Overview

About the property

Double Sea View Studios for Adults only*

Do you feel that you need a holiday after your holiday?

Not all of us can sleep anywhere. Unfamiliar beds and pillows don't help. The Coco Mat mattresses, mattress toppers and pillows will help to resolve this in no time. Fine, soft bed linen and fluffy white towels by Guy Laroche add a little more luxury to your stay. Slate grey Guy Laroche pool towels are supplied.

The studios have been decorated in a palette of muted colours that will not impact on your relaxation. All the furniture has been designed and custom made to enhance the available space. The bathrooms are compact. They have marble sinks, Italian tiles, high quality fittings and dual function showers. The studios are located over the ground, first and second floors of the property.

Around the pool custom made wooden cabanas, furnished with white mattresses and oversize pillows offer privacy for relaxing. Single and double sun beds, perfect for sun worshippers, are arranged on the decking and can face the pool, the sea or follow the sun.

The 'Serene' Pool Bar is the perfect place for a healthy breakfast smoothie, a light snack for lunch or a dish of indulgent ice cream. Later, it is the best place to start your evening with a pre dinner drink or that final cocktail before bed.

To stretch and heal your body Yoga sessions can be booked and take place on the decking facing the sea. To rejuvenate and relax your body, a massage, reflexology or a facial can be arranged with our wellness therapist.

Located just outside the village of Messonghi, on the road to Boukari, the Ionian Eye Design Studios, have a reputation for offering stylish accommodation and excellent service.

All double rooms have stunning views of the Ionian Sea and the Greek mainland, and as an adults only property* your stay will be peaceful throughout the day and night.

The Ionian Eye is the perfect distance from Messonghi, far enough away from the busy-ness of a small village but close enough that an easy walk to the beach, restaurants, bakery and supermarkets is a pleasure.

*Adults only we do not accept children under 10 years of age

About NEXT Holidays

Leigh, your Guest Services Manager, chose an entirely different career on leaving college. She came to Corfu in 1994 and began her second career working with visitors to the island. This has been as diverse as cleaning charter yachts to managing a small hotel in the Caribbean.

Knowing that our guests choose us from the biggest holiday brochure available, she will go the extra mile to ensure that your holiday exceeds your expectations.

Why NEXT Holidays chose Mesoggi

* Our philosophy is one of wellness, relaxation and rejuvenation, therefore we do not accept children under 10 years of age.

The Ionian Eye design studios has a perfect location - just outside Messonghi village, above the road to Boukari, surrounded by olive and citrus groves, with uninterrupted views of the sea.

The fully renovated interiors, designed by Robert Rys, incorporate innovative, organic and sustainably sourced products. Comfort and relaxation have been considered from design concept to completion. Quality fittings are complimented by chic furnishings commissioned especially for Ionian Eye.

The studios have been thoughtfully designed so that the sleeping and living areas of the double and triple studios are well defined. The two room family studios have a comfortable sofa bed in the living area and plenty of storage space for bed linen and clothes. The bedroom is furnished with a double bed, built in storage, flat screen TV and a concealed laptop safe.

The kitchenettes, although compact, contain a refrigerator, ceramic hob, microwave, toaster, kettle, cutlery, china and glassware, cooking pans and utensils. All the brands chosen are trusted for their reliability and quality. There are also Satellite TV channels, hairdryer and mosquito nets on windows and doors.

All accommodation has a furnished balcony and air conditioning. Most of the studios have a sea view. Wi-fi is complementary and parking is available on site.

What makes this apartment unique

An extensive range of therapies that include sports and Swedish massage, reflexology, reviving beauty treatments and yoga sessions, that will be tailored to your fitness level, can be arranged.

A car is not necessary as the property is located 500m from Messonghi, a small village where the Romans took their holidays in ancient times. The sea is clean and the water shallow with no strong currents. Messonghi has several good restaurants and beachside tavernas, a couple of bars, a bakery, supermarkets and an ATM.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This was my fifth time at Ionian Eye studios and as usual it did not disappoint.

The staff are wonderful: Maid service is excellent; Leigh the Guest Services Manager is very friendly and happy to answer any questions with her considerable knowledge of the island and Costas the owner is such a lovely gentleman - always greeting you with a friendly hug and a big genuine smile.

I stayed in a 2 roomed apartment with a big balcony and sea view. One room had a comfortable bed settee, a large flat screen TV and a very modern kitchen area where light meals could easily be prepared and a bathroom with toilet, sink and shower.

The bedroom had an en-suite bathroom, a large mirror and dressing area, large flat screen TV, plenty drawers/cupboard space/clothes hangers and a massive bed which was so comfortable I considered an extra half hour each morning!!

The rooms are surrounded by stunning sea views and lush foliage which is well maintained.

The pool area is beautiful and modern, with a brand new bar area, new decking, very comfortable and modern sun loungers (both with and without shade) and a breath-taking view of the Ionian Sea.

The studios themselves are exactly as in the numerous photos so you won’t get any nasty surprises!

There is also free WiFi, a safe and air conditioning and a safe.

The studios are situated in a peaceful area 5 minutes stroll from the village where there are 2 supermarkets, lots of taverns, coffee shops and the main beach.

Thank you Costas and Leigh for everything.

I would not hesitate to highly recommend this little piece of heaven to anyone...

Great pool

  • 5 of 5

This is a nice spot on the east coast of the island. Our room was newly remodeled with an expansive veranda and cacti in front of it. One crosses the small road to go to the beach. It is wlking distance to many good restaurants.

An oasis of peace in beautiful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

Amazing views of the coastline coupled with the best pool area I have experienced in a long time made this stay one of my all time favourites.

Justine ,who managed the Pool Bar area ,was brilliant and made you feel so welcome and is a fountain of local knowledge as was Leigh , my initial contact, who organised our airport transfers without any fuss,gave us excellent restaurant recommendations and came in to her own when I needed a Doctor at very short notice.

The pool area is stunning and makes you feel like you are at a Private Beach club . Cocktails are excellent and a food menu was in the process of been finalised during our stay and went "Live" a day before we left.

It's only a 5 minute walk to Restaurants,bars,and a couple of supermarkets and we found everyone so friendly and helpful.

Our room was small but this is the norm in Greece and wasn't a problem as the design was very clever(you will spend such a small amount amount of time in the room as your surroundings are so beautiful ).

Great place to relax and unwind in classy and beautiful surroundings.We will definitely return in the future.

  • 5 of 5

Staff really friendly that go the extra mile.

A perfect location on a beautiful island. Ionian Eye is the place to stay with good places to eat & drink within minutes walk. Studios are small but yet offer everything you need. Ground floor sea view is a must. Pool area is lovely with double day beds and gazebos plus an amazing view of the ocean. 10/10 highly recommend.

Messonghi
Car: not necessary

The centre of Messonghi village is a short ten minute walk from the property and is considered to be one of the most friendly and charming resorts on Corfu. It is surrounded by mountains and is separated from Moraitika by the Messonghi River. It is not a coincidence that this resort pioneered tourism in Greece. Archaeological findings of early settlements dated 50,000 B.C. have been excavated here, making the area interesting also from another point of view.

The well organized beach has some excellent tavernas serving fresh local fish and seafood. There are supermarkets for basic requirements and a bakery. Restaurants are found all around the village serving excellent traditional Greek and Corfiot dishes. There are a couple of bars with a chilled ambience.

The Messonghi River, (a 15 minute walk), divides the resorts and is the base for the daily boat tours to the Mainland and the Sea Caves. These tours can be booked from the on site office, along with speed boat rental and cruises to Paxos and Anti Paxos.

There are plenty of activities on offer that will appeal to many guests, from the extreme sports of kite surfing and fast, downhill mountain biking to hiking and organic cookery classes or massage and pampering treatments.

The Ionian Eye is an excellent base for exploring the island, especially the not so well known villages and resorts in the South. The bigger village of Moraitika is 1,5 km from the property where you can find a larger selection of supermarkets, boutiques, souvenir shops, restaurants, and bars. The village of Chlomos, famous for its amazing views can be reached by foot. It is a 3km up hill walk, but worth the effort! Corfu Town is a 45 minute bus ride from Messonghi Village. The public bus service is cheap and frequent. Benitses, on the road to Corfu Town, is an busy holiday resort with a small marina, an interesting Old Village where ruins of a Roman Bath House can be found. If you want to go further afield, vehicle rental is easy and relatively cheap and can be pre booked prior to your arrival or through our onsite office.

The property is approximately half an hour by taxi, depending on the traffic, from the airport.
