Part of our Exclusive Collection, this stunning contemporary villa with panoramic views across Avlaki Bay offers luxury living on a grand scale. Here, on the verdant hillside above the Bella Mare Hotel, you can enjoy all the delights of a private home with the freedom to access the facilities of our lovely beachfront hotel whenever you please.

This exquisite villa, designed with relaxation in mind, blends clean-modern lines and sumptuous soft-furnishings to create restful, elegant interiors; ideal for larger groups to gather together in comfort and style. With seven beautifully appointed en-suite bedrooms and a luxurious living area leading out onto a spacious veranda, there is plenty of room to spread out and indulge; whilst a magnificent 30-metre pool running the full length of the villa is surrounded by an expansive terrace, offering glorious opportunities for sun worshipping and soaking up the tantalising views across the bay.

Entertaining here is a real pleasure, with a state-of-the-art kitchen and ample outside space for leisurely lunches and carefree candlelit suppers. A cook is available on request, allowing all guests a welcome chance to unwind and absolve themselves of responsibility; while our Simpson Concierge is on hand to undertake any day-to-day arrangements and make your stay as care-free and memorable as possible.

If the call of the sea lures you away from this effortlessly chic villa, steps at the side of the property lead directly into the delightful gardens of the Bella Mare Hotel and from here it is a hop and a skip to the charming poolside bar, fabulous beach and Corfu Sailing Centre, where windsurfing, kayaking and paddle-boarding are available. For dining out, there are two excellent tavernas moments from the hotel – or vibrant Kassiopi, with its shops, waterfront restaurants and low-key nightlife is a five-minute drive. Upmarket Agios Stephanos is also easily accessible, popular for its pretty boutiques, tavernas and atmospheric bars.

The House @ Bella Mare is a rare find; offering spacious, high-end luxury a stone’s throw from one of the loveliest beaches in this fashionable north-east corner of Corfu. It is an enticing proposition for extended families and groups of friends looking for an exclusive retreat in this spectacular location.

Customer feedback

We had an unsurpassed two week family holiday in the House @ Bella Mare and all 10 of us had a brilliant time. The location is superb, the villa itself is outstanding, beautiful in design and appointment and the stunning pool sets off the whole experience of staying there. Everything that we could have wished for was available in the villa and our one or two additional items (a baby bath and an additional clothes drying rack) were immediately supplied. The welcome pack was one of the best we've experienced and got the holiday off to a great and very relaxing start. It was an additional bonus to have access to the Bella Mare facilities including the pool bar, pool, private beach and the ready access to boat hire and the Corfu Sailing Centre in beautiful Avlaki Bay. Rania, our Simpson Concierge was wonderfully welcoming and made us feel completely at home. Nothing was too much trouble for her and her local knowledge was great. She felt more like a knowledgeable friend than a standard rep and always greeted us with a friendly smile and a chat. We will miss The House and have fantastic memories of a wonderful holiday at Bella Mare, among the best of our many visits to Corfu over the past 19 years.
Bill McKerrow – June 2019

 

The villa is truly wonderful – brilliant air-conditioning, beds, pool, sunbeds. Our concierge, Rania, is a wonderful support and a mine of information and Layla just makes the villa sparkle every day – we didn’t even realise she had been. Unforgettable holiday.
Families Hayes, Greig, Rotti & Higgins – July 2019

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.
