Property for sale in Corfu Greece, in short summary quite simply 'breathtaking' - This unique masterpiece which took its creator four years to complete will capture the imagination and 'film star' in everyone. The design considerations for this luxury villa are second to none...
 
The Villa sits at the height of the Votanas Hill. From its peak it enjoys full views to the North, South and East. The Villa's elevated position allows its design to curve around the crown of the Votanas Hill which gives the villa its more broad Eastern exposure.

The villa for sale stands on own land of 4.500m within a development area of total 260.000m, with a 90m pebbly beach frontage, panoramic views and a 5min walk to the beaches of Avlaki and Cogevina and the international airport in Kerkyra (Corfu town) is a 1 hour drive away. The access is via hard-surfaced municipal road and the highest point of the development area is +50m, the lowest point +/- 0m (sea level).

As the images testify the luxury villa provides the perfect calm and quiet surrounding and only seconds from the sandy beach.

The L-shape of the house for sale combined with a shift of the veranda roof northward creates a loose courtyard for the pool. The luxury villa has three levels of exterior area which mimic in scale the three storey of the house; the main level holds the pool deck and primary outdoor living space under a covered veranda; the lower floor has a gently curved, semi-private veranda with ample space for informal meals and seating; and the top floor incorporates a small breakfast table exclusive to the master suite.

This inspirationally designed villa offers four (4) king-size bedrooms, all with en-suite access, TV and hairdryers. Having a separate entrance, there is an additional 5th bedroom with its own kitchen and en-suite bathroom either to be used for an additional bedroom for a large family or as a guest room. Exquisitely designed provides perfectly balanced, living dining and entertaining areas.

The main living area of the luxury villa features tall ceilings and open trusses characteristic of the island's construction adding to the quite incredible design. It has open views on three sides and a stone fireplace as the focus of the fourth.

Inside on the ground level you'll find a classic and timeless design kitchen with complete appliances, open to the dining room of 12 people capacity and to the covered barbecue area through a pass-through window. The dining room extends the volume of the kitchen northward and opens on three sides; one to the pool courtyard, one to the covered barbecue area and the third straight out to the sea.

As the villa hugs the contours of the hill, the three bedrooms gain wonderful light and views from the South, North and East and are located on the lower level, along with a laundry room. Each one has an en-suite bathroom and ample closets. French doors lead to a sweeping stone deck with enough room for a meal or lounging in the sun. Fragrant and colorful local flowers grow in planters made of local, rough-hewn stone.

Up the elegant stairs is the master bedroom on the upper level creating complete privacy and taking advantage of the view. A private exterior sitting area covers the barbecue area below and provides an outside breakfast table. The master bathroom has six fixtures including a large glass shower, a generous tub with a lowered window for the view, two sinks and an enclosed WC.

Extra features that this marvelous villa offers are under floor heating throughout the house, air-condition in all of the bedrooms, water clean system, satellite TV and wireless internet.

Location
 
The site is on the sea, with uninterrupted views north and east of the mountains of Albania, the beach of Avlaki bay, and a peninsular national preserve on Corfu's Northern coast. The view to the southwest is of Corfu's own mountain range; its lower slopes covered with olive trees. The slopes of the terrain and the opportunities for design allow the villa having a clear view of the sea while maintaining the essential privacy. The private road winds its way through the topography slowing vehicular traffic. Tall cypress trees will be planted in the Venetian tradition to screen the villas' private driveways from view.

Visiting Corfu on a crewed yacht charter of the Ionian Islands is a visit to an island that is a cultural melting pot of strong Greek, Roman, Venetian, and British cultural and architectural influences.
 
One of the most northern of the Greek Ionian Islands, Corfu has an international airport, and therefore is a great island to begin or end a crewed yacht charter of the Ionian Island chain.  With strong ties to Greek and Roman mythology and history, and architecturally reflective of both the Venetian and British occupation of the island, Corfu is an exciting island to visit while cruising on a yacht charter in Greece.

Corfu is said to be named after the beautiful mythological water nymph, Korkyra, with whom Poseidon fell in love, captured and brought to Corfu where their child, Phaiax, was born.  There are still several ancient temple sites from Greek and Roman settlements on the island.   However, Corfu, sitting off of the northwest coast of the mainland of Greece was long controlled by the Venetians, and was the scene of a numerous battles, and sieges, reflected today in the number of castles that dot the island country side.  The British controlled Corfu until Corfu became a Greek Island.  Today Corfu is one of the few places in Greece, where cricket is still played.

Old Town Corfu, built by the Venetians on a peninsula separated from the rest of the island by a natural gully that was dug into a moat, is a labyrinth of streets behind fortified walls.  This is a colourful fun area to wander with narrow streets and little shops.  Behind the town is the Esplanade and Citadel with an arcade filled with little restaurants and bistros.

Nearby are the Neo Frourio (the new citadel) and Palaio Frourio (the old citadel), both also built by the Venetians and open for visitors to wander and explore.   Also nearby is the Palaia Anaktora and gardens, once home to the King of Greece and now filled with museums surrounded by the beautiful gardens.  And to the south of the city is the Achilleion, built by the Empress of Austria in the late 1800's as a neoclassic tribute to Achilles, and now open to visitors as a museum.

The countryside of Corfu is dotted with olive trees and wildflowers and around the coastline are beautiful beaches with crystal clear water.  Be sure to visit Paleokastrits Bay on the northwest side of Corfu overlooked by the 12th century monastery of Theotokos.  Take the ship's tender into the many caves washed into the shoreline of this bay with beautiful blue water.

While there are certainly Greek and Roman remains on Corfu, the overwhelming architectural style and feel is Venetian and neo classic as left from the Venetian and British periods of occupation.  And surrounding all are the beautiful Greek waters with bays and anchorages to visit for a refreshing swim on your crewed yacht charter in the Greek Ionian Islands.

There's plenty of fun to be had on Corfu. Great beaches, great watersports and some great bars and restaurants all add up to a perfect holiday. And with its beautiful scenery, it's small wonder that the island also attracted more than its fair share of artists and writers, from Goethe to Oscar Wilde, and from Alfred Sisley to Edward Lear.

The island also has a fascinating history. According to the ancient myths, it was here that Jason and the Argonauts landed with the Golden Fleece. Since then, Corfu has been occupied by the Corinthians, Romans, Byzantines, Venetians, Ottomans, French and British – and they have all left their mark on the island. But after heavy bombing during World War II, only a quarter of the old city of Corfu survived.
