About Tom Nagel

My passion for the sea and my profession as a skipper and a yachtsman brought me to Corfu in 1998 – I fell in love with this evergreen island. Even a sailor feels now and then the need for a home and so together with my partner, Anikó, I developed our house - the Villa Valentina. We offer the main house to guests who share our love of nature, and the Mediterranean lifestyle. We are proud of what we have achieved and love to share our paradise with guests from all over the world, giving them the opportunity to spend a holiday amidst the beauty of the most northern Ionian Island –Corfu/Kerkyra. Tom & Anikó, Corfu, February 2014.

Tom Nagel purchased this villa in 2003

Why Tom Nagel chose Corfu

We built our house over several years and at the same time developed the land and the garden. Our land is surrounded by various well-kept olive groves and Villa Valentina is positioned right on the top of a hill. We have magnificent views stretching from the southeast all the way around to the north. The olive groves produce their own little microclimate and even in the hot summer we have a cool breeze blowing gently at night.

Villa Valentina is a hidden place, but also very central. Corfu old town, the airport, the hospital and the beaches of the east coast are close by - within 25 minutes’ drive. Kato Korakiana village is also nearby. It has cafes, village life, supermarkets, taverns, an olive press, and is on a bus route.

What makes this villa unique

Villa Valentina is a very well maintained house and, with our love of space, we have kept the house bright and spacious. The mix of wooden floors, stone and tiles harmonise with the different colours of the walls. The main Villa is divided into three split-levels and each level has access to the garden or to one of the three covered verandahs. A well-equipped yet simple kitchen/diner with large tables inside and outside on the terrace gives you a pleasant base in which to prepare and enjoy good local food during your holiday on the island of Corfu.


Car: necessary

Special interest holidays:

If you fancy producing to your very own organic olive oil you can book your autumn holiday at the end of October, stay in Villa Valentina, and work with us collecting olives.

After a day's work, relax and enjoy freshly-cooked Hungarian Goulash cooked in a cauldron on an open fire.

At the end of processing, we will post you your share of the olive oil produced, according to how many hours you chose to work with us. It's up to you!


We particularly recommend the beaches on the East coast. The long beach at Dassia (ideal for children) is only 10 minutes by car.

Barbati Beach, a paradise of pebbles and clean cool water, is about 20 minutes away.

A 30 minutes-drive will take you to the sandy beaches of the West coast - Paleokastritsa, Glyfada, Pelekas and Ermones.


Corfu’s Airport is ‘Kapodistrias Airport’ and we meet our guests at the Gouvia Marina.

Meeting point is the Blue Bar with a great swimming pool and good food and drinks.

Taxis are available at the airport.

Local rates for car hire, scooter, motorbikes and bicycles are reasonable.

Book your car in person at the Marina, or in advance online using SIXT, Euro car or Budget, which are all located at the airport.


Nearby Kato Korakiana is a picturesque little village with Tavernas, Bars and small Supermarkets. It is a pleasant 15 minute walk from Villa Valentina.

The house is fantastic if you like to stay in a quite place.

Rooms are spacious and well equipped.

The owner helped us as we had problems with our car.

I hope I'll come back in a next future.

Fabulous villa and hosts

  • 5 of 5

Tom and Aniko could not have been any kinder or more hospitable throughout our stay, meeting us at the airport and giving our teenagers the thrill of a ride to the villa in the back of their truck! The villa was very well equipped with beautiful towels and bed linen and they had everything we needed including washing powder, foil, toilet rolls etc. the only thing we bought from the supermarket was food! In addition the fridge was filled with water and drinks on our arrival.

The villa itself was beautiful, spacious, airy and modern but also relaxing. The beds and bedrooms are much bigger than the photos suggest as are all the rooms. It was immaculate and luxurious. Thank you so much Tom and Aniko. You have done a wonderful job with your property!
