Kommeno Castle Luxury Villa
from £224 /night help
Villa | 6 bedrooms | sleeps 12
Welcome to Kommeno Luxury Villa Castle and to Corfu Island's enchanting Kommeno Peninsula. If it is uniqueness and exclusivity that make a place desirable and sought after then Kommeno Luxury Villa Castle is such a place. Nature itself dictates that there are but a few front row seats to witness locations of outstanding beauty from and that these need be reserved well in advance.
Kommeno Luxury Villa Castle offers a front row seat that looks onto one of the largest natural marine enclosures in Greece. It offers breathtaking views of this remarkable area of natural wonder and the fact that it is only 12km form Corfu Town makes staying here a privileged experience.
Kommeno Luxury Villa Castle is a private haven of luxury and comfort that has been built to a high standard of aesthetic beauty. It covers a total surface area of 410 square meters on three levels and is located within a larger complex of residences that offer guarded security for an international clientele of property owners.
As you enter the villa's private grounds one is struck by the care with which the gardens are kept. Mature trees, full bodied lawns and carefully landscaped flower beds create a feeling of peace and tranquility that promise the same attention to detail and care for Kommeno Luxury Villa Castle itself.
The villa itself is no more than ten years old and has been built to the highest standards of quality and aesthetic pleasure as demanded by the charismatic personality of its owner. Whilst reminiscent of traditional Corfiot country residences it is also distinctly modern and despite the large size of the house the feeling is discreet rather than grand.
A well calculated use of space both inside and out has Kommeno Luxury Villa Castle nestled comfortably within its garden grounds. Upon entering the villa at ground level one is met by large open living areas that take full advantage of the villa's location and views. Large windows create a movie screen effect with leather sofas and double sized armchairs to watch the film on.
The living and dining room areas are open plan with large wooden furniture that allow for family dining and comfortable living. A fireplace, modern technological conveniences, an office that can also be used as an indoor child play area all contribute to the cozy feeling of a home away from home. The ground floor kitchen has been fitted with walnut wood drawers and cabinets that make it a luxurious space to prepare your meals in or have a professional cook do it for you. A WC walled with breathtaking semi-precious Brazilian marbles demonstrates the owner's genuine care for beauty and meticulous attention for quality and detail.
A wide internal staircase made of natural light colored American oak wood connects all three floors. Nearly all bedrooms are to be found on the first floor all of which are extended by very large verandas with unobstructed view towards the sea, the town of Corfu and the yacht marina in Gouvia.
Here too one is struck by a genuine love for comfort and luxury. The master bedroom is accompanied by an impressive full-room-size walk-in-wardrobe made of a natural wood surface. The master bedroom bathroom on the other hand is made of 'Portogalo' marble and includes a Jacuzzi and sauna amongst its comforts.
On the first floor of Kommeno Luxury Villa Castle are another two en-suite bedrooms with their own distinct color motifs and high finish. A smaller sitting room than the one bellow, a utility size kitchen and an external staircase give the first floor independent access and functionality.
The garden and pool level of Kommeno Luxury Villa Castle also has independent access. Here are the service rooms for the entire villa yet a further three bedrooms make this level of 170 square meters an ample spaced home.
A gym, a sauna and a wine cellar add further value to the comforts offered by this unique villa. An office space, a laundry room, a utility kitchen and two large storage spaces also give Kommeno Luxury Villa Castle the possibility of being used as a professional business retreat.
From this level one has immediate view and access to the magnificent garden grounds and unusually shaped swimming pool that are all meticulously kept and serviced. The privacy and tranquility one experiences here make Kommeno Luxury Villa Castle a sought after holiday experience by those who seek the best in life.

The Ionian Islands region
Even though Kommeno peninsula is an ideal holiday location because in many ways it summarizes the unique beauty of Corfu Island, it cannot reveal the incredible diversity that characterizes this western Greek isle.
The seductive South offers an endless stretch of golden sand beaches whilst the North- Eastern coast offers picturesque coves and shingle beaches best visited by boat. The North West in turn stands high on mythic cliffs that look out over the Mediterranean Sea whilst central mountain highs suggest distant moonscapes. Corfu Island has it all which is why so many visitors, mesmerized by its energy and beauty, come back time and time again.
Situated geographically as a portal through which one travels from east to west and vice versa, Corfu Island became a crucible of cultures. Many have sought to conquer whilst others have been content with simply living here and enjoying the island's mythic beauty. Even the shape of the island itself is open to interpretations of divine imagery. In antiquity it was renowned as the only earthly place where the Gods came down to make merry. Music, Art, Theatre, Healing and Relaxation as well as contemporary sport, fun and entertainment make Corfu Island the Cosmopolitan Emerald Jewel of the Mediterranean.
There are many ways to experience a bit of the island during your stay. Cycling, Horse Riding and organised Hiking Tours, for groups as well as private excursions, are an attractive and popular way to feel and see parts of the island that you wouldn't in conventional ways.
Meditating or practicing Yoga outdoors are an accepted and widely practiced form of vacation on Corfu island. Capturing your favourite sunset or paradise beach through a camera lens can also be a highly rewarding experience. Why not join a professional Photo-shoot? Whether as a beginner or an experienced aficionado you are bound to unforgettable moments.
Should relaxation and comfort be your theme for this holiday, ask the concierge at Kommeno Luxury Villa Castle for a list of massage and beauty treatments given at the comfort of your own home. A professional cook can also be asked to provide for all your culinary requirements during your stay or to prepare for a private celebration.
Adding to the value of Kommeno Luxury Villa Castle is its location. Luxury Villa Castle is nestled within 2000 square metres of prime property in Kommeno, considered one of Corfu's elite residential areas. Kommeno penisnusla is an oasis of tranquillity and natural beauty with a single one-way road circling the entire district. Several of Corfu's luxury hotels and exclusive complexes are to be found here and being only 12km from Corfu Town many wealthy Greeks have their holiday residences here too.
Kommeno peninsula is distinct in the way it has maintained a sense of privacy and respect for the rich natural beauty that characterizes the entire area. Luscious flower gardens and thick forest greens are set against the intensely blue Ionian Sea. To reach Kommeno one drives along one of the largest natural water enclosures in Greece with a postcard view of a small church that looks as if it is floating on water. Unimaginably beautiful the place is used for private wedding ceremonies and christenings with the setting sun in the background adding to the dreamland effect.
Gouvia Bay forms a natural harbour which houses today' s modern marina as well as a 17th century Venetian shipyard part of which still remains today. This large natural sea enclosure continues to provide an ideal protected location for harbouring the many private yachts that moor here during the summer. Gouvia Marina is a modern and steadily growing enterprise providing many services and facilities for its guests. Here you can rent a boat for the day or hire a private skipper so you can experience the magic of the Ionian Sea at ease. Sailing upon the crystal blue waters and discovering secluded mermaid coves is certainly top of the to do list. Only 5km form Luxury Villa Castle Gouvia Marina is also a pleasant visit for breakfast or dinner amongst an international jet set of guests.
