Aqualand Village

Putting the fun back into Greek island holidays, Aqualand Village is a sprawling complex focused around the huge waterpark next door, which is free for guests. It features two restaurants, plenty of bars and with Corfu Town being just 20 minutes away by car, the location is a dream as well. A quieter outdoor pool is a nice alternative to the hullabaloo of the waterpark and with well-equipped and spacious bedrooms on offer, you’ll want for absolutely nothing while staying in the Aqualand Village. This is the perfect accommodation option for families, as kids are particularly well catered for here, and Aghios Ioannis is just a short walk away.

Overview of Aghios Ioannis

In west Greece, the beautiful island of Corfu shares a culture with its mainland neighbour and a climate with beautiful Italy. Holidays to Corfu bring together a mix of influences that make for a uniquely memorable experience. Aghios Ioannis is a small but stunning inland village that delivers a quaint picture of traditional Corfu. Though it’s not teeming with tourist attractions, it has everything you’ll need for a relaxing and tranquil break and neighbouring resorts provide extra entertainment. Small and special, this is a village that offers a glimpse of a simpler way of life and will recharge your batteries with ease.

Things to do in Aghios Ioannis

Cafe culture is alive and kicking in Aghios Ioannis, with locals and tourists alike enjoying leisurely al fresco refreshments under the Corfu sun. An iced freddo espresso is a particular speciality and reminds you how close you are to Italy. A short bus ride will take you to the beautifully unspoilt Blue Flag Pelekas Beach. It’s quiet and secluded, with no loungers or parasols, but that’s what makes it so special. Take a picnic and relax for a day; you’ll be glad you did. Corfu Town is a short car or bus ride away and, being the capital of the island, is a lot more cosmopolitan and geared towards tourists. You’ll find a good selection of shops and restaurants here, if you fancy a little change from the laid-back local eateries.

Traditional villages like these are often discovered accidentally by tourists, but staying here you get to experience it every time you leave your front door.
