Villa Gecko is an ideal holiday villa for anyone looking for a quiet location, with an easy way of life.

Only 2Km from the relaxed and family friendly resort of Arillas with it's Blue Flag beach, Villa Gecko provides amazing panoramic sea and island views by day time and even more spectacular sunsets (one every day).

The area provides fantastic scenery round almost every corner and is ideal for those with walking in mind with quiet roads and little used tracks to explore.

By car, there are many interesting places to visit within easy reach, including traditional villages, largely untouched by tourism, or just explore the hills and valleys within this fantastic countryside. The rugged coast of this area offers a surprising variety of smaller beaches as well as the spectacular beauty of Paleokastritsa and the simlpe beauty of nearby...

Pretty perfect holiday. Our second visit to Arillas after 30years but without the children - not much has changed. It is a lovely village if you just want to relax. I could have stayed a few months. We will try and return with the grandchildren. The villa is set up in the hills about a 30 minute walk above Arrilas...

Management response:

What a wonderful , detailed & informative review! We are so pleased that you had such a good time & by the sound of it, you made the best of your time there & found most, maybe all of the lovely aspects of Arillas & the area around. Can't believe the distance you covered on foot! Well done!

We stayed at Villa Gecko with two of our (older) children for 10 days during July 2016. There were no problems with the booking or our arrival at all. We hired a car, which is pretty essential, unless you can manage with hiring a couple of the local mopeds. The villa itself was spotless, and was cleaned with fresh bedding...

Management response:

Thank you! It is always excellent to hear that guests have enjoyed the Gecko, but also the surrounding area and activities available nearby. Well done! Thanks also for the positive comments regarding Villa Gecko! Cheers!

Apartment? It's actually a detached villa, but.... The guests enjoyed it anyway & certainly noticed some of the benefits The Gecko provides. Another "5 star" review - we are very pleased.

About the neighbourhood
Arillas (in the North-Western corner of Corfu) is a small friendly holiday resort with a superb sandy Blue Flag beach (ideal for families) and a good range of bars and family-run tavernas. The pace of life is very relaxed through the day & continues much the same at night. (For more info. visit www.arillas.com).

For a change of scenery, to the South of Arillas is the resort of Agious Georgios (St. George NORTH), while to the North is the very family friendly beach of San Stefanos, each with their own individual character and both within easy reach. The nearby village of Afionas is generally considered the most beautiful on Corfu.

Inland from the coast is 'real Greece', with many small natural villages, largely untouched by tourism, nestling within the olive groves, mountains...
