What a stunning location! The villa is very comfortable, and a just a short walk down to the many tavernas and beaches in Paleocastritsa. The view from the upper terrace is breathtaking, and a comfortable spot to catch some sun and read. There is also a lovely garden under the shade of the olive trees.
Jane is super helpful and friendly, nothing is too much trouble for her and she knows everything about the area. She’s a lovely lady with lots of stories to tell, but her main concern is the comfort of her guests.
We love to walk, and walked miles along the donkey paths and roads between the villages. The views are always superb, with coffee shops and bars dotted along the way if in need of refreshment. We didn’t even bother renting a car, and took the bus to Corfu Town (a bargain at €2.5).
The weather was perfect, even though we visited mid October when it can rain.
We can’t recommend Jane and her Villa Stephanie highly enough, and hope to return very soon.
We always look for somewhere in a local village when we go on holiday rather than in a main tourist resort. Villa Nikos was perfect. A peaceful home, (and it really did feel like home,) in a quiet location but very close to Roda and Sidari with great shops and plenty to do and see. We had a “night out” in Roda then simply got a taxi back that evening and walked back along the back roads to Roda the following morning to collect our car. It was a pleasant walk.
The house itself is lovely, extremely well equipped and spotlessly clean with 2 good sized bedrooms, with plenty of storage. Everywhere is so tastefully decorated with quirky, personal touches which make it special. There was even a welcome pack of food and drink when we arrived.
We loved all the different sitting areas outside in the beautiful garden - again with lots of quirky detail and features. We were lucky enough to enjoy two perfect weeks of weather and we spent a lot of time in the garden, in fact we ate most of our meals outside. We would watch the sunrise in the morning from the patio area and see the little fishing boats set out. And in the evenings we would listen to the crickets and scops owls and watch for bats and a friendly toad.
The local beach is just outside the gate with plenty of sunbeds – and great swimming. There are two local tavernas in Astrakeri – with the Three Brothers literally steps away. The local supermarkets are excellent and good value.
One of the best things about Villa Nikos are Maggie and Des – and their family of four legged friends. They are warm, friendly and helpful, without being obtrusive, and we learnt a lot about Corfu life from them.
We would certainly recommend this property to anyone – you wont be disappointed.
