We had an amazing stay at Villa 1870. It is such a beautiful place and what is even more special is the hospitality of the owners and staff. We felt so pampered! The two chefs at the villa are absolutely brilliant; we felt so lucky to be indulging in such amazing, fresh, authentic Corfiot food – in fact we ate most of our dinners home for this reason (chefs are included and guests pay for ingredients which are shopped for daily)! In addition our driver Akis (whose services are also included with the villa) is a knowledgable guide, concierge, driver all rolled into one. Everything was organized for us so we could just relax and we had such a great time learning from him and exploring different parts of the island (without worrying about directions, parking etc.). Owners Nancy and Dimitris have obviously put their heart and soul into this place and it shows. Everything is beautiful, the restoration of this historic villa is top notch and it was the first time in a long time that we as a family have been able to truly relax. Watching the cruise ships depart each day, listening to the cicadas and the kids having a blast in the pool after a day of activity while enjoying a drink on the terrace with a view…it doesn’t get much better than this! A truly unique experience.I did not like….leaving!
