Overview

About the property

Villa Olivina near Agios Stephanos, Corfu - Ideally Located Above Avlaki Beach

Olivina is a charming 6-7 bed villa on the North East coast of Corfu,

designed and built five years ago by renowned local architect Dominique

Benier. We are ideally located above Avlaki Beach, 4 km from Kassiopi and

1.5 km from Agios Stephanos. The villa has three comfortable double bedrooms

with bathrooms, and a further sofa bed in the downstairs study suitable for

one adult or two children. The upstairs bedrooms lead out to a wide terrace

with magnificent views across the Corfu Channel. The downstairs bedroom has

its own French windows and peaceful private patio seating area, looking through the olive groves to the mountain. Infinity swimming pool which can be heated in the early months of the season for a small extra cost. Wifi available. Solar powered hot water. Air conditioning throughout.

About Tom Sackville

We are an English couple living in Clapham, South London. We had been renting or staying with friends every summer in Corfu, and were fascinated by its charm, when about 6 years ago, we were by chance offered a wonderful piece of land. It was part of a gently sloping olive grove in an ideal location overlooking the sea, and we could not resist. With a lot of help from the Greek banks we eventually built Olivina. We are always happy for to others to share our Corfu home, and hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.

Gorgeous villa with stunning views - you won't be

  • 5 of 5

We arrived in the dark and were blown away by the view the following morning. Looking directly over the Ionian Sea to Albania and beyond is an amazing sight and something that we never got used to. The infinity pool was clean and well maintained and fabulously luxurious with the different levels and steps.

The villa itself was beautifully clean and attended to regularly with clean linen and towels at during our stay. There is plenty of space for a family to either be together or give each other some space and the cooking facilities were great - with an incredibly easy to use gas BBQ.

The outside spaces are perfectly designed with a huge table for meals etc at the entrance to the kitchen.

We had a aspiring wildlife expert/son with us and he had a lovely time around the villa and in the lanes spotting tortoises amongst the many other weird and wonderful native fauna.

We used the local supermarket and adjoining bakery every day and they are lovely people who can't do enough to help. San Stephanos is just a couple of kms away and is the stereo typical beautiful Greek seaside village. Utterly gorgeous and with some of the best food we tasted on the island.

Our only issue was with the typically Greek WIFI that let us down more often than not, which did create some problems when running a business whilst away, but that is to be expected in Greece. The 3G was adequate and we used the phone's hotspots for urgent work.

Overall, we loved it, would recommend it to anyone and will definitely be back. 5* from us - The Browns
