My husband, young son and I stayed for 10 nights and had a wonderful time. The house is a beautiful 250 year old Greek ‘farm house’ but finished to Avery high standard inside. It was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The house is away from other premises so is blissfully peaceful and private. The house is surrounded by an olive grove and wildflower meadow - late Spring is a lovely time to go. The owners, Loukia and Spiros are very welcoming, helpful and kind. They had stocked the fridge and cupboards with homemade and local produce to last us for our first day or so - we were grateful that we didn’t have to dash out to do a food shop after a long journey. They provided toys for the beach for our son which was a thoughtful touch. Very conveniently the nearest supermarket is only a few miles down the road and the local sandy beach (10 minute drive) was almost deserted in May - perfect for us. I would highly recommend a stay at the house.
We have spent one week in the Roumanades estate with two kids. The estate is located in the middle of the narrowest part of Corfu island, therefore both sandy and pebbly beaches are accessible (10 minutes by car). Also shops and restos are easily accessible with a short ride. The estate itself is really picturesque surrounded by olive trees with a Tuscany style house in the middle. Both the inside and the outside of the house is kept authentic with the highest attention to detail. Everything is available which you would need for an island holiday. Definitely the nicest part of all the estate is the porch where the leaves provide shadow for those who want to enjoy relaxation. Finally we should not forget the hospitality of the owners, Loukia and Spiros and the warm welcome on their side. In bref, everything was perfect, nothing was missing to have an unforgettable holiday. We will definitely return!
I had read the previous reviews of guests who had stayed at Roumanades and was impressed and looking forward to our stay there. But as my title says they exceeding my expectations. The house was extremely comfortable, very well equipped and the starter pack much more than comprehensive. This was our first trip to Corfu and we planned to explore but as previous guests found we just stayed put and enjoyed the ambience of Roumanades.
The house is conviently located for beaches and we would recommend the Isos beach and Taverna Ammolofos, which is route to the beach.
Many thanks for all your efforts Loukia and Spiros.
We stayed at the Roumanades Estate and it was quite exceptional. The house is quite beautiful - surrounded by olive groves, fruit trees and nature. It is in a very quiet location. Inside the house is super comfortable and unpretentious. Lovely old furniture, a wonderful and enormous bathroom, loads of drawer and cupboard space and a well equipped kitchen. Thank you to Loukia and Spiros for the most fabulous welcome; the delicious cake; the jams and more - plus the opportunity to stay in a truly unique and special place. It was magical and we all loved it. Thank you!
