In another decade it might be Jackie Onassis stepping off the villa’s yacht and heading to her high quarters with floor-to-ceiling pans over the Ionian Sea. For today’s traveler, the villa promises privacy, space and plenty of places to socialize, party with friends or be alone with only the moon and the breeze.
As guests enter by yacht or come in through the Corfu International airport only minutes away on this island, they immediately experience the stunning minimalist surroundings of Ultima Corfu against the limestone cliffs and clear azure of the strait that separates the Greek mainland from Corfu, around 30 miles away. They will ascend through the levels finding coves and beach and then pools and patios up through the property’s penthouse, the grandest of the seven suites all managed with the upmost security for privacy and seclusion.
Ultima Corfu offers seven palatial bedroom accommodations on several elevations, giving each of the up to 14 guests a sense of space, privacy and quietude. The master bedroom comes with a meandering connected terrace over the water. For all its privacy find plenty of sumptuous and viewful corners to gather. That can be around the 60-foot, multi-level, sea-facing infinity pools and terraces, in the cinema theater, in the expansive living room area, on the private beach or on the 78-foot yacht owned by the Villa for use by its guests. The décor of Ultima Corfu strives for simplicity so brings pale whites as a backdrop for signature Ultima Collection designs and furnishings that always yield as a frame to the spectacular views to be found, accented by floor to ceiling windows.
Amenities here, as with all Ultima Collection properties, are as much an appeal for guests as is the destination. Guests enjoy nightly film entertainment with staff serving after-dinner snacks and treats. They can gather on outdoor terraces for exquisite al fresca dining through du jour meals whipped up by the villa’s dedicated chef – or bring it inside around a grand dining setting. They can manage their yoga and cardio in the well-equipped fitness studio, followed by a delicious Hammam experience with an Ultima Spa massage therapist at the ready to pamper, pummel and plump. Floor-to-ceiling windows abound letting in the natural light and epic sea views. A gourmet kitchen allows for self-catering or the onsite chef to manage masterful meals and they can be served 24/7 by dedicated butler staff. A magnificent living area within this nearly 11,000-square-foot lair includes a fireplace and grand piano as well as a wrap-around terrace. The villa can be booked as a complete and private stay for family and friends, or it can be booked by the suite.
