Amazing place to stay on Corfu! – We just returned from a wonderful stay at Villa 1870 on Corfu. The location is lovely overlooking the sea and very private though only a 10 minute drive from town. The owners, Dimitri and Nancy and all their staff were so warm and friendly. It felt like you were staying with good friends. They even arranged for us to go into town for the Easter procession and the « breaking of the pots » from a private balcony. Clearly, a great deal of thought and care went into the villa to ensure the comfort and enjoyment of those who stay there. The heated pool was large and cleaned daily. Details like a washer and dryer for your use and games, an electric piano and large TV in the lounge area all made the stay more enjoyable. We decided to have their chef prepare our breakfast and dinners which were excellent. I don’t think we could have eaten better in any restaurant. His service was included so we only paid for the ingredients which were purchased fresh every day after discussing with us what we would like. We were traveling with two vegetarians and a 7 year old and he came up with menus to please us all. You had a choice of indoor or outdoor dining. Alternatively, there is a full kitchen where you could prepare your own meals. Leftovers were placed in the kitchen refrigerator so you could snack on them later in the day or for lunch. There is a chauffeur driven van to pick you up at the airport, take you to the grocery store and take you around the island. Nancy and the driver, George would help us map out an itinerary for the day including stops for ice cream which delighted our grandson. Prior to arriving, Dimitris quickly answered all our questions and even arranged a Covid test on Easter Sunday for our return to the US. Overall, we can’t think of anything that could have made our stay better.
