Keith & I live in the beautiful Scottish Borders, just 40 minutes from our home City of Edinburgh & where our children & grandchildren live. We are fortunate also to have a home which we rent out on the equally beautiful island of Corfu.
We take tremendous pride in our villa, in summer we live locally in order to look after our guests needs, such as key handovers, cleaning, maintenance, recommending places to visit, dine and anything else which crops up.
After deciding on Corfu for our second home we 'found' Arillas & instantly fell in love with our plot of land, we knew immediately it was perfect for us & our family.
We pride ourselves in that building a rental villa we were 'pioneers' in our area of Corfu. Our instincts proved correct & verified by our happy returning guests
Year property purchased: 2004
Why this location?
Corfu for us is the ideal location to own a holiday home in that it allows us to drive there as well as using one of the many flights available from the UK. It's a good drive from the UK, enjoyable and fairly straightforward. If you like the idea of driving to Corfu please feel free to ask for details. Corfu has everything we love about Greece. Friendly locals, great food, local wine, verdant hills & valleys, hidden beaches, turquoise seas, ancient villages & the sense of adventure when discovering somewhere new, even after too numerous visits to count! As a family, we love Arillas on the North West of Corfu for it's rugged beauty, the stunning sunsets and scenery, it's unpretentiousness, the welcoming locals who live there and give it soul ~ Arillas is not just a holiday resort
What are the unique benefits of the property?
Villa Linakis is close enough to the facilities of Arillas & its Blue Flag beach to be walkable, yet far enough to enjoy peace, privacy & tranquility of it's unique location. It's the simple pleasures that matter: • Ten minute wall to the local bakers & mini-market. Fresh bread and croissants-what a great start to the day! • Take a table at a seafront restaurant, sit back, relax & appreciate the elemental beauty of a unique & ever-changing seascape. • At the villa make a ritual of enjoying a 'sundowner' whilst watching the birds swoop to get their last feed of the day & the bats their first. We set out to create a property with a nod to it's Greek origins, thus we take it is a huge compliment & endorsement to hear our guests say Villa Linakis has "a true sense of a place".
Left on Jun 09, 2009 for a stay in May 2009
The villa is absolutely superb - the photographs do not do it justice. It is spacious very comfortable and very well equipped. It is by far the best place we have ever stayed.
The location is great up a small country road not isolated but far enough away from the neighbours that playing music whilst out by the would not bother anyone.
We had such a wonderful holiday that two days after …
