We stayed in Villa Koumaria for 11 days with our 2 sons. Steve the villa owner very responsive to any enquiries and kindly organised some supplies for our late arrival . The villa is beautifully presented and very well equipped with everything you would need for your stay. Even a walk in wardrobe in main bedroom! Wi-Fi was excellent. Pool fantastic and in secluded location , no neighbours! The location was perfect for us. 20 mins to beautiful Corfu town. 10mins to Kommeno bay where we hire boats to explore right to Corfu town and Agni Bay and waterski with 35 Boats owned by Spyros and his lovley wife. Also 10 mins from our favourite beach at Barbati and another Spyros great boat hire too from here! Finally 20 mins away from possibly the best food in Corfu in Spartillas, Agnadio a family run taverna with amazing views and the most delicious food, made with their own produce . As others have pointed out the last part of road to villa is a track , we found it ok once we had worked out areas to avoid where our hired fiat tippo could ground out! It is a public road apparently but don't think it would be too much trouble to maybe level out these parts and fill with some road chippings maybe, although saying this it would not put us off returning to Villa.
A beautiful villa - well equpped and in a peaceful location
We had a fabulous time in Villa Koumaria. Steve, the owner has thought of everything and the Villa is extremely well-equipped and the photos really don’t do it justice. There was plenty of space for all of us (2 families with three teenagers) and it was wonderful to have choice of indoor and outdoor spaces to eat (although wasps were a bit of a problem at times). The pool was great, the air conditioning was fantastic and easy to control and Wi-fi was excellent. Steve provided very clear instructions for absolutely everything and was very prompt to answer any queries during our stay. He also gave extremely clear instructions for the drive from the airport which we followed without a problem at midnight. We hired two smallish cars which coped with the bumpy 400m track leading to the Villa - you just need to drive VERY slowly over each bump. It is a small price to pay for the peaceful location with incredible views.
The local little supermarket in Kato Korakiana provides excellent bread and basic essentials and larger supermarkets are easy to get to.
We loved exploring the beaches around the coast and can heartily recommend hiring a boat (we used Spiros Boats on Barbati beach) and pottering around the coast to find quiet beaches. Nikolas Taverna in Agni is an excellent lunch stop (booking is a good idea). We also hired a boat from Paleokastritsa and visited Paradise beach which has unbelievably clear waters and the area is great for snorkelling.
All in all, it was a fantastic place to stay with great attention to detail, from the basic provisions we’d requested waiting for us to twice weekly visits from Denise the housekeeper and the pool maintenance man. A perfect holiday location - thank you!
We had a fantastic holiday in Corfu and the villa exceeded our expectations. It is beautiful, quiet and well equipped. The access to the villa is dirt road for the final half kilometer or so and another reviewer expressed concerns with the road. We had no trouble, you just need to drive slowly along this stretch. We rented a Hyundi trajet which did not have extra ground clearance and experienced no problems.The directions to the villa were clear and exact and we had no problem finding it at midnight...although that last half kilometer did seem long in the dark!
There were 7 of us on holiday including four 19- 21 year olds. The Island is small so it was easy for them to sample the nightlife/clubs and get a taxi back to the villa ( torch needed as the taxi dropped them at the dirt road) while the rest of us sipped wine on the balcony/terrace while admiring the beautiful views and watching the sun set.
We sampled some of the recommended restaurants and loved The Sixty Needles. Great food and friendly staff. We also loved the Select restaurant also in Kato Korakiana. The owner/waiters eccentricity only added to our enjoyment. Best food we had in Corfu.Both of these restaurants are walking distance from the villa, takes about 40 minutes and meant we could have a couple of drinks. Torch required for walking back in the dark.Tried to go to Vinieri Bistro on our last night (rated highly on trip adviser) but it was full so booking is recommended.
Lots to do and see during the daytime if you want to leave the villa. We loved Agios Georgios beach. We spent a few mornings in Corfu town. Amazingly ornate churches, interesting old fortress and some lovely shops as well as the usual tat in a tourist area. We wanted to go to the archaeological museum but has been closed for the past year for renovations!! The pace is slow in Corfu. We loved the banknote museum, we were the only people in it at the time. Informative guide. Take a boat trip. Really fun, good value and yummy food provided. We took ours from Dassia beach with a company called Asteras. When you are tired of the heat and lying around Aqualand is the place to be! Only 25 euro a head and something for all ages.
We would recommend a good map, some we had literally cut corners! we found a good one in Dassia.
We had a great holiday and loved the villa, Corfu and the friendly Greek people.
Fijne rustige plek met fantastisch uitzicht richting Corfu stad, laatste stuk weg er naar toe was onverhard en slecht.
Neat and tidy villa to spend great holidays
We had a great time at Villa Koumaria. Everything was even better than expected. The communication with the owner worked well and was very fast. Thank you for an unforgettable holiday. We world be happy to stay here again.
Beautiful, well equipped villa with the most amazing view
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely villa. It has eveything you need and on arrival there was a little package of things such as milk, bread, wine....thank you for that. The pool is great and was very clean. Every morning to look out from the balcony on to the fantastic view towards Corfu Town and the trees and hills was wonderful. It is very secluded and away from it all which we like - we really only had the company of cicadas, friendly crickets, butterflies, birds, and a couple of lizards apart from the one day that we saw the pool cleaner and Denise who cleaned the villa and brought fresh towels half way through our stay which was nice. We would suggest a fairly high clearance car for the track. All in all a great holiday in a super location, thank you.
