Acharavi, Corfu, Ionian Islands
The best choice for the most authentic and alternative holidays.

It is a very cozy and hospitable house , suitable for those who prefer peaceful family or romantic vacations .

The guest house is the first one of the eight houses one can find while reaching the linear agglomeration of Fourni. Fourni is a very small village, at the north hillsides of mount Pantokratoras -the highest on Corfu island- 10 minutes distance from the nearest town and beach of Acharavi.

Castelli Olive Press was my family's small home olive press, serving , also, the nearby houses of Fourni village. The building was built 150 years ago and was covering the needs of the village, until new contemporary units of processing olives appeared in the area, about 50 years ago. Then, the only thing left was the 'screw', which the people started to use it for...

About the neighbourhood
From a distance, Fourni village looks like a hamlet perched on one of Mount Pantokrator’s hillsides, as an eagle’s nest, on a cliff’s edge, that of Castelli. At half the distance of the road connecting Episkepsi and St Panteleimon villages, starts a 500 m. country winding road, among centenary olive trees, leading to Fourni.
Fourni, perched at 400 m. , is a linear agglomeration, consisting of 8 residential properties. The road ends when reaching the third house. You can access to the other houses through paths and courtyards. The agglomeration composition and form was established during the Interwar period, and remains unchanged to today.
Getting around
The nearest village, Episkepsi, located among olive trees, has magnificent manors and picturesque houses and alleys with stone steps. There are a few grill taverns and a mini market for the bare essentials.

Within 4,2 km and at a 37 km distance from Corfu Town lies the Acharavi village, built on a plain with particularly dense vegetation. Mostly impressive is its 8 km sand beach , one of the largest in Corfu. Here you can find super markets, bike and car rentals ,restaurants, pharmacies and shops to meet all your needs during your stay in Corfu.
