Villa Icarus is one of four spectacular villas, perched high above the sea on a south coast promontory looking down to the port of Vassiliki. The views across Vassiliki Bay and to the islands of Ithaca and Cephalonia are breathtaking.
There are no other buildings in the vicinity and there is a glorious feeling of peaceful detachment. The villa’s many terraces are akin to comfortable theatre boxes to watch the arriving and departing yachts, fishing boats, small ferries and the occasional school of dolphins.
Ourania, the owner, maintains a high standard of comfort and personal service – a breakfast delivery service is offered (including fresh croissants and pastries); private chef; babysitting; massage and even Mediterranean cooking lessons, can all be arranged with prior notice.
The access track from Vassiliki carries on further up the hillside and then joins an asphalt road, which leads to the beautiful sandy beaches of the west coast.
Private pool 10 x 4 metres & depth 0.80 – 1.6 metres
Maid service and linen change twice weekly.
