“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.
The largest town in Corfu, Corfu Town is the perfect place for a relaxing family beach vacation. Be sure to book your next holiday rental in Corfu Town to explore the stunning sights and gorgeous sandy beaches, as well as the bustling shops and markets.
About Corfu Town
The beaches here are the perfect place to relax or take part in watersports or snorkelling. But you’ll find plenty to do away from the coast too.
What to Do
On sunny days, stop in a bar on the Liston for a glass of the local Greek spirit, Ouzo, and a spot of people watching. Or just relax on one of the delightful sandy beaches. Halikounas and Issos are among the best, but there are plenty of other options to choose from!
Take to the water for a boat tour around the area. The views of the coast from the water are spectacular, or you could spot local marine life on a guided nature tour.

Lovely modern villa in a tranquil spot with amazing views
Villa Amaryllis is a lovely, clean, modern villa with a fantastic outside area and a great pool overlooking the local area. The villa is large and airy with good facilities.
I would definitely recommend a car, although the local bus service to Corfu Town was easy enough once you had worked out the time-table. There is a supermarket within walking distance and also a restaurant, but unfortunately it was closed during our stay. Sypros was a great help to us during our stay and it was reassuring to be met at the airport and shown to the villa. …
House Ourania in Organic Farm Bioporos
An amazing place - some welcome isolation in busy Corfu
What a wonderful stay! The house was very comfortable, spacious and airy, with 2 bathrooms. There is mosquito netting on the windows and air conditioning for those very hot days. The Vlassi family who run the farm and restaurant are wonderful, kind and really helpful. The food at the restaurant, (made by the owner Agathi), a few minutes walk from the villa, was some of the best we ate on the whole of our trip. The wildlife at the farm was great, binoculars were available for bird watchers and a telescope for looking at the abundant stars at night. There are lots of books and leaflets giving information on the wildlife in the area and local walks in Corfu. I would suggest that a car is a necessity here if you are staying more than a few days and want to get to the beaches beyond the lake. …

Villa Luce above Marina of Gouvia
We had an amazing holiday in this villa. Three couples, three children. we had loads of space, the pool, beautiful terrace with lounge areas, amazing views and a quiet spot to relax and properly forget all the daily grind. there is a big super market close by, well stocked, reasonably priced and with excellent local produce. Benito is a fabulous host and he cares about his guests having a good time so all of our expectations were met but we had even more than that. With a car, it is easy to get to any spot on the island but the view can only be experienced from this spot and you are sure to avoid the noise and the crowd that sometimes can be a bit of a pain closer to the coast, the main roads and towns and villages. Being elevated above the coast is a remarkable experience. Everything was superb and we highly recommend this villa! I'm sure at one point we will be looking to visit again.
Benito, thanks for having us!
Fabulous place - loved it!
We were absolutely delighted with this apartment. It is relatively expensive for Corfu Town but the location justifies the price IMO - above the Liston & overlooking the Spianada, with views to the Old Fortress, & very handy for exploring the whole town. There are good restaurants literally outside the door.
Our already late flight was delayed so we were ^very^ late arriving but that wasn't a problem - it's a very short taxi ride from the airport & our host was waiting to take us the short walk to the apartment. There are a couple of flights of stairs but they're not steep.
Opening the shutters to see the view on the first morning after a late arrival is amazing! The apartment itself is spacious & cool, & the double glazing very welcome at night when the Liston is noisy. Hosts are friendly & helpful. (The only (very slight) issue was that wifi didn't work in the front bedroom but we didn't bother mentioning it).
We would stay here again any time. …
