The views are sublime, the house is gorgeous, the infinity pool spills out into the view beyond and the beach is minutes away; welcome to Acacia. This elegant and much-loved three bedroom house sleeps up to 6 adults and is one of the handful of beautifully designed villas on the Kardaki Estate, a forty- acre sea of olive trees in North-East Corfu. The house has an en suite double bedroom either side of the light, airy living space with a self-contained suite below the house that can comfortably sleep 2 adults plus a child on the room’s day-bed. The house is designed to merge inside and out with delicate cool pink fabrics and contemporary finishes creating beautiful contrasts with the solid age old rocks that make-up parts of the landscaped gardens. Wide terraces designed for maximum outside living encircle the house and the infinity pool creates a glorious focal point for the view beyond. For larger groups, it is possible to rent Acacia’s sister property, Kalamaki Bay House, which sleeps up to 10 guests and is linked to Acacia through the garden via a path and gate.
