The villa Olive Grove is a beautiful villa set in a secluded elevated position which offers versatile spacious, comfortable accommodation both inside and out with its own 'Infinity' pool, parking and stunning views of both sea and sunsets which can be enjoyed from the extensive terracing surrounding this beautiful home. Situated in an idyllic position amongst olive groves in a quiet hamlet, it is only a brief walk to the traditional Greek village of Perithia which offers several supermarkets, excellent family tavernas, cafe and post office. Although in an extremely private area, a short walk will take you to St Spyridon family friendly sandy beach. This area is also very popular with walkers and naturalists. Alternatively a short drive will either take you to 'Hydropolis' water park near Acharavi, the fishing village of Kassiopi (about 5-6km), various beach coves or 'Old Perithia'. Inland is mountainous with fantastic views of the coast and Albania is just across the water.

About Mr and Mrs Dawson
We are an ordinary family who loved being in Corfu so much we built a house there!! and are now offering others the opportunity to enjoy it as much as we do in a rustic setting to allow you to experience as near to the greek way of life as possible. We now have many families that return to us year after year, and have a visitors book at the house for comments and tips from our guests to future guests sharing their experiences, likes and dislikes
Why Mr and Mrs Dawson chose Pelekito
The Olive Grove is privately owned (and built) by us and not a company - it is a much loved holiday home for our family when not rented out. All rental enquiries are managed by us which hopefully provides the personal touch to be able to answer any queries and cover most requests.
Pool / Spa
Lovely location, gorgeous views, nice beaches
Nice spacious villa that is pretty well located for nearby places of interest. Pool was great fun. Sun was fierce on the terraces. Very restful and beautiful surroundings. Privileged to have seen some of the Corfiot wildlife like fireflies, butterflies, mantis, table lizards and others......!
this villa has fabulous views quite location but near bars and taverners also within easy reach of beautiful beaches the villa its self was just perfect for our family and wouldn't hesitate to go back!
Peaceful villa with fabulous views
Situated among olive groves in the north-east corner of Corfu, this villa has dramatic views of the coast, sea and offshore islands with spectacular sunsets most evenings. The infinity pool is regularly used by swallows skimming the surface for a drink, fireflies flit among the trees at night and house martins build their nests under the veranda roof. At the end of the road, there's an ice cream parlour selling really good home-made ice cream, and shops and tavernas not far away. Everything you could ask for!
Olive Grove, een prachtig huis op een uitgelezen plek
We hebben een heerlijke korte vakantie gehad in dit ruime huis in de olijfgaarden van Pelekito. Het huis zelf is schoon, netjes en comfortabel, beschikt over een prima keuken, en drie slaapkamers met goede bedden. In de woonkamer is TV met kabelaansluiting en, sinds deze week ook een goed werkende WiFi. Rond het huis zijn ruime terrassen op verschillende niveaus die ruimte bieden voor zon en schaduw. Het fijne zwembad was nog wat te koud in mei, maar weerspiegelde 's avonds de mooiste zonsondergangen boven zee. Voor rust, ruimte en privacy zit je hier goed. De plek in het noordoosten biedt ruime mogelijkheden voor prachtige dagtochten met de auto door spectaculaire berglandschappen en naar baaien en vissersplaatsen die aanzienlijk meer toeristisch zijn. Verder verliep het contact met de eigenaar heel plezierig, en was er ter plekke een zeer behulpzame en snel bereikbare prettige vertegenwoordiger. Aanrader.
Special interest holidays:
There are boat hire facilities based locally, for those who wish to practice their sea skills!
Local dive centers in nearby villages inc Kassiopi.
Local Waterpark 'Hydropolis'- 10 min drive from Villa
Numerous coves for snorkelling
Historical interest / Greek culture re 'Durrell' followers.
The local sandy beach is St Spiridon (approx 8-900mts) along the road which can be walked to, however as it only takes a few minutes to drive to, we would advise this, unless a keen walker. There are various other nearby beaches and coves which can be reached easily by car in 5-10 minutes including 'sandy beach' which is a local family friendly beach with lots of sand, shallow waters and tavernas.
Corfu Airport is about 1 hour's drive away from the villa. There are frequent flights to and from the island throughout the season March-November, although it is possible to get to Corfu via Athens all year, also ferries from Italy (inc venice) and mainland Greece which provide an alternative means of travel.
