Really nice villa

Holiday Rating: 5

Really nice villa, if a little small on the inside. Large private pool area and two bathrooms were good. Sun in the pool area gone by 5-5:30pm due to shade from trees, even though sun set at 7:45. Quite a few wasps and would have been nice to have citronella candles or something provided to help avoid these as no seating to eat indoors. Undercover though so ok in the rain. The beds themselves were good and aircon worked well. Location a bit in the middle of nowhere but only a 10 min drive from Agios Gordios and with a car we found it very easy to reach all corners of the island we wanted to go to. Mountains can't be avoided when crossing Corfu! We had a few issues but when we messaged they got back to us quickly and did their best to help us. WiFi was a little dodgy. Overall I think it was great value for money and we really enjoyed our stay.

Là logement est très bien situé facile à trouvé et les instructions sont très simple surtout si Vs avez Google Map. L’extérieur de la villa est parfait, la piscine est propre. Les deux chambres sont grandes et disposent chacune d’une salle de bain avec wc. Nous avons eu un pb d e au chaude à notre arrivé que l agence à très rapidement résolut ! Les quelques points négatifs : - maison humide ( saison ?): placard qui sent l’humidité et trace -mauvaise évacuation ds la salle de bain du bas - gros point noir la propreté, beaucoup de poussière, sol pas propre -vaisselle pas propre - cafetière complètement entartré que nous avons dû nettoyé. Malgré ces quelques points d’améliorations, nous avons passé un très bon moment ds cette maison qui entièrement climatisé !

Great very modern location, about 15 min by car from Corfu. We really enjoyed our stay. Perfect for four, probably six persons. We were three and had more than enough space. The Kitchen is a little bit small, but for a holiday ok. Service was perfect. Ideal for a visit in the warmer months, as the terrace and pool can be used so optimally.

Villa Zoe EOS Travel

Holiday Rating: 4

Villa in a lovely area in Agios Prokopolos. The property is in need of some cosmetic work but we recognise that it is the end of season and walls and furniture will become worn during the season. The upstairs bedroom was lovely and the bathroom modern. The downstairs bedroom was difficult for a person with a disability due to having 2 doors to contend with to access the bathroom from the bedroom. The kitchen was too small if you are self catering indoors. The cupboards smelled damp The kettle did not work and kept blowing the trip. That said, Stella very quickly and politely replaced the kettle with a new one. Stella came in once during the week to change bedding towels and empty the main bin, which was quite sufficient. The toilet bins however were not emptied during the stay.The exterior of the property was lovely, lots of private space and a delightful pool. The pool was immaculate. The pool pump was quite loud but you soon became used to it. The pool man did indeed come three times during the week. Parking was tight and we were not sure which parking area was correct for Villa Zoe, though was not a problem. The road is right next to the villa and it cane become quite busy at times so therefore can be quite noisy if motorbikes and coaches are loud. That said, it was not a problem for ourselves. It would have been useful to have a list of nearest tavernas and directions in the villa - we used to go to Benitses as local Tavernas appeared to have closed down/shut for season?Eos Travel were very efficient with the booking and contacting us before throughout the stay. EOS Car Hire was particularly efficient and the meet greet and drop off was excellent, speedy informative.

Holiday Rating: 5

The company offers very professional services, quick communication, travel tips etc. Our stay in general was pleasant. However the LOCATION of the villa is very remote, up a hill in the middle of nowhere. There are no shops, restaurants and other things in walking distance. You MUST have a car to stay there and enjoy, although the drive up there is quite dangerous as the road is very narrow with loads of curves. The other unpleasant surprise was the check out time which was 10am. The cleaner entered the property at 10:01 while we still were loading the bags in the car. It rained a lot on our arrival and made the pool very dirty so we could not use it at all because there was no one around to clean it. Overall good experience but can be better considering the price.

Amazing place, great location, clean and well furnished villa, place you can relax and enjoy stunning views of the island! Our hosts were super friendly, responsive and warm people, not on last place demonstrated personal attitude and taking care of anything we asked for. Unforgettable holiday, a week is not enough to visit and enjoy all places that worth to go. We will definitely go back again and I strongly recommend this place, the villa and hosts to anyone who is planning a trip to Corfu. You can enjoy a relaxing holiday or also traveling around the island as the location of the house is perfect for jumping to different villages and beaches in Corfu!

Lovely place

Holiday Rating: 5

This property is really lovely. It is well designed and looks good inside and out. The pool is great to have and there is really nice outdoor seating and eating places. The equipment is all there and in working order. The villa is right in the countryside and is really quiet. You will need a car to get anywhere the closest supermarket is about 4km away. The roads to the villa are small and it takes about 20 minutes to get into Corfu town. In short I m so glad we booked this place. You get a lovely villa for the same price as a hotel room.

The outside area and the interior is very nice. You can relax perfectly at the pool side and the landscape around is beautiful. Unfortunately the kitchen is very small and it�s not practical to cook or prepare food, nor to eat inside. We didn�t found cushion or something to put on the terrace furniture.. everything else was perfect and we enjoyed our stay very much.

Nice villa but some updating needed

Holiday Rating: 5

The villa is spacious with a nice outside area, although the furniture needs a thougher clean and update. The aircon is good in all areas of the villa but the small cooking hob needs either replacing or a good clean. There were limited utensils to use on the kitchen but again not fast. Some of the bathroom appliances either need to be replaced or cleaned better, as there was alot of corrusion on the showers which of one you could not use enjoyably. The villa itself is isolated and would not be recommended for anyone without a car, but that didnt impact on us as we were happy to be isolated and venture out. We didnt get a cleaner throughout our stay unfortunatley so the sheets, bath towels, tea towels, floors and bins were not replaced or cleaned which wasnt ideal. There were some positives about this villa but it was no where the standard i have stayed in before in villas in Crete and Kephalonia also booked through homeandaway.

We stayed at Villa Zoe for one week with 4 people. The house was very like the description and everything was clean and looked like pictures. We had a great time there. Although some stuff was missing at the kitchen what we had to buy (salt, oil and such). The equipment at the kitchen (glasses, plates,...) wasn't quite enough. The house is meant for the use of up to 6 people and it wouldn't be enough. It would be nice if there were 2 good big knifes to cut some vegetables for example, two big cutting boards, scissors, washing-up liquid, salt & pepper, oil & vinegar. Just the basics. We did have 2 fresh tea towels but due to the weather conditions it didn't get dry. We recommend it's better to get 4 or more. Also the toilet paper was only 2 rolls for two people for 3 days? That's not a lot. We left all the basic stuff for the next guests, hoping they enjoy it :) The shower upstairs there is a big rain shower head, but it does not work. All in all we had a great time and in case "all the small things" get fixed, we would come back to that very nice place. Thank you, we had a really great time at villa Zoe. My friend knows Zakis, he shows us the way so quick to the villa. He's a good guy. Also the cleaning women she was also really nice and she cleaned so correct. Thank you! But some points you can improve to get 100% a perfect villa Zoe

Holiday Rating: 5

4 adults stayed at Villa Zoe. The villa had all that was required to make our stay comfortable. We booked with EOS Travel through trip advisor - the company was brilliant, it provided us with all the information that we needed to make our stay pleasant. I telephoned EOS on 2 occasions whilst we were at the villa and they responded well, ensuring that our stay was stress free and comfortable. The lady cleaning the villa was Lucy - what an amazing person! She could not do enough to make our stay comfortable. We arrived at the villa very late in the evening and it would have been most welcoming to have a bottle of water in the fridge. We could have asked for this prior to departure - so as a helpful note-if you are arriving late ask for some water, coffee etc to be placed in the villa. The villa is located in a very peaceful village of St Procopi - ideally a car is required as we found little to do around the village. We did locate a wonderful, rustic cafe in the town square, the people were incredibly helpful and friendly. We spent a fair few hours in their company, chatting over a lovely coffee. It is well worth a visit if you are staying at Villa Zoe. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay - the villa is lovely, EOS is very helpful and friendly and there are absolutely no reservations in staying there again. Hopefully, next year. Thank you Trip Advisor, EOS Lucy and the fab people we had the good fortune to meet in St Propcopi.

Guter Ansatz, aber Mängel in der Umsetzung

Holiday Rating: 3

Zusammenfassende Bewertung: Villa Zoe ist für ein Ehepaar mit max. 2 Kindern geeignet, aber nicht für vier Erwachsene. Das Wohnzimmer und das obere Schlafzimmer sind gut, das Schlafzimmer unten sehr klein, der Außenbereich gut mit Verbesserungspotential und die "Küche" ist eigentlich eine Spüle und eine auf die Größe einer Mikrowelle reduzierte Koch-/Backkombination mit minimaler Ausstattung. Die Fenster im gesamten Haus haben Insektengitter. Die Klimaanlagen funktionieren sehr gut. Eine Waschmaschine gibt es nicht. Lage: Das Meer ist nicht zu sehen, da die Villa mehrere Kilometer im Landesinneren, umgeben von Bäumen, liegt. Für Fahrten über die Insel und zu den schönen Badebuchten im Westen ist die Lage aber gut geeignet, da man relativ zentral wohnt. Supermärkte/Bäcker sind relativ schnell mit dem Auto erreichbar und nach Korfu-Stadt sind es ca. 15 Minuten. Außenanlage: Die Außenanlage ist großzügig und entspricht den Erwartungen der Bilder. Mängel gab es aber bei den Möbeln, defekte Rattansessel und Schimmelflecken auf den Liegenauflagen und Stühlen. Das Vordach schützt bei Regen nicht gegen Nässe. Somit ist erklärbar, woher die Flecken kommen. Der Pool ist ok, wir mussten jedoch einige Male bei der Verwalterfirma nachhaken, da die Umwälzanlage ausging. Der in der Beschreibung erwähnte Grill ist nicht nutzbar. Untere Etage: Das Wohnzimmer ist als sehr angenehm zu bezeichnen. Das untere Schlafzimmer hat keine Ablagen und keinen Kleiderschrank im Raum, dazu ist es zu klein. Dieser befindet sich in der so genannten Küche. Das Bad mit Toilette ohne Fenster direkt neben der Küchenecke ist total deplaziert. Schranktür, Badtür und Schlafzimmertür liegen dicht zusammen und behindern sich gegenseitig.Der Wasserkocher ist fleckig und die Koch-Backkombination alt und verrostet. Die Küche ist maximal für die Zubereitung des Frühstücks geeignet. Obere Etage: Das Schlafzimmer oben ist großzügig. Im oberen Bad war die Duschstange aus der Wand gebrochen, ansonsten war es aber zweckdienlich. Das kleine Fenster mit Fliegengitter lies sich nicht öffnen.Dasselbe gilt für das Fenster im Treppenaufgang, Reinigung: Die Dame war sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend. An ihrer Arbeit gibt es nichts auszusetzen, sie hat sich die größte Mühe gegeben. Handtücher und Bettwäsche wurden alle drei Tage gewechselt, der Müll mitgenommen. Zur Poolreinigung wurde das Gelände ohne zu klingeln betreten.

Excellent Easter break

Holiday Rating: 5

Villa exactly as described, luxurious interior and excellent dining facilities outside. Children enjoyed the open space and the pool, despite the water being cold at this time of the year, they spent a lot of time in it. Kitchen has all the facilities you will need. We had an incredibly relaxing holiday in the Villa, boys also loved the wifi. Location is very good and quiet through the day, although it takes a while for the dogs on the surrounding farms to settle in the evening, one of the charms of Corfu. Nearby beaches are delightful, fantastic location to visit anywhere on the island. The cleaner and pool guy were both helpful and friendly as were the people in the nearest village and all we met in Corfu. I could not recommend EOS travel any higher and would definitely travel with them again. Their customers service is exemplary, they were in constant contact to support us, were very accommodating with us in terms of helping us out with the air traffic control strike on our flight day and promptly replied and sorted out any minor problems we had. We would highly recommend and would definitely stay in the villa again.

“The house is great, we were 4 adults and 2 children (1 and 3) it's clean, it's pratical, the swimming pool is nice. You have your own parking place. The personal is fantastic, very polite, very helpful (nd speaking english) The Eos team is more than responsive to any of your demands. The location is on a top of the hill and you are between Corfu and the beach on the west side (7 kms) which is perfect if you want to visit different beach.” The kitchen is really small, it is complicate to prepare a dinner. Their is no washing machine inside the house but they manage to organize something. The location is on the top of the hill and you better do not have motion sickness. You need to drive every where.

Great villa

Holiday Rating: 4

This villa is almost worthy of a 5 star excellent rating. The location is very quiet but within easy driving distance of great resturants and Corfu Town. The villa is a good size and would hold 5 easily. The pool is also generous in comparison to some we have had in the past. Why not 5 star then? It's just little minor things like..... A BBQ but no tools so had to make do with normal kitchen tools, no instructions for TV or AC, ok so a bit of button pressing and you can work it out but why not leave some basic idiot guides? Also no visitors book, this is typically used to share some useful local info and also people leave cards for resturants etc which always help in the early days of a visit.. No brush and dustpan so we could not have a sweep round in between what we're very good cleaning vists. Lastly a villa for 5 with 2 sun beds, a stand off every morning! Like I say minor but to be truly excellent these little things need addressing. However at the end of the day I would happily recommend this to a friend.

Agios-Prokopios-Corfu

Agios-Prokopios-Corfu

Agios Prokopios is a traditional village on a hill in central Corfu, at a height of 440 metres, just a few kms off Corfu town and the airport. It consists of approximately 400 permanent residents and a history of at least 700 years . The village was renamed lately as for centuries it was known as Psoraroi or Psorarou.
Agios Prokopios is a representative sample of the Corfiot architecture, met in the small neighbourhoods with the pure traditional features. A walk through these neighbourhoods will give you the chance to enjoy the local rural architecture.
The village is well known for its churches: Agios Vasilios, since 1511, Agia Triada and Agii Pantes, since 1745 and Agios Prokopios since the 16th century. This church was destroyed by fire early in the 19th century and was re-built in 1937.

The point of interest in Agios Prokopios is an  olive tree  at the south-eastern part of the hill  in the village, which is probably  the oldest  and the biggest olive tree on the island with a 19 mtrs trunk.

Sports and nature

Sports and natureActivities are limited and a hired car is highly recommended. Someone can experience fantastic walks through the olive grove and tiny trails towards the unspoiled hills.

Nightlife

NightlifeThere is no nightlife in Agios Prokopios. Just a short walk of ten minutes away is Kastellanoi, a bigger community with super markets, tavernas, bars and facilities which cannot be found in Agios Prokopios. In alternative a ten minutes drive will lead you to Corfu town where all types of night life can be found.

Culture & history

Culture & historyThe name is more recent than the village itself, as for more than 550 years it was known as Psoraroi or Psorarou. On 1936, the residents demanded that it is renamed, because the old name reminded of Psoriasis , and they felt offended by this. In various texts from as early as 1381, references can be found to the village as Psorarci, while in a 1497 document, it's called the "village of Psoraraioi". Just a ten minutes drive is the world wide famous Achilion Palace. The Achilleion Palace was built by Empress of Austria Elisabeth of Bavaria, also known as Sisi, in 1890, as a summer palace in the region of Gastouri. The palace was designed by Italian architect Raffaele Caritto. Ernst Herter, a famous German sculptor, was commissioned to create works inspired from Greek mythology. His famous sculpture Dying Achilles, created in Berlin in 1884 as inscribed in the statue, forms the centrepiece of the Achilleion Gardens. Achilion has been used in recent times for the European summit meetings in 1994 and in 2003 and lately it has been used as a museum with hundreds of thousands visitors annualy.
