Cook Service

At many villas, it is possible to request the services of a cook and it is necassary to book well in advance to secure the cook service. Local cooks are rarely trained to professional standards and may range from the villa maid doubling up, to good local cooks. Cooking usually consists of simple traditional food, either prepared in the villa or brought from home. Usually they will prepare one main meal a day, and either stay and assist with laying/clearing up, or leave it depending on time and family commitments, charging the appropriate hourly rate. In some areas a catering delivery service of prepared meals is available, and is ideal for those who wish to entertain a few times during their holiday. Please ask your Travel Expert for further details.

Note: Once booked, it is not possible to cancel the services of the cook, who may have turned down alternative employment. Local cooks can also be unreliable or become ill, and as CV Villas offers contact with the cooks purely as a service to our clients we cannot accept responsibility if a cook becomes unavailable or is considered unsuitable. If a booking is conditional upon a cook being provided, clients should make their own arrangements, to include travel, accommodation and transport

transfers

Our holiday prices to Paxos include return taxi or minibus transfers from Corfu Airport to Corfu Port and onward return transfer to Gaios Port, Paxos. Onwards transfers from Paxos port are not included.

Customers who arrive in Corfu on an early flight are met at the airport by a member of the CV Villas Airport Team and transferred to the Port by taxi or mini-bus.  

On arrival at the Port, customers are met by another CV Villas Representative who gives customers tickets and directs them to the boat or hydrofoil. If customers arrive early then they will have to keep luggage with them if they choose to walk into Corfu Town as there is currently no left luggage area in operation.

The CV Villas Representative at the port comes back to the airport to meet the CV Villas flight having seen off the the earlier boat to Paxos.

Customers arriving on the CV Villas flight are then transferred to the Port in a mini-bus accompanied by the CV Airport Representative.  She distributes tickets to customers and directs them to the hydrofoil or ferry.

Customers who arrive on evening flights and stay in a hotel overnight are either given their tickets on arrival at the airport by a CV Representative or by the driver of the mini bus when picked up in the morning for their transfer to the Port.

Customers arriving on other days, who have pre-booked transfers with CV Villas are given their tickets on arrival or on their transfer in the morning from the hotel by the mini bus driver.

CV Villas’ customers who arrive on other days and have not booked any transfers with CV Villas pick their tickets up from the captain of the hydrofoil or ferry.

Hydrofoil or ferry tickets for customers staying in Corfu for the first week and then travelling on to Paxos for their second week, tickets are either delivered to the villa by the CV Villa Representative or given to them at the Port by the CV Airport Representative, if travelling on a Monday.

On departure from Paxos
Guests who arrive from Paxos in Corfu in the morning and are not travelling until later can leave their luggage at left luggage facility and go for a walk in Corfu Town.  The CV Villas Representative will advise them of transfer times to the airport and will advise them to return at least 15 minutes before transfer time.

If customers arrive later in the day, a taxi or mini bus will be waiting to transfer them to the airport.

If  guests are on an earlier flight they will be sent directly to the airport by transfer bus or taxi, which will be waiting for them on their arrival from Paxos. Guests are met on arrival at airport by a member of the CV Villas Airport Team, and directed to their check in desks.

  • Transfers by taxi or minibus are based on the accommodation rental commencement and termination date as specified on the invoice. Taxi transfers based on a maximum of four persons sharing, not including infants.
  • Transfers by public ferry or hydrofoil are subject to local timetables and conditions and are often not finalised until early May each year, and subject to change on a regular, almost monthly, basis.
