“Wonderful villa, stunning gardens perfect location.”
Reviewed 7 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We stayed in this lovely villa at the end March with our 2 children aged 4 and 6. It was the pefect base for explorng the island with a wonderful home away from home to return to afterwards. The grounds to the Villa are just stunning and as soon as my children were up and dressed every day they were out the door exploring the garden which they loved! Being able to pick the fruit from the trees was a real high light along with the fairies that came out at night ( fireflies but my 6 year old is convinced they were fairies). Our hosts were very welcoming and did all they could to make sure we were comfortable and well looked after.

I was slightly apprehensive about visiting this time of year as it is out of season but for us it was perfect the Island is just waking up and coming to life the flowers and trees are in bloom and we had whole beachs to our selves! Athough lots of tavernas are shut we found a couple open near by and lots in corfu town. We mainly cooked for ourselves using the well equipped kitchen and outside bbq.

What ever time of year you come to corfu and stay in this wonderful cottage you won't be disapointed!

“Wonderful place, very friendly hosts”
Reviewed 20 March 2016 for a stay in October 2015

We a Family with a 6 year old boy stayed in this really beautyfull place for two weeks in October. The house and the surrounding garden is really a small paradise. The hosts Vasso and Alekos are verry welcoming. Vatos is some kilometer from the see but it's a good location to explore the whole island. The next beach is about 15 minutes by car but our absolute favorite were the bays on the Afionas peninsula. One of the best places to have dinner and enjoy sundowner is nearby Kaisers Throne. Despite from two days with some rain the weather was perfect to wether do sightseeing as although enjoy the beaches and the sea. We had a greate time and absolutely can recomend this place.

“A Property in Paradise”
Reviewed 16 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015
1
person found this review helpful

Before going to Corfu, I made a lot of researches to find a suitable home for me and my family and the best accommodation I found was Riza. When I read the reviews on Riza, I thought that this can't be true! But now, after staying at this property, I know why people gave great reviews.
The property itself is a part of paradise. It is the best place for relaxing and enjoy the nature of Corfu. Everything you need you will find at Riza plus the fresh fruits and vegetables which you can enjoy for free from the amazing and beautiful garden as well as the two friendly dogs. It is a true home away from home. The location of Riza is perfect as it is close to everything. It is also a home which you can enjoy in all the seasons because of the facilities it has. The house in reality is a lot better than the pictures.
Apart from the property itself, the best thing about Riza is the owners, Vasso and Alekos. They are the most amazing people I ever met in a holiday. They are very friendly, helpful and they have the best hospitality. They made us feel that we were in our homeland. They invited us to a great traditional festival in the town which was the best part of our trip.
No words can describe how grateful I was to meet these two great people. I would definitely go back one day to the stunning island of Corfu and stay in the breathtaking property Riza Cottage.
If you really want to have an exceptional holiday in Corfu, then you have to choose Riza!

“Beautiful cottage and garden in an unspoilt part of the island”
Reviewed 30 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

What an amazing place! We picked this holiday rental having read the brilliant reviews on Tripadvisor, and like for others it surpassed our expectations.

The house is spacious, tastefully decorated and very well-equipped so that it feels like a home from home. The hosts, Vasso and Alekos, are absolutely charming and welcoming. the garden is sublime: in May it was filled with flowers and the wonderful scent of blossoms, with fireflies every evening as a bonus! It is a joy to sit in the dappled shade on the sun lounger or hammock reading and enjoying the rural tranquillity.

The location is excellent for exploring any part of Corfu. It is only a 20 minute drive to charming Corfu Old Town (a World Heritage Site) and we went on easy day trips to the mountainous North East and unspoilt South West coast of the island. It is also close to some gorgeous beaches, including Myrtiotissa which is a 30-40 minute walk down the mountain (this was Gerald Durrall's favourite beach). We also loved watching the sunset from the Kaiser's Throne in Pelekas, a short drive from the cottage.

We thoroughly recommend this holiday rental and are sure you will enjoy staying there and meeting the lovely owners.

“Wonderful and Magical Place!”
Reviewed 20 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

After doing a lot of research, we found and selected Riza Stone cottage, in part because of the reviews here. Although the pictures and reviews were excellent, when arriving there, our breath was taken away by the sheer beauty of the the house and it's surroundings!

After meeting Vasso, our wonderful host, nearby, she took us home and showed us around. She was warm, friendly and knowledgable. It was clear that she was bringing us to a place that was important to her, that she and her husband, Aleco, had spent years building and refining. The house is beautiful, warm, with wonderful views and garden. It was everything and more than we were expecting ! My wife and I came with 2 teenage daughters who slept in the second bedroom upstairs. All of us were able to find their favorite spot for reading, resting, playing guitar, etc.

The nearby village of Vatos is beautiful and has 2 attractions: an old 13th century Church and Spiros 97 taverna where we received the loving care of Maria who fed us and made sure we received the best service possible.

In Short- I cannot exaggerate how much we enjoyed ourselved, how beauriful and comfortabke the Riza chouse is and how pleasant and caring Vasso was. I warmly reccomend this house! I am already jealous of other people going there :-)
