We absolutely loved the holiday. Being a few metres from the sea was fabulous - especially late at night enjoying our oouzo or Metaxa either on the beach or in the lovely little garden.This was secluded & ideal for relaxing & sunbathing. We loved the constant sound of the sea. The views over to Albania are spectacular. We did the coastal walk via Avlaki to San Stefanos where we had lunch. Hard work for us 2 OAP.s but we loved it! Thalia - the owner who lives next door - was lovely & friendly - & brought us fresh figs & prickly pears a couple of times. One of our best holidays to Greece!
Wed agree with all the reviews posted about Villa Varvara. We felt very fortunate to have chosen a spot on the island that was quieter and out of the way but still within very easy access to restaurants and activities, although would recommend a hire car to get around. Villa is perfectly equipped with everything you might need and in the most sublime spot. Beach walkers would often stop and admire the villa and its position as they passed. The owner was always available if we needed any advice and the villa was thoroughly cleaned every 2-3 days in a discreet manner when we had gone out.
We have just enjoyed a wonderful, relaxing week in Varvara, just a few yards from the sea. Thalia, the owner next door, was very accommodating. She cleaned the Villa, gave us two lovely bowls of fresh figs during our stay and was very helpful with our suitcases on the last day of our holiday. We would recommend Varvara as a holiday stay for ideally a party of 4 or less. We were 5 adults and all very close, but maybe a couple with children or two couples would be ideal. A wonderful spot to sit, swim and generally unwind with a 15 minute walk up to a lovely taverna [Mythos] as well as the well stocked Supermarket for supplies.
This is the second time we have stayed in Varvara and we love it!! Simple but comfortable and the position is outstanding. The bay is quiet and the swimming is superb. There are two supermarkets within walking distance, and one will deliver if needed. Thalia, the owner next door, is a wonderful neighbour - bringing eggs, figs and tomatoes, keeping the patio washed and guarding the three dedicated sun beds on the beach. We hated having to leave at the end of the week.
We booked our self catering 2 week holiday to Corfu with Agni Travel early this year. It was the first time we had used them, but it certainly won't be the last. From the moment I booked, the information we received and the help given was exceptional. The photos of our 2 bedroom cottage on the beach looked out of this world but so often the reality doesn't match up.
Ok, so on landing at Corfu airport, we had the most amazing instructions to get us to our cottage, not only written instructions but photos of landmarks, which made the journey so very easy.
When we eventually arrived at our cottage , i just couldn't believe it. It was BETTER that the photos and the description perfect. We didn't have to contact Agni at any time during our stay, but we felt very well looked after, and always new how to contact them, if need be. I would definitely recumbent Agni Travel to my friends
Oh, My goodness. This is the most picture perfect holiday cottage...ever. Off the beaten track, looking out over a quiet, stoney beach with crystal clear waters. What more could you want? The cottage has a wonderful out side space.... an area for eating, just off the lounge ( perfect for breakfast and lunches) a shaded area with sofa and chairs and in the garden area, 4 sun-beds and a brolly.. and outdoor shower. In side is basic, but has everything you need. 2 bedrooms a double and twin... just so you know,,, the twin room has the most amazing view, the double, not so amazing. me and my hubby opted for the view. The bathroom is great, the lounge ok...not luxurious, but does the job. the radio and video player worked well... didn't bother with the TV. The kitchen is very well equipped, with everything you could possibly need for self catering. there is air-conditioning in both bedrooms, but as we were there for the 1st 2 weeks in May, the evenings were fairly cool... so didn't use it at all.Thalia, the owner was lovely and bought us 2 meals of freshly caught and cooked fish. It is about a 20 min walk to the nearest town where there are lots of Tavernas and bars. A little supermarket up the hill was good enough for us, although we did hire a car for the whole 2 weeks, which we wouldn't have wanted to do without. There are some tavernas very near by.... but we only tried one, which was lovely. This view from cottage is even better than the photos..... it took my breath away every morning and a didn't want to leave after our 2 weeks. I would 100% recommend this place, it is an oasis not often found.
An absolutely beautiful villa to stay in everything was wonderful and we will definitely be returning. Thank you for a fantastic holiday Agni Travel.
Second time at Villa Varvara we so love it tried to book for next sept but already booked up Thalia the owner lives next door and is so kind giving us eggs figs fresh fish and even cooking us two lovely meals this is a beautiful beach and the views are unbeatable. Nice walks into Kassiopi and Avlaki.Coming back next year but had to book Fishermans Cottage a little way behind Varavara.....we will miss the view
We loved the house and its position. The views from the terrace and patio were wonderful. It was a delight to have the beach and sea outside the front gate. The bay is quiet and peaceful and we had a really relaxing time. The figs and eggs from next door were much appreciated. An excellent holiday.
A great property right next to the sea. Thalia made us very welcome. Very good service from the Agni team and from Eos, would recommend without hesitation.
A superb holiday. This bay is stunning with the views to Albania weather was fantastic. As always Greek locals super friendly as was Thalia. Boat trip a must. Excellent supermarket up the road who deliver back to Varvara. Food in local tavernas beautiful. Service from Agni Travel, Eos and Agni Taverna superb from start to finish. Will certainly recommend you and will use your company again.
Absolutely amazing everything was perfect.
Excellent service from Agni Travel and Eos Travel. Taxi transfer there to meet us and driver was very pleasant and helpful and taxi came on time to pick us up for return flight. Groceries delivered as requested. Loved the villa hoping to visit again next year.
Magical, the stunning views from Vavara, the situation virtually on the beach, the friendliness of all the locals but most importantly our wonderful neighbour Italia who couldnt have been kinder. Thank you to the Agni Travel staff for all your help. We wanted to book for the last 2 weeks next June but sadly you are already fully booked.Thank you for a wonderful time.
Excellent, have booked for two weeks next year in June. Many thanks PS. We also like the fact that you support the rescued animals of Corfu.
Our holiday lived up to expectations - we had a wonderful time and as always loved staying at Varvara, hardly wanting to leave it and Kocavenia beach. Natalia was a gracious and generous host who kept the place spotless with her frequent cleaning. Even the two dramatic thunder storms on consecutive evenings together with the one over Albania which didnt affect us other than to provide an amazing fireworks extravaganza were all part and parcel of a lovely holiday. We really want this place kept secret. We will be back.
An absolutely unbelievably lovely location. The beautiful calm ocean is literally a few feet from your doorstep. Mythos taverna is five minutes walk away and is one of the best places to eat in the whole area. (They also have free WiFi there) Nikos supermarket is also very close and they offer free friendly delivery on orders above 40 Euros. The beach was not only beautiful with great snorkeling but is very quiet too. The property itself is not luxurious but is very clean and has everything you need. One thing worth mentioning is that the TV is a modern full hd model which has an HDMI slot and usb film player so you can bring blu ray players play station etc for stuff to do at night. The property is cute and well supplied the atmosphere is wonderful and the location has to be seen to believed. Probably the best holiday Ive ever had.
Great, may well use the property again. Have already recommended it to a couple of friends.Will certainly use the services of Agni Travel in the future. Many thanks.
The property was lovely and the owner very kind. The property was well maintained and cleaned very thoroughly. Beach towels were also provided and changed mid week.The position of the property was wonderful beautiful views peaceful. The taverna which you stated was behind us was quite a little distance hence there was no noise from it at all and we were made very welcome on the evening we went along to the entertainment.Kassiopi and Alvaki were very close by and worth a visit as the tavernas are good. The local supermarket owner was very helpful and made deliveries. The owner was a lovely lady - very generous, gave us eggs from her chickens and cooked us fish which her husband had just caught with homemade chips and salad - delicious. We had a lovely holiday and would recommend the property.
Thank you for a most relaxing and pleasureable holiday. The property was everything and more and we all really enjoyed our stay at Varvara. Thank you also to the lovely owner and housekeeper who took such good care of us while we were there. It was reassuring to know she was available should we need anything which we didnt. Thanks again and we look forward to Greece again next time.
We loved the property but especially the location as Im sure everyone says. Eating breakfast each morning was sn absolute joy with the view we enjoyed. The cottage had eveything in you could wish for..the kitchen was especially well equiped. Perhaps it would be a good idea to purchase an extra scart lead as it took a moment to work out that you have to unplug the one in the back of the satellite and plug it into the dvd player to watch a dvd. Some people may not realise and just give up. All in all it was wonderful and so quiet with just the noise of the ocean.
Everything was perfect and the photos videos and descriptions matched the property.
Really impressed by the service from the lady next door who was looking after our property. She brought us fresh eggs from her chickens and hot water for tea and coffee when there was no electricity one morning. She seemed to come in and clean most mornings and there was always plenty of towels. Really nice friendly person she came to say hello as soon as we arrived and came out to say goodbye when we left.Really nice holiday.
We had a wonderful holiday. The weather was glorious, the wild flowers stunning and the sea though initially bracing was deliciously refreshing. The owner of Varvara was very welcoming and hugely generous with gifts of her chickens eggs, wine and fish caught that morning by her husband. We will definitely be returning next year to see the beauty of Corfu in May.
Very restful, lovely walks and swimming.
My husband and I have been holidaying in Corfu for many years and we always have a wonderful time. My family have now found Corfu a perfect holiday for my grandchildren so they certainly will be going back for future holidays.
The villa is in a lovely peaceful location. It is our second time there and we would use it again in the future.
A clean pleasant and well equipped villa right on the beach. The beach was rather stony but nothing a pair of rubber shoes couldnt overcome. The owner who lived next door was a pleasant lady who whilst not being intrusive always stopped for a chat when passing and even turned up with a plate of fresh fish caught that morning by her husband. Very nice grilled on the BBQ. The local shop run by a very friendly chap by the name of Nikos supplied all our day to day needs including ready made kebabs sausages and home made dips. Many nice restaurants in nearby Kassiopi our favourite being Janiss up near the main road. A very pleasant holiday despite the last 2 days being overcast and the evenings a bit chilly for some but will definitely return. The fact that it is already booked for the whole of October next year bears testament to its popularity.
Had a great time loved being so near the sea and Natalia next door was excellent her cleaning was of a high standard and she and her husband were very helpful would very much like to return in the future. Thank you
This holiday was a special present from our daughter. All the arrangements and payments were made by her. We can only say the whole experience was for us a joy no clitches no hiccups. The Corfiots were amazingly friendly and helpful and that kindness will make this particular holiday a treasured memory.
The property was exactly as described. It was very quiet and lovely just the holiday we were looking for.
Really enjoyed it.
We wanted a holiday where we could use a local travel company so that as much of our money could go back into the local economy as possible. We stumbled across Agni Travel via the Owners Direct website and the service you offered was great - car and boat hire both from small local suppliers at competitive rates. We wouldn't have even known to hire a boat if you hadnt mentioned it. The Agni Travel directions were excellent although traversing Corfu Town was still hair-raising! The north-east coast and Varvara were both breathtaking with our own Ionian swimming pool (the sea). With the entire bay to ourselves we snorkeled and saw many small fish and an octopus in the crystal clear water. The boat exceeded our expectations as well and the places it gave us access to were beautiful. We were blessed with the weather for this time of year and it made for an unforgettable family holiday. Thanks very much to you and all the friendly local people we met during our weeks stay.
