This exclusive villa sits on the Kommeno peninsula on Corfu, with beautiful views over Gouvia Bay. The seven-bedroom property has a large garden and 18m private pool - ideal for families looking for a luxury holiday rental in Greece.
Arriving into Corfu airport, it’s a 25-minute drive up the east coast to Villa Hydra. The house is set in 6,000sqm of landscaped gardens, providing a private haven for guests. It’s also conveniently close to the restaurants, bars and supermarket in Kommeno, just 500m away. Along the bay you’ll find watersports centres, and it’s a great spot for parasailing with views across the water to Albania. If you fancy exploring the coastline by boat, it couldn’t be easier; you can rent a boat from the jetty in front of the villa. Gouvia is less than 3km away, a former Venetian naval base that’s now a smart marina with waterfront restaurants. There are several pebble beaches in Gouvia bay, but for a sandy beach you needn’t travel far – the Blue Flag Kontokali Beach is 3.4km from the villa.
