Description of the villa
Stone and bricks are the villa's main characteristic. The simple Corfiot style exterior hides a very stylish and warm interior. Most of the materials that have been used in the villa are restored and reused due to the owners' strong belief in protecting the environment. Many of those came from a neoclassical house that was demolished in Athens while others are local and from Corfu Town.
The asymmetrical wooden beamed ceiling covers both floors apart of the lounge and dining area which sit on the ground floor and have the height of both floors. This room is large, full of ample natural light and has an internal balcony where the study is. The wall with the big fireplace is made of stone with beautiful brick features. Next to it is the large kitchen with the impressive, original floor tiles and its wooden ceiling. Both rooms have access to the covered veranda that runs along the villa's side.
Stone floor, wooden beamed ceiling and an exterior fireplace create the perfect outdoor environment for al fresco dining, even in the mild winter days.
There are two bedrooms on the ground floor - one en-suite - a separate bathroom, the cloakroom and the laundry room. On the first floor is the beautiful master bedroom, a second bedroom and a bathroom. Both bedrooms have wooden floors and wooden beamed ceilings.
The garden is nicely maintained with the swimming pool sitting on a lower level at the right side of the house. All this area is stone tiles as well as the swimming pool. There is a covered area just before it, also ideal for dining, relaxing or protection from the sun in the hot summer days.
The property overlooks the beautiful west coast which is so different than the east one. The scenery here is spectacular and wild with hills and cliffs separating the different long and sandy beaches which are located less than 1 kilometer away.

This is a truly wonderful home...
“This is a truly wonderful home, great comfort, style and above all else it has a welcoming atmosphere. The grounds and views are exceptional as is the private location with good space for vehicles. I loved staying here and will go again as soon as I can arrange a trip to the magical Corfu"
A piece of paradise!...
“Amazing place and very nice people! The interior is very cozy with strong details. The garden and the view of the sea is a piece of paradise!”
“Dutch owned, located on Corfu, Villa Cecilia, owes much to traditional northern European house design; with living areas that are spacious and high ceilinged. Neutral colours throughout and skilful use of natural materials provide the perfect setting for a few handsome antiques and beautiful decoration and furnishing."
