- Grand hillside property

- Stunning sea views
Surrounded by stately cypresses and swaying Italian palms, this grand hillside property combines sweeping views, spacious, elegant interiors and an exhilarating sense of open space. From the double-height beamed ceilings of the main living area to the generous pool and terraces, Villa Oliveto is a wonderful place to relax and entertain family or friends. The outdoor bar has everything you need for a memorable gathering: wine fridge, bar seating and wired for sound; not forgetting the spectacular backdrop of the Ionian Sea sparkling below. Inside there are further distractions, including table football, a large TV room and a full-sized pool table.
The villa is located on the sought-after north east coast of Corfu, enviably private yet close to beaches, boat hire and the coastal path. There are tavernas within a couple of minutes’ drive, though with everything to hand at the villa, there is no great incentive to go anywhere.

We had a lovely time in Corfu. The north east of the island has a gentle feel to it with beautiful beaches and tavernas that cater well for little children. The team at Simpson Travel are great. The office in London was able to accommodate the details we wanted including a cook to make life as relaxing as possible for us. This level of service continued on the island where nothing was too much trouble for Bev and Julie. Bev was happy to help with any detail – from making sure we had a nice table for dinner to buying balloons for a birthday party. Villa Oliveto is a very fine villa and is completely as described in the brochure and on the website. In particular the air conditioning really works well and the pool is amazing. What is maybe not so clear on the website is that Villa Oliveto is ideal for a family with little children. The pool is to the side of the house and Simpson Travel arranged for a gate to be fitted so that the pool cannot be accessed from the house unless it is particularly opened up. With a young family we thought this was perfect and it gave us great confidence to let the children play on the main balcony in the mornings without being worried about the pool. It is also something which seems quite unusual for villas in Corfu. The cook service Simpson Travel arranged was also great. Lynn and Zoe made lovely food for us as a couple after bedtime. They were also happy to come early for barbecues for the whole family and at lunchtime for a little girl's birthday party. The chocolate birthday cake Lynn and Zoe made was the best ever (according to our son). The team in Corfu somehow made it feel like we were staying with family. We enjoyed our holiday so much we will be coming back next year!
Mr Marks – July 2016
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.
* For further clarification on Facilities and Amenities, please view the 'Details' tab for each property or speak to one of our experienced sales consultants.
