A stunning property located on the fabled North East coastline of the beautiful Greek Island of Corfu.
Built on a hillside, just above the fishing village of Fakamia Nissaki “Nissaki Lux Villa” has the rare combination of being in a rural, secluded and private location, yet within minutes walk of beautiful beaches, wonderful sea swimming, and the pretty harbour and amenities of Nissaki.
It enjoys majestic coastline views which almost take your breath away “Nissaki Lux Villa” was built from locally quarried stone, to ensure that despite its newness, the house would merge into its natural surroundings of stone clad landscape of maquis, olives, and spear like cypresses, in Spring and Autumn carpeted with pink cyclamen.
The fact the house was built on a steep hillside meant the owners could create the living areas on the higher level, making the most of its fantastic views. The huge area of sitting room, leading to the kitchen and dining room, all cleverly combine to make an amazing living space. A TV room for “vegging out”, Wi-Fi, computer and printer ensures a private space for teenagers or the city executive!
Aspiring chefs will love the very well equipped large kitchen and breakfast area. Outside, the surrounding leisure and entertainment area is where much of the day will be spent, the spectacular pools (2) providing the focal point.
From the pool, the terraced, garden area slopes down to the track which leads guests either to lovely Krouzeri bay, or to the village of Nissaki no more than 5 minutes walk away.
“Nissaki Lux Villa” is a more than a comfortable holiday home, for all ages and all requirements. An adult group just wanting to relax out of season, will enjoy the walk into the village for fresh bread in the morning, and a cappuccino whilst reading the newly arrived papers. Whilst a car is recommended it is by no means essential.
Those who don’t want to rely on a car can truly enjoy the location, early risers enjoying the walk into Nissaki to buy still hot fresh bread from the baker. Boat hire is a must, and the best way to explore the beautiful coastline. From “Nissaki Lux Villa” it is an easy trip to one of the pretty waterside tavernas on the North East coastline, enjoying a long lunch, stopping on the way back for a swim and siesta in a gorgeous deserted cove.
In early summer, wild flowers still proliferate, a time for walking, and exploring. In the high summer months, unlike the shores of other fashionable Mediterranean resorts, the area still remains relatively peaceful, slipping into the Autumn, long Indian summer days, a warm sea, and cooler nights.
For those with children of all ages during school holidays, the house will meet everybodys expectations. Teenagers love Kassiopi with its friendly bars and relatively unsophisticated night life, Agios Stephanos for its beautiful waterside restaurants and bars, and the fabulous Agni one of the most stunning coves a few minutes drive from “Nissaki Lux Villa” with a range of lovely Tavernas to gourmet restaurants.
Finally, to sit on the candlelit terrace at dusk, with the twinkling lights of Nissaki below. The truly stunning views of Corfu Town and the floodlit ruins of the centuries old Roman castle silhouetted against the mysterious shapes of the distant Albanian mountains. Looking out to sea and the romantic passing of a floodlit cruise ship gliding silently over an inky blue sea is when the property is at its most beautiful. Looking up at a starlit sky, perhaps listening to the soft hoot of Gerald Durrells beloved Scops owl breaking the silence, is truly magical.
“Nissaki Lux Villa” is a recommended home for an unforgettable stay on the beautiful North – east coast of Corfu this summer.
