The Villa

Summary

From your hilltop retreat at Villa Octavius, look out onto a stunning landscape. Fragrant lemon orchards and olive groves lie below; turquoise sea, islands and mountains shimmer beyond; a cooling breeze bears scents of jasmine and thyme, stirring the sweet-smelling pine trees on the mountains above. At night, the velvet-black sky is a carpet of stars.

Exquisitely designed and craftsman-built to a world-class standard, Villa Octavius is inspired by Emperor Octavian, who defeated Anthony and Cleopatra in the Battle of Actium in 31 BC at nearby Preveza. To reflect Octavian's dominions, renowned interior designer Miranda Holland-Cooper has decorated the villa with rare fabrics, treasures and antiques from Britain, Europe, Egypt, India and China.

The grounds of Villa Octavius have been designed to maximise your enjoyment of these outdoor spaces and appreciate the fantastic climate. The spacious patio with built-in barbecue adjacent to the large pool is a great place to have a party and the shaded outdoor dining area provides the perfect setting for al fresco dining. The stunningly landscaped terraces and gardens offer a variety of delightfully secluded areas in which to relax in blissful serenity. The Jacuzzi garden, two sides of which give you views of the dramatic high mountains to the west over an olive grove valley, is best enjoyed at night as the night sky and stars are simply stunning! Night time is also when many of the plants in the garden release tantalising scents. Guests will also love the fire-table during the cooler nights of low season.

If you are looking for a luxury home, the real Greece, peace and tranquility but close enough to the hustle and bustle of a busy town and tourist destination, Villa Octavius is the ideal holiday retreat.
