Large three bedroom villa suitable for 4-6 or 6-8 guests Lazy Acre is a beautiful private villa set in an acre-wide olive grove on the edge of Agios Ioannis, it was our family home until we returned back to the UK 9 years ago.
The villa is surrounded by flowers and fruit trees, it's very private and isn't overlooked at all. The whole point of staying in a place like Lazy Acre is that you shouldn't feel compelled to do anything at all but if you do fancy a change of scenery the villa's central location makes it easy to get out and about to explore the stunning coastline and the pretty villages where life doesn't appear to change.
Kids will love the pool and the nearby water park ''Aqualand'' that's just minutes away by car. Teenagers will probably appreciate the lively atmosphere in Gouvia less than 5 kms away. The nearest place to eat is Taverna Paradiso just a few minutes on foot, we love it here the food is mainly grilled meats fresh salads and various dips but they also do a number of pasta dishes.
Lazy Acre is spacious, homely and well laid out over 2 floors. You enter the villa into the large open plan kitchen/diner. The kitchen is well equipped and although barely needed there is a fire place for the cooler evenings in low season. Also on this level are 2 of the 3 bedrooms 1 with 2 single beds and the other with a king size bed, both with balconies and a shared bathroom. From the open plan kitchen/diner there is a lovely pool-facing balcony which is perfect for relaxing any time day or evening, when we holiday at the villa we love to sit and have drinks here especially early evening. The spiral staircase leads up to the top floor, here is a spacious living room with ample seating and a large sofa bed suitable for two adults, UK TV is also available. There is a separate bedroom on this floor with a double bed and ensuite shower and toilet.
Cots and a high chair available.
Depending on what time you arrive you may be welcomed by the lovely Aresti - her and her husband Alkis maintain the villa, the gardens and the pool area. They live in a completely self contained apartment beneath the villa. Their presence is discrete however should you need any help with anything or any suggestions of places and things to do Aresti speaks English and will be happy to help, but is never intrusive.
Getting to the villa - Car hire is strongly recommended.
The airport is only 20 minutes south of the property, which means that you will arrive at the Villa quickly, unstressed and very probably without requiring the assistance of a map (we do send driving instructions nearer the time). Anyone wishing to enjoy the bars and clubs of Gouvia can safely get back to the villa by taxi in under 10 minutes.In the villa there is an information book about all the nearest beaches and local amenities.
There is a generous and varied selection of restaurants in the area to suit every occasion. No need either to leave your golf clubs at home as the Golf Course is also 10 minutes away and especially delightful out of high season.
The nearest village is Agios Ioannis. Here you will find a charming square with an outdoor taverna and is a popular place, frequented by locals and "in the know visitors". Even Corfu Town is only a 15 - 20 minute drive away. * Car hire is highly recommended in order to get the most out of your holiday. If you wish, we can gladly help you with these arrangements.

Lovely secluded villa, beautiful decor and really clean. You will need a car to get out to get groceries and/or go to restaurants. There is one cafe in walking distance and it is very good. We explored the north east of the island and found some nice beaches and places to eat. Recommended the Blue Lagoon boat trip shop around we managed to get it for €30 each with the bus picking us up at the end of the road.

Che dire?! Il soggiorno ha superato le aspettative, Julie é davvero un perfetto host, disponibile e attenta ad ogni esigenza. La casa é favolosa e davvero un angolo di relax, ben attrezzata, grande e pulita. Il terrazzo e la piscina sono davvero i punti forti di questa bellissima villa. La posizione é ottima per visitare ogni punto dell'isola e a 20 minuti di macchina dalla movida di Ipsos e Corfù Town. Sceglierei di nuovo questa casa senza dubbio e la consiglierei a chiunque decida di soggiornare nell'isola.

A beautiful house, great location and an incredibly helpful host. Lazy acre is a great base to explore Corfu. The setting is jaw dropping, the pool is great and it’s perfectly located to get to either side of the island. A car is helpful; however the bus stops are less than a 10 minute walk away. Julie is super helpful, offering all kinds of tips for whatever kind of holiday you like. Communication throughout was 10/10. This was our first overseas holiday with our 7 month old son, and lazy acre was perfect for a family getaway. The couple who live in the separate flat are very quiet and did not intrude at all. Highly recommended.

Это чудесная вилла,чистая,все есть,что нужно! Джулия-хозяйка помогает и отвечает очень оперативно! Наш отдых был прекрасен! Вилла находится в уединении,что очень здорово! Мы снимали машину, здесь это необходимо, хотя и магазин и ресторан тут в 5 минутах ходьбы. Всем советую! Вам очень понравится здесь! А пляж Пелекас,который недалёко от виллы -самый чудесный на острове !

Perfect place to relax and enjoy peace and quiet. The pool is the making of the place.

This is a gorgeous villa, private and spacious with a lovely pool in beautiful surrounds. Coffee on the balcony in the morning sun was a highlight. Julie is an excellent host providing local knowledge for a special stay. It is great having the lovely young Greek couple on the same property in case you need anything, but they are totally unobtrusive if you don't. We recommend wandering to the Paradiso Taverna just 5 minutes walk away for authentic local fare. A lovely place to stay, conveniently located... we would definitely love to come back.

Myself and seven friends stayed here for a week all between ages of 21-23. The contact we received before our holiday with Julie was amazing, replies within the hour telling us recommendations and helping us sort out transfers and transport throughout the week. We didn’t have a car throughout our stay but it may be useful for a young family If you are planning lots of trips. The housekeeper was absolutely amazing and answered any questions we had but wasn’t in the way and we only saw her at the beginning of our stay. We couldn’t quite believe how big the swimming pool was and it felt very peaceful and relaxed. Would highly reccomend this villa for anyone looking for a quiet escape. The restaurant Paridisos is only a short walk and is cheap and stunning food. Thanks so much for having us we are looking dor are to coming back again! Molly

We had great holidays at Lazy acre. The villa is wonderful with a swimming-pool that the children love. Julie was a nice and attentive host. Thank you very much for all. We hope we will come back...

This house is a perfect spot to explore Corfu, it is both close to everything and far away so that you can enjoy quietness at night and hear birds singing. House is big, with a lot of spaces you can enjoy, like a terrace for morning breakfast or outdoor pool. We definitely liked this house more then any other we have staid in at Corfu

Where do we start? My family and I had a fabulous stay at Lazy Acre. The villa and pool have everything you need. It's private and secluded yet still within walking distance of a great taverna, minimarket and the water park! It's also within about 10 minutes drive to the east and west coast beaches. Julie is a great host and nothing is too much trouble. You definitely won't be disappointed.
Exactly as Described

A spacious and well equipped villa with a lovely pool area. Close to the aqua park and Paradiso restaurant. Car hire is needed but a short drive to Corfu town.

Thanks for the positive review, we are delighted you had a great time in Corfu and we appreciate you staying at Lazy Acre. Glad you enjoyed the property and the location. Paradiso taverna being such a short walk, I agree is a massive bonus!
