Villa Loukia underwent major refurbishment between 2015-18. The whole villa was re-tiled, luxury bathrooms created and the kitchen was re-modelled with all new appliances.
The master bedroom has been extended to create a 'master suite' with a sofa bed at one end for those with young children. There is also ample room for a travel cot too. The new, luxurious bathroom has a bath and separate shower. It has great lighting, courtesy night lights, extraction fan, heated mirror and a shaving mirror.
The 'Blue' Bedroom and bathroom have been re-modelled so that the twin beds (can be made up as a double) are opposite the amazing view, the floor is the same gorgeous tiles as the master, the bathroom is larger than it used to be and really luxurious with a wet-room style shower, loads of modern lighting, automatic night lights, heated mirror and magnified shaving mirror. All the details you could ever need.
Downstairs is the Orange Bedroom and bathroom which has been upgraded to the same standard as the other two bedrooms/bathrooms. It has the advantage of having french windows that lead out on to the terrace and pool.
The whole of the living area has also been re-tiled to match the rest of the property and extended with a fantastic 'picture' window that takes in the view across Avlaki to Albania beyond. This gives a wonderful indoor dining area for low season.
We are really pleased with the results of the all the work we have done an guests seem just as pleased!
Villa Loukia is located in a stunning position, nestled into the quiet olive covered hillside above Kassiopi in the hamlet of Kelia. The views from the villa across the bay of Avalaki and to Albania beyond are truly stunning. The property was new for 2008, when my husband and I bought it. We are English family with many years experience of holidaying in Corfu. Attention has therefore been paid to equipping the villa with all the necessary equipment for a relaxing and happy holiday whilst making sure it remains comfortable and practical for both couples and families alike. Villa Loukia is also equipped with items such as hairdryers and beach towels in order to reduce the need for two much expensive baggage on the flight over. Also for guest convenience every room has a 3 pin English socket as well as the standard 2-pin and USB sockets. No need to bring adapters.
The location is quiet and private - away from other properties - however unlike many villas in NE Corfu, the situation above Kassiopi means that it is possible to walk (1 km - 10-15 mins) to shops/restaurants in the evening, leaving the car at home. The nearest supermarket is just 5 mins walk or 2 mins in the car. The famous village of Kalami and the lovely secluded coves of that area is just a 10-15 mins drive. The pool is large (5m x 10m) and in 2015 we added heating which has been loved by guests using the villa in low season.
In 2018 we have set a goal to make Villa Loukia carbon neutral and we are committed to reducing climate change. Carbon offsetting is used to balance out our emissions by helping to pay for emission savings in other parts of the world.
We pledge to offset each year the carbon connected to the use of Villa Loukia as a holiday rental. This includes electricity, car usage by guests and staff, laundry and ALL guest flights.
We are really pleased that in 2018 Villa Loukia produced 80% of the electricity used (including air conditioning and pool heating) from the Photovoltaic Panel System on the roof and the Solar Water System.
In total for 2018, we have calculated that Villa Loukia used some 38.4 tonnes of carbon. We have rounded this up to 40 tonnes and this has been offset with a donation to carbonfootprint.com and their Community Projects Portfolio in Developing Countries.
The pledge we make is personal and on behalf of our Grandaughter, Imogen, so that she and her descendants can have a future. It does not come at any financial cost to our guests.
