Our stay in Corfu was perfect. We had our family with us and invited friends. Everyone enjoyed it.

  • 5 of 5

Our villa really made the whole experience delightful. The Grimmas family were so welcoming and helpful. The villa is close to old town Corfu and also the airport so no long drives. Just a spectacular home. Beautifully furnished and lovely grounds with an inviting pool and outdoor dining. Would highly recommend it to anyone planning a trip to Corfu.

Great villa! Great owners!

  • 5 of 5

What can I say? This is a beautiful villa, away from the madding crowd, but very accessible to all parts of the island. The villa is splendidly appointed and the setting is lovely. The house is traditional and you feel like you are in amongst a real Greek neighbourhood. The pool area is fantastic and the views from the terrace by the pool are really top notch. The owners are a delightful Corfiot family who cannot do enough to make your stay a comfortable one. Alexis is attentive and responds promptly to any queries. His mother, father and brother were also extremely nice and great hosts.

You do need a car at this villa as taxis are not easy to book and the bus service is not brilliant! But that does not spoil in any way what was a superb stay - one that will live long in the memory.

Thank you Grimmas family!

Specious and well equipped in excellent condition

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely family holiday in this beautiful house. The owners were extremely helpful and attentive. Very stylish new bathrooms, gorgeous white fluffy towels and these details made all the difference to the comfort and luxurious style of the property. We had a very discreet maid who came every other day which was a real treat. Excellent location for airport and town we would highly recommend this property to others and would hope to return.

what a lovely time we all had at the villa,Alexis was always at hand if we needed anything which was much appreciated.

The villa was well equiped and had everything we needed for our stay,stunning views from pool area where we spent most of our timeand easy access to and from corfu town.we used the bus which was cheap and only takes 5 to 10 minites,found taxis ridiculously expensive,

again many thanks to alexis and his parents for helping to make our stay so wonderful..10 out of 10.

peter and party.

Stunning property

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous detached House and Fabulous owners. If you want something different to the usual 'beach' holiday in Corfu, then this is the one. Close, but not too close, to Corfu Town and all the historic landmarks, this property offers the unusual mix of escape and accessibility whilst being removed from the madding crowd of tourists. The owners provided us a very warm welcome indeed and are very conscientious about the enjoyment of their guests. Whilst the property offers 5 star comfort and space you'll be sure to want to spend most of your time around the private and secluded pool terrace. Views are absolutely stunning with both the pool and the terrace itself being large enough to accommodate a large sized family/group if required. We stayed for 10 days, just the two of us and it was amazing, hope to return soon.
