About Christina Panagiotidou
Alex and Christina live in Arillas with our two daughters. We love swimming with the girls on the beach, doing some yoga, joining the wonderful artists that visit the village and enjoying the countryside of Arillas. We also like dancing at the Arillas festivals (where the best souvlaki in Northern Corfu is served!). You will find us at our Green Corfu office, just 200 meters from the beach, opposite the pizzeria. If you are ever in Arillas, come by for a chat and coffee or a glass of our delicious home-made wine!

A peaceful hideaway in rural Corfu
A really tidy, clean villa in a very quite secluded location! Very rustic surroundings. Local bakery and restaurant a bit to far to walk in the August heat so definitely needed the car! Local beaches sandy and relaxed which was a real bonus.
Christina well organised and helpful. Thank you.
We had a fantastic holiday at this villa! It’s completely secluded and the pool is gorgeous!
The villa is very clean and well maintained. We loved the location and as first timers to the island, absolutely loved it!
The House is a good condition, very Calw and lonesome
We enjoy the Pool, the bedroms and the Perfect Kirchen. The Service was Perfect!
Relaxation, peace and seclusion - a perfect retreat
Villa Gardenia was the perfect place for us to relax in a peaceful location, yet within easy reach of Arillas with its excellent tavernas and super beach. The villa was well equipped with reverse level living which meant the downstairs bedrooms were cool in the evenings. The living area was comfortable with everything we needed for our holiday, including wifi and phone for relatives to call us if need be - this was important to us as my mother in law has vascular dementia, is deteriorating and medical staff may have needed to contact us urgently - there is not always a signal for mobile phones in the area. The villa was very clean and comfortable - had a really good night's sleep for the 12 days we were there. The young lady who came to clean during the week was lovely, and very efficient. The pool was wonderful, accessed from the bedrooms (we were a couple so only used one room) with some shade somewhere around the pool at all times of the day. We spent two days not moving from the pool - swimming, reading, watching the swallows, house martins and swifts swoop down and drink on the wing during the day, and the bats at night. Lots of butterflies about. Temperature over 30C. The only sounds were from nature, the occasional dog, and on a couple of evenings we strained to hear some Greek music drifting across the valley. We prepared a couple of Greek salads with feta on the days we had at the villa, and ate out in the evenings. Perfect!
The nearest taverna, Mon Amour, at Kavvadades, just 5 minutes drive or a slightly longer walk (uphill going there, but downhill all the way back) and the food here was very good served by friendly, cheerful people. It is a family concern, and they care that you have a good experience. There is a bakery where we purchased our bread daily, a post office and a kafenion also in this village.
We have been to Greece over the last 40 years and seen many changes, but Arillas and the environment are not spoiled - let's hope it stays that way. We were fortunate to be there when the Sound and Silence Festival was being held at Gayatri Mandir music Temple in Arillas and enjoyed the music of Estas Tonne - beautiful guitar music which feeds the soul, in a stunning setting. We also did a very brief tour of the Corfu Brewery in Arillas as my husband has been a craft brewer of beer for 35 years.
Green Corfu (Christina, Alex and Christos) were extremely helpful & friendly. I would highly recommend Villa Gardenia.
Sheer perfection, highly recommended
Swifts and swallows flying over the pool, absolute peace and quiet, perfect escape from real life and within easy reach of beautiful areas of Corfu. Highly recommended. And the homemade orange and kumquat marmalade was the nicest I've ever had!
Thank you so much for your kind words. Looking forward to seeing you again some time in the future!
Peaceful and relaxing
The villa was lovely. Two bedrooms with doors to the garden and pool area and the open plan living/kitchen area up stairs with a huge sunny terrace. Everything clean and working and well equipped, including wi-fi. The directions to the villa were easy to follow and Christina even met us along the way to lead us through the final few turnings which might have been tricky to find in the dark(we arrived on a Sunday evening). We stayed during the week before the season really starts in Corfu so many places were closed but we were given lots of tips for places that were open and for local supermarkets, bakeries, and walks in the area. All in all, a peaceful and relaxing place to stay with a choice of different beaches a short drive away.
I am really happy you enjoyed you stay at Villa Gardenia. It is indeed a place to relax, secluded and yet close to many interesting places. Thank you for taking care of our home! We were happy to have you in our villa!
