About the villa

What was once an olive mill built in 1740 has been recently refurbished into a cool and characterful luxury villa, just 5km from shops and restaurants in Corfu Town. There’s a taverna next door for traditional Corfiot dining, plus you can even have home-cooked meals delivered straight to your door  at your convenience. Entrance to this charming villa is down a path at the centre of the lawned gardens peppered with majestic olive trees; at the end of the path is a very inviting private pool and through an archway there’s a wonderful al fresco dining area with a pizza oven and BBQ covered by a leafy pergola. Inside, the villa has been exquisitely decorated with ornate mirrors and tasteful works of art. Accommodation is all on one level featuring a large living room with high beamed ceilings and access to the terrace, a well-equipped kitchen with a breakfast table and a cosy library. There are three delightful bedrooms comprising two double rooms with king size beds with a shared shower room which can be set up as twin bedrooms. Then there is the master bedroom which is beautifully decorated with an antique Louis 14th bed equipped with a custom French Bultex mattress and its own shower room en suite.  

This villa is perfect for guests who enjoy hiking as there is a beautiful Italian pine forest just minutes away, plus a multitude of hiking trails. Meanwhile, there are amazing beaches on both the east and west coast of the island within easy driving distance.

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.

We are delighted to offer our Corfu CV Charter flight from London Gatwick. With dedicated check-in and convenient flight times that combine well with tenancy times, we recommend flying on our Charter flight. We can also organise flights from other London and regional airports to suit your requirements, which you can book online or over the phone with one of our Villa Specialists.


Car hire can be pre-booked through CV Villas with collection at the airport or port of arrival, and in some cases the hire car can be delivered to the villa for an additional charge. Please ask for details.

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.
