  • Pretty house in Agios Stephanos
  • Charming and comfortable
  • Delightful sea views
  • Simpson family extras available
  • Shops, restaurants and beach 2-minute walk

This pretty house is set wonderfully close to the sea, just above the horseshoe-shaped bay of Agios Stephanos. The lovely harbour is the heart of the village, with a scattering of waterfront restaurants and visited by small boats and yachts, all of which can be observed at leisure from Villa Rahi's shady terrace.

The house is just two minutes’ walk from the shops and restaurants of Agios Stephanos, which remains one of the most sought-after addresses on Corfu. Privacy and proximity to a village centre are generally mutually exclusive, yet this house combines both with aplomb.

Customer feedback

Our stay at Villa Rahi was perfect and exceeded our expectations. The villa is in a fantastic location just a couple of minutes’ walk from the local tavernas and supermarkets. San Stefanos is lovely, the tavernas are excellent and everyone was so friendly. We found the local representative, Jackie, very helpful and unobtrusive. We will definitely be using Simpson Travel in the future.
Louise & Iain McCall – September 2019

Rahi in Agios Stephanos was absolutely amazing – a perfect villa, beautifully kept, in a superb location just a few steps up from the vibrant classy village. Simpson service is second to none and the reps are amazing. Unfair to comment on individuals as everyone was superb, but a Jackie went the extra mile. Simpson truly stands out as the best at what they do. Already booked next year in a new location, since we know Simpson will look after us, as well as the year after – a greater compliment cannot be paid.
Nigel &Lindsay – August 2019

What a wonderful week we’ve had – fabulous weather, superb villa – everything we needed on our doorstep and the terrific help and advice from Jackie – a truly wonderful rep! Thank you.
Claire, Martin & family – August 2019

An excellent experience altogether. The villa is superb and very well positioned within San Stephano. The Simpson reps, both at the airport and at the villa, couldn't have been more pleasant and helpful. All of which makes for a great holiday.
John & Lynda Gay – June 2019

Spent a very lovely two weeks here and we can now fully understand why the villa is booked up so far in advance! Many thanks to Jackie for making our holiday so enjoyable.
Karen & Graham – June 2019

Another idyllic fortnight. Rahi really hits the spot with its perfect location and fantastic views. It’s a delightful villa – I’m afraid the days slip by too quickly. Once again first class service from Simpson.
Paul & Elaine – June 2019

Another amazing holiday at Rahi. Thank you Jackie and the Simpson team for unfailing help once again.
Lynda & John – June 2019

I love Rahi. It was a spectacular villa with a fantastic view. Agios Stephanos is a lovely little town with amazing tavernas and the nicest people. The food was wonderful. We rented a speed boat from one of your brilliant boat hire companies. Thank you Simpson Travel for making our stay so enjoyable. We will really miss it but we hope to come back again soon.
Martha (11) & Fred (7) – May 2019

What a villa and what a view! First time to Corfu and Agios Stephanos is fabulous. Recommendations: Palaiokastritsa, Angelokastro, Lakones and Makrades although in high season propably to be avovided as roads very narrow. View from Lakones is splendid though. Village of Perithia well worth a visit. Thanks to Jackie for arranging a boat pick-up to Agni Taverna – another good dinner – and for her local knowledge. Views and coastline around the north east are spectacular. Owners of the villa and their family very welcoming and friendly.
Lorraine & Ian Moore – May 2019

Our first visit to Corfu. All our expectations were met. The villa is fabulous and we felt at home immediately. How could you not fall in love with the stunning view? We were tired on our arrival and spent the first few days enjoying the walks and all the village had to offer. We met Jackie and realised she knew everything and she gave us some very helpful pointers. We hired a boat for the day and had the best day ever – in retrospect, we should have hired it for the week. We hope to return to Villa Rahi asap if there is a week available ever! Thank you.
Tina & David, Carrie & Duncan – September 2018

Our third visit and nothing changes. We had a wonderful, relaxing week at Villa Rahi. Restoration of the heart and soul. And stomachs. Please don’t change anything. We will be back, when we can and if there is space for us.
Marie-Anne & Richard Griffin – September 2018

Villa Rahi is the best place and you have a great view of San Stefano. This was our second time and it gets better every time.
Kitty (aged 8) – August 2018

From the moment of our first enquiry about Villa Rahi, the Simpson Travel team took all the stress out of our arrangements. The villa is in an exceptional position overlooking the comings and goings of Agios Stefanos harbour. Staying there is made all the more pleasurable by the warmth and generosity of the owners who live close by. The icing on the cake was the concierge service so brilliantly executed by the Simpson Travel local representative, Jackie. We are looking forward to returning over the coming years.
Mary & Bob Russell – August 2018

I loved Villa Rahi. It was one of the best holidays I’ve ever had. We rented a boat and had lots of fun. All the restaurants are nice and the villa is lovely. We also found a cat and named it Felix!.
Tom Gray (age 9) – August 2018

Villa Rahi rocks! This was our second time in Villa Rahi – it has to be the best view of the bay and it’s so cool being so close to the shops and restaurants. Our children voted this as one of their favourite places to stay and we totally agree with them.
Andy, Ros, George & Kitty Williams – August 2018

Don't make too many plans if you stay at Villa Rahi because you will not fulfil them – Villa Rahi will always be calling you back!
Mr Hinson – July 2018

I am almost reluctant to praise Villa Rahi too much as it has taken three years to get a week here after our previous visit as it’s so popular. The view from the terrace is amazing over the bay – watching yachts, speedboats and swifts diving in our pool! Down a few steps to the tavernas and bars or to catch a water taxi to Agni Bay. Hire a speedboat and explore the coves down the coast as we did. It’s the perfect villa for a couple, or two in our case. As with previous holidays the information and advice from the UK office when booking was excellent and with Simpson Travel the standard of accommodation, transfers and representatives in resort is consistently high – add on those little touches and it makes for a perfect stress-free holiday!

This was our first time to Greece, and to be truthful, the villa and setting shown on-line made our decision to choose Corfu. We were not disappointed. Villa Rahi is lovely and in a beautiful location – there is always something to look at from every vantage point. We were lazier than maybe we should have been, just visiting some of the bays nearby. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. Simpson Travel, once again, you have done us proud.

Sheila and Ken – June 2018

This was our first time in Greece, and the villa setting made us decide to choose Corfu. We were not disappointed. Villa Rahi is a lovely villa in a beautiful location with always something to watch from every vantage point. We were lazier than maybe we should have been, just visiting some of the bays nearby. Everyone has been so friendly and helpful. Jackie, the Simpson Travel representative, was great, offering advice about tavernas and where to buy meat and fish, which we then enjoyed for the barbecue. Maria did the cleaning chores quietly, always with a greeting and a smile. Simpson Travel has once again done us proud.
Sheila & Ken Connah – June 2018

A fabulous two weeks spent in Corfu. Both Villa Christianna and Villa Rahi were everything we could have wished for. Lazy days spent by the pool or exploring idyllic coves from a boat before heading to a local taverna for excellent local dishes. Simpson Travel has again excelled.
Wendy Lloyd-Bailey – June 2018

This was our first time travelling with Simpson Travel and our first at Villa Rahi – but it certainly won't be our last with either. The experience (from the first enquiry right through the whole process, the booking, the actual holiday and the departure) was excellent. We are already researching our next holiday.
Mrs S Groom – May 2018

Villa Rahi was everything we hoped for – Simpson Travel gave us excellence at every turn and we loved our second visit to Corfu just as much as we loved our first. Now we are planning our third visit!
Chris & Mary – May 2018

We have travelled with Simpson Travel several times and have always found them to be superb, but Villa Rahi is over and beyond the best. Great villa, lovely rep and have been impressed with the superb service from start to the finish. Agios Stephanos is just down the steps with good shops and great places to eat – we will be back!
Mr Parkes – October 2017

Perfect villa to watch the world go by. Simpson Travel service has been excellent. Thank you to Jackie for all her help. We will be back!
Linda & Nigel – September 2017

Simpson Travel has been superb (we have travelled with them to various destinations and always found them excellent) and Jackie went above and beyond. Villa Rahi is simply a wonderful place to recharge the batteries and watch all the to-ing and fro-ing in the harbour. We can't wait to come back!
The Johnson Family – September 2017

Our first time with Simpson Travel. We would definitely use them again and would definitely stay in this villa again. The villa is in a great position and so close to everything you'll need! We hope you have as relaxing time as we enjoyed.
The Stevens Family – August 2017

Beautiful Villa Rahi, wonderful views. The owners have been very helpful! We would definitely come back!
The Sealey Family – August 2017

We have travelled with many tour operators over the years and in Corfu generally using what are termed the 'up-market' villa operators. Simpson Travel is moving ahead of the field and we would recommend them to anybody.
Mrs Elsegood – July 2017

Third time with Simpson Travel and again enjoyed an excellent holiday this time in Corfu at Agios Stephanos. Delightful little village friendly people and very good villa. Continue to be impressed by the quality of the Simpson Travel offering.
Mr Charles – May 2017

A first class service provided by Simpson Travel and their representatives adding to an enjoyable holiday and for peace of mind. Have used before and will use again. Many thanks to all at Simpson Travel.
Mr Taylor – May 2017

Villa Rahi was absolutely perfect for our family holiday in August from the beautiful interior of the villa to the gorgeous pool and terrace. Its elevated position meant we could sit and enjoy wonderful views across the bay, yet it was just a couple of minutes down the steps to be in the heart of the village. There’s a lovely relaxed ambience down in Agios Stephanos, and Villa Rahi was the ideal villa from which to enjoy it.
Mrs O'Brien – August 2016

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.
