Overview

About the property

Villa Rossi in Gastouri, Nr Benitses, Corfu, Greek Islands - Fabulous Hillside Retreat, Less than 5 mins stroll to the Taverna's of Gastouri Village

Just a 2 minute walk through the quaint sleepy village to the high Street where there are tavernas, a couple of bars and a mini-market. Only a 5 minute drive from the beach and the picturesque resort of Benitses with its new marina and a great choice of restaurants makes Villa Rossi a perfect choice for a Greek holiday. A beautifully restored country house located in a peaceful rural area on the edge of the award winning picturesque village of Gastouri. Once the home of the owners Great Grandmother ‘Rossi’ from Scotland who married a local Corfiot, it has now been lovingly restored and furnished to a very high standard after standing derelict for many years. Through the private electric gates and along the sweeping drive you can only be impressed as you arrive. The tropical gardens are simply stunning with lawns across to the extremely large pool and sunbathing areas with high quality sun loungers with comfortable cushions, parasols and garden furniture. It comfortably sleeps six guests but with the facility of a further two. There are beautiful views of Corfu Town and the sea beyond from the enormous covered veranda and it's a wonderful dining area and cool, relaxing lounge area during the very hot months. We have repeat guests each year and our reviews speak for themselves. We are sure you will love it!!

Lovely property, fabulous holiday

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Villa! Starting the day on the veranda, with its views of the hills and the coast was perfect. The pool and gardens were fabulous and our boys were happy to spend endless hours swimming or playing cards by the poolside.

Being able to go out of the garden gate and be in one of the village tavernas in just a few minutes was great and we made the most of the home-grown vegetables and home-made taramasalata on offer. When we didn't eat in the village, it was less than 10 mins to drive to Benitses.

The villa is a great base to see all the island and we enjoyed lots of day trips out and loved wandering the streets in the old part of Corfu Town.

The villa is a traditional family home with plenty of space and good facilities - and our experience of booking through Jane and Chris is probably the most friendly and efficient service we've ever had. We've all struggled to get used to UK temperatures on our return home and definitely have half a mind still in Villa Rossi and Corfu!

Great.

  • 4 of 5

A lot of space inside and outside. Very well maintained house. A very steep road to the gate of the house. Our car didn't make it to reach the house with four (two elderly children) people inside the car. Three of us had to walk the last 50 meters!

Further on around the swimming pool (although it is really nice) a lot of wasps like the the same spot.

The airco in the house works perfect. The beds are good. The veranda is a good place to avoid the hot Greek sun!

I can recommend this house.

Would recommend

  • 4 of 5

The villa lived up to its listing and the accommodation was comfortable, the veranda was perfect for breakfast and relaxing throughout the day, as it offered a cool place to sit with lovely views. The villa staff offered an easy booking facility and were on hand for any help or issues during our stay. The pool and gardens were ideal and very welcome on hot days, although not a problem for us, the pool did attract a continual amount of wasps who seemed to use the edges of the pool to cool down.

We travelled the island extensively and found the local population to be most welcoming and friendly.

We dined at both local restaurants in Gastouri and the food was very good. Would definitely recommend Mezza Volta in Benitses (the first restaurant on the way in to Benitses from Gastouri) and meet Johnny Love who is proud of his multi coloured shoes, the food was very good.

You will need a car.

Overall would recommend Villa Rossi as an ideal tranquil location to enjoy Corfu.

Beautiful Villa

  • 4 of 5

Very well maintained. Lovely pool. Really need a car not really within walking distance to amenities. There were no condiments supplied so we needed to shop for everything ie salt, pepper etc. It is in the country so be prepared for roosters, owls and stray cats. Would be ideal for a family vacation.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for taking the time to post a review. We always recommend a car staying at Villa Rossi. It's only a one minute walk through the small gate down the footpath to the high street where there are a few taverna's and a small convenience store selling the absolute basics but the large supermarket which you would need is around a 1.5 - 2km drive. Glad though that on the whole you enjoyed your stay and hope you enjoy the rest of your trip. Have a safe trip back to Canada. Best wishes Jane & The Team.

Beautiful situation, lovely villa.

  • 4 of 5

We had a very enjoyable time in Corfu and the villa was very good. The only criticism is that the villa was cold when we arrived and at night, and the central heating was not available. Friendly and helpful house keeper and gardener who reconnected the water supply when it went off. thank you

Beautiful Villa in stunning location

  • 5 of 5

Four of us enjoyed a wonderful week at Villa Rossi. The villa was large, well equipped and clean and tidy for us on arrival. The owners were easily contactable and made sure we had all the information we needed for a smooth arrival. The outdoor space is lovely and relaxing and the upstairs terrace a great late afternoon suntrap. The area is very quiet (a car is really needed) but we found a wonderful Taverna (Lefteris) just a two minute walk away (just before the Palace) with wonderful food and a very welcoming owner - we tried some of the other places past the Palace which had great views but the food was poor! Overall we loved our stay at the Villa and would book again!
