We recently spend some marvellous days at Anna Pension, Liapades, and we truly enjoyed this place ! And there are indeed several reasons for this enjoyment.
First of all there is the incredible setting ! It was our third visit to Corfu and we experienced the coastline to be at its most splendid in the area of Paleokastritsa-Liapades. Anna Pension fully benefits of this amazing coastal area ! It is located slightly uphill, offering magnificent views, and yet it is not far at all from Liapades beach. In less than 5 minutes you’ll be right in the Ionian Sea !
Secondly, the accommodation itself is just great ! For those looking for recent interior design and grand luxury, it may not be that appealing, yet it offers all you need in a comfortable holiday stay. Moreover, the value for money is excellent (we payed 40 euro per night for a maisonette through Booking.com, but the accommodation can also be booked directly with the owners) !
Anna Pension consists of 3 so-called “maisonettes” and 2 larger apartments.
The maisonettes are smaller, mezzanine-type apartments, yet comfortable enough to accommodate 3 people. On the upper floor they have a very nice and comfortable double bed. On the ground floor you’ll find a single bed and a large sofa. The bathroom is simple but well appointed and clean, with a toilet, bidet, wash basin and small shower-bath. The kitchen is rather small and consists of two electric cooking plates, a sink and a decent fridge.
There is also a 2-bedroom apartment with 2 bathrooms and 1 kitchen, and a 3-bedroom apartment (one bedroom with double bed is very nice and opening to a great sea view !) with a small kitchen and only 1 bathroom (rather small). All 5 apartments have A/C.
Every unit has its own balcony, which is quite pleasant, but even better is the garden in front of the apartments, which offers just amazing views of the sea and the coastline (that’s what we first saw on Anna Pension’s website, and made us decide to choose this place) ! The atmosphere is quiet (we stayed in June) and we enjoyed many hours reading and having a beer or a local wine, or just enjoying the indescribable view…
Is there any downsides to this accommodation ? Yes, but they are only minor issues. E.g. the television is rather small and its reception quite poor, but who cares about this ? The same goes for the rather poor mobile reception, due to the location in a mountainous area. On the other hand, the wifi was very good ! If you want total privacy, this will not be your first choice, but it never was a problem for us. On the contrary, it was rather pleasant to meet other people who also enjoyed this place. Also, Anna Pension does not have its own pool, but the nearby Cricketer Bar pool can be used free of charge. By the way, the Cricketer offers very decent and affordable food !
All in all, the place itself was a very worthwhile discovery ! But the true gem are the two owners, Anna and Kostas ! Dedicated and yet discrete, they will never impose themselves upon you, but they will kindly do everything to make your stay a memorable one. Two marvellous people !
The great place, its very kind hosts, and the excellent value for money, were enough reasons to definitely recommend Anna Pension and to give it a maximum score !
