Clive & Gabby Bignell – Corfu (Sept 2017)

Back home after a lovely holiday THANK YOU so much for organising it.  You were spot on with your choice – brilliant. I’d spent about four hours trawling villa websites and when I handed the issue over you were back to me with the answer by return! Nissaki and The Stone Cottage were delightful and Nissaki beach had the best diving we found and in crystal clear waters. Corfu is a lovely island.

Lovely Villa (The Stone Cottage) and pool near glorious Nissaki beach was set in beautiful surroundings. Also more good tavernas that you could shake an octopus at!

I booked with Travel With Jules after a frustrating website trawl to try and find a Villa. Almost immediately they came up with The Stone Cottage, Nissaki, Corfu – a complete package including a lovely cottage and pool, car and flights. We were greeted at Corfu airport by the local rep who helped us to pick up our hire car and gave us directions to the cottage. This was an easy process and the office was a very efficient back of a van. After an easy drive we arrived at The Stone Cottage and settled in, initially enjoying a few essentials that had been provided. The next day Vanessa, the local rep. appeared with a bottle of wine and gave us a briefing.

We spent the rest of the week exploring the island (it’s small enough for nothing to be too far away and big enough to be interesting). Corfu has spectacular scenery, historical sites, beautiful beaches, wonderful diving in crystal clear water and a host of lovely Tavernas with super friendly service. If you want a really different dining experience book a meal at Agni Taverna which is in a relatively inaccessible bay. Meet the boat at Nissaki ‘harbour’ (a tiny inlet with a dozen boats)) and you will be whisked the five miles by a high speed boat at dusk. You walk down the small pier into the Taverna to enjoy a lovely Greek meal and later are whisked back again under the stars – magic – could have been a scene from a James Bond movie!

I think the word ‘magic’ sums up the holiday; it really was. Save yourself the hassle of trawling the internet and book with Travel with Jules. An excellent and efficient service with more security that doing it yourself and they will find you something better. (Clive travelled with daughter Gabby in September 2017)
