The bedrooms are all en-suite and the property has been furnished so that you can relax and enjoy your holiday. Villa Athena also benefits from being only 15 minutes drive from the airport and historic Corfu Town, with its quaint shops, restaurants and historic attractions. Nearby, close to Ermones Beach is Corfu's internationally renowned 18 hole Golf course, which was designed by Donald Harradine. For families with young children the giant water park Aqua-land is very close by to keep young children happy when they have tired of the beach.More

Corfu is steeped in history both the Venetians and the British have occupied Corfu and you will still find much evidence of their architecture and rule here today. The cricket pitch in Corfu town is just one of the many interesting and quirky features.
