This wonderful 27 acres absolute waterfront retreat comprises a magnificent complex of 2 villas and a unique stone-built round studio for romantic getaways each one offering the utmost privacy for a serene and atmospheric stay in enchanting Corfu. It is ideally located in the small locality of Αgia Pelagia in the south East Coast of the Greek island of Corfu offering panoramic views over the Ionian Sea. Set in the spacious grounds of a former olive-oil press, with its grove of venerable olive trees - an exquisite combination of simplicity, harmony and sophistication - the property has been faithfully maintained to provide you with an exclusive taste of the comfort and luxury of the life-style of Corfu.
Step outside, and an exquisite limpid pebble beach where you can while away the hot summer days lies just in front of the Waterfront Villa. The property boasts a private wooden jetty for your boat but you can also swim and snorkel off the jetty.
Set among splendid gardens the two inviting swimming pools are ideal for family and friends gatherings. Each features a sunbathing area with sun beds that adds a contemporary touch of luxury while the surrounding area is shaded by century old olive trees offering great open-air living spaces for afternoon coffee, gatherings and a perfect place for day and night relaxation.
Only a few meters away, the property offers a lightened tennis court for the more active guests of Waterfront Villa.
A 16th century enchanting chapel can host romantic and intimate wedding celebrations inspiring guests even at its view. Activities in the surrounding area include snorkeling, water sports, jogging and golf 16 miles from the property.
The two villas can be rented either separately or together, thereby offering accommodation to totally 24 guests making it perfect for families and large groups of friends.
Off the beach, Corfu is a large and interesting island, with a beautiful and lively Old Town redolent of Corfu’s Venetian heritage, a swinging night-life for younger guests, and some fine museums and churches. There are water-sports, an Aqualand water-park, an eighteen hole golf-course, and some very good tavernas and fish restaurants, some very close to the house. For the adventurous, we can organise day-trips, or longer trips, to Albania, even private visit to the wonderful site of Butrint, escorted by the Director of the Site. Corfu is also known for its gorgeous, lush landscape and some fine beaches. Access is very easy both from Athens and abroad, as it has an international airport catering for international, scheduled and charter flights.
