With villa Regina Rosa we definitely hit the jackpot. The house is amazing (much better than most hotels in Greece to be honest). Best three things: the seemingly endless space –seven bedrooms, two huge living rooms, and lots of porch and balcony space; the magnificent view over the shore and near Albania; one of the best kitchens I’ve ever seen. Given those things, the swimming pool and garden almost fade in the background. And as if the gorgeous house isn’t enough, the service and help provided are also top-notch – it’s a great balance between less service than a hotel so you can feel homely, and enough not to worry about much of anything on your vacation.
There are some issues with the location of the house – It is very noticeable from afar but not so easy to find when you are close, especially given Sfakera’s winding (if I am to be loose with the word) streets. Also, the price for the view is a street to the yard gate that would make most normal cars shudder, and made me feel like climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, when I braved it on foot. Those things are very easily solved, with a first visit and a good car. Otherwise the location is great, because it’s 5 minutes by car from the beach and the two coastal villages, while being much more secluded and peaceful.
All in all, the place is great and I highly recommend it to anyone whose heart is set on Corfu. If you are bringing a large party that is a much better place than any hotel and can make your holiday special.
