Villa Edem is set in the heart of Kassiopi and has a stunning view of the harbour. It is well kept and Alexandra, the thoughtful owner, has ensured that a wide range of utensils and facilities are provided for a perfect holiday. She even brought across a box of toys for my baby granddaughter to play with whilst we were staying at the villa.
We have visited this corner of north east Corfu on five occasions and we always have a wonderful break. Although Villa Edem is located at the very end of a narrow and steep pathway and is very quiet during the day, we found it rather noisy at night with music from bars continuing until the early hours. It's a shame that in recent years, the bar owners in Kassiopi feel that they need to cater for this market when there are many such establishments in the south of the island. It would be lovely if Kassiopi could maintain its traditional appeal for those who wish to holiday in true Corfiot style. However, it must be stated that Alexandra is a great host and her villa is a credit to her. Thank you, Alexandra.
The Villa is well located in Kassiopi, close to the bars and restaurants but far enough away to be peaceful. It looks down the hill into the harbour, with all the activity of boats and yachts going backwards and forwards.
The Villa itself is well kitted out, it seems lots of the holiday stays are for several weeks or more, and comfortable. The two bedrooms are air conditioned but not the other rooms, although the two units can keep the whole villa cool.
Alexandra was helpful throughout, always responding quickly to emails. At the end of our holiday arranged our taxi transfer to the airport and come down to the Villa to make sure the taxi arrived and we got off without a hitch.

Villa Edem is a beautiful, well-appointed and well equipped house with a lovely view of the harbour and the bay. There are two balconies with dining facilities and a patio space below. Also a lovely garden with a large lemon tree. The villa is well situated, with the local beaches, the town's many good restaurants and shops all within walking distance. The owner's mother comes to clean regularly and changes the bed linen. We found it a lovely relaxing place to stay and we'd like to go back again.
