    The popularity of Corfu is related to numerous reasons starting from its rich history, its Venetian influence and diversity as well as a stunning old town designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. But in Corfu where every inch of land is covered by green you can enjoy the added value of lush surroundings everywhere as well as in private residencies like Giardini.

    Giardini is a gated 16000 sq.m estate which consists of two sisters properties, ideal for larger groups and families, as it may accommodate up to 17 adults. The two villas have been designed to provide a fabulous island retreat, with breathtaking 180° sea views and lush Mediterranean gardens with mature trees and many flowers. Its two heated pools mean double the fun and lots of space to unwind and relax.

    One pool is 22m by 5m infinity including tub plus additional in-water sun loungers’ area and the other one is a 13m by [5.5-8.5m] L shaped fenced pool. Plush seating and designer furniture give an elegant touch while sliding doors and high ceilings in connection with extensive patios and outdoor lounging and dining areas guarantee the ultimate inside and outside living.

    The traditional solid brick is extensively used in both villas giving a warm natural feel. Both villas dispose four master suites with sea views and four either twin or king bedrooms with sea or garden views.

    Each villa of the estate can be booked separately.The Estate is daily serviced by two housekeepers, a gardener and concierge team. A private Chef with his assistant can be booked on request so that guests can enjoy a seamless, relaxing holiday experience.

    About The Area

    Sitting in the most northwesterly corner of Greece, Corfu is an elegant and cosmopolitan island, wearing the mantle of its colourful Venetian history with style.‘Somewhere between Calabria and Corfu the blue really begins…you are aware of a change in the heart of things: aware of the horizon beginning to stain at the rim of the world: aware of islands coming out of the darkness to meet you’.So begins Lawrence Durrell’s 1945 ode to Corfu, Prospero’s Cell. Even today, visitors to the island often arrive by sea, approaching from Italy in the west, of the Greek mainland in the east.Emerging in the early morning sunshine, the pastel-hued houses above Corfu Town’s old port are a jumble of slim tiers with narrow passages running between them, made brilliant with washing hung out to dry from every balcony like festive bunting. The tall Venetian mansions display ancient coats of coloured paint, blurred by successive winters and giving visitors to the town the feeling of stepping into a watercolour painting.Corfu has rightfully earner the title of the music capital of Greece because of its hundreds of music associations and dozens of orchestras, bands, opera music events a tradition dating back to 400 years of Venetian rule of the island.The town is centred on a wide tree-lined esplanade called the Spianada, whose French arcades echo the Rue de Rivoli. A drop of Britishness is to be found on the noble sweep of this square, which is transformed into a cricket pitch throughout the summer – the world’s only working sports field within a UNESCO World Heritage Site.Meanwhile, the Corfiot countryside boasts elegiac greenery, unrivalled across Greece and contrasting remarkably with the solemn barrenness of the Aegean. Bathed in brilliant white sunlight throughout the summer months, the winter rains ensure a sublime frondescenseacross the island, with the inland valleys thickly carpeted with wildflowers, studded with gnarled olive trees and dense groves of stiffly swaying cypresses.The sophisticated north-east is known as Kensington-on- Sea and is the site of the finest real estate in Greece with its epicentre the Rothschild family’s imposing summer villa.It is here that the luxury villa lifestyle comes into its own, with the hillsides sprinkled with secluded, high-end properties boasting private infinity pools and awe-inspiring sea views, with the snowcapped Albanian-Epirote mountains rising mysteriously in the east.
