A slice of paradise in the foothills of Corfu town

We stayed at Villa Alex in June/July 2017 for 12 days. It was exactly as described below and more ! We were met at the airport by Elvira and were then given a quick walk-round by Marios at the house.

Marios built & designed this place himself and it shows - such as stunning place to stay. Location wise it was perfect. 15 min drive into the Old Port and 5 mins from local

cafes and supermarkets. Nature - in the garden of the villa there trees with apples and nectarines ! I saw a bird of prey overhead one day and it was lovely to see the swifts flying round at night.

I contacted Paul M. below (via Marios) before I went to the villa and got a great feeling about the place. We met Spyros (the old chap over the garden wall) and got on great style. Our kids would go round

and he would give us fresh courgettes, cucumbers, tomatoes and even garlic which he grows in his huge allotment. Such a lovely man

We loved the 6 outdoor speakers which were wired up to an amp in the living space. We left it on 88.8 FM all week and miss the “holiday tunes” already. The pool is fairly large if you compare

with other pools on owners direct. You can wash and dry clothes easily too on the back balcony. There is another balcony off the master bedroom which was nice for reading in the evening. They will clean the villa on demand so we had the the place cleaned 3 times over 12 days. We told Elvira to not bother cleaning the BBQ ( we used almost daily) but she cleaned it anyway as she is so house proud. The BBQ is unreal. A 2 metre long grill for charcoal grilling and 2 hobs for gas. I would collect kindle from across the road. It’s even got an outdoor sink alongside and a shower outside the house. There are 2 LIDL’s within 10 mins drive but we used 2 local butchers also

Aqualand is less than 10 mins away and we liked the fact that the location was very central for exploring the beautiful island. Gylfada beach was unreal with a very sandy beach and water sports. We also visited Nissaki and Kassiopi which were stunning.The loungers were so comfy and the AC is very good inside. There is Sat TV with the likes of Nat Geo and Discovery which is great for some down time. There is terrestrial TV in the master bedroom too.Marios was very easy to contact by phone, email and WhatsApp. He works as a sous-chef in the north of the island so would pass by early morning to sometimes clean the pool.Thanks to Marios and Elvira for being such accommodating hosts !

I've never posted a review before ,so I'm going to bullet point it :

Family of 5

2 teenage daughters and my 8 yr old son.

The villa is really clean, and I,m a clean freak !

It's very secure though I don't think it would of bothered us if it wasn't .

Pool - fantastic ,Marios the owner cleaned it every few days I don't know why because it always looked clean to me , but it was a nice touch .

There is plenty air conditioning in the villa ,every bedroom ,so don't worry you will be nice and cool.

The BBQ is amazing ,we used to go to the local butcher( lady) and buy all sorts and then sit out in the evening ,just brilliant , by the way before we went I read that there was an issue with wasps while people ate food ,there isn't ! ( yeah you see one or two but you just swish them away ,trust me I have 2 teenage daughters and they didn't care .

You need a car ,obviously !

The beach at pelekas is the best ,go to Corfu town at night,good luck parking! ,but it is amazing, we went half a dozen times.

In summary the villa is lovely , its in a quite location with amazing views,look out for the old man who has a garden next door, and get some fresh figs off him (free) and chop them in to Greek yogurt for your breakfast,wow.

One of my daughters plays golf so we would drive 10 mins every morning and practice at Corfu Golf Club for just the cost of the balls ,it was too hot by 10:30 to play ! Ta Paul (dad)

My family and I stayed in this gorgeous villa for 2 weeks and I didn't want to leave!

The villa is beautiful, the pool is fantastic, the weather was perfect and for us the location and privacy was exactly what we wanted.

The owners are lovely people and nothing is too much trouble, our two boys loved the pool, being able to play football and basketball and the outside music system!

The birds are incredible too!

If you want a holiday for totally relaxation this is the place to come.

15 minutes in the car takes you right to the centre of corfu town, and 10 minutes can take you to breathe taking scenery.
