Asprochori Village - Information

Arrivals & Departures
Most flights to Corfu are on Mondays, but we may be able to take your booking on another day of the week. We will welcome you personally at any time during the day or night. If you prefer, we can arrange for a taxi to meet you at the airport (this is strongly recommended for those arriving during the night). As stipulated on the voucher, houses are ready by 16:00 on the day of arrival and check-out time on departure day is 09:00 (we do try to be flexible with check-out times for families with small children). We strongly advise clients arriving during the night to book their villa a day before their actual arrival date. This ensures that tenacy can commence immediately. If not, clients must wait until their villa is vacated and cleaned. Clients leaving on a night flight may wish to book an extra day, enabling them to use their villa until they leave for the airport.

Baby Sitting
Our English staff offer a baby sitting service every night of the week.

Travellers Cheques, Eurocheques with card and cash are easily exchanged. Please note that credit cards are not widely accepted on the island (including Asprochori), but credit cards can be used to extract money from the cash point machines in Corfu Town.
