Overview

About the property

Bedrooms 4, Bathrooms 5, Occupancy 10

Watchtower house is an ideal holiday resort for the entire family. The villa is situated in an olive grove of 11 ha. It posesses an extra long pool with children section. A quiet beach is 350m away. The views to the sea are astonishing.

This beautiful, spacious villa has been built in 10,000 square metres of olive groves on a gently sloping hillside just above the North East coast.

Watchtower house has taken its name from an old tower situated next to the villa that was used to watch the enemy ships.

The house was made with care and classic taste. Expences weren't spared in the construction and we believe that has all the luxuries one can ask.

The house has three levels. In the ground level is the living room, kitchen and two bedrooms with their in suite bathrooms. In the upper level there are two bedrooms with their en suite batrooms and in the lower ground level is the playroom (mini-gym, pool table, PS3) plus two beds, a bathroom and a laundry room.

Outside, an attractive shaded al fresco dining area is complemented by a fully-equipped outdoor kitchen next to the barbecue all under a shaded pergola. We don’t think you will be able to drag yourselves away from this love spot! The scene is completed by an exceptionally large horizon pool with a small shallow childrens’ section and a further shaded area behind the villa which houses a table tennis. Additional children's play facilities can be found on the grass by the pool. The views along the entire coastline, across to Albania and down to Corfu Town, are simply stunning at all times of the day and can be enjoyed from all the main areas of the house and terraces. The grounds feature paths for exploring and many fruit trees from which you can pick and sample delicious fruit - Quite simply an excellent villa that seems to fulfil most peoples’ expectations and exceed many!

Also last but not least the high mountain summit that can be seen from the back side of the house.

A Corfu Gem

  • 5 of 5

Wow, this villa has it all! This was a two week booking for myself, my wife and our grown up children + partners. The published photos are great, but the reality is so much more. From the moment we arrived we knew this was going to be a wonderful base for our holiday. The views of the sea, the mountains and the Olive groves all around us were just breathtaking.

We were warmly greeted by Dimitris and Frederica on arrival and shown around all the facilities of this beautiful and very well appointed property. All the room are spacious, very tastefully decorated and furnished. Even with a group of seven people there was always a quiet corner on hand to just sit, relax, and admire the beauty and tranquility of the villa grounds and the Corfu vistas all around you.

We have stayed in a number of large holiday villas before, but the facilities and standard of service we received at Watchtower house really were outstanding. It delivered to everyone's expectations, young and old! The large infinity swimming pool is immaculately maintained and was enjoyed by floaters and swimmers alike! To have a completely equipped outdoor kitchen, BBQ and dining area is just so unusual and a real special touch.

There are several Tavernas within easy walking distance of the villa, offering great dining locations and very nice local menus. If you want to hire a boat for the day, that is all on hand too and we had a great day out swimming and snorkeling in the various bays North of Nisaki

We were treated to a wonderful selection of delicious local dishes by Dimitris and Frederica both on arrival and once again in the second week. Nothing was too much trouble if we needed assistance during their regular but very non-intrusive visits to service the property. Our thanks again for a wonderful family holiday at your fabulous villa.

Peter, June and family

Super Villa mit Meerblick und Strandnähe im landschaftlich sehr reizvollen Norden von Korfu

  • 5 of 5

Super Villa mit Meerblick und Strandnähe im landschaftlich sehr reizvollen Nordosten von Korfu.

Tolle ruhige Lage am Hang mit Meerblick nach Korfu-Stadt und Albanien, Südlage, große Villa, super Pool. Sehr sauber und gepflegt.

Kleiner Strand (Glyfa-Beach) mit Taverne in 5min Fußweg-Entfernung, weitere Strände und viele Tavernen in der näheren (5-10km) Umgebung.

Nordkorfu gut geeignet für kleine Wanderungen, Strandtage und landschaftliche Erkundungen. Mietwagen empfehlenswert.

Korfu-Stadt in 40min per PKW erreichbar.

Sehr herzlicher Empfang durch Vermieter mit vorbereitetem Abendbrot (Mousaka, finger foods, Wein), später morgendliche Gebäcküberraschung.
