It offers a wonderful, cavernous double height living space and a charming, two minimalist style bedrooms, one with en-suite shower room. Villa Pine offers charm, luxury and natural light in big measures. Though the villa is very comfortable for four guests, there is a sofabed in the living room which could also sleep another two guests. The villa offers fabulous outdoor space with a swimming pool and jacuzzi, a pretty garden, shaded alfresco dining and a charming drinks area. This gorgeous property is next door to two of our other villas, Villa Karousades which sleeps eight guests and Villa Spiros which sleeps up to three guests. If you are taking a holiday with other friends but enjoy some private time, you may want to consider booking one or both of the other villas.
Villa Pine is located in a fabulous spot in Karousades, just outside Sidari on the north coast of Corfu. The village of Karousades is nestled in a cypress and pine forest cloak on the outskirts of Sidari. Its shabby chic streets are piled high with pretty, pastel painted, vine-strung houses with their age-worn shutters and terracotta roofs and complete with a sprinkling of tavernas. You will feel as though time has forgetten this authentic little village. Just five minutes away is the neon lit Sidari with its fabulous package of entertainment and its beautiful beach. You will discover cocktail bars, live music, Greek dancing, karaoke and perhaps the odd plate smashing session. As well as its lively nightlife, there is plenty for children and some excellent restaurants. The wonderful resorts of Roda and Acharavi are ten minutes away and the popular Kassiopi on the north east coast is 20-25 minutes away. Villa Karousades is also just 5 minutes drive from the Canal D’Amour, a fabulous tourist attraction.
The design of Villa Pine is incredible. Natural light pours through the many windows and doors making this double height space very special. The villa has been built with care and passion using olive wood for the stairs and handmade furniture and Corfiot pine and stones, all creating a wonderful, luxurious feel. Villa Pine enjoys 105 sqm of space within a gorgeous plot of approximately 1000 sqm. The villa is enveloped by beautiful gardens, a delightful alfresco dining area which is shaded from the sun and another area perfect for pre-dinner drinks. The pool and jacuzzi are wonderful, set at a lower level in the garden along with lush green lawn and beautifully planted borders. The views from this wonderful view are astonishing, particularly at sunset when the sky changes to all shades or red, orange and pink.
The living space of Villa Pine is amazing. It is cavernous with its double height vaulted and sloping ceiling. The space is beautifully fitted and furnished and offers a modern, shaker style kitchen with excellent appliances and a sociable breakfast island. The dining table is made from the same gorgeous, chunky wood as the breakfast bar and the beams above the doors and windows. The lounge area enjoys a contemporary corner sofa which is perfectly positioned to enjoy the wall mounted television and the contemporary feature fire. The exposed mellow stonework blends beautifully with the beamed, vaulted ceiling and the gorgeous wooden floors. A modern staircase takes you upstairs to the first bedroom. This boasts a beautifully dressed double bed, plenty of wardrobe space and a fabulous ensuite wet room. The second bedroom, is situated on the ground floor and features terrace access. The two bathrooms both feature yet more wonderful woodwork, walk-in showers and gorgeous stone sinks.

Villa Pine LocationKarousades is a charming village with a sprinkling of tavernas amongst the pretty, flower clad houses. It is surrounded by lush greenery on the outskirts of the popular tourist resort of Sidari. It is approximately 35 km from Corfu Town and the airport. Sidari offers a fabulous array of restaurants, bars, supermarkets, vehicle hire shops, souvenir shops and travel agents offering many different tours. Sidari Beach is wonderful with excellent watersports and many organised loungers and parasols. There is a scuba diving school close to the beach. The small port offers boat trips to the isolated islands of Othoni, Mathraki and Erikoussa, known for their turquoise waters and stunning coves. Sidari also boasts a small water park inside a hotel which is open to non-residents.
Very close to the villa is the famous Canal d’Amour with its unique geological formations. It is definitely a must visit being so close.
Roda is a lovely resort ten minutes away from the villa. The eastern part of the beach is the village’s picturesque fishing harbour. There are plenty of tavernas, bars and shops and a delightful sandy beach. Many watersports are available as well as boat trips to Paleokastritsa, Corfu Town and the coastal islands near Corfu. Roda boasts some archaeological sites such as the remains of a Doric temple dating from the 5th century BC. You will see some of the finds from Roda in the archaeological museum in Corfu Town.
Also not far from the villa is Acharavi which enjoys a wonderful variety of shops, bars and restaurants. They are sprinkled along the central street and along the beach promenade. Acharavi’s golden beach stretches the whole length of the town, a lengthy 3km. Visitors will find plenty of loungers and umbrellas for hire and a wonderful selection of beach bars.
Paleokastritsa is rumoured to be the mythical island of the Phaeacians and the Bay of Paleokastritsa to be the place where Odysseus disembarked and met Nausicaa for the first time. The monastery in Paleokastritsa dates back to 1225 and is home to an interesting museum which houses the holy and precious relics of the monastery. It stands on a sheer hillside brimming with trees and olives facing the deep blue sea. The resort is very hilly and nestles beneath the folds of steep verdant slopes of olive groves and citrus orchards. Agios Spyridon is the the most famous beach in Paleokastritsa.
In the lively north eastern corner of Corfu you will discover the beautiful resort of Kassiopi. With the dramatic Mount Pantokrator overlooking the resort and with a stunning harbour, this once quiet fishing village is definitely worth a visit. Kassiopi boasts traditional narrow streets overlooked by the ruins of an ancient Byzantine castle together with breathtaking views out to sea towards the Albanian coast. There is a good selection of excellent restaurants and some good shops. Visitors enjoy delightful, tranquil walks around the headland.
Corfu Town or Kerkyra as it is otherwise known, is 35 km away. It is one of the most beautiful and elegant towns in Greece. Though seventh in size, Corfu Town is one of the most populated towns in the whole of the Ionian Islands. The entire old city is declared a UNESCO World Heritage site. Corfu Town’s unique charm, sophistication, character, atmosphere and faultless cuisine should not be missed. The town’s stunning architecture has many strong influences including Sicilian, Venetian, French and English. This beautiful town is brimming with elegant mansions, magnificent palaces, beautiful squares, majestic fortresses and the very best selection of gastronomic restaurants.
