We have just got back from an excellent week in Corfu staying in Villa Aurora. Given the uncertainty and complications of Covid, Charles could not have been more helpful as we organised and planned for our stay, answering our many questions very promptly. He went above and beyond what we expected - for example we had been told before booking that the pool heating would be off as we were going late in the year, but because Greek covid rules tightened up in the week before we went, Charles organised for the heating to be put on as we may have needed to be in the villa and using the pool more. This thoughtfulness and desire for people to enjoy their holiday is reflected in every aspect of the villa which is very comfortable and incredibly well equipped. Cleaners came in twice while we were there and Natushka, the house manager could not have been more helpful. Charles gave us a lot of good suggestions of what to do before we left, and there were more ideas in the villa booklet. The location of the villa was excellent - right in the heart of some of the prettiest villages on Corfu, a short walk to the beach and an excellent taverna, but secluded with wonderful views. We were glad we had a car to explore and enjoy the area, and hired a boat from a village 5 minutes away for two of the days.
We had such a great time at the villa! The location is fabulous - you can walk to Avlaki beach and it's only a short drive to San Stefano and Kassiopi. The house is really well equipped and comfortable and the pool is a fantastic size. The pool was plenty warm enough without heating for us in Sept/Oct. The whole area is simply gorgeous and the food was top notch at all the local restaurants. Charles was very helpful with info and we thoroughly recommend a stay.
We fell in love with Aurora 6 years ago, and we have been meaning to return ever since. Now in 2021, we feel the same way. Our first timer friends and family all said the same thing as we did as we walked around the property - "Wow!!" Aurora truly is a home from home - comfortable, spacious and well equipped, all with the bonus of its fabulous location. Of course, many have mentioned the wonderful views, the excellent pool, and the many tavernas within easy reach of the villa. I could add that the villa seems to be as well managed and maintained as before. The owner Charles has made some improvements since our first visit, such as protective gates at the top of the steps down to the pool and the staircase, and insect screens around the outside seating area. Charles is very approachable and fair. The coronavirus booking conditions and the reviews from previous guests affected by travel restrictions gave us confidence to book almost a year ago. The rental price for this substantial, high quality villa compares well with the prices I have seen quoted for cottages in the UK. The people of Corfu, and especially Avlaki and San Stefano were so welcoming and friendly. Come here, and you will have a comfortable, stress free and happy holiday - especially if you take the evening boat taxi to Taverna Agni at least once.
