Located in the centre of the bustling chaos of Kerkyra (Corfu Town), the Bella Venezia is an oasis of organised calm and old-world charm.
Having negotiated the town centre from every conceivable direction in search of Zambeli Street in our hired jeep, we were tired and very hot when we finally arrived for a brief (two-day) stay. Parking here is virtually impossible (in peak season at least)... so leaving it to the hotel reception to deal with was most welcome. We were greeted with a much-needed complementary drink from the comfortable bar and collapsed into the plush sofas in the lounge area.
Our room was smallish (as has been noted by other reviewers) but we were advised about this in advance and anyway, a town house hotel cannot be expected to have customised, standardised quarters. The room was spotless but we did find the beds a little on the hard side – though this is not uncommon in Greece. It was quiet and cool – the air conditioning being controlled by computer from the reception desk (impressive).
Breakfast was served in the quiet garden to the rear beneath an arbor with wisteria canopy. A great variety of comestibles was beautifully laid out in an adjacent summer house with very fresh produce – as has been mentioned by other reviewers.
The staff were charming, helpful – and characterful – throughout. We cannot recommend the Bella Venezia enough.
