The property has the wow factor on first arrival and is as the photos. We arrived late at night, there was no welcome pack not even a bottle of water. An information pack with details of buses, taxis, local taverna's is what the property desperately needs. The villa is in the middle of nowhere. The nearest shop is Lidl which is 1 mile away. The nearest decent beach is 35 euros in a taxi so I would recommend hiring a car. We searched high and low for the washing machine but could not find it. It was behind a panel under the stairs, no handle. Only 1 shower had hot water on first arrival, by day 3 a plumber had been sent and we finally had hot water throughout. The villa is for up to 10 people yet only 6 dinner plates, 6 side plates etc... There were no mugs for hot drinks - we complained so new mugs arrived the following day. We stayed 10 nights and were expecting clean towels and the bedding changed at the end of week one, this did not happen.
The outside pool area is great as is the upstairs BBQ and dining area.
The villa could be 5 star if the issues above were addressed before the next season. Also if u are reading this review because you are going soon please feed the family of adorable cats, 2 kittens and 2 female adults. Thank you

“Just returned from a lovely stay at Villa Jewel. We are a group of 7 girls in our mid-20’s and we had the best time! The villa is gorgeous, very spacious and very clean and tidy. We arrived earlier than the check-in time and they were very accommodating letting us come into the villa early. Highlights were the pool and the upstairs balcony which had a lovely view and was a great place to all sit and eat. Worth noting that it isn’t that close to anything so you do need to get the bus to the beach/restaurants/lidl (closest big supermarket) unless you are up for a long walk. The buses were very easy to navigate though! It also doesn’t have the best range of kitchen things so wouldn’t be easy to cook anything too adventurous. Saying that we didn’t think this affected our stay really and would highly recommend for a lovely holiday!”

Villa Jewel is a beautiful villa about 5k from Corfu Town and 7k from the airport. Its secluded but close enough to get to Corfu Town and Govia very easily by bus (the number 7 is every 20 minutes for 1.70€). The set out of the Villa is wonderful with 3 floors and lots of space for a family or two to spread out. We particularly liked the swimming pool and the top floor BBQ area with views over the sea. The TV downstairs is easily connected to Netflix which kept the kids happy for a few nights. A little gem is the beach 300m in front of the road with a long pontoon and relaxed cafe.
The only downside is the proximity of a supermarket which is about 1k away (Lidl) and pretty tough with bags but you can take the bus. It would have been great to have some basic essentials on arrival and maybe a folder on local activities. The mid-week clean also never happened.
Overall a fabulous villa in a lovely country within easy reach of everything

Beautiful villa, perfect for our party of 10 adults. The house itself was clean and well decorated and the pool was fantastic. The outside area was very well kept. There are cats at the property which we didn’t mind at all but others might. The oven and dishwasher could do with a scrub but this in no way affected our enjoyment of the house and I would highly recommend the place. My one criticism is that there was no welcome pack to advise on shopping, bus timetables or indeed how to turn on the hot water! We had to call Vicky a few times to get the info we needed, who was very helpful and quick to reply but the calls could have been saved if more info had been left for our arrival. Also the food supermarket is more like a mile away and one of the times we couldn’t get a taxi to get back to the villa, a bit of a complication if you are occupying all of the rooms. Small things that did not affect our enjoyment of our holiday.
Lovely villa, hard to find initially
Before arriving in Corfu I asked repeatedly for the full address so that I could get a taxi from the airport. All I got was directions and coordinates. Whilst I could see where it was on a map, it was very difficult to communicate that to the taxi driver! Once we were there it was lovely, the house is very large and the pool was amazing for the hot days. I'd recommend hiring a car though as it's not very close to shops or restaurants (about 30 minutes walk).

The villa is lovely, we stayed for a week and had a great time. My only comment would be that we had a huge struggle to get the address despite asking both the agent and the owner, all we were given was the map coordinates. The road is apparently unnamed which made getting a taxi from the airport very hard! We encountered a very grumpy taxi driver. I'd recommend hiring a car if you decide to stay here.
