About Lucy Rickman
My husband Nick and I (Lucy) have run a business in England for the past 30 years. We have been visiting Corfu regularly since the children were small. Once we discovered Corfu nowhere else seemed to match it as it worked for us as a perfect holiday destination - quiet, peaceful, beautiful views, secluded bays, good water sports, friendly people and plenty of sun. Even as the children got older, NE Corfu was still the perfect destination - it really does cater for everyone in the family.
Lucy Rickman purchased this villa in 2007
Why Lucy Rickman chose Corfu Regional Unit
We literally just stumbled across Villa Loukia whilst on holiday in 2007 and it really was a case of love at first sight. The house was nearing completion but the outside was a complete builder's site and there was no pool. Perhaps it was the fact that the children were beginning to leave home that influenced us into deciding that it was time for a new adventure. Buying a house in Corfu had not been our plan but certainly since making the decision to allow our hearts to rule our heads we have not looked back. We completed in December 2007 and then had a VERY stressful 4 months getting the outside finished, pool constructed, snags repaired, house furnished etc - all from my computer in England and just in time for the 2008 season. In true Greek style it was ready with minutes to spare! Between 2015 - 2017 the villa was extended and completed refurbished inside. It is now just the perfect holiday house.
What makes this villa unique
Villa Loukia is unusual for NE Corfu because although set in a secluded position in tranquil olive groves, away from other properties, it is also in walking distance of the village of Kassiopi. This is a real bonus as our past experience showed us that with the majority of villas we HAD to drive to the tavernas at night. Using the experience we gained over the years we also wanted to make sure that the villa was well equipped with everything you might want on holiday and that the kitchen was such that you could actually cook in it (if you want to)! The views from Villa Loukia are stunning & it is the location and setting of the house that we fell in love with. Our guests to date all agree! From 2018 our goal has been to make Villa Loukia carbon neutral and we are committed to reducing climate change. Carbon offsetting is used to balance out our emissions by helping to pay for emission savings in other parts of the world. We pledge to offset each year the carbon connected to the use of Villa Loukia as a holiday rental. This includes electricity, car usage by guests and staff, laundry and ALL guest flights. We are really pleased that in 2018 Villa Loukia produced 80% of the electricity used (including air conditioning and pool heating) from the Photovoltaic Panel System on the roof and the Solar Water System. In total for 2018, we have calculated that Villa Loukia used some 38.4 tonnes of carbon. We have rounded this up to 40 tonnes and this has been offset with a donation to carbonfootprint and their Community Projects Portfolio in Developing Countries. The pledge we make is personal and on behalf of our Granddaughter, Imogen, so that she and her descendants can have a future. It does not come at any financial cost to our guests. I add blog up-dates to the villa website if you want more information.
