About Jane Makris
Alex(Greek) and Jane(English) are the owners of this lovely spacious villa which nestles in the picturesque hills close to Corfu Town. The villa was built as a family home where time could be spent away from the mass tourism and somewhere to truly relax in beautiful natural surroundings. Alex has recently retired as a General Manager of one of the island's largest hotels and fully understands the importance of always trying to offer complete guest satisfaction. Being a family home, guests can enjoy the personal touches which makes the villa feel very 'homely' rather than a rental property. Throughout your stay we are always available to help with any requirements and it is our wish for all our guests to have a wonderful holiday.

We have just come back from the most wonderful 2 weeks staying at Jane and Alex’ beautiful home. It really is the most idyllic spot, and I think our comments really just follow previous reviews, as it really was faultless. The views from the property are breathtaking and with the different terraces on each level, we enjoyed meals at different levels each day whilst watching the swallows swooping by day and bats by night, listening to the sound of the cicadas in the trees and the goat bells ringing down the hill. Our first days visit to the bakery was one we will never forget, stepping back in time watching the baker drawing these exquisite fresh loaves from his wood fired bread oven along with freshly made Greek pastries, the spinach ones are particularly recommended! We also loved our visits to Stekis taverna, just a 2 minute stroll down the road, where we always received a really warm welcome and enjoyed sitting watching the world go by.
The property is in such a great location and very easy to get to some fantastic sandy beaches on the west coast. Our favourites were Agios Gordis and a rather off the beaten track one at Kanouli, both had the most amazing turquoise blue seas and brilliant for snorkelling.
Jane and Alex were the most fantastic hosts, so warm and welcoming and literally had everything covered at the house you could possibly wish for. They were so happy to help with anything and had lots of advice on where to go, and it really was an absolute pleasure to meet them, and enjoy a beer with Alex by the pool!
The swimming pool is absolutely spotlessly clean and looks amazing at night when lit up. We loved all the games upstairs and our daughter I think had exhausted every card in Articulate and Tension by the end of the holiday! 😊�
We hope to return in the future and honestly, we could not recommend this property any more highly, it has been difficult coming home!!
Many thanks again Jane and Alex,
With very best wishes.
Thank you so much for your wonderful review! It was a pleasure to have your lovely family staying in our villa and we are so pleased you had such a good time. We hope one day in the future we will have the pleasure of welcoming you back.
Very best wishes

Fabulous villa and a wonderful welcome!
As a family of 4 with two teenage boys we found this villa to exceed all our hopes.
It is extremely spacious and well maintained. There are lovely views from all floors and the pool area is perfect.
Alex and Jane were helpful before the holiday even began; providing details about hire car companies and the best places for boat hire. They were there to welcome us on arrival and they even came to say goodbye at the end of the holiday. There was a fantastic welcome pack, in fact don’t have any last minute panics that you might have forgotten to pack enough books or toiletries - Alex and Jane have thought of everything!
You will definitely enjoy a holiday in this villa!
Thank you so much for taking the time to post a review and your kind words are much appreciated. We are very happy you enjoyed your stay in our villa and look forward to welcoming you back one day in the future.
Very best wishes

A real home from home with amazing scenery and great pool!
We arrived to a lovely warm welcome from Jane and Alex, the villa was just perfect for us, with all the amenities needed for a family of five and lots of thoughtfull touches which made our stay relaxing and enjoyable.
We all enjoyed the pool which was crystal clear and has great views accross the island (and also has a shower for rinsing off) and the games room with its open balcony makes for a perfect evening under the stars with the sounds of wildlife all around.
We found the villa location just right for us, we had a hire car and found it easy to visit nearby beeches, restaurants and Corfu town. Parking our hire car in the villa garage to stay nice and cool!
Alex and Jane were so helpful, leaving contact numbers for us if we needed (which we didn’t) and they have a wealth of advice and information about the island and places to visit.
Thanks for a lovely stay, highly recommended!
Thank you so much for your kind comments and taking the time to post a review. We are so pleased to hear you had such an enjoyable holiday staying in our villa. We always aim for our guests to feel at home and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.
We hope we will have the pleasure of welcoming you back some time in the near future.

Lovely mountainside property with great views
A really lovely house, with great amenities (TV, Netflix), air-conditioning in the bedrooms and well-stocked kitchen with ample dishwasher tablets, bin bags, herbs etc (which is unusual but very welcome). Situated up the mountain, about 10 mins drive in quiet isolated splendour, Local bakery 5 mins up road. Easy access to both sides of island. Alex and Jane very helpful in putting us in touch with boat hire company in Corfu town (a lot cheaper than the one we found in Benitses).
Thank you so much for taking the time to post a review. We are so pleased to hear you had an enjoyable stay and appreciated all the facilities offered in our villa. It was a pleasure having you to stay and we hope one day in the future to welcome you back.

A characterful Greek villa
We had a wonderful holiday in this comfortable villa which felt like a home away from home. It was great for our family as the teenagers could have their own space as the villa itself was over 3 floors, not counting the pool area. Fantastic views, different from each terrace. Location was perfect, a lovely breeze on a hot day. We loved the bakery which was just a short walk up the road and had fresh warm bread and pastries for breakfast each morning. Lovely country walking from the front door with a walkers cafe en route. Jane and Alex were so helpful to us before and during our stay. We can’t thank them enough.
Thank you so much for your lovely review. We were so pleased you enjoyed your stay and it was a pleasure to have you staying in our villa. It is so important to us for our guests to feel at home and totally relaxed.
We hope we will have the opportunity to welcome you and your family back sometime in the future.

Parfaite villa à Corfou
Très belle villa dans un petit village de montagne facile d'accès. Jane et Alex sont des hôtes vraiment charmants. Alex veille discrètement mais personnellement à ce que tout soit parfait et est toujours prêt à vous aider pour quoique ce soit. Tout est fait pour que l'on se sente comme chez soi dans cette très belle maison très bien aménagée et très propre où tout fonctionne parfaitement (wifi, climatisation, nombreux appareils ménagers, TV (en Grec!), lecteur DVD...) . Plein d'attentions sont disséminées dans toute la maison ( frigidaire bien garni à l'arrivée, plein de produits de toilette dans la salle de bain, produits anti-moustiques, lessives etc...).La literie est très bien. La maison est sur 4 niveaux donc pas mal d'escaliers à parcourir... En fait il n'y a qu'une seule vraie salle de bain mais 3 WC. Il y a un garage intérieur mais nous avons préféré utiliser la place réservée à l'extérieur beaucoup plus commode. Les parties extérieures sont superbes. le jardin est très joli et très bien entretenu. La piscine est extra, jolie et très propre avec une douche à côté . Les transats sont parfaits! La vue est magnifique!!! . La plage la plus proche (Benitses) est sans intérêt pour se baigner, les plages situées à l'Ouest sont toutes à environ 30 minutes de routes assez sinueuses ( comme presque partout à Corfou!) mais sont superbes et l'ambiance varie de l'une à l'autre. Le GPS est quasi obligatoire à Corfou où les routes sont très mal indiquées. Le petit restaurant situé à 2 km est très sympa et très "local". L'excursion d'une journée en bateau sur les îles de Paxos et Antipaxos vaut le coup.
The nearest beaches can be reached within 3.5 to 5km taking approx 10 mins by car. One of Corfu's best beaches Ag. Gordios is a distance of 10km from the villa. Also Halikounas' excellent sandy beach is only a half hour drive away.
Car hire is essential and can be arranged by the owner or individually. The airport is 12km and Corfu Town/Port is only 13km from the villa.
13km Corfu town and Port approx 20 min drive. 12km airport. 8km Achilleion Palace. 2km village of Ag.Deka. Also drive/walk to top of Ag. Deka Mountain for magnificent views of the island and mainland Greece. 15km Corfu's large Water Park.
Just 2km (3 minutes by car) is the village of Ag.Deka which has a small supermarket selling all essential needs including village baked fresh bread. Stavros village (a couple of minutes walk) also has a bakery.
