Set on a 9-stremma clifftop site with private seafront access, the eight-bedroom Villa Atokos, virtually glass-walled along its entire frontage, overlooks the sea, east to the coast and mountains of Albania, with the magical site of ancient Butrint in full view, and south to mainland Greece and the Ionian islands.
The entrance to the villa is marked by three huge wooden doors from India and opens into a twenty-metre wide sitting room with prime oak floors and exposed ceiling beams. The ceiling is lit with Linear LED uplighting, remote-controlled as are the electric curtains, that, when necessary, shade the windows with their breathtaking view south down the Corfu Channel and east to ancient Butrint. On the west side of the sitting room there is a study with direct access to the outside terrace. The dining room has large dining table seating 12 persons and a fireplace.
The kitchen has an enormous granite-topped island unit in the centre, lit by 3 hanging stainless steel lamps. There are two ovens, a microwave oven, coffee machine, 2 warming drawers, 6-ring gas hob, TV and plenty of storage, plus all the usual fixtures that you would expect in a well-equipped kitchen. Adjoining the kitchen is walk in ladder storage room, staff office and staff entrance. Steps outside the kitchen door lead down to the main pool and bar areas.
There are eight bedrooms in total, two master suites, four guest suites and two further bedrooms. The master suites have an en-suite bath, shower and dressing room while bedrooms 3 and 4 have en-suite his-and-hers shower rooms and dressing rooms. The upper master suite has access to a private landscaped area with its own covered jacuzzi. The second master suite, on the lower floor, features a large free-standing egg-shaped bath illuminated by a chandelier. All bedroom windows open on to outdoor terraces.
The swimming pool terrace is positioned between the main house and guest accommodation. The freshwater infinity pool is divided into two sections; the upper pool is 22m x 12m and drains into the lower pool (12m x 6m) via a four-level waterfall. At the end of the terrace, a tower houses a glass-walled lift that takes you down to the fully equipped bathing terraces at sea level. On the second floor of this tower there is a room dedicated to massage. The four seafront terraces are completely private, equipped with parasols, sun loungers and a small bar. Wooden decking facilitates access to the water or to board a boat.
The house is equipped with silent air-conditioning. Additional facilities include a yoga terrace, an outdoor jacuzzi, a well-equipped gym, a home cinema and a hammam steam room.
The house is situated in Nissaki and is a 3 minute walk along the coastal path from Kaminaki and 15 minute coastal walk to Agni where there are three great restaurants. There are boats to hire and lots of watersports in Kaminaki. Kassiopi village is a 20 minute drive away, a lively little resort village with a harbour, an interesting history, and lots of shops, bars and restaurants. Corfu town and the airport are a 40 minute drive away.
