About the property

Quiet and Secluded Two Bedroom Spacious Villa With Private Pool and Stunning Views Close to Resort

Looking for tranquility, a bit of luxury and fabulous views? Wake up to the view along the valley and out to sea and drink your morning coffee on the bedroom balcony then return in the cool of the evening to sip your wine and watch amazing sunsets over the distant islands.

Set amongst olive groves, Eliovassilema (Sunset Villa) is perfect for couples or small families who want a holiday that is relaxing and peaceful yet close to local amenities. Set on the north coast of the island you are 5 minutes drive from Acharavi with its shops and restaurants. Your holiday villa successfully combines traditional Corfiot architecture with a more contemporary, luxurious interior. It has a large kitchen, dining and living area and is fully air conditioned. Outside you will enjoy a large sun terrace with a barbecue - and of course your own private infinity pool. As they face west you can enjoying sunshine all day, but escape into the cool if you wish. Come and share the dream!

About Nick & Jane

We both have busy lives, living and working in London and raising children. We always hoped to one day buy a property in Spain, but visited Corfu and within our two week holiday not only had we fallen in love with the island, but had fallen in love with the plot of land where the villa now stands. The villa was completed in 2008.

Why Nick & Jane chose Retzepi

It is so peaceful - not just the location, but the views across the green valley and out to sea and of the sunset (which is why we named the villa with the Greek word for sunset). For us, it's the perfect respite from our busy lives - especially as it's more luxurious than our own home!

What makes this villa unique

Rest, relaxation (we always sleep incredibly well) and privacy and a great base to explore from. We most like reading by and dipping in and out of the pool.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Nick

We are home from a wonderful holiday and just wanted to say thank you for all your help and advice. Not only was the Villa amazing but your help has been fantastic since our first enquiry. We can honestly say, after going to Corfu for the past 10 years, we think our stay at your villa has been our favourite to date and are already thinking about next year.

It's now back to reality but the beauty of that sunset will stick with us forever. We didn't want to leave.

Thanks again Nick.

Peaceful Villa with Amazing Views

  • 5 of 5

The villa was fabulous, very well equipped and really private – we so enjoyed the feeling of peace and tranquility. The pool is perfect, the size and depth is just right.

I must compliment you on the bedding and towels, lovely and crisp, as well as the quality of the kitchen crockery and pots, so nice to use (apart from the frying pan which is sticky!).

Also must mention the books, games and videos – we so seldom sit down and play a game or watch a movie these days, so it’s really nice to have the opportunity to do so. And the candles and all the other little touches too numerous to list, you really have thought of everything.

We enjoyed our walks around the villa, and we saw plenty of wildlife as well as befriending a couple of cats. We saw Common Buzzards flying above the villa pretty much daily and a peregrine falcon as well. One night there was a Beech Marten on the patio, and I think I saw an owl too. We discovered that the bats roost under the porch roof tiles, it was fun to watch them emerge in the evening, and we even saw a snake near the pool room steps.

Definitely top of my list for privacy and comfort, incredible sea views, amazing sunsets - thank you Nick and Jane for making our holiday perfect.

Beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in your beautiful villa which is very well appointed and so tastefully furnished. The relaxing pool area was just what we were looking for with amazing views over the olive groves to the sea. My husband and I very much enjoyed exploring the area and discovering lovely bays and beaches, we also took a boat trip to Corfu town which we enjoyed. Thanks again Nick for letting us commence our holiday on a Friday instead of Saturday. Having both recently retired this was just the quiet chilled out break we were looking for. I will definitely recommend 'Sunset Villa' to friends.

Fabulous family holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Sunset villa is by far the most wonderful villa and setting we have stayed in over 15 years of holidays. It enjoys incredible views over trees and mountains to the sea in a convenient yet totally private location.

The villa itself was spacious and generously equipped, with a good size pool which the kids (6&9) could not keep out of!

There were lots of tavernas and beaches to visit and explore and "Ice Dreams" was a definite bonus for the kids.

It was an absolute pleasure dealing with Nick, who was both friendly and very helpful before and throughout our stay.

Would definitely recommend!

Tranquil home from home villa

  • 5 of 5

Well, what can I say that has not already been said! This villa is up in the mountains near Acharavi, which is only about a 5 minute drive away, with plenty of supermarkets and shops for your stay. The villa itself is home from home, in such a stunning location. Amazing views from every window, if you are looking for peace and tranquility, this is definitely the villa to pick. We were only booked for a week but had wished we could have stayed for two. Our holiday was to relax, and that is what we did! When we did venture out, the local beaches are great, and we also booked ABC Corfu sailing,, which was an awesome way to see the beautiful Corfu coast. We could not recommend this villa enough, and if you book, you will not be disappointed.

Thank you Nick and Jane for letting us use your stunning Villa

Beautiful Villa and lovely Owners

  • 5 of 5

The villa is beautiful, spacious, clean and cozy. It has the most amazing views of the ocean and the mountains. It also very well located, at driving distance from nice beaches and restaurants. We had an amazing time and our little one enjoyed the pool and the big bath equally. Most of all, I can't say enough about Nick's kindness and disposition to help us. What a pleasant experience and what a pleasure to hire the house from such a kind person.

Thumbs up in all regards to this beautiful villa!

Amazing villa

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a week at this amazing villa! Sunset Villa is a very fitting name, with fantastic views due to the beautiful setting of this place. The villa itself is extremely spacious, both inside and out. Could not fault anything about this fabulous villa and would recommend to anyone who wants a perfect holiday to Corfu.

Finally, thank you to Nick and Jane, the owners, for being extremely helpful and accommodating, we hope people enjoy this villa as much as we did!

Car: necessary


The nearest beach is Almiros beach which is about 2km from the villa although there are many beaches to explore on the way to Kassiopi and in the coves beyond.


Nearest airport is in Corfu Town about 50 minutes drive. Due to the secluded and elevated position of the villa car hire is essential and will enable you to really explore and appreciate this beautiful island. You can of course do it by boat too! There are several boat hire companies and numerous little bays with tavernas to discover. A return visit to Corfu Town is great by boat from Kassiopi - more fun and no problems parking!


The nearest restaurant is 2km away (you can arrange for them to cook at the villa if you want). Acharavi has several restaurants - but are also many in the surrounding mountains.

Further Details:

The charm and colour of Venetian Corfu Town is well worth a visit as is the beautiful bay of Kalami.

A boat is recommended as a great way to explore the stunning coastline where you could enjoy a secluded swim at one of the many beautiful bays or stop off to relax over a long lunch at one of the many tavernas.
