Villa Basil is a beautiful 3 bedroomed luxury hideaway nestled amongst olive groves with uninterrupted sea views from its splendid Cliffside location. On the west coast of Corfu, set above the charming fishing village of Pentati and a short drive from the gorgeous beach resort of Agios Gordios, Villa Basil sleeps up to 6 guests and is one of three private villas on a small complex surrounded by lush nature. It enjoys privacy, tranquillity and sensational panoramic views of the Ionian Sea.

Pentati is a small Greek village, built on top of a hill overlooking the famous cliff Megalo Tholoto (Ortholithi). You will find a few traditional tavernas a mini market and small characterful coffee shops amongst colourful houses.
Down by the sea, there is a small fishing harbour and a small pebble beach and you can continue along the coast road to the beautiful sandy beaches of Agios Gordios (2km) and Paramonas (3km). This authentic and picturesque area is an excellent choice for families and groups looking for a relaxing break and is a fabulous base for exploring this magical island.

Set over 2 floors Villa Basil was built and furnished in 2022 and its elevated position allows for unobstructed sea views and ultimate privacy. The contemporary facade encloses minimalist interiors that are chic and inviting and feature fine finishes and bespoke furnishings.  Walls of windows bring the light and views inward and there are over 200 metres of fabulous terraces to enjoy along with tranquil gardens and an inviting infinity pool creating the ultimate inside-out living experience.

The Ground floor offers a lovely large living space with chic sofas, features a fireplace and is a wonderful chillout space for quiet moments. The large kitchen-dining room is a lovely backdrop for lively dinner parties and the well-equipped kitchen with an island is a chef’s delight and perfect for creating tasty treats.
Two of the delightful spacious bedrooms are located on the ground floor and each has its own private bathroom and direct access through sliding windows to the delightful terrace. Bedroom 3 is located upstairs and is pretty amazing with a beautiful separate bathroom and two fabulous terraces to enjoy panoramic views. This is an idyllic location for a sundowner or three.

There are 5,000 metres of outside space where you will be mesmerised by the fabulous views. Surrounded by oversized loungers, the fabulous 17 x 4 infinity pool has an overflow edge so you feel you are floating between sky and sea. You can relax with bubbles in the Jacuzzi and alfresco dining and barbeques are going to be amazing in this beautiful setting.

Villa Basil is set on a lovely tranquil hillside surrounded by breathtaking nature, nestled amongst olive trees and facing the glittering Ionian Sea. All highlights of this magical island can be reached within an hour by car as the island is only 39 miles in length.

Villa Basil is close to Pentati which has a population of around 300 and is a lovely example of a traditional Greek village. You can slow down to a truly authentic experience picking up everyday provisions and fresh local products from the well-stocked minimarket or sample a wonderful traditional restaurant where you might even be welcomed into the kitchen to see what’s cooking!
You can take a long walk or short drive along the coastal road to the splendid Agios Gordios Beach, one of the most popular beaches in Corfu. It took its name from the Church of Agios Gordios which is located literally on the sea, at the centre of the beach. This beautiful cove is nestled amongst the lush green mountain and surrounded by olive groves, vineyards and rocks. A huge rock, the Ortholithi, emerges from the sea. Agios Gordios offers a stunning landscape and a good choice of bars, restaurants, tavernas and supermarkets. It is no surprise that Agios Gordios is so popular.

Further south is Chalikounas Beach with its sensational, golden sands, the crystal clear deep blue waters of the Ionian Sea and the natural beauty of the protected Lake Korission. The beach enjoys a few beach tavernas and organised sections with sun loungers and umbrellas. There is a kite club in the middle section of the beach where you can learn to kitesurf. Visitors enjoy strolling along the 2.5 km beach or ambling around the glistening Lake Korission. The lake is a coastal lagoon separated from the sea by the fabulous Chalikounas Beach. The lake is home to native and migrating birds including seagulls, owls, buzzards, swallows and if you are lucky flamingos.

18km from the property, Corfu Town is one of the most attractive old towns of Greece and well worth a visit. Falling between two great Venetian coastal fortresses, it is a maze of cobbled narrow streets opening out onto elegant mansions, magnificent palaces, beautiful squares and no fewer than thirty-nine churches including the beautiful Church of Saint Spiridon. The entire Old Town is declared a UNESCO World Heritage site and is a tightly-packed warren of cobbled winding lanes bursting with lively bars, boutiques and fine restaurants. You will discover shops and stalls selling local items such as wild honey, fig cakes and handmade lace. There are also some interesting museums including the Byzantine Museum of Corfu which is housed in a 15th-century church. Others are the Museum of Ceramic Art, the D Solomos Museum and the Asian Art Museum.

Golf lovers are well catered for at the renowned 18-hole par 72, Corfu Golf Club in the lush Ropa Valley only a short drive up the coast towards Pelekas. Equipment rental is available.

And if you’re in need of a cosy abode, take a look at our flawless villas in Corfu.

Villa Basil is a fantastic choice for families with so much outside space for fun and games and a gorgeous infinity pool to entertain them. There are beautiful beaches only a short drive away and Corfu is a wonderful family-friendly Island that looks after the little ones well.

The beaches on Corfu are gorgeous and nearby Agios Gordios Beach is a long golden beach with lots of facilities and water sports. A great beach day destination for families is Paleokastritsa further up the North West coast where you will find secluded and beautiful beaches.  Aside from splendid beach days children love Aqualand, Corfu’s water park which is only 20 minute drive from the villa. It is just the place for a thrilling day out and offers a wonderful combination of fun, relaxation and adrenaline. The park caters for all ages and boasts a 350-metre-long lazy river, a wave pool, an interactive pool with a rope course and Jacuzzi, kayaking, family rafting and extreme slides such as the Double Twister, Catapult, the 12-metre high Kamikaze slides and the Hurricane Twist. For the very young ones, there is a baby pool, a pirate area and the kid’s fantasy island. You can buy a half-day pass, a full-day pass, a two-day pass or a weekly one.

Corfu Town is great for a family day out. Kids love climbing the walls of the Old Fortress, the Venetian Fort built in the 15th century and the New Fortress. The fortresses boast fantastic views of the turquoise waters. Also in Corfu Town, you can take a trip in Kalypso Star, the glass-bottomed boat that leaves the harbour to explore the Ionian Sea’s fascinating marine life. A 10-minute boat trip from Corfu Town takes you to the tiny island of Vidos where you can enjoy feeding the rabbits, seeing the peacocks, swimming and having lunch at the charming taverna.

For an adventure out of the water, you can head to the majestic Mount Pantokrator, the highest peak in Corfu. Dominating the island’s northeast region, you can enjoy amazing views of the whole of Corfu with a chance of spotting Albania and Italy in the distance. You can drive or hike to the mountain top, stopping off along the way at traditional Greek villages to enjoy delicious local Moscato wine and wonderful food. If you want to hike to the top you can start at the 14th-century village of Old Perithia for a 3-hour round trip through thick forests, olive groves and rocky terrain. At the top, you can visit the 17th-century monastery.

Reviews

  • Amazing!

    on 01/03/2023

    We are so happy that we found this place! Had a buisness trip to Corfu but decided to combine work with leisure for a couple of days. I loved relaxing with a nice view, there are beautiful olive trees all around the house and what was the most surprising - a heated pool. Amazing! The staff was very kind and made sure that I had a good wifi for work. All rooms have an amazing sea view. I slept very well and in the morning enjoyed a good cup of coffee because there was a coffee machine. Definitely coming back!

  • Loved our stay!

    We absolutely loved our stay! The villa is just incredible. Located in a beautiful place, very peaceful and surrounded by nature. The interior is amazing, every detail is well thought through. The place is very spacious and comfortable. Especially enjoyed the heated pool where we relaxed in the evening. Close by there is a cute local restaurant owned by Maki. Had a lovely dinner there! Overall loved this place and will definitely come back!
