Villa in Pelekas, Corfu - Set in an Olive Grove, close to the village
About Andy Brickell
We are Andy & Mags, pictured in the Pink Panther Pizzeria in Pelekas village and we live in Falkirk, Scotland. I am originally from Manchester and work as a piping designer in the oil and gas industry. My current job is in Shetland, which has many similarities to Corfu, it just lacks the fantastic summer weather! Mags is a stay at home mum at the moment, but has worked all over the UK as a document controller.
Andy Brickell purchased this Villa in 2009
Why Andy Brickell chose Parelia
We love Corfu and holidayed there a few times, visiting my cousin who lives there, before deciding to buy a property. My cousin's business is villa management, so this was a major reason in our decision to buy a property to rent out in Corfu. We know that the villa will always be presented perfectly for all our guests and that in the very rare event of any problems that they will be resolved quickly and efficiently.
What makes this Villa unique
We love the location of Pelekas Cottage. It's in a beautiful and peaceful setting within an olive grove, yet only a few minutes drive from the village and beach. Whenever we go for our holidays I'm totally relaxed within minutes of unpacking :-) Pelekas is perfectly situated for exploring the island. it's only 20 minutes drive to Corfu town and both the north and south coast beaches are within easy reach, with some fabulous scenery on the way.

Fab villa, fab location!
Thank you Andy and Mags for a great stay in your lovely villa. Very well equipped and beautifully decorated. Fab pool! We loved Pelekas, stunning sunsets, great restaurants. The waterpark is definitely worth a visit and had a great day out on a speedboat around the West coast stopping off at little coves for a swim. Would definitely recommend Corfu and Pelekas Cottage.
Great property with fantastic host
The communication from day 1 right through our stay was superb. Great property, lovely welcome pack, quiet location and easy to get everywhere on the island. Pool was wonderful and much enjoyed by our children. Easy parking. Great WiFi, TV and Sonos setup. Comfy beds and well equipped. Exactly what we were looking for.
Skops Owls & Fireflies
Thank you Andy for a wonderful holiday at your villa. We especially enjoyed the pool, which was a welcome retreat in the very hot weather. The wild life was interesting, particularly the Skops owls, fireflies, and the resident lizard!
We enjoyed exploring the island, the holiday highlight for us being the Dimitra J boat trip to the Durrell's House from Messonghi River - an absolute must! We also enjoyed the atmosphere in Corfu Town, visiting some interesting shops and cafes.
Relaxing week away
If you're after a place to stay out of the hustle & bustle of Corfu's more known resort towns, but only 5 mins drive from civilisation, then this villa will be just what you'll want. After the 20 minute drive from car hire firm (ValuePlus is highly recommended) arriving at the villa was a very pleasant experience. The villa is modern in decour and has all the amenities you need to be fully relaxed whilst on holiday. The substantial welcome pack was a nice surprise to find on arrival as well!
The villa owner (Andy) was very easy to contact and his villa is one he should be very proud of.
We can also highly recommend Alexandros restaurant in Pelekas village not only for the food and service, but the sunset view if you're eating outside.
Thanks again Andy for letting us the villa and hope you continue to get the plaudits your villa deserves!
