About the property

Villa Loukia at Kelia, luxury villa, in Walking Distance of Kassiopi, Corfu - Peaceful, very Private Location, EOT Reg.

Villa Loukia has been extended and up-dated over the past 3 winters. For 2018 all 3 bedrooms have been re-tiled and all the en-suite bathrooms are new.

The master bedroom has been extended to create a 'master suite' with a sofa bed at one end for those with young children. There is also ample room for a travel cot too. The new, luxurious bathroom has a bath and separate shower. It has great lighting, courtesy night lights, extraction fan, heated mirror and a shaving mirror.

The 'Blue' Bedroom and bathroom have been re-modelled so that the twin beds (can be made up as a double) are opposite the amazing view, the floor is the same gorgeous tiles as the master, the bathroom is larger than it used to be and really luxurious with a wet-room style shower, loads of modern lighting, automatic night lights, heated mirror and magnified shaving mirror. All the details you could ever need.

Downstairs is the Orange Bedroom and bathroom which has been upgraded to the same standard as the other two bedrooms/bathrooms. It has the advantage of having french windows that lead out on to the terrace and pool.

The whole of the living area has also been re-tiled to match the rest of the property and extended with a fantastic 'picture' window that takes in the view across Avlaki to Albania beyond. This gives a wonderful indoor dining area for low season.

We are really pleased with the results of the all the work we have done an guests seem just as pleased!

Villa Loukia is located in a stunning position, nestled into the quiet olive covered hillside above Kassiopi in the hamlet of Kelia. The views from the villa across the bay of Avalaki and to Albania beyond are truly stunning. The property was new for 2008, having been bought by an English family with many years experience of holidaying in Corfu. Attention has therefore been paid to equipping the villa with all the necessary equipment for a relaxing and happy holiday whilst making sure it remains comfortable and practical for both couples and families alike. The villa is also equipped with items such as hairdryers and beach towels in order to reduce the need for two much expensive baggage on the flight over. Also for guest convenience every room has a 3 pin English socket as well as the standard 2-pin and USB sockets. No need to bring adapters.

The location is quiet and private - away from other properties - however unlike many villas in NE Corfu, the situation above Kassiopi means that it is possible to walk (1 km - 10-15 mins) to shops/restaurants in the evening, leaving the car at home. The nearest supermarket is just 5 mins walk or 2 mins in the car. The famous village of Kalami and the lovely secluded coves of that area is just a 10-15 mins drive. The pool is large (5m x 10m) and in 2015 we added heating which has been loved by guests using the villa in low season. Look on the internet for our full Website (unable to share link on this site) for more details on the Villa and my contact details (Lucy Rickman) if you would rather discuss the villa direct.

About Lucy Rickman

My husband Nick and I (Lucy) have run a business in England for the past 30 years. We have been visiting Corfu regularly since the children were small. Once we discovered Corfu nowhere else seemed to match it as it worked for us as a perfect holiday destination - quiet, peaceful, beautiful views, secluded bays, good water sports, friendly people and plenty of sun. Even as the children got older, NE Corfu was still the perfect destination - it really does cater for everyone in the family.

Lucy Rickman purchased this villa in 2007

Why Lucy Rickman chose Kassopaia

We literally just stumbled across Villa Loukia whilst on holiday in 2007 and it really was a case of love at first sight. The house was nearing completion but the outside was a complete builder's site and there was no pool. Perhaps it was the fact that the children were beginning to leave home that influenced us into deciding that it was time for a new adventure. Buying a house in Corfu had not been our plan but certainly since making the decision to allow our hearts to rule our heads we have not looked back. We completed in December 2007 and then had a VERY stressful 4 months getting the outside finished, pool constructed, snags repaired, house furnished etc - all from my computer in England and just in time for the 2008 season. In true Greek style it was ready with minutes to spare!

What makes this villa unique

Villa Loukia is unusual for NE Corfu because although set in a secluded position in tranquil olive groves, away from other properties, it is also in walking distance of the village of Kassiopi. This is a real bonus as our past experience showed us that with the majority of villas we HAD to drive to the tavernas at night.

Using the experience we gained over the years we also wanted to make sure that the villa was well equipped with everything you might want on holiday and that the kitchen was such that you could actually cook in it (if you want to)!

The views from Villa Loukia are stunning & it is the location and setting of the house that we fell in love with. Our guests to date all agree!

I add blog up-dates to the villa website if you want more information on our adventure.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We came for tranquility and that is exactly what we got. The villa is exactly right for families - everything is well thought out. Some marvelous places to eat in town and very well priced. Thank you Lucy for letting us stay and also to Julia for all her help with the car. We would like to return in the future. Many thanks. :)

Villa de rêve avec une vue exceptionnelle

  • 5 of 5

La maison est magnifique, confortable, spacieuse et aménagée avec beaucoup de goût. Les vues sur la côte et l'Albanie toute proche sont saisissantes. On ne se lasse pas de passer d'une terrasse à l'autre pour profiter du paysage. Loin des grands complexes touristiques, Kassiopi est un joli petit port à proximité de nombreuses criques, quasi désertes en cette saison. Nous n'étions qu'en avril et nos filles sont frileuses , nous ne pensions pas profiter autant de la piscine et pourtant! Il faut dire que la météo était clémente et la piscine bien chauffée. Lucy semble avoir tout prévu, du moindre petit équipement dans la maison jusqu'aux conseils pour les restaurants et les plages. Nous recommandons cette villa sans aucune hésitation : aussi bien pour la qualité des prestations de la maison, le site que l'accueil des propriétaires.

Wonderful villa in a beautiful area of Corfu

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday at Villa Loukia.

The villa itself surpassed all our expectations, it was beautiful, spotlessly clean, completely private and the views breathtaking. Set in an olive grove, the butterflies, birds and Spring flowers created a unique charm.

Lucy was extremely helpful in providing directions to the villa and provided recommendations for places to eat and things to do. We had some great meals out and the local supermarkets provided everything we needed. we loved a trip to Corfu Town and also hired a boat for the day which was a highlight.

Our family of four felt looked after wherever we went and Kassiopi itself had a friendly and relaxed ambience.

We would absolutely recommend the villa.

Thank you for a memorable holiday.

Villa Loukia is a fabulous villa in a stunning location - truly 5 star luxury!

  • 5 of 5

As a group of five older adults, we wanted a peaceful holiday in luxurious accommodation and in a stunning location - Villa Loukia certainly ticked every box and more! Lucy really has put a lot of time and thought into her client's needs and provides everything you could need to enjoy a fantastic holiday. This is a spacious and luxurious villa situated in a quiet location, from which it is easy to visit and enjoy the many local beaches and attractions, and with plenty of shops, supermarkets and restaurants close by. Nothing was too much trouble for Lucy and her team, including when we asked for the temperature on the heated pool to be increased when we found it a bit cool for our ancient bones.

We have no hesitation in recommending staying at Villa Loukia and we will definitely come back again!

Villa Loukia is currently undergoing more improvements once again - bedroom & bathroom 3 will match the standard of the other two in the next few weeks.

Superb villa and location

  • 5 of 5

This villa never fails to please. We have been several times and can't get enough of it. The recent changes to the bedrooms and bathrooms are even more stylish than before. Such supeb quality. The picture window in the living area offers breathtaking views over the sea to the Albanian landscape. Fantastic location close to the beach and some top class restaurants. I can't praise this villa enough. Fabulous holiday.

Beautiful relaxing villa with outstanding views

  • 5 of 5

Second visit to Villa Loukia as we enjoyed our first so much. Great location just 2 mins from Kassiopi - close enough for convenience, far enough away for seclusion and stunning views. We love this villa - beautifully designed, comfortable and perfect for spending long days by the pool. In fact, we hardly ventured out - very well appointed kitchen meant we could cook lovely meals at home and eat on the terrace - we figured no restaurant on the island would have views as good as these! Having said that would recommend morning coffee down by the harbor in Kassiopi, and Tavernaki restaurant in harbor is great for dinner with sunset.

On practical note, the villa is absolutely as described, very clean and well maintained, with helpful local information and owner's tips on what to do and see while you're there. Would happily recommend this villa to anyone.

Nearest Airport
36 Kilometres
Corfu Airport
Car: recommended

Special interest holidays:

Corfu is very popular with walkers in spring, early summer and autumn. Comfortable climate and lovely scenery, so reminiscent of Gerald Durrell's 'My family and other Animals', attracts walkers at this time of year. Walking in Corfu is both relaxing and a lovely way to unwind by taking in the beautiful surroundings of the countryside with its lush green scenery and numerous wild flowers before the heat of summer. The flora and fauna explosion of spring have to be seen to be fully appreciated and as a backdrop to a relaxed walk nothing could be better to unwind and enjoy this time of year on the island.


Port of Kassiopi is 10-15 min walk. All the unspoilt beaches of the NE coast are within a 10-20 minute drive. Even in August it is possible to find secluded beaches where you can be on your own! Highly recommended - the Eucalyptus lined cove of Chouchoulio, Gialiskari and Agni (best Tavernas on Corfu) or Kalamaki for sand and shallow water for small children.


Easyjet flies to Corfu from 1st April to end October direct from Gatwick daily. Other airlines are Ryanair, Monarch, Flybe, Thomas Cook, Olympic and Aegean. The airport at Corfu Town is a 1 hour drive away. Car hire is advised but not essential. Car hire pick up and drop off available from the airport.


The delightful Venetian Capital, Corfu Town, is situated a 1 hour drive away (approx 40km). It can also be reached by boat and bus. Highly recommended.

Kassiopi 1.5km.

Further Details:

Kelia is a small, tranquil hamlet of houses, spread out through the olive groves approximately 1km from the main road.

Kassiopi is a charming little fishing village, with a traditional port. Tourism has had its influence, but down at the harbour you can still find local fishermen supplying the local restaurants with fresh daily fish. Tavernas, shops, beaches and bars offer something for everyone. Teenagers will appreciate the evening life - with several music bars and 'low key' clubs. It is a safe environment for them to meet other friends.

Water skiing, wake boarding, scuba diving, wind sailing, boat hire all available close by.

Water parks - Aqua Land is the biggest, just west of Corfu Town or the Hydropolis near Acharavi.

Scooter/bike/buggy/rental available in Kassiopi. Numerous boat trips/fishing trips and excursions available locally. Horse riding available on the Avlaki Peninsula.
