What others say about us
This villa was booked for a hen party of 13 women and it exceeded all expectation. Not only is the villa beautiful, large and in an amazing location but George... read more and co also went above and beyond with the extra touches! On arrival we had banners, balloons, hen party favours and slippers as well as a fully stocked fridge and fresh fruit. They also arranged for a massage therapist to come to the villa for the bride to be which was a lovely afternoon. Can not recommend this team and this villa enough!
We booked Villa Jolie as it came very highly recommended to accommodate a large group. Our stay was just perfect, not only as the Villa wanted for nothing but our... read more hosts George and Alex were first class in their organisation and service, with nothing being too much trouble. They were very attentive and would go above and beyond to ensure our stay was as good as could be. They even arranged on our behalf our day at sea on a Private boat where we had the best time snorkelling and seeing some stunning parts of the coastline - would highly recommend this trip, you won’t be disappointed!
These guys deserve all the positive reviews they receive and we would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone.
Hope to see you again next year!
What a wonderful 2 weeks we spent in the Villa Jolie in Corfu.We were a family of 11 with ages ranging from 5 to late seventies and everything was perfect.
... read more /> It’s certainly a beautiful villa in a lovely setting with plenty of space and lots to amuse everyone, from tennis, a swimming pool, and a hot tub which surprisingly was enjoyed by all !
Roda has something for everyone, good restaurants, especially the Greek evening at Nicos and if you like waffles and pancakes, you will love Yummies across the road.
The beach is a short walk away from the villa so you couldn’t wish for a more convenient position.
We celebrated 2 birthdays while we were there and our hosts,George and Alex, organised a cake and decorated the villa as a surprise.
They really couldn’t have done more for us and organised a wonderful private sailing trip around the North East of the island which was a unanimous highlight of the holiday,
Thank you George and Alex for your kindness and for organising our holiday so perfectly and hopefully we will return again to the gorgeous island of Corfu.
Thank you for a lovely stay. The communication before our vacation even started was really great. We've been to the Nikos restaurant and did learn the Greek dance. Also the... read more weather was really good. Every day 30C. So we did make a good use of the pool at the evening we did BBQ a lot and if the temperature was cooling off we play tennis & go in the jacuzzi. We really recommend "Alexandros" near the beach for lunch. They have great food! All together we had a great holiday!
As a family of 6 adults and 4 children we stayed in Villa Jolie for 2 weeks over July / August 2021. The fact that we have already booked for... read more 2022 really tell's you all you need to know but here is a bit of detail. The fantastic service you receive from George and Alex starts as soon as you first make an enquiry. All questions are answered quickly and nothing is too much trouble for them. They can arrange airport transfers, initial grocery deliveries, first night restaurant reservations, car hire, the list goes on.
Villa Jolie is located in an ideal spot within the village of Roda. The well maintained villa has 5 bedrooms, its own tennis court, a jacuzzi, sauna, gym room and only takes a few minutes to walk to the beach, shops, restaurants etc.
The music from the Drunken Sailor bar is clearly heard on the patio in the evenings between 9pm and 11pm which we quite enjoyed but once you enter the villa all noise disappears.
The phrase, "Hidden Gem" I find is greatly over used but this really is quite unique in combining excellent facilities, excellent location and excellent service from the owners, the best I have experienced.
What a year! We never planned to come to Corfu but COVID changed all our plans. George was brilliant when booking the Villa- we couldn’t have asked for more. The... read more Villa is a real gem. It is amazing to have such facilities so close to town and yet it feels so peaceful. George and Lucy are brilliant – we could have not asked for more from our hosts .Very well equipped Villa and lots of lovely places to eat. We loved the view of the coast. Would definitely recommend hiring a boat for the day to difind the secluded bays. We would definitely consider coming back – we really miss the pool and tennis court.
We were all more than ready for holiday after lockdown, and all the stresses of living life during a pandemic, but like many others, were very apprehensive about travelling. We... read more were so glad we did! We all had Covid tests shortly before we arrived, so were as confident as we could be that we weren't bringing this horrible virus with us!
During the booking process the manager George could not have been more polite and professional. He was patient and kind with all of our concerns, we were delighted to meet him when he was there at the airport to greet us. He arranged a very efficient transfer for us. At the villa, we met the wonderful villa hostess Lucy, who came in to clean and tidy for us every other day, which suited us perfectly.
The facilities at the villa are exactly as portrayed in the photos and descriptions. It very quickly felt like a home from home for us.
Roda is literally on your doorstep. We had some great meals at Lucy's family restaurant, Nikos, which we would highly recommend, excellent food and lovely, warm, friendly service. We also loved popping across the road for lunch at Yummies. We were travelling with 4 older teens, so it was wonderful for them to have the freedom to safely escape from the parents at some of the beachside bars after dinner.
We have been very lucky to visit some wonderful places and I can honestly say that it is rare to experience top class service and facilities of this very high standard.
We certainly hope to visit again sometime in the future and have no hesitation in recommending Villa Jolie.
I have the pleasure of writing a fabulous review for the fabulous Villa Jolie at Roda. As a large extended family with ages ranging from 2-52 it more than catered... read more for all our needs.
This holiday was a godsend after so long locked down due to the COVID pandemic. We were lucky to be able to fly on 18th July for 9 wonderful days and nights. All things considered we were understandably apprehensive about even being able to fulfill the booking, due to any last minute safety protocol changes. However, George our host and owner could not have been more considerate, understanding and agreeable!!
So when we arrived on Corfu it was even more reassuring when he met us at the airport before our onward transfer, that he helped to organise, to the Villa. I cannot praise or thank him enough for his attentive and cheerful demeanour and help throughout our stay. Nothing was too much and only a call away should we have needed him. (Which we did when my daughter in law left her bag complete with passports in on the minibus!!...phew!)
Our driver, Philippas was amazing and we used his and his family business partners at Corfu Private Travel in nearby Acharavi throughout our stay. And to ferry us to trips etc and a great trip to Corfu town one evening.
On our arrival at the Villa, which was quite late at night, it was lovely to meet Lucy, our in resort host. She explained all we needed to know with regards the Villa and in resort. Also all the extra sanitary and cleaning precautions associated with these extreme times. We could not have felt more safe and welcome. Lucy and her family own and run Nikos, a fabulous Taverna in Roda. We were so fortunate that she had arranged the kitchen open so we could order a takeaway of some amazing pizzas and pasta, delivered to the Villa by her fab boys!! These were delicious and very well received by our ravenous party of couples and our teenagers!!
Lucy came to clean and change towels etc aswell, when we had requested. Understably we were happy for this every 3 days due to social distancing and reducing any possible risks to both of our families!! However, this could be more often I believe if necessary and during more 'normal' circumstances.
The Villa itself is 10/10!! Spotlessly clean with all amenities you could possibly need. The floodlit tennis court and pool and jacuzzi a particular hit!! Complete with plenty of sunbeds and even a selection of pool items for the kids!! Also the addition of the sauna and hydro shower etc. Although to be honest the weather was so warm, we didn't take advantage of the sauna!!! The rooms are well maintained along with the balconies. And the built in mosquito nets were great at night if you wanted doors open. But all air conditioned throughout made for comfortable living and sleeping. The gardens aswell deserve a mention. They are beautifully maintained with a built in sprinkler system. And the access to Netflix was great for lads, along with PS4!
The location is amazing!! Having been loyal visitors to Corfu for many years and Roda in particular I never realised it was tucked away on a private road from the footbridge by the beach. We were a party big enough to fill it and, wow, I'm so glad we did!! 2 mins walk to beach and 1 minute to supermarkets/bars and restaurants and Tavernas through a side gate which was so handy.
We were fortunate enough to attend the 1st Greek night of the season at Lucy's family Taverna at Nikos. This was thoughtfully booked by George at our request prior to arrival. It takes place every Thursday night and not to be missed!!! Not just delicious food but the essential music, dancing and plate smashing!!! Many thanks for the wonderful hospitality.
I'm not one for writing long and gushing reviews. However, we were so welcomly received and cared for at such a wonderful Villa, I felt happily compelled to do so!!! It would a travesty not to share our experience and also praise George and Lucy and their families for jobs well done!! What fabulous hosts!!
I cannot recommend the Villa Jolie enough! In terms of good impressions I think the ultimate testament has to be, that we have already booked the Villa again for next year!!! Booked with George, whilst we were still there!! I only hope we can fill it and it's available every year from now on!!
Ps. Husband said 9 3/4 out of 10, but he's a pool player and not a table tennis player!! Typical!!! However, he was more than happy with the dartboard aswell!!!
This villa is amazing! A group of 14 (12 adults, a 4 year old and a 7 month old) Stayed here for 2 weeks in september and the villa, service... read more and location was all amazing.
Communication with George the owner throughout the whole process was excellent and he always responded to my queries promptly. Lucy, the housekeeper is so lovely and friendly. We ate at her restaurant 4 times in the two weeks and the food is beautiful.
The villa exceeded expectations and is more amazing in person than on the photos. It was spacious and although there were 14 of us in the same house we didnt feel like we were on top of eachother.
It is right on the seafront and a 2 min walk away from all amenities so the location is perfect for exploring Roda and all it has to offer.
We cant wait to return!
Although we have been to Roda multiple times this is the first time we stayed at Villa Jolie and it didn’t disappoint. It looks exactly like the pictures and George... read more and the cleaner Lucy are amazing. Nothing was too much trouble for them and the house was kept to the best standards. The pool and hot tub were cleaned every other day and the house every day. We notified George that it was my uncles 50th the day we arrived and he arranged for a cake, champagne and even decorated the kitchen with banners and balloons to surprise him. He was in constant contact with us during our time to make sure everything was running smoothly and to answer any questions we had. Lucy was so friendly and helpful it was like she was part of our family. At no point were you made to feel uncomfortable. Thank you George and Lucy for an amazing stay at your villa.
We stayed at Villa Jolie for 2 weeks and can honestly say the only negative was that we had to leave to come home, George the manager arranged everything that... read more we asked him to he even welcomed us at the airport and introduced us to the driver who was transferring us to the villa, When we arrived at the Villa we were met by Lucy who we had met on previous visits to Roda when visiting her family taverna which i would also recommend.The Villa is everything if not more than we expected from reading other reviews there is ample space for all of us which consisted of 11 adults and 2 infants. we were very comfortable and enjoyed everything the villa could offer, Good size swimming pool,tennis court, hot tub,table tennis,gym room ect, Lucy came in every day and cleaned and George contacted us on several occasions to make sure we were happy with everything, we couldn't wish for better hosts and will definitely stay at Villa Jolie again, Thanks again George and Lucy for making our Holiday special.

Highly recommend Niko’s Family restaurant – especially on a plates smashing Thursday night. We discovered Yummies later on for wonderful waffles.
Other highlights include a half day boat trip down the east coast (with skipper Nikos) for snorkelling, cliff jumping and exploring the caves. We also recommend you hire a scooter to see the sights.
We had an incredible time, hope to be back!

We spent one week in this wonderful villa for a family reunion with a group of 11. Enjoyed very much the spacious luxurious villa, the tennis courts, the swimming pool... read more and the surroundings. Village center is very close through the back gate, by car the villa is accessible over a private road. very quiet surroundings but village with night live, restaurants and shops/supermarkets, bicycle/quad rentals on walking distance and very close.
Good internet/wifi and excellent daily cleaning. The beach is OK, not the best, but we enjoyed our stay very much and will return.

Just returned from an amazing holiday in Villa Jolie with the family (9 of us including a 1,2 and 4 year old).
What a fab villa! So much space in... read more and outdoors, 5 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, sauna, hot tub, table tennis table, darts board, gym, bbq, swimming pool and our own private floodlit tennis court! The grounds were beautiful with stunning flowers throughout.
So much provided in the villa including 2 proper wooden cots with bedding, high chairs, stairgate at top and bottom of stairs, pool inflatables, bath towels and some spare pool towels, tennis and table tennis rackets/bats and balls, and beach bat and ball. The canapes on arrival as well as provision of a bottle of wine, water, milk, juice and cakes also was a very lovely gesture.
The location of the villa was perfect, just on the edge of town, but felt so secluded with the treeline privacy. The short private drive goes straight down onto the sandy beach (only a 2-3 min walk). The little ones loved watching the turtles in the brook that flowed alongside the drive to the villa.
Lucy the housekeeper visited daily to clean the villa, which was a nice touch compared to other villas we have stayed in. We also met George and his brother (who own the villa) quite a few times which again showed how much they cared about the villa. Nothing was ever too much trouble for them. George even met as at arrivals at the airport to say hello and show us to our taxi.
Loads of good restaurants and shops to look in, right on the doorstep. Lucy and her family own a lovely Greek restaurant nearby which we enjoyed a very lovely meal at.
We particularly enjoyed making use of Yummies Sandwich bar which was only 1 minute walk through a side access to the villa. A supermarket is also only a 1 minute walk from the side access and open till 1am.
This is definitely one of the best villas we’ve ever stayed in, and hope to return again sometime in the future. Big thanks to George and Lucy for making our stay so enjoyable!
Amazing villa, just like the pictures show. Fantastic location, right by the shops/ tavernas but far enough away for privacy.
Five minute walk to sandy beach.
George, the owner, was... read more very helpful and I think would try and do anything for us.
Lucy came in every day to clean, a real bonus. And she welcomed us to her lovely family restaurant.
Simply put it - Villa JOLIE is a very nice villa in a super location, local restaurants, beach, and bars are less than 5 minutes walk. At the same time,... read more it is isolated enough to have the full privacy you need. Everything regards villa and its hosts was a spectacular experience!!!
We had a really good time here. It is a beautiful and peaceful place, near to everything we needed - the beach, shops, restaurants.
Staying at villa Jolie was a privilege. Meeting warm and lovely people all around Corfu and eating delicious meals- a pure pleasure.
This island is very beautiful and we hope... read more that every new generation will be able to appreciate and enjoy it for the years to come.
We thank Lucy and the staff for hospitality, take care and until next time 🙂
