Virtually hidden within an olive grove, Villa Kendroma is situated above the bays of Agni and Krouzeri. Air-conditioned and sleeping 6, the villa also has a large covered, South-facing veranda enjoying sunshine for much of the day and has fabulous views across the Corfu Channel to Albania and down towards Corfu Town. The little hamlet of Kendroma is a couple of bends further up the main road, while Agni is even closer.
This is a spacious air-conditioned villa with three bedrooms and one bathroom.
The villa comprises the top floor of the property; the owner lives unobtrusively below.
The furnishings are simple but comfortable. A wooden dining table seats six. The decorative arch takes you from the hallway into the lounge, with satellite TV (free channels only), and this in turn opens out to the balcony with its wonderful sea views.
The kitchen, which is situated to the left of the entrance hall, is modern and offers a full sized oven and fridge/freezer, with plenty of preparation surfaces. A door leads from the kitchen to the side balcony.
Each of the three twin, air-conditioned, bedrooms have French doors opening to the long veranda with its breathtaking sea views. The bedrooms are a good size with plenty of fitted wardrobe space.
The bathroom, although a little dated, is clean and functional. It has a bath with shower over, wc and washbasin.
The extensive veranda complements the villa and stretches along the entire front and sides of the property, offering some of the finest sea views imaginable.
Below the villa is St Arsenius Bay - a tiny bay of a startling shade of blue, with amazing rock formations. Here in this fabulous setting is a tiny chapel - written about in a very poetic way by Lawrence Durrell.
Maid service (x3)
Bed Linen and towels
For ease of access, the private parking at the front door of the villa, and inside everything is on one level, making this ideal for anyone with mobility problems.

The idyllic bay of Agni is a short walk through the olive groves. There is one path down, or you can walk via the road. It takes about 15-20 mins to walk down. Walking back up though is a different matter - including the couple of short rests you may require! The path and road are not very well lit at night so a torch is recommended.

Kendroma: is typical of the small villages that are to be found along the north east coast of Corfu with its highly traditional village cafeneion - only locals to be seen sitting outside. But, most of the village remains hidden from the sight of those passing through. Cross the small paved square with its fountain donated by a generous inhabitant, and you come to the concealed cobbled alleys of the old village, dropping steeply downhill, lined with solid stone houses. Simple shopping needs can be met at the cafeneion, and the beach and tavernas of Agni are nearby.

Places Close By
Agni Bay: In Greek Agni means un-spoilt and this describes Agni perfectly - just
three Tavernas (each with their own jetty for mooring up to) and a sprinkle of local buildings. The bay is reached mainly by rented motor boats, although recently
there is now a narrow road down into the bay. Each evening we offer a 'Speed Boat' taxi service, from surrounding bays to Taverna Agni. The above video shows the exciting experience.
Kalami: The bay of Kalami nestles below the hills of the North East Corfu and is famous for
both its beautiful beach, and Lawrence Durrell's 'White House'. A popular destination for couples, Kalami is also
ideal for a family holiday with tavernas, safe swimming, water sports and boat hire - everyone is catered for!
Krouzeri has a long beach (sandy and pebbles) offering safe swimming, water sports and diving. Beachside tavernas provide welcome refreshments to those enjoying the beach and excellent snorkelling. The nearby Nissaki Beach Hotel offers a swimming pool which is open to non-residents, a restaurant and bar and, during the evening a low-key disco. There is a jetty/collection point for the water taxis which operate in the area.
Kaminaki, located on Corfu's north-east coastline is spectacularly beautiful, but has remained uniquely unspoilt in spite of its celebrity-status.
Kaminaki is one of the small and enchanting bays that stud this coastline like jewels on a necklace. Still only a hamlet, with village houses occupied by their original local inhabitants, it has a mixture of modern and converted accommodation, two unpretentious tavernas (and others within easy reach), and water of Caribbean colours that laps against a gently shelving beach of pure white pebbles and sand.
Saint Stephanos: The island of Corfu has its secrets and Saint Stephanos, set around a horse-shoe shaped bay, is certainly one of them. An extremely pretty fishing village, located between Kalami and Kassiopi, that has managed to retain its traditional look and laidback feel . There is a small local Greek community that welcomes its visitors with the warmth and hospitality for which Greece is famous. The excellent setting, waterfront Tavernas and bars, along with a scattering of mini-markets, shops and boat hire create a delightful Greek island holiday destination.
