When we designed Portico Verde Villa near Lefkimi, our favorite place in the South of Corfu island, we had in mind our childhood’s summers in the village. We wanted that innocence and harmony, back. And we made it!
Now, we are sharing this beautiful 2-floor villa that accommodates 8-10 guests in 3 large bedrooms and all its facilities with you - and we are really excited about it! The garden with its private pool and the BBQ with the large dining table, is the ideal escape…
Take a moment and look at this garden of fruitful trees and the Mediterranean Light…. Now imagine yourself on the pool bed, taking a summer afternoon nap, listening only to the cicadas’ singing…
This is how your vacations in Corfu will be... like your childhood's relaxing, sweet summer days…
DESCRIPTION: As you walk into the villa from the main entrance you see the living room with a fireplace and the kitchen in a separate room behind the staircase. It is bright and open, chic and classy. As you turn to the corridor behind the white staircase, you find the two ground floor bedrooms. The blue one with its ensuit bathroom with shower and the red one which is 40 sq.m and has an extra cobblestone room with one more sofa bed, that makes it ideal for a couple with a child. Right next to it, the big bathroom with a buthtub serves the red bedroom and your guests.
At the upperfloor you will find the master bedroom which is a 60 sq.m open space loft! It has a big private veranda overlooking the whole estate and the pool, a king size bed, a design bathtub in the room, a fireplace, two extra single beds and a baby cot that can sleep the children, a seperate bathroom with shower and beautiful decoration... All bathrooms are made of marble. No tiles have been used anywhere.
Outside the kitchen and the living room, there is a stone table for your breakfast or your afternoon cocktails! Then, as you walk to the left, you meet the BBQ area.... a beautiful place to gather! H huge hand made stone BBQ and a large table for 15 people, all protected by the sun or the wind, are the reasons to spend half of your day out of the house with your friends or family. You can cook and taste the fresh vegies from the garden, the local meat and fish and enjoy real mediterannean cuisine!
Last but not at all least, comes the swimming pool, on the other edge of the estate, with its pool bed.... What a shelter.... You need to be here to realize the feeling of taking a nap on this bed.
The orange grove with the sweet smell of the flowers make a dreamy combination....

Lefkimi has a sui generis character and the largest sandy beach you can find that leads to the ... “Sahara”. Life in Lefkimi rolls slowly in endless vineyards, dunes, the cedar forest of lake Korission, (Arkoudilas’ forest), the lighthouse and the salt pans which date from the 15th century. You will be amazed by the almost immovable, turquoise waters of the lake, separated from the always impressive turquoise Ionian Sea, only a by a narrow strip of land.
The wetland is home to more than one hundred and twenty different species of birds, while regular visitors are impressive cormorants and flamingos.
The magnificent cedar forest and the vast seashore of ten kilometers total length, with sand dunes and shallow crystal clear waters, are the highlights of the area.
At Lefkimi’s beaches, you can experience private swimming and sunbathing! If you choose the center of the endless beach, you will find more people, beach and water sports, a diving center, small taverns and beach bars with great music and colorful cocktails!
