A private luxurious villa in Corfu, with a private swimming pool, parking, garden and panoramic view to the sea. Ideal for family holiday or, generally, for people who seek to rest and relax!
The luxurious Villa Panoramic is located at the south west side of Corfu island, 22km away from the city of Corfu and the airport, and only 700m from the magnificent sandy beach of Paramonas. At a 2km distance from the villa is the beautiful and picturesque village of Aghios Mattheos, in which you can find 2 super markets, a butcher’s, a post office, some restaurants / taverns and also some cafeterias at the village’s central road. In the Paramonas region, there is a mini-market just 100m away from the villa. You can find four or five restaurants and tavernas on the beach where you can taste fresh fish and traditional local cuisine. Finally, apart from the Paramonas beach, various other beautiful and clean beaches lie close to the villa, such as Kanouli, Prassoudi, Skidi.
At a distance of approximately 20 km from the town of Corfu, in the south-western part of the island, lies the area of Agios Mattheos with the village of the same name. This is an area surrounded by olive groves. The village of Agios Mattheos is situated on a leeward slope of Mount Pantocrator, only 10 minutes away from the nearest beach, that of Paramonas. Villa Panoramic is located at a distance of 450 metres from Paramonas beach and 2 km from the village of Agios Mattheos.
There are many sights and areas of unique natural beauty. The Byzantine Castle of Gardiki, which was built in the 14th century, the Palaeolithic Grava Cave, the picturesque chapels in the town of Corfu, Lake Korissia, which has been classified as a biotope, and the historical Pantocrator Monastery with its magnificent view, which is situated at the very top of the mountain of the same name, are only a few of the options available to those who wish to become better acquainted with the area.
If you are after the "British greece" with all amenities on your doorstep, then this is not the place for you. If you are looking for a slightly remote, peaceful location that you aren't going to want to leave, read on.
The villa is owned by a local family, and their two sons. Their friendly and accommodating English speaking son George met us at the airport, and we really did need him to show us the way to this wonderful place. On an unspoilt mountain side location, the villa has stunning views, a private pool, and is peaceful and tranquil. So much so that for our ten day trip we only left for 3 days of excursions.
The owners are friendly, hospitable and happy to help, (even bringing us an amazing and delicious home cooked meal one night.) The wi fi is slow but available and the kitchen, though basic, has all the essentials.
This IS off the beaten track, local supermarkets have a limited selection of food, but busier tourist areas are only a 20/30 min drive away. The lovely local beach and two traditional restaurants are a refreshing downhill 15 min walk away, but its a steep climb back up to the villa! However the breathtaking views from every room and the pool of the villa are well worth the climb back up from the sea front.
A hire car is a must, but get a small one- roads are tiny and the local drivers don't care if the gap is big enough to pass through or not- they just keep on going!
We came just after the Greek Euro crisis so most places didn't accept cards but we came prepared with enough cash so that wasn't a problem - there is a small safe at the villa.
The family that own this villa own 2 others further down the hillside but this is by far the best. We did have noisy neighbours in one of the other villas but ours had double glazing so they didn't bother us too much.
I'm glad we found this hidden gem and we've had a lovely time here and would definitely come again.
Our fith rent through HomeAway - And absolut the best without any doubt.
We travelled as a couple with our five children.
The pictures and description are complete in alignment with reality.
The view is nothing but Fantastic. The house has the highest placement on the hillside thus perfect privacy and overview.
The pool is very large (app 20*8 meters) and perfectly clean and maintained.
The place is unique and in authentic Greek surroundings/atmosphere.
Only bad experience was that during our stay the WiFi router broke down, and we had no wi-fi connection for several days and as the place is pretty remote there are no telephone connection working either. The owner did his outmost to fix it and succeded after some days. In general very hospital/friendly owner (a Greek local family: Mother/father and two adult sons who has three houses whereof this is the best - In our oppinion). They are very thrustworthy and really serviceminded and helpful in every way.
There are extremely many wasps in the areas - And makes dinner at the terrace very enoying and our youngest son got stong.
A tip: If you are a large family buy fresh meat, fish, grocery etc. in big supermarkets in Corfu Town as there are only two very small supermarkets with very limited varity in closest town Agios Mattheos.
A perfect place away from mass turism - And small unspoiled beaches on the westcoast.
Minor detail: Kitchen and the the outdoor Grill/BBQ lacks a of practical equipment.
We can indeed recommend this place.
My wife, son and I couldn't praise this property or its manager more highly; met at the airport, picked up the rental car, and made our way to the western side of the island. Of note: unless you plan on staying in Paramonas, I'd strongly suggest that you consider a rental...even a walk down to the beach and local restaurants is a bit of a steep hike. Great residence with plenty of space. Nice pool, though we didn't use it much because the local beaches were pristine. Personally, I'd recommend staying on the western side of the island to avoid some of the tourist crush; we booked this property because we wanted to get some privacy, and it met and exceeded all of our expectations!
We would like to thank you very much for a very pleasent vacation in your wonderfull villa in beautyfull Corfu!
It has been a pleasure for our whole family to enjoy your great hospitality in alle the time of our stay in Villa Panoramic in Ag. Matheaos. We got much more than we espected - starting with a nice welcome pick-up in the airport and a nice introduction of the villa. We really feld a warm welcome and very helpfull attetude from the owner, who did all possible, to get us the very best holliday in Corfu.
We have been travelling some times, but we have never experienced this kind of hospitality and helpfull service. The villa is some of the best holiday houses we have tried and the view is one of the best we have seen - we will miss it a lot! All our expectations have been fullfit - thank you very much
We have had some very good experiences with the people of Corfu - allways very kind and helpfull!
We can only recommend this villa if you want a luxurious stay with a wonderfull view
Best regards Jensen Family from Denmark
Perhaps it was a dream ...
Hard to believe that in reality you can touch the particle of paradise where coming on the porch after breakfast in a luxurious terrace surrounded by green gardens overlooking the blue sea, you could break a bunch of grapes, oranges, or enjoy a juicy figs, and in the evening settled on the comfortable swing with friends at the pool, discussing saturated positive events the previous day, to take a slice of freshly broken from a tree and eat them lime flavored tequila. If heaven looks like that, then I will no more sin to go back there again.
I can not find the words of gratitude the hosts to express all admiration for their warm welcome. Up to this point I have never met a more sensitive, friendly and helpful people. Thank them for fresh fruit, olive oil, for pastetsadu for wine and everything else, what pleased us throughout the holiday.
I recommend everyone get a chance, be sure to visit this paradise!

Dear travelers! If you would like to spend an unforgettable holidays on one of the most beautiful and green Greek islands, we would strongly recommend you the
Villa Panoramic in the picturesque village of Paramonas. You will have there at your
total disposal a very large and comfortable villa with very beautiful see-view and
a splendid swimming pool in a quiet and free of tourists place. The shadow of the olive forest and local road along the sea gives you the possibility of jogging in the
morning and fulfill the nice walking tours. The clean sea and the beaches with small amount of people in June together with a nice small restaurants on the sea-beach
with very tasteful and very inexpensive food will give you a lot of positive emotions.
We rented a car and explored all the island during our stay. There are variety of beautiful landscapes on Corfu. However the largest advantage of the Vila Panoramic is connected with its very pleasant and helpful hosts who try very
actively to solve all your small problems if they arise during your stay. Their
friendly attitude and their hospitality will contribute greatly to the quality of your
vacations. We surely will try to visit the Villa Panoramic once more.
