Aria Hotels acquires Villa Posillipo in Corfu
Aria Hotels group acquired a seaside mansion dating back to the middle of the 18th century and located in the Sotiriotissa Kontokali area of Corfu.
The new resort will be available for booking to guests from 2024 onwards.
Villa Posillipo, that for four consecutive seasons housed the Durrell family in the popular ITV series 'The Durrells', is based in a verdant farm full of centuries-old pines, olive groves and many fruit trees, with sweeping views of the sea, the city of Corfu and the historic islets of Vido and Lazaretto.
Villa Posillipo is of significant architectural interest, as it preserves both Venetian features and elements of French and British architecture in perfect harmony, while it has a highly aesthetic decoration that combines baroque with modern elements.
The Corfu based mansion, also known as "Epaulis Pausilipon", is preserved intact, with remarkable features of Corfu's Ionian architecture, while its interior spaces are decorated with historic furniture and pieces of art, such as the bath of Empress Sissy of Austria-Hungary.
The villa is an ideal accommodation option, suitable for families and groups of friends, as it can accommodate up to 10 people. It consists of a total of five bedrooms, two on the ground floor and three on the first floor, all of which have a private bathroom. A swimming pool, an outdoor dining area with a BBQ and a garden are included in the property's amenities.
Aria Hotels, that has already added three accommodation sites in Kefalonia to their portfolio, continue to enhance their operations in the Ionian islands.
