A wonderful example of a contemporary villa in Corfu that successfully combines the traditional materials of Greek houses – stone, wood and marble – with the exotic textures and rich colours of India and Morocco. Cool breezes blow through this spectacular house with the view that inspired its name – a view towards the rising sun each day. Secluded, with few near neighbours, this is a very private villa and stands on its own amidst olive groves, overlooking a 180 ̊ panorama of the deep blue sea and the mountains of Albania.
Below lie the bays of Avlaki and Coyevinas. This is a very elegant house, spacious and stylish, its large windows opening on to a broad terrace that is equipped with hugely comfortable seating and generously sized dining tables. A charming cottage with additional accommodation is perched above the main house with a spectacular view. The horizon swimming pool is situated beneath and close to the house, exquisitely designed to reflect sky and trees and framed by a mosaic of pebble paving.
