      In Gerald Durrell's Footsteps

      Neither of us had ever been to Corfu before but I had always wanted to since watching a TV program about Gerald Durrell's life. It was everything we wanted, the island is beautiful. It's green and lush with fantastic weather and food. Our villa was spotlessly clean, comfortable, fully equipped with everything we could want. We had our own pool and again this was clean and well cared for and with views to die for. We came home relaxed and refreshed - thank you.

      Fantastic views from the villa, however, it is a little remote from the village and you definitely need a car to enjoy this region. Mossies were a real problem!

    • Mrs Copp, May 2009

      Lovely villa and great holiday thanks- the villa owners were genuine and charming - not sure I liked the lady owner being referred to as a 'maid' though - seems a bit wrong somehow! PS we liked your welcome pack and bag.

    • Mr Newton, April 2008

      The holiday was a great week, with timely help from the rep when need, the only thing that let it down was the poor quality of the hire car, better was expected of a six seater than a van! ...but still a great week.

Villa Eleni is a lovely villa with wonderful views. The location was great for us as Kalami is very relaxed and pretty quiet.

Decor is dated but comfortable and in good condition. The kitchen was well equipped.

The outside space was excellent. Perfect viewing for sunrise. The sun was off the pool and balconies by 5 but it was so hot that this wasn't a problem and the beach is so close to catch the evening sun.

The main villa sleeps 4 and the studio sleeps 2, they need to be locked separately at night so bigger families need to split overnight. Our 3 teens are old enough that it wasn't an issue. There is a separate apartment on the top that's inaccessible to the rental but nobody was there so I guess the rental is detached as advertised.
The owners were very nice and came twice during the week to clean. The man also came one evening to tend the plants.

There is no shower in the studio but there is a bath with a shower attachment that has good pressure. We all used the main villa shower which was no problem.

The steep path down to Kalami is handy and only takes 10 mins but is quite tricky in parts so might not suit young children or those with even mildly restricted ability.

Beaches are only 5 mins drive away and there's a great Taverna next door!

I would recommend Villa Eleni to anyone who loves views, loves a quieter relaxed holiday and who doesn't need nightlife on the doorstep. Everything you might want to do is easily accessible by car.

Northumberland Family with 4 children
Really enjoyed our stay
in villa Eleri. The pool is beautiful and very clean and well maintained. We particularly enjoyed swimming in the evening when the pool is lit up looking down at Kalami beach. The views from the villa are spectacular and we hadn't realised we would be able to see Albania. The location of the villa is excellent and it takes 5 minutes to walk to the beach down the path that runs straight past the house. Steep though. We had amazing weather so were always outside. The villa is not designed for sitting inside and watching TV which suited us. There is no shade outside until about 11 am and then the shade gradually grows around the outside space so that the villa and pool are in full shade by 5 pm in early August. The dishwasher was fine as long as you put 2 dishwasher tablets and we made the fridge colder by freezing bottles of water and putting them in. The 3rd bedroom and 2nd bathroom are in a separate annexe which was fine as our children are older but it wouldn't have worked with small children.
If you want a beautiful pool in a villa with amazing views where you can walk to the beach, bars and restaurants (not in high heels) and you don't want to sit inside in the evening and watch tv, it's a fantastic villa.

Fleet Family (the eldest child is at school)
Villa Eleni is in a stunning location with a beautiful balcony and outside living area and pool. The Villa is furnished in the old Corfuit style which may seem old fashioned by today's tastes but it is kept spotlessly clean by the owners and has everything you need. I think there is room for improvement on the interior furnishings: the single beds are not comfortable and one new mattress in particular is very hard and drawers in the bedrooms would make a simple but big improvement. The sun loungers could also be much more comfortable. However the position and space in and around the villa is a huge bonus and much more important in the good weather. Due to its position on the mountain I would imagine the pool and terrace are in shade in the early and late season. In July the pool was in full shade before 5pm and all lower terrace in shade by 6pm.

Careful parking is required, especially if you hire a bigger (ie longer) car than the usual small one.

London Family of adults
The villa has spectacular views over the Kalami Bay and Albania across the channel. The pool was fantastic, always the perfect temperature, a great way to cool off in high 30 to 42 degree temperatures. Eleni and Spiros visited on 2 occasions to clean the villa and pool during the week. They were very friendly and ensured the villa and pool was very clean. A perfect holiday in a great location. I would be more than happy to return to the villa and Kalami in the future. To be honest I would have been happy just to sit on the veranda of the villa and enjoy the view and the ships as they moved down the channel and in and out of the bay as I did on regular occasions in the day and in the balmy, wonderful evenings. A holiday thoroughly enjoyed by the whole family and made by the villa and it's location.

Limekilns, Scotland Family (the eldest child is at school)
Everything was excellent, only comment I would have is to have a new mattress in the double bedroom it is very lumpy and therefore uncomfortable to sleep on.
We had a fantastic time and would rent Villa Eleni again, (even with a lumpy mattress)!

Matlock Couple
Great villa, great views, great restaurant right next door. Villa and grounds kept spotlessly clean by Eleni and her husband - very nice couple. It was a pleasure to meet them. Plenty to do nearby.

Mr Glenn

This villa is superbly positioned overlooking the bay, so there is always something to watch. Although it is on the main road the windows are all away from it so there is little noise or disturbance. Surprisingly the owner had parked his car one day on the space dedicated for those renting the villa - despite this all he said was hello - and we had no further contact with him. Luckily he was not there for long, but we didn't quite understand why he didn't use his own space. The villa (actually just a ground floor apartment, not really a villa) is comfortable enough, just! The beds, pillows and sheets have seen better days and my husband found that the bed troubled his back. there is a serious black mould problem in the bathroom and no flyscreen on the window. The second bedroom with ensuite is actually down about eight outdoor steps and then up another five so is not very convenient. A pity for us as we generally book accommodation with two bathrooms so that we can use one each.
The other surprise was that there was no welcome pack. Nothing, zilch, only pepper and salt. Not even a bottle of water. We rent villas several times a year and are normally supplied with at least the wherwithall to make a cup of tea or coffee on arrival. After a long journey and having made a very early start we certainly had no feeling of "welcome". Another thing is that no cleaning materials whatsoever are provided. We would have liked to have perhaps a couple of jeycloths and some flash liquid so that we could give the loo, basin and shower a daily clean. Also a couple of dishwasher tablets to get us started would have been nice. Although actually when we looked at the dishwasher it was out of salt as well. If one has to buy everything like this a villa holiday becomes uneconomic, and of course whoever comes in to clean afterwards benefits from the leftovers! As the mosquitoes in that area are a problem we would have appreciated an "anti-Mossie" machine, and a couple of tablets for it, such as we have always been provided with in other villas.
Don't get us wrong, we actually had a marvellous holiday, but perhaps it was more down to the weather, the area and Corfu.

Delabole, Cornwall Couple
This villa is absolutely beautiful and in a fantastic position above Kalami with lovely views of the bay and across the water to Albania. The veranda is a wonderful area to sit in comfortable seating with a glass of something cold or take a dip in the pool
. Thankyou Spiros and Eleni for allowing us to enjoy your lovely villa. This was our second visit in 2 years and can't wait to go back!
