7'390 - 17'430 euros/weekAvailability & Pricing
In Greek, ataraxia describes a state of serene calmness. As soon as you step over the threshold of this delightful villa you will understand what inspired the owner's choice of name. Wide-open vistas spread out before you, down over the olive tree-carpeted hills to the coast below, and both the interiors and the ample terraced exteriors are imbued with an atmosphere of pure tranquility.
Inside: accommodation at Ataraxia is spread over two floors. The main entrance takes one into first floor and a voluminous living room, whose white walls, lofty wood-beamed ceilings and views out to sea set a blueprint for the rest of the house. Opulent dark blue sofas and armchairs wrap around an ornamental fireplace and four sets of French windows provide seamless access to the panoramic terraces.
To one side, an open arch leads into the splendid kitchen, designed by the chef owner. Featuring a large central island-cum-breakfast bar, bespoke olive-grey cabinetry, quality appliances and direct access to the shaded al fresco dining area, this is an ambience that will fill keen cooks with joy.
To the opposite side of the living room, another opening leads to the first floor sleeping quarters, comprising three double-twin bedrooms, each with sea views and direct access to the terraces running along the entire façade of the house. The first has an en-suite bathroom with separate tub and shower, while the second and third, which are down a few steps from the first, both have en-suite shower rooms.
The remaining accommodation at Ataraxia is on the ground floor. A staircase leads down from the living room to a TV and PlayStation area and gym. The first of the two bedrooms on this floor, a splendid double with four-poster bed and en-suite bathroom with freestanding tub and walk-in shower, is accessed from the TV snug and games room.
The second ground floor bedrooms, a double-twin with en-suite shower room, is separated from the former by a little hallway and may be accessed either externally from the terrace or via the first bedroom, which also has a door into the hallway. This provides a great level of flexibility: if two couples are staying in this section of the house, they are completely private; if parents are staying with children here, access between the two rooms is easy. Both bedrooms spill out onto to a panoramic terrace which is connected via steps to the first floor terraces.
Outside: Ataraxia maximises its stunning views with a series of connecting terraces. All the bedrooms and the living room open out onto multi-level terraces that flow along the entire facade of the villa. Steps link the various levels, and each different section is furnished for sitting, lounging and taking in the vistas over Avlaki Bay, Kassiopi, the sea and, across the Channel of Corfu, Albania.
At one end, accessed from the kitchen and the living room, is a delightful shaded outdoor dining area, where you will no doubt take many of your meals. Just around the corner from this is yet another al fresco living area, which is also accessed from the kitchen.
A few steps lead down from here to the gorgeous pool area where, apart from the irresistible infinity pool, is a shower/changing room and WC, and a well-equipped outdoor kitchen with built-in barbecue, wood oven, sink, preparation area, fridge and dining table - all you could possibly need for long convivial dinners under the stars.
