'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
