FAMILY VILLA IN CORFU
Holiday houses in the fashionable, north-eastern corner of Corfu fill early with repeat bookings year on year. Already the pickings here are becoming either eye-poppingly priced or thin on the ground. Petrino is a stone-built house sleeping six within a five-minute walk of St Stephano’s shops, harbour and beach, with private pool, large sun-terrace and views of the bay. The Easter holidays and early summer months are heavily booked and the window of opportunity in August is beginning to vanish.
£4,935, starting Aug 26 2019 (cvvillas.com). The biggest contingent of bookers come January will be families looking for holidays during the school holidays. If you are in that camp, don’t wait any longer, act now. Prices are per person, based on two sharing, including breakfast, flights and transfers for a week unless otherwise stated.
