Kaparelli House is an outstanding example of the contemporary Corfiot house – its light and airy interior is perfectly complemented by the spacious outdoor living areas, and the large windows that cover entire walls frame views of the utmost beauty and serenity. As far as the eye can see, are the headlands of northeast Corfu, separated from the coast of Albania by a stretch of shining sea. The tiny islet of Kaparelli, for which the house is named, forms the focal point of this breathtaking view.
Kaparelli House is the family home of a young British architect and his family. Built to their own design, it is a reflection of their modern family attitudes. A large, uncluttered kitchen opens on to an awning-shaded terrace where the breathtaking view is the perfect accompaniment to romantic outdoor meals. A TV room allows for sprawling on the sofa in front of some unmissable programme beamed down by Sky satellite, and a separate children’s play room opens off this. The exquistitely furnished main drawing room, opens onto a large, part covered terrace with drinks fridge and sound system to help wile away the hours.
The sense of romance continues upstairs in the Master double bedroom suite, with its subtle colour scheme, open Corfiot fire place and private covered balcony equipped with an outdoor Jacuzzi bath. The view from this bath is breath taking. What a way to end the day, bathing by candlelight with just the owls for company! The adjoining office suite, is fully equipped and also contains the house book library. Situated on the lower ground floor is a private gym and spa room.
A full concierge service is provided by the Kaparelli House Manager, to generally assist in making your stay comfortable. The housekeeper and cook live unobtrusively in the Kaparelli Estate grounds and look after the running of the house. The dazzling beach of Avlaki, one of the best beaches on this coast, is 1km away down an unmade country road. It will not be easy, however, to tear yourself away from the house with its fantastic swimming pool where it is easy to imagine yourself blissfully suspended between sea and sky.
