Description

Secluded seashore retreat

Located in the Kanoni area, this magnificent estate has views over the small island of Pontikonissi and its picturesque Byzantine chapel.

Shimmering within a luscious forest of multi-hued greenery this prestigious villa gives the feeling of unique privacy.

The grandeur of the villa, the enormity of the pool, plus the vast span of unobstructed views over the Ionian Sea are incomparable.  Manicured lawns and ornate flowering shrubbery contrast with magical meandering natural stone walkways that wander through the forest, leading to an ancient miniature church.

Outside dining areas are shaded by arched pillars of hand carved white stone bricks, swathed with plantings of beautiful bougainvillaea carefully integrating the villa’s elegance with casual alfresco dining.  The interior is reminiscent of opulent times, stunningly accented with Italian hand-painted tiles.  Refined elegance exudes from every space as rooms blend easily from one to the next.  Moroccan marble floors, summery cool coloured furnishings and huge sliding glass doors, which pass out of sight into the walls, instantly create an ambiance of outdoor living.

There are a multitude of dining spaces leaving you wondering where to take your next delicious meal, opting to choose a new spot each time according to the view that suits your present mood.  However, it is the cantilevered seating area that I love the most.  The glorious summer evening breeze, an incredible 180-degree view complete with twinkling lights across the deep blue Ionian Sea, a place where dreams can become happy realities.
