Villa Sotiris

Corfu, Greece

  • Spacious family villa
  • Delightful sea views
  • Beautiful lawned gardens
  • Walking distance to Agios Stephanos

Corfu’s north eastern coastline is one of the most enduringly lovely in the whole of Greece, little changed since Gerald Durrell first wrote about his family holidays. Gleaming, white-pebble coves shelter sleek super-yachts, discreetly opulent villas dot the hillsides and steep, olive-clad slopes plunge into a sea so blue that it defines all others. Our favourite place here is Agios Stephanos, without question one of the most sought-after villages in Corfu, and an idyllic place to rediscover the simple pleasures in life. Days can be whiled away here and at nearby beautiful Kerasia Beach, or better still, puttering along the coast in a small motor boat discovering tiny deserted bays for a delightful private picnic or swim.

Three-bedroomed Villa Sotiris enjoys the best of both worlds, set on the headland between Agios Stephanos and neighbouring Kerasia, with its long sweep of pebble beach. Simply styled and with stunning views, this house offers ample space for a relaxed family holiday, including lawned gardens and wide pool terrace for sunbathing. Best of all, Sotiris is within easy walking distance of Agios Stephanos village with its picture-perfect harbour, authentic tavernas and laid-back bars.

Whilst maintaining its own independence and privacy, Villa Sotiris can be rented along with Bolovinos House to provide a spacious venue for an extended family gathering or a group of friends.

Customer feedback

We had a wonderful two weeks in Villa Sotiris. The villa was spotlessly clean (Sophia was amazing) and the pool and garden delightful. Its location is excellent, and you are able to walk into San Stefano for an evening drink or two, and of course dinner. Jackie, our Simpson Travel representative, was fab – she made some great recommendations and organised boats and water taxis. Dino’s trip to Corfu Town is great.
The Geoghegan Family – September 2018

We are already booked in and looking forward to the exact repeat holiday (for the umpteenth time!) for 2018! Our endorsement of Simpson Travel can't get any stronger!
Andy, Catherine, Ellie & Anna Blair – August 2018

We really enjoyed lovely Villa Sotiris and will definitely come again. It was our second time in San Stefanos and we are glad that it is still as beautiful and friendly. Thanks to Jackie, the Simpson Travel representative, for her recommendations and assistance.
The Roberts family – June 2018

This was our second stay at Villa Sotiris and it was just as good as last year, so much so, we will be going back again next year! The villa is very well located for those who do not want to drive whilst on holiday! The villa is very private with beautiful gardens and a great view.
Hazel Southron – June 2018

Great holiday. Best Simpson Travel villa yet. Love the walk to the tavernas, no need to rely on the car!
The Roberts Family – September 2017

Perfect villa for a family. Well maintained and cared for with great views. Super location and well looked after by Jackie – thank you for the taverna reservations! We had a great week!
Mark, Sue, Jack & Eleanor – August 2017

Had a great holiday in Corfu – Simpson Travel was extremely efficient from the moment we booked until the end of our holiday. Highly recommend.
Mrs Brockbank – August 2017

Another excellent holiday, we look forward to more.
Mr Carver – July 2017 

It was our sixth time back to Agios Stephanos but the first time with Simpson Travel. We found everything to be a bit more efficient, we particularly liked the reps being there on departure. It was the slickest departure we have ever had! The villa was well situated and very private with lovely views and the garden was beautiful. Jackie, the rep, was very helpful and Sophia the maid was lovely. We have booked again for next year!

Simpson Travel always do the simple things well and they know their customer. This makes for a great experience and a wonderful relaxed holiday. Thank you.
Mr Robert – August 2016

Villa Sotiris is delightful for a quiet, get-away-from-it all retreat in a charming small village which is well served by a good selection of local shops, bars and restaurants and is located in a picturesque, unspoiled bay.
Mr Ervine – September 2015

A week in paradise! We loved the villa. The perfect place to relax.
Mr Fox – July 2015

We cannot recommend Simpson Travel highly enough. From the dedicated BA flight on a Sunday, to the attentive (but not suffocating!) service in resort, our holiday was perfect. This is the sixth time we have booked with Simpson Travel and the fourth time with them in Corfu; and we have already booked next year in Corfu again as a result of the wonderful holidays we have had with them.
Mr Hillier – July 2015

A massive thank you to our rep Peter – he is credit to Simpson Travel and they are lucky to have him. By far and away our best rep in over 20 years of holidaying/self-catering in the Mediterranean. No task was too great and he truly made our holiday a breeze.
Mrs Wilson – June 2015

Another excellent week courtesy of Simpson Travel. A beautiful villa and first-rate service. We look forward to travelling with you again next year.
Mr Williams – October 2013

Another great holiday with Simpson Travel and a special thank you to representatives Peter and Bev who helped us to enjoy our holidays so much.
Mr Smith – September 2013

We would definitely recommend Simpson Travel to others (already have). We had a lovely, hassle-free family holiday in Corfu.
Mrs Deen – August 2013

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.
