Our seafront Villa Alexia is set in a stunning location in the northern desirable part of Corfu. The Villa is south facing, benefiting from good light throughout the day and access to clear waters protected from the north-westerly prevailing winds. It is set in 1.2 acres of green and rocky land of mostly olive and cypress trees. The big oak tree set ten meters away from the sea that provides natural shade from the burning sun for al-fresco dinning is a rarity owed to the seasonal river that runs adjacent to the property.
Although the 265 msq (2853 sqft) air-conditioned Villa is let as one it is composed of three independent apartments sharing the wonderful outside space; it sleeps 12 in 6 bedrooms.
Previous guests, mostly extended families or friends, have remarked how this setup allows them to enjoy privacy when they choose to take some moments away from the group. The morning swim is only 10m away, where if you choose you can have a power-boat moored, awaiting to whisk you away to explore the nearby beaches or seafront tavernas that pepper the shore-line. Whether you cook or order lunch at the villa you can enjoy it as a big group (12) at the outside seating area under the oak tree shade. In the afternoon the poolside lounge chairs allow you to enjoy a book or a cocktail in comfort while you dip in and out of the 9 x 4.5 m pool.
Dinner cαn be cooked on the build-in barbecue and you can enjoy the sunset hour colours sipping of a fresh juice or wine as a group, or break up in smaller groups and explore the choice of the different cozy areas in the grounds, such as the raised circular veranda, the terraced area next to the well, the large beach rocks or find your own favourite spot.
Local mini-markets (e.g. Aphrodite's) will take your shopping order and deliver it free of charge. We, the owners, will be happy to accommodate guests’ wishes relating to any aspect of their stay, by prior arrangement.
Do you need hire a car? You will need a car to visit other parts of Corfu and there is plenty to see and take part to – check out at https://realcorfu.com/. During the summer, in the town of Corfu, there take place many cultural events and free open concerts with our famous bands. Most of our guests do hire a car but not for the whole of their stay; they enjoy the serenity of the villa and the surroundings. There are several car-hire agencies in the area to choose among and hire-return the car when you wish.
Boat hire: You can hire a boat from nearby Nissaki Boat Rentals (click on the map to see it), which you can moor at a jetty our property is sharing with the adjacent property of my brother. Depending on the weather, the boat rental staff may choose to take it back at night to moor it more safely at their location and bring it back at your chosen time in the morning at no extra cost to you.
