The space

On the southwestern side of the island, in a virgin protected area, near the lake "Korission", of rare beauty, is located Villa "ARAXALI", within striking distance of gorgeous sandy beaches and clean blue seas.
On the ground floor, there are two (2) bedrooms, one fully equipped bathroom and an open kitchen space (living room - dining room - kitchen). Baroque furniture, showases, flower arrangements, a wood heater, and a big table dominate the floor. Through the large wooden windows and the french windows that lead to an awning covered veranda, our gaze falls on the endless green, the wild flowers, the mountain, the beautiful sunset and the garden.
A wooden staircase leads to the mezzanine floor - loft, where the visible roof beams "fall" towards the wooden floor. The floor comprises of two romantic bedrooms with windows that show on the natural landscape, one more bathroom and a small living room. On the cute living room, connected visually with the ground floor, a big window gives unbelievable views of the sea, the mountain, the virgin nature and the spectacular sunset, inviting the visitor to enjoy moments of total relaxation and pure bliss.
A huge oak dominates the greenest of gardens, creating thick shade, as well as a natural "fan". Comfortable hammocks and a cozy bamboo sitting room set invite the guests to relax in their natural surroundings. Stone-covered paths lead towards the hand-constructed wood-burning oven and barbecue with the small yard where one can cook delicious dishes and traditional recipes.
The house is perfect for those seeking something special, peaceful, away from the stress and noise of the city, but also for those who love nature, wind-surfing and kites, cycling and hiking. It is also ideal for groups of any age, and families with children, who will have fun and enjoy the challenges of nature.

No hesitation: it's a 100% thumbs up for Spiros house and kindness! Everything was just perfect: big house, nice pool, great garden, calm and cool even when the temperature was over 30 degrees. A small beach never crowdy within 10mn walk and a nice village with only few tourists very close by car. Spiros got us at the airport late at night and took great care of us all over our stay. We warmly recommend this house and host!

We had a wonderful, relaxing time at this little oasis of peace with the great garden, the pool, the big oak tree, the lemon tree and the quiet neighborhood. We were a party of 8 (6 adults, 2 kids) and enjoyed our time very much. Spiros is a very reliable and friendly host, the house is in good shape and very clean. It has a lot of small details to discover and we felt very comfortable there right away. We also enjoyed being far away from noisy tourist areas.

I've found it difficult to find the right words to describe this wonderful home. Thank you Spiros and family for being such great hosts and sharing your beautiful house. We were all so comfortable and relaxed. It is clear in the photos of Villa Araxali that the house has been thoughtfully furnished and decorated throughout and we really felt 'at home'. It was always cool inside, even on the hottest days and I just loved the many seating areas, outside and inside, upstairs and down. We were 6 and there was plenty of space and of course in the garden where we spent most of our time. The perfect size pool, a hammock in the shade, bouncy green lawn, a lemon tree and glorious flowers. We were spoilt by Spiros' father who gave us the tastiest big tomatoes, newly dug up potatoes and fresh figs from his allotment. As my son and his family live in Italy my time spent with them is extra precious and meeting them at Villa Araxali is without doubt one of my best ideas! South Corfu was a revelation to me. My sister who lived there 40 years ago did most of the research so it really was all new to me. The beauty of the beaches, a couple within walking distance, and the mountain villages inland was breath taking. The roads are very narrow in places and a bit rough but drive slowly and there's no difficulty and well worth exploring! Everyone was so friendly, had time to stop and talk or at very least smile and wave. In fact my sister and I got a little lost driving in the dark on our first night, we stopped at a taverna for directions and the owner jumped in his car and led us where we were going! We have absolutely fallen in love with the villa, the island and the lucky people who live there. I give Villa Araxali the highest recommendation. Spiros too - from kindly offering to meet us at the airport, ensuring all our needs plus were met and giving us great local knowledge.

We loved our stay at Villa Araxali with our family of adult children and a 2 year-old. The house is tastefully decorated and well equipped in a quiet area near the coast and was ideal for our family. The country lanes and olive groves were covered in flowers when we stayed in May and there are beautiful sunsets over the sea from the end of the road or upstairs windows! We hired a car, useful for shopping in Moriatika, and several bikes for our family group. We explored the local area on foot and by bike including 3 local beaches, 2 of which have restaurants. We enjoyed the pretty garden and pool, with several tables so you can eat outside in sun or shade! Thank you Spiros and family for a lovely stay in a beautiful place.

Hello everybody!
My name is Spyros and I live in the wonderful Corfu island in Greece. During summer time I stay in Corfu and I manage ``Villa Araxali`` My hobbies are reading, swimming, wind surfing, sailing and travelling. I like meeting people from around the world and I discovering different cultures. I believe that knowing other people's way of life makes us open minded and better people.
My island, Corfu, is a unique place on earth, and for sure it is worth a visit. I will be there for you to discover the secrets of the island.
I would love to have you stay over at my place and have the opportunity to meet you .
Looking forward to hearing from you.
All the best
