Description of Villa Lanassa
3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms
Villa Lanassa OverviewAn idyllic hideaway in the Dassia area of Corfu with stylish interior design, sprawling manicured gardens and a jacuzzi. This villa evokes Scandinavian hygge blended with fresh Mediterranean exteriors. There's a warm, welcoming vibe around the villa and Statement art is scattered around the villa, alongside decorations made from natural materials.
Traditional white and brown exteriors are encompassed by a manicured lawn and an aquamarine pool with Roman style steps - the perfect spot for a refreshing dip amid the Mediterranean sunshine. An atmospheric fountain trickles into the water, but possibly the most exciting outdoor feature is the bubbling jacuzzi in its own special area.
By the pool, you'll find a handy outdoor shower and sunbeds for topping up your tan. Dine alfresco on elegant wicker chairs facing a flowering hedgerow - at night the area is dressed in ambient light with a charming atmosphere.
Bright and airy bedrooms are decorated in a neutral colour palette and designed to be a relaxing haven to return to at the end of the day. The three stylish bedrooms sleep up to six guests, with two double beds and one that is convertible to twin beds. One bedroom even has a wooden desk, perfect for writing holiday postcards. Chic armchairs in woven rattan, cosy knitted stools and industrial-style pendant lamp add extra style points.
The living room is a beautiful space to unwind - sink into plush sofas that rest on a hessian-coloured rug. Floor to ceiling windows ensure there's plenty of natural light, and there's a satellite television to gather around to watch movies on. Dine around the natural wood table on elegant bamboo chairs or out on the terrace.
The fully equipped kitchen in light wood is just beyond a screen, where you'll find everything you need to create tasty home-cooked meals. There's an oven and even a coffee machine. Alternatively, guests can utilise the barbecue outdoors - why not try recreating Greek souvlaki?
Circles are a motif throughout the villa, from round coffee tables to circular mirrors in the bathrooms and striking wicker armchairs. Marble tiled ensuites have a luxurious rain shower and plenty of space for getting ready.
*** Villa Lanassa can accommodate up to a maximum of 6 guests, but being close to Villa Medea and Villa Corintha, larger groups of 4 and 8 guests (respectively) can be accommodated - please follow the links for more information

Villa Lanassa LocationIdeally located in beautiful Dassia, on the east coast of Corfu. Encircled by showstopping views of the Albanian mountains and of course for Dassia beach, this area is relaxed and family-friendly. The area is home to many fancy hotels along the coastal road - some of them host cabaret nights and fun quizzes that non-guests can attend. Dassia town has all the amenities families could need, including shops, ATMs, cafes and restaurants.
Dassia Beach is a charming pebbled beach with amazing watersport potential. Guests can try out paragliding, waterskiing or even take a pedalo out onto the calm waters. Agios Nikolaus beach has rocky coves and a historic church nearby. It's perfect for those in search of wilder, more natural beaches.
Corfu, the second largest of the islands in the Ionian Sea, has plenty of Venetian influence in the architecture, as well as Byzantine. The name means 'a pair of peaks' as the island has two hills topped with fortresses that once defended the island from the Ottoman Empire. With cheerful locals and fantastic Corfiot cuisine, this island has everything you need for a fantastic holiday.
Corfu Town is made up of narrow, winding lanes, dotted with Venetian and Neoclassical architecture in ochre and burnt sienna. Visit Spianada Square, a space where locals congregate to catch up over a coffee - just off it is the Old Fortress. Built on the site of a former acropolis atop a rocky peninsula, visitors can walk up to the top for captivating 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. Made up of gentle arches with lots of cafes, the promenade is a perfect spot for people-watching with a coffee. There's plenty of tasty Corfiot food to try all over the island, such as bourdeto, which consists of rockfish in a tomato sauce with onions and garlic. Try pastralio, consisting of fried aubergine layered with cheese and baked with boiled eggs, pancetta or salami with a tomato and basil sauce.
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.
Corfu famously has lots of glorious beaches to spend a day with your toes in the sand and a leisurely swim in the Ionian Sea. Aside from Dassia and Agios Nikolai beach, Agios Gordious beach is also close to the villa and has beautiful jade green water and sugary soft sand. The name comes from the church on the beachfront. The road that leads up to it is very beautiful, lined with olive trees and vineyards.
