Local Information

Up in the cool hills above the coast above Sinies, this house is in a tiny hamlet, peaceful and ancient. This area surrounds Mount Pantokratour and , in spring and autumn, the hills are dotted with glorious smelling, stunning flora including a great variety of wild orchid.

There are three roads down the hill from the house to Kassiopi, St Stephano, Koloura and Agni which have their fair share of “best of” – Agni boasts the 3 best tavernas on the island, Koloura is an idyllic horseshoe shaped harbour with another wonderful taverna, St Stephano is the very popular fishing village with wonderful restaurants and beautiful beach while Kassiopi offers great nightlife for the young.
The fabulous long white pebbly beach of Avlaki (flanked by protected forest) is not far at all, and there is sailing available. There are reliable onshore winds in the afternoon making it great for every standard of yachtsman. It is home to yet another wonderful Taverna filled with local Corfiots on Sundays who regularly make their way from Corfu Town for its exceptional cooking and cooling breeze under the trees. Explore inland to visit the highest point on the island, that of the famous Mount Pantokrator. Drive up and up through the stunning and remote hilltop villages with breathtaking views in all directions. Visit the monastery of Ipsilos and eat lunch in the small taverna. You will have a spectacular view of Albania from there.

There are some great walks from the house, walk to Katavalos (approx 1km) or up to the deserted heritage village of Megoulas.

Our View

It’s such a relief to have such a beautiful house for two in Corfu. This is just the most romantic spot in the hills with beautiful views down to the coast.
The designer-owner has put so much thought into this fabulous conversion which she discovered as an ancient and roofless farmhouse with thick stone walls and original features. The interiors, filled with beautiful pieces of furniture from her travels and stunning textiles as well as a generous offering of books, stunning wooden objets and glorious ceramics.

The kitchen is very cool – it has high ceilings and a lovely mixture of ancient and modern, from the sleek wooden bowls and hundreds of wooden spoons to the canvas chairs and country-style cupboards, we would have stayed in this room all day. That is, until we saw the rest of the house. The sitting room is bright and welcoming with a glorious view, a wood burner for winter months is central to the room with comfy sofas and chairs dotted around.

The big bedroom downstairs is certainly a luxury, an Indian settle against the wall and wonderful cushions scattered hither and thither, this is much more a home than a rental house. It is wonderfully light and incredibly stylish, sympathetically decorated to create a relaxed and spacious home.

This is such a wonderful retreat for two who want to write, paint, sunbathe or watch the many eagles, kites and buzzards who visit the valley below the house.
