We were greeted by Elani who looked after us all week, baking lovely cakes to fatten us up! The Villa Gallini was spotless, well equipped and we wanted for nothing. There was my girlfriend and I with a 3 year old and we fitted just nicely into the villa with a bit of room to spare. The village itself is beautiful as are the views from the pool - book us in for next year please! You definitely need a car but it's only a short drive to most places. There is a place to get bread and vans that sell fish, veg and meat most mornings.

We were travelling along the coast of some of the Balkan countries on our way to Corfu when we booked this hotel while in Sarande, Albania. It was a last minute booking and we did not really have time to look further. That was our lucky strike, as we could not have picked a better place to stay in / near Corfu. Agallis Residence, which is in fact a home away from home, is located in Sokraki, about 25 km from Corfu Ferry terminal and 20 to 30 minute drive to the island beaches. We arrived at this property late afternoon and were warmly welcomed by the landlord family with local welcome drinks and homemade cookies. They showed us Villa Armonia, the house reserved for us, it can accommodate up to 10 people. It is extremely well furnished and artistically decorated. It has a breath taking view of the mountain and the sea below. The swimming pool is excellent and big enough to relax and enjoy the scenery around. The village is very quiet and small with about 200 inhabitants all year long but in summer, in summer people return to Sokraki to visit their families. The village is like one big and extended family! On the day we arrived, 13 August, coincided with a village get together and the property owner invited us very warmly to attend. So we attended that get together never to be missed if you happen to be there between 10 and 15 August. It looks they have other functions as well. The get together was for us an occasion to mix with the locals, something we always like to do in our travels. It was a memorable night. Breakfast was not included ,however the landlady, a very nice lay treated us with coffee and green figues and fruit from their garden below , which were very delicious. There is an excellent restaurant in the village where we had dinner, the food was exquisite and the cost was very reasonable. (I will write a review about it separately).

As a seasoned traveller, I'd rank this as one of the most beautiful places I've ever stayed. We brought two children - a seven-year-old and a baby - and stayed in the Villa Gallini. From the start we were enchanted by the views stretching across the sea to Albania, the infinity pool where swallows skimmed the surface of the water in the evening, and the extensive gardens scented with jasmine, camomile, and roses. The villa itself was pristine, with two beautiful bedrooms - one a double room with a wrought iron bed, and one a twin bed set-up which had a travel cot provided for the baby. The kitchen was well resourced, and we were greeted with a wonderful welcome tray which included a bottle of olive oil, homemade limoncello, freshly baked biscuits, a pot of honey, and sachets of butter. Eleni was an extraordinary host - every other morning she'd pop by with something freshly baked, and was always on hand to give advice about where to go to, or to provide anything we needed. The village itself was tiny and charming, and we found it very easy to go for half-day trips to lovely locations including Palaeokastritsa and Agios Stefanos. We'll be back!

We had a wonderful fortnight here. We stayed in the Villa Gallini part of the residence. The view from our bedroom window was superb. The windows are all fitted with fly screens so together with the quietness we slept very well. The apartment was well furnished and had all the necessary requirements to cook our own meals when we felt like it. Our hostess Elaini, was very welcoming and brought us food treats of different types every day. The village of Sokraki is very picturesque and quaint with a lovely little bar/café where we sat and had our Ouzos in the evening. There is a nice restaurant a short walk away, with lovely views. We couldn’t have wished for more. Oh yes, just one tip – the television finds it very difficult to pick up channels but there is a DVD player, so take some DVDs with you.

We are a family of 7, 5 children aged 17,15,8 and twins 3.5. We stayed in the largest villa of the two (the highest one up in the pictures). The house was beautiful, it had 2 rooms with double beds, one room with 2 single beds and one room where 2 singles had been pushed together - myself and my husband stayed here. There were wardrobes in each room and the rooms were immaculately decorated and the beds were comfortable. On the ground floor was a well appointed bathroom and the kitchen/living area. The kitchen was well equipped with everything you need to make meals with. The cupboards had some everyday items and Elena had provided a wonderful welcome basket to get us through the first morning. Elena lives on the property, and comes in to clean the house every three days with another lovely lady. They did a amazing job considering how much mess the children made! Hehe Elena was a wonderful lady who was always there if we needed to ask anything and helped us so much. Niko was also fantastic and also helped us whenever we asked. We also got to meet the rest of their family and they were all friendly and positive and very generous whenever we saw them :-) The pool was lovely, the twins could stand up at the shallow end which was great. The deep end was maybe 140cm deep. The village was a traditional Greek village so if you want touristy stuff look else where. There is a playground which we went to everyday, a bakery, a taverna, a cafe and a taverna/little shop selling essentials/cafe. I could not recommend the last place enough, it's right across the road from the brightly colored cafe, looks a bit dark but it's owned by one of the nicest people we met there. The twins called him bestefar which means grandad because he reminded them of their grandfather. We started going to him when we realized that the cafe across the way was getting all the business, he was very generous with sweets for the kids. We later found out that this other cafe had made agreements with all the tourist operators whereby they had to take all the tourists there. We thought that was unfair so we only went to bestefar's or papous in Greek (probably spelt that wrong hehe) he sold Greek salad, grew the vegetables and made his own olive oil, feta cheese and olives, it was amazing!!! So we had that many times and many soft drinks there :-) The nearest supermarket is about 30m away. Back to the house, the gardens were beautiful with roses and the biggest lavender I have ever seen in a row of about 10 meters! There are fruit trees everywhere with peach, plum, Apple, fig aswell as a little allotment with tomatoes, melons, aubergine and many other things - everything tasted like heaven. There was also a large bbq and seating area on our terrace. I really can't say enough good things about the family running these villas or the house/gardens, we will definitely be back! So save us the same weeks in 2017 Nikos!!
