Description

Villa Ionia is unique. On the enchanting Greek Island of Corfu, there are no other rental villas that offer the combination of exquisite sea, sunset and local island views, 4 double ensuite bedrooms (all with wonderful sea views and large balconies) and, un-overlooked privacy. It's not surprising therefore that Villa Ionia is widely considered to be "one of the finest homes available for rent on the entire Western coast of Corfu" and has quickly become the choice of an increasing number of high profile guests from the film, television and music industries.

Ionia occupies a truly enviable position amidst 1.5 acres of tranquil hillside, clad in olive groves, cypress pines and a plethora of flora, yet the resort and beach are just a few minutes drive away or a pleasurable walk with a local shop and bakery just a short walk.

By day, lunch around the pool, or at one of the lovely authentic family run tavernas on the beachfront or in one of the country lanes behind. Or perhaps try one of the contemporary restaurants offering fabulous nouveau Greek cuisine. By evening the sunsets from Villa Ionia are amongst the most beautiful in the Mediterranean as they transform the local islands to silhouettes, never the same on any two nights.

Villa Ionia is best suited to independent travellers and in that respect we wanted to create a home that offers the comforts and facilities expected in a villa but in a location that is best described as being the real Greece, rather than a tourist version of it. To that end, we chose Arrilas, away from the madding crowds of the more touristic East coast and far enough away from other busier resorts.

In Arillas there are no hoards of rowdy BBQ boat day trippers flooding the tavernas and beaches and no wild nightclubs. There are instead a select choice of chic but inexpensive wine and cocktail bars for the perfect pre-dinner drink whilst watching the setting sun.

The rustic and peaceful location of the house opens to numerous walks through several local villages, along the coastline, through olive groves, meandering country tracks or cliff-top footpaths. On the seafront a small selection of water sports are available as is boat hire and the beach itself, awarded the coveted EU Blue Flag, is of fine golden sand and the incredibly clear water is shallow making it ideal for children.

For its size (about 2500 square feet) Villa Ionia is also one of the most spacious homes on the island. It was designed to maximise space and light - from its 65 square metre open plan lounge kitchen dinning room to the wonderful painted beamed and vaulted ceilings in the first floor bedrooms which all have very large balconies, and the wall to wall glass doors and window sections in the sea facing wall of the lounge. In fact every room in the house affords breathtaking seas views.

Naturally Villa Ionia is equipped with all essential modern facilities including air-conditioning throughout, dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, Ascaso professional espresso and cappuccino coffee machine, Wi Fi internet access, a large flat screen television screen and a host of other items and facilities. Most unusually rentals cars are included with Villa Ionia. Of course for those requiring the additional services of a cook, nanny, masseuse or even a personal guide, these can be arranged.

Externally, Villa Ionia offers lounge seating for 10, sun loungers, parasols and of course dinning table and chairs. Recent additions include: a 40 square metre poolside terrace extension finished in African hardwood decking and a large pergola covering the 12 seat stone and marble statement dining table with olive press wheels forming the base - a fabulous shady lunch spot.

The swimming pool has just been fitted with a new Eco-Clear mineral water oxygen purification system meaning no chlorine or other chemicals, no ozone, salt or reverse osmosis, just pure mineral water! - "It's like swimming in Evian" ! Across the shallow end of the swimming pool, full-width steps were incorporated into the design, making it a great place to sit with a cool drink.

Most people that choose Villa Ionia, do so for the same reasons that we chose to build it in this location. We look forward to welcoming you to Villa Ionia.

Superb

By Nicola929 on 31-Aug-2017

I have recently returned from a very memorable family holiday, at villa Ionia, to celebrate my Mother's 70th birthday. It was my first visit to the beautiful island of Corfu and I doubt I could have found a nicer place to stay. Ionia is a lovely stylish villa in an idyllic setting with magnificent views from both the large open plan living area and the well equipped poolside. In addition to the luxurious living space Ionia boasts four double bedrooms, each of which benefits from en suite facilities. Although far enough away to allow for total relaxation and privacy Ionia is just a stones throw away from the delightful resort of Arillas where you will find a choice of pleasant, inviting and affordable restaurants.

Villa Ionia - Breathtaking perfection

By Katie MacL on 26-Jun-2017

Villa Ionia is perfection. It nestles gently on a hillside olive grove overlooking Arillas, close enough to allow you to drink cocktails on the beach at sunset but far enough away to make you feel that you're within touching distance of heaven. As four lifelong school friends we celebrated 200 years of friendship and gorgeousness in a villa that technically sleeps 12 but could comfortably accommodate 20. With a fresh and calm double en suite room each and a huge amount of indoor and outdoor space to relax in, Ionia provided us with every luxury needed to ensure the perfect break from busy lives. John and Iannis met us at the airport and offered to drive us to Villa Ionia which was appreciated after a long journey. When we reached the villa, the view from the panoramic floor to ceiling windows was breathtaking as was the champagne chilling in the fridge! The stunning infinity swimming pool helped us keep cool as the sun beat down on the private deck and the giant shaded marble table was a perfect spot to enjoy long, lazy lunches. The car was ideal for popping to the supermarket or picking up freshly made bread from the local baker in the morning. Arillas is a 20 min walk downhill but a more challenging hike on the way back, so John advised us to pop into the family run Arkokal Travel to arrange taxis home - well worth the 7 Euros! Arillas isn't the most picturesque village in Corfu but it's comfortably one of the most friendliest with a warm atmosphere and great tavernas serving local dishes. John was the perfect host all week and saw to our every need, including driving us into the mountains for lunch at Foros Taverna, Old Peritheia cooked by Thomas and his wife (of Rick Stein fame). John also showed us the stunning delights of Akrotiri Lounge perched on the hill top overlooking Arillas and Agios Stefanos, where we could have stayed forever drinking cold wine and watching the the sun rise and set. Ionia was so enchanting we were reluctant to explore, but Corfu town and the monastery at Paleokastritsa were worth a visit. Corfu surprised us on so many levels including the lushness and similarity to Italian landscapes. Villa Ionia, Arillas, our host and our holiday were faultless - thank you, will definitely return one day x

Beautiful House owned and managed by beautiful people

By Travel_the_world21 on 01-Oct-2016

From beginning to end our Villa Ionia experience was absolutely amazing, John the owner was wonderful from beginning to end. We were concerned about arriving on the late flight and he asked a friend to meet us at the airport and showing us the way! Thanks again to Ian for taking us there! Upon arrival we met Marketa at the house, she was going to be our contact whilst in the villa and she made sure everything's was perfect for our arrival, much more than we could've expected, wine, cheese, fresh bread! We certainly hadn't plenty to enjoy our late check in and not have to worry about stocking th eladder till way after breakfast! The villa is everything and more than I had imagined, we had everything we needed at any time, perfectly equipped with great quality everyday items which made us feel really at home. There is space and harmony in this house, you have several areas to relax and enjoy the views. The pool is clean and fresh and again overlooking a wonderful scenery sea, town, mountains. The house and grounds are fabulous, the views form all the terraces and the sun deck are inspiring. I feel you want a hassle free holiday in a wonderful place and the best service Villa Ionia will certainly not disappoint! Thank you all for letting us into your home and letting us share your bit of heaven!
