Taxi fares from Corfu Airport to the villas in the south west cost up to €50 (£40). A taxi can carry a maximum of 4 passengers (please don’t turn up with 5 plus luggage and ask us to “squeeze you in” as this contravenes the licensing laws and your driver would be subject to prosecution if stopped). We can book a taxi for you, in advance, if you provide us with your flight details (time of arrival etc., exact flight number). We always use our old friends, Haris, Kostas or Nikos, who:
will be there waiting for you on arrival (and will check with the airport beforehand, to make sure your flight is not delayed)
will not overcharge you (prices set by Greek National Tourist Organisation)
speak English
know the way to the villas with their eyes shut!
will hand you the keys to the house, if a member of the family can’t get to the airport to greet you in person
will happily give you their business card so that you can book them for your return to the airport on the day of departure.
Alternatively, if you are thinking of renting a car anyway, you could have it waiting for you at the airport (this is not an especially good idea if you will be taking a night flight, as your first journey to the villas could be difficult in the dark and the car hire offices may well be closed). If you were planning to have a car for, let’s say, just part of your holiday, we would strongly advise getting it to coincide with your departure date - that way, you can relax and get to check in with plenty of time to spare and just leave the car at the airport.
Whilst we endeavour to be as flexible with our guests’ stay as possible, we must ask that you vacate your villa by noon on the day of your departure so that the housekeeper can get the property ready for the next holidaymakers. If you do not fly off the island until late that evening, speak with Nico and we will try to arrange for you to leave your suitcases somewhere safe whilst you have that final swim.
We would be grateful if you could arrange to take a daytime flight to Corfu if possible – not only will it be much easier for us to come and welcome you at the airport but, for your own sakes, you will have a much less stressful and wearying time of it if you do not have to travel through the night.
If your arrival and departure are in the middle of the night, some villa owners may ask for a small additional fee for you to remain in the property until you leave for the airport on the final day (i.e. if your stay is going into an extra day). We will advise you on this further at booking.
