…….unless you want to be spoilt for any other villa in the future. It is easily the most comfortable and imaginative villa we (a party of five good friends) have ever had the pleasure of staying in anywhere and the views are truly amazing. It is very hard to find anything to add to the already outstanding feedbacks and testimonials that exist on Del Cielo’s own website (dreamingcorfu.com) and on
Do believe the photos of Del Cielo you see on either of the above sites because they really do show the villa as it really is - dramatic, exciting and comfortable. We all loved the layout and clever design of both the buildings and the super pool & garden; the quirkiness and personality of the furniture and fittings used throughout; the very complete inventory and, of course, the superb views both panoramic or just the smaller more intimate ‘scenes’ within the villa‘s own grounds.
Even the cleaners, gardener and pool men are friendly and efficient. They really seem to want you to enjoy your stay in this little bit of heaven. We also found Fergal, the villa’s local manager, very pleasant and helpful and he kindly and quickly supplied us (at a very reasonable price) more of the comprehensive Welcome Pack’s local red wine when we asked because we had all really enjoyed it.
Once you have mastered the zigzags of the road and the bumps in the track that lead to the villa (which also helps maintain its privacy) you will find that local shopping is easy in Ipsos and that the villa is well placed for outings to all the other parts of Corfu Island. The local tavernas provide good food at reasonable prices and if you want to go rather further afield, we can highly recommend The Eucalyptus Taverna at Ag. Stephanos (about 40 mins.) for its beautiful ambience on the beach and well above average food.
It is extremely difficult to find any fault with this wonderful property except that it will probably ruin your perception of any other holiday villas in the future because it is such a very hard act to follow!
We can provide further corroboration of the feedback provided by all of the other visitors to Del Cielo. A wonderful villa and location where, amazingly, the picture probably don't do full justice to the quality of the experience ... it is even better! The attention to detail is truly first class. The local taverna, the boat trip with lunch at Agios Stephanos and jetskiing at Dassia were wonderful but the magic of Del Cielo is an evening BBQ by the pool. Thoroughly recommended!
We spent 14 nights at the Del Cielo with family and friends. We were taken aback by the villa, the decoration and the Corfiot landscape. The villa is very well equipped, we were extremely satisfied, the housekeeping staff was excellent and always willing to help out. We were 7 adults and 3 children, which was very pleasant, the many private and common spaces allowed for all kinds of relaxation. We had many amateur chef's in our party and they were very pleased with the kitchen layout...maybe just mediocre knife collection!! The only surprise we had was that the toilet paper was not provided after the initial batch, no big deal but very surprised, especially when everyone ran out around the same time!!! Maybe we are from north America, but we had some good laughs about this...All jokes aside, we felt like royalty for a fortnight and will remember our stay forever!! Our best day out of the villa was a boat trip with Nautilus boat tours, Yakis was just amazing! Our best day at the villa was a pizza day with friends, the wood burning oven is just amazing!! The outdoor kitchen is the best kept secret in my opinion, we celebrated my birthday during our stay and the house is just ideal for entertaining!! Highly recommend.
Like the previous reviews of Del Cielo I can confirm that all their descriptions of this villa are spot on. We have just returned from Corfu, having spent a couple of wonderful weeks at Del Cielo.
Having been to Corfu many times over the previous 20 years, this is without doubt the best place we have stayed at, even though other villas have been more expensive!!
You won't be disappointed.
We are just back from a family trip to delCielo to celebrate a birthday. All the comments about this villa are true - just not quite enthusiastic enough! It is beautifully sited, wonderfully stylish, superbly equipped, private, quiet, and within strolling distance of a great taverna and easy driving distance of innumerable beaches. We were a couple of years planning our trip and the owners, Jane and Graham were consistently helpful and patient - full of good tips and ideas and anxious to ensure that everything went smoothly - it did! Go there - you won't do better.
