NEW FOR 2021

 

Ouranos is the Greek word for sky, and a fitting name for this magnificent new villa, nestled in perfect seclusion between the endless blue of the heavens above and the sea below.

It takes vision and enormous skill to build in such a spot, and the designer-owner of Ouranos (who is also the brains behind Simpson Secret Corfu) has drawn on years of experience to deliver an exceptional yet understated holiday home within easy reach of Nissaki and all the attractions of Corfu’s north east coast. The interiors are beautifully finished using natural materials and a neutral palette, creating a calming atmosphere that invites you to relax as soon as you walk in the door. Clean lines and uncluttered spaces draw your eye to the view, a breathtaking sweep of olive green and sapphire blue that stretches as far as Corfu town and the Greek mainland beyond. This glorious panorama is yours to savour from virtually every corner of the house, with glass-panelled balconies to ensure that nothing breaks your line of sight. With ample sunny and shady spots, you can spend the entire day outside, from the cool of early morning to the pale lilac glow that signals evening drinks on the terrace or perhaps a last swim before dinner.

Stylish, comfortable and totally private, Ouranos is honeymoon heaven, but also easily large enough for two couples or a family with older children. And despite the hideaway feel, it’s just five minutes’ drive to Nissaki and Kaminaki, putting you at the heart of all the classic boats-and-beaches charm and excellent taverna dining that give this coast such enduring appeal.

Customer feedback

Our choice of Greek properties is as diverse as the islands themselves, ranging from simple seaside charm to genuine luxury and style. Much of our portfolio is privately owned, and price alone is therefore not a universal guide. We contract all our accommodation in person, and each property has its individual appeal. To help you make the right choice based on your own priorities, we have devised a simple grading guide to be considered in conjunction with each individual property description, awarding up to a maximum of five stars for the below categories.
