A 2 week stay in Corfu paradise June/July 2019
Since the moment we booked this stay my and wife and I were excited, having never stayed in Corfu before. I can only say that are dreams were more than realized and a lot of this was down to the property owner Sara. Sarah's hospitality and knowledge knows no bounds from suggestions and ideas of the island to looking after my wife and I in the villa. All was first class & it has been a great pleasure to meet Sarah & I cannot recommend Gidalia and Sarah highly enough. Minimum 10 stars out of the 5 stars available !!
Sarah gave us a run down of the local area and suggestions in line with our plans and also included a short tour of Gouvia which was greatly appreciated. Again many Thanks to Sarah for this. The villa itself is excellent, very stylish and a cool retreat away from the soaring temperatures in the day should you need it, however the outside area to put it simply is amazing. The pool, outside lounge, bbq & kitchen area are all fantastically laid out with the trees and flowers making the whole thing picture perfect. We spent lots of time around the pool and had many a debate on if to leave the pool area to go "touristing" or simply just stay in this little piece of isolated paradise. The isolation is just that you are 20 minutes walk away from the centre of Gouvia which was ideal for us. We did escape the pool on occasions and I am glad we did - Corfu is a beautiful island with great people, places to visit and also the cuisine is excellent. I am hopeful of a return to Corfu but I think I will only stay in one place Gidalia. Many Thanks to Sara for your help & wonderful place.Diane and I hope to return soon, its been a great pleasure to meet you and all the best for the future. We may have stopped "Durrelling" but we still love this place.
Relaxing break in a beautiful location
We really enjoyed staying in a Greek home. The apartment is spacious and very well equipped. The pool area is excellent, and the location of the property is ideal for peace and quiet, yet within walking distance of Gouvia, and the local bus service. Sarah was very welcoming and informative, and our stay more than lived up to the high expectations we had having read the previous reviews
We had a really lovely week at Sarah's home set in a quiet neighbourhood a few kilometers away from the east coast nr Gouvia.
The location is excellent for airport access, Corfu Town, supermarkets and v well placed for visiting all areas of the island!
The apartment is very spacious, comfortable and extremely well equipped. It is on the ground floor of Sarah's large villa but completely private with separate access. The jewel in the crown has to be the fabulous swimming pool and amazing entertainment /bbq area with tables, chairs and loungers... Ideal for relaxing by the pool and al fresco dining!
Sarah is super helpful and friendly... She gave us advice on excursions and restaurants.
We would highly recommend staying at Gidalia Apartment and hope to visit again soon!!

1 week in June at Gilfada
My wife and two children stayed at ‘Gilfada’ for a week and I can thoroughly recommend it as a brilliant base for exploring Corfu. The apartment is beautifully furnished inside and comes with everything you need - lots of kitchen utensils (including plastic ware for the poolside), fresh towels, aircon, extra fans, tv, books and games and lots of leaflets for various tourist spots around the island. Best of all is the pool and bbq area which you have completely to yourself - it’s a really lovely spot, surrounded by flowers and plants and we couldn’t keep the kids (11 and 5) out of the superb pool - they loved it.
Finally, a huge thank you to Sarah for being such a brilliant host. Even before we arrived she was really thoughtful, checking what time we were arriving, suggesting a great car hire company and giving us directions to her place. She was also there to greet us when we arrived even though it was after 10pm and had thoughtfully left a couple of pizzas, bread, milk and wine in the fridge for us. She also dropped by the next morning to give us the ‘tour’ and suggested loads of great places to go to, including local restaurants and bakeries. All in all, a fabulous place to stay in beautiful Corfu.
A 5 star apartment with a 5 star hostess.
The photos don’t do this apartment justice as it is simply beautiful: it is spacious and tastefully decorated; it has plentiful kitchen gadgets (more than we have at home!) with numerous cooking utensils/crockery and the beds are really comfy. The outside area is fabulous as the pool is large and has the most amazing outdoor sitting area with BBQ.
Sarah is not only a lovely person but also a fantastic hostess who takes time to recommend excellent places to visit. The apartment is ideally situated to explore the island - car hire is essential. I used Sarah’s car hire recommendation which was much cheaper than the rentals that I had found online. We usually rent a private villa with pool and this apartment offers similar privacy yet is better value for your money. Without doubt, I would return to this apartment should I visit Corfu again.
Perfect Apartment - can't wait to go back!
My husband and I spent nine fabulous days here at the start of September 2017. The apartment is lovely - tastefully decorated, with everything you could possibly need. The bedroom has a very comfy large double bed, with lots of wardrobe space and good aircon. The kitchen is fully equipped, with plentiful crockery, pots, pans, and even a cool bag and freezer blocks for picnics on the beach. Everything works and has been looked after. It really is a home away from home!
And then there is the outdoor area! Wow! The pool is just lovely! It was cleaned several times while we were there. There was a selection of sunbeds around the pool, as well as an impressive BBQ, outdoor kitchen, dining area and outdoor living room. Again, all very well kept and really nicely decorated! We lived out here for most of the week, and had it all to ourselves. It felt very private.
The location is great too - we walked into Gouvia for an evening meal on several nights - it only takes about 20 minutes. But the apartment is far enough out to be lovely and quiet. Gouvia is well located for exploring the north or south of the island - nowhere is more than an hours drive away.
And finally, the host Sarah is extremely helpful. She helped us to arrange car hire, book a fantastic boat trip to Paxos on small yacht, and recommended numerous meals out in fantastic Tavernas around corfu. All of her recommendations turned out to be very enjoyable experiences and really made the holiday. Thank you Sarah!
