About thomas Katsaros

Thomas Katsaros was born in Kalami Corfu at 1961. His love for his birth place and a purely sentimental force in the very beginning were the material for everything he does. He, his wife Alexandra and his two doughters created the tavern “Thomas's place” offering traditional greek cuisine, its unique position by the waves and its atmospheric, local colour.

Thomas organises fishing trips with his traditional boat and also is the editor of My Kerkyra magazine.

The perfect place to relax

  • 5 of 5

This villa has the best pool in the village. There's everything here for a perfect holiday. You will enjoy privacy, peace and quiet in a modern villa. You have all the electrical appliances you need from a food processor to a washing machine. There is a supermarket a 15 minute walk away and they deliver to your door or bring you home with your shopping. The villa is clean. Wi fi is free and quick. Thomas and his daughter Antonia will do all they can to make your stay as enjoyable as they can. They did for us and we will certainly be back.

Fantastic villa. Could not wish for a better pool. Air con was good. Villa fully re decorated.

  • 5 of 5

Could not of wished for a better villa or better location. I would recommend hiring a car but if you don't want to then you can walk to the village. Thomas and his daughter Antonia were excellent hosts and very friendly. Nothing was any trouble. The whole family enjoyed spending time round the fabulous pool area. Excellent bbq for cooking during the day or evening if you don't want to go out. If you do go out then Thomas has a taverna on the beach which is called Thomas place which is very good. I would also recommend Dimitri taverna which is the closest resteraunt to villa. This is owned by Thomas brother. Would definitely book again. However long you book is not long enough. Thank you Thomas and Antonia

Wonderful villa, pool and view, wonderful hosts! Delightful stay in Kalami!

  • 4 of 5

We loved it! The pool is huge! The girls (9 and 6) had a fabulous time. The pool area is so well designed, spacious, the shade awning with nets and comfy sofas make such a difference! We spent time there reading and playing card games safely out of the direct sun, but with a little breeze and the stunning view. Perfect! The pool and villa are so private! No-one can walk by or overlook you there. The house has everything you need, is cool and clean, and everything works! (plus the AC and pool pumps etc are all quiet - so nice!). The mozzie nets over the beds are great (vital for me!) and look lovely too. Thomas and Antonia could not have been better hosts. Thomas was so kind as to rescue a lost suitcase for us from the airport - 45mins drive away. What an angel! Antonia's welcome smile is a lasting memory. They just make everything easy. And our regular cat visitors made our stay purrfect!

The essence of corfu

  • 5 of 5

Sunshine, tavernas on the beach, stunning views. The only fault was ours in that we only went for 7 nights! Thomas and his family are very friendly and welcoming.

Amazing villa, overlooking a beautiful harbour, quiet location

  • 5 of 5

This is perfect for a quiet holiday.

50 mins transfer in hire car from Corfu airport.

Met by Antonia who showed us around villa.

Newly refurbished kitchen well equipped. No toaster or microwave though which didn't matter to us.

Fabulous pool which was immaculately clean as was the whole place.

Location is not overlooked therefore offers full privacy including private parking with electric gates.

Antonia lives below & gran at the back but we rarely heard anything and it is not possible to see each other so again not a problem.

Maid was offered but as we preferred to be left alone we didn't need it.

Aircon available all round, we only used bedroom which was very good.

Big TV but we didn't use this but no DVD player although we were offered use of Antonia's.

2 dining areas were great & the covered area by the pool was fabulous.

Great local supermarket which is ok in price although we stocked up at Lidl just outside airport.

Resort of Kalami is walkable (10-15 mins) through nearby hotel but not for faint hearted, over 200 non stop steps!! Parking can be a problem as it is limited.

We ate at Thomas Place (villa owner) it was fantastic. We Also ate at Durells and had fresh fish which was also ok.

All in all definatley going back.

Evenings were spent nipping down to the beach to jump off the jetty, snorkel, then go back to villa to watch the light fade over the harbour.

Wonderful hosts and great villa!

  • 5 of 5

The Villa was perfect for our stay in Corfu. The hosts were extremely nice, welcoming and willing to make sure everything was going well for us on holiday. We had to leave early because our travel plans had changed suddenly, but it was no problem dealing with the hosts. They were great. The Villa has a well equipped kitchen to make meals, coffee, tea and a lovely terrace with an amazing view to enjoy it all on. The pool is not heated, but the Villa get so much sun during the day, the pool warms up to a nice temperature. The shaded and bug screened area by the pool was exceptionally nice.
