Overview

About the property

Private 3 Bedroom Villa, Swimming Pool, Terrace With Sea View And Garden.

Nestling in beautiful rolling hills and countryside in the North West of Corfu is the Silver Olives Villa. Set amongst truly remarkable gardens and approached via an unmade track, Silver Olives is a refurbished country manor house where original features still remain.

The house is laid out as an upside down house with all bedrooms on the entrance level and the living and kitchen on a lower level. Off from the entrance is a small sitting area and the villas bedrooms; a double bedroom with en-suite bathroom, twin bedroom with small en-suite shower and a further double bedroom with full bathroom adjacent, boasting patio doors with access to a sea facing balcony.

All bedrooms are air-conditioned at no extra charge.

Stairs lead down to the lower level. On this level is a sitting room and a large open plan kitchen/dining area which is well equipped for self catering villa holidays. There is a further bathroom located on this level for added convenience. Patio doors lead out to the delightful pool terrace and garden.

The large 10 metre private pool is situated amongst well furnished terraces and there are plenty of areas to choose from to read a good book in total peace!

High walled gardens and well established trees and plants give this property total peace and privacy, whilst still being able to soak up the Corfu sunshine and those spectacular views.

The nearby traditional Corfu village of Magoulades is just a short drive away, where you will find a bakery, a small cafe and a taverna offering authentic dishes. For those wishing to visit the beach, Arillas is a real favourite and there are a selection of tavernas serving up daily catch.

About Eleni Moraiti

By the time Alex decided to build a home on the top of a hill, there was no electricity, no water, not even a road (only a path leading to the nearby monastery).My father was persistent and patient, although the people of the village thought he was rather bizzare.He suceed after many difficulties and a lot of personal work.....To my eyes he has always been unique, by choosing a magical spot away from crowded and touristic places.That's where I spent a happy childhood.

In 2002 the house was fully renovated and since then it functions as a family business.Alex is still there to offer grapes and figs to the guests, takes care of the pool and garden and enjoys his grandchildren every weekend, when they arrive from Corfu town.Every year we like improving our place beacause for us this is not ''just a rented house'', but our home. My parents live there during the winter and we join them in the weekends.

The interior house has a caracter on its own, furnished with old furniture of the ionian islands, mirors and paintings.Warm and cosy, ideal for family and friends.There are two fireplaces where we use to grill meat and sausage with friends in the winter, while we use the barbecue n the summer.

Eleni Moraiti purchased this villa in 1985

Why Eleni Moraiti chose Esperii

The villa has become a very special visiting place to all the guests who have visited us over the years. Precious memories from the serene atmosphere and peaceful environment. Totally unforgettable memories, full of awesome sunsets, beautiful flowers, all adorned by the warm welcome and the hospitality of the 85-year-old Alex, owner of Silver Olives.

In the night one can hear the song of the eurasian scops owl and the cricket.When looking above , the stars seem so close and the galaxy too.Straight ahead the lighthouse of Οthonoi island blinks in the dark, in the meantime to the right the lights of an albanian village are peeking.

In the day if you like walking and you're lucky enough, you may bump into a turtle or a hedgehog!

Wonderful Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time here. It's a beautiful family home, with a fantastic view over the hills, very quiet and peaceful. Lovely pool. The garden and plants are stunning, lovingly watered and tended to by the owner.

Eleni and her family are very warm and welcoming, and when we had a small problem with the air conditioning, arranged someone to come round and fix it immediately.

It's perfect if you want somewhere beautiful and quiet, a genuine family home a bit away from the resorts, near a small town, and beaches, shops, etc are only a 10-15minute drive away.

Thank you Eleni and family - we all had a fantastic time!

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Arrived early June, was worried when booking due to lack of reviews, needn't have worried!

The location, although 'remote' is very peaceful, yet only 5 mins drive from the bakers, and 10 minutes from a supermarket.

We didn't need the aircon much as it was early in the season.

Internet was adequate and stable, extending out to the pool area, although the power went a couple of times during lightening storms. Bandwidth was adequate for streaming Netflix.

The views are stunning, and the gardens are amazing. The photo's do not do the place justice, as nice as they look, the reality is nicer.

The villa itself is comfortable and very clean, and has pretty much everything required for a family for a few weeks. There are lots of places to sit and relax, and watch the lovely sunsets.

Eleni and family, including her dad, are lovely, we had a great meal out with them, a highlight of the trip!

Car is essential, but navigating around is pretty easy a day or so.

Plenty of restaurants around, not expensive!

Lovely villa & gardens, peaceful,

  • 5 of 5

The description of the villa & gardens is perfect, probably bigger than the pictures portray. It is in a remote location which is perfect if you want to get away from the madding crowd & recharge your batteries. Beautiful views across the bay & stunning sunsets. Alex tends to the garden which is "remarkable" - what a paradise! The pool is large, probably the biggest we have had for a private villa. Alex, his wife & his daughter Eleni & her family are lovely & ensure you are made welcome plus will sort any problems immediately, literally! The villa is very well equipped probably due to the fact that they live there out of season. It is very clean, spacious but cosy & keeps cool even when it is baking outside in the sun!

The sat nav took us the shortest route which took 3 hours from the airport!! It took us along the west coast & up unusable roads to the villa! However it only took us an hour back to the airport!! So, ensure you take the central route via Gouvia, Agros then up to Sidari on the north coast. Then take the road through Magoulades to reach the villa. It takes 20 mins from Sidari but the roads are usable by normal car. The last part of the journey is on unmade road for 5 mins. Don't hire a new car!! We hired through Cosmos where you also get a discount. The local village at Arillas is only 15 mins away. Plenty of lovely places to eat & chill out.

Would definitely recommend this villa & would return.
