The Ionian Islands region
Villa “Emily” has a very strategic position. The property is located in the heart of the greenest island of Greece - Corfu. Built only 500 m away from the famous Achilleion Museum and about 500 m away from the Corfu Sea museum, it is an ideal starting point for exploring the island. The nearest beach is the beach of Benitses, which is reachable in 3 minutes by car or in 10-15 minutes on foot. From Benitses marina a lot of tourist ships start their trips to Paxos and Antipaxos.
Tourists can find a number of tavernas, bars, cafes, mini-markets and other shops in the centre of Benitses or in the village of Gastouri (Achillio), which is 2 km away from the villa. Kanoni and the Mouse Island (Pontikonissi) are 3 km far from Villa Emily.
The Corfu capital – Kerkyra – is only 10 km far from Villa Emily in northeast direction.
Gastouri (Achillio) is a picturesque village 11,5 km from Kerkyra town, which was built at a short direction from the sea. A gully divides it into two attractive settlements with traditional houses, narrow streets and arches. Two kilometers east of the village, on a small hill, is built the recently renovated Achilleion, the palace of the Austrian empress Elizabeth, or “Sissi”.
Benitses is a seaside village and one of the most popular of the island, where found ruins of Roman baths. In the village there is a maritime museum with interesting exhibits from the Mediterranean and other seas.
The village of Benitses is located near the centre of the island, just twelve km. south of Corfu town. Here, the sea and the mountains co-exist in harmony like many other things, including traditional singing and modern music, traditional food and international cuisine- the graphic chapels and the busy restaurants and bars.
In the last few years, Benitses has been part of the municipality of Achillion with a special place amongst other villages. Just 3 km away from Benitses there is the famous Achillion Museum (Sisi's Palace) and the well-known "Mouse Island of Corfu". Through the festive functions of the municipality, the local choir, the community center and the governing authority have organized festivals worthy of great admiration. Distinguished amongst these are the Resurrection Night, Saint-Marina celebration (16-17/07), The Baptism(06/01), and the Sardine festival in August.
Beside the crystal clear waters of the beaches, awarded with the EU Blue Flag, the new harbour is built with modern facilities, enhancing the village, the municipality and also the whole island.

"Unique place, cozy villa, nice and friendly landlords"
This was for first time, when we did not use a tour agency for our holiday abroad.
I was very worried about everything - how to rent a car, how to find Villa Emily alone, how to pay there, if everything with our reservation will be OK, etc.
Everything was just perfect!!!
The communication with the owners was great. They also organized for us a private taxi transfer from the airport, welcomed us very late in the evening, even they had prepared small cakes for us! On the next day the car company delivered the car , which we have asked for a month before arrival.
The villa features amazing view towards the east Ionian sea. The sunrise is just glamorous!
The house is not new, but very well maintaining. The garden was beautiful. The place is excellent, because in a few minutes by car you can reach the east and the west side of Corfu island. The most famous sightseeing of Corfu - Achileion Palace was 10 minutes on foot from the villa.
The only one negative aspect was the very steep road leading to the villa, because the house in located on the hill. If you travel by car that may not cause you any inconvenience.
In 2014 we were guests of Villa Emily again.
The same positive feedback for our second visit there, even much better!!!
I love Corfu! I will be back next year for sure!:-)

"The perfect place for summer relax!"
The place of villa Emilly is unique. It is situated on the hill, with cypress forest arround and with amazing sea view. The place is easy to access - it is very near to the road to the Achillion and near to the palace itself. The interior is very cosy and makes us feel just like we are home. The comfort and cleanness are excellent.
Drinking my morning coffe, enjoying the nice look at the blue sea and feeling calm breeze is incomparable pleasure. I can easily understand why princess Sissy had chosen this place for her summer retreat...
