The Ionian Islands region
"Corfu is not a place you see. It is a place you feel. You give yourself over to its caresses.It is a soft and gentle place, to be rejoiced in. If it was just a matter of seeing things, wouldn't you be going to one of the other towns-the many towns-that are for the eyes only? Corfu needs more than your eyes: it needs the antennae of your senses, too, so that you can perceive the soul of all the things and people which go together to make up the painting which is Corfu" These words belong to well Known poet Pavlo Palaiologo.

"A Dream called Corfù"
Mali and her husband are two wonderful people who made our stay nothing short of enchanting . The apartment has every little more comfort and the care and dedication that devotes Mali , make ' us feel at home. The location in the center is one of the strengths of the Volta, close to everything: beach , public transport, local.
In short, the ideal place to stay and to be able to know the true and deepest identity ' of the "old town " Corfù. Thanks Mali , thanks George, definitely be back!

"Great apartment in the centre of Corfu Old Town"
A lovely "home from home" in the centre of the Old Town of Corfu. The apartment was incredibly clean and in good condition. It is comfortable and decorated in a tasteful, homely way. It is very centrally located, yet very peaceful and quiet at night. The little outdoor patio is a lovely addition and so is the air-conditioning, which we put to good use in the end of July! It is on the small side but will suit either a couple or a family with up to two young children perfectly - our kids, aged 7 and 5 loved it and felt very comfortable there. The owners are charming, genuine and helpful and we can't recommend it highly enough.

"A delightful base to enjoy and explore Old Corfu"
Volta is beautifully positioned in the Old Town - central but quiet with lots of excellent eating options and handy access to two supermarkets.
Mali, our host, was delightfully friendly and helpful. She kept us up to date with happenings of interest to us in Corfu. We particularly enjoyed our private and sunny courtyard.

"Cosy appartment at a perfect location"
The appartment looks very nice and cosy. Everything you need is there. We really liked the small terrace where we could sit outside to eat or drink something. The owner is also very friendly.
And the location is just perfect! In the middle of the old town of Corfu. So you can explore the city by foot and everything is in reach (shops, restaurants).
The location is also it's downside when you prefer a quiet night of sleep. You can hear people talking untill late at night, because there is a cafe next door.
The beds are ok, but not very good and when you take a shower the bathroom gets wet. The shower is also not that big.
We recommend this place for it's owner, the location, the private terrace and the interior design of the appartment. So if you stay for a couple of nights it's ok, but I wouldn't stay here for 1 or 2 weeks.

"Lovely appartment in the old town close to everything."
Family of 4 (2adults, 2 teenage girls).
We were met as planned near McDonalds, (after getting a taxi from the airport -10 euro) and shown to the appartment an easy 5 minute walk away. There were two flights of stairs up to the appartment but it posed no problems for us. It was right in the middle of the Old Town with the supermarket, bakery etc on the door step practically. Plenty of options for eating either formally or informal.
The appartment was very clean and comfortable with plenty of towels and linen. The kitchen was adequately supplied with pans etc.
It was safe for our teenage daughters to walk around on their own looking at the various shops.10 minute walk to the bus station to get local buses to nearby areas of Corfu. We hired a car for three days (recommended) and kept it overnight in a carpark nearby (3 euro).
A very enjoyable stay. I would love to return next year and explore the south of Corfu.

"Fantastic location / owner"
We have lived and worked in Corfu in the past. and have returned to the Island on four occasions since, but we have never stayed over night in Corfu town so we were excited about our four day stay in Corfu town as an extention to our week Ipsos.
We were not disopointed ! from our meeting with the owner (who was at the location on time not a natural thing if you are Greek.)
to the fantastic cenrtral location of the appartment and the very frendly approach of the owner.
We have recomended this appartment to friends and family on ojur return and would recomend it to any on e wishing to have a fantastic stay in Corfu town.

"Can wholeheartedly recommend."
Amalia went out of her way to make us feel at home in a well presented, well designed and cosy flat which resembled the layout of an old ship! The nautical theme was very appropriate. The location was exceptional as we were slap bang in the centre of the old town, a stone's throw from the main pedestrian thoroughfare and within 2 minutes walking distance of the vast majority of bars and restaurants, our favourite being Christa's creperie. We were able to use the courtyard of the flat for our breakfasts in the sunshine, beds were comfortable and our 8 and 11 year old kids loved their room upstairs.

"excellent location in corfu town"
This is a lovely little apartment in a fantastic location if you want to stay in Corfu Town, every thing you need is on your doorstep, great if you have teenagers as we found we could give them a key and they could go of on there own, to explore the town etc.
