Few villas on this stretch of the Corfu coastline can match the setting of Gallini. Standing by the railings of the swimming pool, it is not hard to imagine that you are leaning on the rail of a cruise ship, basking in the beauty of the Ionian sun and seascapes. With its clear sea and clean beaches, its rocky headlands that are heaven for snorkellers, and its seaside restaurants that make a perfect rendezvous for a lazy lunch with friends, this is a simply perfect place for a relaxed family holiday.
Gallini is one of our favourite properties, and has always been spacious and comfortable but has recently benefited from a face-lift. The beautiful swimming pool terrace has stunning views on three sides, and is flanked by a most attractive shaded seating and dining area with comfortable rattan sofas. Whole days can be spent here quite happily, perhaps venturing down through the natural garden to the shore where there is a bathing platform, daytime boat mooring and superb flat rock bathing. A beach is a short swim away.
