Villa Quietude

Avliotes, Agios Stefanos, 49081, Corfu, CA Greece Show map Greece Phone: Fax:

Villa Quietude Villa Quietude has a very nice architecture, it was built in the 60's with stone originally from Cadbury which reminds you other epoch, place or time with a natural environmental construction of local materials provided. The design, stone work, multitude of stone terraces, pool area, gardens & size, make it the number one destination in St. Stefanos. There are many places where you can sit, hide, relax, read, or only lie down and enjoy the unforgettable view. It offers you everything you need for a relaxing holiday with full privacy. It’s quiet and peaceful, in nature with a big garden and a small greenhouse with bio vegetables. It’s got a private swimming pool, sea view and the garden extends as near is possible to a secluded beach down the house. With a 5 minutes’ walk you can find yourself in the main beach of St. Stefanos, in the centre with shops, restaurants, bars, but also 300 meters to the west is the harbour of St. Stefanos with its small and pretty fishermen boats and scheduled boat services to the close, inhabited islands of Erikousa, Othoni & Mathraki.

There is a big living room with sofas, TV, dining room with an old long wooden table for aprox 12 people, a kitchen separated and fully equipped, an office with Pc, a projector and a small gym room. On the other site of the ground floor, just 4 steps up from the living room there is a corridor taking us to the bedrooms and bathrooms. Tranquillity, comfort, space & location are the keywords. Sitting on the veranda, overlooking the sea 100 meters away, and watching the red sun disappearing behind Othoni Island is truly something magical provided free by nature in a few places on earth.

People and Agency's quote “position, position, position”, well this is truly a superb example.  Check it's amazing position on the peninsular. From the writers knowledge, having lived in Corfu for 30  years or more, Villa Quietude is a one off, from it's standing, to the general wants of a family. One could ask where in Corfu are there others similar. I know of none. Overlooking the sea, on a high mountain. & a far distance away from the sea, yes, but not situated next to the sea. This estate with it's matured gardens & large swimming pool has been stayed in by many iconic household names. It is the closest house to the port in a now prohibited building area. Where else can you can walk from your own terraced gardens to the sea, and not need to rent a car to get to facilities. This Villa is only offered as the owners do not use it throughout the summer months, but also have no desire what-so-ever to sell such a unique property as it can never be replaced. It is listed as the dominant property in the now holiday resort. 

Villa Quietude was built in the 60's with a natural environmental construction of local materials provided. The design, stone work, multitude of stone terraces, pool area, gardens & size, make it photographed by most passers-bye. It's west border is designated forest land with all building and vegetation alteration against the law. The gardens extend down as near as possible to the sea and the secluded fine pebble beach.  The fisherman’s Port is 300M away to the west, where there are scheduled boat services to the close, inhabited islands of Erikousa, Othoni & Matraki. Behind the Villa is the ridge leading down to Arillas beach. Tranquillity, comfort, space & location are the keywords. Sitting on the veranda, overlooking the sea 100 meters away, and watching the red sun disappearing behind Orthoni Island is truly something magical provided free by nature in a few places on earth. Swim below or at the long sandy golden beach of Ayios Stefanos. 

The Villa’s 1.5 managed acres go down to the sea where one can stroll and have a swim or use its large 55 sq. yd. pool. Shelter away from sun at the pool, under a large fruit bearing fig tree or umbrellas. Lounges, umbrellas & solid table are provided in order for you to enjoy your midday salad, evening meal or cocktails outdoors. There is a purpose built BBQ. Lighting is provided around the pool and underwater if required. 

Originally built by the Cadbury family, it has over the years been substantially enlarged and has lately had a renovation which brings it right up-to date. 

Electronically, the Villa has a home cinema, DVD, CD, broadband 24/7 connections, & both Greek & UK sockets. Besides wifi it has wired internet connection in each bedroom and major rooms. Silent fans are in all the bedrooms & lounge, but with 22 inch cavity stone walls the A/C is rarely used or needed as the Villa is naturally cool even in the hottest weather. The new modern oak kitchen has all the equipment one would wish, if you cook-in, which seems a rarity. 

Even though being completely secluded and reflecting its name, Quietude is well within easy walking distance of all the village facilities and a car is not required. These facilities include news agent, supermarkets, shops, bars and approximately 30 restaurants/places to eat. 

Quietude has at least 6 large sitting out areas, front veranda partly covered, rear grape vine patio, a few other sun patios scattered around. 7 different terraced lawns so it is possible to enjoy the outdoors with every type of weather or wind direction. 

For your personal security 24/7 CCTV cameras operate non-invasive & border facing areas. 

Within the gardens is a Kalamata olive grove, and vegetable patches where clients can pick vegetables when they are in season. In keeping with ecological trends a biodigester waste water treatment plant has been installed and is being kept in reserve until and if ever required. Water is provided by a deep borehole. As opposed to some of the Greek Houses & toilet systems which require the waste paper be thrown into a dust bin, Villa Quietude has a modern toilet system, not requiring these un-hygenic methods. Keep-up with the TV, political personalities & film makers who have stayed here. 

 

Whatever your desire, a wedding, a holiday, or a romantic getaway this luxury Villa will be your dream. My daughter is even coming to christen her child. Even though advertised for 6 persons the Villa has in reality has got 8 beds. A cot can be provided free if required. Unbelievable “yes”, but TRUE.
