Villa Ataraxia, a beautifully crafted stone-clad villa with commanding sea views and a panoramic pool overlooking bewitching Avlaki Bay and Kassiopi Town. In Greek, ataraxia describes a state of serene calmness. As soon as you step over the threshold of this delightful villa you will understand what inspired the owner’s choice of name.
Wide-open vistas spread out before you, down over the olive tree-carpeted hills to the coast below, and both the interiors and the ample terraced exteriors are imbued with an atmosphere of pure tranquility. accommodation at Ataraxia is spread over two floors.
The main entrance takes one into first floor and a voluminous living room, whose white walls, lofty wood-beamed ceilings and views out to sea set a blueprint for the rest of the house. Opulent dark blue sofas and armchairs wrap around an ornamental fireplace and four sets of French windows provide seamless access to the panoramic terraces.
Villa Ataraxia maximises its stunning views with a series of connecting terraces. All the bedrooms and the living room open out onto multi-level terraces that flow along the entire facade of the villa. Steps link the various levels, and each different section is furnished for sitting, lounging and taking in the vistas over Avlaki Bay, Kassiopi, the sea and, across the Channel of Corfu, Albania.
At one end, accessed from the kitchen and the living room, is a delightful shaded outdoor dining area, where you will no doubt take many of your meals. Just around the corner from this is yet another al fresco living area, which is also accessed from the kitchen. A few steps lead down from here to the gorgeous pool area where, apart from the irresistible infinity pool, is a shower/changing room and WC, and a well-equipped outdoor kitchen with built-in barbecue, wood oven, sink, preparation area, fridge and dining table – all you could possibly need for long convivial dinners under the stars.
