Cook Service

We appreciate that our guests may wish to avail themselves of the services of a cook whilst on holiday, allowing themselves the luxury of not having to prepare a meal, but at the same time not having to drive back from a restaurant in the dark and being able to enjoy a few drinks! Suitable villas are shown as “Cook Service on request”. Please note the following:-

Local Cooks* A few local English speaking cooks resident in Corfu can be booked subject to availability. Whilst they are enthusiastic and competent, they (usually) do not have the formal training and experience that some of our guests may expect. They are most appreciated when booked for large family groups who view the time consuming chores of shopping, food preparation, and general clearing up, laying tables etc more important than haute cuisine! However, all local cooks have a good repertoire of menus, and are more than pleased to assist clients ensuring they have a relaxing holiday.

Guests who have requested cook service are sent a shopping list in advance of their holiday, and requested food items will be delivered to the property for guests’ arrival. Of course, there is always the option to eat out on the day of arrival and shop locally. Shops tend to open later during the season.

Few villas are equipped for sophisticated entertaining, especially in Greek owned villas. In Corfu we can supply extra equipment if guests are planning to do a lot of entertaining. Please do discuss your requirements with your Travel Expert on booking.

Cost per week: to include shopping, breakfast and 1 meal a day, 6 days per week (cook has own car and accommodation).

All food and drink expenses are payable locally and must be paid for before departure from the villa.

transfers

Ideal for those guests who would prefer to collect their car at the villa and not drive from the airport, or for those staying at a villa where car hire is not essential, CV Villas are delighted to offer transfers from the airport or port of arrival to your villa or hotel.

Transfers are also ideal for bookings where some guests are arriving at different times or days to the main party and saves an extra journey back to the airport to pick up. Transfers are available on request only, at an additional charge ( see below).
