach of the golden sandy beach, it’s the ideal choice for families and couples looking for a holiday where they can spend time at the beach whilst enjoying relaxed and dramatic country location with their own private swimming pool. Lanzini has all the modern conveniences you could need with the all-important WiFi and even UK channels on the TV and air conditioning in the bedrooms. Set in beautiful, enclosed gardens with lush planting and several fruit trees, the above ground pool is a welcome feature to cool off on warm sunny days.
Happy guests return to this charming villa close the stunning west coast beaches year after year. Agios Gordis is one of the best beaches on the island with over a mile of golden sand, sun beds and umbrellas for hire and several beach-side tavernas for drinks and snacks, there’s even a secluded section for naturists at the far end. By contrast, away from the coast the scenery is lush and green with spectacular views of the surrounding hills and coastline punctuated with tall cypress trees and groves of gnarled olives.
For a fun day out, take the 45-minute ride by local bus into Corfu Town, the island’s capital. It’s a fabulous town you can explore on foot with winding cobbled streets in the picturesque old town. Unesco listed, there’s a wonderful church dedicated to the island’s patron saint Aghios Spiridon with beautiful murals and relics of the saint kept in a golden shrine, a 16th Century Venetian Fortress and wonderful shopping, from produce markets to jewellers and carpet shops to familiar names like Marks and Spencer. When you’re feeling hungry there’s something for everyone with street vendors selling pita-souvlaki, fast food joints and lots of excellent restaurants with more traditional fare to choose from. Alternatively head for the Liston, a replica of the colonnaded Rue de Rivoli in Paris, lined with civilised cafés overlooking the cricket ground and ideal for people watching.
