|Minimum Stay||1 - 6 nights|
A newly built 3 bedroom villa Daphne is located in one of the most beautiful places in Corfu, above long sandy beaches, just below the village of Pelekas, on the west coast of Corfu. Stunning open wide sea view accommodates every point in the villa, and also allows, vacation complete privacy and intimacy. The villa is fully fitted to an exceptionally high contemporary standard, with full central heating and air conditioning. All rooms are of larger than average size with en-suite shower room. Private infinity pool - 10m x 5m, is maximum depth of 1.7m with built-in steps and underwater lighting. There is an also private off-road parking
After our late arrival we had to search the house a little bit.In the middle of the night the way to the villa looks really a little bit scary, but at the next morning we saw the beauty of the villa and the wonderfull view to the sea. Honestly speaking, i hoped the sea was a little bit closer - but anyway, the view was fantastic. Your house is really on a good standard and the price you are asking for is absolutely reasonable. The only thing which was not ok was the pool - at the day of our arrival it wasn´t cleaned and there was approx. 10cm water missing. Also the pool pump wasn´t working. We informed the contact (Aris) and he informed the pool service. The guy came the same day, cleaned the pool and solved the problem - it´s seems that there was some technical problem and he fixed it.
During our holiday we visited Corfu town several times in the evening - its really a very relaxed atmosphere there and the narrow alleys in the old town are beautifull. In the day times we visited some beaches or just stayed at the house and the pool. Two times we had our dinner at the taverna Alexandros in Pelekas - the panoramic view and the food are outstanding. The prices are also good. Furthermore we visited the Keyser´s throne at one evening - the view was also stunning!!
Due to the hot weather (up to 45° during the daytime) we dind´t see that much from the island - but finally we all had a great holiday and came back relaxed to the rainy germany.
A lot of positive points: spacious and comfortable villa, fantastic pool very well maintained and clean, nice sea view, easy access road (despite what I read from other travelers), nice location (close to several beautiful beaches), away from busy corfu town, etc.
A few negative points: wi-fi rarely working and extremely slow (finally not the most important when you are in holidays), wasps and mosquito (probably the same everywhere on the island), bed mattress quality
Suggestion to the owner: provide a pack with product for wash-machine, garbage bags, coffee filters, ... This will avoid having to buy everything for only 1 week....
Overall, nice house to be recommended.
My husband and I spent a fabulous week here from the 18th July. We are 60.
The house is well equipped with everything you need + parking. The only thing I didn't see and could have done with was a microwave. Every bedroom has its own bath/shower room and there is a separate upstairs toilet as well - very sensible.
There was a wasps nest in the corner of the roof on the upstairs balcony which could be a problem for some people. If you leave them alone they will leave you alone. Wasps are necessary for pollinating, so they are an important part of the ecosystem.
Although there is a neighbouring house right next door to you they have been built to allow for a high degree of privacy. Nevertheless, the peacefulness will depend a lot on the neighbours you have. We were lucky - our neighbours were pretty quiet and out a lot, but it could have gone the other way if there had been a big group next door.
The pool is fabulous and not over-chlorinated (thank goodness). Big and with a view across the sea. The forest to the left ensures seclusion from that side. There is a small portable BBQ (we ate out every day so we didn't need it), a garden water hose on the terrace and a sprinkler for the grass area. The shaded dinning gazebo area was lovely. There were enough sun beds for six people, but only one sunshade. There is no outdoor shower for the pool so you will need to go inside to shower off. The dirt track to the house is fine, but I would recommend a 4-wheel drive - especially if you want to see more of the smaller villages on the island. Otherwise the roads are surprisingly well-maintained.
Makis and Feh, who take care of the villa, were very helpful and brought us wifi that connected to the phone line. Be aware that this doesn't always work and any downloads can take quite a while. It is extremely slow, but you are on holiday so be patient when you are using it and be prepared for when it doesn't work. Makis was very considerate and also phoned up-front to let you know when they would be round (mid-week) to maintain the pool and clean the house.
The room sizes, pool and terrace areas are very generous in proportions. During the day you can watch the swallows swoop down and drink from the pool - at night the bats come for a drink. On a clear night you have a wonderful starry sky. We actually lay out watching the galaxy move and saw a total of three shooting stars one night.
All in all a wonderful villa which we are happy to recommend.
The villa was exactly as described but the view was breathtaking. The villa was spacious, cool and had everything we needed. The managers could not have been more helpful or accommodating. Highly recommended
This is a fantastic. So quiet I cannot stress you don't hear cars, bikes nothing just birds, bees and the nature sounds do the island. You are totally private by the pool, the management are very helpful but do not interrupt your stay, well worth going on a boat hire trip which the manager can get a good rate for you. We loved tootling around the islands on a boat for a day. Also take a drive by car around the island to explore. Don't be put off the roads all easy to drive around a bit hairy at times but you get used to it. Maid service great. Everything is so suitable. Hope to stay again.
A stylish villa with a nice view. Close to the charming city of Pelekas the wonderful Pelekas beach, and the water theme park Aquaworld.
Be sure to hire a car and you will find this location at least one step above any other on the island in this price range.
We loved our stay there and would gladly come back one day.
We were really impressed by the house and the pool. It is even better than it looks on the pictures. You need a car, because it is far from Pelekas and the beach. you can walk to Pelekas in 15 min, the beach is 25 min away. In the evening it is very dark and feels even more far away. Our overall impression is good, but two of the airconditions did not work, and during our two week stay they didn't manage to fix it. When you pay this much you could expect it to be fixed right away. The owners were really nice and tried to help us, but still we had no aircondition for two weeks.
Pelekas is a really nice little village, we would certanly come back to this lovely place.
