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 five beautifully appointed en-suite bedrooms on the ground floor and a further two en-suite bedrooms in the basement, there is plenty of room to spread out. The luxurious living area leads out onto a spacious veranda, and a magnificent 30-metre pool running the full length of the villa is surrounded by an expansive terrace, offering indulgent opportunities for sun-worshipping and soaking up the tantalising views across the bay.

Entertaining at The House is a real pleasure, with a state-of-the-art kitchen and ample outside space for leisurely lunches and carefree candlelit suppers. To make life even easier we can organise an in-villa cook service (payable locally), just one of the helpful extras that your Simpson Concierge can arrange to make your stay as carefree and memorable as possible.

If the call of the sea lures you away from this effortlessly chic villa, stroll round to the delightful gardens of the Bella Mare Hotel and from here it is a hop and a skip to the charming poolside bar and fabulous pebble beach. When you're feeling energetic, kayaks and SUPs are available for hire and we can arrange boat rental if you're looking to explore further afield. 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.

Mrs Lynn Watts, September 2023

Having travelled with Simpson numerous times, we knew we wouldn’t be disappointed. What an amazing treat to stay in such a beautiful villa. The view, the pool – all enjoyed. We’ve had a lovely meals in local restaurants. Sad to be leaving. Thank you Simpson team at home and in resort.

The Watts and Ash families, September 2023

Another wonderful week at The House spent with our family and partners. Enjoyed the beautiful villa views, swimming from cove to cove, coffees at The White House and Crystal Beach bar as rewards! Delicious taverna dinners in Avlaki and Kalami, olive oil tasting and bee-keeping visit, and ‘A’ level results! So much fun and warm, wonderful memories made again. Thank you.

The Savage and Pearman families, August 2023

We had a great stay. The house is beautiful, and Jo and the Bella Mare team helped with all our enquiries and looked after us very well indeed. Lelia did a fantastic job keeping the place immaculate for us, and we really enjoyed the location, the view, and the beautiful peace and luxury of this spot. Thank you Simpson Travel.

Mrs Sue Ellwood, August 2023

The week at The House has gone too fast…a wonderful holiday of pool and sea, swimming, lounging, planning the next feast as the previous one ended. I think we’ve eaten the best of any Greek holiday – both Cavo Barbero and Avlaki tavernas are excellent and so welcoming. Corfu has surprised – a beautiful island.

Simpson Travellers, July 2023

What a special villa this is. Every comfort has been thought of, it's a luxurious space, the views are wonderful - and that pool!

Tessa Allingham, July 2023

A brilliant week in a superb villa. Celebrating 200 years (40th, 40th, 50th and 70th!). The staff were brilliant and Jo was so helpful. Cavo Barbero was brilliant. Views from the pool were amazing and enjoyed by all three generations.

The Streaks, Hirsts and Stringers, May 2023

Had a lovely 2 weeks in this beautiful villa, enjoying G&Ts watching the sunset over the bay. We have loved Corfu and spending time with our family, will definitely be coming back. Our favourite days were hiring the boats at Avlaki and docking at different bays to swim and eat. Sad to be leaving but be back very soon!

Tallentire family, September 2022

Fantastic week at 'the House', ages 21 to 83 and fun for all. Long lazy days interspersed with boating, paddleboarding, trips over to the nudist bay and walks to Kassiopi and over the headland to Agios Stephanos. Lots of fun, Jo very helpful.

The Watsons and the Layzells, September 2022

We had the most amazing week at Bella Mare. The view is beautiful and the people are so friendly here. It's a wonderful villa and has everything you would need. We recommend Kassiopi as there is a lovely restaurant and little shops. Thank you for an amazing holiday.

Tyler family, August 2022

Thank you for the most beautiful and happy week in your villa. We have had a fantastic time and really do not want to leave! Avlaki is a lovely bay and we have been very luck to have enjoyed it for a week. We hope to be back! Highlights: lots of swims from Koloura to Agni via Kaminaki; trips to Arrilas and Pantokrator; Corfu Town and the fortress; sundowners at Bella Mare hotel; Avlaki swimming and taverna dinners; jumping off the jettty; loving the villa! Thank you!

The Savage/Pearman families, August 2022

What a fabulous week we’ve had – we were blessed with beautiful weather, calm sea and the best Greek hospitality everywhere we went. Rania was exceptional and Layla did a fabulous job each morning. Not easy with a villa full with nine people. The holiday could not have gone better.

The McCarthy family, September 2019

Simply stunning! The house is superb, every modcon. The view over Avlaki Bay, day or night, from a bedroom or terrace or the fabulous pool will live with us all. Rania is a superb ambassador for Simpson and Laifa so quiet and efficient. These people make a stay so much more than just the accommodation. We seriously have not stayed in a better property in Greece – ever! Thank you so much – quality service that will service Simpson so well.

Keith, Lynne, Benjamin & Emily, September 2019

What a superb holiday. The House @ Bella Mare is absolutely stunning! Great views over Avlaki Bay in such a fabulous property with every modern amenity and so much space and the 30m infinity pool a few steps from each of the five upstairs bedrooms was to die for. The external table, chairs and loungers were of such a high quality, just incredible. Talking of that Rania, the concierge, and indeed Gaynor were both great. They were so professional, knowledgeable and so friendly they are an absolute credit to Simpson Travel....well done all. We were transferred here from another property which may have seen some external disruption so we did not stop smiling all week, thank you Aaron in the UK office. This will certainly mean Simpson will be a go to company going forward without doubt, thank you so much.

Keith, Lynne, Benjamin & Emily, September 2019

What a treat for the senses this beautiful house is. The gentle lapping of waves, the view we will never forget, the soft beds and the smell of flowers and pine. A stunning holiday we will never forget. All the team is so welcoming and lovely. Thank you.

Neil, Nikki, Alan, Lola, Louie & Millie, August 2019

We’ve shared a very special week at this lovely villa. It has been peaceful, scenic (air conditioning wonderful). Rania is a special lady who goes out of her way to make things happen and all the staff are friendly and helpful. Certainly a week of happy memories, thank you.

Noel, Miriam, Sue & Maddie, August 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

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

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.
