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