A dream come true

Truly remarkable is the superlative scenic beauty and the views from this exclusive, luxurious coastal hideaway, which lies secluded within the intoxicating and multi-hued sylvan coastline of Corfu near Kanoni, the island’s former capital.  The phenomenal property has a prestigious location directly opposite the simmering deep blue Ionian Sea from the picturesque Byzantine-chapel islet of Pontikonissi.  The villa bestows a classic grandeur of unique privilege and privacy, less than twenty minutes from the airport and also Corfu town.  Comprising a main villa with two master and four garden twin bedroom suites (plus staff rooms), a separate, self-contained guest house with two bedroom suites, each with a private terrace and a shared living area with kitchenette, plus one other double bedroom suite in the pool house.  The multi-level terraced grounds remain entirely enveloped within an idyllic setting of flowering Mediterranean shrubs and woodland.  The décor is premier quality and particularly elegant that fits with the bright and breezy ambience of rooms blending and flow into the next.  Exquisite enhancements include hand-painted tiles and Moroccan marble floors, whilst full-length glazed sliding partitions completely disappear for uninterrupted extension out onto the marvellous outdoor terraces.  These include a main 70 sq. m terrace lounge under a cantilever topped with foliage, as well as a splendid selection of five separate dining areas to choose from; varying for mood and ambiance, at different levels and each with a unique perspective of the enthralling natural beauty of the scenic surroundings.  The scale and enormity of the main terrace and the spread of the 200 sq. m swimming pool are awesome, as are the magical, meandering woodland walkways throughout the grounds.

Covering a total surface area of 750 sq. m, there are 9 luxurious and enormously spacious bedrooms en suite; all arranged, decorated and furnished to the highest quality for a family or group of up to 18 adults.  Exposed brick stoneworks and arched pillars swathed in bougainvillea create a delightful ambiences at any of the selection of 5 outdoor dining terraces; each suit any mood or a different perspective of incomparable and unobstructed 180-degree sea vistas.  Other splendid assets to be fully enjoyed, and which makes this appealing villa a “must go, must see, must stay” destination, is the direct access to the enticing deep-blue Ionian Sea.  The estate’s private 16-metre long pier is as perfect for sunbathing by the water’s edge as is it for launching off on a boating excursion around the island. Summer bliss at its best.

Arguably one of the island’s most exclusive and secluded private properties, this unique and luxurious holiday rental epitomising exclusive privacy and Mediterranean outdoor living at its most glorious and refined; a place “where dreams can become happy realities”.  Already a favoured movie location for Hollywood the property is most suited for grand family holidays or those most special of celebrations.  The beauty of the location and scenery provides a setting par excellence for dream weddings (there is also a 100-year old chapel secreted in the woods) or a corporate retreat for top-notch executives.
