It is a unique property which offers the best of all worlds. It is a traditional Corfiot house, built of local stone from the plot on which the villa stands, yet it enjoys all the conveniences of modern living.The extensive grounds combine the best of the Mediterranean & English traditions. It is a building which is timeless and at one with its landscape.
It features a huge open plan vaulted sitting room which leads out onto a wonderful part covered terrace which spans the whole length of the house. Wide steps lead down from this terrace to the pool area. There is a child gate at the top of these steps and access to the pool terrace is only through lockable safety gates.
The English owner is a keen cook and the kitchen is exceptionally well equiped as a result.
One of the many great strengths of this property is that it has so much to offer a wide range of visitors.

The Ionian Islands region
The island of Corfu is the most northerly of the Ionian Islands which lie just off the West coast of Greece. It is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful of all the Greek Islands, owing in part to the 2 million olive trees which were planted by the Venetians during their long rule of the Island. The mild Mediterranean climate has also shaped the beguiling landscape of profuse wildflowers in spring and autumn, classical cypress trees and, of course, the ubiquitous olive.
The Island's main Town is now a World Heritage site. It was largely built by the ruling Venetians in the 16th century and embellished by the French in the 19th century. The English legacy includes a cricket pitch, where occasional matches are still played.
