Very nice place in a quiet area and with all the necessary to have a nice stay in Corfu.
Thank you Anastasia!
Beautiful house with all the things you need for a relaxed stay. The host Anastasia is really nice, responded immediately when we had a question and provided us with useful information. The house is located relatively isolated from town, but if you have a rental car for a few days as we did it is absolutely no problem. Very close to the house you will find a supermarket, a fantastic taverna and the beach and several free swimming pools. Also very close is a bus station, but the bus runs only a couple times a day. Overall we had a lovely stay, we would for sure visit handmade house again!
We had a great time staying at the Handmade House which is simple and perfect - exactly the sort of place we had been looking for. This was our first experience with Airbnb. Anastasia made it all easy - good friendly communications, simple instructions and everything just as described.
We hired a car and mostly spent our days at the various coves around the headland at Kassiopi - swimming in the clear water and lounging in the sun on the rocks. We found two particularly good places to eat in the evening along the beach at Acharavi - a very nice simple fish restaurant called Afros and also Binelikia where we also both ate fresh fish. We also had an excellent long and leisurely lunch at a restaurant called Toula's at Agni.
The people at the supermarket across the road are friendly and helpful. The bread is fresh every morning. They open about 08:30. Also worth knowing - there is a very good bakery in Kassiopi - the baked spinach slices make for a good picnic lunch. There is a Wind shop in Acharavi where you can buy a PAYG SIM for 3G and 3G+ HSDPA Internet access. There is a good signal on the terrace in front of the house.
The little house is lovely, in a location convenient for trips around the north of Corfu.
Anastasia is always friendly and helpful
Il soggiorno presso la casa di Anastasia è stato molto rilassante. La casa anche se sicuramente non lussuosa è pulita e accogliente. Verso sera è stato piacevole dar da bere alle piante del giardino e avvicinare i gattini della zona. I rumori della strada non ci hanno disturbato e le zanzariere hanno evitato nottate difficili. Anche all'esterno le zanzare non sono state un problema (abbiamo usato alcuni zampironi). Bella la spiaggia vicina e anche i paesi limitrofi. E' consigliabile l'uso dell'auto.
Nous recommandons ce logement très mignon, fonctionnel et près d'une plage jolie et peu fréquentée (10 minutes à pieds). Le prix est correct et c'est un très bon rapport qualité/prix. Il y a deux piscines accessibles gratuites à 5 minutes, une taverne très bonne et à des prix corrects à 200 mètres et un supermarché à 50 mètres, les responsables sont très sympathiques et vous donneront des conseils.
Vous avez un arrêt de bus en face de la maison qui vous permettra de faire des excursions sur l'île à moindre frais, de bons bus (Green Bus) mais pas assez nombreux.
Malheureusement Anastasie travaillait à Athènes et nous ne l'avons pas vu mais elle a toujours répondu à nos messages par mail et très rapidement et très gentiment.
Pour conclure, nous recommandons chaudement ce logement !
My husband and our two sons had such a nice stay at the Anastasia's house. The house was perfect for us . . . simple, yet with everything we needed for a six week stay. Even though we did not meet Ani in person, she was quick to respond to emails and very helpful. In terms of the surroundings, the house is just a 10 minute walk to the less crowded end of Almyros beach and is just yards away from Tony's grocery store and Mythos Taverna where we had some wonderful meals. We also enjoyed the internet access and pool at Helena Village just a short walk toward the beach. Thanks again Ani for letting us stay!
The yellow house is amazing, and the garden surrounding it is a paradise. The house has the basic stuff you need, and the area is great as well. We were there in low season, which is a very special experience since it's so quiet. We had the beach for ourselves, literally.
I can only agree with all of the above mentioned credits for Handmade House.
For us, it was the perfect base for exploring this beautiful Greek island by car. The house was neat, clean and with all necessities.
The communication with Anastasia, by mail or text, was swift and a breeze worthy for a good and caring hostess :)
Thank U for being part of making this trip one full of good memories.
Best wishes - Kim and Anita, Denmark
Corfu ist a wonderful island, the north is quite amazing, so green and the mountains around make a fabulous landscape for your holidays.
Anastasia's House is small but ok, perfect for 3 people. The street is in front, not so good for the noise (but late september at night was ok) but good for the green buses (who stops in front of the house!).
- Almiros is not the prettiest one, but still really nice and the albanian mountains on the right are really wonderful, a really good spot for windsurfers.
- Kassiopi ist a pretty harbor where you can find small bays with clear waters, perfect to dive.
- Sidari : pretty touristic but also nice to spend a day.
- not far you have to go to ZEPHIROS (near to the beach) and MYHTOS Taverna (20 meter from the house : a real greek evening guaranteed with extra nice hosts Yanis and Julia !!!).
- In Almiros the 2 Slouvaki Tavernas (at the opposite side of the city) are good and not so touristic.
