A luxury villa in Corfu with a private jetty, Villa Icarius is the perfect base for enjoying the spectacular northeastern coastline of this popular Greek island. Charter a day boat and discover the wonderful bays and beaches of this stretch of the coast, mooring at a waterfront taverna for lunch, swimming in the afternoon in crystal clear waters before heading back home, looping a guide rope over the villa’s jetty ready for more adventure.
Villa Icarius is extremely well-equipped, providing plenty to do on terra firma. There’s a 13m swimming pool, a shared tennis court, direct sea access, terraces for dining and relaxation and within just five minutes’ walk is the excellent Avlaki beach with several good restaurants and water sports centre.
For larger groups, Villa Icarius can be booked with neighbouring Villa Penelope as the Odysseus Estate, sleeping up to 16 guests in total (combined rental obligatory in July and August).
Accommodation is divided over two floors. The ground floor level includes the living areas, dining terraces and a large master bedroom with private balcony.
Pool level has a further three bedrooms, which open onto terraces and the pool area. A day bed and sun loungers surround the 13m pool, which can be heated at a supplement, with sea views across Avlaki Bay.
