Photos and Description of this Kassopei holiday villa

Lemon Tree House - 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms. Near Agios Stefanos

Secluded, at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac and with only a few neighbouring villas, Lemon Tree House is perfect for those seeking tranquillity. Situated high on the hillside above Kerasia beach it has, dare we say it, almost unrivalled views. The panorama takes in the shores of Albania & mainland Greece and in the foreground gentle slopes of olive grove culminate in the crystal Mediterranean. The infinity pool is perfectly positioned to take advantage of this beautiful vista. Rattan sofas and a stone built seating area with 'chunky' wooden table, combined with Lemon Tree's wide, covered balcony at first floor level, provide ample alfresco opportunities. Our own little olive grove stretches down the slope to the fore and the garden abounds with lemon, orange and fig trees. Ideally located close to the exclusive bays of Agios Stefanos and Kerasia (a 12 minute drive) and a few minutes walk to Yiannis' wonderful local store.

About Tess Monk

Having first visited Corfu in the 1970's the island retained its hold and has drawn us back as a family many times over the last few years. Dave and I have now realised our dream of owning a property here, in a more beautiful location than we could ever have imagined. We do feel it's a privilege to own this 'Corfiot' house in such an idyllic part of Corfu.

As the years progress we hope to spend more and more time at Lemon Tree but currently work and teenagers prevent this - so please do enjoy our holiday home as your own!

A truly beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

The house has a perfect mix of simple Greek charm and tasteful modern design. There are are surely few places with such stunning views, either when lazing by the infinity pool or relaxing on the veranda.

The house is within easy reach of local amenities but lovely and peaceful. Beaches, bars and restaurants are all within a short drive. We enjoyed hiring a boat from the local village to explore the beautiful coastline. We will definitely hope to come back next year!

Wow, what a view!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed a marvellously relaxing holiday staying at this beautiful villa. The overall experience was great from start to finish. Tess has made finding the villa from the airport a breeze with detailed and well thought out instructions, despite the roads being narrow, windy and steep at times! The villa itself is very well catered for with all the mod cons and little necessities required to make our stay enjoyable. We were welcomed with some essentials such as bread, milk, coffee - wine! As the title of my review surmises, the views from this villa are outstanding, and even on bad weather days there is something changing to watch. The nearby coastal villages are charming and you can walk to 2 bays from the villa (wear mosquito repellent though!). The local shop really does stock everything and stays open quite late into the evening. Overall, I'd recommend Lemon Tree House to anyone and we will certainly visit again.

Absolutely amazing views down to the bay and across to Albania. Perfectly located to explore the surrounding area and within a short walk of a well stocked supermarket. The house was stylish, contemporary and had everything needed to make us feel very comfortable and cool. We were able to eat outside every night on the terrace and enjoyed looking at the yachts moored in the bay in the moonlight. Surrounded by lovely fruit trees, we were even able to make our own lemonade. Would absolutely recommend and we hope to visit again soon. Beautiful!

We had such a wonderful sunny holiday in Corfu! Lemon Tree Villa exceeded our expectations, modern in design and elegantly decorated it was a great base for exploring the island sights or dining ‘al fresco’ by the fabulous Infinity pool (superb views!). The Villa is in a private location but still close to a well stocked shop. Surrounded by olive groves, fig and orange and of course lemon trees! It is a short drive to the lovely Agios Stephanos from where you can hire boats to explore the local coastline or catch the morning boat taxi to explore the old city of Corfu. Agios Stephanos also has a number of fantastic taverna to try out. The Villa was very well equipped and we found everything we needed for a family of six adults for our 11 night stay in late June. Tess, the owner, was fantastic to deal with, professional and friendly! She provided lots of information to make our first villa stay really comfortable, relaxing and memorable.

Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

We spent 7 days here and it wasn't long enough! Didn't want to leave. The pool has amazing views across to the Albanian mountains. The villa is very well equipped, clean and the decor is modern and tasteful. There is so much to do in Corfu the week just flew by. Lots of lovely Tavernas with great food nearby. Kassiopi was one of our favourite places to eat with a lovely harbour and beach. Hoping to return very soon.

Car: recommended

Located in the exclusive North-East of Corfu, Lemon Tree House is only 3kms from the lovely harbourside village of Agios Stefanos. With its waterfront tavernas and jetties set in a horse shoe shaped bay, it's a delightful place to have a leisurely meal or a drink in one of the two cocktail bars. Hiring a boat in Agios Stefanos is highly recommended - the best way to explore the area's beautiful beaches & coves. It is possible to walk to the harbour through the olive grove (down a steep wooded path) which takes approx 40 minutes or it's about 8 minutes in the car.

The nearest beach to Lemon Tree is Kerasia. A 15 minute walk brings you to this lovely white pebbled beach with it's popular taverna (allow at least double the time to come back up though!) or a 12 minute journey by road. Avlaki beach (3 kms) is another delightful bay retaining its tranquillity, yet offering a couple of beachside tavernas.

For those wanting a more lively time Kassiopi with tavernas, bars & gift shops is only a short drive and if time allows, we'd also urge you to journey to Corfu town. It has a unique charm - pastel hued buildings full of character and the Parisien Rue de Rivoli inspired 'Liston' with its colonnades and cafes is a must. Cobbled streets and alleys, St Spiridon's church, fortresses, shops and bars - it's a vibrant cosmopolitan town and we love it! Closer to home and a few minutes walk down the lane will take you to Sinies, our small hamlet which boasts 'Yiannis' a truly excellent small supermarket and a couple of 'locals' bars. We would however highly recommend car hire for accessibility reasons.

It's a 50 minute drive from Corfu airport to Lemon Tree House.
