La Corfiota Beach Villa & Apts

Please note our rates and calendar are kept up to date so if the dates you are interested in booking are shown as available, best is to go ahead and book rather than wait for our reply. Of course you can always send us a booking request alongside any other questions and we will be happy to answer and accommodate you; also for booking stays of 3 weeks + or to hire more than 2 apartments together. In the event of restricted availability or on number of occupants at one unit, we will offer alternative unit options.

INTRODUCTION & LOCATION:

WELCOME to La Corfiota Villa Beach Residences & Apartments; a small charming complex of a House Villa with apartments, holiday residences, laid out over 1.7 acres of land in local stone, manicured grass and beautiful plants, flowers, ideal for couples (great privacy), group of friends and families. It's idyllically situated a mere 25 meters from the long stretch of sandy beach and clear aquamarine sea of the preferred holiday village of Agios Gordios, on the west coast of the isle of Corfu, 15 km from Corfu town and Corfu airport. Here the blue of the sea meets the blue of the sky on your doorstep, the 1,7 acres land on which the Villa house stands provides privacy and tranquillity amongst sea and mountain views summer flowers and manicured lawns.

The complex enjoys a premier-unique position, so close to the beach and the end of the village road. The centre of the buzzing yet laid-back town is a three minute stroll away, shops and mini-markets, lounge bars / cafes and tavernas - restaurants, all boast fresh local produce, aromas and the well recorded warm Greek hospitality. Yet La Corfiota’s almost hidden position and lay out allow privacy, relaxation and are a joy to children. The views, the vegetation, the sound of birds and the waves of the sea, offer unmatched peace and tranquillity.

Summer options are endless here, from watersport activities, to boat outings, hiking up the mountains between cypress, olive and lemon trees, visiting neighbouring towns, simply lounging in the sun or enjoying the quiet view from the privacy of your own veranda or balcony.

Only one unbuilt plot property separates it from the beach and is neighboured by only one low key holiday property, hence enjoying empty green spaces, calm and privacy, allowing for leisure and relaxing times for parents and kids who can safely play in the well-kept gardens (one in the front, one at the back), while being literally steps off the centre of one of the best beaches in Corfu (calm turquoise water).

CAPACITY, LAYOUT & ACCOMMODATION OPTIONS

La Corfiota Villa offers various accommodation options for you as a family, your group of friends, you as a couple or as a solo traveller. The Villa maisonette on the first floor and the garden apartments and studio below, are the main part of the Villa House which is laid out around a beautifully manicured back and front garden with a natural well and trees.

The Maisonette that sleeps up to 7-8 people, the 1 bedroom w lounge (2 rooms) garden apartments that sleeps up to 4 people, or up to 6 if combined with the studio apartment (forming a 2 bedroom unit) or up to 8 when combined with another adjacent one bedroom apartment (forming a 3 bedroom unit).

All properties provide various amenities and standards of comfort, ample space in and out, Wi-Fi and fitted kitchens for self-catering purposes, also parking in front of the gated complex.

The complex offers front and back gardens and an outdoors shower rom. All apts offer patios-verandas-terraces with mountain, garden and sea views. The garden apartments except the studio have their bedrooms on the east (mountain) side of the Villa House and their living area-lounge-kitchenette and garden patios face the sea side- west, offering superb sunset views. They have front windows which allow the sun to bathe the apartments and allow an al fresco feel and views even from inside the units, with the door and windows open.

The Villa MAISONETTE comprises of two double bedrooms and a twin room (perfect for children), two full bathrooms, open plan kitchen, large living and dining areas, fireplace, huge terrace and three balconies, allowing superb sea and mountain views.

It accommodates 4 people in the two air conditioned double bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms and 2 people in the twin room.

Prices for the two bedroom accommodaton are based on 5 people sharing and for the three bedroom accommodation are based on 6 people sharing. For extra occupants, your availability quote will add extra guest charges. A 7th person can be included in your quote for the maisonette apartment and he/she will be accommodated at one of the two couches. The 8th person we will suggest to place at a studio apartment for the same quoted price, unless you desire to also use the couch.

The GARDEN APARTMENTS at the ground level are of more modest, yet functional, spacious and comfortable (among the largest in the village) and can accommodate 2, 4, 6 or 8 people, as a studio, a one bedroom unit, a two bedroom unit or a three bedroom units (when are rented adjacently)

The STUDIO garden apt of 30 m, accommodates 2 people, but you can obtain a quote for 4 and you will be placed at a one bedroom apt.

The GARDEN APARTMENTS are decorated with solid oak wood furniture and kitchen cabinets and with white wood wardrobes, closets. They have local stone paved patios with white wrought iron furniture, pergolas and sun umbrellas for shade.

SERVICES:

Housekeeping service is twice a week (cleaning and fresh towels) while bed sheets are serviced weekly or every 5 days, as needed.

Concierge services are available upon request (massage, boat and car rental, excursions, cooks etc).

The resort of AGIOS GORDIOS boasts a prime middle island, scenic, west coast location, 15 kms or 25 mins drive from Corfu town and Corfu airport. It is a small, very safe and friendly beach resort, ideally suited for couples, families and young children. It is named after a Roman Christian Saint, one of the two small churches on the village. Being a relative small resort, Agios Gordios, despite its middle island location, remains an unspoiled area of Corfu due to relative strict local building permits.

The resort is overlooked by spectacular rock formations and sheer cliffs plunging into the crystal clear waters. A gigantic rock like a huge monolith, dominates the bay; the mythical ‘Ortholithi’ is a trademark rock rising out of the sea. The beach has a long shelf, so you can wade out quite a long way. The tides are quite gentle - ok for the kids.

Agios Gordios has a true village atmosphere; with its small fruit and vegetable shops, mini markets, café-bars, a patisserie, car and motor bike rentals, a medical care centre, cash machines, clothes, jewellery and tourist novelty shops, family run restaurants, positioned along the village road – high street and on beach front. They offer a wide range of cuisines at a level of service, quality and prices to meet most budgets, including traditional Greek, Seafood, Mexican, Italian. Most beach tavernas and all day café lounges, are at the south side along the beautiful sandy stretch.

To the north end of the beach a shingle and pebble beach unwinds for about a km with plenty of possibilities for being on your own. If you have children, possibly you/they will enjoy most the centre (where we are at) and south side of the sandy beach which slopes gently and is shallow for quite a way out. The beach (almost on our door step) is one of the most known - appreciated; a great beachfront curve ending at a steep craggy islet; it offers various water sports and scuba diving.

The nearby villages of Sinarades, Kato Garouna, the fishing villages of Pentati, Fiorula port, Paramonas Beach and Pavliana are all within walking, hiking or biking distance. There you can meet and spend time with the locals and sample their home-made wine and food.

To sum it up, Agios Gordios - a good base for walkers and nature lovers too - is a real find. Because of the physical layout - nature of the area it can't be spoilt by over-building. It is beautiful and as long as you are not looking for discos and pubs, this is the place for you, especially if you appreciate beautiful scenery, a wonderful beach and genuine hospitality

About Konstantinos (Kostas) Trivizas - Aeolus Hospitality

Property Manager for L.H.M.D.S. /Aeolus Hospitality which manages this property; also manages the needs / consults owners of upscale hospitality business. I am based in London, UK and travel often to Corfu where i spent time on the property as needed.

Konstantinos (Kostas) Trivizas - Aeolus Hospitality purchased this villa in 1983

Why Konstantinos (Kostas) Trivizas - Aeolus Hospitality chose Corfu

I spent the summers with my grandmother (the first Corfiota of the property) as a child on the original smaller family house, one of the very first few on the village then ('60s) and i have some great memories of the beach and of the village,mbin as it transfromed from a hippies outpost then (no electricty or public water) to a couples and families beach resort from the late '80s. My parents bought the adjacent land and invested in raising a new building in the late '80s. I and my sister continued to invest from the mid '90s to the mid 00s. The maisonette was completed in the early '00s. Cozy rooms / lay out and indoor spaces, large verandas that open out to mountains to the east and to the immediate sea to the west, constructed with wood and wrought iron and with respect to the environment, the complex is a green haven in the heat of summer.

I hope you will enjoy it along with the garden apts and the gardens, in their private, calming setting and unique location.

What makes this villa unique

- 35 mrs from the centre beach, yet it is not exposed direclty to it, is quite private, guarded by tall trees and neighboured with green spaces, offering superb sea and mountain views from all sides. - A tasteful small villa and apartments complex (only a few units are used) built around a manicured garden with beautiful local plants, an outdoors shower area to rinse, a natural well.

- It is located on the right (north) side of the beach, where buidling zoning laws are strict, hence much more green space around it than residences on the south side. Its also away from the bust of the village where most apartments, shops and restaurants are positioned along the main road, yet is a mere 35 m walk to that road.

- It offers two levels-styles of accommodation, both offering good value for money. The maisonette apartment offers high acommodation standards, facilities, as well as service, provided by the onsite property manager. The Garden Apts are more modest, all habut all apts benefit from the spacious lay out of the complex.

- Elderly people and/or people with disabilities appreciate the proximity of the complex to the beach and to the village road with no obstacles or slopes at all. The garden apartments also dn't require any steps climbing.

- The complex offers parking (very difficut to achieve in other properties) at the road-path leading to the gate of the complex (please park against the wall to allow access of another car passing). Yet the immediate access to the beach means that no car is really needed, unless for excursions around.

- There is one caretaker -the manager's mother after whom the property is named, La Corfiota, meaning the idiginous Corfu woman - who visits the complex, hence the maisonette and the apts on the ground floor offer much privacy.

- it can accomodate large families or parties; the maisonette with the apts below it, accomodates up to 16-17 people, or up to 10 people if three adjacent garen only units/apartments are used.

beautiful place with the best owner

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay during July 2016. The vila had everything you needed : nice and clear apartments, 3 minutes from the beach, wifi and of course kind and hospitable owner this property. Mr. Kostas, the owner was really friendly and I think this made the trip a special one. The price was extremely reasonable for what you got and the location was great . Agios Gordious itself is brilliant for the kinds because of long sandy beach and whether in July is really good.

I really recommend this apartments for the families with teenagers and recommend La Corfiota as a resort ! Have a good stay and nice holiday!

Villa la corfiata adios gordis, Corfu

  • 4 of 5

Our stay in villa La Corfiata in Adios Gordis makes our vacation complete and relaxed. This villa lays direct to the sea(50 m) and also to the main street off Adios Gordis whit al his restaurants, supermarkets and bars. The villa has all the comfort that you have at home and makes that there is a relaxed feeling when you stay with 4 adults in one house. One other thing is that the manager and also owner of the villa and appartments stays on this complex, so when there is a problem or a question, the manager Kostas is near by and very helpfull.

This villa is recommended when you want a relaxed vacation in the middle off beach life and also restaurants and bars near buy.

Great place and location. Going back again.

  • 5 of 5

Great rental and great location. Kostas is very friendly and helpful. The maisonnette is beautiful and the apartment very nice and spacious. Next to beach and all amenities. Couple of points to improve on are air conditioning would be needed in hotter weather in the apartments(the maisonnette already has air con). Both could benefit from a safe being fitted, although the maisonnette has lockable draws. Both would be better if shower heads were attached to walls with curtains. These things did not spoil my stay but would make my stay better next time. Kostas is very hospitable and is looking into addressing these .things in time. I hope to go back next year. Thankyou Kostas

Well presented with plenty of room for relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Had a great 7 days here with our marvelous host Kostas looking after all our needs.

The property is perfectly positioned to enjoy all the facilities of Agios Gordios being less that a minutes walk from the beach and village, yet it feels very secluded when relaxing in the lovely surroundings of the villa.

Would highly recommend and happily visit again

Owner's Response: Richard, it was a pleasure having you, Di and your friends couple stay at the maisonette villa and so glad to hear that you enjoyed its retreat feel, but also the proximity to the beach and village. We enjoyed your party's spirit and good humour; I hope to see you again in Agios Gordis in Corfu and in your part of the woods in Egham too! Best wishes Kostas K

Ottima location, a due passi dalla spiaggia e da buoni ristoranti

  • 5 of 5

Location splendida: villa Corfiota é molto spaziosa, confortevole e ben tenuta, inserita in un bel giardino e con un bellissimo portico per mangiare all'aperto. Ci sono condizionatori nelle stanze da letto e lavatrice in comune ad altri appartamenti. Si trova a 2 passi dalla spiaggia cui si accede attraverso strada sterrata (20 m) e piazzale dell'antistante ristorante Poseidon sulla spiaggia (con ombrelloni e lettini a servizio dei clienti), ottimo per uno spuntino a pranzo ma anche cena a base di carne o pesce (tramonti stupendi sulla terrazza a bordo spiaggia). Spiaggia prevalentemente di sabbia con qualche ciottolo in alcune zone., acqua pulita. L'auto si può parcheggiare nel piazzale (usufruendo saltuariamente del trstorante).

L'ambiente è famigliare ed il proprietario Kostas estremamente disponibile (anche per consigli su ristoranti, zone interessanti dell'isola, spiagge da vedere,...) e cordiale. La posizione del paese Agios Gordios strategica per visitare tutta l'isola: ci sono zone con mare ancora migliore (vedi Palaiocastrizsa), ma più affollate e scomode (più decentrate) e comunque comodamente raggiungibili in 30 min d'auto. Il paese è piccolo ma offre qualche negozietto per souvenir, supermarket e buoni ristoranti.

Scelta ottima per famiglie.

Tornerei volentieri a Villa Corfiota.

1. A beach walk north (400 m) will lead you to a quiet (almost private) beach called Black Stones (Mavres Plakes) known for its rock formations. A 15 drive to Achilleion, the former palace - museum of queen Elizabeth of Austria (Sissy) and King of Germany Helmut Keiser, which is a tribute to Achilles, is a worth while visit.

2. Local bars-lounges recommened: Two comfortable garden lounge bars w a great selection of cocktails, both on the high street, is Madison Gardens (more upscale) and Lemonia (younger crowd). For an all day experience by the beach and cocktails at sunset time, try Sabbia, Ark and Alo Bar.

3. Drive (five mins) or walk-hike (2.5 khms) to the traditonal and picturesque villages of Sinarades (it has a pop culture museum), Garounas and Pentatis offering superb views from hill tops on to the sea; the later (Pentatis) is part of the 'Corfu Trail', the picturesque route of the Corfu trail which covers approximately 200 klms of the island
