Description from owner

Description

You are very welcome in a house which counts more than two centuries! It was built in early 19th century to house a French officer while Corfu was under Napoleon's command. Right after Waterloo, the house was lived by a British officer. Around 1850 it was bought by our family to whom it belongs until today. The house is a typical sample of the architecture of what in Corfu was known under the French word “mas”. A village house, owned by wealthy families having –mainly- olive yards, in order to survey the agricultural works, was a must. When our ancestors bought this house, they added the olive press and the stable so to make it suitable for this purpose. The olive press was in full function until 1960!Recently, the olive press and the stable were restored and altered into apartments decorated with the original antique furniture, ready to host our friends or anyone who would like to visit this beautiful house! The olive press has been transformed into a loft, with two bedrooms, separated

The olive press was in full function until 1960!Recently, the olive press and the stable were restored and altered into apartments decorated with the original antique furniture, ready to host our friends or anyone who would like to visit this beautiful house! The olive press has been transformed into a loft, with two bedrooms, separated with curtains from the rest of the space, a living-room, a kitchen and a bathroom. The house can accommodate 5 persons, in one double bed, and three single beds.We have tried to preserve the unique atmosphere of the old olive press, so inside the house you will find some old equipment, such as the mill and the press.Apart from the olive press, the stable has also been renovated into a 4-persons apartment. Together the olive press and the stable can host up to 9 persons, ideal for a big family or a big company. You can refer to the listing titled "Country Estate in Doukades, Corfu (the stable)".We may daily provide you, at an extra cost, with fresh cow's milk, eggs, greenery etc. We hope you find it interesting and we wish you a very pleasant sojourn! The owners,Sofia and Alda Varthi
