Truly beautiful villa with fantastic pool in a peaceful location.

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful week at Villa Callisto. The villa is simply stunning, the views are beautiful and it’s very peaceful. There was plenty of space for our family of four and our children aged 3 and 5 loved the pool. The villa had everything we needed and the pool towels and welcome pack were a great touch.

The villa is remote so you definitely need a car, there is a supermarket a few mins drive at the bottom of the hill that had everything we needed and we spent most of our time at the beach at Glyfada (less than 15 mins drive) which was perfect for children and enjoyed eating out in Pelekas (again a short drive).

Would highly reccomend this villa, we loved it and can’t wait to come back.

Well-equipped villa with glorious views

  • 5 of 5

Driving instructions from the airport could be clearer as the site is not easy to find. One landmark we missed was 'Mini market' because the sign over the store simply said 'Market'. Approximate distances would have been helpful. Once we reached the villa all was forgiven as it is beautifully situated with lovely views! The accommodation is hard to fault and the pool sparkled in the sunlight. Everything was spotlessly clean and very homely. Perhaps a few more glass tumblers and cooking pans are needed but otherwise the kitchen facilities were fine. All in all a most enjoyable stay helped by a week of glorious sunshine!

Absolutely beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely beautiful villa with stunning views. Directions to villa were perfect and a great welcome pack on arrival (much needed when arriving with toddlers after midnight!) car required which gives you perfect opportunity to explore the island. Highly recommend staying at villa Callisto if you are after a quiet and beautiful getaway :-)

Thanks from the Sweeney's!

Corfu, I will return

  • 5 of 5

First visit to the wonderful island of Corfu and it won't be our last. Arrived at the villa and found it to be just as described. It was a pleasure to stay in such a beautiful villa with the most fantastic views. We felt very much at home with every need considered and catered for. I would highly recommend this villa for a perfect stay and would love to return.

A beautiful villa to stay in. Clean and a lot of comfort inside and outside.

The swimming pool is for me the best. Well maintained by the pool cleaner. Compliments!

With open windows the wind blows fresh air in the living room. Airco is not needed.

Airco would be nice for the second bedroom. At night it is quite hot. Only the master bedroom has airco.

I can recommend this villa.
