Description of Chapel View
1 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms
Chapel View OverviewChapel View is the most wonderful getaway for couples looking for a magical romantic escape.
The architectural design of this property will remind you of a small forest house from a fairytale, though much more modern and comfortable inside.
The accommodation at Chapel View is studio style. The door opens into a fabulous, large circular room with traditional stone walls and floor, large windows with window seating, a splendid king-size bed, a kitchenette area, shower room, and the centerpiece - would it be the feature fireplace or maybe the amazing wood-panelled ceiling with fan to keep you cool through the balmy nights?
Whilst you are well tucked away from view, this small complex has two larger villas on-site along with two swimming pools and a tennis court, that can be rented out in combination with this cottage. A unique aspect of this small villa is the tiny 16th-century Orthodox Chapel, which gives the property its delightful name. All of this set amongst some 900 olive trees.
The private pebble beach just a few meters from your front door is the perfect location for enjoying many hours lying listening to the sound of the waves lapping the shore, soaking up the sun. The end of the small jetty offers the perfect place to dive in for a dip to cool off.
After a busy day on the beach and dinner at one of the fabulous tavernas on the bay why not enjoy romantic evenings by the fireplace at Chapel View where the only sounds you will hear are the crackling of the logs as they burn and the chirping of the crickets.
Chapel View Property Features
Chapel View Location
Boukari bay, with stunning views across to Corfu Town, is essentially composed of many small consecutive sand and pebble bays, many of which have tiny wooden piers. These are absolutely perfect for sitting dangling your toes into the azure blue waters to cool down from time to time, or for diving into the water from to do some snorkelling. The waters around here are perfect for this.
Should you choose to leave the peace and tranquillity of Chapel View there are many quaint little villages and small towns nearby, perhaps hiring bicycles would be a fun way to get around – the roads around here are not too busy.
There is the traditional and unspoiled village of Chlomos only 2 km inland; its elevated situation offers fabulous views out to the east and the west. Chlomos offers a real taste of unspoiled Corfu, the village centre so old and quaint, the street so narrow that cars are not allowed.
If you feel more adventurous or want to see a little nightlife or even just recharge your fridge, Messonghi and Moraitika are two tourist villages 3/4km away with local shops, café’s, restaurants, bars and night clubs.
Corfu is narrow around the Boukari area, it only a 10-minute journey over to the west side of the island, and beautiful beaches like the one at Halikounas which is several kilometres long, with shallow waters. You may need your beach shoes here too, because the sand gets hot!
The setting is truly magnificent with the backdrop of the mountains and Lake Korission, a protected nature reserve. Issos beach just south of Halikounas – perhaps the most beautiful unspoiled beach on the island was used as a location for a scene in the Bond film “For your Eyes Only’.
There is so much to do, so much to see around this south tip of the island you will want to return another year.
