Description of Villa Corintha
4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms
Villa Corintha OverviewIn the midst of an enormous private garden, Villa Corinthia blends interiors straight from the pages of a glossy magazine and tranquil outdoor living. Spread over two storeys, the villa has four stunning bedrooms and an elegant, open plan living room. Statement art pieces run through the villa like a motif, and natural materials feature heavily within this property, especially wicker and bamboo.
Step through into the inviting yet chic living space - the attention to detail is just sublime. From the starburst art on the walls to the twisted bamboo coffee tables with circular tops, right down to the pendant lighting, you're bound to be wowed. A honey-coloured fluffy rug adorns the floor, while floor to ceiling windows ensure the whole space is bathed in light. Dine around the rustic wooden dining table on rattan chairs, or enjoy an alfresco meal on the terrace.
The bedrooms have castle-like arched windows where you can imagine you're in your very own fairytale. Sunlight streams through into the villa, while designer lamps hang from the ceiling to romantically illuminate the room by night. There are two double beds and two twins, to offer flexibility for families and space for eight guests to sleep. Dramatic headboards with shutter-style wood and mosaics draw the eye upwards, and you'll find unique circular bamboo chairs. Bathrooms have marble tiles, huge mirrors and a sensational rain shower.
Fringed with exotic plants, the pool area is a shimmering respite from the Mediterranean sunshine. A fountain trickles gracefully into the water, from a stonework archway - listen to the relaxing sound as you float in the pool. The pool is bordered by a spacious white decking area, with sunbeds for you to top up your tan.
Right next to the pool is a luxurious jacuzzi, where you can let all your stress melt away and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere. When you've finished swimming, retreat to the gazebo, complete with huge rattan sofas with comfortable white cushions and a dining table. Matching drapes shade you from the sun. Make use of the outdoor barbecue area or the fully equipped kitchen, ideal for self-caterers.
*** Villa Corintha can accommodate up to a maximum of 8 guests, but being close to Villa Medea and Villa Lanassa, further groups of 4 and 6 guests (respectively) can be accommodated - please follow the links for more information

Villa Corintha LocationThis villa is perfectly located in beautiful Dassia, on the east coast of Corfu. Surrounded by mesmerising views of the Albanian mountains and famous for Dassia beach, this area is charming and family-friendly. The area is home to many fancy hotels along the coastal road - some of them host cabaret nights and quizzes that the whole family can enjoy.
Dassia Beach is a beautiful pebbled beach with amazing watersports. Guests can try out waterskiing, paragliding or even take a pedalo out - the water is calm. Agios Nikolaus beach has rocky coves and a historic church nearby. It's perfect for those in search of wilder, natural beaches.
Corfu is the second largest of the Ionian Islands, with Venetian influenced architecture, as well as Byzantine. When translated, Corfu means 'a pair of peaks' after the twin hills topped with fortresses. During the days of the Ottoman Empire, these successfully protected the island from invaders. Corfu is home to friendly locals and tasty local cuisine.
The villa is just 8km from Corfu town. A warren of winding lanes, filled with Venetian and Neoclassical architecture, the town is painted in sunshine shades of yellow and orange. Head to Spianada Square, where locals catch up over a coffee and where many landmarks are joined to. Why not visit the Old Fortress, which lies atop an acropolis over the rocky peninsula. Take a walk up to the highest point to be rewarded with breathtaking views, passing a small chapel and museum along the way.
Famous Liston Arcade, with its promenade inspired by the Rue de Rivoli in Paris is also nearby. The promenade is made up of sweeping arches with lots of cafes, so it's a perfect spot for people-watching with a coffee. There's plenty of local food to try all over the island, such as bourdeto, which is rockfish in a tomato sauce with onions and garlic. Try pastralio, consisting of fried aubergine layered with cheese and tomato basil sauce and baked with boiled eggs, pancetta or salami.
A day trip to see Acheillio, the summer palace of Empress Sisi of Austria is a popular choice in Corfu. Located in Gastouri, the palace was created in 1898 and was inspired by Greek mythology in design. Around the historical palace there are iconic sculptures of Achilles, Hera and Zeus. The palace is encircled by beautiful gardens and has amazing views of the Ionian Sea.
A beach day is always a good idea in Corfu - and with so many to choose from, you could try a different beach every day! Aside from Dassia and Agios Nikolai beach, Agios Gordious beach is also close to the villa and boasts beautiful jade water and sugary soft sand. The name comes from the church on the beachfront and the road that leads up to it is lined with olive trees and vineyards.
