Villa Erato – Corfu, Greece
Erato is a simply stunning villa, with sprawling terraces making the most of the magnificent view across the bay and peninsula. Designed and built with entertaining in mind, there’s an array of places for al fresco eating, covered pergolas, quiet courtyards and balconies. The gardens are brimming with Mediterranean shrubs and flowers, olive and cyprus trees. The stepped infinity pool is the centrepiece, and there’s no better place to soak up your idyllic surroundings.
The water is just below, reached by a winding path, and where you’ll find a jetty for arriving by boat. And steps away is a tranquil, sandy beach. Stylish and contemporary, Erato has everything you need for a villa holiday – large open-plan living spaces and airy bedrooms. The Master bedroom is on the upper level, and features a courtyard bath and rainforest shower along with its en suite bathroom. The further four bedrooms are on the lower level – all of which have fabulous views.
