Villa Erasmia offers comfort, privacy and tranquility. The spacious 2 bedroom, fully self-contained apartment in 5000 square metres of garden and olive grove is close to Corfu Town and tourist attractions, the airport, some great local tavernas, the beach and the Achillion Palace. Ideal couples' escape or group getaway with 'time Out' space. Although convenient to everything it is away from the hustle and bustle.
The tastefully decorated newly refurbished apartment has a new, modern bathroom with large shower, great water pressure and an abundance of hot water (solar and boiler).
For those who do not wish to drive, individualized daily tours can be arranged so they do not have to experience the rather haphazard Greek driving first hand! Guests rent the entire apartment and don't have to share the space with us or with anyone else.
Your hosts, Steve and Adelia Cook, would personally like to welcome you to ‘Villa Erasmia’. It is our pleasure to have you stay and we are delighted that you have selected our accommodation.
Originally from South Africa, we moved to Corfu two years ago and have made it our permanent home. We are privileged to be considered as ‘locals’, a great indicator of the true Corfiot hospitality that makes this truly beautiful island so special. Staying with ‘the locals’ is a fantastic way to discover a destination so we would be more than happy to help you make the most of your stay and provide you with some good recommendations.
We have taken a lot of care and attention in redecorating and equipping our accommodation to make it the perfect choice for you. Our apartments are comfortable and designed to make you feel ‘home away from home’. Our solar powered newly renovated bathroom ensures that you will have both good water pressure and abundance of hot water.
We look forward to welcoming you!
