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.

Jane Makris purchased this villa in 2004

Amazing views, great villa, fantastic hosts

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful villa built on three levels, it is very spacious and well presented. Outside is a great pool and sunbathing area, with the most stunning view beyond and there are sun terraces on all levels of the villa to take advantage of it. The games area at the top (with table tennis and football) was a great hit with my youngest. Jane and Alex were really nice, eager to help with directions to places to visit and even posted back some things we accidentally left behind! Definitely the best villa we've booked with owners direct so far.

A simply stunning place to stay. Amazing views and spacious, tasteful, well-equipped villa. Superb!

  • 5 of 5

Jane and Alex could not have been more welcoming hosts to their beautiful villa. The rural setting meant we had a really authentic Greek experience away from the resorts but easy to get to lots of places when we wanted. A spacious house, with incredible views, and a gorgeous interior. They had thought of everything to make the stay wonderful and were on hand if we needed anything. Great for kids with the pool and the games room. Very clean and well kept.

Thank you both for such a wonderful holiday! As you know, it was a difficult time for the family and you ensured that we had a peaceful and relaxing break. Hope we can visit again.

Beautiful home with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

5 of us had a perfect week in Corfu staying at this house. Directions to the property were easy to follow and we were met by Alex at the house just an hour after landing. Even though we arrived late at night, Alex was there to meet us and show us around which was much appreciated. There were even a few essentials in the fridge so we didn't have to venture out on our first night. As we arrived in the dark, the view the following morning was breathtaking, perched in a prime spot we had unspoilt views to Corfu town and over the sea to Albania.

We spent the first day settling in and relaxing around the lovely pool watching the kids have fun with the lilos.

We spent the week alternating between pool and beach and then eating out either in Corfu town or one of the many beach Tavernas. We found some beautiful and quiet beaches, some recommended by Alex so make sure you ask for tips.

The house has everything you'd ever need for a lovely family holiday. My lasting memory will be sitting on the roof terrace watching the sun go down over the mountain. If we come back to Corfu, we will probably stay here again.

Paradise in the hills

  • 5 of 5

Family holiday 6 people 2 children.

Pre arrival Alex & Jane were informative and sent us easy to follow directions from the airport to the villa.

On arrival we met Alex who showed us around & left us a key, Alex and Jane had gone Above and beyond all expectations, leaving mosquito deterrents in all rooms, food and drinks, towels & even down to the little things like shower gels, soaps, sunscreens & a really informative information pack on the area the wildlife and the best places to visit, the villa was clean and well maintained the pool was clean and was cleaned during our visit.

We have never experienced a more relaxing holiday :) the house, pool, garden & wildlife we experienced will never be forgotten, it was a joy to wake up each morning to beautiful butterflies & swallows drinking from the pool the children never complained of being bored as the pool and games room kept them thoroughly entertained & the presence of ships not only in view from the pool but also in pictures around the villa kept our oldest boy captured.

we could not fault the property in any way & it is clear that a lot of love has gone into the villa, leaving was the only sad time and we will look forward every day to one day return.
