A gorgeous four-bedroom villa designed for outdoor living. Nestled in the hills above San Stephano in Corfu, this luxury property has an infinity pool, serene sea views and includes a private chef.
Villa Barbara is located in the sought-after north east region of Corfu, known for its stunning natural landscape and peaceful ambience. The villa is about an hour’s drive north from Corfu Airport and a world away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. The house stands amongst old olive trees and bright wildflowers with wonderful views across the tranquil Ionian Sea to the Albanian mountains. From here, it’s a short drive down to San Stephano, a charming village dotted around a horseshoe bay. At the harbour you can rent a boat to explore the coastline, or simply relax in a traditional taverna and watch the sail boats go by. The beautiful beaches of Kerasia and Avlaki are also just a short drive away.
This inviting villa is made from traditional Corfiot honey-coloured stone and surrounded by terraces that are perfect for entertaining. Inside, the stone blends with natural wood features and crisp white furnishings to create a feeling of utter calm. The open plan living area flows from the modern kitchen, through the dining area to the comfortable sitting room. Here, large French doors open out onto the pool terrace and the magnificent view. There is a covered dining terrace next to the infinity pool and a cosy outdoor lounge area next to the house. For memorable meals, make the most of the villa’s vegetable garden and the wood-fired barbeque. On the ground floor there is a double bedroom with an ensuite and a twin room with a guest shower room, and there are a further two bedrooms on the top floor; a master bedroom and twin bedroom, both with ensuites. If you can tear yourself away from the sumptuous bedlinens, early risers will be treated to the most beautiful view of the sun rising over the mountain tops.
Barbara is well equipped for guests’ comfort and entertainment. It’s fully air-conditioned with WiFi access, Netflix and a table tennis table. The excellent service includes a concierge, a chef who prepares breakfast and lunch or dinner six days a week, and a cleaning service.
This family-friendly residence has all the ingredients for a relaxing Corfu holiday; wonderful outdoor spaces, a private pool and a team of staff to ensure you needn’t lift a finger. And all in the most peaceful surroundings with those inspiring sea views.
