very cosy apartment just in the middle of Corfu Town on the 2. floor in a quiet area with no traffic or unpleasant noise. The only sound was from the churchbells which just was nice. Close to everything such as busstation, market and harbour for boattrips and a lot of restaurants/cafees and shops. Supermarket just round the corner. We have no complaints at all and can higly recommend the apartment.

“Great location and very attractive apartment”

Reviewed 10 Apr 2012

We stayed for a week here in Easter week and it was lovely. The apartment was clean and had everything we needed. The apartment is right in the middle of shops, restaurants and bars and the small maze of streets were exciting and restaurants were very tasty. The Easter celebrations right outside the apartment were really special! Only annoying thing was the church bells at 8am in the morning- we are not early risers!

“UNIQUE EXPIRIENCE”
