Further details indoors

Villa Gecko is a detatched property consisting of an open plan living area on the ground floor with a well equipped, fully fitted kitchen, dining and lounge area leading to a large west facing patio overlooking the sea. There is a separate toilet (English plumbing!) and further east facing terrace, ideal for breakfasts, with views of the olive groves with the mountains of Albania in the distance.

The villa is air-conditioned and is equipped with a flat screen TV and DVD player with a selection of DVDs. There is also a small library of books which you are free to make use of. The only thing we ask is that the guide and cookery books are left at the villa. We have also provided a CD Player with iPOD doc and a music library.

The first floor has 2 double size bedrooms, and a large bathroom (English plumbing) complete with bath & separate shower cubicle. Both bedrooms have access to a large shared balcony, again with spectacular sea, island & sunset views.

Further details outdoors

The gardens are lawned and edged with Oleander and Honeysuckle. We have planted a variety of fruit trees and Mediterranean plants and flowers typical to the region.

(Note: due to the elevated nature of the gardens, young children should be appropriately supvised at all times).

The Villa is edged with stone paving and the driveway to the side provides ample parking space.

The Ionian Islands region

Corfu (or Kerkyra as it is called locally) is the Northernmost of the 7 main Ionian Islands, situated off the West coast of the Greek mainland & Albania, & close to the heel of Italy. Corfu's climate, with its relatively high winter rainfall, means that it is much greener to the eye than the barren sun-scorched rock images often associated with the Greek islands.

While very Greek (obviously), the architecture has a strong Venetian influence, particularly evident in Corfu Town, while it's proximity to Italy has influenced the food and menus available. For years now, Corfu has been a firm favourite with British and, as a result, the locals are very friendly and welcoming.


Arillas (in the North-Western corner of Corfu) is a small friendly holiday resort with a superb sandy Blue Flag beach (ideal for families) and a good range of bars and family-run tavernas. The pace of life is very relaxed through the day & continues much the same at night. (For more info. visit

For a change of scenery, to the South of Arillas is the resort of Agious Georgios (St. George NORTH), while to the North is the very family friendly beach of San Stefanos, each with their own individual character and both within easy reach. The nearby village of Afionas is generally considered the most beautiful on Corfu.

Inland from the coast is "real Greece", with many small natural villages, largely untouched by tourism, nestling within the olive groves, mountains & wooded valleys.

For the more energetic visitor, the island offers various diversions such as a full-sized golfcourse, Aqualand waterpark, the palace of Achilleon & the many sights of Corfu Town itself.

"Lovely villa in a great location"

We stayed at Villa Gecko at the end of September 12 and had a lovely stay. The villa itself has everything you'd need and is very comfortable and well laid out. It has some great views over Arillas and you can enjoy the sunset (a big benefit of being on the west side of Corfu) on the upstairs balcony. We had perfect weather, temperature was in the late 20s and sunny all week. If felt like it would continue well in to October! Thanks for a great stay.

Thank you for the positive comments! We are proud of The Gecko & (so far!) have had no negative opinions. We love it & others seem to feel the same way. Excellent.
