St Stephano Estate is an ultra-luxury villa in Corfu, set above a private bay near San Stefanos harbour. This family-friendly villa has seven bedrooms, an infinity pool and several terraces with sweeping sea views. In high season it’s fully serviced by a team of trained staff, including a private chef.
This estate enjoys an idyllic setting on Corfu’s east coast between two headlands. From the gardens, a winding paved path leads down to a secluded beach. This hidden gem is only accessible from the villa or from the sea, so you’re likely to have it to yourself. You could easily spend a day or evening here, thanks to the beach house, barbecue, fridge and shower, before heading back to the villa via the lit pathway. Or you can moor a boat of up to 80ft here and set off exploring the bays and coves along the coast.
The villa is a 15-minute walk to the lovely harbour of San Stephanos (also known as Agios Stephanos). While still a traditional fishing village at heart, it’s welcoming to visitors, with shops, restaurants and a child-friendly sandy beach. St Stephano Estate is a 40-minute drive from the island’s capital, Corfu Town, and its airport.
This grand villa has a contemporary elegance that is both impressive and comfortable. The bright and spacious interior is finished to a very high standard with pale imported marble, dark wood and sumptuous fabrics. There is air conditioning and Wi-Fi throughout the property, and all bedrooms have en suite bathrooms. The master suite has a double sunken tub in its en suite, plus a dressing room and private balcony. The VIP suite has its own sitting room and a small sofa bed making it perfect for a couple with a young child. There are expansive terraces either side of the property, one with an ornate stone fountain, and one with a 12m infinity pool. There are also covered outdoor sitting and dining areas, and a barbecue.
At St Stephano Estate, you’ll be delighted by the attention to detail. From the fresh flowers and welcome pack when you arrive, to the evening turndown and candles lit at sunset, everything is in place for a heavenly holiday. There is a housekeeper six days a week, with new linens and towels delivered twice weekly. Visit in high season (1 May – 17 September), and your private chef and host will greet you with champagne and canapés, and prepare and serve meals tailored to you throughout your stay. During high season a professional concierge service is also included.
St Stephano Estate is a superb Corfu villa for families or groups of up to 14 guests looking for luxury catered accommodation. With excellent facilities, spectacular sea views and direct access to the sea, guests can savour the beauty of this island in complete peace and privacy.
