It was our first trip to Greece, first trip to Corfu and Anna, Tassos, Theo and Kostas made it just the perfect end-of-summer getaway my husband I had been looking for. Located on top of a hill, overlooking the beautiful bay, their property offers the quiet and privacy people from the city are longing for. Most of its clientele are return guests, who , like us, see Anna Studios as the perfect home in Corfu. The swimming pool offers a nice alternative to Arillas Beach, and the olive grove next door gives a much-needed sense of tranquility for a stressed out body (and sometimes, soul). The restaurant and bar serves up the basic (ie very cold beer and some snacks). The restaurants down the hill and along the beach are the places to go for a much-more filling meal. Do avoid the little shop (or supermarket as they call it) down the hill, on the left side (on the way to the beach). The man who owns it does take advantage of unsuspecting and gullible guests who get excited upon seeing the words "real Greek" or "authentic" or "organic." He normally holds fort outside, sipping his coffee, and charms people to come into his shop where most of the products are past their sell-by date. The supermarket up the hill from Anna Studios (on the right side) is better-stocked, inlcuding fresh fruit and veg, and the man who runs it much more pleasant and welcoming.
Back to Anna Studios - the rooms are cleaned everyday, sheets and towels changed when you want them to - (which in a way is good, in the long run, for the environment. Theo picked us up at the airport and helpfully gave us a lowdown of the island, and the Greek economy and politics during the 45-hour drive from the airport. Tassos' sense of humour and candidness is a refreshing welcome from the usual hype you get from property owners and managers.
