NOT having to worry about hiring a car while on holiday can make the whole trip much easier and cheaper.
Reader Louise Jones wrote in to ask our advice on the best places to stay in Corfu without the hassle of hiring a car.
Q: “We want to go to Corfu for a villa holiday in 2020. We would like a town or village with a beach, plenty of tavernas, shops and places to mooch about.
“But we also need access to a bus service to travel around the island because we do not want to hire a car.
“And we would rather not stay in Corfu Town. Do you have any suggestions?”
A. Not hiring a car restricts your options slightly. But Kassiopi is a great choice to base yourself. It has a comprehensive choice of bars, tavernas and shops to suit all tastes and pockets on the sought-after northeast corner of the island.
The villa Petros is just over a mile from the village and 200m from beautiful Votana Bay. Less than a mile away is the beautiful, secluded beach of Avlaki and its two adjacent tavernas.
The villa itself sleeps eight people in four en suite bedrooms with a contemporary style and spacious living space.
There are two living rooms, one on each floor, as well as a formal dining area.
Outside you can make the most of a private swimming pool, which can be fenced off on request if you have young children, as well as a gazebo, open and shaded terraces and a built-in barbecue.
A seven-night holiday in 2020 starts from £1,114 rising to £4124 in peak season.
