Reina is an ecological farm, situated in Lake Korission on the south-western coast of Corfu Island, which is in the West of Greece. Surrounded by beautiful scenery, peaceful environment and open horizons are a traditional house equipped with modern facilities and a restaurant where we serve food of our organic home-made production. The children and yourselves will become familiar with farming tools of the pre-industrial era and the rural animals. It is possible to sit and observe the lake wildlife, such as wild ducks, silver pelicans and ardeidae, the lake and surrounding area being a protected site of natural heritage (natura 2000). Staying in this traditional residence, and under the delight in the serenity of open horizons and calm environment, you can see olive groves and gardens. The residences follow the lines of old local architecture but they do not lack comfort. Although there is a nice kitchen, where you could prepare your own food, you may prefer the estate's small organic restaurant. In the restaurant you can enjoy all day breakfast at your own time, (fresh eggs of the day, olives, honey, freshly squeezed juices, jams, pies, home baked bread in the wood-oven) delicious local lunch and dinner recipes for which most of the ingredients are produced within our farm, with care in an organic way, with all the respect to the environment and ourselves. If you feel like exploring, you may follow a walking path among flora and fauna that will take you through the one and only Cedar forest in the Mediterranean to the sand dunes of a beautiful "blue flagged" beach where some sea sport activities take place such as wind surfing, wave skating, along with swimming, snorkelling, sunbathing, sand-castle building... you name it. At night, if you do not wish to leave the farm to enjoy nightlife in the livelier parts of Corfu island or have a more cultural evening in Corfu town, you may use the telescope to observe the night sky, and relax by the fire in the winter or sit on the porch in summer, enjoying good home made food and wine. The house is up 2 to 5 people. On the ground level there is a wide sitting area, kitchen, dining area, bathroom (equipped for people with special needs). There is a wooden staircase leading to the first floor. On the first floor there are two comfortable bedrooms, a hall, a bathroom. The (oversized) bed mattresses and pillows are of a latex material, which along with cotton sheets and wool covers ensure comfortable, relaxing and healthy sleep. All our furniture has been hand-picked, it is wooden and hand-made, in perfect harmony with the local environment.From the verandas you may enjoy the view of the lake with the wild ducks, silver pelicans and ardeidae, but also the fishermen at work in their slow patient rate. As a visitor you may simply watch or participate if you would like, in the seasonal farming activities. You may sail around the lagoon on a small boat, reach dream-like beaches surrounded by sand-dunes, explore the unique cedar-tree forest. You will certainly take delight in the open sky and its vastness, the night's melodies and travel to distant planets with our telescope, or at other times let your heart enjoy some good music, dancing and singing. You will taste the fruits of the Corfiot land, produced with our love and care… this is a place where you can enjoy peaceful, comfortable and pleasurable holidays. The farm has a horse-driven olive-press, a hand-mill, a threshing machine, a loom, and many other pre-industrial era tools, most of which are still being used in our seasonal work.
