About this listing
Villa Valentina - a spacious country house, with views over beautiful natural surroundings, offers a pleasant Mediterranean-style retreat on the green island of Corfu.
Built on top of a hill, away from the noise of traffic, Villa Valentina is surrounded only by olive and cypress trees.
The beautiful garden with lemon, orange, olive, magnolia and jacaranda trees and the surrounding lawns call out for a barefoot stroll.
Inside, the Villa Valentina is spacious (sleeps 6), bright and cheerful. The floors are made of stone, tiles and wood.
The House is in a very good condition and is maintained by us with great care.
Our guests stay in the main house, which is on three different levels, with private balconies and terrace, and direct access to the garden.
The main house is quite separate from the owners' apartment.
Interaction with Guests
Like the Greeks, we nurture a respectful relationship to our guests according to the motto: "live and let live".
Our guests can feel comfortable and know that they can come to us at any time with questions or requests.
My partner, Anikó, and I are always available in person, or by mobile phone.
Behind the house, the olive grove thins out to reveal a beautiful view to the East, looking over Gouvia Bay, Corfu town, and the strait between Corfu and Albania.
In the village of Kato Korakiana there are cafés, small supermarkets and taverns.
Gouvia Marina, Old Corfu Town, the hospital, and the airport are all within easy reach by car, moped, or by bus (from the village).
Dassia and Barbati beaches on the East coast are very close, and the West coast is only half an hour's drive away.
Rental cars, motorcycles, mopeds and scooters can be hired everywhere at reasonable prices.
There is ample private parking by the house.
The public bus network is well developed and reliable.
The transfer from the airport to Villa Valentina, or to our meeting place in the BLUE BAR at Gouvia Marina, takes about twenty minutes by taxi and costs around € 25.00.
Other Things to Note
Greece is blessed with a rich flora and fauna. The sea is very clean. The fresh fruits and vegetables are cheap, and locally grown food and drink is offered for a good price in the taverns.
Each month has its special charms. April and May are mild and colourful. The summer is dry and hot.
September has late-summer warmth, and even October is suitable for bathing and sailing.
We look forward to welcoming our guests with openness, a zest for life, and a love of nature.
Tom and Anikó.
