Hi Alan

Just wanted to say thank you for use of your lovely villa. We had a great time - the villa was perfect for us and in a great location. I have to say it is one of the best equipped that I have ever stayed in! My daughter says to thank you specifically for the excellent wifi.

Perfect villa, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a relaxing holiday in a beautiful location then Villa Ollios will be perfect for you. The villa overlooks Kalami and has lovely views down to the bay. The villa itself has a homely feel, traditionally Greek but also quite modern. You'll find everything you need in the villa, in fact it is one of the best equipped villas we have ever stayed in. Special mention to the excellent, high-speed wifi and tv which we had no problems with whatsoever. We also loved the hammock at the end of the pool. 5 stars, we would definitely go back. The only slight difficulty would be the steps - there are about 90 down to the villa so it can be hard work going up them all when it's hot!

Owner's Response: Thanks Teresa, so pleased you and your family enjoyed your stay at the Villa. There are actually 72 steps down to the Villa....counted many times by my 3 children over the 16 years we have owned the property. We regard it as a small price to pay to have such a fantastic view...Alan

Perfect

Great villa. Near Kalami, but not in the middle meaning you have the bets of both worlds. Already planning our next trip.

Fantastic Villa!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Ollios is nestled in the beautiful woody hills above Kalami. It is an easy short walk through a heavenly scented path to Kalami, which is one of the nicest villages in Corfu, and where we rented out boat for the week from the White House, The Darrells former home. The Villa is lovely, with everything you need, all rooms are air conditioned, and the kitchen is very well equipped. Sofas are comfy, and the new TV is linked to the Internet with lots of channels should you decide to stay in. The swimming pool is fantastic, and unusually large for Corfu, cleaned twice a week. The beds are comfortable, and always plenty of hot water for showers. The owner is extremely helpful, with good comms and great info. Great location and great value for money.. Will be definitely visiting Ollios again.

Stunning Villa

  • 4 of 5

We are just back from a 2 week holiday and the villa does not disappoint as it is as stunning as the photos. great location in kalami with breathtaking views. inside the villa also doesn't disappoint with its modern kitchen and great family room. A lovely family home. The bedrooms are all good sizes and all come with air conditioning. There is a path down to the village but when we came to it, it was all overgrown and quite steep, it was a slight disappointment but there is a hotel just down the road where we could use their lift which took us right to the beach front. The tavernas in the area are all good. Down the road is Dimitris which is in a great location with nice views. the outside facilities are great with 6 sunbeds all with cushions and 5 umbrellas and the most fabulous pool.The villa is very well equipped and presented beautifully. The only downside for us was the amount of wasps and Mosquitos but that is no reflection on the villa.
