Athena House is one of two ultra luxury villas situated on the exclusive Cassina-Athena Estate in north-east Corfu. This prestigious villa is located on the water’s edge with direct access to the sea via the estate’s shared jetty. Athena House accommodates 6 people in style with far-reaching views of the Ionian sea, wrap around terraces, a private infinity pool, knowledgeable concierge, housekeeping 6 days a week and a cook on request.
You can travel to Athena House from the airport by boat or car. It’s 50 minutes from Corfu International, which you can fly to directly from the UK in season and via Athens out of season. The villa is a 10 to 15-minute walk away from the bars and restaurants in the lovely harbour town of Kassiopi. For those wanting to exercise, the villas has kayaks, paddleboards/ wakeboards and snorkelling equipment or you can play golf at the club within the hour. Boat hire is highly recommended and can be arranged through the concierge. This allows you to explore the waterside tavernas and hidden away coves of Corfu and moor at the jetty, shared with the other villa on the estate.
If you would rather stay put, the estate has something to suit everyone’s needs. You can play a game of boules on the court, relax in the cinema room, light the barbeque, enjoy a drink on the wrap around terrace and suntan or swim in your own private infinity pool. While you’re there why not listen to music on the Sonos system and amble around the magnificently manicured gardens?
The house has 3 thoughtfully designed bedrooms. Each has air-conditioning, vanity tables, mosquito screens and nets, as well as soft Egyptian cotton linen, Ortigia products, white waffle dressing gowns and your choice of feather and down or anti-allergen pillows. The thoughtful design extends into the house – making use of a cool and sophisticated neutral palette in the living room, dining room, kitchen and wine cellar. There is a strong Venetian influence complemented by traditional Corfiot features like the fireplace, to create the ultimate in contemporary comfort. This comfort is enhanced by housekeeping, 6 days a week for 4 hours a day, as well as the concierge.
Athena House is a place where you can truly relax. The sea views, the private pool, housekeeping, direct access to the sea from the jetty and more, make this Corfu property one of the most sought after villas for rent– a place to make memories you’ll remember forever.
