Villa Kanoni is a unique estate 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, and is only 20 minutes away from the Corfu Golf Club. The 10 acre estate is 40 meters above the sea and offers panoramic views looking over the Ionian Sea.
The Villa was completely renovated in 2001 to the very highest standards of design and quality. The style of the furnishings and decor is arranged for cool, simple elegant Mediterranean living. The undisputed highlight of the main house is the splendid 70 sq meter terrace.
Inside, a very large reception area with a big stone fireplace and an adjacent dining area, which connects with a covered outdoor dining terrace. There is a connecting office area, which opens onto a shaded terrace. A high quality gym with full equipment (Cybex), including a treadmill and a multi organ machine, allows guests to perform over 30 exercises.
The two large master bedrooms suites with AC & fan each open on a private terrace/balcony, and have large marble bathrooms with showers and separate bathtubs. There are four additional twin rooms with fans, each with a bath/shower room. These rooms open directly onto a terrace.
The 20x10meter seawater swimming pool is located 2 levels below the main house. With Moroccan marble and luscious green grass, this large area is perfect for entertaining and barbeques. With Pergolas, teak poolside furniture and a shower, the pool is as cool, elegant and comfortable as the main house. There is also a large pool house with two changing rooms, two shower rooms and two WC. It has its own completely equipped kitchen and a large outdoor bar and barbeque area.
As the estate is built on several levels, there are 3 main garden areas:
The pool area, the level above the pool area which has a shaded terrace and view of the sea and the gardens located on the level above the main house, the largest, with a beautiful view over looking the sea and Pontikonissi, featuring a fountain, grape vines shading a large area, and a small cosy patio among the shrubs.
The pine forest cloaking the property covers 5 acres and scents the air. This is a wonderful place to appreciate the beauty of the estate. With hundreds of century old olive and cypress trees, as well as, other indigenes species, privacy is ensured, while framing classic vistas of hills, bays and open sea.
The church was built around 1920 and is beautifully and naturally situated in the forest.
A path winds down to the pebble beach and Plateau, that has a changing room, outdoor shower, WC, bar and sitting/bathing area, which gives access to the pier (12x2meters). This area is a well-protected natural harbour, even for large yachts.
