This is an excellent apartment in a very convenient location with an amazing view. Angelica and Marianna were quick to respond and extremely helpful and keen to provide information and accommodate any request in no time! The apartment is in great condition a short walk from the main road, with a specious balcony, living room and bedroom overlooking mouse island. Also, the cat group (4 of them) and Noel (the house dog) were lovely! If we have the opportunity we are definitely coming back!
If you love a great view then this is by far one of the prettiest and most stunning in Corfu. I fell in love the second I walked into the bright airy living room, it's amazing.
The apartment is a short taxi journey from the airport (€13) and is perfectly placed near bus stops if you wanted to explore nearby Benitses or Corfu Town.
The apartment is set back from a busy road and is accessed by natural stone steps so wouldn't be best suited to anyone with walking difficulties. The only thing I wasn't crazy about were the dogs in the neighbouring property. I had read there were dogs around in the other reviews and didn't think they would bother me. But the dogs in the property to the left of Angelica's are quite ferocious and bark -a lot. There are also dogs in the garden below but they are much more friendly.
The apartment itself is bright and clean. There's a double bedroom, tiny kitchen, bathroom with a shower, and living area with TV and a big balcony area. There are also air conditioning units in the living room and bedroom if needed. There is free wifi which is reliable and works well.
There are shops and restaurants just a very short walk down the hill, and the walkway to the Vlacherna monastery is only 5 minutes away.. A must see.
Angelica is a great host, very friendly and stayed in regular contact with me throughout the stay.
For us this was just a very short break to enjoy the peace and relax... I can't wait to go back for longer stay in the Summer.
I visited Corfu Story this summer and spent some days enjoying Corfu , the beaches and the amazing view at Corfu Story ! The house is very nice and cosy .Loved the deco. Our host helped us a lot during our stay. We loved the location of the house, close to everything, Corfu town , the beaches ,etc. .We visited Pontikonissi by boat . A bit of parking problem with the neighbors in high season. . The airport is very close but you get used to it soon. Overall , loved the experience.

We had a really lovely time at Corfu Story. The weather didn't help much so we stayed in a lot , enjoying the view with wine and the fireplace. The view is absolutely amazing , especially with the different colors of the sky.The house was lovely and clean. The garden was in a bad shape , but we didn't mind. We visited at an early stage of the season , so most of the shops were closed , but luckily Corfu Town was only 10 min. away , so we managed pretty well. Our hosts were very nice and very well organized. This place must be really beautiful at summer time. The airport is very closed but pretty soon you get used to the noise and it doesn't bother you at all. I'll definately remember that view!.
We booked this flat for a few days vacation in Corfu and we are really happy with our choice. The flat itself is beautiful , with very nice things in it (great towels) , the hosts are extra caring and friendly and the view is just impeccable. We loved it.
