About the property

Set within a Quiet Hamlet near Kassiopi, with Private Pool, Short Drive/Walk To A Sandy Beach

The villa Olive Grove is a beautiful villa set in a secluded elevated position which offers versatile spacious, comfortable accommodation both inside and out with its own 'Infinity' pool, parking and stunning views of both sea and sunsets which can be enjoyed from the extensive terracing surrounding this beautiful home. Situated in an idyllic position amongst olive groves in a quiet hamlet, it is only a brief walk to the traditional Greek village of Perithia which offers several supermarkets, excellent family tavernas, cafe and post office. Although in an extremely private area, a short walk will take you to St Spyridon family friendly sandy beach. This area is also very popular with walkers and naturalists. Alternatively a short drive will either take you to 'Hydropolis' water park near Acharavi, the fishing village of Kassiopi (about 5-6km), various beach coves or 'Old Perithia'. Inland is mountainous with fantastic views of the coast and Albania is just across the water.

About Mr and Mrs Dawson

We are an ordinary family who loved being in Corfu so much we built a house there!! and are now offering others the opportunity to enjoy it as much as we do in a rustic setting to allow you to experience as near to the greek way of life as possible.

We now have many families that return to us year after year, and have a visitors book at the house for comments and tips from our guests to future guests sharing their experiences, likes and dislikes

Why Mr and Mrs Dawson chose Pelekito

The Olive Grove is privately owned (and built) by us and not a company - it is a much loved holiday home for our family when not rented out.

All rental enquiries are managed by us which hopefully provides the personal touch to be able to answer any queries and cover most requests.

Notes on accommodation: All rooms have air-conditioning units with remote controls. Windows and patio doors have mosquito nets. The villa is situated in its own grounds and provides guests with total seclusion, but nearby facilities can be easily reached especially by car (which is recommended). The villa is owned by an English family who can be contacted, also help is easily obtained when at the villa as it is maintained by local man who will introduce himself to you, and can be contacted in case of need. Although set just outside a typically Greek hamlet there are various nationalities living in the area (should the need arise) and most are English speaking. Outside: Outside covered dining eating/area for 6 people. Sun Loungers and tables by pool. BBQ. Outside furniture. Parking for several cars. Villa is set in its own private grounds in olive groves and not over-looked. This is particularly enhanced by its elevated position meaning it overlooks the track to house and over the olive trees to nearby lake and sea, providing a cooling breeze in the Summer heat. The views are absolutely beautiful esp when the sun is setting providing magical scenes. Outside area is particularly spacious with comfortable sun loungers and tables around the pool, as well as the eating area. There is extensive outside lighting all around the pool terraces for night time use. All rooms in the villa lead outside, and all the bedrooms have their own outside space. There is a particularly enchanting rock to the back of the house which when lit is rather stunning. The surrounding groves provide the perfect place to walk and explore, meandering down to the nearby coast. Due to the steps around the place small children/toddlers may need 'extra' watching and of course when near the pool! Utility Room: Washing machine located in en-suite bathroom. Iron, mop and bucket, hoover cleaning equipment in villa. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Bath towels and linen provided for use inside the villa. Pool/beach towels to be provided by guests. The villa is cleaned weekly, sheets and towels also changed weekly (more often by arrangement if required). Pool maintained on a regular basis. Other: There is a walk down to the sandy beach of St Spyridon, through the olive groves of Pelekito which takes about 20 mins.

Lovely location, gorgeous views, nice beaches

  • 4 of 5

Nice spacious villa that is pretty well located for nearby places of interest. Pool was great fun. Sun was fierce on the terraces. Very restful and beautiful surroundings. Privileged to have seen some of the Corfiot wildlife like fireflies, butterflies, mantis, table lizards and others......!

Peaceful villa with fabulous views

  • 4 of 5

Situated among olive groves in the north-east corner of Corfu, this villa has dramatic views of the coast, sea and offshore islands with spectacular sunsets most evenings. The infinity pool is regularly used by swallows skimming the surface for a drink, fireflies flit among the trees at night and house martins build their nests under the veranda roof. At the end of the road, there's an ice cream parlour selling really good home-made ice cream, and shops and tavernas not far away. Everything you could ask for!

Olive Grove, een prachtig huis op een uitgelezen plek

  • 4 of 5

We hebben een heerlijke korte vakantie gehad in dit ruime huis in de olijfgaarden van Pelekito. Het huis zelf is schoon, netjes en comfortabel, beschikt over een prima keuken, en drie slaapkamers met goede bedden. In de woonkamer is TV met kabelaansluiting en, sinds deze week ook een goed werkende WiFi. Rond het huis zijn ruime terrassen op verschillende niveaus die ruimte bieden voor zon en schaduw. Het fijne zwembad was nog wat te koud in mei, maar weerspiegelde 's avonds de mooiste zonsondergangen boven zee. Voor rust, ruimte en privacy zit je hier goed. De plek in het noordoosten biedt ruime mogelijkheden voor prachtige dagtochten met de auto door spectaculaire berglandschappen en naar baaien en vissersplaatsen die aanzienlijk meer toeristisch zijn. Verder verliep het contact met de eigenaar heel plezierig, en was er ter plekke een zeer behulpzame en snel bereikbare prettige vertegenwoordiger. Aanrader.

Car: recommended

Special interest holidays:

There are boat hire facilities based locally, for those who wish to practice their sea skills!

Local dive centers in nearby villages inc Kassiopi.

Local Waterpark 'Hydropolis'- 10 min drive from Villa

Numerous coves for snorkelling

Historical interest / Greek culture re 'Durrell' followers.


The local sandy beach is St Spiridon (approx 8-900mts) along the road which can be walked to, however as it only takes a few minutes to drive to, we would advise this, unless a keen walker. There are various other nearby beaches and coves which can be reached easily by car in 5-10 minutes including 'sandy beach' which is a local family friendly beach with lots of sand, shallow waters and tavernas.


Corfu Airport is about 1 hour's drive away from the villa. There are frequent flights to and from the island throughout the season March-November, although it is possible to get to Corfu via Athens all year, also ferries from Italy (inc venice) and mainland Greece which provide an alternative means of travel.

(Directions to the property provided)


Walking distance to Pelekito and Perithia - short driving distance to local villages inc kassiopi, Acharavi and Roda.

Further Details:

We would recommend hiring a car whilst in Corfu to get the most out of your stay and are happy to recommend a local firm who will meet you at the airport with a car and directions. They can also assist you with any trips you may wish to book whilst on the island. There is also a local taxi service complete with 'entertaining' driver who will transport you wherever you wish to go.

We can access a cot if required at a small hire fee - contact owner for details, also travel/ booster seat available at villa re high chair use for toddler mealtimes etc.

Pool is updated and re-tiled with 'mosaic tiles' yearly. (Size approx 23ft x 16ft)

Please contact owner for any other info you require about the Villa as it a privately owned
