Christos had made us feel welcome before we had even left the UK. He answered all the questions I had incredibly quickly and was marvellously helpful.
When we arrived, himself and Anthony greeted us with a bottle of wine! They were so incredibly welcoming and again answered all questions we had. They said we could call them whenever we wanted if we had any problems (of which we didn't!).
Glyfada is absolutely wonderful. The beach is fantastic. We went off season so many things were closed but that was OK because we hired a car (I would definitely recommend this as the buses aren't that good and taxis are expensive). In the summer, though, there are plenty of amenities on the doorstep.
The apartment itself was perfect. Incredible view of the sea and very comfortable. We had a fantastic time.
We arrived in the evening, got the key without any problems and stayed for three nights.The first day we had realy bad weather, but the apartement was so cosy and the beds so comfortable to read a book or watch tv. It was also a wonderful place to enjoy great days at the beach. Christos & Fanny where great hosts, very nice and friendly and offert us a nice bottle of great redwine. The view out of the ocean is spectacular. I would definitely recommend staying here if you're looking for a plesant stay at the corfu coast.
We arrived late in the evening and Christos and Fani, welcomed us at reception. Prior to our arrival, they responded quickly to our questions and were very friendly. As they were in person, providing us with complimentary bottles of water. Later on in the week Fani, dropped some slices of delicious homemade cake off for us.
The apartment is lovely, with the added surprise of it being split over 2 floors. The bathroom, bedroom and another balcony were located downstairs. Views from both balconies are amazing and it takes just 5 minutes to walk down to the beach. We were lucky enough to spot Dolphins against the backdrop of a stunning sunset.
We stayed towards the tail end of the season, so Glyfada beach was fairly quiet which we enjoyed. However, it did mean that the beach side tavernas closed around sunset. There is another restaurant located at the end of the bay which stayed open a little later - 9pm. They do serve very fresh and tasty grilled fish.
There are no cash machines in Glyfada, so do bear this in mind. The nearest cash machines are in Corfu town - which is well worth a visit. You can catch a bus from the top of the road, a single trip is €2.20 and takes around 40 minutes.
Two mini markets situated close to the beach, do stock some food basics but no fresh meat, fish.
We really enjoyed our time in Corfu and our stay in the apartment.

Christos and Fani were great hosts - they met us when we arrived, gave us some lovely fruit and wine and, most importantly, had an amazing flat for us to stay in. It has two amazing balconies overlooking Glyfada beach, a great little kitchen, and is only a five-minute walk down to the beach, which has amazing clear blue water, nice sand, a few restaurants and snack bars, and a great little kiosk with various water-sports and activities (we loved the kayaks!).
The area is a bit cut off -- you have to go up a big hill to get to any other towns. We took the Corfu-bound bus up the hill and then walked a nice couple of km to the town of Pelekas and its great view (and great "Sunset" restaurant). We also took the great motorboat "cruise" to the slightly larger town of Paleokasistra and its monastery (and which also has an ATM, unlike Glyfada).
We ended up cooking more than eating out -- the little shop has no fresh fish or meat but a decent selection of fruit and veg, along with wine, pasta, olives and other staples.
It's amazing. We'd definitely come back.
Christos was absolutely as described and even better! Glyfada beach is most certainly one of the most beautiful on all the island and the sunsets from Christos' balcony are truly memorable. She was a fantastic host, bringing us clean towels every two days and keeping the apartment spotless. We were also welcomed by wine and cookies one of the days and a jar of Corfu honey as we departed. She was very prompt with any questions we had and did everything she could to help us. The apartment has two balconies and the top one is where we spent most of our time eating, talking, and looking at the beautiful beach. Parking was very easy if you enter from the top gate, food was easily accessible, I suggest one buys from the grocery store at the rotary towards Corfu town as it is much cheaper than the one at Glyfada. There is also a butcher 100 meters from that super market. One thing I would like to mention is that the Wifi was fairly weak for us going in and out constantly so be prepared to be offline at times. Also the location is fabulous since you are in the middle of the island so driving to all parts is very doable. About 1 hour 15min to the north tip as well as the south tip. 25 minute drive to corfu town. If we come back to Corfu we definitely will stay with Christos again!
We had really nice holidays in Glyfada! Everything was great! Christos, Fanny and Anthony were a great help for us. When our luggage did not arrive in Corfu, they managed the contact with the local airport and transport to Menigos Resort for us. Thx a lot! If you need help or advice they are there. They also like children
We had such a great stay in this apartment in Glyfada, Corfu. It’s clean and spacious. It has a nice kitchen, it’s tastefully furnished and the balconies offer a beautiful panoramic view at the Mediterenean Sea. As one of the other reviewers said: It looks exactly like the pictures shown. Fani, the host, is a very sweet and motivated lady who knows hospitality. She often came by to clean the place and refresh the towels and sheets. We got very lucky one day to find wine and cake on the table, very generous and sweet!
The beach in Glyfada is one of the nicest at Corfu, including golden sand and clear blue water. You can rent beds for a reasonable price and relax all day, just a few steps away from the apartment. It’s part of the west side of the island and as most of the beaches there it’s less touristic compared to the east. One note: Glyfada is very popular among the youngsters during the weekend and especially on a Saturday afternoon (during our stay/high season) there can be a lot of house-sounds produced at Aloha beach club or another DJ with an extreme P.A. who suddenly pops up at the beach. Escape during those hours if you’re looking for relaxation and visit Pelekas for example on the hill closeby. Dine at Jimmy’s or the Sunset restaurant (Kaiser’s throne) combined with the mother of views.
We can recommend renting a car at the airport to explore the island, there’s so much to see and do at the green island of Corfu and it’s quite big. That combined with this amazing apartment so close to the sea made it a perfect holiday for us. We’ll be back!
