Villa George, Corfu, Greece
This property is part of our exclusive portfolio. Find out more here.
With its handsome neoclassical design, its generously proportioned interiors, its sweeping sea-view terraces, and its mature landscaped gardens, Villa George offers laid-back elegance, supreme comfort, and an enviable position on Corfu's highly sought-after northeast coast. If you're looking for a villa with pretty much everything, you may have just found it.
Inside: accommodation at Villa George is arranged over three floors. The main entrance leads into a welcoming hallway, which, via a large rounded glass door, offers guests their first tantalising views of the gardens and Avlaki Bay. This space is the true hub of the home, as it provides access to the property’s different areas.
Steps on the left of the hallway lead up, under an arch supported by a pair of columns, into the voluminous living room, which is furnished with a long sink-in sofa and armchairs, and enlivened by a variety of colourful bibelots and artworks. French windows open out onto terraces on two sides, an impressive fireplace sits at one end, and the overall sensation is of quality, authenticity, and easy charm.
The living room’s lofty, vaulted wooden ceilings are an essential design feature of Villa George's communal areas, both inside and out. Painted in a delicate light colour to create an airy, luminous ambience inside, they extend out to support the terracotta-tiled roofs of the shady porticos that look out over the terraces, the pool and the sea.
A wide opening to one side of the fireplace leads into the generously sized, well-equipped kitchen. A large breakfast bar-central island allows the cooks in your group to enjoy some company while preparing meals, and two sets of French doors, one on either side, open out onto a pair of al fresco dining areas.
Back in the entrance hall, a corridor leads to the three bedrooms on the ground floor:
• two doubles with en-suite shower rooms, sea views, and access to the surrounding terraces
• a twin with en-suite shower room and terrace access
Stairs from the hallway lead up to the first floor, which is entirely given over to the main bedroom, a spacious double with high wood-beamed ceilings, sea views, a private panoramic terrace and a large en-suite bathroom with separate tub and walk-in shower.
The remaining accommodation at Villa George is located on the lower ground floor and accessed via a staircase from the hallway. Here there is a twin bedroom with en-suite shower room, a media room with sofas and a large TV, and a gym.
Outside: a curvaceous driveway sweeps through the grounds and up to the villa, which is immersed in extensive private gardens. Bushy borders, planted with flowering plants, manicured hedging and aromatic shrubs, delimit the paths and the wrap-around terraces, mature trees provide shade and a sense of seclusion, trailing rosemary cascades down dry stone walls, and bougainvillea, jasmine and honeysuckle tangle around the portico columns, scenting the air with their vivid perfumes.
The living area and kitchen flow out onto terraces on both sides of the house. On one side is a dining area, while on the other, the sea-facing side, a pair of shady porticos with beguiling views out to Avlaki Bay offer convivial space for sitting and dining. A couple of steps down from here is a terrace furnished with a pair of sofas. Ornamental paving in local stone and smooth cobbles highlights the owners' attention to detail and sense of style.
This terrace, which is accessed by the ground floor bedrooms, flows down to the star attraction of Villa George's outdoor areas, the splendid heatable infinity pool, whose wide, shallow steps not only provide easy access but also partially submerged shelfs for aquatic wallowing. To one side of the pool is a decked area, while to the other is a large shady gazebo, furnished with garden sofas.
The views are splendid from many areas of the grounds, but arguably the best vantage point is the main bedroom's private first floor terrace, which looks over Avlaki Bay, the emerald green promontory of Eremitis Nature Reserve and the Straits of Corfu.
Finally, although not technically part of the property, the lovely little bay below the house is a 120m walk from the garden gate and beautiful Coyevinas beach is just 200m from Villa George's main gates, giving guests the best of all possible worlds.
