About Julia Manetas
Hi my name is Julia and I have visited Corfu for over 30 years.I enjoyed many villa holidays in Corfu. My daughter attended a local school in the village and we have had many a good evening in local tavernas.
My team and I will be on the island during the summer months so you can be assured that some one is on hand should you need anything. If before you arrive you have any special requests or questions I will be more than happy to answer you. you can email me through the website. I look forward to meeting you...
Julia Manetas purchased this villa in 2005
Why Julia Manetas chose Corfu
Villa Pascalia is a very typical Corfiot village. It is really proud of the Achillion Palace and its lovely gardens and its rich history.
We wanted to build in a quiet peaceful area, that was "the real Corfu". Not a tourist resort full of noise and chaos in the summer.
However we did not want to be remote so with only a 10 min drive to Corfu town, ( or a bus ride) and just a five minute drive if we want a dip in the sea or to enjoy the beach side tavernas. The area of gastouri seemed and is perfect for our needs.
What makes this villa unique
Over the years we have had a real mixture of guests. We have had writers and painters, and the more energetic cyclists walker and runners !
we have found that the villa has offered a great central base for those who want to explore, a very peaceful and private retreat for those who do not wish to move around and just want to recharge the batteries .
The families have loved the pool and gardens and the nearby beaches, the teenagers and young have enjoyed the evenings in the cosmopolitan Corfu town, which is full of history designer shops and fabulous bars and restaurants. All have enjoyed the short walk in the evening to the taverna or enjoying there own BBQ.
Corfu airport is just a 10 -15 min drive away, so the holiday begins as soon as you arrive.

Wir hatten einen wunderbaren Aufenthalt in der Villa Pascalia. Bei Ankunft war alles vorbereitet - das Haus ist gut ausgestattet. Besonders hervorzuheben sind die bequemen Betten. Wir besuchen Korfu schon seit vielen Jahren und haben dadurch schon einige Betten erlebt - diese sind mit Abstand bisher die besten gewesen. Man hat einen wunderbaren Weitblick und durch die Alleinlage ist es herrlich ruhig. Korfu-Stadt ist in wenigen Minuten mit dem Auto zu erreichen. Die Kommunikation mit der Vermieterin war sehr gut.
home from home villa in a peaceful but convenient location
Great villa that makes you feel that you're in a home rather than a sterile rental property. Well equipped and lovely pool, although a little cool in October. Location was very private with good views but not too remote and easy walking distance to the local village. Shame the road to Benitses is currently closed making it a longer drive.
Wish we had booked for a month!
Everything other reviewers say is true - Villa Pascalia is a great place to stay. The pool is awesome; large, deep, clean, with lots of space around it and plenty of loungers, chairs and shade. Bats, cats and birds drank from it and entertained us. The villa is also comfortable and incredibly well provisioned inside - good sofas, TWO fridges!, lots of DVDs, books and games and little things like pool towels, torches and household products so you didn't have to buy or bring them - there was even a kagoule and a few sun hats! The kitchen has everything - I think it was the first time we have stayed in a Greek villa where the oven worked and there was even a zester in the drawer!! The beds were extremely comfy (very unusual for me to say that about a vacation bed) and the bedrooms have lots of storage. We had every intention of doing lots of stuff on Corfu but ended up staying at the villa as it was so lovely. However, its not far to Corfu town and beaches and is easy to find, with the village on the doorstep for some basics (they have a little store and a taverna) and Benitses just down the (steep but amazingly well lit at night) road. The kids fell in love with the cats and Julia sent us a postcard when Mummy cat had her kittens - fantastic service, very touched! Overall, its a corker of a place and Julia is fabulously helpful. Book it. I am envious of you already......
A delightful Home-from-home :)
We loved this villa because it was in a great location and also it was like we were house-sitting for friends, it was so well equipped.
My partner was pleased with the wi-fi which held up pretty well through the Euros matches - I loved the fact that feeding the cats wasn't a dirty sin, there was actually a tub of cat food for them! We both liked the open plan living area and the fact that we didn't have to completely clear the fridge at the end which was a treat!
We would happily recommend it for a relaxed family holiday :)
Perfect place to relax and unwind
This villa is fabulous. The facilities are as described and the owner Julia has catered for everything you could possibly need. She is an excellent host.
It was exceptionally clean and well maintained. The garden and views are beautiful.
We have had a relaxing stay and would recommend this villa to anyone. We chose not to hire a car so Julia arranged a taxi to take us to and from the airport and also did our shopping for us to be there on our arrival which made things stress free for us. First class customer service.
We walked into Benitses on several occasions which was long but downhill. Wouldn't recommend the walk back so suggest a taxi or bus. The bus to Corfu Town and Benitses is near the villa opposite the taverna at the end of the lane.
Recommend Mythos Taverna in Benitses, food was superb. The owner Spiros who also runs the supermarket was so friendly and helpful. In fact everyone we met was the same. Which is why we return to Corfu time and time again.
The location of the villa is rural but there is a small bar in Gastouri run by Nikos. It's small and you feel like you're in his front room but mixing with the locals is what it's all about. We had many an evening in there but beware the steep lane home. Take a torch and don't let him give you too many shots!!!
If you are thinking of booking this villa then don't hesitate, it's fabulous.
Amazing Holiday Villa
We are a family with two children, aged 6 and 9.
We spent our summer holiday in Villa Pascalia and the Villa and everything else was just perfect.
Set in a lovely quiet location among Olive and Cypress trees the views don't disappoint!
The Villa itself is spacious and has everything you need and more. There are various outdoor spaces to enjoy as well as a really lovely pool!
Julia is a most helpful owner and always quick to reply should you need anything. If you are looking to relax and explore the beautiful island of Corfu we all highly recommend Villa Pascalia as your base.
There are various books/folders in the villa ,in which the owner recommends places to explore and eat in and all the ones we have tried have been lovely.
We had the best time! Thanks
