Property description

Set within an enchanting olive grove, overlooking the beautiful bay of Agni, the Agni Olive is a unique 6 bedroomed villa transformed by the sure touch of its owner, Giuseppe, into a romantic and utterly delightful hideaway. It must be one of the most bewitching houses in Corfu, full of character, chic, a skilful blend of old and new. Many features of the old olive press have been incorporated into the house - vaulted brick and stone walls and openings, millstones put to use as tables. A broad paved terrace catches the sun for much of the day and looks down over the olive trees to the sea and the mainland opposite.

The two swimming pools makes the Olive Press one of the most desirable rental properties in the Agni area.


Please Note:
Because many of the old parts of the olive press have been used in the construction of the house (in particular the staircase), we do not recommend this property for the elderly or families with small children.

Layout:
The olive press has been restored into two self-contained areas:

The main property, which houses the original olive press, has an open-plan dining/living room with kitchen. The first floor, which is reached by a wooden staircase, has two twin-bedded rooms and a family bathroom. On the upper floor is a double bedroom with en suite bathroom. The bedrooms are air conditioned.

The ground floor of the property has been converted into a separate annex with living area, kitchen, 3 bedrooms (1 double and 2 twin) with 2 bathrooms. The bedrooms are air conditioned.

Living Area:
The original olive press has been converted into a large living area. At one end is a fireplace, set off by unusual curved couches constructed of stone bases with comfortable cushioning, that face the open fireplace. The walls are hung with old tools and artefacts recalling the building's past. Double French doors lead on to the large upper sea view terrace.

Dining Areas:
A large stone wheel press serves as the inside dining table. Double French doors lead out to the sun terrace.

Kitchen:
The kitchen area is amazing - unconventional perhaps in its artistic design, but nevertheless well-equipped. It houses all modern appliances including a dishwasher and oven (microwave/grill/conventional oven). There is a washing machine in an outside laundry room.

Bedrooms:
The three upper bedrooms (all air-conditioned) are reached via an open wooden staircase which has been constructed using part of the old press.

At the top of the first flight of stairs and at the front of the house is a twin-bedded room, simply furnished to set off the handsome stone walls. Two windows overlook wonderful views over Agni Bay.

Next door is a smaller twin-bedded room with French doors leading to a small veranda to the rear of the house.

The top floor is reached via another short flight of stairs and used to be the loft of the olive press. This room has a large double bed facing the full-width patio doors which open onto a private balcony.

Bathrooms:
The Olive press has 5 bathrooms. 3 in the main houser and 2 in the annex.

The Annex:
The annex occupies the lower part of the property and has separate access and offers traditional accommodation for an additional 6 people.

Large patio doors and windows on two sides of the living area make the dividing line between indoors and out almost invisible - a real garden room. These patio doors are the entry to the property.

There is a well equipped kitchen - incorporating original stone features and including a washing machine.

There are 3 air conditioned bedrooms. The annex has two bathrooms both with showers.

Main Terrace:
Doors from the main olive press living room open on to a large shaded terrace with sea views down to Agni Bay. To help you enjoy the setting, there are easy chairs and a large wooden dining table. The main terrace is totally private. A short set of stone steps lead down from the main terrace to the pool terraces. There is a shaded parking area just below the villa.

Swimming Pool:
The magical swimming pool has been modeled around the 'Baths of Aphrodite'. This mythical location is where the the Goddess of Love used to take her bath in a cool pond near Polis. According to legend, Aphrodite used to bathe in this pond, set within an olive grove with sweet smelling wild flowers. It is here that she met her beloved Adonis for the first time. Adonis was hunting in the Akamas forest when stopped to quench his thirst. He was struck by the sight of the naked goddess bathing in the crystal waters. Aphrodite and Adonis were instantly bewitched by each other's extraordinary beauty.

This setting has been imaginatively recreated at the Olive Press with two pools; an upper pool which cascades into a lower pool. Nightlighting illuminates the area so it can also be enjoyed in the evening.

Pool Dimensions:
Upper Pool Size: 8m x 7m
Depths: Shallow: 0.1m; Deep End: 1.50m
Lower Pool Size: 9m x 8m
Depths: Shallow: 0.8m; Deep End: 1.80m

Agni Bay:

In Greek Agni means un-spoilt and this describes Agni perfectly - just three Tavernas (each with their own jetty for mooring up to) and a sprinkle of local buildings. The bay is reached mainly by rented motor boats, although recently there is now a narrow road down into the bay. Each evening we offer a 'Speed Boat' taxi service, from surrounding bays to Taverna Agni. The above video shows the exciting experience.

The house is set within an olive grove and pathways lead down to Agni Bay and up to the village of Loustri where you will find the bakery for your daily loaf of fresh warm bread.
