The villa lies just off the country road that winds down to St Stephano, in a quiet area of olive groves and cypress trees, with glorious views over the hillsides and down to the lovely harbour below. Some of northeast Corfus most highly regarded bays and beaches are within easy reach Avlaki, Kerasia and Kassiopi.
There is no lack of activities in the area for those staying at Electra, ranging from dinghy sailing with tuition and windsurfing to horse-riding, but the villa itself is so well-provided with space to relax and admire the heavenly views, not to mention the many facilities for entertainment inside and outside, that it will take a real effort of willpower to actually get up and go out. The bedrooms are very attractive, with predominantly white colour schemes highlighted by bright touches of colour. All are air-conditioned and have sleekly contemporary bathrooms. The living room is lovely, its comfortable sofas and neutral colours dominated by a magnificent stone fireplace. A very practical island-type kitchen area with plenty of workspace complements the chic dining area perfectly.
Outside, it is the big pool that is an irresistible draw, complemented by plenty of really comfortable seating in sun or shade, and surrounded with foot-friendly decking. There is also a very pleasant grassy garden area to one side. An elevated outdoor dining pergola and a well-equipped barbecue area round off the excellent exterior facilities. Above all, it is the views that will demand your attention, by day when ships and yachts glide past the harbour of St Stephano below, or perhaps in the evenings as the sun sets and turns the mainland mountains to purple.
