Kassiopi Villa Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 8. 4 bedrooms. 5 bathrooms. Large pool & terraces. Stunning views&sunsets

Villa Eleni is the paradigm of luxury. Designed and furnished with the highest quality materials available worldwide, the villa oozes sophistication and elegance to give you the ultimate holiday experience.

A huge advantage of the villa is it's location, combining the much wanted serenity of a secluded location with the convenience of having close proximity to Kassiopi's village centre. Being well within walking distance to the beach and all amenities (no car hire neccessary), you could be forgiven for thinking the quietness and privacy of the villa would be challenged, but Villa Eleni - sitting in the exclusive and unpopulated corner of Anatoliko, Kassiopi - has complete privacy and a peacefulness that rivals 'middle-of-nowhere' properties. It is a huge rarity for villas of this size and standard to have such a fantastic location, yet Villa Eleni has. Ideal for groups wanting amenities close by and families with teenagers/young adults whom can entertain themselves in Kassiopi whlst the parents needn't worry about them getting back.

In designing the villa, huge importance was put on creating the most relaxing and peaceful outside space as your summer holidays are of course spent mostly enjoying the fresh air. Villa Eleni gives you every opportunity to enjoy this, the climate and the views. The private pool area is of a very generous size. The pool itself is one of the largest available in a private villa in the area. Relax on the plush, cushioned sunbeds close to your family and friends or enjoy a little solitude – there's room for both. One end of the space displays a huge outside table in which you can envisage morning coffees, al-fresco dining (straight from the barbeque by the pool) and late night, night-caps happening at. Another side boasts a covered veranda with sofa and armchairs to escape from the sun. The pool area enjoys the sun from dawn till dusk giving you unsolicited sunbathing time, a benefit that not all villas have. For those not so sun-friendly, there are plenty of parasols, shaded areas and covered verandas elsewhere on the property too. Whilst relaxing at the villa, soak up the breathtaking backdrop: Kassiopi village, azure sea, sweeping coastline, Byzantium castle and dramatic mountains, much so enjoyable from the upstairs veranda with sofa and armchairs to sink into. Every outside area at Villa Eleni is ornamented by flowers, grass and greenery making you guests with the flora and fauna. Combining this with the subtle lighting around the villa and it makes a haven of tranquillity and pure bliss.

Springtime in Corfu is one of the most beautiful times to visit our island. With said flora and fauna at it's best and bountiful cultural offerings at Easter, there is never anything short to do. At the villa we provide you with a 'what's on' diary providing you with all the important events/precession's/dates in our Greek calendar-religious or otherwise. For those looking to explore, we also provide a nature trail booklet guiding you along one of the most beautiful walks in the Kassiopi area.

Boasting 3 floors, Villa Eleni has ample space to sleep 8 people very comfortably. The ground floor has three generously sized bedrooms and their ensuites. Bright and airy and with ample wardrobe space you can live clutter free - hide that suitcase away until you'll forget it's there! Two of the bedrooms lead straight onto the pool area - super easy access. On the top floor is the master bedroom, its en-suite and huge veranda with comfy seating area. Sleeping in there, leave the curtains open and wake up to the whole of kassiopi at your feet - truly the king of the castle. The quality of furnishings notches up yet another level in the master bedroom and master en-suite - beyond beauty and words. Equally so, the rest of the property has been so lovingly designed that you can relax and enjoy your holiday in incomparable style and luxury. Excellent 5* reviews.

About Keleigh Wood

My family have been enjoying holidays in Kassiopi collectively for around 30 years and it's always been a special place for us. Since meeting my Greek partner whilst on holiday and consequently moving here in 2008 we completed the build of Villa Kristos (my husband's work and love project), furnished the villa to a standard WE would love whilst on holiday and started renting. I'm very happy to call Kassiopi our home and welcome all guests to our little slice of paradise.

Lovely family holiday at Villa Eleni

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 8 adults - my husband and I together with our 3 grown up "children" and their other halves. The villa is just great. It is spacious, clean, extremely well located for privacy and great views yet within very easy walking distance of shops, tavernas, the harbour and beaches. The master bedroom is fabulous. The pool is a good size with a shallow end with steps and the area around the pool is large enough for 8 people to have plenty of space. Terraces and balconies provide extra outside sitting areas and shade if needed - and stunning views. The house is well appointed and furnished. We chose to eat in a lot and we found the kitchen a little lacking in cooking utensils, but Keleigh was happy to provide anything we suggested e.g. a whisk. We would say that bedroom 4 is not quite up to the standard of the other bedrooms as it is at the back of the villa and a bit dark as it only has small, high windows. The twin room opening on to the pool does have its own bathroom but it is not en-suite - this did mean other members of our party used it as the back bedroom has a bathroom with only a hand held shower in the bath. These were minor niggles and didn't spoil anyone's enjoyment of the holiday. Apart from that the villa is pretty near perfect. The beds were changed twice during our week's stay, as were the towels, and maids cleaned almost every day, even emptying the bins and taking away the rubbish. The house, pool and garden are all maintained to a high standard. The people who run the nearest supermarket were very friendly and helpful and always delivered our shopping - for free! We ate one evening at The Lavanda just at the end of the road and another evening at Petrinos overlooking the harbour. On both occasions we had good food and friendly service. Overall, we had a very happy time in lovely surroundings. We would not hesitate to recommend this villa and would love to return sometime. In fact, having been looking at all our photos just now, we all wish we were still there! Thank you Keleigh for making everything so easy.

Beautiful Villa, in a great position

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were lucky enough to stay at Villa Eleni this summer along with my Brother. It was my first visit in around 30 years to Corfu, and my first to a self catered villa.

On arriving at the villa, it was clearly evident that it had been fitted out with quality fixtures and fittings, and the layout was perfect. There is a master bedroom upstairs with a huge bathroom with shower, and a fabulous picture window looking out to sea. The living and dining area and kitchen were on the ground floor, furnished with a huge sofa and table for 8 very comfortably.

On the lower ground floor, there are three further bedrooms, two with en-suite, and a separate bathroom. A double and one of the twin rooms had patio doors leading out to the pool area.... For us, this was ideal. The bedrooms are extremely roomy, and all have their own air conditioning systems that work perfectly. The bathrooms are very well appointed, and each bedroom has a vast amount of storage space.

The layout for the villa was perfect for us. If you are with another family, it is very easy to have your own space, but it is also has great spaces for entertaining together too. The kitchen was very well appointed with plenty of crockery and utensils, a dishwasher, a huge fridge freezer and microwave. There is also a great BBQ area by the pool for those that prefer that.

The pool was spotless and it was cleaned several times during our stay. Quality pool towels are also provided along with the usual linen, so that is a huge bonus.

The owners are lovely people, and couldn't do enough for you. They also have a fabulous restaurant on the harbour ... one to definitely try!

The setting of the villa couldn't be any better. Yes it is on the hillside, which provides a quiet location, but it is only a short walk away to the harbour to be in the centre of things. There is a very steep slope one way, and a longer slightly less steep path another. Either way, it didn't pose any problems.

All in all, I couldn't fault the villa, the owners, or Kassiopi itself (and I am a fussy person usually!) We had several trips out, and found plenty to do. The villa provided a beautiful place where you could relax and feel at home, but also be the central place from where to explore the island.

I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this villa to anyone.

Great villa and location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in Villa Eleni July 2014. High quality villa, providing spacious accommodation for 4 adults and 4 children, set in a good location overlooking Kassiopi and surrounding area.

Booking was handled very efficiently by the owners who were always willing to help with information and advice. They were able to provide details for a local car hire firm and arrange for some shopping to be delivered to the villa due to our arrival very late at night.

Villa is set in quiet area, but within walking distance of shops, restaurants and attractive harbour area. The property is located up a short but very steep hill, which could be an issue for some visitors. High quality, generous accommodation including great pool area with enough outdoor furniture for size of villa. Owners responded quickly to any questions or requests during our stay.

This was our first visit to Corfu and from the knowledge we were able to gain of the area, we found Kassiopi one of the most attractive resorts on the north-east coast. Good choice of good-quality restaurants, although booking was necessary during the main holiday season. Car hire helpful for exploring area, but not absolutely essential.

Highly recommended.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Eleni is a very high quality beautiful villa. The furnishings are of the highest standard, the beds the comfiest and largest, and the kitchen has all facilities should you wish to use them (we ate out almost all the time though). Massive sitting room and 3 bedrooms on lower floor, 1 master bedroom on top floor - nice layout if you have teenage kids! All rooms had bathrooms and showers. The house is really cool due to its stone construction but aircon units in every room work really well if needed. Large balcony areas are great for sitting outside and the pool is huge with lots of sitting space. The small town of Kassiopi is only 5 minutes walk (maximum) away and we found it to have lots of lovely restaurants (including Petrinos owned by the villa owners) and shops. The night life is pleasant and our 17 year old boys stayed out pretty late quite safely, all the bars and clubs being pretty watchful over the youngsters around town. We thought it an ideal location too for our 14 year old and 11 year old with lots to do. Keleigh who owns the villa made the whole booking experience really straightforward and welcomed us to the villa. She was always there when needed but equally we were left to enjoy the place. Cleaning of the villa was as often as required, perfectly undertaken, and towels for the beach as well as the house were provided. The place is immaculate - they trust you to keep it that way and the evidence is that people do. We loved it and will go back. Absolute 5 star rating!

The lovely village of Kassiopi provides a satisfying array of possibilities to suit everyone. From an offering of both traditional and international cuisine to lively or leisurely bar culture to invigorating walks of castle ruins and coast - the variety of choice makes Kassiopi quite cosmopolitan.

Kassiopi's village centre is a 6 minute walk away from Villa Eleni and within the village you can find plenty of things you may need or want: shops, restaurants, bars, supermarkets, car-hire, diving centre, excursion/exchange offices, computer access, pharmacy etc.

Kassiopi is ideally situated as a base for those who wish to explore the surrounding villages as boat/coach excursions run straight from the village. Why not enjoy a relaxing east coast cruise or, going west, have fun on the sandy beach BBQ trip? Prefer to explore by yourselves? Hire a boat from the quaint harbour of Kassiopi and be skipper for the day.

Alternatively, for those who wish to kick back and do nothing, Kassiopi's laid-back atmosphere makes the perfect backdrop. The main beach (Kalamionas beach) is just a 7 minute walk away, another small cove 5 minutes walk away behind the villa. There are a few equally beautiful small coves along the headland that you may wish to explore also - all within easy walking distance. Being on the north east coast of Corfu, the seas here are free from dangerous currents and they flaunt blue-flag status. Go crab fishing in one of several rock coves or try fishing for your tea - if that fails, there is a super choice of restaurants dotted about throughout the village where you can dine at.

Kassiopi plays host to some beautiful celebrations throughout the year and it is at these times, that you really feel the community spirit and authetic greek culture come alive. Notable festivals include May 8th 'panagia' in celebration and remembrance of the Great Miracle in 1530, May 21st celebrating the unification of the Ionian Islands, August 15th in celebration of the assumption of Mary and October 28th celebrating 'Ochi' - 'No' day. Often these days would be highlighted with Parades, marching bands, live music and greek dancing come evening and lots of merry Greek locals!

In booking Villa Eleni, you are dealing with the owners who live within the village whom therefore are able to offer great tips, advice and contacts for whatever you may wish to do once in Kassiopi. Most important thing: enjoy your holiday in our village because it's a very special, beautiful place.
