About Rob and Jogien Janssen
We are a dutch couple, in our 40's, and have always liked to go to Greece during holidays. In the future we like to live there (semi-)permanent. Some years ago, we started looking for a house. Our choice was Corfu, because its size, its green vegetation and the fact that also in wintertime Corfu town is a happening city. Two years after we started our search and after visiting lots of properties, we saw artist ompressions of Villa Fisi. We fall in love with the plans directly and decided to buy. Now the house is finally ready, it is even nicer than we imagined it to be. It really feels like home for us.
Rob and Jogien Janssen purchased this Villa in 2012
Why Rob and Jogien Janssen chose Gouvia
We very much like the area. It is quiet but also close to Gouvia, Corfu town, etc. Also we like the Greek people, and their way of living. We wanted to have a house surrounded by Greeks and not in a Dutch or British compound. Every time we land on Corfu, it feels like coming home. We hope we can make you feel at home also.
What makes this Villa unique
Since our house is built for us to live there in the future, we used very high quality building materials and furniture. Unlike most of the properties, our house has a very modern style. The house is located in a quiet area but on walking distance (10 minutes on a flat road) to restaurants, bars, supermarket, bus stop etc. You can use our sparkling pool, as well as our bikes.

Fabulous, high quality villa close to Corfu Town and beaches
For a last minute booking this was an amazing find. The villa is every bit as good as the pictures, it has quality written all over it from the Bosch appliances to the Joseph Joseph kitchen utensils. My family have had an amazing stay here in this amazingly comfortable villa, it has been designed with care and attention to detail, there are lovely welcoming touches, tea and coffee, water in the fridge, hand soap in bathrooms and amazing beach towels for guests. The pool is immaculate and delightful as is the rest of the house, I cannot recommend this villa more highly.
wonderful holiday home, best location
We had a wonderful stay. Dont know where to start.
The location is amazing, about a 10 minute walk to Gouvia . We lived Gouvia as it is small and very traditionally Greek with a good selection of bars and restaurants including a wonderful ice cream bar . It has a big supermarket with a fabulous selection of mainly greek foods but also a few imported items like Lipton iced tea,
The house it self if beautiful. Great location, it has everything from toaster to washing machine . A great bbq and the best pool. There are games a table tennis and a trampoline for the children. The orthopaedic beds are super comfortable . The bunk bed is fabulous for the younger guests, there are two fabulous bathrooms with walk in showers in each . The kitchen/ living/dining room is much bigger than on the pictures . There are two wonderful cats around the property but they will it bother you unless you invite them first . They also do not enter the house either. My boys loved them and they where very sad to say goodbye. . The owners of the property are also very kind and helpful should you need anything.
I can not recommend this property enough . Whether it’s location or the house itself. We loved our two weeks holiday there and where very sad to home.
Stay at villa fisi
We spent a wonderful 8 days at the villa fisi, which is a beautiful villa in immaculate condition and equally, if not more, stunning than the photos. Gouvia' restaurants and the nearest supermarket were a 10/15 minute walk away which were mainly adequate for our needs during our stay. The AB supermarket has a more extensive choice, but is a car ride, or a longish walk away. We hired a car which allowed us to visit more of the island. We had a problem working the tv, but both the owners and the property manager were very responsive. Thank you for a lovely stay,
Amazing villa, perfect holiday
Villa Fisi is a hidden gem, a modern spacious villa in a gloriously peaceful setting & yet only 10 minutes flat walk from a great selection of restaurants, tavernas, bars & cafes in gouvia. No car required for this holiday (always a plus for us) - if you want to explore Corfu you may find a car useful but we were happy whiling our days away by the gorgeous pool (our 11 & 14 year old loved it), strolling down to gouvia for an evening meal or wandering to the beach for a boat trip (we did a day trip to kassioppi) - the star of the show though is the villa- spacious, clean, private, set in lush countryside (there was a villa next door but we heard not a sound) modern appliances, lovely bathrooms, comfy beds - I have not one negative. There’s even a supermarket & local bakery 5 mins walk away- great for stocking up on rose wine & fresh bread! All in all our best holiday yet, we cannot wait to return! :D
Stylish, comfortable, well equipped
Very modern design, but comfortable and well equipped. Great outside area, pool and patio, with all the furniture you could need. Quiet setting, but close to Gouvia town with a great beach, bars and restaurants.
NB if you do not like cats, it is not for you!
Great villa, relaxing stay
We very much enjoyed our stay at Villa Fisi. From the moment of booking the owners were very helpful and did everything they could to make sure our stay would be smooth and enjoyable. This is an extremely well equipped and comfortable villa with every detail carefully considered. The location is quiet and pretty but within an easy 10 minute walk to the beach and very good restaurants in Gouvia (my mother is an active 80 year old and had no problem with the walk). But easy to find a taxi home - just negotiate price before you get in! We had a couple of excellent meals at 9Muses - try the shrimp in sambuca! The pool is larger than it appears in the photos and the outdoor areas are very well set up for eating, relaxing and enjoying the surroundings. We are cat lovers and so had no problem with their company but if you feed them ( food thoughtfully provided) at the feeding station at the back of the house in the morning and evening, they really do not bother you at all. All in all a wonderful holiday and we would highly recommend the villa. We did not hire a car and found Christos's taxi company very reliable and helpful ( recommended by the owners - excellent!) They met us at the airport at midnight and were waiting with a sign ( only 25 euros). It is a 10 minute drive into lovely Corfu old town and they will then show you where they will pick you up so very smooth. Enjoy!!
Nearest beach in Gouvia, within walking distance (10 to 15 minutes).
Nearest airport approx. 10km.
Car hire not necessary for average walkers, but recommended for people having trouble walking. For average walkers, it takes 10 to 15 minutes to get to Gouvia or Kondokali.
Distance to Gouvia, Kondokali, supermarket and bus stop about 1 km. Distance to Corfu town approx. 6 km (1,50 euro by bus).
Feel free to use our bikes, trampoline or table tennis table!
