Beautiful property, location, and view. Nice little "supermarket" very close with nearly everything you might need and close to a small village with everything else. I was alone but it would be perfect for two couples. Staff support was excellent: Cleaning lady twice in a week and the owner's step father to help with everything else. He was a gem!
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.
