Overview

Located on the fabled North East coast of Corfu, this beautiful, privately owned 5 acre private estate with spectacular views and beautifully landscaped grounds surrounded by sea and sky, provides the perfect setting for a truly unforgettable experience. Designed and built by a Norman Foster trained architect and built to the highest specifications, it combines a strong Venetian influence complementing traditional Corfiot features with the ultimate in contemporary comfort. Helios I offers privacy, luxurious accommodation and stunning pool areas with much sought after sea access. A network of pathways weaves its way through the estate’s beautiful indigenous flora and woodland to a jetty (shared with Helios II), a small pebble beach where guests can swim from sun drenched rocks. Cobalt blue seas and the dramatic Albanian mountains provide a sublime backdrop for the Estate. A fabulous home and a place where one can completely relax or host a celebration or a gathering of friends & family. A truly idyllic hideaway offers guests complete peace and tranquility enjoying a breathtaking position and stunning views, yet is only a short walk from the village and harbor of Kassiopi.

The first sight, from the crest of the hill, of the seven bedroom house is truly breathtaking. The sapphire colored sea and theatrical & dramatic Albanian mountains provide the perfect backdrop. Entered through a traditional Corfiot door into a magical courtyard with two 400 hundred year old olive trees, scented lavender, two stone water features and trickling water from an enormous clam shell set the scene and soothe even the weariest of traveler’s soul.

Helios I & II can be rented together for 10 bedrooms.
