We fell in love with the peaceful surroundings and the tremendous view

What makes this villa unique

quiet, beautiful, not far from the beach and tavernas by car.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Cath Staincliffe review:

This is a delightful villa, well-furnished, tastefully decorated with superb facilities, lovely patios with shrubs and trees all in a peaceful location. The views are stupendous and well worth the long (sometimes hair-raising) climb up from the coast road. The air-con was good and not too noisy. The pool is small - fine for a cooling dip but dont expect to do any lengths - the seas better for a lovely swim.

Very nice villa with excellent views in Nisaki

  • 5 of 5

We booked the villa two days before arrival and worked all details out with the owner. The villa was very nice and all clean. The villa is located some way up the hill side, so a car is a must. It is a very quiet and private. We were 100% happy about our stay.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Great location with beautiful views of the sea in one of the nicest areas of the island. The villas have a nice swimming pool, plenty of space and all you need for a very nice holiday. As mentioned in the description, a car is definitely required. The owner is very responsive and helpful, everything was arranged very easily. In summary, we were very satisfied!

Kalypso Villas

  • 5 of 5

We stayed as a family of 6 adults to celebrate my retirement. We were looking for somewhere which would meet the needs of mid twenties to 50 somethings. Everyone in the party thoroughly enjoyed the stay - there was plenty of space to be together or to be separate. All said they would like to come again.

We mostly ate outdoors and there was a good bbq. The views were absolutely fantastic and changing weather paterns, shipping etc gave plenty to look at - binnoculars essential!

The pool was small but good to cool off in and there was a nice shady area as well as space to sun bathe.

The road up to the villa was unnerving at first as it is very steep, winding and narrow - you do need to take care. If possible don't arrive for the 1st time in the dark if you are driving. Younger members of the party quickly identified a pedestrian short cut down to the local beach and reckoned it took about 30 mins to walk back up.

We found the villa very clean and comfortable. We ate at a variety of taverners and didn't have a bad meal. We found 'Vitamins' on the main road very good and impressively friendly. They even gave some of our group a free lift back up to the villa one evening when the car was needed elsewhere.

Villas Kalypso and Olive Press, Corfu

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week and would thoroughly recommend it to friends and family. Both villas were very well equipped, cool, clean and spacious. Outside areas were well looked after and the views stunning. The pool, although not big, was lovely. Some visiting neighbours' cats were a welcome addition for animal lovers. The only downside is the steep, bendy and narrow road up to the villas - a hire car is essential. I found it a bit daunting at first but feel proud of the improvement in my driving skills! The other driver loved the excitement of the hairpin bends and meeting cars coming the other way.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your positive comments we are so pleased that you had a good holiday and enjoyed staying at that the Villas Kalypso. We work very hard to make sure that all our visitors are able to relax and enjoy themselves and it is satisfying to know when we have achieved this. The road up to the Villas can be a trial for some, others love it, but it is well worth it when you see the views from the terrace. Peta and Keith Donaghy

Heaven in Corfu

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay. The villas inside are well designed, clean and very comfortable, exceptionally well equipped-very new. They are a very contemporary mix of traditional Corfoit buildings with modern interiors. The Olive Press, has two lovely modern bathrooms, one with a gorgeous spa bath. The location is in the up-market and prettiest area of Corfu.

The views are really spectacular and we felt it was very good value for the high standards achieved. It is at the top of a hill, but you won’t be disappointed.

There are lots of paved areas in shade and sun where you can relax, eat, drink and take in the views. Two weeks passed by all too quickly.

A cut above the rest

  • 5 of 5

I was nervous about renting this villa because it's at the top of a long,steep hill and not on the beach. It sure was a great decision and I highly recommend it! With stunning views and a very comfortable layout, Villa Kalypso is better than a lot of the other places we saw during our stay. The property is VERY clean and new. We were 2 families (7 people) traveling together. The pool's perfect for a morning and afternoon dip. Our kids loved it and we had group dinners right next to the pool or up on the terrace with views (and a grill!). Kitchens are fully equipped and the air conditioners all worked really well. We were very well taken care of by both a cleaning lady and pool guy. One problem with our dishwasher was fixed within hours. Because of the location, it worked best for us to leave in the morning on day trips by car and come back when we were finished. Trips to the North, West and East coasts are all convenient from this location by car. Our favorite trip was to Sidari to visit and swim among the rock formations in the north.The drive up the hill makes it a bit inconvenient if you need to go back and forth to your place throughout the day, but it's such a gorgeous place to come home to, you might not even want to leave! Added bonus: the Greek neighbors across the street were friendly, too. We loved it.

Apolosies is on the hillside above Nissaki on the north east coast and within just a few miles are the lovely beaches of Nissaki, Agni ,Kaloura and Kalami and further to the north, Kassiopi.

There are supermarkets in Nissaki and the beach there has many very good tavernas right on the waters edge.

Nissaki has water sports and a diving centre and you can hire a boat for trips along the bay. Barbati is just a few miles to the south and Ipsos is only a few more miles where you can find a more lively night life.

Kassiopi to the North has a lovely harbour surrounded by tavernas and there is also a range of shops.

Mount Pantokrator is the highest on Corfu and creates a backdrop to the villa you can drive to the top to see the views and the monestry.
