About the property

Outstanding Villa near Sinies above Kerasia beach

Vilelmina is. make for a perfect relaxing holiday with breathtaking views above Kerasia beach, above Rothschild`s Estate and the corfu channel. From the balcony views you will realise the reason why Vilelmina is the place will make your holidays unforgettable.At small distance you have quite a few amenities,like supermarket,bakery,pastry shop,caffes,e.t.c.

Vilelmina is superbly located high on a hillside above St Stephanos and Kerasia. The villa gives you the feeling you are flying - with an amazing view on three sides. The large swimming pool has very comfortable sunbathing area. The views are almost indescribably lovely, down over the green headlands of Corfu, on across the silken blue sheet of the Corfu Channel, into the depths of the Albanian coastal mountains and hills. The villa is light, spacious and air-conditioned with 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.

From the pool and the terrace there is the most sublime view - the one that brings people back to this part of Corfu again and again. It encompasses the green headlands and sapphire bays of Kerasia and the Rothschild estate, the yachts at anchor in the horseshoe-shaped harbour of St. Stephano, and the silent hills and mountains of Albania opposite.

The beautiful swimming pool is surrounded by broad paved terraces for sunbathing, and overlooks wonderful views. It is located below the villa, and accessed by a flight of stone-flagged steps. There is another unit below which is used from the owner`s parents.

About Leonidas Pouliasis

I am from Corfu and i live with my family 3km away from Vilelmina. I always work in this area and I am very happy that I have met so many good customers that became very good friends

Leonidas Pouliasis purchased this villa in 2009

Why Leonidas Pouliasis chose Greece

Before many years we had a dream, to build a nice property in my grandfather`s land. The location was unique and we decided to do our best to make our dream come true. So after many years of savings and very very hard work we managed to finish it 6 years ago. Every piece of the house it`s a piece of ourselves and now our only will is to do our best for our customers and make them feel like home and more than that if possible!

What makes this villa unique

Vilelmina is located 200 meters from traditional Sinies vlllage right on the hillside of kerasia beach which is next to San stefanos and has breathtaking views over the corfu channel. From the pool & the balconies you will have the feeling of flying while you are enjoying a romantic dinner or a nice cold glass of wine. It is in a very quiet place and nearby Karasia, San Stefanos, Avlaki, Kalami etc. At any of those places you can swim or enjoy a nice meal and drink. In a very short distance 200m is Sinies village where you can buy from the supermarket all you need or to enjoy your coffee at the two local cafes. On your way back you can buy some cakes from the candy shop nearby. That`s what make the place special, it`s in a perfect location, all the amenities in a short distance but far enough to enjoy peace and privacy on your staying.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed in an apartment in Villa Vilelmina Corfu for 10 days in September, 2012. We were given excellent instructions on driving there from Corfu airport .

The apartment itself is very comfortable and has all that is needed for a stay and the

owners are very friendly and available for advice and deal quickly with any difficulties. It is surrounded by olive groves and very quiet but is conveniently situated. Around 5 minutes walk away there is a well-stocked supermarket, pleasant taverna and the stop for the bus which runs a few times a day between Kassiope and Corfu town. The nearest beach is about a 20-30 minute walk downhill through olive groves and also has a good taverna. One could thus get by without a car but it would be limiting.

But what really makes the place stand out is the stunning view from the balcony to the coast below and across to the mountains of Albania; indeed we found it difficult to tear ourselves away from the view and the very-well maintained pool.

We had a really good holiday in Villa Vilelmina and hope we can return.

The accommodation was exceptional and the views were stunning. We enjoyed the chance to cook outside on the tailor made BBQ. The quiet location gave us great peace and tranquility. I will recommend this villa to all my friends and family..

Very comfortable apartment with stunning sea views

  • 4 of 5

This is a very comfortable and well equipped apartment, with lovely sea views towards Albania. The infinity pool (with plentiful loungers) is a big plus, although being at a much lower level there are lots of steps to negotiate. Good exercise if you've forgotten the suntan lotion! Parents with young children might find this a disadvantage, as would people with disabilities. When eating in, we took our meals on the spacious terrace. This is in shade for most of the day, being under the Villelmina House terrace, which would be a bonus during the hottest months, although it might feel a bit cool in the evenings earlier in the year.

The property is built to a very high standard and is very well maintained by Leo and Katerina. We had a power cut during our stay and they could not have been more helpful. The bathroom even has a shower curtain, quite unusual in Corfu!

Although there is a shop and a small taverna within 200 metres or so, a car is essential if one wants more choice (there is a first class taverna and an excellent shop within a 10 or 15 minute drive). Getting to the local beaches also requires a car, unless one wants to stagger down a rugged track and puff one's way back up again.

To sum up: the apartment itself is excellent and the owners delightful, but a car is necessary. One can't just stroll down to the beach or out to eat.

Hammer Apartment mit sensationellem Blick

  • 5 of 5

Wir warem im September für 14 Tage dort. Zuerst waren wir etwas skeptisch, ob das Apartment wirklich so toll ist, wie auf den Bildern. Jetzt können wir sagen: Es ist besser! ;-). Super Ausstattung, besser als das, was wir in Griechenland bisher gewohnt waren. Sehr gepflegter Zustand der Villa, nichts zu bemängeln (es gab sogar Föhn und Bügeleisen dort). Der Ausblick bis nach Alabanien rüber ist genial - jeden Morgen hatten wir fantastische Sonnenaufgänge dort - dazu gemütlich auf der Terasse mit einem Kaffee. Im Pool schwimmen und dabei übers Meer schauen, was will man mehr? Der Vermieter ist überaus aufmerksam und sehr nett. Das fängt mit einer perfekten bebilderten Anfahrtbeschreibung an und hört mit einem schnellen E-Mail Kontakt nicht auf. Reinigung etc. klappt perfekt. In der Villa sind insgesamt drei Wohnungen, von den anderen Besuchern dürfte man in der Regel kaum etwas mitbekommen.

Die Villa liegt hinter einem kleinen Hügel, daher bekommt man von der Straße absolut nichts mit. Eine Taverne mit hausgemachten Speisen ist ganz in der Nähe, ein kleiner Supermarkt auch. Als Ausgangspunkt für Wanderungen ist der Ort ideal, mit dem Auto erreicht man viele Tourenstartpunkte in kurzer Zeit. Ohne Auto geht hier übrigens nichts - das sollte man unbedingt haben. Ein kleiner Hinweis: Mal eben zum Strand laufen ist eher schwierig, die Tour dauert zu Fuß doch erheblich länger....

Wir kommen auf jeden Fall wieder - spätestens in 2012.
