Overview

Pool Modern Ideal for Kids Hot Tub Walk to Beach Walk to Village All Bedrooms En-Suite

Encircled by private gardens, a beautiful pool and chic interior design throughout, Villa Medea is a stylish haven tucked away in Dassia, Corfu. Just 120m from Dassia beach, the villa has classic cream exteriors with brown shutters. The villa has a warm, welcoming feel and plenty of charm, as well as being seriously photogenic!

The gorgeous living space is decorated in romantic blush pink tones with warm wood and gorgeous wicker details. Furnished with a range of cosy textures, such as the fluffy honey-coloured rug and crochet-style cushions and stool, the space has a hygge-like feel. Sink into the soft grey sofa and unwind with an iced coffee. Circles are a motif through the property, from the striking bamboo chair and framed mirrors in the bedroom.

The home has two delightful bedrooms that can sleep four people. With statement headboards with mosaic art, golden hanging pendant lamps and double beds that can convert to twins, every detail has been carefully curated. Fresh cream walls and floor to ceiling windows with fluttering matching drapes ensure the space is bright and airy. There are satellite televisions in every room and balconies around the property. Ensuites are crafted from marbled pink natural stone with enormous circular mirrors, a glass-encased shower and glamorous silver finishings.

Outside, the sparkling aquamarine pool is a real highlight. There's plenty of space to swim peacefully and take a refreshing dip, with poolside sunbeds and an outdoor shower next to it, and the jacuzzi with its separate decking area is so luxurious. Let your stresses melt away as you unwind with a glass of fizz here. The poolside bale is the ultimate relaxation spot, with a huge day bed with sofas and a coffee table - we wouldn't blame if you never left this spot all holiday! Whip up a feast in the fully equipped kitchen, then enjoy your meal alfresco in the bale.

The spacious lawn is perfect for sunbathing and picnic-ing - there is a single exotic tree that creates a focal point and some shade.

*** Villa Medea can accommodate up to a maximum of 4 guests, but being close to Villa Corintha and Villa Lanassa, larger groups of 6 and 8 guests (respectively) can be accommodated - please follow the links for more information

Dassia is a quieter area popular with luxury hotels along the coastline and with stunning views of the Albanian mountains. The most famous attraction in the area is Dassia Beach, a shingle beach where guests can get stuck into a variety of thrilling watersports. Whether you want to try waterskiing, paragliding or taking a pedalo out on the calm waters, there's no end of aqua-based fun here. Another beach within 300m of the villa is Agios Nikolas, with its rocky coves and an ancient church that stands proudly above it.

Corfu is the second largest of the Ionian Islands and has plenty of Venetian influence in the architecture, as well as Byzantine. The name means 'a pair of peaks' as the island has two hills topped with fortresses that once defended the island from the Ottoman Empire. Add delightfully friendly locals and great Corfiot cuisine, and you've got everything you need for a fantastic holiday.

Corfu Town has a myriad of narrow, winding lanes, filled with Venetian and Neoclassical architecture, painted in cheerful ochre and sienna. Just off Spianada Square, where locals congregate, is the Old Fortress on the site of an acropolis atop a rocky peninsula. Visitors can walk up to the highest point for breathtaking views, passing a small chapel and museum along the way.

A great day trip is to Gastouri, also known as Acheillio, after the famous summer palace of Empress Sisi of Austria. Located just 500m from the village entrance, the palace draws intrigue due to its historical and cultural significance. Built in 1898 by an Italian architect with inspiration from Greek mythology, iconic sculptures of Zeus, Hera and Achilles himself were created by a German sculptor for the beloved Empress of Austria. The palace is surrounded by dazzling gardens and has incredible views of the Ionian Sea.

Why not visit nearby Pontikosini (Mouse Island) where there is a tiny Byzantine monastery surrounded by pine and cypress trees. According to local legend, this is the spot of Ulysses' ship after it was turned to stone by the wrath of Poseidon. The island gets its name as it's said to be the outline of a mouse when you look at it from a bird's eye view.

There are so many lovely beaches in Corfu, you could try a different beach every day! An amazing beach close to the villa is Agios Gordious beach with its green water and powdery sand. The beach gets its name from the church that is literally on the beachfront. The road that leads up to Agios Gordious is particularly scenic, lined with vineyards and olive trees.

Canal d'Amour is a popular beach in Sidari, on the northwest side of the island. This beach has gorgeous sand and turquoise water, but the unique element is the rectangular rock with a gap that you can swim through on a calm day. It's said that couples who swim through together will get married within the year.

The Island/Getting There

One of the largest and greenest of the Ionian Islands, Corfu is far more than its trademark blue-hued seas and sandy coastline. With its UNESCO World Heritage status and unbeatable strolling opportunities, there is no better place to start exploring than the main town and its historic old quarter, where ancient churches, scattered ruins and a handful of museums mean Corfu’s layers of history can be found just about everywhere. And if you’re in need of a cosy abode, take a look at our flawless villas in Corfu.

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

A holiday in Corfu is bound to be a thrilling and memorable experience for children of all ages. There's plenty for kids to experience all over the island, from the glorious beaches to interactive, child-friendly museums. At the villa, kids will have a great time swimming and splashing around, especially in the jacuzzi!

One of the best water parks in Europe is right in the centre of the island. Aqualand boasts 36 water slides and 15 adventure pools, and caters for the whole family. There are lazy rivers, rafting and kayaking galore, and for little ones, there are dedicated shallow pools with gentle waterfalls. Daredevils will love the Extreme Zone which has slides with sheer drops and a black hole.

Casa Parlante, Corfu's most interactive museum, is bound to impress the most sceptical of kids. Slot the historical objects displayed into the scenes, and watch them enjoy the sensory interaction of sounds, smells and even robotics. It really brings to life what life was like for Corfu's 18th-century nobility.

One of the most spectacular ways to see the island is by horseback. Guided treks are available that wind through charming local villages, picturesque paddocks with sheep and olive groves. New riders will adore cantering through the countryside - watch them fall in love with horse riding.

Of course, a day at the beach is always a popular idea with children - Agios Gordious beach is bound to captivate little ones - swimming in the jade waters, strolling on the sand and building sandcastles. Locals are very welcoming towards children and are often slipping them little presents and tasty treats, especially in the tavernas. Adventurous kids will love trying out Corfiot cuisine!

Marine lovers will be extremely happy if you visit the Aquarium in Corfu! Giving them the chance to get up close and personal with exotic fish, eel and lobsters, it's a great place to cool off from the midday sun. And if the kids are really awestruck, take them on a glass-bottomed boat to see the sea creatures in their natural habitat. Getting to see beneath the waves will be a dream come true!
