Book early for affordable Corfu in autumn

30th July 2009 Print

Book early for October half-term and take advantage of superbly priced villas and flights is the message from Vintage Travel, which specialises exclusively, in houses with private pools in areas of local tradition and culture.

On the island of Corfu, the company is featuring a selection of houses which are available for a week’s rental – starting 26 October – at a cost of just £395 each.

Calypso, for example, is a three bedroom – all with aircon, plus the principal bedroom has a sitting area and large private balcony – three bathroom property sleeping six which is situated off a quiet country lane on the unspoilt headland at Alonaki on the island’s southwest coast.

The house enjoys stunning views of both the Ionian Sea and the Agios Mattheos mountains and – in addition to the private pool – has a barbecue, open and covered terraces and garden with lawn.

It’s just a short stroll to steps that lead directly down to a Blue Flag sandy beach that can only be reached by foot or by boat, while other Blue Flag sandy beaches and seaside tavernas – specialising in fresh fish dishes – are within very easy reach.

Return UK flights and car hire are not included, but can be arranged on request – the company suggests checking out Easyjet for low-cost flights to Corfu.
