About the property

San Stefano area, 4Bdrm, PrivatePool, HEATED Jacuzzi, Ideal for WINTER, Secluded, Quite, Excellent Views

Spring OFFER: -20% on listed prices for February, March & April 2017 (limited time offer).

Maro is a secluded villa overlooking the bay of Agios Stefanos (San Stefano). The plenty of indoor and outdoor spaces, the gardens, the infinity edge pool, the large outdoor heated jacuzzi and many other facilities make villa Maro ideal for all year round holidays and for banquets.

Maro is built on three levels and is divided in two separate parts: the front - public space and the back - private space. The middle level accommodates the living/dining room, the kitchen, a common bathroom and a master bedroom with its own bathroom and semi-private yard.

The upper level accommodates a family room, one master bedroom with a private bathroom - indoor jacuzzi and two twin bed bedrooms with private bathrooms. One of these bedrooms has a small private garden.

The lower level of the house accommodates the pool, the heated external jacuzzi, a cabana located under stone arches, a bathroom, an outdoor small kitchen and the BBQ. The shape and structure of the pool have been inspired by the landscape and the view. The infinite edge leaves the crystal body of the pool water as the only barrier between the observer and the view.

The house has plenty of semi-outdoor spaces, verandas and yards offering quiet and seclusion to the tenants.

Maro Villa Holiday

  • 5 of 5

This Villa fulfilled all expectations. It is beautifully maintained and the facilities are excellent. The infinity pool afforded amazing views and the heated jacuzzi is an added bonus.

The village of San Stefanos is well worth a visit with excellent tavernas supermarkets and gift shops. Best of all are the friendly and welcoming people of the village. The owner of the Villa is a charming and helpful Corfiot who will make you feel very welcome. I have already recommended the Villa to friends and relatives. I look forward to my next visit.

Marvelous Maro - the perfect spot

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Maro so many times - at all different times of the year - and it never ceases to delight us. So many different nooks and crannies where you can relax, eat, sunbathe - and then there's the view. The first time we went, we honestly felt the photos DIDN'T do the villa justice!

Driving out of Corfu town and heading up the east coast you have a strong feeling of leaving civilisation further and further behind you. Then you turn off the main road and start your descent towards the delightful harbour of Agios Stefanos. The villa is halfway down and has a breathtaking view of both the harbour, the sea and the rolling hills of Albania beyond. The peace is palpable and the infinity pool only makes the place feel impossible to leave. Sitting on the balcony at night is magical.

The villa is extremely clean including the bed linen. The layout was exactly as we expected and perfect to allow people to relax either together or separately.

The area is full of lovely restaurants and beaches. Down by the harbour we particularly love eating in the evenings at Eucalyptus and Fagopotion. Or you can drive on through Agios Stefanos until you end up in Kerasia and the taverna there. Perfect for lunch. Another lovely lunch can be had if you drive a bit further south to Kouloura. The gradients make driving quite tricky but the food is worth it - the courgette fritters are delicious!

If you can get a boat, beach (and taverna) hopping is probably the most fun way to experience the coastline. If you save up, the meals at Agni Taverna are actually well worth it. Especially their prawns.

Driving north, Avlaki is an uninviting, rather windswept, beachfront BUT if you carry on up the other side, there is a supermarket (Nicolas') at the junction with the main road that has the tastiest tzatziki on the island (dare I say continent??) Get a tubful.

I cannot recommend the place highly enough - except that might mean it won't be available for us!

Perfect for family and friends

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful villa over looking the beautiful bay of San Stefanos, ideal for a holiday with a group of friends or perfect family location as the villa is big enough to party all together but also have space space to enjoy a good book in peace and quiet. Located up the hill from the village so you are close enough to pop down for dinner but far enough away to feel secluded. The pool is epic and perfect for small children to enjoy as well as the big kid in all of us!

Beautiful, with the most amazing view

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the best villas in the area. We visit annually as it offers us comfort, quality, a fabulous pool and view. It is safe for children and due to its layout you never feel on top of one another even when the villa is full. It is very well maintained and the owner is charming as are his staff, it feels like we are now part of their family. I would highly recommend this villa.

A Beautiful Villa with the Best View in Corfu!

  • 5 of 5

The second time we stayed here following our honeymoon in 2015. Both occasions were shared with three other couples. The villa has everything you could hope for and the owner Giannis is really helpful and friendly. Beautiful infinity pool with Jacuzzi alongside and spectacular views of Agios Stefanos and Albania. Highly recommended! David and Cathie, Manchester

Notes:

  • Outside: Maro is built on a sloping hill and the land has been terraced in five levels. The house is located in the middle three levels whereas the other two are reserved for fruit tree gardens. The swimming pool is located on the lower level of the house; its shape and structure have been inspired by the landscape and the views. The infinite edge leaves the crystal body of the pool water as the only barrier between the observer and the view. Occasionally water overflows from the higher located outdoors jacuzzi into the pool creating a calming sound. The pool is 12.5 m long and on average 6 m wide (varying from 3 to 9 m). The same level accommodates an outdoors kitchen and BBQ. A large wooden table and two benches are suited for outdoors dinning. Plenty of flowers and more than thirty five fruit trees decorate the olive grove in which Maro is built. There are plenty of small spaces and little gardens that offer seclusion and relaxation. Utility Room: Washing machine, dryer, iron, ironing board. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Towels, pool towels and linen are included. The maid service is done three times a week and the towels and linen are changed twice a week. Other: There is a family room at the 1st floor with a desk and could function as an office. The family room has its own veranda.
