  • Shops/taverna 10-minute walk

Omolos House sits at the end of a quiet country lane, with magnificent 180-degree views out over the bay of Agios Stephanos to Corfu town and beyond. This is one of the most sought-after spots on the whole island, a 15-minute drive from lovely Kerasia beach, with a convenient local shop for your daily bread and other necessities within walking distance.

A location like this demands something quite special to do justice to it, and Omolos House doesn’t disappoint. The British owners set out to create a villa spacious enough for two families to relax in style, privacy and comfort, and we love what they’ve achieved. The whole villa is beautifully finished inside, though you’ll probably prefer to be outside as much as possible, taking in the big skies and the soothing ebb and flow of the sea that becomes almost hypnotic after a while.

Once dusk starts to fall, it’s time to crack open something cold while you decide whether it’s going to be a barbecue night or a trip to one of the waterfront tavernas at Agios Stephanos or Kassiopi. And if eating in gets the most votes, you can take advantage of the free delivery service from the local shop, leaving you all the time in the world to do as much or as little as you feel.

Customer feedback

We had a lovely week with wall-to-wall sunshine and blue skies – bliss! The villa was lovely – kitchen is well equipped, we enjoyed the games and DVDs in the evenings and LOVED the heated pool which made a big difference at this time of year. Jackie from Simpson Travel was very helpful – booking boat rental (twice, we enjoyed it so much) and lunch at Agni Taverna. We also enjoyed Kerasia beach and taverna (idyllic setting, friendly and good food), Kalami beach (kayaking and paddle boarding) and Kaminaki beach for more adventurous watersports which we highly recommend for slightly older children and adults. Snorkelling at Kassiopi Bay was lovely and evening drinks at Eucalyptus in Agios Stephanos was fun. Made it to the top of the highest mountain, Pantokrator, for good views of the island. All in all a real treat with a week of sunshine before heading into a British winter.
The Thomas Family – Oct 2018

The house is amazing and the view is stunning from the pool, great for photos especially when it’s dark and the pool lights come on. We had so much fun and the food is amazing. Good selection of movies and games to choose from. We love it here and would love to come again. Fantastic house! Great view, lovely swimming.
Caroline, Grace and Poppy (aged 15, 15 and 11) Oct 2018

 

This was our first time in Corfu and we loved it. Omolos House is wonderfully set up for two families with masses of comfortable seating and sunbeds for all. The area is stunning with so much to do – or not and just enjoy. We would highly recommend eating at Kerasia as well as spending time in this lovely cove. Thank you for looking after us and keeping the house and grounds so well during our stay. We look forward to returning.
The Keens – August 2018

We had a wonderful first trip to Corfu! Lots to do, delicious food and such a stunning house from which to explore. We’re all converted and hope to return to Omolos House.
The Alexanders – August 2018

It’s worth getting up early to see the dawn from this villa – it’s spectacular every morning. Omolos House is a lovely villa for a family holiday. It’s beautifully situated and has ample living space. The local representatives and staff were all most helpful and friendly. We very much liked Avlaki Beach and restaurant, a little less fancy than others but quieter and with fantastic food.
The Woodcock Family – July 2018

Omolos House is truly a lovely villa with amazing views, especially when the sun rises in the morning! The villa has everything you need for a perfect holiday. Kerasia beach is a lovely 10-15 minute stroll down the lane. We visited many of the restaurants in San Stephanos. The staff at the villa were excellent and extremely helpful so a big thank you! A perfect week in a perfect setting.
G & M Smith – May 2018

Our choice of Greek properties is as diverse as the islands themselves, ranging from simple seaside charm to genuine luxury and style. Much of our portfolio is privately owned, and price alone is therefore not a universal guide. We contract all our accommodation in person, and each property has its individual appeal.

To help you make the right choice based on your own priorities, we have devised a simple grading guide to be considered in conjunction with each individual property description, awarding up to a maximum of five stars for the below categories.
