Overview

About the property

Elegant Mediterranean Living At The Sylva Estate

Splendidly situated in a prominent position 40 metres above the sea, this unique estate neighbours the famous “mon Repos” – summer palace of Greek royalty and the birthplace of Prince Philip of Great Britain.

The Villa has a beautiful panoramic view looking southeast over the Ionian Sea and the famous Pondikonissi (Mouse) Island.

Located at the apex of Kanoni, the Villa is well away from Corfu’s tourist crowds, yet offers easy access to the restaurants and shops of Corfu town.

This 9 acre estate has beach frontage and beautifully tended gardens filled with shrubs and flowers, bougainvillea, wisteria, plumbago, jasmine and shaded by hundreds of olive and cypresses trees. The sun drenched terraces, and breathtaking views over the vast, turquoise-blue sea, and the wonderfully calming swishing of the trees, all

fuse together to make this a truly spectacular house. The undisputed highlight of the Villa is its splendid seventy square metre terrace with a panoramic view of the Ionian Sea.

The original house was featured in two main Hollywood productions, "The Executioner" (George Pepperd, Joan Collins, 1970) and "James Bond: For Your Eyes Only" (Roger Moore, Carole Bouquet, 1981).

A major renovation took place in 2002.

Layout:

Main House: Large reception area with a big stone fireplace and an adjacent dining

area, which connects to a covered outdoor dining terrace. There is a connecting

study/reading room, which also opens onto a terrace. Two large master bedrooms

suites (AC & fan) with marble bathrooms separate bathtubs and shower. Both

rooms open on to their private terrace/balcony. Four twin bedrooms (AC & fans) with

en suite bath/shower rooms; each of these rooms open directly onto a terrace.

Kitchen, laundry and staff accommodation.

Guest House: Situated on a level lower than the main house over looking the pool,

the guesthouse has one double bed room with an en suite bathroom with shower,

and a private terrace over looking the pool area, AC & fan. The second room has

twin beds, en suite bathroom with bathtub, and terrace, AC & fan. The living room

has a fireplace, kitchenette, also with satellite TV, DVD, AC & fan and balcony.

Studio: A charming guest apartment “The Nest” is on the same level as the pool,

and has a double bed, en suite bathroom, kitchenette, TV, Stereo, AC & fan.
