The estate consists of three properties: the main property of approximately 620 sq.m in a plot of 7113 sq.m., a villa of 187 sq.m. in a plot of 2735 sq.m. and a villa of 68 sq.m. in a plot of 1984 sq.m.

Anassa is located just off the main road to Agni Bay and has been built with local stone, maintaining the traditional character of the area. Set in a plot of sloped terrain, the previous owners have carried out extensive landscaping including stone walls around the boundaries of the estate.
Double gates open up onto a tarmac driveway which leads to a large garage. A passageway leads to an elevator, which leads to the main entrance of the villa and its guesthouse.

Part of the terrace is carved into the rock, providing natural protection for the shaded lounge/ dining area. The decked terrace leads to a free-form infinity pool with spectacular sea views. The terrace leads down to a small private cove the ideal spot to relax and enjoy the crystal clear waters.
The stone-built villa of 187 sq.m. with four bedrooms sits also overlooking the azure bay and boasts a truly select location for relaxed living with luxurious amenities.

Just a short walk away from the picturesque Agni Bay, there could be no better way to experience an authentic Corfiot lifestyle than by taking up residence in the mesmerising Anassa!
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 runningbetween 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.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 an 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 frondescence across the island, with the inland valleys thickly carpeted with wild flowers, 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 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.
