Villa Atokos is the stuff of dreams. With an astounding 180-degree sea view, access to a private 24m yacht and a fabulous spa, this property offers a magical experience; the sort of memory you’ll conjure years later when you close your eyes and try to recapture a moment of absolute tranquillity.
Approached from the water, Villa Atokos has the look of a waterfall of white and terracotta dwellings cascading down into the Ionian Sea. It is perched right on the cliff face so that when you’re inside, your view is of sea and coastline as far as the eye can see.
That view is best enjoyed from one of the two infinity pools, where you can swim under azure skies that give you the feeling of floating right out to sea. The two-tiered pools are a fabulous spot to relax and enjoy the peace and the lapping of the waves, or to throw a fabulous alfresco party with the best backdrop you could hope for.
There is a real sense of indoor and outdoor merging here. The light, airy living space opens out onto the wraparound terraces with two alfresco lounges and an outdoor dining space, seamlessly merging inside and out.
Exploring further indoors, there’s plenty to keep everyone entertained. There’s an impressive spa, which includes a mosaic-tiled hammam, a fitness suite, massage treatment area and outdoor Jacuzzi. Holistic wellbeing programmes can be arranged during your stay – we thoroughly recommend the sunrise yoga. For those who like their downtime a little more relaxed there’s also a cinema room.
In the evenings take a drink out onto the terraces to watch the stars come out before retreating to air-conditioned bedrooms to listen to the waves lapping as you drift off to sleep. If you don’t sleep like a baby here, we’d be very surprised.
Should you wish to have a mini adventure during your stay, you’re welcome to escape on the villa’s private yacht, the Beach Ultima (at additional cost) for a daytrip or even overnight. Whether you want an exciting escape for a group or a romantic getaway for two, there’s no lovelier way to explore the Corfu coastline. With a captain and chef to take care of everything you need, including gourmet meals, snorkelling trips and excursions out on the Zodiac tender, a mini holiday-within-a-holiday is always a possibility.
