CLIO AND ERATO, Vigla, CorfuRef: 10299
These villas are designed in a minimalist style to take full advantage of their unique position on the hillside above Kalami and Kouloura.
Use of original features make Clio, a two bedroomed villa, stand out from the crowd, and its horizon pool overlooking the hillside down to the sea and Albania beyond is surrounded with a large paved terrace with plenty of space for dining out and sunbathing.
Clio is remarkably secluded, situated as it is behind a high wall and not overlooked at all on the pool side which looks over the best of the view.
The old arched entrance door leads into a spacious open-plan living room with dining area and a well-equipped kitchen. The three areas are separated by the clever use of different floor surfaces, columns and half walls. There is also a bathroom next to the entrance door. Two good-sized double bedrooms with exposed natural stone walls, and a further modern bathroom complete the accommodation.
Throughout the property, the owner's attention to detail is in evidence. Modern design mingles successfully with old floor tiles and an occasional antique piece of furniture. The large expanse of outside terrace is paved with a variety of different tiles and stones adding visual interest to the area.
Entering Erato one's eye is immediately drawn to the huge wall of glass looking out over the pool and the view beyond. This is open-plan living at its best - an ultra modern shiny red kitchen is situated to one side, against a rustic stone wall, and, though simply furnished, the rest of the living area reflects the style of its artist owner.
The house has one main bedroom and bathroom. A short walk past the pool leads to another double bedroom and en suite bathroom on the same level, and partly external stone steps lead down to two huge storage areas, and a third bedroom and bathroom.
Largely a summer villa because of the external access to some of the rooms, this property would nevertheless be ideal for a couple for year round living.
The villa has its own particular charm and character, and whilst it is situated close to other villas, it is well screened and very private.
The cluster of houses that makes up the hamlet of Vigla is within walking distance for an evening stroll, and the beaches at Kalami and Kouloura are just 10 minutes drive away down the hill.
These villas have been successfully rented for some years with a well-known tour operator. Details of the income are available on request. A combination of living in one and renting the other would also be possible for a purchaser of these properties.
An adjoining plot of land of 800 sq.m. with the possibility of building a further 200 sq.m. is also available for sale for 120,000 Euros.
