From the terraces of Villas Herm and Aphrodite it is possible to see both sunrise and sunset, for its setting on the hill slopes below the village of Spartilla gives it the benefit of a wide panoramic view over the bays and headlands of Corfu.
This beautiful villa, comprising two houses, has just been renovated to an extremely high standard. Villas Herm and Aphrodite was one of the very first houses to be included in the original ‘Corfu Villas’ programme and having undergone a radical face-lift over the past year, a dazzling house has emerged like a butterfly from a chrysalis.
The architectural originality remains, enhanced now by beautiful modern furnishings brought from the US and Morocco. Big couches made from natural fibres, exquisite lamps, rugs and kilims in softly faded colours – an expert’s touch is evident throughout. Modern four-poster beds and extra wide twin beds are covered with the generously sized and deeply comfortable bedding we associate with the United States.
The outdoor areas are furnished with super-size sunbeds, shaded sitting areas, even a huge hammock. The old olive trees have been tamed and provide shade for the paved garden that leads down in terraces to the delightful swimming pool. Villas Herm and Aphrodite are private and combine contemporary comfort with effortless elegance and sophisticated interiors. The house lies ideally between mountain and sea, close to such amenities as the prestigious Corfu Golf Club and a twenty minute drive from the shopping and restaurants of Corfu Town.
Herm and Aphrodite is particularly suitable for families, with easy access to water sports activities and evening entertainment to suit all ages. The house occupies two levels, each sleep s 5 people, is fully furnished and equipped as a separate villas, and with their own front doors. A Cook Service is available on request, at an additional cost.
