With captivating panoramic views from every window, the countless other attributes of this fabulous hilltop property might easily go unnoticed. However its tasteful décor, magnificent private infinity pool and close proximity to the charming town of Kassiopi means villa Aetos ticks all the boxes for an indulgent luxury holiday.
This villa’s earthy hue and traditional exterior sits comfortably, along an unmade track road which leads to Corfu’s tranquil countryside, surrounded by acres of olive groves which overlooks the stunning bay of Avlaki. Across the sparkling waters of the Ionian Sea, the gentle rise and fall of the scenic Albanian coastline adds extra magic to the picturesque tableau.
Savour the sight of the gently curving Avlaki Beach in the background as you step into the refreshing waters of an idyllic infinity pool; if you can tear your eyes from the view for long enough, stretch out with a book on one of the stylish sun loungers thoughtfully positioned around the terrace and unwind with a chilled beverage.
Inside, Villa Aetos is bright and spacious with floor to ceiling patio doors, framed by pretty pale blue shutters, allowing light to flood into each room. The ground floor lounge, kitchen and one of the four bedrooms all open straight out onto the poolside patio.
A traditional fireplace and exposed timber beams across the high ceiling of the open plan lounge/dining room provide a rustic feel, while the furnishings are contemporary and immaculately presented. Sliding open the patio doors along both sides of the room allows cooling sea breezes to flow through this beautiful space.
The kitchen is impressively appointed, complete with American style fridge freezer and an abundance of fully fitted cabinets. Doors lead directly out to a poolside dining area, understandably a preferred location for most meals with a view that’s equally breath-taking at any time of the day. A second outside dining suite is located to the side of the property where with the help of a built-in barbecue you can serve delicious grilled meat or mouth-watering seafood, effortlessly cooked to perfection.
The villa’s four en suite bedrooms are serene and comfortable, decorated in cool pastel shades with elegant modern furniture. A twin and a king size are located on the ground floor while upstairs you’ll find a third bedroom with a double bed plus the gorgeous master suite, boasting a Jacuzzi bath, twin wash basins and its own private balcony with the best views in the house.
However blissful this wonderful villa undoubtedly is, there will come a time when the glorious Ionian Sea and dazzling white pebble beaches below become just too hard to resist; fortunately the delightful former fishing village of Kassiopi with its array of tavernas is less than 2 kms away and you can dip your toes in the cool shallows of the nearby beaches within just a few minutes’ drive.
As the sun goes down, Kassiopi becomes a little livelier, its harbourside bars and restaurants offering plenty of choice for those seeking a little nightlife. There are also plenty of opportunities to hire a boat or enjoy some watersports and the Aqualand water park is around an hour’s drive away.
Villa Aetas is a superb choice for a truly relaxing break and comes highly recommended.
