This magnificent hilltop estate, set just back from the sea, has stunning 360 degree views across the strait to mainland Greece and Albania, as well as inland to the totally unspoilt Aghios Markos valley. Set within its own grove of more than a hundred centuries old olive trees (which produce delicious extra-virgin olive oil), the location offers total privacy and peace. The house has all the elegance and intimate style of an old Corfiot mansion, yet its recent construction ensures every possible modern amenity, including internet connections throughout, satellite television and air-conditioned bedrooms and study.
Inside, the house is decorated with exquisite taste: beautiful antiques and stunning paintings mix effortlessly with fresh orchids, hand-painted bed covers, sumptuous linen and masses of books. The overall elegance and attention to detail, together with an atmosphere of relaxed informality, give the feeling of an exquisite luxury boutique hotel – but within the privacy of your own home.
Outside, numerous terraces, both covered and open, are the perfect places from which to admire the spectacular views. From the house a stone path winds down through sweet smelling shrubs to the swimming pool set within the olive grove. Here you can tan yourself on one of the numerous sun beds or sleep in the shade of an ancient olive tree. This is the perfect place to relax, away from it all. With its fabulous views and zen-like calm, once here you may never want to leave!
A charming pool pavilion offers comfortable, deep-cushioned seating and low tables. You will also find changing facilities, indoor and outdoor showers, a loo, fridge, sound system and internet connection.
