The Luxury Travel Book - Luxury apartment & villa accommodation to rent in beautiful destinations
Corfu, Greece · Villa · 7 Bedrooms · 14 people
The unique and luxurious Kassiopia Estate is situated on a privately owned five acre headland, with spectacular views and beautiful landscaped grounds. The estate in Corfu consists of two stunning luxury villas, the elegant and super luxurious Cassiopeia House, (sleeping 14) with its sensational pool and entertaining area, and the enchanting, incredibly comfortable and more intimate Atolikos House (sleeping 6). The properties can be taken together for larger parties, or rented separately. If rented separately, each villa is private, with its own swimming pool, and each has its own pathway down to the small pebble beach and the sea, and a shared jetty. The estate is perfect both for a relaxing holiday, or to host a wedding or other celebration. A haven of peace and tranquillity, it is just a short walk from the village and harbour of Kassiopi, with its shops, bars and restaurants. Boat hire is a must, as it is an easy trip to one of the many pretty waterside tavernas on the north-east coastline, stopping for a swim in another deserted cove along the way.
Designed by a Norman Foster trained architect and built to the highest specifications by the owner, Cassiopeia House combines a strong Venetian influence, traditional Corfiot features and the ultimate in modern comforts. Entrance to the Corfu luxury villa is into an exceptionally beautiful courtyard, which also provides access to the first master bedroom suite and the adjoining guest room. The magnificent 16m living room at the front of the villa is filled with light, with nine French windows opening to a wonderful terrace with sea and mountain views. The living room has stone floors and two Corfiot fireplaces at either end, and is divided into a sitting area at one end, and a dining area at the other end. Stairs from the sitting room lead down to five spacious bedrooms, each exquisitely decorated and opening to private terraces, shaded by magnificent hand crafted stone arches and with beautiful sea views. A funky retro cinema is on the ground floor, with three huge pink sofas, a massive 52 inch TV screen and a VW camper van adorning the wall. There is also a small gym, plus a sauna and steam room. Further amenities at this amazing property include air conditioning/ceiling fans in all bedrooms, study, kitchen, dining room and sitting room, plus under floor heating. There is also an Osmosis drinking water machine, mosquito netting on all windows, hair dryer in each bedroom, Sky TV in the cinema room, satellite TV with 200+ channels, including movies, in all bedrooms, study and the gym, and DVD player in the cinema room. There are also I-pod docking speakers in all bedrooms, and Sonos music system in 9 zones, including the sitting room, tower master bedroom, pool area and outdoor terrace. A computer, fax and printer in the ground floor study and wi-fi throughout, including the pool area.
The well-equipped and state of the art kitchen opens out onto a fabulous outdoor covered entertaining area with its own bar, barbecue and outside dining table for up to 20 guests, all with spectacular sea views. The views towards the bays and inlets of Avlaki and to the rocky Island and lighthouse of Kaparelli in the south and up to the Kassiopi headland and Albanian mountains in the north are unrivalled. The huge pool house and area is also stunning, with a 20m salt water infinity pool, also with a swim jet exercise machine. A poolside ‘Moroccan area’ with comfortable seating, offers a perfect shaded reading and relaxation area. The pool house at this luxury villa has a Corfiot fireplace, barbecue and small kitchen equipped with fridge, dishwasher, icemaker and all the poolside essentials. Stone steps lead up to a second smaller pool overlooking the main infinity pool and area below. Designed with smaller children and parents in mind, the oval pool is easily viewed from the comfortable poolside day beds and sun loungers. From here steps weave their way down to a small pebble beach offering beautiful sea swimming and snorkelling.
