Booking started with a very kind email-conversation with Spiros and was very helpful for arranging logistic details before the journey started. No question was left unanswered. We came with 2 kids (4 and 10) and were directly picked up by a taxi at the airport (organized by Spiros). At the house we had a warm welcome by Spiros and his very kind wife showing us the rooms and the garden. We found a wonderful little beach (small stones, no sand) a 3 min walk downstairs the house, that was not so busy. The view from the terrace is spectacular and the ocean was clean and well temperatures. We had the opportunity to also use a swimming pool 2 min walk from the house in a nice hotel (good snacks!). End of July and August was very, very hot (even Spiros and his wife said so!!), so it was great to have a well functioning air condition in the bedrooms! For the night time we were happy to have moquito nets, because of the kids. All in all a very relaxing holiday in a wonderful placed house and a very individual and friendly care by Spiros and his wife. Thanks a lot and for the best olive oil ever!
Just spent a week here. Talk to Spiros the owner before you leave and he will arrange taxi transfer from the airport. (40euros sept 2012). Cheaper than getting a taxi at the airport. He is also there to greet you and show you around. A very nice and helpful person. The villa is basic, very clean and has stunning views and lovely gardens and air conditioning in the bedrooms. It's quite close to other villas and hotels but doesn't feel like it due to the layout of the land and the trees. It almost felt like a little house in an olive grove. We mostly ate out but I did manage to produce kebabs for the BBQ (provided) and saute potatoes on the stove quite easily. Sitting on the terrace in the evenings was bliss. 45 steps up to the path leading to the villa so not really for anyone with mobility issues. I'm nearly 60 and managed without problems. Leave the lights on when you go out and there is no problem seeing on the way back. Couple of mini markets close by and the bus stop into Corfu town is at the bottom of the steps across the road. Paleo is lovely. Lots of beaches, tavernas and restaurants to suit all tastes. Cabaret and kareoke nights if you want them. The monastry is lovely. Wonderful walk up to Lakones through the trees at the back of the villa. All in all I would thoroughly recommend Villa Thekli.
Villa Thekli is a nice and private place. We stayed two weeks in July 2012 with our two kids (4J/6J). We liked the nice garden with old olive trees very much. From the terrace you have a beautiful view to the see and the cost line. Spiros and his wife are very kind people. We hope, we will be back soon. Greetings from Berlin.
