Spacious, in a quiet location, this house is particularly suitable for families of mixed ages, with most of the accommodation and facilities all on one level. In a peaceful setting on the mountainside, it enjoys wonderful views.
The lovely beaches, the entertainments, watersports and other amenities of the Kassiopi area, are conveniently close to Villa Knedros, but do not in any way intrude upon the sense of seclusion induced by the setting of this attractive house. Situated where the tranquil olive groves give way to the rocky outcrops and wilder scenery of the mountainside, little disturbs the peace but the sound of sheep-bells and the sough of the mountain breeze, laden with the scent of herbs, in the trees. The area is superb for walking, with ancient paths linking long-abandoned hamlets dating back to Venetian and Byzantine times.
In spring and autumn, the area is carpeted with wild flowers of every kind. Tall old cypress trees stand sentinel at the gate of the pretty, peach-coloured house, which, while incorporating the traditional colours and architectural features of the island’s old houses, is thoroughly modern. Honey-toned stone terraces frame a pleasant pool, and a shaded outdoor dining-area with barbecue, all on the same level as the villa’s ground floor, make this a delightful, practical focus for holiday relaxation and outdoor living. You can sunbathe, swim, and enjoy al fresco meals in privacy, with only the occasional curious sheep to peer over the wall!
The master bedroom occupies the whole of the top floor, and from its covered terrace and that of the downstairs bedrooms there is a glorious view down across terraces to Imerolia Bay and its harbour, along the north coast of Corfu and across to the mountains of Albania. An ideal family house for every season.
