DescriptionCan you hear the gentle buzzing of the cicadas? Do you feel the soft sea breeze on your skin? Your senses will come alive when you arrive at Atolikos House, one of two luxurious villas on the five acre Kassiopia Estate. Welcome to this idyllic corner of Corfu, where acres of wild scenery, rocky shores and sparkling ocean fill your vision.
Feel yourself drifting away as you relax on one of the gorgeous loungers and see how the fresh water infinity pool stretches out to merge with the blue of the sea. Atolikos House is a bouquet of delicious details and stunning views. Shady corners, fragrant foliage… this is outdoor living at its most refined.
It’s as if this villa was designed to revive your flagging spirits with its light bright interiors, elegant stone fireplace, open plan and exposed beams, all in shades of white. After a few nights of dining under the stars, to the sound of the sea and surrounded by bougainvillea, you won’t want to ever leave this magical place.
Long, sunny days at Atolikos House can be as chilled out or as action packed as you like. From your wrap-around terrace you can amble down to the water’s edge for a spot of snorkelling or fishing. The private jetty (shared with neighbouring Cassiopeia House) is the perfect place to keep a rented boat so you can hop aboard for trips to little harbours and coves.
Whilst you are out enjoying the beautiful island of Corfu, your dedicated housekeeper keeps everything clean and sparkling, and the maintenance staff tend to the garden and pool. Concierge services are also on hand to help you with arrangements. Perhaps you fancy eating out at a wonderful little waterside tavern or perhaps you would like a relaxing massage beside the pool, a horse riding expedition or to join a local art class. It’s up to you.
Atolikos House is a secluded villa in its own grounds, with one neighbouring property, Cassiopeia House which sleeps 14 people. They can be hired jointly for larger parties in this romantic corner of paradise.

EatingAlfresco dining by candle light is one of the highlights of life at Atolikos House. The secluded terrace dining table seats up to eight people, so there is plenty of room for guests. There is also an elegant indoor dining area.
No catering is included in the rental cost of this luxury villa, but there are plenty of optional services available at extra cost. You can ask for the kitchen to be stocked up with fresh ingredients, ready for your arrival, and for all your favourite fine wines, Champagnes and soft drinks too.
The villa has a sleek contemporary kitchen and a barbecue on the terrace, so it’s easy to prepare simple snacks and meals, eating like the locals. Just-caught fish and seafood, freshly-baked bread, fragrant fruit and vegetables can be found at the nearby shops in the little harbour village of Kassiopi.
Your concierge is on hand to recommend the best local restaurants, whether you are after simple, freshly grilled fish, or spectacular gourmet feasts. And if you really want to be spoilt, you can book a local chef or cook to come in and take care of all your meals (service available outside the months of July and August).
ReviewsConde Nast Traveller featured The Kassiopia Estate as one of Europe's best villas - "25 of the best villas in Europe"
KidsWhat a beautiful place for children to enjoy the simple pleasures of a family summer holiday. Atolikos House is perfectly placed beside the sea, with a natural cove and jetty where the kids can go snorkelling and fishing under the watchful eye of parents relaxing on the loungers. The five acres of grounds provide a delightful natural setting where you can spot plenty of butterflies, lizards and crickets.
Little ones will love going out on a rented motor boat for little trips around the coast, making every outing an adventure. It’s so much more fun arriving at a little Greek harbour in your boat than driving in the car. Atolikos House has a beautiful freshwater pool that will keep the kids happy during long lazy days, and a telescope for star-spotting at night.
All the essential modern gadgets such as wi-fi and satellite TV ensure that kids can still enjoy their home comforts, and the concierge is on hand to make all your arrangements. There is so much to do in Corfu, from watersports to horse riding, tennis to skippered tours of the island. The villa also comes equipped with cots, stair gates, a baby intercom, playpen and high chairs, so you don’t need to bring any bulky equipment.
