|Minimum Stay||4 - 7 nights|
Set within a luminous garden with plenty of olive and Cypress trees is this Mediterranean-styled villa, Villa Mayroula.
Even though located in a peaceful area, not overlooked at all, it is only a few minutes away from all the amenities and beaches of the North East Coast.
The villa accommodates up to 6 guests, spread over two levels. Shaded verandas and relaxation areas embrace the property offering lovely Corfiot views.
The large swimming pool with a paddling pool, surrounded with olive trees is a perfect place to enjoy the laid-back Mediterranean lifestyle. An ideal place for relaxing holidays.
Breath-taking, private and very relaxing!
Villa Mayroula is absolutely gorgeous! It is exactly as portrayed in the pictures!
The swimming pool is crystal clear. We were a bit concerned whether the water would be clean knowing that different families rent the villa all summer long, but Corfu Property provides great maintenance. In the evening there will be a few leaves in the water (and perhaps some unfortunate bees) but by the morning the swimming pool would be perfectly clean!
The villa was fully equipped with everything needed for a vacation home - from the utensils and baby high chair to dish soap and mosquito repellents. It has also comfortable indoor and outdoor furniture that helps create different spaces for people to hang out and enjoy the pleasant setting.
The villa is secluded at the end of the road, provides privacy and yet feels very safe. The first time we went up the road we were slightly intimidated by its steepness but we quickly got accustomed to it. Later on we realized that most Corfu roads are narrow and steep so that the road to the villa was more of a norm rather than an exception.
Furthermore, we were very impressed with the service we received from Corfu Property and Ingrid in particular. She was very helpful in addressing our questions prior to arriving at the villa and during our stay. She even brought a welcome basket with some fruits, cheese, bread, wine and coffee - so that we can have comfortable first evening at the villa. We really appreciated that as we had traveled for over 20 hours from Canada and we were exhausted.
We had a truly inspiring and relaxing vacation at the villa and we wholeheartedly recommend the place. We hope Corfu Property keeps up the great work that they are doing as we certainly look forward to coming back!
This villa is even more fabulous than the pictures. We drove up the steep hill, to be welcomed by Ingrid. She had provided a welcome basket to get us started, which we really appreciated - as the kids were already in the pool!
The house is so much bigger than the photos show. The villa has large gates, plus an electric gate at the end of the road - you feel safe and secure. There is everything you can imagine here, there is a washing machine, a dishwasher, a fridge/freezer. There is airconditioning in every room, plus shutters, and bug screens - the house was so lovely.
The pool was massive - much bigger than the pools we normally get with a private villa - and it was all for us! We spent much of our time here in the pool and garden, it was so private and quiet.
We drove into Ipsos a couple of times - they have a lovely Chinese restaurant. There is a fabulous bakery at the Dassia end of the road. It is a short car ride to Corfu town, which is a lovely place.
I would come back to Corfu - but only if we could come back to Villa Mayroula!
An absolutely wonderful (and large) property, finished to a great standard (only built a few years ago). Very peaceful location, wonderful views, particularly from the upstairs balcony. The pool was lovely and warm and the kids loved spending time in it (including the slide and rocker). Air conditioning in all of the bedrooms and the lounge, a number of places to sit outside and relax on the terrace, wifi, barbecue with charcoal, a welcome hamper full of essentials plus fridge complete with milk, water, bread, cheese etc... Pool attendant came during the week, as did cleaners twice during our stay (everything cleaned, fresh towels etc..). It's all these little differences that really make a holiday. When you work hard you want all these things taken care of and it absolutely was here. To top it all Ingrid (the estate agent) was excellent - great communication, did everything she said she would, a real pleasure to deal with. 1 wedding at this property last year, 2 this year - says it all really. Would thoroughly recommend this place. We also travelled around the island and not only is this property well situated near to the beach at Ipsos, but if we had had the choice of anywhere in Corfu this is the part of the island that we'd have stayed in. A great week!
PS. We visited some great restaurants whilst we were here - Alvi in Corfu town, Dionysos in Barbati, Chill & Grill in Kassiopi and Akron in Paleokastritsa.
The directions were precise, but a satnav is recommended for the last mile.
We arrived in the dark at Saturday and enjoyed a very warm welcome. Everything was exactly as described and pictured. Things, which were not mentioned, exceeded our expectations. For instance, it is located at the top of a hill with superior Tuscany-style view. Nobody is around you, except for the neighbour villa, which is usually not occupied. And even if it were, nobody will be able to watch you at the pool. Exclusiveness pure.
Cleaning service comes 3 times per week and pool and gardening services 2 times per week. If it is too much for your privacy, you can certainly make an arrangement.
The chlorine free pool was in excellent condition. The tap water was fresh and tasty. No need to drink stale water from plastic bottles. Unlimited hot water supply is available. Every room has its own shower, one even a bath tube. All rooms are equiped with air condition and fly screen. Couch, seats, beds, furniture, kitchen,.. everything was fine. Nothing was worn or required a repair.
Hotbird SAT and a selection of DVDs, some with English language or subtitles, are available. High-speed WLAN and 2m LAN cable are available to stream videos from the Inet to your tablet.
The only thing we've missed to make it perfect, were 2 bicycles at the villa. A car is highly recommended, but a downhill footwalk to Dassia is manageable. Stop at the Art Coffee, where you enjoy a recommendable (non-alcoholic) cocktail. A 100m from there you'll find a nice bakery with pastry at the main road of Dassia.
On your first arrival you are advised to take the road along the sea through Dassia, which gives you a good overview. However, if you want to go quickly to Corfu town or Palaiokastritsa, then take the main road through the mountains. A 100m down this main road on the way to Corfu town you'll find a shop on the left with organic food of much higher quality than you'll get in super markets.
Corfu Property immediately cared about the broken DSL line, making high pressure at the telco. Excellent! Before we arrived, they refilled the oil tank and fixed some cosmetic repair.
All-in-all it is a highly recommendable location, if you want privacy or to relax. It requires only 5 to 10 minutes extra drive compared to other villas which are located closer to the sea.
It was the best we've come across during the past 20 years. We'd like to give a surplus star and a big THANK YOU!
