About the property

Villa in Kavadades, Corfu, Ionian Islands, Greece - Peaceful And Secluded Idea For Couples And Families, 5 Mins Drive To Great Beaches And Local Resorts

Looking forward to breakfast on a shady patio lunch by you own private pool? A glass of wine on the balcony, watching the sun set? Then Cypress Tree Villa could be the perfect spot for you. Set within lush and peaceful olive and lemon groves above Arillas and close to the village of Kavadades in the North West of Corfu. This detached split level villa was built in 2010 and is furnished in a modern contemporary style. The villa is an ‘upside down’ arrangement built into the hillside to maximize the stunning rural views with the sea in the distance. There is a private pool and large ‘wrap around’ balcony to let you follow the sun or find a shady spot. Upstairs the patio doors retract into the walls creating a large open indoor/outdoor space designed to provide a stunning dining and relaxing space with views of the wooded valley and the sea beyond. The villa’s stunning pool is accessed from both levels and again offers views to the amazing countryside and distant coast. The villa has free wifi.

About Diane Laws

Tom and Diane Laws. We live in Dumfries and had our property built in 2010 after holidaying in Corfu for many years.

Diane Laws purchased this villa in 2010

Why Diane Laws chose Agios Georgios

We have always holidayed in the North of Corfu and love the sandy beaches on the West coast. We bought the land after falling in love with the tranquil setting but also it's close proximity to some small resorts such as Arilas.

What makes this villa unique

We will be using the villa for several months a year with our twins and want to make it a home from home for both us and our guests. So we hope we have achieved this by building a real house with pool and also set within a short distance of the conveniences we need such as supermarkets, restaurants and the beach while still keeping a quiet setting.

Lovely Villa in the Most Idyllic and Peaceful Location

  • 5 of 5

We have been holidaying in Arillas for many years and had a lovely relaxing stay at Cypress Tree Villa at the end of May. The rolling views down through the olive covered valley to the sea from the Villa are truly beautiful and can be seen from every level. The soothing sound of bird song, cicadas, bees and beetles were the only noises to punctuate the silence. We were very pleased with the newly installed wifi which was fast and far reaching and enabled us to keep in touch with our family at home. The nearest Taverna at the end of the road, the Mon Amour, serves excellent food but we loved to eat overlooking the sea at Gratsellas Taverna and enjoyed the drive down to Arillas through Olive Groves and farmland. Everything we needed to enjoy our stay was provided and we can't wait to return. Thank you Diane for allowing us to use your Villa.

Pefect villa in stunning surroundings

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What a gorgeous villa in stunning surroundings. We had everything the four of us needed (2 adults and 13 year old twins) for a relaxing week. The villa was spotless and very peaceful, yet close to lovely beaches with crystal clear water (Agios Georgios being a particular favourite). Mon Amour at the end of the road served lovely food, and the local baker and mini market had all we needed. We also found great Tavernas in Afionas and other surrounding towns and villages. We were delighted there was no wifi. There was however adequate mobile reception if you needed it. A car is essential and it was fun to explore the island. Diane provided brilliant directions from Corfu town and there is a comprehensive information pack in the villa. We had a truly amazing time.

A very comfortable villa in an unrivalled setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderfully relaxing holiday in Cyprus Tree Villa. Diane provided brilliant directions from Corfu airport to the villa ( a car is a must) and from the moment we arrived we felt at home. The views are lovely and can be seen from almost anywhere in and around the villa. We most enjoyed sitting on the terrace in the evening and watching the sun go down over the olive groves on the hillside. It's not far to the small but pretty resort of Arillas and also Afionis, where there are spectacular views of the coast and bays. And Sidari is also not far if you want a bit more life. We loved our stay here and miss it so much!

Haven in the trees

  • 5 of 5

We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay in this very well-appointed villa in a beautiful and quiet part of Corfu. The owners supply excellent directions and useful information on the area.

As it is on a hill-side overlooking a villa looking down to the sea, it does have steep slopes that would be difficult for someone with poor mobility. Also there is no wifi and poor mobile coverage but everything else for a superb holiday. A car is a necessity.

The beautiful quiet sandy beach of Arillas is a 5 minute drive away with it selection of tavernas, bars and shops. This is a quiet resort, with a long sandy beach and crystal shallow waters ideal for families. With beautiful sunsets it is an ideal spot for evening walks or a delicious evening meal in one of the many locally run tavernas. The wide sandy bay of Agios Georgios (North) is 15 minutes away and idea for buckets and spades.


The airport and ferry port is 50 minutes drive away and car hire is advisable.


The nearest beach (Arillas) is 2 km away. Kavadades is 1 km away with a small supermarket, bakery and ‘grill room’. There is a taverna within a few minutes walk of the villa.

Further Details:

The area is a paradise for nature lovers with great flora and fauna and walking opportunities through the woods that immediately surround the villa.
