Villa Petalutha is featured in the May 2015 edition of Woman and Home magazine as one of their favourite places to stay. The villa is located on the outskirts of the traditional mountain village of Spartilas. Nestling beneath the imposing Mount Pantokrator, it offers privacy and seclusion, yet is only 5 minutes drive or 10 minutes scenic walk to the village. The popular resort of Barbati, with beautifully clear water and safe swimming, is 15 minutes drive away. The airport and cosmopolitan Corfu town, a world heritage site, are 40 minutes drive. The area is one of outstanding natural beauty; a peaceful haven for wildlife, including eagles, lizards and butterflies, from which the villa takes its name. Set in its own olive grove and blending superbly with its surroundings, this luxurious villa is built to a high specification. It's unique split level design was inspired by the natural terraces of the hillside and maximises the breathtaking 180 degree views of the beautiful east coast bays, Corfu town, the spectacular mountains of central Corfu and the glorious sunsets of the west coast.

The Ionian Islands region
The Greek islands are renowned for their beauty and facinating culture. Corfu is the nearest island to Britain and is very green. It enjoys hot summers and mild winters. The landscape is varied and dramatic, with spectacular vistas of pebble bays, olive clad hills and turquoise seas.
Spartilas has a bakery, opening every morning for fresh bread, mini market for essentials, a well stocked pharmacy, traditional bar where locals meet, a snack bar and a cafe. It has remained unspoilt by tourism and has a charm of its own. There is an abundance of eating places to discover along the coastline or further inland in the traditional villages, including several excellent tavernas within 10 minutes drive of the villa. For a special evening, take a free boat taxi from Kalami bay and experience the delights of the coastline at night, arriving at any one of the famous and ever popular tavernas of Agni bay. Alternatively, book a boat trip to Corfu town for the evening and soak up the Greek culture with a walk along the Liston followed by a meal. For those who prefer to cook and dine at the villa, we have provided an extensive range of cookware and utensils. There are many large supermarkets along the main coastal road and excellent butchers near Ipsos. There is a very good fish market held daily in Corfu town near the old fort. With its Venetian influence, Corfu town is a fascinating place to visit, especially the old town, filled with tiny alleyways and artisan shops spilling onto the cobbles. The famous Liston is most atmospheric in the cool of the evening, where you can shop for leather goods, local crafts, and jewellery or enjoy a coffee and soak up the culture. There are beautiful churches, often hidden away, and interesting museums and ruins to visit. For water lovers, there are two large water parks on the island, both within 30 minutes drive of the villa. One is in Acharavi on the north coast and the other is inland at Agios Ioannis. If you are interested in horse riding, there are several English speaking stables within reach of the villa. The nearest ATM for cash is along the coast road at Ipsos 7km.

"Heaven on earth"
An absolutely incredible villa in an incredible location. The only problem with it is that the villa's so nice you might not want to ever leave! There were 7 of us, all late 20s/early 30s and we all agreed it was one of the best holidays we've ever been on.
