“A brilliant private couple get-away” Our review is that it was totally private, the owner (Vassillis) was fab as was his staff including the cleaning and support service received. We organised a pick up from airport via Vallissis and all went to plan (none of the usual stress on arrival and trying to find accommodation).
The local village was quaint and not commercialised. Yet, you could get an English breakfast if you wanted, A local bus service avail from the village to Corfu town. Fresh fish caught on the day provided in a couple of seaside restaurants and homemade taramasalata to die for! Downside, albeit minor, the walk down to the village was fine, but coming back was a bit uphill (specially with bags of supermarket provisions) but good for leg and thigh strengthening. But to note for those with walking difficulties. However, scooters or cars can be hired in Messonghi - but we didn't bother. The cooking facilities in the accommodation were fine for breakfast and lunch, but just two hobs, no oven (but I see this as an upside as out for meals every night). Fridge really kept beers warm (mattered more)
Mozzi's in the evening on the Island, but an expected hazard given sun and temperatures (to note though, they were silent biters, not usual Mozzi buzz heard) spray managed this. Take Mozzi spray and all okay.
Wifi was good. Tv was good, even had Euro football matches. Bed really comfortable.
If you are looking for a private couple get-away, to totally relax, connect and avoid crowds and the hotel regime, we cannot recommend highly enough! 5 stars and thanks to Vassillis and his team.
The northernmost of the the Ionian islands, Corfu is the perfect family-friendly destination, with great facilities and incredible views up and down the entire length of the island. Book your holiday rental in Corfu and experience a little slice of Greek life in some of the most incredible surroundings.
Perfect for the whole family, there's plenty to see and do on the island for all ages.
What to Do
You can laze for days on the south side of the island, where the beaches are sandy, golden and generally pretty quiet. Or hire a boat and explore some of the more remote parts of the island, where you’ll find some incredible beaches.
Families will love Aqualand water park, the perfect place to make a splash with the kids.

Achillion Luxury Corfu Villa
Villa was clean and tidy upon arrival and is nicely furnished throughout with plenty of space. The views are fantastic with multiple balconies to really take advantage of this. Sound proofing is good with the windows closed which is essential as the airport is reasonably close by, something we actually enjoyed as it's quite cool watching planes land while you're poolside.
The owner Eleni was extremely helpful before and during our stay and we had everything that we needed. She was also quick to respond to any questions.
The location is generally good with several restaurants within 15 minutes walk and a bus stop, car rental place and small shop (owned by the angriest man in Greece, have correct change or prepare to be shouted at!). There's also a tour organiser opposite the shop which was super convenient as a way to see some of the island.
All in all it was a really nice stay and highly recommended, if I had to offer one very small criticism, it's that the power sockets are in really strange places so you'll need an extension cord or be prepared to charge your phone away from your bedside over night.
Thanks for a wonderful stay! …
Villa Gaia, the ultimate luxury in Corfu
Perfect in every way
The Villa was perfect for our family staying in Gouvia to celebrate our sons wedding.
The Villa was perfect for the occassion and the views are spectacular. The Villa has everything you couold need to enjoy your holiday. Benito and Ivaylo were more than accommodating and ready to help with all our needs. Everyone was more than happy with their rooms and all the facilities including a fantastic pool and outside area. The only problem with this Villa is you dont want to leave it and so you could miss visiting some of the beautiful coastline of Corfu. Would love to return again.
Spectacular Villa, even better than the pictures …

Pretty House X 4 - 5 people in a amazing environment besides the beach in Corfu
Peaceful and Spiritual Retreat from Reality
This house is in an amazing position, within walking distance from a lovely private beach, with others nearby. We seldom sat on a beach with anyone else - which is the way we like it!
The house was spotlessly clean and quite well equipped, although a couple of sharp knives would have been appreciated, plus perhaps some more mirrors. The only one was over the bathroom cabinet, so I didn't actually see my legs for three weeks! A shower on the wall instead of hand-held would be nice too. The beds were comfy, the garden sweet and with plenty of outdoor furniture.
Lefkimmi itself is a lovely place with several very good tavernas and extremely friendly people.
We would definitely consider returning to this unique, out of the way and peaceful retreat. I have already recommended it to other like-minded friends. …
