The Contemporary Atolikos Villa, Corfu

The spectacular northeast coast of Corfu is home to some exceptional luxury properties – none more beautiful, perhaps, than Atolikos House. Atolikos is a triumph of professional design, a subtle combination of traditional Corfiot and Venetian features expressed in local building materials fashioned by island craftsmen and perfectly in accord with its breathtaking natural surroundings.

Decorated almost entirely in white, the rooms are illuminated by multiple French windows that emphasise the beauty of the views – the rippling Ionian Sea, the mysterious mountains of Albania. A magnificent fresh water infinity pool that seems to merge effortlessly with the view is connected to a shared jetty by stone steps and a path that meanders invitingly through the lovely natural garden. Atolikos enjoys the kind of peace and privacy that is becoming increasingly rare in Corfu, yet the amenities of the resort of Kassiopi are within walking distance, and when rented together with the other property on the estate, can comfortably sleep up to 20.
