The rooms are located in a beautifull corfiot style building, one kilometre before the feasty village of Pelekas, in the olive-tree forest and very close to wonderfull beaches.
It is a peacefull, "swimming in nature" place -yet, very close to "fun and party" situation; The village of Pelekas is an oasis of cultural events (see (website hidden)) and, the beaches of Mirtiotissa, Glyfada, Kontogialos are full of bars, taverns and people.
Two rooms are offered separately or toghether, each one with twin beds and private bathrooms. A common living room with kitchen and a common yard are at your disposal.
Pets are allowed but, they may be restricted in the garden if another guest or visitor has a problem with them.
Notice: My two dogs are restricted in the garden. If a guest's dog is annoying them it may be restricted too.
Smoking is allowed in the balkony and yard.
Pelekas is the village that has something for everyone. Whether you are looking for sandy beaches and tavernas fringed by timeless olive groves; water-sports and nightlife; traditional food and drink; budget or top class accommodation; you will always find a warm welcome in Pelekas.
Wir haben zwei wunderbare Wochen auf Korfu verbracht, die uns die Natur und die Vielseitigkeit dieser Insel näher gebracht haben. Theodore war so nett, uns bei unserer Ankunft vom Flughafen abzuholen und uns den Weg Richtung Apartment zu zeigen. Später haben wir einige wertvolle Tipps zur Besichtigung der Insel von ihm bekommen. Freundlicher hätten wir nicht ankommen können.Wer bei Desfa ein Zimmer mietet, kriegt für ein sauberes Zimmer mit kleinem Klo und integrierter Dusche mit Zugang zu einem Balkon, lebt aber auch an einigen Stellen klar improvisiert. Zum Beispiel war eine Herdplatte kaputt und die zweite heizte nicht richtig auf, weswegen unsere Kochpläne teilweise ins Wasser fielen. Schon abenteuerlich war die Wasserleitung, die gegen zehn Uhr kein Wasser mehr transportierte, um es am nächsten morgen mit voller Druckgeschwindigkeit aus den Hähnen zu schießen. Wir haben bis heute nicht so richtig kapiert, wie die Konstruktion der Dusche gedacht war, denn das Wasser stand im Toilettenraum und floß nie richtig ab, weil der Boden und der Abfluss zu ebenerdig angelegt waren....wer sich aber auf diese Hindernisse einstellt und nichts gegen NEolicht in der Küche hat =), kann hier ein paar ruhige Tage im Westen Korfus verbringen.
Desfa’s place is perfect for people who want to really relax on their vacation. It is located 1 km before cute Pelekas village with famous Kaiser’s throne. However, you need to have a car or a scooter to be able to explore beaches in the area, even the Pelekas beach. Pelekas is perfectly located for exploring both north and south of the island as well as Corfu town which is just 30 minutes away by car. Desfa and his mother Lula are really nice and welcoming hosts. Desfa was very helpful and attentive. He drove us from and to the airport and gave us some good tips. Also, he helped us rent a quad bike in the village. Lula honored us as guests to her museum of folkloric items – her personal collection of many interesting things such as clothing and jewelry in the very house.
Our room was simple and clean with a rather small bathroom but with an access to a wonderful balcony looking at beautiful “jungly” garden. It’s quite and fresh here but to enjoy sitting at the balcony to the fullest you need to bring something to beat mosquitoes. Also, we could use a shared kitchen, fairly equipped. We highly recommend this place and we plan to go back next year.
It's located in the middle of Corfu and therefore a good basis to explore the (website hidden), if you want to be away from busy beach and close enough to a small village, you have to be at Desfa's place.
And not least....Desfa is a wonderful, helpful and nice man!!!!!!!!
Staying with Desfa made our trip very special.
It was a quaint, shared accommodation with a fully functioning kitchen, private bathrooms and a balcony for relaxation.
Desfa was kind enough to pick us up from the airport and drop us off (very early in the morning!) and we were extremely grateful of that!
The town of Pelekas was a short walk up a hill, but we would recommend calling the vehicle rental company based by the local church for a good price on a quad bike or scooter as the hills to and from local beaches are very steep.
On our first night we went to see Desfa and a band perform at a local taverna (Jimmy's - definitely go there for food!) and again on another night in the main square.
We would stay at Desfa's again in a heartbeat if we got back to Corfu in the future!

We stayed at Desfa's home for one week and really enjoyed it. The house was homely and clean.
It's located in the middle of Korfu and therefore a good basis to explore the island. You can sit and enjoy the balcony of your room, or gather in the yard where there is a table for dining etc. Desfa's mother is a very nice lady who cares for the house. She has a very beautifull folklore museum. So if you want to be away from busy beach resorts and yet close enough to a small village, you have to be at Desfa's place. The photo's are very accurate.

This place is maybe suited for people who like isolation and never ending hiking,but I do not enjoy these things.If you choose to stay at Desfa's place you MUST (I repeat - MUST) have a car.If you want to walk you have at least 30 minutes to the nearest beach (if you are young and healthy).And when you want to return from the beach (which is beautiful) it is one constant steep climb, so we had to hitchhike a few times,and that's not very pleasant. Village of Pelekas is 1 km away, but it's also uphill. Mosquito's are everywhere! Theodore and his mother are friendly,and he drove us to his apartment, and then to the airport at the end of our holiday. If you like comfort and if you want to be near urban environment this is not a place for you. But it's cheap, and for that money you couldn't ask for anything better.
I was not only picked up from the airport but also given hints and info what to do,where to go and shown around Pelekas. Theodore place is perfectly situated around olive trees, 10min away from spectacular beach. The place itself is neat, tidy and just what I was looking for! If I go back to Corfu (and I hope I will) I would definitely stay at Theodore's again. My greetings for you and your mum! Keep up running.
