A very generous holiday let, and a very generous host. Stayed there for a week in June 2017 – son and daughter in their twenties looking for sun and a rest, as also their parents. Lovely house on top of a hill towards the end of a little country lane. We will return – probably with the rest of the family.
15 mins by car from Corfu Town, surrounded by hills, views and greenery, it sports three double bedrooms (en suite) with a fourth double settee bed (not in the main lounge, but adjacent to lower level bedroom). It is one of five properties (two with pools) in a private compound lying just behind the coastal hills running along the eastern side of the island south of Corfu Town. Two kitchens, barbecue, swimming pool, lawns and shade trees, central heating (yes, for winter), air conditioning in most rooms, more than enough balconies to stay in or stay out of the sun, and wifi and TV for those who cannot bear to be cut off.
The place has all mod cons, for all intents and purposes you are not over-looked, sleeps eight comfortably, and with a full house you would hardly need to leave the premises – there’s a medium sized supermarket at the end of the country lane (and a bicycle to get you there and back if need be). We ate by the barbecue or in Corfu Town, visited the museums and galleries, and even made a day trip to Albania. Our host, Spiros, couldn’t be more helpful. He met us at the airport on arrival, guided us to the house, and settled us in. He left us with a local mobile so that we could contact him directly should we need for anything, he organised a full house clean and linen change halfway through our stay, and met us at the crack of dawn on our day of departure to say goodbye. Altogether, a great holiday – and rest.
Excellent modern and clean accommodation. Very private. Large, deep pool. Helpful owner/manager. Close to supermarket, town and 20 minute drive to lovely beaches. Handy central location. Downstairs bedroom would suit grandparents or teens as 2 floors away from the other 2 bedrooms. Table tennis as appreciated by our 4 children. Would recommend to couples or families who want to be close to action but enjoy peace and privacy. The views are very impressive from every window. BBQ area is shaded by olive tree and fresh herbs were a lovely bonus.
This villa was perfect for us. We are a family of 5 with three teenagers. The villa was modern and spacious.
Spyros, the owner, met us at the airport and guided us to the villa and was helpful and friendly throughout. He thoughtfully provided us with a Greek mobile phone to make it easier to contact him and to cut down on our call charges.
The villa has lovely views across the hills. It is close to the airport so quite convenient. The villa is shielded from the airport by a large hill which means that there is virtually no noise from aeroplanes.
The pool is great - we spent a lot of time by the pool relaxing. It was very hot during our stay so we made good use of the air conditioning in the villa. Also, little touches like the table tennis table were good for us.
There is a good supermarket just down the road from which we got a lot of our supplies. Also, Lidl, in Corfu town was only 15-20 mins drive.
Being central, the villa is a good base for exploring both the North and South of the Island.
The place is simply magic. Clean place, excellent behaviour from the owner.worth every sent.!Sure i will come back.
