About the property

Large three bedroom villa suitable for 4-6 or 6-8 guests

Lazy Acre is a beautiful private villa set in an acre-wide olive grove on the edge of Agios Ioannis, it was our family home until we returned back to the UK 9 years ago.

The villa is surrounded by flowers and fruit trees, it's very private and isn't overlooked at all. The whole point of staying in a place like Lazy Acre is that you shouldn't feel compelled to do anything at all but if you do fancy a change of scenery the villa's central location makes it easy to get out and about to explore the stunning coastline and the pretty villages where life doesn't appear to change.

Kids will love the pool and the nearby water park ''Aqualand'' that's just minutes away by car. Teenagers will probably appreciate the lively atmosphere in Gouvia less than 5 kms away. The nearest place to eat is Taverna Paradiso just a few minutes on foot, we love it here the food is mainly grilled meats fresh salads and various dips but they also do a number of pasta dishes.

Lazy Acre is spacious, homely and well laid out over 2 floors. You enter the villa into the large open plan kitchen/diner. The kitchen is well equipped and although barely needed there is a fire place for the cooler evenings in low season. Also on this level are 2 of the 3 bedrooms 1 with 2 single beds and the other with a king size bed, both with balconies and a shared bathroom. From the open plan kitchen/diner there is a lovely pool-facing balcony which is perfect for relaxing any time day or evening, when we holiday at the villa we love to sit and have drinks here especially early evening. The spiral staircase leads up to the top floor, here is a spacious living room with ample seating and a large sofa bed suitable for two adults, UK TV is also available. There is a separate bedroom on this floor with a double bed and ensuite shower and toilet.

Cots and a high chair available.

Depending on what time you arrive you may be welcomed by the lovely Aresti - her and her husband Alkis maintain the villa, the gardens and the pool area. They live in a completely self contained apartment beneath the villa. Their presence is discrete however should you need any help with anything or any suggestions of places and things to do Aresti speaks English and will be happy to help, but is never intrusive.

Getting to the villa - Car hire is strongly recommended.

The airport is only 20 minutes south of the property, which means that you will arrive at the Villa quickly, unstressed and very probably without requiring the assistance of a map (we do send driving instructions nearer the time). Anyone wishing to enjoy the bars and clubs of Gouvia can safely get back to the villa by taxi in under 10 minutes.In the villa there is an information book about all the nearest beaches and local amenities.

There is a generous and varied selection of restaurants in the area to suit every occasion. No need either to leave your golf clubs at home as the Golf Course is also 10 minutes away and especially delightful out of high season.

The nearest village is Agios Ioannis. Here you will find a charming square with an outdoor taverna and is a popular place, frequented by locals and "in the know visitors". Even Corfu Town is only a 15 - 20 minute drive away. * Car hire is highly recommended in order to get the most out of your holiday. If you wish, we can gladly help you with these arrangements.

About Julie Baboolal Davies

Corfu was our home for many years and is still one of our favourite places to spend our holidays. We have 3 boys - Alex, Oscar and Freddie a Vizsla called Sansa (We are big GOT fans) and a cat called Tasso!

We encourage anyone that is considering staying at the villa to feel free to ask as many questions with no obligation to book.

Our aim is to help you get the most out of your holiday.

Why Julie Baboolal Davies chose Corfu

Lazy Acre is quiet and peaceful, we fell in love with the villa the second we drove through the gates. We loved the space inside and out, every window has a lovely view of trees and the surrounding area.

What makes this villa unique

Gated property, private and not over looked.

Simply gorgeous

  • 5 of 5

Myself and seven friends stayed here for a week all between ages of 21-23. The contact we received before our holiday with Julie was amazing, replies within the hour telling us recommendations and helping us sort out transfers and transport throughout the week. We didn’t have a car throughout our stay but it may be useful for a young family If you are planning lots of trips. The housekeeper was absolutely amazing and answered any questions we had but wasn’t in the way and we only saw her at the beginning of our stay. We couldn’t quite believe how big the swimming pool was and it felt very peaceful and relaxed. Would highly reccomend this villa for anyone looking for a quiet escape. The restaurant Paridisos is only a short walk and is cheap and stunning food. Thanks so much for having us we are looking dor are to coming back again! Molly

A good place to stay

A spacious and well equipped villa with a lovely pool area. Close to the aqua park and Paradiso restaurant. Car hire is needed but a short drive to Corfu town.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the positive review, we are delighted you had a great time in Corfu and we appreciate you staying at Lazy Acre. Glad you enjoyed the property and the location. Paradiso taverna being such a short walk, I agree is a massive bonus! Julie&Gareth
