The view from Villa Ioni reminds us that Corfu is the gateway to the Ionian Pelagos, with all its mythical and historical heroes, an inspiration to artists and writers down the centuries. A narrow road crosses the hillside just below the villa, facilitating access to the beach and rock-bathing of Agni, as well as to its renowned seaside tavernas.
The discerning owners of Villa Ioni wisely decided when drawing up plans for their house that it should complement the stunning setting by being understated in its design and making good use of the local stone. At lower ground floor level there is a swimming pool, chlorinefree, with unique colouring due to its lining of local stone. Set behind the pool is an unusual loggia, which with its fireplace and comfortable sofas has endless possibilities for relaxing outdoors by day or by evening.
Upstairs, the kitchen and living room open on to a covered terrace, while both master bedrooms have private balconies. The northeast coastal road is easily accessed from the villa, bringing a superb choice of bays, beaches, shopping and dining possibilities within easy reach.
