Our host made every effort to keep in touch with us and met my husband near the house to show him where it was. He was there at the appointed time gave me a run down on all the necessary items.
We were very kindly collected from the airport and after a quick tour of the old town we were taken to the apartment. We were given lots of helpful info on the surrounding area / taxis / etc. The fridge was stocked with fresh fruit and juice, and other useful items. Although the location was lovely and quiet, the apartment is brilliantly located just minutes from the beach and behind a lovely beach restaurant/bar. Great host and lovely setting, would definitely recommend.
We were made very welcome by Petros and Barbara, parents of Spyridon. Petros met us near the house and we followed him to the parking area. He and Barbara are lovely. He responded to us quickly about a very small issue. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble.
The house was wonderful, with stunning views of the Albanian mountains across the sea from the terrace. The house had all we needed, including a welcome pack of delicious Greek coffee, milk and fruit.
We can't recommend this gem of a place enough. Even though it's in a complex of houses it is very quiet, as is the beach, which is a delightful family beach with 2 tavernas and a cool beach bar. There's a boat hire place for day trips around the east coast. Highly recommended!
Thank you Petros and Barbara we will be back next year!
Petros met us at the airport which was very kind of him. We also met his wife, Barbara, lovely lady. Petros gave us a bit of a guided ride through Corfu Town and explained where to take boat trips and which buses to catch. Helpful pointers along the way. Then he dropped us at the apartment. It was exactly as other 's have described. Light and airy with lovely views of the sea and beyond. The apartment is set within other similar looking buildings and landscaped gardens and has a good atmosphere. The apartment had everything that you would need. The shower is small and a tad awkward. Barbati has plenty of good tavernas, gift shops and a couple of supermarkets. Willing and helpful locals, nice people. Easy to rent a car. Lots of lovely places to visit.
We would thoroughly recommend a stay here. A very relaxing holiday.
We had a pleasure to stay at the Barbati Beach Art House and met with Petros Spyridon's father who manages the place. He was really helpful from the day we met and took us straight from the airport via Corfu town and other small towns straight to the house explaining bits and pieces along the way.
The pictures don't do the full justice to the house ... it is a really nice and a cosy house. The moment you walk in you get hit by the nice warm wind from the sea which you can easily see and hear from inside of the house and the terrace. You could easily spend entire day just sitting on the nicely shaded terrace having your meals and taking some time off. House is fully fitted with all the thing you'd need ... inside shower is a bit tiny but you could use the outside one ( cold water only ) but it shouldn't matter on a hot days. One of the best house services we got ... it was cleaned every 3x nights, all the towels and bed liners were changed. Coffee maker takes approx. 45min to brew the coffee for two ... well you're on holidays :) We did use the mosquito net as there were few buggers flying around ( at night only ).
The beach is literary a short walk away from the house ... less the 2 minutes away. It's a rocky one so do take the water shoes with you ( or buy a pair at the nearby shop ) as it was a bit difficult and painful to walk bear foot. Water is really clean but it was a bit cold for us in May ... we've braved it few times anyway.
If you have a chance do hire the boat from Spiros and his son ... do so ... you get one for a whole day, take the food with you and you'd have a great day out.
There's a lot of small bakeries, shops and restaurants around Barbati. Bit limited if you after fresh fruits or veg ... maybe too early in the season.
If you want to go around the island it is very easy and cheap to grab the green bus and go straight to Ipsos, Corfu town or Paleokastrica ( just change in Tsavros you'll save a lot of time ). Do go to see the Kanoni to see the Mouse Island and landing planes from the small narrow bridge.
If you need to do the laundry there is a small laundry shop where two nice ladies will sort you out and you'll pick you your clean and dry clothes in hours.
On your last day if you don't feel like spending on taxi grab the green bus to Corfu town, get to the main square then blue bus no. 15 to the airport.
We had a great time here. Definitely thinking about coming back soon.
We had an amazing stay in Barbati Art House! The house is well equiped, very clean, spacy, ideally located and with a great terrace with sea view, perfect for breakfast and coffees. Petros welcomed us very nicely and is a reactive host. We hope we'll get the opportunity to come back some day and we highly recommend this place !
Had a lovely stay at Barbati Art House. So close to the beautiful Barbati beach and lots of tavernas to choose from. Petros made us feel very welcome, giving us a tour of Corfu Town from the airport. The house was clean and spacious. Loved sitting on the terrace and admiring the view.
