The luxurious and aesthetically unique villa 'Mare e Monti' is situated on the Island of the Corfu and is built on the highest ground of the Acharavi-Almyros region (a short-distance again from your glorious and renowned Almiros shore). It is roundabouts: a unique mixture of a wonderful and panoramic view of a deep blue sea and a virgin natural beauty in lively shades of green.

The private, 3 storey villa comprises of two separate, luxurious accommodation properties and it is suitable for 6-10 people. The first property is a maisonette which can host up to 6 people. While the second property is an independent full equipped apartment which sleeps up to 4 people. With 3 living spaces, 2 fully equipped kitchens, 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and with a number of lovely balconies and terraces affording magnificent views out towards the north east coastline of Corfu, your days here at Villa Mare E Monti are likely to be spent gazing in awe at this mesmerising views.

Special care has been taken for our little friends, for whom we can provide beds for children, potty chairs and lots of toys. The unique outside dining area (views of both the sea and the mountains) offers the ideal setting for dinner or BBQs and is fully equipped (barbecue, fridge, kitchen counter, faucet with two sinks, etc.). Enjoy the large pool with its special section for children, equipped with umbrellas, deck chairs and external shower. A large private parking area will insure the safety of your automobile.

Stunning Views, Amazing Food, Fabulous Host

  • 5 of 5

We have just had a fabulous holiday in Niko's Villa Mare e Monti in Acharavi. He was a marvelous host who was very attentive and focused on ensuring that we had a fabulous stay in the beautiful mountains. All requests were dealt with very efficiently. Amazing views of the sea and the Albanian Mountains in the distance. The local town was a perfect balance of Greek culture and tourism with the best sandy beach nearby, excellent for children and adults alike only 5 mins drive away called Kalamaki Beach. Lots of free parking. The local restaurants were fantastic, some of the best food we have eaten and reasonably priced. Odysseus was excellent so was the recommended Lemon Garden. The food was great as was the simple restaurant at the bottom of the road called Mythos Taverna with great home cooking and the best Baked Feta.

The Villa is set in the most amazing mountain area with a fantastic warm swimming pool. Great facilities for adults and children with extremely comfortable loungers. The villa is equipped with everything you could need. Bedding and towels were changed more then once a week and the villa was cleaned too. Fabulous barbecue area with fantastic views. We highly recommend this villa and town.

Probably the nicest villa I've ever stayed in.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 1 week in August 2016.

I'm in 2 minds about writing this review as it means more people will book it and I may not be able to secure it next year! The photos don't lie - the villa is well positioned and beautifully kept. Nikos, the Owner, was very welcoming and could not be more helpful. We were a party of 9; 2 adults and 7 kids. We had 4 on the top floor, 2 on the middle floor and 3 in the lower level separate self-contained apartment. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils and cutlery. Given the large party the large outdoor table and bbq had daily use. There are 3 proper supermarkets in Acharavi which is a 10 minute drive away. The Beaches at Acharavi and Almyros are clean and seaweed-free. A little windy and slightly rougher sea due to being on the north of the island but that's the north! Places such as Paleokastritsa are about a 40 minute drive away but still worth doing. Everything you could want from a Holiday Rental really.

Fantastic house and hospitable owner

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in oktober on Corfu with temperature of 20-25 degrees. Every day sun and a with little bit rain in the nights. Villa Mare was a fantastic villa for our family (7 pers) with plenty of rooms, and a beautiful garden and swimming pool. After a thunderstorm there was no electricity and water but with the thoughtful gardener and housekeeper Spiros the problem was fixed soon. Also we can reccomend this villa also in the quiet but also with beautiful weather in oktober. Thanks to Nikos and Spiros for the shoppings and all attention. Warm greetings, family Speckmann

Fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Mare e Monti for one week with a group of 4 adults and 4 children. The owner Nikos took good care of us throughout our stay and we felt at home almost instantly.

From the inside, the villa had everything we needed. But since the weather was great, we really spent most of our time outside.

There is a large and well maintained garden around the villa, with some swings that provided good fun for the kids. The swimming pool is spacious as well and is accomponied with nice sunbeds.

Since the villa is located on a hill, you get magnificent scenery views all around the villa. You have great view on the sea, the Albanian coast and surrounding hills on the Corfu side. Every evening you can also enjoy a nice sunset from one of the many balconies.

We will definitely come back to this villa!

A very pleasant holiday home with all facilities needed! First a great welcome by Nikos and felt really great at the house. Nice swimming pool, extreme large garden and all extremely clean. Cosy terrace for the barbecue with outdoor refrigerator. Close the the small city center with small shops, restaurants and supermarket.

Right next to the diamond seaside of Corfu, at the northern part of the island of Phaiakes, lies the area of Acharavi, a place of exquisite beauty. Located on Acharavi-Almiros, the highest area of the island (Mount of Pandokratora), Mare e Monti is an outstanding, recently constructed villa of exquisite taste that combines the endless blue of the Ionian Sea and the magical surrounding nature scenery.

There is a mini market 200 m from the villa and it's about 800 m from the beach of Almyros. The beach Almyros is essentially the continuation of the cosmopolitan Acharavi. The beach is known for its shallow waters and the soft sand it is awarded with the Blue Flag by the E.U.

The cosmopolitan village, Acharavi is only 2 km from the villa, with a lot of restaurant, tavernes, bank, super market and other facilities. Acharavi beach is one of the biggest beaches in Corfu and it has a long, sandy beach that is well organized and equipped with facilities for water sports.

The villa is located about 40 km from the city and the nearest airport is Ioannis Kapodistrias Airport. Also, there are frequent buses between Almyros and Corfu Town. 150 m from the villa there is a bus stop where the bus passes (Green Bus Line) which connects the center of Corfu to Acharavi and Almyros. In a distance of 10 km there are also two nice villages Kassopi and Sidari while at a distance of 11 km is located Canal d' Amour Beach.
