'The Lookout' is set in a landmark position on the cliff edge towering above the bay of Paleokastritsa “one of the best views in the Mediterranean” according to cruise ship itineraries. However from this villa the scenery & wild herb scented air is yours alone to take in and enjoy.Evenings watch the awe inspiring Santorini-like sunset, as the last day tripping boats leave Paradise Beach & the sea caves below. This cliff top retreat is set in two acres of mature olive grove & beyond that is surrounded by swathes of protected forests offering total rest & seclusion. On the doorstep are miles of unmade track ideal for exploring by foot, mountain bike or 4x4 plus easy access to the Corfu Trail. Despite this, Corfu Town is only a 30 minute drive away.

This seaside villa is designed with wide sliding doors on three sides of the big 14m x 5.5m living area. When opened indoors merges with the outside terraces to the north&east plus the pool terrace to the west making one huge space from which to enjoy the Mediterranean lifestyle. In addition to the modern well equipped kitchen a 3 burner grill is provided for your outdoor bbqs. A quality sound system couples up to the TV & DVD plus WIFI broadband means that you stay in touch whilst relaxing by the pool! All in all a great villa for family celebrations & get togethers, entertaining or a romantic break.

The amazing infinity pool perched on the edge of the rugged cliffs means you see some of the best beaches in Corfu without leaving the water. Look down from here upon the blue & turquoise seas sparkling crystal clear inviting snorkelling or diving. Falcons & Hawks can often be observed swooping among the rocky outcrops.

Giannades village, approximately 1.5km away has a bar with free internet access, taverna which serves good locally sourced food, a cafe/creperie, Post Office,a kiosk selling soft drinks, confectionery etc., several small grocery shops, and a local butcher. The village square is a very pleasant place to sit and relax with an iced coffee or beer, admire the views over the valley to the sea beyond and watch the world go by.

Some of the outer village roads around Giannades, including a 1km stretch leading to this property, do not have tarmac surfaces. This is a common feature in many areas of both Corfu and Greece in general and here it probably helps to keep the locality nice and quiet, it certainly adds rural charm. Some guests may prefer to hire a 4x4 vehicle for additional comfort whilst visiting, which would also allow them to explore deeper into the unspoilt countryside around.

This villa stands on towering cliffs 250 meters above the sea. It's a fabulous position, crafted by nature, providing awe inspiring views and great privacy but please be sure to keep everyone safe, especially children, by staying away from the cliff edge which although guarded still needs to be treated with respect.

'The Lookout' has been inspected and certificated by the E.O.T. (Greek Tourism Organisation). Registration number 0829K10000263501.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for providing such an amazing, well equipped and comfortable villa. The furnishings, fittings and equipment are all 1st class and we could not have asked for more. We were expecting a nice villa and view after seeing the photos on the website but when we walked in on the first day we were all completely overwhelmed by the beauty of the place. No photo could ever do justice to what you have on offer up here.

We have had a very comfortable and relaxing stay and hope that we may be able to return sometime soon

JUST PERFECT!

  • 5 out of 5
Nothing can prepare you for your first sight of the sea as you open the front door - an incomparable view which we were privileged to 'own' for 10 days. A wonderfully comfortable villa, beautifully cool, despite the heat. The games room was a great hit with everyone and we were thrilled to find a set of scrabble as we realised en route we had forgotten ours - no holiday is complete for us without scrabble! Super helpful Lorraine was available for any queries and the house was beautifully cleaned mid week. Our daughter-in-law thought it her best holiday EVER and that the house was her dream villa. Definitely recommend a jeep for the bumpy road up to the house, but hey, that's more fun anyway! Love, love, loved it - we will be back! Thank you Julie, Tom and the team.

Fantastic Villa Location!!

  • 5 out of 5
Not enough space for words to describe this villa. Spacious, clean, absolutely stunning views of coast up to Paleokastritsa and uninterrupted views of sunset. Infinity pool is a good size and stunning with the views. Tried lots of Tavernas and all very friendly. All in all a fantastic 2 weeks and fully refreshed. Only note would be to make sure you hire a sturdy vehicle as approach road is unmade but didn't affect enjoyment of holiday (actually made it more exiting for the kids!!!) Would definitely book again without hesitation.

Incredible Villa

  • 5 out of 5
This is a truly amazing villa. The views from all the rooms are quite spectacular as they look out over the sea. There were some fantastic sunsets enjoyed whilst dining alfresco with a glass of wine.
The villa is very spacious, modern and very clean. The decor of a very high standard.
The owners, who live on the island, provide very comprehensive customer service and were available if we had any problems.
This villa is in a very secluded position surrounded by olive trees .
We would recommend a 4x4 vehicle as the road/track to the property can be a bit challenging

Excellent Villa, Accomadating Hosts

  • 5 out of 5
We had the pleasure of staying at "The Lookout" in June 2012. The villa is beautiful, and set in a very tranquil part of Corfu. The villa is set upon cliffs that overlook the north west parts of Corfu. The villa is clean and spacious. The views are unmatched. We enjoyed beautiful sunsets over the bay.

The villa itself is isolated from the hustle and bustle. We felt like we were the only ones on the Island! The pool is beautiful and is set on the cliff.

Our hosts were wonderful. They arranged a chef for us, to cook dinner on two nights. They also arranged for tours of the local honey factory and winery. Both tours were excellent, with multiple samples. We had 4 free bottles of wine to sample at Theotaky estates, while our guide explained to us the intricacies of wine making in Corfu (you can't bottle wine during a full moon...)

We would reccommend the villa to all who are interested. It is pefect for up to 8 people. It is very spacious, and relaxing. We would suggest an SUV or 4x4 as the Villa is perched on a cliff, and requires a drive up unpaved roads.

Sea views do not come much better than from this villa. 'The Lookout' is situated perfectly, above the clear azure seas where waves can be heard lapping the shores below. Enjoy extraordinary bird's eye views of the rugged cliffs that make up this coastline, then gaze onwards across unspoilt beaches of silver sand to the turquoise bays of Paleokastritsa. Lying In the waters immediately to the front of the villa is the small, wild uninhabited island of Koliviri above which birds are seen soaring on the warm thermals.

Set on the west coast of Corfu, 'The Lookout' is a villa designed to ensure that the amazing panoramas are never further than a glimpse away. The extensive terraces wrap around this fabulous property to compliment the bay putting you at one with the lovely surroundings, the inviting pool appearing as part of the sea below. Approached through an ancient private olive grove the villa offers total peace and privacy and is both a beautiful and unique location for your holiday or other special occasion.

Looking from the villa towards Paleokasrtrisa the beaches along this part of the Corfu coastline have been voted as being high in the Top 10 Best Beach locations in Greece. The main beaches of Paleokastrisa can be reached by car in around 15 minutes as can the pebbly beach at Liapades. The Blue Flag beach at Ermones is 10 minutes drive and just a few minutes further are the extensive sands of the west coast beaches of Glyfada, Pelekas and Agios Gordios. Because the sand slopes gently into the water here these beaches are considered to be very safe and are therefore popular with families .

Hidden away just south of 'The Lookout' is a beach set in a picture perfect horseshoe bay. The beach is called 'Yali' and is near enough to the villa that it can be reached by foot .The view from above makes 'Yali' an appealing prospect but the track going down towards this beach narrows and becomes very steep making the final descent an adventure that can only be recommended for the most fit and determined.

Liapades is located in a deep-cut bay, its view out to sea fringed by forested hillsides, which focus your gaze along the Paleokastritsa coastline. Few buildings are in sight, so you can hardly tell which century you are in. The big fun of Liapades is hiring an outboard motor boat and heading south along the coastline where 'The Lookout' stands. The land, where it meets the sea, is sheer and precipitous as far as Ermones with fine beaches and caves in between but few of these are accessible even on foot, which makes a sea-bourne exploration an exciting proposition.

The first beach you pass is Rovinia, made famous by Emma Tennant's book 'A House in Corfu' and worth a visit, but since it has an access road we suggest you leave this one to explore by car later and head on in your boat to Limni, a spectacular double-sided beach which links a small promontory with the coast. The strand is pebble, but the sea is crystal-clear. Further along the coastline, beaches of beautiful golden sand, interspersed by sheer hillsides blanketed in a patchwork of green and by twisted rock formations and sea-caves, are tucked under high cliffs.

If you like the idea of a secluded inaccessible beach with glorious sands but prefer someone else to skipper the boat we suggest you book one of the boats from Paleokastrisa that stop off for the day at Paradise beach provide a BBQ and then take you and your party back in the late afternoon. Great fun!

It would be a shame to leave Corfu having not explored the Venetian influenced architecture, cobbled streets, boutiques, restaurants and historical sites of the island's capital, Corfu Town which is now a world heritage site. Alternatively, you may like to play a round of golf at the respected 18 hole Championship course near Ermones or have a splash around at the Aqualand Water Park. All of these attractions are very close-by. To finish the day why not treat yourself to a hearty grill at the friendly taverna in Giannades village square or sit out with the locals enjoying a drink at the Cafe Odeon .

'A day not on Corfu is a day wasted'- from Emma Tennant's book 'A house in Corfu'
