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 stable has been transformed to accommodate

The stable has been transformed to accommodate 4 persons, two in the bedroom with one double bed, and two in the living room with a double sofa-bed.

Apart from the stable, the olive press has also been renovated into a 5-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 "Estate in Doukades, Corfu (olive press)".


We hope you find it interesting and we wish you a very pleasant sojourn!

“Superb stay”

Reviewed 11 Aug 2015

We had an excellent stay in the country estate in Doukades. Alda (the owner) gave us a very good description how to find the estate with our rental car from the airport. When we arrived, Bernadette (who takes care of the house) was there and gave us a very good introduction. She was very nice, helpful and always there when we needed something. She gave us also very good tipps where to find local festivals and nice beaches. The house was very clean when we arrived and was perfect for 2 people. The only downside is that there was no air conditioning installed and during our stay it was very hot outside (about 39 degrees). So it was also a little bit hot inside. We got a fan which helped during the night. All in all I can say that the house and the people who take care are very nice, helpful and friendly. In Doukades you can find 3 Restaurants and a nice little shop where Kiki takes care (she was also very friendly). I would definitely come back again and can recommend it to anyone who does not want to be trapped in a Hotel bunker... :-)
