Little gem, tucked away at the end of a mountain track, views for miles, wonderful hosts
You will be absolutely delighted if you stay in Ermones, at one of the 7 villas at this property. That makes it sound like the villa might not be very private, but this is certainly not the case.
There are 7 villas, all owned by a very lovely Greek family, who live in the same location. This is brilliant because there is always someone available should you need them for anything. But also, their presence on site makes it feel very homely and welcoming. They are truly wonderful hosts.
Anyway, back to Ruby villa. Ruby villa has a lovely lay out. Two well proportioned bedrooms, with plenty of wardrobe storage and drawer storage. Good sided bathroom, also with plenty of storage space. Good sized kitchen / dining area, though the kitchen itself is a little small. We struggled preparing lunch and breakfast. We didn't even eat in for dinner, and had we done so think we would have really struggled for preparation area for a proper dinner (lunches were a simple salad, so not much preparation needed).
So the only down side to the villa was the kitchen, though it was well equipped- microwave, washing machine, coffee machine, fridge freezer all present.
For breakfast we ate out the front of the villa, with views overlooking the mountain region and the sea- wonderful. By lunch time the shade at the front had gone, and we had to eat out the back around the pool which was a bit of a pain having to take the table through to find some shade. We have suggested that perhaps the owners could provide an umbrella for future guests.
The 7 villas have access to the two pools. One of the pools is accessed straight out the back door of Ruby villa. Wonderful! The other pool is 30 seconds walk out Ruby's front door.
Both pools are of adequate size, and the pool outside the back door of a Ruby has a small baby pool attached to the main pool. Perfect if you have very small children.
The decor of the villa is beautiful. All decorated to a high standard. All matching and coordinated. Lovely soft towels :-)
There are two small dogs that live on site, as well as 4 cats.....they are all owned by the hosts. They are so friendly and funny- we as animal lovers loved having them as part of our holiday.
The villa is situated at the top of a mountain path which means no through traffic......very quiet, and peaceful. Fantastic! Loads of parking spaces for all of the villas.
It's about a 5 minute drive to the nearest local shop, and about a 10-15 minute drive to the nearest town with something more than a supermarket. Corfu town is about 30 minutes easy drive away.
Ermones beach is about 5 minutes drive away by car. There are 3 restaurants that are near the beach with fantastic views across the sea. In addition to these three local restaurants, there are so many brilliant restaurants a short drive away in various towns.
The beaches in this area are sandy (not pebbles) some of which are very busy and touristy, others which are much quieter.....you just need to do a bit of searching for the quiet ones.
All in all, this is a wonderful villa. Great location, great hosts, great facilities- you will have a wonderful holiday here......though a car is essential :-) …
