Corfu’s south west coastline is a far cry from the more frequented north east – on this less populated coastline lies Lake Korission, protected from the sea by a long stretch of sandy beach called Halikounas.
The lake is a haven for over 100 species of birdlife including great white egrets, oyster catchers and curlews.
Halikounas beach has soft sand dunes and no beachfront building. Surrounding areas are unspoilt: farmland, olive and citrus groves, plant nurseries and pine copses, sandy coves, simple waterfront tavernas and a pleasing lack of large hotels.
The peaceful and countrified hamlet of Almyra is surrounded by olive groves, vineyards and citrus orchards and is just a hop from the isolated beach of Kanouli.
The coastline north of Halikounas has smaller sandy beaches (Kanouli, Prassoudi and others).
As Nigel Summerley expressed in a Sunday Times article: "Here you'll find ancient olive groves, cliffs that fall away to untouched bays and villages that have seemingly succumbed to perpetual siesta."
Villa Kochili lies next door to Villas Harmonia and Anetta and is surrounded by olive groves of Almyra - just 150 metres away from the sandy beach of Kanouli.
It has a peaceful, private and natural location with views over olive groves and up to mountainsides of maquis scrub.
Kochili is spacious, sleek, stylish and very modern.
Wide pool terraces lead to grassed lawns within a private olive grove.
Kochili offers an exceedingly comfortable escape from the crowds.
Private swimming pool 8.50 x 4.50 & depth 0.80 - 1.50 metres (heated at extra cost of 40 Euros per day - payable locally)
