The small complex of villas is tidy and beautifully kept by Anya and George, wonderful views of the sunset and surrounding hills. Ideal place for a quiet few days away from it all. Ermones itself is not much of a resort, just a tiny beach with a few hotels and a couple of tavernas, but if you hire a car then there is much to see on the island!
The accommodation and atmosphere at Ermones Villas is lovely and the owners are very friendly and helpful.
A perfect, peaceful, comfortable getaway
Coming back to Ermones Villas each evening was heavenly. The view, the pool, the peace and quiet and the our very comfortable cottage with balcony.
Some days we literally didn't leave the property and lay around the pools all day. I love that there are 2 pools so you can choose where you want to be. Both pools have comfortable loungers.
We loved both Friday night BBQ's and met some lovely fellow travellers while eating delicious Corfian cuisine! Highly recommended.
Anya and George were just lovely. My husband went diving with George and loved it. At one point we needed a doctor for my daughter and Anya gave us an excellent recommendation for a doctors surgery and pharmacy. Anya was always available to answer any questions, and having the honest bar right there was a bonus. Fair prices too.
We walked around Corfu a lot and never found anything as gorgeous as Villa Ermones.
From our first contact with Anya at Ermones villas, to our reluctant departure, we could not fault the whole experience. Anya was extremely helpful and informative following our booking, giving us all of the information we needed about the area, car hire etc, arranging airport transfers and even a boat trip for us. The Emerald villa was a little gem, spotlessly clean, lovely décor and bathroom with fabulous views from our terrace. The complex was very quiet and tranquil with beautiful sunsets from the pool terrace and views back into the hills. We can’t recommend the weekly BBQ highly enough; the home cooked food was superb and it’s a great way to meet the other guests and spend a relaxing evening. The Honesty Bar is a great idea, it was always well stocked with beers, wines and snacks which were all reasonably priced. One thing to note, car hire would be recommended, as the walk back to the villas is up a particularly steep hill and the mini markets within walking distance have limited stock. We had a wonderful holiday and will definitely be returning.
Photos Do It No Justice!
During July, my family and I spent our holiday at Ermones Villas, in the Emerald Villa. From the moment I booked the rental, Anya was very helpful with answering any questions I had before arrival, and suggested a great airport transfer service to get us to Ermones (Corfu Airport Transfers). Our flight arrived very early in the morning, but Anya and her husband had no issues with that, and greeted us upon arrival to help with our bags, and comfortably settle us into the apartment. They set out a nice fruit basket with wine and other snacks for us, which was nice to wake up to in the morning. Emerald Villa was more than comfortable for 3 people. It came equipped with a washing machine, towels, kitchen utensils, etc. The entire atmosphere at Ermones Villas is just magical. Photos really do this property no justice. The views are amazing. It's really a great place to relax and get away from the tourist crowds. Anya and her family's hospitality really makes it more pleasant. They prepare a bbq for the guests (for a small charge) with traditional greek foods that are so delicious. Its a nice way to meet the other families staying at the villas and spend an evening watching the sunset over Corfu. There are two pools and a nice deck w/ lounge chairs and picnic tables to relax during the day if you don't want to head to the beach. If you want to take a day trip to another island that is close to Corfu or want to get to some of the beaches that can only be reached by boat, Anya happily helps you with arranging that. If you want to spend the night in a great pizza place delivers to the villas..get the sweet nutella pizza :).
Ermones beach is very close. It takes about 25min to walk down the hill and about 35min to walk back up. It's a really nice walk. You can rent beach chairs and umbrellas for 8euro for the entire day. There are restaurants and a small market in the village as well. There is a bus stop at the end of the hill that runs during the day and is very easy to figure out (very cheap ticket). We took it to get to Corfu Town and Paleokastritsa. I highly recommend you take the time to visit both during your stay. Corfu Town is very nice to walk around, and the beach at Paleokastritsa is pristine (very touristy so has lots of excursions offered by the beach).
I have told everyone I know about Ermones Villas, because it exceeded my expectations. Anya and the entire family makes you feel like you at home. It is absolutely on my list to go back!
Perfect location and beautiful!
We stayed here for several days/nights. We definitely recommend you rent a car so that you can see different parts of the island. The hosts were very kind and friendly, with great suggestions for the area. Everything looked like the photos, and was very clean. The bed was comfortable. It was nice having a private outside deck with tables/chairs. The view was beautiful and you could see the sun setting from our deck. We didn't try the pool but it looked very refreshing and clean. Instead we visited many beaches and sites around the island. The home was in the perfect location - in the middle on the west side of Corfu - which made it quite convenient to drive to the north, south, to Corfu town, and the airport. There are a number of bakeries and grocery stores within 10 minutes driving distance. There is also a cafe at the bottom of their hill. This was our first time on Corfu and we loved it - will definitely come back.
Thank you kindly for your amiable and detailed review about your recent stay at the Ermones Emerald Villa.
Let the best memories from the summer 2015 will stay with you for a long time.
Best wishes and hope to welcome you back in future!
Beautiful views and wonder hosts!
The villa was perfect for our 5 night stay. It was peaceful and relaxing, we definitely felt we were getting away from all the hustle and bustle of London life. The location up in the hills was idyllic, with the amazing views and the light evening breeze was refreshing when sitting out on the veranda watching the sunset. Our lovely hosts, Anya and her husband George were very accommodating and helpful. They kindly picked us up from the airport, we didn't bother hiring a car because of our short stay (although highly recommended to explore the island!) The Ermones beach is a 15 min walk down (a bit of a hike back up!) with a few Tarvernas, favourite was the Nausika. We hired a boat one day from Liapades and had a fab day exploring the beautiful remote beaches west of the island. Totally recommend this place.
Thanks a lot for your genuine and nice comments. It was a great pleasure to welcome you. Wish you all the best and really hope to see you again!
Ermones Villas is situated between Ermones and Vatos village. It is nestled into the hillside of Agios Georgios Mountain with a magic view of the sea and Ropa Valley.
The village is 5 min. walk. There you can find an old Byzantine Church of Agios Nikolaos that is dated back to the 13th century.

To the north of the Vatos village you will find Ermones with its nice sandy beach (only 700 meters away from the property).
