The Iris Villas lie almost at the end of the new road leading to the tip of the peninsula, just south of Sivota. Iris Karavi (‘Karavi’ meaning ship in Greek) offers those sort of breathtaking views that many claim but few really can match. 240 degree sea views encompassing the Bay of Sivota, the outer islands, and across the channel beyond Itaka to Kefalonia with the tiny islands of Arkoudi, Atokos, Kalamos and Kastos dotting the perfect horizon.
Sitting on the terrace late afternoon in October was like being on the prow of a large ship drifting through the archipelago towards Kefalonia – simply magical.
This is one of the few villas where you can watch the sunrise and sunset from your terraces, or even whilst floating in the glorious infinity pool or lounging on the extremely comfortable sunbeds.
In addition, a long series of steps and paved pathway lead down to a private stone platform for sunbathing and swimming directly above the azure sea with ladder access (only recommended for competent swimmers). The pathway does offer a lockable gate so that access for children can be regulated and there is a handy outdoor shower so you can rinse off on the way back up.
The main villa is all on the upper (pool) level – a light-filled, home from home with all rooms leading out to the various terraces and balconies around the house. Three bedrooms and three bathrooms with a comfortable living/dining room and open plan kitchen, where floor to ceiling glass doors lead onto the sea-facing terraces and the wonderful view is always there to be enjoyed.
Outside, there is a brick built barbecue and al fresco dining on the main terrace overlooking the pool.Read more...

Just arrived at La Taulera, sure I must have died and gone to heaven. This place is bliss, wish I had booked 6 months and not just one, this wonderful.
Thanks for all your help helping me to decide on our villa holiday again this year – Nick and Cathy offer wonderful advice and always very efficient – even returning calls during the evening and on a Sunday too! Thanks again guys
This is our fourth time we have used Nick to book our villa holiday – he makes excellent suggestions and with honesty as well – even taverna suggestions! So looking forward to the holiday in August.
Nick was a joy to deal with -all emails responded to super fast – expert knowledge of all of the villas as well – expert advice.
Being able to make 1 phone call and receive bespoke holidays quotes within an hour is the reason I keep coming back to you – Thanks for all your help.
I wanted a way to incentivise my staff and Perfect Blue Villas curated an amazing trip that did just that, not only did it boost morale, we had an awesome time abroad!
