Specialist operator Ionian Villas still has some late summer availability for those who have yet to book a holiday.

Booking a villa over the Internet can be extremely risky – looks can deceive and sometimes the properties don’t even exist!

However UK-based Ionian Villas, which offers a wide choice of villas on the islands of Paxos, AntiPaxos, Ithaca, Kefalonia, Meganissi, Lefkas and Corfu, has sourced the very best villas on each and knows every property owner personally.

Corfu: Villa Cecilia is a beautiful four-bedroomed house set on a hillside above the long sandy beach of Pelekas on Corfu’s west coast. The villa’s owners are interior designers and no expense has been spared on furnishing. The property has magnificent views down a hillside of olive groves to the bay and the extensive grounds offer total privacy. A covered dining terrace runs the length of the villa which also has a large swimming pool. Available from 2 September, a week’s stay is £2405 or £300 pp when fully occupied (15% discount for stays of 7days or more).

Anti-Paxos: Villa Morpheus is one of only four properties available to let on the tiny island of Anti-Paxos – and it is easily the plushest! The two-bedroomed villa was painstakingly built and furnished over two years by two brothers (all materials had to be brought over from sister island Paxos) and now Yannia and Panagiotis can focus on their main job which is running a little taverna just above the sandy beach of Voutoumi. The brothers can also arrange boat hire for guests wishing to explore the coast. The villa is available for a week from 2 September and costs £1670 or £418 pp when fully occupied.

Lefkas: Villa Rhoda is a one-bedroomed property which is perfect for a romantic escape. It is located 10-minutes’ drive from the sandy beaches of the west coast in the farming village of Tsoukoulades. The sleepy village has several tavernas, a cafenion and a supermarket. Villa Rhoda is 700 metres away from the village and looks out across the sea to the island of AntiPaxos and the mountains of the mainland beyond. The villa also has a private swimming pool – ideal for skinny dipping! The villa is available for a week’s rental from 1 September and costs £780 or £390 pp.
