“so nearly but not quite.”
Reviewed 2 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

First some advice, the road, sorry track, to the villa is awful, we had a Megane (not a small car) and grounded it at several spots every time we went out, after the rains this winter I seriously think you will need a 4x4 or crossover to get access unless some serious work is done on the track. Second bit of advice, get Peter the manager to meet you at the airport, especially if you arrive after dark, good bloke and very helpful, the villa is not easy to find.
Don't expect a garden, at the moment outside of the villa resembles a bit of scrub land. The trees and bushes are planted but its going to take a couple of three years to look anything like a garden, oh and the huge black monster water tanks are a bit of an eyesore. Be aware there is NO TV of any type and the wireless is a bit hit and miss so if spending the evenings in take a few good books. Make sure you tell the owner you want the aircon on before you arrive and don't use heaps of water or there is a huge charge to refill the tank (how you are supposed to know its full when you get there is puzzling). No welcome pack supplied by the owner, although Peter did sort us out with some bits as we arrived very late, so either bring stuff or ask Peter very nicely, the nearest shop is a couple of miles away in the village but last thing you want to be doing after traveling is food shopping !
Now saying all this the villa itself is beautiful, modern, clean, bug free, fully kitted out kitchen wise, the pool was spotless and it is obvious the owner has spent good money on it. The view from the back of the villa toward Corfu Town is lovely and its location is very very peaceful. The neighbours are great and everyone in the village is really friendly.
So as the title says the villa package is so nearly there but not quite. If you want to spend this amount of money, and its not a cheap villa by any means, maybe there is better value for money on the island. PS we only holiday in villas and have rented loads (James, Unique Kefalonia, Owners direct, Villa Plus etc so we would consider ourselves as reasonably experienced.

“One of the best holidays we've ever had!”
Reviewed 2 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

I'd like to thank you for a wonderful holiday in your lovely Villa. We enjoyed the amazing view you have from your balcony. It was so picturesque in a morning and last thing at night with all the lights around the harbour, as we watched the cruise ships coming in and out. Our teenage children enjoyed the luxurious space in the Villa and chilling by the pool. The internet access was also a bonus as we could all keep up to date with friends and news.
The villa was up in the hills away from it all, which suited us, but within walking distance there was a small supermarket, restaurants, cafe and butchers. It was not too far away by car to visit anywhere on the island. Corfu in itself is a stunning location with many beautiful beaches, while Corfu town has an exciting atmosphere with elegant architecture.
