Gem Rosa overlooks Agios Stefanos bay and is within walking distance of Agios Stefanos and Arillas. Both villages have a lovely beach and a good selection of shops, bars, and tavernas. The villa's address is Arillas but it is actually is on the edge of Agios Stefanos village.
Gem Rosa is ideal for families and friends wanting spacious, modern accommodation. The villa is set in a peaceful location where you can relax and enjoy the views of the sea, the village and the olive trees, and at night time watch the sunset.
The villa has a large open- plan kitchen and living room opening onto a large covered balcony with a table and chairs which is perfect for outdoor dining.
The villa has 3 bedrooms but in the low season we may be able to offer you a reduce price for under occupancy. All 3 bedrooms have interrupted sea-views so no arguments about who gets the view.
The accommodation is as follows:
Bedroom1 has 2 large single beds
Bedroom 2 has a double bed
Bedroom 3 has a king-size bed, en-suite bathroom with a shower, and a private balcony
Bedroom 1 and 2 share a private balcony
All bedrooms have fitted wardrobes, insect nets and air conditioning.
The kitchen has a full size cooker, fridge freezer and microwave, and a washing machine is available.
We provide all bedding and towels but please bring your own beach towels.
Wi-Fi is available
The village is just a short walk from the villa but as we are set in a hill we recommend car-hire for the less-mobile and those with young children in a pushchair.
As the villa is set in 1 acre of land there is plenty of parking space.
The villa is owned by Waine, Debbie and their family.
Since the early eighties we have spent our holidays in Corfu as we love the beautiful scenery, friendly people and the Greek way of life. In 2003 we found some land in "our" village which met our criteria of having a sea-view and be within walking distance of a beach and village. We designed the villa ourselves to exploit the fabulous view and ensured that each bedroom has a sea view.
We live and work in the UK but spend our holidays at our villa in Corfu.
We want you to make the right decision about your holiday, so please don't hesitate and contact us if you need to know anything else about the villa, village or Corfu.

Debbie Wilkins purchased this villa in 2006
We had set criteria while searching for some land to build our villa on. We wanted a lovely sea view, in a good location and to be able to walk to a beach. We found all of them and designed our villa with sea views from every room.
The view from our balconies at any time of day is stunning. We like being able to walk to a bar/taverna yet have a peaceful place to retreat to.
We had a fantastic family holiday at Gem Villa Rosa. The villa was clean and comfortable with plenty of space. The photos doesn't do the villa justice. Good location about 10 mins walk to San Stephanos and the lovely beeches shops and bars and 15 mins to Arillas. Debbie the owner was fantastic really helpful and we would recommend this villa to anyone. We have tried booking for next year unfortunately the dates are already booked.
We stayed there at the end of June 2016 and had a wonderful time. The villa is very spacious, bedrooms have lots of storage and living space is very generous. The balcony overlooks San Stefanos village and bay, with wonderful views. Late afternoon you van watch Kestrels and Buzzards soaring and hunting in the afternoon heat. At night the sunsets from the balcony are beautiful. It is a short walk downhill to either San Stefanos or Arillas and the nearest bars, the Gravia and Akrotiri are also nearer being just a short walk away on the headland separating San Stefanos and Arillas. There are lovely walks around the area and we also hired a boat for half a day and went down the coast to Paleokastritsa, a great day out. We had a hire car for the fortnight we were there, but could easily have managed without one. There is a good bus service to Corfu town, and a local bus connecting Sidari through to Agios Gorgios. All in all a beautiful part of the Island with very friendly people wherever we went, food in tavernas was lovely, very generous portions and lovely Mythos.
Spent my wedding and honeymoon at this location last June, the weather was perfect and it was a brilliant holiday for guests of all ages. I wouldn't of wanted my special day to be anywhere else.To top it off we managed to see dolphins in the sea! We will definitely be returning.
There are several routes to the beach on foot, the short cut takes approximately 10 minutes, but for the less mobile the road route takes approximately 20 minutes.
By car the journey takes just a few minutes.
Nearest airport is Corfu which is 35 kilometres away. We can help arrange car hire or a taxi to/from Corfu airport.
The nearest bar/taverna is 5 minutes on foot.
Agios Stefanos is a small resort but is a great destination for families. The beach is sandy and suitable for children and non-swimmers. The village has a good selection of tavernas and bars and there are several gift shops and small supermarkets. Various trips are available from local travel agents and car hire is also available.
