Recently refurbished by one of Corfu’s most respected architects, Villa Christianna nestles discreetly into the hillside, surrounded by olive trees and overlooking Agios Stephanos harbour. The villa is built over three levels to accommodate the steep terrain, resulting in wonderful views and a lot of steps! The interiors are bright and airy, the outdoor space is private and peaceful, with plenty of room for relaxing or dining by the rather seductively curvy pool.
This villa is ideal for a group of friends or a family with older children. There’s table tennis for family tournaments and two, small teen-friendly bars in Agios Stephanos, a steep, seven-minute walk down the hill, safely out of parental ear-shot but within easy reach if necessary.

The villa, overlooking the bay of Agios Stephanos has stunning views and a short stroll into the bay where a number of restaurants and bars await to serve their delicious offerings. The villa is well appointed with a lovely swimming pool and outside areas. Lots of steps however so take note (good to work off the extra calamari!!)...There are a number of walks around taking you to deserted coves and by car, it's easy to drive to a number of surrounding beaches. Boat hire is available at Agios Stephanos and well worth the effort (book in advance although thankfully Jackie our rep on Corfu seemed to be able to wave a magic wand on any requests you might have!). We arranged a chef for one evening through Jackie and the food was simply spectacular. Otherwise, we cooked on the BBQ outdoors or wandered down to the tavernas nearby. Jackie organised an evening to restaurants at Agni beach with boat transfers from Aghios Stephanos - a lovely evening out. We had a wonderful holiday with our two adult children and their partners and can't thank Jackie and her husband enough for all their help making it a memorable stay.
Roger Hughes – February 2021
A perfect villa for us – 6 adults and 2 babies. We all felt the villa was lovely, beautiful views and impeccably presented. Pre-travel worries about pool safety were unfounded as the pool is on a separate level to the villa and easy to restrict access – a perfect arrangement for walking babies. The views are stunning and good hiking routes through the mountains are easy to access from here – although signposting is, ahem, incomplete! Take plenty of water and the best maps you can find. And don’t rely on your phone to pick up trails on Google maps. At night the sky can be extremely clear, excellent for stargazers. We’ve also had some beautiful sunrises. We’ve enjoyed the pool and table tennis and had good fun finding fish for the barbecue – malori and sardines were popular. We’d like to say a big thank you to Jackie, who has been very helpful with suggestions and has worked hard to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable.
Sheena, Robert, James, Abby, Alex, Miles, Oliver & Leo – September 2019
Beautiful villa in a perfect location. The villa is close to shops and services but they don't intrude. Views are stunning and there was a good range of waterside restaurants just five minutes down the hill. The location is quiet but there are excellent hikes just a few minutes' drive away. There is a sheltered bay perfect for swimming at the end of the drive. Even during the last week in September the water was warm enough for the babies to 'swim'. We talked about making this an annual trip!
The Ashford family – September 2019
We have enjoyed a wonderfully relaxing holiday. The views are stunning and the layout of the villa is perfect for family living. The pool area is wonderful and we spent much time relaxing around in the glorious sunshine. The children loved playing in the pool. We also hired a chef, Vasso, who produced some lovely food. The food basket on arrival was perfect, cleaning service great and Jackie did a great job of keeping us abreast of things in Corfu.
Jasmine, Savannah, Jamie, Katie – August 2019
We have had the most amazing week (absolutely wish we had booked a second!). The villa is beautiful – the views stunning. But the greatest addition to the holiday was Jackie! She arranged at short notice a boat and captain to take us to Paxos. What an amazing day. All in all a fabulous week.
Sue, Lisa, Josh & Charlie – August 2019
Our trip was wonderful, everything was organised really well with every last detail carefully arranged. It was an absolute pleasure to not have to worry about anything. The Simpson reps in Paxos and Corfu, Leona in Paxos and Jackie in Corfu, were fantastic! They both booked restaurants, taxis, boats, everything we asked for was done quickly, efficiently and always with a smile. Thank you Simpson Travel, I look forward to booking my next holiday with you.
Susan Wallace – August 2019
We have had a marvellous week and settled into the relaxed rhythm of life in this beautiful spot. We loved the space and coolness of this stunningly designed villa.
The Drysdale family – June 2019
Both young and old(ish) in our 7-strong party thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Christianna. Very well equipped and in a perfect location, peaceful in the day and 5-minute walk to the tavernas and bars at night. Simpson representative, Jackie, is super knowledgeable about the island and is always available to assist where required. What I appreciate from Simpson from booking to returning home is the total confidence in simply being looked after, thank you again.
The Wagland family and friends – June 2019
We had a wonderful week in terrific Villa Christianna. Even though the weather was not always great, we still enjoyed every minute. The great location within walking distance to the shops and tavernas made all the difference.
The Reid & Laidlaw families – June 2018
This was our fifth trip with Simpson Travel and we have always found the accommodation to be of a good standard and the resort staff to be very helpful and easy to reach when needed, but keeping a distance unless required. Villa Christiana is a fabulous villa in a lovely spot, with fabulous views of the bay. The artwork in the villa is wonderful and all the rooms are well furnished and spacious. The outside areas are well furnished and we enjoyed many evenings dining at the outdoor table with meals prepared for us by Chef Alex (he comes highly recommended by us). It’s just a 10-minute walk from the centre of the village which has good restaurants and water taxis to other bays e.g. Agni for alternative dining experiences.
The Jacksons – June 2018
A wonderful villa – spectacular views and a great pool – we still haven't mastered the table tennis. Jackie was fabulous – could not have asked for a better service and recommendations.
The Couchman Family – August 2017
An amazing week in a fantastic villa. The view on arrival was breathtaking – it has been a joy to marvel over the beautiful bay each day. The pool area is exceptional – a great idea to have a fridge full of ice-cold water under one of the arches. We loved eating down in the village each day – the various restaurants all serve genuine Greek/Corfiot dishes. We also had chefs cook for us one night at the villa – we can recommend the quality of the food and service – Jackie can organise this. A brilliant holiday. We will be back.
The Welfare & Dalton Families – July 2017
Our welcome pack was one of the nicest and most substantial we have received. It was lovely to be able to book restaurants through our Simpson Travel rep, who was extremely helpful. The villa was of an exceptional standard.
Mr Wilkinson – July 2016
We have just experienced our first holiday with Simpson Travel, and will without hesitation book another holiday with them. The villa was exactly where they said it would be, the photos were very well taken to give us an accurate visual of what we were booking, not exaggerated or enhanced. We had a very useful welcome pack, which meant we didn't need to rush out to stock up on essentials (plus some nice treats). The villa was regularly cleaned, and whilst we had hired a car with the intention of exploring, the villa was so comfortable and private, we spent our time there, happy to cook at 'home' or visit a local taverna. Just fabulous!
Mrs Bloomfield – May 2014
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.
