Overview

About the property

Villa in Pelekas, Corfu - Set In An Olive Grove, Just A Short Drive From The Idyllic Beach Of Pelekas

The two bedrooms (one double, one twin) make it ideal for two couples or a family looking for relaxation away from the hustle and bustle of the main resorts. The cosmopolitan village of Pelekas with its wide variety of bars, shops and traditional Greek Tavernas is only a 5 minute drive away. The sandy beach resort of Agios Gordis is 10 minutes by car, as is the golf course and it’s only 20 minutes to Corfu Town and the airport. The cottage is the middle one of a development of three linked detached properties. Its 6m x 4m pool and south facing garden make the ideal setting for sun-worshipers, with the covered veranda and olive tree providing a welcome retreat in the shade. Inside, it is furnished to a high standard with the high ceilings and open plan lounge/dining area giving a light and airy feel.

About Andy Brickell

We are Andy & Mags, pictured in the Pink Panther Pizzeria in Pelekas village and we live in Falkirk, Scotland. I am originally from Manchester and work as a piping designer in the oil and gas industry. My current job is in Shetland, which has many similarities to Corfu, it just lacks the fantastic summer weather! Mags is a stay at home mum at the moment, but has worked all over the UK as a document controller.

Andy Brickell purchased this villa in 2009

Why Andy Brickell chose Parelioi

We love Corfu and holidayed there a few times, visiting my cousin who lives there, before deciding to buy a property. My cousin's business is villa management, so this was a major reason in our decision to buy a property to rent out in Corfu. We know that the villa will always be presented perfectly for all our guests and that in the very rare event of any problems that they will be resolved quickly and efficiently.

What makes this villa unique

We love the location of Pelekas Cottage. It's in a beautiful and peaceful setting within an olive grove, yet only a few minutes drive from the village and beach. Whenever we go for our holidays I'm totally relaxed within minutes of unpacking :-)

Pelekas is perfectly situated for exploring the island. it's only 20 minutes drive to Corfu town and both the north and south coast beaches are within easy reach, with some fabulous scenery on the way.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We did appreciate the quietness of the place and it is the perfect place for kids!!We do hope to get the chance to go back to Corfu next year (Easter time I heard it’s wonderful) and if we do we will definitely return to Pelekas Cottage. (Anita, Cyprus. July 2009)



'we stayed at this lovely property in June 2010. The owners have thought of everything - Pelekas cottage is well equipped and beautifully maintained inside and out (including the small, immaculate swimming pool).

A great base from which to explore Corfu by car; close to popular sandy beaches on the west Coast and a short drive to Corfu town, in fact, nowhere is very far away including many very beautiful areas, untouched by tourism!

Great communications with the helpful owners, easy access to local contact if needed and the lovely location made this our most successful self catering holiday yet - highly recommended! ' (Hilary & Steve. UK)

Peaceful villa

  • 5 of 5

Great place 5star. Nice pool for sunbathing. Not to far to go to the village of pelekas. Just a pity about those dogs barking at night.

Excellent Villa Accomodation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 10 days in this villa and absolutely loved it. Communication with Andy was prompt and informative and we had no problem finding the accommodation, approximately 20 mins drive from the airport. The villa is beautiful with a pool that was a perfect size for two adults and two children and it was spotlessly clean, towels were provided and air conditioning was very effective in the two bedrooms. Wifi was available and very speedy. We had a hire car recommended by Andy (ValuePlus) and this was an excellent choice, as the car pick up location made it very easy to get on the road to the Villa.

Overall we had a fabulous holiday and we would thoroughly recommend this accommodation and will definitely book it next time we travel to Corfu.

Perfectly formed holiday retreat

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a wonderful week in Pelekas Cottage.

It provided a clean,contemporary and tranquil base for us to return to after a day touring the Island.

The pool was immaculate and serviced three times whilst we were there. There was plenty of shaded outdoor seating .

Andy the owner was always contactable and helpful,we arrived late at night and he arranged a delivery of groceries for our arrival .

We would happily return to Pelekas Cottage when we next visit Corfu .

Lovely Place

  • 5 of 5

This villa is in an amazing location, just off the road, so easy to find and to navigate around Corfu, but very peaceful and extremely private! The private pool is lovely, so good to be able to pop in whenever you want. Plenty of outside space both in the shade and sun. Inside, the villa is really clean and very well maintained. Lovely walk-in shower! All the facilities you will ever need.

We stayed for 11 nights and had a hire car, in which we explored the beautiful island. A trip to the water park is a lovely day out, as is a day trip to Albania.

We soon discovered that the best place for an evening meal is without doubt Pelekas. What a lovely village perched on the side of a mountain. The restaurants serve excellent food in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. There are plenty to choose from, couldn't choose a favourite to be honest, just give them all a try! Nice little shops to browse around and a very good bakery!

We couldn't recommend this villa enough, what a great place!

Holiday hideaway

  • 5 of 5

Just spent 2 weeks at Pelekas Cottage and don't really want to go home! It's peaceful and quiet, the weather has been glorious.

The cottage is perfect: beautifully decorated and well equipped and very well maintained. The pool is just right and is checked 3 times a week.

It's in a really good central location, just a 15/20 minute drive from Corfu Town (which we loved) and is in a good position to explore Corfu from. We traveled the length and breath of the island, to all places the guide book recommended, but we were always glad to get back to the Cottage.

There are loads of great tavernas in Pelekas, and tons of supermarkets in the area.

The owners have been great, answered our emails very promptly when we had questions. They have a good support team here who keep the place clean and tidy.

With so much of the world to explore, we don't normally go anywhere twice, but if we came back to Corfu, then we would definitely come back to Pelekas Cottage.

Thank you Andy and Mags :-)

Pelekas Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Pelekas Cottage is as described, neat and tidy well presented and well equipped. It is in a rural location and very peaceful. I would suggest that a car is essential as you are not really within walking distance of any amenities. Well situated for exploring the rest of the Island. Communication with Andy the owner was very good and he was able to offer helpful advice. We would get takeaway pies and pastry's from the little bakery on the corner in Pelekas village which is excellent and spent most days exploring various beaches. We would have no hesitation in recommending this property to others.
