Elysium Self Catering Apartments Corfu

Self Catering Apartments, Corfu


This really was a 5 star holiday right from the start. The airport pick up was invaluable and instantly took away the stress of finding your own way. The luxury apartment was fully kitted out. We had everything we needed and more. The build quality and the furnishings were second to none. This place has the perfect combination of an authentic Greek look and feel, with a British build quality and finish. Gemma and Des have worked incredibly hard to expel the normal experiences I had come to expect from the average holiday (i.e. poor showers, faulty hardware, and overdue maintenance!). The bathroom was better than most back home, everything worked as it should, and I didn't see a single thing out of place the whole time I was there! The view was incredibly impressive, and as nice as the pictures look on the website, they don't do it justice. Gemma and Des were always on hand and made it their mission to please, in a chilled and non-intrusive way. If only everyone put that kind of effort into customer service! I would recommend the Elysium to anyone and everyone. Seriously, stop your searching and just book it!

We enjoyed a very relaxing week in this beautiful apartment. Gemma and Des have lovingly created a very rare commodity - a holiday apartment with the comforts of home - and with the added bonus of those wonderful coastal views. A highly recommended destination for the discerning traveler.

From the moment we walked into the arrivals hall at Corfu airport to see our name on Des’s board, we had a brilliant two weeks in Elysium. The apartment is exactly as described and probably one of the nicest places we’ve stayed in. The quality is superb, the views are stunning and Gemma and Des looked after us really well. (They are also a mine of info. about the island). The apartment is just two minutes walk from the bus stop into Corfu town, there are several bars and supermarkets close by and a choice of beaches to enjoy. Would we recommend Elysium to family and friends - absolutely and we already have. Thanks again to Gemma and Des and their splendid attention to detail.

The apartment really is home from home everything you need for the most relaxing of holidays. We could not fault the property it simply had that five star feeling. The fitted kitchen was exceptional and although we did not spend a lot of time cooking, the facilities were first class. Our hosts kept the apartment spotless, it is well maintained and the garden area, especially the view, have to be seen.
Des and Gemma, our hosts, felt like one of the family and their hard work and customer care deserves the highest praise.

We stayed in the apartment late July when the weather was scorching - the air conditioning was very welcome! The apartment may be up a steep slope and lots of stairs but I wouldn't let that put you off, we have never stayed anywhere better in Europe. The apartment was incredibly clean and the garden was really well-maintained and green! The hosts were helpful, nothing was too much for them. Paleokastritsa is a fantastic location that should not be missed. We didn't hire a car and stayed in the resort for the entire week but were not bored at all. The apartment is so spacious you don't feel the need to be out of it all day like some small hotel rooms make you feel. We would do it again in a heartbeat.

The Elysium Apartments are aptly named, for this truly is a place of paradise! The accommodations are wonderful, and I have never before seen such an efficient use of space in a studio apartment. There was ample storage for our clothes and other belongings, and the living space extends right out onto the balcony with a table and two chairs. We were able to prepare meals in our studio whenever we wanted to, and then enjoy them on the balcony while taking in the spectacular views of the bay. That being said, it was also easy for us to eat out as often as we liked, with all the delightful tavernas within walking distance and all so reasonably priced. We enjoyed and appreciated the great amount of privacy we had here at the Elysium apartments. The setting is peaceful, idyllic and enchanting; the perfect place to relax and rejuvenate. Aside from the comfortable accommodations, the tranquil setting and the breathtaking views, one of the nicest aspects of our holiday was meeting our hosts, Gemma and Des. They are one of the loveliest couples we have met in all our travels, and they are truly committed to the comfort of their guests. They were always available to answer questions or offer recommendations, yet at the same time, they respected our privacy and independence. They maintain their property in pristine condition, and everything is always spic-and-span.

We've just spent two weeks at the Elysium and it has more than exceeded our expectations. The descriptions on the website are factually accurate but there is a magic about this place which is impossible to convey. If you want to experience some extraordinary aspects of nature then come here - shooting stars, dolphins, fireflies, and lightning storms at sea, beautiful fish and sea life when snorkeling - we saw it all this fortnight. The studio apartments are small but practical, very clean and provide everything you could need. Des and Gemma are exceptional hosts - they know Paleokastritsa intimately, nothing is too much trouble for them, they are friendly and helpful without being over pushy and they have the highest standards.

The studio apartments are fabulous; we stayed there for a week and would definitely go back. The description provided is accurate if not a little modest. The location is great because, you are within walking distance of everything you need, from bus stops to grocery shops. The views from the communal garden at the apartments are breathtaking. The owners Des & Gemma were so friendly and so helpful, they really helped us get the most from our holiday. Paleokastritsa is a really great place to stay, it is a very picturesque and pretty part of the world, and there are lots of great restaurants and bars as well as beautiful beaches.

I have travelled all over the world and rarely have I met more hospitable and helpful hosts than Gemma and Des. As for the immaculate accommodation and breathtaking surroundings it's all you need. And all you'll ever need. Elysium could not come with a warmer recommendation.

Dear Des and Gemma ,
The stairs; breathtaking,
The view; earthshaking.
We have not seen a lot of Corfu,
This is all we needed mind you.
The apartment felt like home,
Your hospitality seldom known.
Continue to be as you are,
We'll think of you from afar.
