This simple yet modern house was completed in 2013, set over three floors the house has been set back into the hillside seemingly defying gravity and surrounded by olive groves. Set below the coast road the house faces south down the Corfu Channel providing spectacular views of the Greek main land and Corfu Town and Corfu.

For sun worshippers the south facing terraces and pool provide relaxed sun bathing and swimming. With a quiet second terrace on the guest bedroom level.

The ground floor has an open plan living area and dining area set out over 70 sq mtrs, with a well appointed kitchen, containing Miele appliances and enough cookware to cater to the largest parties. On this level we also have a small single bedroom and a bathroom with shower stall. A Sonos sound system connected to a 40" TV with UK SKY television, and Apple TV provides the entertainment

Set off the house in its own space is a laundry with Miele washing machine and tumble dryer set.

On the first floor we have the two guest bedrooms, both with their own en-suites, one with bath and one with shower. One guest bedroom has a European king size and the other also has a European king size which can be split into two singles if necessary. The guest level has its own terrace with an exterior sofa suite and peace.

Finally the top level is given over to the large master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and walk in closet. Commanding spectacular panoramic views, it has a beautiful European super king size four poster bed and also an egg bath for a relaxing bath whilst enjoying the view. The en-suite has a custom Italian blue limestone shower tray and sink set for the extra feeling of luxury. A small private terrace completes this most decadent of living areas.

The majority of the furniture has been imported from Lombok in the UK, and all the soft furnishings and curtains were handmade in the UK by Barbara Caspari Interiors of Cheltenham. The same marble stone (which is pitted and wire brushed to give a textural feel underfoot) is both outside and inside so that with all the floor to ceiling windows open there is a sense of real inside outside living.

The house is located in the North East of Corfu in part of the area famously known as Kensington-on-Sea, the area is famed for it's beachside tavernas in Agni and the many beautiful coves and beaches. A thirty minute drive or a water taxi across the bay will get you to Corfu Town, a World Heritage Site, with its beautiful examples of Venetian architecture and the Citadel and Old Fort. Wander through the streets rich in history and enjoy a Greek coffee on the Liston.

For the youthful the Aquapark is just outside Corfu Town, or a rental boat to explore the coastline. For the fit a hike up Pantokrator the largest mountain on Corfu, which has a monastery at its summit. There are also many other exciting things to explore to many to mention here.

Whilst you are staying in the house you will be looked after by Mags the housekeeper, who comes five mornings a week. Also Julia who acts as house manager/concierge who can help you with any requests that you might have. For those guests with small children, a baby gate is installed at the entrance to the stairs and a clip on high chair and travel cot are in the house also a Mclaren pram. The house is fully air conditioned which can also do reverse cycle heating, coming in 2015 will be the diesel burner for underfloor heating throughout the house. This makes the house available all year around for anyone who would like to visit Corfu at Christmas or the Greek orthodox Easter.

The pool is 12 mtrs by 5 and it should be noted that the pool does not have an safety netting around it.

PLEASE NOTE: We have arranged all the house swaps that we can do for 2015 and the house is now only available to rent
