Occupying a hillside that offers total seclusion yet is only a few minutes away from the village of Agios Markos and just 20 minutes from beautiful/historic Corfu town , Villa Olivia is surrounded by century-old olive trees that integrate the impressive estate into its lush surroundings. The orientation of the estate affords panoramic views that extend from the verdant Corfiot interior and the Ionian sea to the Greek mainland and the Albanian mountains. The villa itself takes its cue from the local Corfiot architecture, allowing the landscape to determine the aesthetics of the structure.
The house comprises a multi-leveled cluster of different sized blocks, thus allowing for various terraces with different views. The walls have been painted in a pale tone to match the shades of the marble that has been used for parts of the exterior and the patios. Various lounge and dining areas offer privacy and compliment the outdoor experience. Hidden amidst the trees, the paved swimming pool area with its pergola shaded lounge has been kept deliberately spare so that the focus remains on the soothing natural surroundings.
The interior is spacious and bright, with high wooden ceilings and tall French windows that let ample sunlight in. The owners have attended to every detail in order to create the atmosphere of a loving home. The decoration is classic and elegant with a French-country twist. Stark-white dominates the palette, interrupted by sudden rushes of color in the form of furnishings and ornaments. Rare antiques and authentic artworks that have been handpicked by the owners are carefully incorporated in the décor to accentuate the air of elegance. The furnishings are cozy and comfortable, creating a sense of immediate relaxation.
The overall sense of sophistication is highlighted by a wall-to-wall bookcase filled with books that have been collected over the years. All living spaces open to different terraces, allowing the surrounding landscape to be the main source of embellishment. A retreat in essence, this unique property offers a tranquil setting where you can relax and enjoy nature, as well as the everyday luxuries that will make your stay an unforgettable experience.
