Corfu’s south west coastline of small sandy beaches frames a peaceful and agricultural landscape of olive groves, citrus orchards and vineyards, beneath the mountain village and monastery of Agios Mattheos.
The seaside village of Paramonas has around 30 residents, one small hotel, two tavernas, a bakery and a minimarket. This is one of just a few villas on the village outskirts, just a 10 minute walk to the beach, and offers an escape from the crowds.
Spacious interiors open out to sea facing terraces, for both sun and shade, and provide theatrical settings for west coast sunsets over a plateau of olive and pine trees.
Paramonas beach, with more sand than pebble, is just under half a kilometre away. Two tavernas lie close to the beach. There are no water sports here and nothing to amuse the younger crowd but if peaceful seclusion becomes monotonous, the resorts of Messonghi (on the east coast) and Agios Gordis (on the west) are a 15 minute drive away.
Private pool 12 x7 metres & depth 0.70 – 1.8 metres and separate Jacuzzi.
Maid service and linen change twice weekly.
Car hire recommended to explore and to have easy access to nearby tavernas, shops and other beaches. The shops and tavernas of sleepy Agios Mattheos are 2 kilometres away. Lake Korission, a haven for over 100 species of birdlife including great white egrets, oyster catchers and curlews, is 10 kilometres south. Corfu Town is 22 kilometres.
