Description of Villa Kastania
5 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms
Villa Kastania OverviewVilla Kastania is located in a truly privileged, elevated position a short distance inland from the iconic and magnificent Corfu Town. With panoramic views to die for, a larger than average private ‘beach effect’ swimming pool and charming and stylish interiors, Villa Kastania ticks all the boxes and more for a wonderful family holiday.
Recently refurbished and boasting a large open plan living space on the first floor, with huge glass windows and doors affording magnificent 180 degree views out towards the south-east coastline of Corfu from the spacious balcony, your days here at Villa Kastania are likely to be spent gazing in awe at this mesmerising vista. The interiors of this spacious family home are simply vast, with 3 good sized bedrooms on the second floor, and a spacious attic room on the top level, as well as an extremely comfortable and spacious living space and bedroom (with 2 extra beds) downstairs on the ground level, where expansive glass doors lead out to the attractive gardens and private swimming pool.
When you can drag yourselves away from the beautiful exteriors there are numerous fabulous beaches, many of which can easily be reached in less than 15 minutes by car, including Agios Gordis, Kontogialos and Benitses. If dining out in beachfront restaurants is your thing and sampling freshly caught fish, you could not possibly be in a better place, as the fish tavernas in nearby Bouchari and Prassoudi are amongst the best on the island and both can be reached in less than twenty minutes by car.
