Not bad overall. Theres no double bed, crockery & utensil are poor. The local neighbour is friendly-though when they had family staying they stayed in the room above your living room- which in noisy. Oh & the ants are a nightmare!! The positives:- Costas the owner is nice. The pool is great. The view is amazing, And apart from the crickets, Its quiet.

It was the second time wed stayed here and we love it. Its a lovely location, and the pool is brilliant. You need a car. The instructions still say to go to Solaris apartments to get the key, but the key is actually left in the door of the house, so you can save a wasted half hour or so if you read this!
The house could be better equipped eg there were four of us, but there werent four glasses or mugs. and it would be lovely if there were some basic provisions for when you arrive, as weve often had elsewhere.
But other than that, its great.

The villa is good value for money. The view over the sea from the swimming pool is breathtaking. The swimming pool is really good and kept really clean. It does however have a short shallow end so you can get out of your depth quite easily so need to be careful with children.
The villa is set up in the hills behind Kassiopi and it is semi detached with a local couple living in the other part. They are really nice and gave us fresh fruit and vegetables some mornings from their farmland.
The bedrooms are both air conditioned and the upstairs bedroom has a fantastic balcony overlooking the pool and the sea. Great to eat lunch and get some shade.
OK, now the downsides. The lounge and kitchen are dark and very tired looking so you would not want to spend much time inside. The one bathroom has a shower only, no bath which was not a problem to us. However, the shower tray is only about 30 inches square which means the moment you turn round the shower curtain moves with you and the bathroom gets soaked. This might seem a bit picky but when you are showering twice a day for 2 weeks, it gets on your nerves a bit.
The cooking utensils and cutlery need updating and there are no BBQ tools. Again maybe a bit picky but whats the point of cooking a great steak on the BBQ only to find the cutlery falls apart when you use it and no it wasnt my cooking skills at fault!!
Kostas informed us that he was having the bathroom changed next year and when this has been done and replaced the cutlery and utensils we would go back. If he also updat ed the lounge and kitchen as well we would DEFFINATELY go back.
When we did have the odd problem Kostas sorted it out immediately and checked that we were ok.
Overall, good value for money and that view will stay with us for a long long time. Thank you Kostas.

Beautiful location, a bit too far to walk into Kassiopi - car hire needed really. But lots of beautiful places to explore, or just staying at the house with the great pool is good too! The directions say you need to collect the key from Solaris in the town, but you dont - its left in the door. A little thing but it added half an hour to our journey. And also a welcome pack in the house eg bottle of water, milk, bread etc would have been a nice touch. But overall a reall great place, hopefuul well be back.

Excellent situation. Road could do with ironing out a few more bumps.
Simple groceries such as salt, pepper, oil and vinegar , washing up liquid should be present

My family and i stayed in Villa Bacchus in Corfu for 2 weeks at the end of July 2008.The villa was traditional and furnished to a good standard.Villa Bacchus was surrounded by beatiful scenery and the seaview was fantastic.
The pool was excellent especially for our two children who spent most of their holidays playing inside the pool.it was perfrect having your own private pool.
The villa was not far from the village kassiopi,where they had shops,bars and some lovely tavernas.We enjoyed our evenings in Kassiopi but never stayed too late because it was perfect and peaceful to go back to the villa to enjoy the patio surrounding the pool.
