Villa del Cielo has been featured in a captivating travel blog “The time we went to Corfu, Greece” by Helene Grosjean.
Helene and Tom were on a world back-pack tour, and had been invited to join their family staying at Del Cielo for a 40th birthday celebration. She writes:
“we had only one goal: to get to Corfu for mid-July to spend some quality family time at the now infamous Del Cielo, the luxury villa where everyone else was staying perched atop a mountain
Helene captures the very essence Corfu in her insightful glimpse of the island. Through her eyes it is easy to see why Corfu is a favourite holiday destination. Diverse, fascinating and beautiful is has something for everyone, every age, every mood .
The joy and laughter the family had at Del Cielo is easy to picture:
“We roasted a whole lamb on a spit. There was a full spread of delicious home cooked Greek food… seemingly unlimited supply of wine, beer, and Ouzo…then the guitars came out for a little bit of traditional music, and of course there was some dancing… we had a genuine local experience, very far removed from anything touristy, which is ultimately what all backpackers strive to find on the road.”
