About Rob and Jogien Janssen

We are a dutch couple, in our 40's, and have always liked to go to Greece during holidays. In the future we like to live there (semi-)permanent.

Some years ago, we started looking for a house. Our choice was Corfu, because its size, its green vegetation and the fact that also in wintertime Corfu town is a happening city. Two years after we started our search and after visiting lots of properties, we saw artist ompressions of Villa Fisi. We fall in love with the plans directly and decided to buy. Now the house is finally ready, it is even nicer than we imagined it to be.

It really feels like home for us.

Rob and Jogien Janssen purchased this villa in 2011

Why Rob and Jogien Janssen chose Corfu

We very much like the area. It is quiet but also close to Gouvia, Corfu town, etc. Also we like the Greek people, and their way of living. We wanted to have a house surrounded by Greeks and not in a Dutch or British compound. Every time we land on Corfu, it feels like coming home.

We hope we can make you feel at home also.

What makes this villa unique

Since our house is built for us to live there in the future, we used very high quality building materials and furniture.

Unlike most of the properties, our house has a very modern style. The house is located in a quiet area but on walking distance (10 minutes on a flat road) to restaurants, bars, supermarket, bus stop etc. You can use our pool, as well as our bikes.

great house

  • 5 of 5

The house was all we expected and even better. Lots of comfort and luxurity and very completely equiped. Good boxspringbeds. Complete kitchen. Nice pool and comfortable outdoor chairs. Close to Gouvia, supermarkets nearby, and a great location to visit the rest of Corfu. We enjoyed staying here very much. The owners are very friendly, and provide all information you ask for. We absolutely recommend this house to anyone.

Wonderful Modern Contemporary Villa Fisi

  • 5 of 5

We just came back from a really wonderful relaxing 10 night stay in Villla Fisi. The villa is as advertisied, actually it's even better and more spacious than advertised on the website. We hired a car for the whole duration of our stay so we can explore the rest of the island in between sunbathing and relaxing in the villa. It's situated in a quiet and very private location and the outdoor living area is just brilliant! Sun beds, swimming pool, lounge chairs,hammock, table tennis, trampoline, dining table and chairs and of course the essential BBQ. I've got to say it's the BEST villa our family has stayed in! The owners have been very helpful and considerate from the start of booking to the last day when we requested a late checkout....so I would like to take this opportunity to say 'thank you' 😊

excellent relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We are 2 single women in our 50's, we had a lovely relaxing 2 week holiday at Villa Fisi. The villa and pool were everything we could have wished for and the photos don't really do it justice. The villa was spotless and plenty of room for a family. We ate out most nights in Gouvia which was a pleasant 10 minute stroll and it was lovely to relax in the garden with a nightcap on our return. On the nights we stayed in and cooked, we found that the kitchen provided all the utensils we needed and more. The pool was cleaned every other day, which we haven't found in other villas. The villa was cleaned mid stay and the bedding and towels changed.

When we arrived there was a lovely welcome pack, which was most appreciated.

The owners couldn't have been more helpful, even providing extra mirrors in the bedrooms ( not that we are vain!) , they also provided excellent directions from and to the airport, which was invaluable as my sat navigation didn't work!

As mentioned in previous reviews there are a few cats about but if you use the small water spray provided they soon move.

We had an excellent holiday and would definitely recommend this villa to our friends and we hope to return sometime in the future

A peaceful, modern villa

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful stay in this beautiful villa with our 4 children.

Everything was very well maintained, including the pool which was of a decent size. The kitchen was equipped to a high standard and the barbecue facilities meant that we enjoyed most meals outside by the pool.

There were shops and restaurants within walking or cycling distance, which meant we didn't need to hire a car. Instead we enjoyed exploring the island by boat or local bus.

The location and accommodation suited everyone from our youngest who is 10, our teenagers and us- not always easy to find!

Communication with the owners was efficient and pleasant.

We are hoping to return next year to Villa Fisi and would very happily recommend it to others.

Even better than the pictures

  • 5 of 5

From the moment you arrive at Villa Fisi you know you have made a good decision. All of the facilities are a credit to the owners who have opted for quality in all things from the kitchen, furnishings, showers and pool furniture. Within walking distance of the villa is a well stocked supermarket and the resort of Gouvia with its numerous bars and restaurants. The booking process and information supplied by the owner Jogien made the whole process stress free. It is a testament to just how good this villa is that we found ourselves planning a return visit on leaving.

Complete getaway & relaxation location

  • 5 of 5

The villa was all that is described and lived up to all our expectations. We traveled as a family of 6 (4 adults and 2 teenage boys) and the accommodation size and layout was perfect, plenty of room to relax and chill.

The location is ideal as you are reasonably secluded and out of the way but not so far away from the two local towns that you feel isolated. We walked to Gouvia in about 10-15 mins where we found the selection of restaurants and bars to be enough to give you a good choice and the beach areas and water sports a fun alternative to the tranquility of the villa.

Thoroughly recommend and trip on the Madelena boat excursion, found in the high street at Gouvia, and a trip to the old town. The boys also enjoyed a good day at the water park. The villa is well situated to do all of the above and only use taxis, they are about 20/30 euros to the town and the park and very easy to use, you can phone from the villa or get one from Gouvia. There are a few cats in the villa area but we didn't find them to be much of a problem as we invested in water pistol as a gentle deterrent, they soon learn !

If you are looking for relaxation in style with the opportunity of variety if you want it, then this is the place for you .
