All in all, a fabulous time and I already am thinking about coming back.
This was my first time in Corfu, and I wasn’t sure what I was going to find. The apartment is really cute, well thought out and designed. I stayed by myself and think it was ample space for two, but a real squeeze for any more than that. The bed was very comfortable and the shower room though small was perfectly formed with a good hot shower! I loved the two outdoor spaces and a little courtyard off the bedroom with an outdoor shower. There was a good flow of air through the apartment which created a lovely breeze and the windows push right back into the wall to make the whole apartment feel open and spacious. There are ample sockets and reasonable WiFi. The kitchen is basic but modern and well equipped and easy to rustle up a light meal. The apartment is in a complex of other apartments cheek by jowl but is pretty and very private. If you arrive after dark, the signage or lighting on the path to the apartment isn’t particularly great. If you park in the allocated bay, keep the low wall to your right and head towards the run of steps at the end of the car park. Walk up these and turn left. Follow the up and down path, past the large olive tree, then the apartment is down a short steep flight of steps to your left. You’ll recognise it from the photo. If I come again, I’ll leave my suitcase at the bottom of the steps at the end of the car park, open up the apartment, open the patio doors and walk straight down to the car park to lug my stuff. It’s quite mosquitoey in Corfu so come prepared with plug in deterrents. Those worked brilliantly with windows open and shutters pulled across to create a breeze. Follow your nose for the beach... if you walk down to the beach and turn left, the Nautilus Beach bar has sun loungers and a lovely pool, which are free ( certainly at this time of year) and the food is tasty when eaten sitting at a table in the shade of the olive trees and wisteria. I really enjoyed my stay in Olga’s Studio, and was looked after very well. Car hire was arranged by the same company that look after the apartment, and everything was made very easy. I’d recommend a car- Corfu is a beautiful place, taxis are expensive and the car made cheap flights viable. All in all, a fabulous time and I already am thinking about coming back.
Very nice stay in a rental consistent with photos and descriptions, everything was perfect!
Séjour très agréable dans une location conforme aux photos et descriptions, tout était parfait ! Réactivité et professionnalisme de l’agence qui peut même ce charger de votre location de voiture (qui si vous avez un souci le professionnalisme du loueur est exceptionnel , par expérience) Emplacement très calme mais nous étions début mai ! Quand à l’éloge de l’hospitalité grèque , elle n’est plus à faire...
Great place to stay!
Great place to stay! Very nice beautiful and clean beach with restaurants and shops just minutes away. Sofronios is a top host. Communicative, friendly and does care about his guests. Gave us many tips and advices. Top man! the apartment is situated near Barbati beach (1 minute away), local shops and restaurants. It's very clean, stylish and has everything you need for a good holiday. Just amazing! And yes, you can even rent a car from the host which is very convenient!

Highly recommended. The studio was really cool and clean. Perfect for a couple. Has a nice terass, and parking is provided. If you don't have a vehicle you can walk down the street and get to the most beautiful beach in Corfu, Barbati Beach. Rent a sun bed. You can easily take the bus into Corfu town or Ipsos if you want to. And a grocery store is nearby with all the basic stuff you need. Great stay, we loved it.
Once we had found where our studio was as the signage only went up after we arrived, the property was good, nicely decorated, well designed, airy and comfortable. The bathroom was very compact with not enough hooks to hang things on but plenty of hot water which was a bonus! The shower doors were rather flimsy. The beds were comfortable and a good amount of cupboard space. We found the kitchen area work surface small as taken up by the wooden plate drainer so not much room to prepare food. Good oven and hob and large fridge but the pans were huge! Could do with another small pan. Also not enough mugs and glasses. The cafetière was old, cracked and leaked. Could also do with a tray to carry stuff to the outside table. The table and chairs in the photo weren’t there ! It would have been more pleasant to have been able to eat in this garden area as the other table area only looked out onto a roof !! This could be improved with some geraniums in pots rather than just boring green bushes in tubs. The maid only came with clean sheets and towels on day 6 of our 10 day stay. Eos stated that the studio would be cleaned twice in a 7 day stay including the first day, so really there should have been 2 visits. The kitchen bin was emptied but the extra bag of rubbish and bottles in the under sink cupboard weren’t taken away. We didn’t really want to have to stop at the stinking overflowing Grundon bin areas but had to dispose of rubbish twice during our stay throwing bags onto the heap. The welcome pack was just a bottle of water. It should have at least included the washing up liquid ! However we enjoyed our stay and the area generally was pleasant and quiet which was great!
Hello from Eos.
Thank you very much for your candid review of your recent stay in Olga's Studio.
Your feedback is extremely valuable to us, as we strive to improve with each individual stay.
I greatly appreciate your comments about aspects found wrong or issues that would need a serious look, on owner’s behalf and I am really sorry to hear of all these matters after you had gone home.
Already your points of view have been handed to the owner and we will check if they will be accordingly utilised, on our next property check.
It would be – finally - such a pleasure to personally welcome you back into one of the properties we are looking after and make your holiday one to remember!
Until then, I wish you a wonderful time and all the best.
With much appreciation,
The Eos Team
Nearest resort is Barbati, built on the side of mount Pantokrator, with a gorgeous beach, Barbati has evolved from an obscure village into a delightful, quiet remote beach resort . With enough taverns and coffee shops it has become a popular destination for romantic couples and families looking for some rest and relaxation. There is nothing extraordinary about this place, but it is a place which is good in many things.
Barbati has got decent places to eat and drink, a very well organized beach, 30min drive from town and just 15-20 minutes from beaches like Agni and Kalami.
If you are looking for a little relaxation, a bit of fun and a bit of luxury, you are at the right place.
