At a Glance
Nestled into the hillside in Nissaki, on the sought after north east of the island – often referred to as the ‘Kensington on sea’ region of Corfu – this superb luxury villa has been designed to an exceptionally high standard.

Just 150 meters below the property there are 2 secluded coves and these unspoilt beaches are reached via a common footpath through the mature olive groves.
Newly constructed using local hand chipped pale white stone, the villa has the look of a traditional olive press and the ambience of an art gallery. Its finishes include exposed stone walls and hand finished timber beams that have been washed with Lye to organically lighten them. Modern technological systems have been incorporated in the build for efficiency and personal comfort. The features of the property are endless, but include air conditioning, ceiling fans, under floor heating, a fan coil heating and cooling system, gated security for both entrances and multiple private parking.
