About the villa

This is a villa which offers a taste of timeless Corfu, where gorgeous seafront gardens are screened for privacy with mature trees, sprinkled with flowers and blossoming shrubs, and criss-crossed with paved pathways, including a vine-draped pergola arch leading straight to the beach. The two-storey house has colour-washed walls, shuttered windows and two apartments, one on each floor. Within the walled grounds are quiet corners, shady lawns, a built-in barbecue, and a ten metre swimming pool in a sun-soaked terrace, all enjoyed by guests in both the Upper and Lower apartments.So when Sophia is booked as a whole, the house is ideal for two families, offering a level of privacy for each. Separately, each apartment is self-contained, with individual access and doors to outdoor space.  The Upper apartment has balconies woven with burgeoning bougainvillea, a double and twin bedroom, each with air conditioning, and an open-plan living/dining room with white walls, pale tiled floors and doors to the balcony.
The Upper and Lower apartments can be booked separately or together.

About the area


Average weather

Lying between St Stephano and Kouloura, Kerasia is one of the prettiest little coves along this idyllic stretch of coast. Shelving shingle, crystal waters, a couple of boat jetties, and a taverna are all contained within a sweep of bay between two rocky headlands, all backed by eucalyptus and olive groves. Kerasia holidays are ideal for anyone who wants to get away from it all: families with young children, couples who want to chill out together, or older folk looking for somewhere to enjoy the Greek climate and laid-back daily routine.

Car Hire

boat Hire

There is no better way to explore the coastline and discover deserted bays and coves with their translucent water to add to the overall enjoyment of your holiday. Small boats and speedboats can be pre-booked with our UK office prior to departure and we recommend early reservations, especially in July and August, as availability is limited. UK boat licences will no longer be valid in Europe from January 2021 due to Brexit. Smaller size boats can still be hired without a licence which remains unchanged.
