Amazing, relaxing villa!!
Just back from 2 lovely weeks from the Manavra villa in Corfu. Villa is very nice set up in the hills above Ipsos, with THE most amazing views from the infinity pool. everything you need here for a lovely relaxing time, but with a car (get a good rate through the owners) you can be down on the coast in 10 mins. - would deffo go back, loved it!!

Great location, unique villa
This is a rare occasion when reality was better than pictures (or even semi-pro video the owners put up on their FB page). I won't say much about the villa itself - what you see is what you get, but better. :)
Location is perfect, the vista is truly breathtaking - you can see as far as Corfu town (while swimming in the infinity pool or relaxing in the spacious lounge or having an al-fresco breakfast). And since the island is tiny, you can easily get anywhere and back in a day.
Note that having a car is a must if you stay at this villa. Compact 4WD (like Suzuki Jimny) is your best bet - roads can be steep and narrow (that applies to the access road to the villa, too). If you are not 100% comfortable with manual transmission, try and find an automatic, or else you will face some tough "uphill battle" every day when returning to your villa. :)
Nearby town of Ipsos is like local Ibiza - packed full with clubbing teens (mostly Italians) and their scooters. Mind them on roads - they tend to travel in packs and to leave brains back home. Luckily, the villa is far enough from the town and nothing will disturb your quiet evenings and nights. 2 neighbouring villas are also out of sight and far enough for privacy.
North of the island has a lot to offer - I would specifically recommend an early evening drive to Paleokastritsa and back, and a trip to Mount Pantokrator (warning - parking right up there near monastery can be a real challenge, so you may opt for an easier parking somewhat lower and then walk up a few hundred meters like many others do).
What I definitely recommend is to hire a boat! No need for a license - if you drive anything with a motor, you'll be fine. Try it once and you'll be sold. We were renting boats like every other day. When dickering with the rental companies, ask them for 40HP boats - most of them can offer you those (albeit at a price premium), and it is totally worth it: the performance is so much better than your garden variety 30HP engines (legal maximum allowed for non-licensed "skippers").
OK, guess I should say more about the villa (it is a property review, at the end of the day). This is a very interesting building from the design point of view, it has a unique charm and character and worth its (admittedly hefty) price tag. When we were there, the aircon in the tower bedroom did not work and the internet was down, but even that could not spoil the fun!
Special interest holidays:

The yacht is available with a skipper for day trips or week booking.
By just standing at the veranda you can spot the beautiful landscape and the sea which is only 1.7km away. Manavra is in the north-east of Corfu, which happens to be the most beautiful part of the whole island. Alongside the coast you can find breathtaking chain of beaches which offer you great nightlife and boat rental. The positioning of the villa is ideal not only because of the beach nearby but also because it is located between town and countryside which enables great sightseeing.
The villa is located in the borders of 'San Marco' an old Venetian village which is 17km from Corfu town and its port and airport. A car is recommended and parking is free inside of the gate.
The health care centre is only 2.4km away. There are only 300 meters separating the house from an old Byzantine church with beautiful fresco's. The house and its surroundings create a big deal of outdoor activities clouding hiking, walking and mountain biking. The 'Panorama' bar offers... moon juice and the night life awaits you in 1.7km of distance.
If you are biking enthusiasts our villa is the ideal place to be. For your information the local mountain biking club organises trips in the surrounding area and it will be very easy to join them as they pass in front of the villas gate.
