The house was lovely. The views of Albania and into Kassiopi were beautiful every day. The pool was still warm enough for the kids to use! The electricity and internet was fine. The villa is equipped to a high standard.
Booking was really simple and flexible. We wanted to stay another day which wasn’t a prob. Julie met us and responded promptly to questions. We went at the end of October and Kassiopi was effectively closed after the Ochi day celebrations.
A car is a must and the track leading up to villa was steep. Driving from Corfu island to Kassiopi was often interrupted with lorry drivers trying to do daft things when the road was covered in crushed olives and rain slick! But the roads weren’t too busy at all.
We went to Acharavi for supermarket shopping and a bite to eat every so often. The beach in Avlaki was deserted and even in October we were able to swim in the sea.
There was only one electricity power down which was ‘planned’ for the north of the island ; I’d advise to keep your mobiles powered up at all times as we got complacent! The only other issue was Corfu’s litter collection problem.
We used Corfu based Fairdeal car hire (excellent service).
Would we come again - yes!
We had a fantastic week in Kassiopi. The Villa was beautiful, spacious, clean, well equipped and comfortable, tastefully decorated and light and airy. The "wrap around" balconies on each floor give each bedroom its own terrace and the pool and sun terraces are superb. The large french windows in the front facing bedrooms let you wake up to a stunning view over Imerolia bay and to Albania, we had the bonus of seeing dolphins in the bay one evening.
Don is an excellent host, helpful, friendly and responsive to any requests, his restaurant in the village is really good, with traditional Greek dishes and a wonderful position on the harbour looking over to Albania. The village is a pleasant 10 minute walk along the seafront, and even in late October, it was busy with plenty of atmosphere.
There are many absolutely beautiful coves with shingle beaches and clear water between Kassiopi and Corfu town and sandy beaches to the North.
I will definitely return to Corfu and to Dons Villa.
