We stayed at Bioporos for 7days and nights. It was wonderful in all respects. The villas were comfortable and done in a traditional style with lots of space and most amenities incl a/c.
The farm is located a little off the track literally down a gravel road amongst olive groves, fig trees, grape vines and bramble bushes. The villas are a little further down from the farm house run by the owners Agathi and Kostas.
The farmhouse has a restaurant where Agathi cooks lovely traditional Corfiot food which is all organic and beautifully cooked. She also runs cooking classes where she teaches how to cook some of these dishes like Sofrito and Pastisades as well as how to make sour dough bread and olive oil soap. They also have their own organic honey which sells at a very reasonable price.
We ate there most nights as the food was delicious and they were very good at accommodating our children's dietary intolerances. The farm is very close to a nature reserve with a lake and nearby beaches. It is about 40 mins drive south from Corfu town. There are very nice traditional villages nearby which you should visit like Agios Mathaios.
If you want to visit a beautiful Greek island but not run the package holiday gauntlet this place is just perfect for a family holiday. Agathi and Kostas love children and nothing is too much trouble.
this is a little piece of paradise hidden away in rural corfu. my husband and I were so warmly welcomed and looked after during our stay by Agathi and Kostas, we felt like we were staying with old friends. the location is simply stunning: animals roaming free, acres of olive trees and a beautiful view from the veranda of the lake and beyond out to sea. the highlight of our stay has to be the food: Agathi's organic home cooking meant that there was never a need to venture out in the evenings to other restaurants: nothing on the island would beat the food at bioporos both taste wise, health wise and value for money. we hope to return again in the future.

Bioporos is a beautiful and peaceful refuge from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The house was very comfortable and well equipped, the landscape is lush with olive groves, and the view over Korission Lake and the sea is extraordinary. The Vlassis are wonderful hosts and make you feel like you are a part of their family. Aghati invited us for two impromptu cooking lessons where she taught us how to make a traditional Greek savory tart and baklava. When you eat in their restaurant, you are guaranteed the best of the best. Everything she serves is organic and most of the products come from their farm. Bioporos is a true gem on this gorgeous island and we cannot recommend it enough!!
