A perfect place for our family holiday - deserves the 5 star rating
We had an excellent holiday at the house and everything about the visit confirmed the 5 star rating that Spiros and his family maintain.
Spiros is very friendly and welcoming host, and because we had arrived on the late plane from the UK, he met us at the airport and his mother had so kindly left a roast dinner for us in the oven. Immediately one feels welcomed and relaxed.
The house, the garden and the pool all look as good in reality as the photos show you. The big tree providing both shade and ambience.
As stated in the other reviews, it is true that one should hire a car. However, this is to make the most of the island and visit the sites and a variety of beaches. It is a lovely island, and even the trip to the nearby town to buy the groceries - which was very picturesque - felt like a tourist morning out.
In the immediate area, there is a nice beach just 10 minutes walk, shared only by those staying nearby, and another beach only 5 minutes drive. For both, with a Westerly view, you can sit and enjoy a sunset and watch the sun slowly set right into the ocean.
As well as travel around to other beaches, take boat trips and visit Corfu town, it is great some days to just spend a whole day at the house, around the pool, the dinner table or the games table with the family.
After a day out, it just felt so good to come back down the lane to the house, like we were coming home.
All of our teenage children loved this place, and the holiday quickly went into the top favourite holidays remembered.
We rarely take holidays in the same place, generally choosing to try a new place each year.
However, the house and hospitality of Spiros and his family have made us consider a change in policy.
Thank you Spiros and family for your hospitality.
See you again! …
