Villa Loukia at Kelia, luxury villa, in Walking Distance of Kassiopi, Corfu - Peaceful, very Private Location, EOT Reg. Aiming to be Carbon Neutral.
3 WEEKS LEFT FOR 2022
Villa Loukia is located in a stunning position, nestled into the quiet olive covered hillside above Kassiopi in the hamlet of Kelia. The views from the villa across the bay of Avalaki and to Albania beyond are truly stunning. The property was new for 2008, having been bought by an English family with many years experience of holidaying in Corfu. Attention has therefore been paid to equipping the villa with all the necessary equipment for a relaxing and happy holiday whilst making sure it remains comfortable and practical for both couples and families alike. The villa is also equipped with items such as hairdryers and beach towels in order to reduce the need for two much expensive baggage on the flight over. Also for guest convenience every room has a 3 pin English socket as well as the standard 2-pin and USB sockets. No need to bring adapters.
The location is quiet and private - away from other properties - however unlike many villas in NE Corfu, the situation above Kassiopi means that it is possible to walk (1 km - 10-15 mins) to shops/restaurants in the evening, leaving the car at home. The nearest supermarket is just 5 mins walk or 2 mins in the car. The famous village of Kalami and the lovely secluded coves of that area is just a 10-15 mins drive. The pool is large (5m x 10m) and in 2015 we added heating which has been loved by guests using the villa in low season. We do now have to unfortunately make a charge for heating.
Villa Loukia was extended and extensively upgraded between 2015 and 2019. All 3 bedrooms were re-tiled and all the en-suite bathrooms are new, modern and luxurious. The Master Bedroom was extended to create a 'master suite' with a sofa bed at one end for those with young children. There is also ample room for a travel cot too. The luxurious bathroom has a bath and separate shower. It has great lighting, courtesy night lights, extraction fan, heated mirror and a shaving mirror.
The 'Blue' Bedroom and bathroom have been re-modelled so that the twin beds (can be made up as a double) are opposite the amazing view, the floor is the same gorgeous tiles as the master, the bathroom is larger than it used to be and really luxurious with a wet-room style shower, loads of modern lighting, automatic night lights, heated mirror and magnified shaving mirror. All the details you could ever need. Both upstairs bedrooms have double doors leading onto the upstairs sun terrace.
Downstairs is the Orange Bedroom and bathroom which have been upgraded to the same standard as the other two bedrooms/bathrooms. It has the advantage of having french windows that lead out onto the terrace and pool.
The whole of the living area has also been re-tiled to match the rest of the property and extended with a fantastic 'picture' window that takes in the view across Avlaki to Albania beyond. This gives a wonderful indoor dining area for low season. In the living room there is also a double sofa bed for extra guests by prior arrangement only.
And finally, we extended the upstairs terrace, giving the villa a 'sun terrace'. It really is a fabulous addition and gives yet another area in which to escape those by the pool, lie in the sun or to just sit and read a book whilst taking in the amazing views. There really is plenty of choice at Villa Loukia.
We are really pleased with the results of the all the work we have done and guests seem just as pleased!
At Villa Loukia we strive to be as carbon neutral as possible. In addition to the PVS system on the roof making electricity for the grid, the water is heated by solar and the pool is heated with an air source heat pump, We endeavour to employ local staff, to reduce the mileage done and also the laundry is run to high eco-standards. And finally, each autumn I calculate the carbon used to run Villa Loukia, including ALL the flights taken by us and the guests to get there and I offset the carbon at Carbonfootprint by supporting their Community Projects Portfolio in Developing Countries.
This pledge we make is personal and on behalf of our Granddaughter, Imogen, so that she and her descendants can have a future that equals the life that we have had. It does not come at any financial cost to our guests.
