Corfu’s south west coastline is a far cry from the more frequented north east – on this 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. The 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 and simple tavernas.
Starfish Villa is just a 3 minute walk from the sandy beach of Alonaki Bay, above which can be found the excellent Michaelis Taverna. The villa has private access to a small sandy cove via a steep path of 35 steps.
Most of the villa’s interiors open out on to verandahs to enjoy views and sounds of the sea. The front terraces provide circle seats for the setting sun.
Private swimming pool & solar heated jacuzzi
