About Nick & Jane
We both have busy lives, living and working in London and raising children. We always hoped to one day buy a property in Spain, but visited Corfu and within our two week holiday not only had we fallen in love with the island, but had fallen in love with the plot of land where the villa now stands. The villa was completed in 2008.
Why Nick & Jane chose Retzepi
It is so peaceful - not just the location, but the views across the green valley and out to sea and of the sunset (which is why we named the villa with the Greek word for sunset). For us, it's the perfect respite from our busy lives - especially as it's more luxurious than our own home! The best thing to do is read what other visitors have said.
What makes this Villa unique
Rest, relaxation (we always sleep incredibly well) and privacy and a great base to explore from. We most like reading by and dipping in and out of the pool.

What we wanted and paid for
A sublime week in a stunning villa. We had the most enjoyable and relaxing holiday we have ever had.
Like so many previous occupants, we can’t bear to leave after an exquisite week in northern Corfu and the icing on the cake is Eliovassilema. Our stay has been a week of sublime relaxation and serenity, punctuated by visits from two eagles and the odd thunder and lightening symphony. We have been enraptured by this beautiful villa and island and we ventured out from our haven to explore if only to make sure we hadn’t died and gone to heaven.
Nick and Jane have provided every luxury in this beautiful house and Mother Nature takes it one step further. The setting is breathtaking and the climb in the car across potholes and narrow mountain roads is worth it. Even if it is a bit alarming at times, take it slow and the prize is at the end of your journey. We felt like we were on top of the world.
The quality of the decor and contents is five star and gave us a sense of luxury way beyond any expectation. It is quite honestly the best villa we have ever stayed in. The crowning glory is the infinity pool that provides hours of entertainment in the most glorious setting and views across the north west coastline. The mountain scenery and the flora and fauna show are really one of the best in the world. The sunsets are the sky’s tie breaker and the silent ethereal majesty of the evenings will stay with us forever.
The trips to Acharavi for restaurants were pleasantly rewarded with delicious authentic Greek food at great value and short drives took us to stunning beaches like Kalami for The White House of Durrells fame and lively pretty resorts like Kassiopi with its picturesque harbour. The villa is perfectly situated for exploring the delights of northern Corfu which has the most beautiful untouched coastline in the world. Small bays and pretty tavernas dot the shore and a great idea is to hire a small boat for a day so you can moor at places like Agni Bay and rub shoulders with the rich and famous or the hoipoloi like us as everyone’s welcome here. And a boat day trip to Corfu Old Town is a must - Venetian and British influences have left their imprint so this is like no other Greek city - its fading but majestic beauty feels like an Amalfi or Côte D’Azur masterpiece.
So thank you Nick and Jane for allowing us to enjoy your beautiful villa. We have fallen in love with Corfu and will return again and again now we have been let into the secret! Hopefully to stay in this heavenly villa again one day. We’ll keep it in our dreams and hearts till then.
Peaceful Villa with Amazing Views
The villa was fabulous, very well equipped and really private – we so enjoyed the feeling of peace and tranquility. The pool is perfect, the size and depth is just right.
I must compliment you on the bedding and towels, lovely and crisp, as well as the quality of the kitchen crockery and pots, so nice to use (apart from the frying pan which is sticky!).
Also must mention the books, games and videos – we so seldom sit down and play a game or watch a movie these days, so it’s really nice to have the opportunity to do so. And the candles and all the other little touches too numerous to list, you really have thought of everything.
We enjoyed our walks around the villa, and we saw plenty of wildlife as well as befriending a couple of cats. We saw Common Buzzards flying above the villa pretty much daily and a peregrine falcon as well. One night there was a Beech Marten on the patio, and I think I saw an owl too. We discovered that the bats roost under the porch roof tiles, it was fun to watch them emerge in the evening, and we even saw a snake near the pool room steps.
Definitely top of my list for privacy and comfort, incredible sea views, amazing sunsets - thank you Nick and Jane for making our holiday perfect.
So pleased you enjoyed the villa and its location.
We'll clean/replace the frying pan!
We had a wonderful week in your beautiful villa which is very well appointed and so tastefully furnished. The relaxing pool area was just what we were looking for with amazing views over the olive groves to the sea. My husband and I very much enjoyed exploring the area and discovering lovely bays and beaches, we also took a boat trip to Corfu town which we enjoyed. Thanks again Nick for letting us commence our holiday on a Friday instead of Saturday. Having both recently retired this was just the quiet chilled out break we were looking for. I will definitely recommend 'Sunset Villa' to friends.
Tranquil home from home villa
Well, what can I say that has not already been said! This villa is up in the mountains near Acharavi, which is only about a 5 minute drive away, with plenty of supermarkets and shops for your stay. The villa itself is home from home, in such a stunning location. Amazing views from every window, if you are looking for peace and tranquility, this is definitely the villa to pick. We were only booked for a week but had wished we could have stayed for two. Our holiday was to relax, and that is what we did! When we did venture out, the local beaches are great, and we also booked ABC Corfu sailing, www.abcorfusailing.gr, which was an awesome way to see the beautiful Corfu coast. We could not recommend this villa enough, and if you book, you will not be disappointed.
Thank you Nick and Jane for letting us use your stunning Villa

Fabulous family holiday!
Sunset villa is by far the most wonderful villa and setting we have stayed in over 15 years of holidays. It enjoys incredible views over trees and mountains to the sea in a convenient yet totally private location.
The villa itself was spacious and generously equipped, with a good size pool which the kids (6&9) could not keep out of!
There were lots of tavernas and beaches to visit and explore and "Ice Dreams" was a definite bonus for the kids.
It was an absolute pleasure dealing with Nick, who was both friendly and very helpful before and throughout our stay.
Would definitely recommend!

The nearest beach is Almiros beach which is about 2km from the villa although there are many beaches to explore on the way to Kassiopi and in the coves beyond.
Nearest airport is in Corfu Town about 50 minutes drive. Due to the secluded and elevated position of the villa car hire is essential and will enable you to really explore and appreciate this beautiful island. You can of course do it by boat too! There are several boat hire companies and numerous little bays with tavernas to discover. A return visit to Corfu Town is great by boat from Kassiopi - more fun and no problems parking!
The nearest restaurant is 2km away (you can arrange for them to cook at the villa if you want). Acharavi has several restaurants - but are also many in the surrounding mountains.
The charm and colour of Venetian Corfu Town is well worth a visit as is the beautiful bay of Kalami.
A boat is recommended as a great way to explore the stunning coastline where you could enjoy a secluded swim at one of the many beautiful bays or stop off to relax over a long lunch at one of the many tavernas.
