As a young girl, she came to live at the Achillion Palace with her parents, who were part of the entourage of the empress. Her father was the captain of her yacht and her mother was in charge of the palace and all the servants. She married and her children grew up running and playing in the palace gardens. They continued to live there during the Kaiser’s occupation of the Achillion until the beginning of WW2, when they left to live in Alexandria. In 1960 her son and grand- son returned to Corfu and built this villa, where she spent her final years, enjoying the tranquility and remembering times gone by.
Villa Aurora has been in the same family for four generations. The Villa is set on the hillside road leading up to the Achilleion Palace, a pleasant afternoon walk of half an hour, where tavernas and coffee bars can also be found. The view from the veranda stretches across the bay, with the fishing village of Benitses and its marina clearly visible. The beach is a downhill stroll of a few minutes, where you will also find a small supermarket, mainline bus stop to Corfu Town, as well as to the South of the island.
As previously mentioned, the house has just been completely renovated to a very high standard, boasting amongst other things; Central air conditioning in all rooms, swimming pool with hydro-massage and a small gym with a massage table. An eco-friendly philosophy has been adopted, which includes all beds and bedding being provided by Coco Mat, an internationally known company that uses only natural materials in its products. A good nights sleep is guaranteed!
