The bay containing Coyevinas beach and Avlaki beach lies between St Stephano and Kassiopi on Corfu’s north east coast.
Avlaki has two good, beachfront tavernas; Coyevinas has no beachfront intrusion from building or sunlounger. The Erimitis Peninsular beyond Avlaki beach is a nature reserve.
Villa Ostria is a swish, modern villa with large private grounds (10 acres) overlooking Bolana Bay on the outskirts of Kassiopi. The village of Kassiopi is 500 metres away.
There are many beaches in this area. The villa looks directly on to Avlaki beach, which has two good tavernas, a small sailing and windsurfing club and boats for hire. Soukia beach is just a 5 minute walk away from the villa.
From its elevated location Ostria sees the sun rise and set. The views are dramatic: over the hillsides of pine, olive and cypress towards the village houses of Kassiopi, along the forested Erimitis Peninsula, and across the sea to the coastline and mountains of Albania.
By day there are passing fishing boats and yachts; by night there is a theatre of mountain village lights and bright stars.
Ostria’s exteriors offer sun traps around a large pool; pergolas for relaxing in shade; large terraces and colourful gardens; beautiful, natural surroundings. The interiors are uncluttered, spacious, comfortable – furnished and equipped to a high, modern standard. A smart-house system allows guests to control temperature, lighting, music and shutters by touch button.
