Located on the north-east coast of the island, nearby the serene and scenic fishing village of Agios Stefanos, this beachfront residence seems peacefully tucked away on a virgin piece of land reminiscent of Greek myths. It is positioned among ancient olive groves, dense vegetation and soothing water fountains with the plot smoothly descending amphitheatrically into an unusually secluded, virtually private beach, only accessible through the property’s gate or by the improbable intrusion from the sea.
Residents of this estate, no matter their age, are lulled by the sound of the sea while they can admire spectacular views to the Corfu Channel stretching from the mountains of Albania up to Corfu’s own gentle hills. This residence offers a great living experience as it exquisitely balances sheer grandeur with exceptional domestic comfort: the interiors feature sleek marble floors and sparkling chandeliers with opulent contemporary designer fabrics dressing soft-colored and magnificently comfortable beds and couches. Overall spacious en suite bedrooms with stunning sea views are decorated with fine Italian inlaid marble whereas the master bathroom and VIP suite are also equipped with sunken oval baths for two. The sea-view kitchen, blending superb aesthetics with professional equipment, is a dream come true for stylish gourmet aficionados and a wonderful gathering point for leisurely enjoying an evening cocktail while dinner is being prepared.
All interior spaces are intriguing, however, the property’s outdoor-spaces are pure bliss: an elegant, extensive terrace features a large mosaic horizon swimming pool with built-in Jacuzzi, sun loungers as well as various shaded sitting areas, all complemented with just perfect sea views. For the genuinely romantic, the estate’s hidden treasure is to be discovered following the private path through the olive trees to the beach up to its petite stone clad beach house equipped with deck chairs and comfortable sofas. Get ready for your private beach party under the starlit sky! As the entire area is illuminated at night this will become your favorite hangout at all hours.
With the passage of time Corfu may have changed, but we can still feel the spirit of a distant glorious past . Its rich multi-cultural heritage, its historic monuments its stunning natural landscape, its crystal clear seas, and its excellent weather all year round explain why Corfu is one of the most cosmopolitan Mediterranean destinations weaving a powerful spell on its visitors.
Corfu (Kérkyra), unlike the rest of Greece, never fell under the Ottoman oppression. Due to the successive dominations of the Venetians, the French and the British over the centuries, the island has primarily become part of the Western rather the Levantine world. Their culture wielded strong influence in the city: it was here that the first Greek University (theIonian Academy), the first Philharmonic Orchestra and the First School of Fine Arts were founded.
