At a Glance
With an elevated hillside position in Kassiopi, this property has a superb location that offers absolute privacy, peace and quiet yet is within easy reach of all amenities and the beach - The pretty harbour resort of Kassiopi and Avlaki bay are both just a 5-minute drive away and Corfu Town and the airport less than an hour’s drive. The views from the property are simply stunning - a near 180° vista ranging from a glimpse of Kassiopi harbour and castle, across the countryside to Avlaki Bay, Kapareli lighthouse and the Corfu Channel to Albania and its majestic mountains in the distance.
Set within a beautiful olive grove of 15,000 sqm that is full of ancient olives as well as cypresses, the main gardens close to the villa offer a wonderful array of trees and shrubs. There are terraced areas planted with variety of fruit trees, including lemons, oranges, pomegranates. The spacious external living areas are simply wonderful and they offer both open and covered stone paved terraces and verandas that are perfect for relaxing in the shade, soaking up the sun, entertaining or dining alfresco. There is a BBQ area, and on a lower level, a heated infinity pool of 9×5.5m plus a spacious pool house.
The main property gate opens onto a private driveway which meanders through the olive grove to the parking areas. From here, an archway leads into an enclosed courtyard, the main villa, and steps that give access to the separate guest cottage. The villa has a country-style feel to it, is well maintained and offers comfortable, spacious living over two levels.
The ground floor level features a spacious living room with fireplace and high exposed wooden beamed ceiling, a fully fitted kitchen that leads to both internal and external dining areas, and all these rooms have French doors leading out a spacious terraced area with covered seating and dining - all this surrounded by the wonderful trees, plants and shrubs.
