Location

General Information

Poulades is a small agricultural settlement close to Corfu Town to the bustling resorts of Gouvia and Kontokali and near to beaches of the local area including Dassia, a short drive will take you to the celebrated beauty spots of the island on the west coast, Liapades and Paleokastritsa.

Although there is no village centre, Poulades is set in an elevated central location close to Corfu Town and the picturesque areas of the west coast of the island.

A visit to Corfu town is super easily accessed,  definately not to be missed as Corfu is known as one of the most charming and romantic places throughout Greece. Spend unforgettable evenings wandering through the streets and stop en route for a delicious, traditional meal or meze.

It is a perfect example of ancient Venetian and Byzantine art that will be able to fascinate you with its little streets and panoramic points.

Surrounded by the sea, the town of Corfu lays between the two ancient fortresses.

 Corfu Town is located in a strategic position at the entrance of the Adriatic Sea, and has its roots in the 8th century BC. The three forts of the town, designed by renowned Venetian engineers, were used for four centuries to defend the maritime trading interests of the Republic of Venice against the Ottoman Empire. In the course of time, the forts were repaired and partly rebuilt several times, more recently under British rule in the 19th century. The mainly neoclassical housing stock of the Old Town is partly from the Venetian period, partly of later construction, notably the 19th century. As a fortified Mediterranean port, Corfu’s urban and port ensemble is notable for its high level of integrity and authenticity.
It will be an unforgettable experience to spend hours and hours just wandering throug thousands of small paved streets, and discoveringr the old towns' secrets and buying quaint gifts presents to bring back home to savour over. Buy traditional products in ancient cellars, surrounded by stone staircases, old Venetian walls and secluded gardens.
Each and Every building, and street will appear like an open museum, but the joie de vivre of the local people will remember you that the old town is also full of life and full of surprises where secrets of the past are eagerly shared.

In the beautifully preserved Old Town of Corfu, a UNESCO world heritage site, Renaissance, Baroque and Classical “repertoire” came to be successfully combined with local artistic traditions. Palaces, fortresses, austere public buildings of the Venetian rule uniquely blend with lines of drying washing in tiny alleyways and small secluded squares. Strolling through a complex of narrow cobbled streets with stairways and vaulted passages, the so-called “kantoúnia”, will make you feel as if you’ve travelled to Venice or Genoa.

A romantic walk from the old fortress all the way along the coastal pavement, around Garitsa bay, will lead you to the far end of the bay, where an Windmill (Anemomylos as is called in Greek) is decorating this part of the town. Enjoy a coffee or a drink at the little caffe in the windmill watching the moored boats and the luxury yachts all around the bay.

Just 1.5 km up the hill, at the back of the Windmill, "rest" the traces of the ancient city of Corfu (8th cent. BC) is the green estate of Mon Repos, which spreads over 258 acres of lush vegetation and beautiful gardens, which adorn scattered fragments of ancient memory.
In the estate of Mon Repos, which occupies most of the hill of Analipsis (the Ascension), built his summer mansion in 1831, the British High Commissioner of the Ionian Islands Frederic Adam for the sake of his beloved wife Corfiot Nina Palatianou in plans English architect Gouaitmor (Whitmore).
In 1864, after the Union of the Ionian Islands with Greece, the city of Corfu gave the palace and gardens in the dynasty of George I in order to use it as a summer residence. King George I was also the one who gave him so graphically the name Mon Repos (My Rest).
Just on 1991 the Justice ruled that the Mon Repos belongs to the people of Corfu. In this decision helped a lot and the ruins of ancient temples, the best preserved, which, according to the archaeological evidence is believed to belong to Apollo, the oldest and largest, as also the scant evidence of Akraia Ira, like the other signs left by the time, since in this area was the extended Paleopolis, part of the ancient city of Corfu. It is worth noting that until 1991 the access to property for guests was impossible.
Sightseeing:

Corfu's pedestrian-only old town is a warren of crumbling Venetian-style buildings, Italianate churches, chic boutiques and rustic tavernas. Locals gather on the Spianada, a vast green space where they play cricket, and the Liston, a 19th-century arcade sheltering a string of cafes. Guarding the town and accessed from the Spianada, the Old Fortress juts out into the sea, while the New Fortress majestically commands a hilltop position behind the old town.

Terrasse très agréable, environnement extrêmement calme…propice au repos… L’aspect double Villa est vraiment sympa…. Administrateur très sérieux…Je conseille vivement(EN:) We had a very good holiday in this excellent accommodation, very peaceful, very functional and very well-equipped.

A Satisfying Stay at Villa Aphrodite

The stay at Villa Aphrodite was very nice. The price-performance ratio was right and the accommodation offers everything you need for a nice vacation. The pool invites you to relax and a highlight is the second smaller pool, where you could sit comfortably inside. We were very satisfied and had a great time at Villa Aphrodite.

Un Ambiente Incantevole, Ben Curato e Adatto a Coppie e Famiglie Tranquille

<p>Questa casa su Airbnb offre un ambiente incantevole con un design moderno e ben curato. Il cortile con la piscina è perfetto per il relax. Tuttavia, non è adatta a gruppi di amici rumorosi a causa delle restrizioni sul rumore. La posizione decentrata richiede spostamenti più lunghi e strade scomode. Nel complesso, ideale per coppie e famiglie tranquille.</p><p>This Airbnb house offers a gorgeous atmosphere with modern and well-maintained design. The backyard with swimming pool is perfect for relaxation. However, it is not suitable for noisy groups of friends due to sound restrictions. The out of the way location requires longer commutes and bumpy roads. All in all, ideal for quiet couples and families</p>
