We rented this villa as a group of 14 friends for exactly one week and basically could not have been luckier. The villa is absolutely stunning and left all of us more than enough personal space all the while enabling us to all sit together for meals and lounging by the pool. The rooms were put together with a lot of attention to detail and instantly made us feel at home. Additionally, the owner could not have been more helpful and more kind, constantly asking ask if we needed anything and recommending us the best towns and beaches to go spend the day, all the while giving us updates on the weather forecast, so we could plan accordingly. Along with the maid, who came in at whatever time suited us best in the morning, which was definitely more than ideal, Stamatis definitely ensured that evrey single thing ran smoothly, which, for the large group of young adults that we were, was more than helpful. Regarding the location of the villa, it not only provided the most beautiful view but the remoteness allowed us to have some privacy and enjoy playing music without having to worry about bothering any neighbors. Since we could not rent a car, we got bikes, which although is not the easiest of options to get around, made the holiday very pleasant. We were able to organize day trips to nearby cities and biking around definitely kept us in shape. It was also beautiful to be able to ride along the beaches of Roda and Achavari. When it came down to do grocery shopping, we would simply get taxis back up to the villa, since the hill from the main road to the house is definitely not one you can bike up. But for us it was never a problem and the taxi drivers, who ended up pretty much knowing us all, were extremely helpful. The bus system, which is perhaps not the most timely, was also a great way for us to join the main town of Corfu, where the old fortress is definitely worth a visit and where you can also join some very nice boat trips to the island of Paxos. It should probably be noted that we had someone who spoke Greek among us and that definitely facilitated any communications. All in all, our stay ended up being one of the best holidays we’ve ever had, with a good balance between relaxing at the villa, enjoying the pool and view and going on little adventures around the area with our bikes, discovering the little treasures of the island.
