Greek Orthodox Easter is a gigantic celebration in Corfu, Greece where you’ll find the streets filled with vibrant choirs, bands, religious processions and even clay pots falling from the sky. This year Greek Easter collides with the UK Easter holiday and with a stunning ‘Royal Wedding’ public holiday, it is one of the best times to travel. Good Friday is the most important day of the festival with thousands of visitors from Athens and other parts of Greece descending to watch processions from many churches, all held in memory of the burial of Christ. CV Travel has come up with a selection of villas in Greece that you can experience Greek Easter luxuriously.
Enjoy ultimate relaxation at Kaparelli House with your own private chef
Arguably one of the finest luxury villas in Greece, Kaparelli House is located in the exclusive North East coast of Corfu with a breathtaking horizon pool, a master suite that includes a Jacuzzi bath on the balcony and far-reaching sea views. For rental over Easter, Kaparelli House comes with its own private cook to prepare daily breakfast and one other meal a day – a perfect chance to try some traditional, authentic Easter meals. A week’s stay includes maid service and a welcome food hamper.
The Villa Mokoras is perfect for those looking for affordable luxury
Luxury needn’t cost the earth and for a week’s stay over Easter, Villa Mokoras is an affordable option. Set on Corfu’s exclusive North East coast, enjoy wide open terraces, a built in barbecue and a freeform pool of varying depths. Maid service, a welcome food hamper and car hire are all included in the price.
Less than an hour’s drive from Corfu Town, with its flamboyant Easter festivities and only a few minutes drive to the lively harbour town of Kassiopi, Villa Karakousi is in a great location to enjoy all that a Greek Easter has to offer. The villa is a great base for relaxation, with spacious terraces and a private pool.
The Trifylli House combines stunning views and style
Straight out of the pages of an interiors magazine, Trifylli House is a Greek island villa that combines style with a unique location. The villa rests in the fabulous Rou Estate which is set high above Corfu’s North East coast. The village was recently brought back to life by a British architect and his holistic therapist wife. Privately located at the top of the village of just 13 houses, Trifylli House enjoys the benefit of a spa and one of the most breathtaking horizon pools shared by any villas in Greece, while having its own plunge pool and sunny terraces too.
