“Sublime. What you see is what you get and so much more.”
Reviewed 18 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Below I've provided some more details but to summarize our feedback. We were celebrating a 50th Birthday and wanted to do so in style. This Villa is posh, well equipped and spacious - each room had its own toilet and bath/shower; we had outdoor and indoor dining where all 16 of us could sit together - with 15 adults and one teenager it not easy to combine style with comfort and practicality.

Benito, who runs the place was helpful beforehand in planning for the big night with caterer (British woman called Alison - very good chef) , barman and cleanup support, as well as with logistics like making sure guests knew which room was theirs and supermarket shopping, so we arrived to a full fridge. In fact throughout our stay his team was on hand to help were needed. Benito himself went above and beyond and I am most grateful.

The Villa is also on a hill so you have spectacular views from the many balconies or pool area and you are surrounded by lush meadows.

We had been to Greece but never Corfu, so we had expectations of what the island would look like but were rather surprised as we drove to the villa just how green and lush Corfu was. The villa was an easy 15 minute drive from the airport and not hard to fine. What I first loved was that it is off the beaten track (yet still s short drive to the usual amenities) and up a delightful winding road surrounded by wild flowers of all colours (we later picked a few for boutique - no easy feat given the bees...). When we arrived at the villa Benito was waiting with a friendly smile. we were 16 with three cars, which was fine as the carport easily. take 4 and the entrance had lots of space.

the house is on 3 levels with two additional apartments on the compound, that can sleep 4-5 people if needed. the main house has 6 bedrooms - one open to the pool, 4 on the first floor - which is the same as the main entrance and the master room on the second floor - stunning rooms very comfy beds.

If we have one thing to change it would be the pillows - they were to flat ( would be nice to have more plush/ fuller and soft types) and too few each rooms had just two.

Apart from the natural beauty of the villa and its surrounding, the island is also great to explore and will keep you busy for a week of two if you stay that long. Sissy place and Corfu town are must see.

I've got to run but I can say that we will visit this place again, I could do so very year if I had my way.

Thank you Benito and team and our chef Alison.

Benito offers with Villa Gaia a place where we met friends and enjoyed perfect service. The Villa presents luxury surrounded by nature on the magnificent island Corfu. Who is looking for time in it´s own and also perfect style can forward to pure pleasure. Thanks for the time, we would definitely come back.

“Simply perfect...”
Reviewed 13 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

 

Set in an area of exceptional beauty , Villa Gaia  offers peace and tranquility  and it is a perfect accommodation for families or friends. The interior is of the highest standard with magnificent views available from every room. We  spent most of our  time relaxing on the large verandah  and sunbathing by the wonderful  swimming  pool. The owner of the villa, Mr Benito was attentive and professional . The location was great ( the perfect base to explore the beautiful local area) ,  the house was perfectly cleaned and  well equipped for any evenience. An experience to be repeated as soon as possible….
