About this location

The Ionian Islands region

The Greek islands are renowned for their beauty and facinating culture. Corfu is the nearest island to Britain and is very green. It enjoys hot summers and mild winters. The landscape is varied and dramatic, with spectacular vistas of pebble bays, olive clad hills and turquoise seas.


Spartilas has a bakery, opening every morning for fresh bread, mini market for essentials, a well stocked pharmacy, traditional bar where locals meet, a snack bar and a cafe. It has remained unspoilt by tourism and has a charm of its own. There is an abundance of eating places to discover along the coastline or further inland in the traditional villages, including several excellent tavernas within 10 minutes drive of the villa. For a special evening, take a free boat taxi from Kalami bay and experience the delights of the coastline at night, arriving at any one of the famous and ever popular tavernas of Agni bay. Alternatively, book a boat trip to Corfu town for the evening and soak up the Greek culture with a walk along the Liston followed by a meal. For those who prefer to cook and dine at the villa, we have provided an extensive range of cookware and utensils. There are many large supermarkets along the main coastal road and excellent butchers near Ipsos. There is a very good fish market held daily in Corfu town near the old fort. With its Venetian influence, Corfu town is a fascinating place to visit, especially the old town, filled with tiny alleyways and artisan shops spilling onto the cobbles. The famous Liston is most atmospheric in the cool of the evening, where you can shop for leather goods, local crafts, and jewellery or enjoy a coffee and soak up the culture. There are beautiful churches, often hidden away, and interesting museums and ruins to visit. For water lovers, there are two large water parks on the island, both within 30 minutes drive of the villa. One is in Acharavi on the north coast and the other is inland at Agios Ioannis. If you are interested in horse riding, there are several English speaking stables within reach of the villa. The nearest ATM for cash is along the coast road at Ipsos 7km.

"Great views from a very remote location but an unpleasant aftertaste"

We visited Villa Petalutha in a group that comprised 2 family's of 4 with kids aged 8-10. The villa is new and incredible location. The views from the pool and the balcony area are stunning and t… More

The end of the penultimate paragraph gives away the motivation for writing a review of this nature.
We have never had to withhold any security deposit before, but sadly after this rental, our lovely villa was certainly not left as anyone would hope to find it. We were saddened by the lack of respect shown. We incurred costs in excess of the £125 withheld to replace spoiled or broken items, restore the travertine floor after un-wiped spillages, fund double our normal laundry bill and pay the staff an extra two hours cleaning.

Spartilas has a population of 658 and is a thriving community. It is a traditional Greek village and is on the main route for visitors to the monastery at Mount Pantocrator. The road from the coast to Spartilas does have many bends but it is wide and visibility of oncoming traffic is clear. In fact, it is far safer than the faster coastal roads that often encourage overtaking. It is a popular and well- travelled route because of the exceptional views. The resorts of Ipsos and Barbati, on the east coast or Acharavi in the north, are only a 20 minute drive.

Whilst wasps do come and drink from the pool at certain times of the day, they are certainly no worse than anywhere else on the island and we have had no reports of anyone being stung. There are very few mosquitoes as they prefer the lower and more humid coastal areas.

Our guest book is full of appreciative comments about the villa and its spectacular location. The peace, tranquillity and privacy are a huge part of its attraction.

"Heaven on earth"

An absolutely incredible villa in an incredible location. The only problem with it is that the villa's so nice you might not want to ever leave! There were 7 of us, all late 20s/early 30s and we all agreed it was one of the best holidays we've ever been on.
