    Magna Grecia

    Magna Grecia is the epitome of elegance in a gloriously panoramic setting.

    Beautiful grounds, captivating views and verdant green surroundings open onto the sparkling waters of the Mediterranean.

    A tale of two homes, Magna Grecia has a total of 11 exceedingly spacious ensuite bedroom suites. Four bedrooms are in the main house and five in the other. The two properties are joined by an underground pathway. In addition to the main houses, there is also a two-bedroom “gatehouse”.

    Each of the homes has fully fitted kitchens equipped with top of the range Miele professional appliances and in addition to all of this, there is a professional chef’s kitchen, equipped with Electrolux professional catering appliances, for when the occasion calls for entertaining on a grander scale.

    In fact, Magna Grecia was designed for socialising on a grand scale, as well as comfortable family living. Its living spaces are relaxing with serene decor, easy on the eye and well thought out and twenty can comfortably be seated for dinner.

    Unparalleled KNX smart home technology is installed throughout, customised and designed specifically to meet the needs of this very unique property.

    This includes a high-security alarm system, intelligent surveillance system and drone defence system. The property is surrounded by stone walls and oak panels with 2.5m moving sensors.

    Here you and your family can enjoy a host of facilities more often found in the very best of hotels. If you want to relax you can choose to do so in the massage room, steam room, take a sauna or jump in the jacuzzi. For more energetic moments a gym, fully equipped with Precor equipment, will please the most avid fitness enthusiast as will the indoor pool which looks through to the main outdoor pool. The gym has its own changing room, shower room and lounge.

    The world has some fine cognac bars but it must be said that the Magna Grecia cognac bar can match the finest of them, whether that be in London, Paris, Singapore or New York. Here on the Greek island of Corfu, this amazing home can compete on a grand international scale in terms of luxury and professional line equipment.

    The cellar with a lounge bar is an experience to be enjoyed and appreciated like the fine wines it houses.

    The bar is equipped with everything needed to add to the experience. You can feel as if you have gone out for the evening instead of actually staying home, safe and happy in the company of friends and family.

    A sumptuous media room, large enough to seat 15, is another lovely space to head to and watch the latest movies on the state of the art projectors with a 4 x 2m screen and full Dolby Atmos system.

    Other highlights of these wonderful interiors include a library and study making “working from home” less of a chore as well as a “safe” room.

    The clever design continues on outside where there is also space for thirty people to dine in comfort and style as well as a 28m pool situated perfectly for both homes to enjoy. Sunny terrace areas include a large BBQ area and fully equipped kitchen and even a yoga area where you can enjoy the fragrance of the wide range of plants, many of them specially imported.

    As day turns to night Magna Grecia is magical, bathed in the golden glow of the expert fibre optic lighting and the sparkling lights of the surrounding coastline.

    A private 19m four birth jetty with security cameras is secure mooring with on-site water and electricity.

    Magna Grecia has a host of benefits including but not limited to: osmosis water production with a 18m3 daily capacity, a rainwater collection and filtration system used for the garden and 3 underground water tanks with a 600m3 capacity. All windows shatter resistant with in-built sun filters and housed in high-tech aluminium frames with a custom-designed locking system.

    About The Area

    Sitting in the most northwesterly corner of Greece, Corfu is an elegant and cosmopolitan island, wearing the mantle of its colourful Venetian history with style.‘Somewhere between Calabria and Corfu the blue really begins…you are aware of a change in the heart of things: aware of the horizon beginning to stain at the rim of the world: aware of islands coming out of the darkness to meet you’.So begins Lawrence Durrell’s 1945 ode to Corfu, Prospero’s Cell. Even today, visitors to the island often arrive by sea, approaching from Italy in the west, of the Greek mainland in the east.Emerging in the early morning sunshine, the pastel-hued houses above Corfu Town’s old port are a jumble of slim tiers with narrow passages running between them, made brilliant with washing hung out to dry from every balcony like festive bunting. The tall Venetian mansions display ancient coats of coloured paint, blurred by successive winters and giving visitors to the town the feeling of stepping into a watercolour painting.Corfu has rightfully earner the title of the music capital of Greece because of its hundreds of music associations and dozens of orchestras, bands, opera music events a tradition dating back to 400 years of Venetian rule of the island.The town is centred on a wide tree-lined esplanade called the Spianada, whose French arcades echo the Rue de Rivoli. A drop of Britishness is to be found on the noble sweep of this square, which is transformed into a cricket pitch throughout the summer – the world’s only working sports field within a UNESCO World Heritage Site.Meanwhile, the Corfiot countryside boasts elegiac greenery, unrivalled across Greece and contrasting remarkably with the solemn barrenness of the Aegean. Bathed in brilliant white sunlight throughout the summer months, the winter rains ensure a sublime frondescence across the island, with the inland valleys thickly carpeted with wildflowers, studded with gnarled olive trees and dense groves of stiffly swaying cypresses.The sophisticated north-east is known as Kensington-on- Sea and is the site of the finest real estate in Greece with its epicentre the Rothschild family’s imposing summer villa.It is here that the luxury villa lifestyle comes into its own, with the hillsides sprinkled with secluded, high-end properties boasting private infinity pools and awe-inspiring sea views, with the snowcapped Albanian-Epirote mountains rising mysteriously in the east.
