Villa Neraida is absolutely wonderful and we can't wait to go back!
George and Anita are great hosts and you can tell the real care they have taken with everything at the villa. All the fixtures and fittings are of a high quality and their attention to detail really shows. Beautiful bathrooms, bedrooms, kitchen and lounge and that's just the interior. Outside is gorgeous, what a view from the terraces and pool :)
We loved the area and if we weren't at the villa we spent our days swimming in the nearby coves and eating in the tavernas. We would highly recommend renting a boat and pottering up the coast to the harbour at Agios Stefanos and visiting the Eucalyptus Taverna or the glorious Kouloura Port where you can have lunch and then a swim in the crystal clear water. Nearer to the villa is the Taverna Gylfa which was excellent for both the food and the warm and welcoming staff.
We can't recommend Villa Neraida and the area enough. See you again soon!

We stayed at villa Neraida for a week in September and loved it from the moment we arrived. Spotlessly clean inside and out. The design of the villa is fantastic and it feels like a home rather than just a holiday let. Great showers and lovely quiet air con! The pool is great, enjoyed eating out next to the pool and wonderful views. We walked down to local supermarket on the main road which takes about 15 minutes, although discovered a quicker but steeper route opposite the villa. You can also cross the main road and walk down to a lovely little beach. Try Vitamins Taverna, they will collect and return you back, we had some lovely dishes. Also Taverna Glyfa which is lovely for lunch, with a small beach below to relax after your meal, a small parking area is available. All in all a relaxing, sunny and enjoyable week.
thank you very much for your kind words and the compliments.
as well as for the tipps to other travellers and guests. it was great having you as guest and we are happy that you had a great and relaxing holiday. we will continue to improve our villa, surroundings and services in the future to. we hope to welcome you again in our beautiful island and your home away from home. our best wishes to you & yours - george, anita, spiros & the neraida team.
No less than Perfect
We have visited Corfu once before as a family staying more North West of the Island. During that stay we ended up traveling around the North East side where this property is located.
This time we were staying right in the centre part of everything we wanted for our holiday in the most fantastic of villas.
Stunning location with spectacular views. This property has been everything you need for a family or party of 4. Incredibly comfortable with all the luxuries you would wish for set in a beautifully modernised villa. Every detail has been thought of in the way it looks and the way it functions. A wonderful and comfortable place to be based in, surrounded by lovely beaches and restaurants. Highly recommend hiring a boat for the day and visiting hidden coves and beaches. Hard villa to leave at all as the perfect holiday can be had staying right exactly where you are!

Beautiful Villa, well maintained. Stunning views. Fab pool
George & Anita welcomed us to their Villa & showed us round. It is a stunning villa. Very well appointed & finished to a high spec. Lots of little extras eg mosquito blinds on doors & windows & filtered water tap. Bedrooms & showers excellent & spotlessly clean. Pool beautiful & well maintained. We didnt need it heating as it was so hot but that would be a bonus in the colder months. We all had a lovely holiday & left with heavy hearts hoping that we will return one day.
thank you for your wonderful and touching review - it was great having the four of you as guests - you are wonderful. we, our crew and the villa neraida are thanking you with all our hearts and will always try to get better for our respected guests.
for you and your friends - villa neraida will always will be your home away from home and you will always be welcome back at neraida and corfu - we send you hugz and much corfiot sun!
Perfect tranquility in a stylish setting
We loved this villa, perched high on a hillside with stunning views across the sea and up to the mountains. This traditional stone-built property has been stylishly renovated to a very high spec. The pool is a nice size for four and the outside space/seating areas gives plenty of scope for al fresco dining and entertaining. We couldn't recommend this villa highly enough
dear michael & friends
