About Julia Manetas
Hi my name is Julia and I have visited Corfu for over 30 years.I enjoyed many villa holidays in Corfu. My daughter attended a local school in the village and we have had many a good evening in local tavernas. My team and I will be on the island during the summer months so you can be assured that some one is on hand should you need anything. If before you arrive you have any special requests or questions I will be more than happy to answer you. you can email me through the website. I look forward to meeting you...
Julia Manetas purchased this Villa in 2005
Why Julia Manetas chose Achilleio
Villa Pascalia is a very typical Corfiot village. It is really proud of the Achillion Palace and its lovely gardens and its rich history. We wanted to build in a quiet peaceful area, that was "the real Corfu". Not a tourist resort full of noise and chaos in the summer. However we did not want to be remote so with only a 10 min drive to Corfu town, ( or a bus ride) and just a five minute drive if we want a dip in the sea or to enjoy the beach side tavernas. The area of gastouri seemed and is perfect for our needs.
What makes this Villa unique
Over the years we have had a real mixture of guests. We have had writers and painters, and the more energetic cyclists walker and runners ! we have found that the villa has offered a great central base for those who want to explore, a very peaceful and private retreat for those who do not wish to move around and just want to recharge the batteries . The families have loved the pool and gardens and the nearby beaches, the teenagers and young have enjoyed the evenings in the cosmopolitan Corfu town, which is full of history designer shops and fabulous bars and restaurants. All have enjoyed the short walk in the evening to the taverna or enjoying there own BBQ. Corfu airport is just a 10 -15 min drive away, so the holiday begins as soon as you arrive.

Great place, amazing views, beautiful pull
I would definitely stay there again!
The village is amazing and the house has all the facilities necessary.
My only issue was that the place could have been cleaner.
Thank you for your review. I am glad you liked the house and area. Sorry you thought the cleaning could have been better . We did rush a bit so that you were able to get into the house earlier as you requested. We would love to see you again ...
Nice villa with a great pool in a quiet private location.
Whilst our visit was cut short due to family illness we very much enjoyed our few days in the villa. The pool was fantastic and we enjoyed the relaxed feel of both the villa and the location. We also enjoyed the company of the cats and hope to return soon to complete our holiday.
Wonderful holiday home
Very clean and comfortable home, with perfectly maintained pool, Conveniently located, especially if you have a car. Great advice regarding local places to eat and visit. Would definitely want to return here for a longer holiday.
Wir hatten einen wunderbaren Aufenthalt in der Villa Pascalia. Bei Ankunft war alles vorbereitet - das Haus ist gut ausgestattet. Besonders hervorzuheben sind die bequemen Betten. Wir besuchen Korfu schon seit vielen Jahren und haben dadurch schon einige Betten erlebt - diese sind mit Abstand bisher die besten gewesen. Man hat einen wunderbaren Weitblick und durch die Alleinlage ist es herrlich ruhig. Korfu-Stadt ist in wenigen Minuten mit dem Auto zu erreichen. Die Kommunikation mit der Vermieterin war sehr gut.
home from home villa in a peaceful but convenient location
Great villa that makes you feel that you're in a home rather than a sterile rental property. Well equipped and lovely pool, although a little cool in October. Location was very private with good views but not too remote and easy walking distance to the local village. Shame the road to Benitses is currently closed making it a longer drive.
Wish we had booked for a month!
Everything other reviewers say is true - Villa Pascalia is a great place to stay. The pool is awesome; large, deep, clean, with lots of space around it and plenty of loungers, chairs and shade. Bats, cats and birds drank from it and entertained us. The villa is also comfortable and incredibly well provisioned inside - good sofas, TWO fridges!, lots of DVDs, books and games and little things like pool towels, torches and household products so you didn't have to buy or bring them - there was even a kagoule and a few sun hats! The kitchen has everything - I think it was the first time we have stayed in a Greek villa where the oven worked and there was even a zester in the drawer!! The beds were extremely comfy (very unusual for me to say that about a vacation bed) and the bedrooms have lots of storage. We had every intention of doing lots of stuff on Corfu but ended up staying at the villa as it was so lovely. However, its not far to Corfu town and beaches and is easy to find, with the village on the doorstep for some basics (they have a little store and a taverna) and Benitses just down the (steep but amazingly well lit at night) road. The kids fell in love with the cats and Julia sent us a postcard when Mummy cat had her kittens - fantastic service, very touched! Overall, its a corker of a place and Julia is fabulously helpful. Book it. I am envious of you already......
