Prestige Villas of Corfu - Villa, Large Pool & Gardens 2 mins walk from Tavernas



Updated: 05-Dec-2016
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!!

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!

well equipped, spacious, great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week. 2 minutes to walk to a couple of local Tavernas, and close to the Palace. The villas was well equipped, both inside and out, and very private. The whole booking process was very easy indeed, with Jane and the team quick to answer any questions. Highly recommended !!!! Thanks again !!!

Great Greek Wedding

  • 5 of 5

Villa Rossi did not disappoint We were a large mixed party that came and went through the 17 days we stayed in the villa. The property quickly became home for us. The area is perfect, walking distance to the number one tourist attraction on Corfu, The Achileon Palace. Great local restaurants within walking distance and a well equipped kitchen and outdoor grill that we put to good use. The villa is large and comfortable We will definitely stay there on our next visit to Corfu.

If I had one thing that I could change it would be to add one more ac unit in the upstairs living /dining area. But with some help from the bedroom units it was kept comfortable as we solved puzzle after puzzle late into the night.

I can't say too much for Jane. She was easy to talk with and added much to our comfort while being there

Great pool, beautiful view of old town and the airport from the veranda.

All in all a great place. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!!

Such a lovely house set in beautiful surroundings.

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at the villa and on wonderful Corfu. The description of the property didn't really do it justice. Jane from Prestige Villas couldn't have been more helpful. The lady who came to change the bedding mid holiday was so lovely, and didn't put us out in any way. The pool guy, and the gardener were really nice. The gardener was especially helpful, inquiring, if it was ok to cut the grass. He also helped my daughter who had problems with her hire car.

I would definitely recommend the villa to family and friends. The only small things we would suggest, would be to reposition the TV, to make it easier for everyone to watch, and perhaps have two large sofas, rather than one large and one smaller. It was a bit of a squeeze when all six of us wanted to watch TV.

We had lovely meals out especially at Klimitaria in Benitses. In fact most places we ate, the food was really good. The only disappointment was a meal at Etrusco, which is supposed to be the best restaurant on the island. We went there on the last evening of our holiday to celebrate two birthdays. Despite warning them well in advance that our daughter has Coeliac disease, and that two of our party didn't eat meat, they were repeatedly given food with things in that they couldn't eat.

We would definitely recommend a visit to the Achillion Palace,which is within walking distance. Corfu town is lovely to visit and has lots to explore. Also the monastery at Paleocastrictos is lovely, but can be very busy with tourists We would definitely recommend a visit to Panto Krator for absolutely amazing views.

Overall we had such a wonderful holiday. Everywhere we went people were so friendly and helpful. Perhaps that's why we all love Corfu so much!

Beautiful,clean,spacious,great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday at Villa Rossi. Booking with Jane waseasy and informative. We hired a car through Jane's contact and pick up at the airport was excellent, they even helped us put our luggage on the roof rack of the Fiat Doblo.Instructions to the villa were accurate, don't be put off by the last bit as it's a bit hairy,but good fun. Once you see the villa all will be forgotten as it's spacious, clean, well equipped and has a fabulous terrace where we spent most of our time when we weren't by the pool or out and about. We would thoroughly recommend Villa Rossi.

Third visit to this Fantastic villa!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our third visit to Villa Rossi. This villa never fails us. Its location and facilities are excellent. Its ideal for a relaxing family holiday with lovely beaches only 15 minutes away. The owners have very much thought of everything, and the pool and garden area is beautifully maintained. Also within 20 minutes is Corfu town and also Aqua land. This year, we explored Corfu town at greater length and discovered its full of hidden charm with a cosmopolitan feel. The village of Gastorui is extremely picturesque and friendly, with Achillion palace a short 10 minute walk away. We strongly recommend a hire car but found nearly all the places we visited were no more than 20 minutes away.

To sum things up we thoroughly recommend Villa Rossi and look to return again one day.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Corfu at 10 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Gastouri at 50 Metres Nearest Restaurant : Gastouri at 50 Metres Nearest Beach : Benitses at 3 Kilometres Car: recommended


There is an immaculate shingle beach little more than five minutes drive away, and a further two mins is the picturesque beach & harbour resort of Benitses with its good choice of restaurants including Traditional Greek Taverna's, Italian Pizzeria's, Chinese & Creperie. In addition a perfect place to sit with a drink and people watch! For the sandy beaches a drive of ten-fifteen minutes will take you to Agios Gordios and Pelekas on the West Coast. Lots of other ideas in the the 'Villa Book'.


Travel from the airport takes approx 20 mins by car and is very direct. Unlike most villas, car hire (although is recommended) is not essential. We have excellent Car Hire Rates with a personal Meet & Greet Service avoiding long queues at the Car rental Desks and the Vehicle is waiting outside for your immediate departure. Ask for details. Payable direct with either cash or credit card on arrival.


Gastouri village (winner of the ‘Most Picturesque Village in Greece’ Award) is also home to the Achilleion Palace where James Bond was filmed. The village has a choice of traditional Tavernas, cafe-bars, a mini market and gift shops. Not to be missed is the local bakery where Hector still bakes his bread in the traditional Olive Wood oven! The lovely resort of Benitses with its new Marina also has a fantastic choice of restaurants, cafe-bars and shops and is within an easy 5-10 minute drive.
