About the villa

Sympathetically restored to retain its three centuries of character, and unobtrusively updated with the contemporary facilities, this lovely old house and guesthouse nestle amid  two acres of picturesque gardens and grounds.  Palms, flowering shrubs and numerous types of fruit and citrus trees fill its garden terraces, whilst it also has its own olive grove, from which organic olive oil is made most years.  A stroll through the tiered garden reveals a picnic table in a sunny spot, a classic stone fountain, a pergola cloaked in bougainvillea and, privately positioned just below the main house the pretty guesthouse and oval swimming pool. There is a shower and thatched shade at the poolside with sundowner seating and millstone tables, rustic benches with beautiful rural and sea views that stretch right down  the coast to Corfu Town. Inside the villa there are two Jacuzzi bathrooms and three charming bedrooms, each with air conditioning; a country kitchen is fitted with quality appliances; and the beamed sitting room has big sofas, a wood-burning stove and wall mounted TV, and opens on to a large covered dining and seating area. 

The guesthouse has air conditioning and comprises a lovely open plan sitting room, kitchen area and washroom downstairs. Upstairs, two bedrooms, one a kingsize with four poster bed and a small double bedroom (suitable for one adult or two children) share a bathroom.

At the beginning of the sought after NE coast  nestles the tranquil, picturesque village of Agios Markos. Time stands still here with its Byzantine buildings, flowered terraces and panoramic views. There's  a small local taverna just two minutes away and the sea and amenities at just1.2km. The villa is ideally situated close to a cluster of coastal resorts, as well as beautiful Corfu Town.

About the area

Nissaki, Barbati, Gouvia, Kommeno & Corfu Town

Average weather

Gouvia was once a Venetian naval base and a way-station for the London–Karachi flying-boat service; it now has the island’s biggest marina. Close by, upmarket Kommeno, and the former fishing villages of Nissaki and Barbati for a holiday, represent the best of rural Corfu. Civilized yet unspoilt, the area is half way along Corfu’s most beautiful stretch of coast. Yet, since it flanks the main road, from here the whole of northern Corfu is open to exploration, by bus or—better still—by car.

CV Villas is also delighted to offer our own allocation of scheduled seats on British Airways from London Heathrow to Corfu and on Easyjet from London Gatwick to Corfu.

boat HIRE

There is no better way to explore the coastline and discover deserted bays and coves with their translucent water to add to the overall enjoyment of your holiday. Small boats and speedboats can be pre-booked with our UK office and we recommend early reservations, especially in July and August, as availability is limited. UK boat licences will no longer be valid in Europe from January 2021 due to Brexit. Smaller size boats can still be hired without a licence which remains unchanged.
