I stayed at Spileo House for one week in October. The only word that comes to my head to describe that sejourn is perfection. The residence is located in a pleasant surroundings but in the same time not far away from most of the worthseeing places in Corfu which are easily reached by car. It’s cosy, clean and a full equipped kitchen in an apartment makes it even more comfortable. The view from the room is lovely and atmospheric. The owners are friendly and helpful so you don’t have to worry about any inconvenience. To sum up, if ever decide to revisit Corfu island I’ll definitely stay at Spileo.
My wife and I attended a wedding in Corfu and took in a few days holiday too, so in total we had 8 days at Spileo House (Apartment 8).
About 30 mins drive from airport, we used Value Plus to pre hire a car and from touchdown to Spileo about an hour in total. Security gates with parking.
First impression. Was fanatastic and everything you need with the initial view leaving you saying WOW!
So clean and tidy but you do need a car.
The photos we took on arrival.
Very accommodating staff led by Pauline.
It is set on a hillside and away from the hustle and bustle one expects so a great retreat but so close to enjoy but switch off when minded.
You will not be disappointed.
From the second we were met at the gated entrance to Spileo House by the lovely and extremely helpful Jayne who took us to an amazing rooftop apartment. The views never ceased to impress as was every detail in a self catering apartment.
Pauline who manages the immaculate apartment block appears like a genie whenever you need anything. The pool is perfect and is well supported by a range of sun beds and chairs. We loved every minute and found it outstanding value.
It's perfect if you want to ramble but we found a car a must. We will be returning whenever the batteries need recharging. Thank you Pauline and Jayne.
My third time in Corfu and this was the best place I have stayed. Jayne was on hand helping me arrange things by email weeks before my arrival. Spillio is only 30 mins south from the airport and very easy to find. The apartments are set back from the hustle and bustle in a gorgeous location overlooking olive and cypress trees and the ocean. The apartment itself was lovely and clean with a full oven and kitchen which was essential as I planned to cook for my vegan girlfriend. The local small supermarket (just down the hill) had plenty of gluten free products, soya milk, lentils, infact everything we needed. The pool area was fantastic and with only 20 guests at Spileo it was never at all busy. The staff at were brilliant with clean sheets and towels every 2 days and free pool towels, laundry room, detergent, a communal BBQ, and plenty of information for local boat trips, beaches etc. The location is nice and central so most places on the island can be reached within 1 hours drive. We saw plenty of wildlife in the area such as buzzards and lizards and the local coastline (Benitses to Moraitika) was brilliant for snorkelling as it was shallow and calm but plenty of rocks and fishy habitats. If you like sandy beaches with shallow warm water Issos beach is only 15 mins away to the other side of the island by car and is probably one of the best I've found. You will get brilliant sunsets here looking across the dunes and the lake (limmi korission). Our only gripe with the trip was having to come home! Thanks Jayne and co for a wonderful stay!
Due to an unfortunate set of circumstances, my wife and I arrived in Corfu without a reservation for lodging. We were very fortunate, however, to find Spileo House and the extraordinary hospitality we received from Pauline who arranged for us to stay there for nine nights. Because of our situation, we stayed in three of the apartments while we were there (both penthouses and one of the studios). All were very well-appointed, immaculately clean (Thank you, Tasia!), and extremely comfortable.
The breathtaking view of the azure waters of the Ionian sea was wonderful and we enjoyed evenings watching the sun set while enjoying a glass of the excellent local wine. Within a short walk were several great tavernas that offered a wide range of well-prepared local dishes and very reasonable prices (75 Steps and Zack's Family Taverna were our favorites).
Close by are some excellent beaches on the west side of the island which were easily accessible by car. On days when we didn't feel like being tourists, we relaxed around the gorgeous pool. What an amazing place to unwind and get away from it all.
We travel extensively and rent self-catering apartments nearly every summer and I can safely say the Spileo House is among the very best we have ever experienced. Again, many thanks to Pauline for rescuing us and for providing an extraordinary vacation experience. We'll be back!
We really enjoyed our stay at the Spileo house. It's the best place you can wish for if you want a relaxed holiday. The room was great and very clean, with comfortable beds and a great view! Restaurants are within walking distance, and have delicious Greek meals. Please keep the spileo house the way it is and we will definately visit again!!
Nous avons réservé la veille pour le lendemain. Dès le premier contact tout a été parfait ! Spileo house est un petit coin de paradis à Corfou : calme, magnifique vue, lieu sécurisé, entretien parfait du studio et de la piscine... Nous avons été accueillis merveilleusement bien par Pauline et son équipe. Nous nous sommes sentis comme à la maison et la situation de Spileo est centrale pour visiter les magnifiques coins et recoins de l'île ! Nous vous recommandons vivement Spileo house et pouvez réserver les yeux fermés !
Our week in Corfu couldn't have been more last minute....reserved saturday for departure the sunday and from the first contact everything was perfect. Spileo house is a little slice of paradise...quiet, beautiful view, safe and well maintained. We were wonderfully welcomed by Pauline and the team and felt truly at home (swimming towels provided and changed every day, gated offstreet parking, provisions such as milk coffee and water provided to start off the holiday). The house is well situated to visit the best parts of the island (you will need a vehicle). We couldn't recommend Spileo house enough...the photos and comments just don't do it justice!
