We have the pleasure to present to the market this rare opportunity to own this charming historic home. This home of 520sqm is distributed over 4 levels and offers charm elegance and historic authenticity. It is one of the few surviving examples of Venetian Manor Houses built in the sixteenth century on the beautiful Ionian island of Corfu.
The property has been restored with great care from the actual owner family, respecting the natural features of the place. There remains a substantial Olive Press attached to the main house which is sound with a relatively new roof and has the potential to provide at least another five bedrooms.
This unique property consists of a main house as well as a cleverly converted annex occupying the former stables to the house; ideally located to accommodate staff or renovated as a separate annex.
This home is quintessentially Durrellian, the atmospheric ambience of this home carries you back to the well documented accounts by both Laurence and Gerald Durrell. Proof of which is that it has hosted the Gerald Durrell’s Corfu event since 2007 and is a favorite haunt of both Dr David Bellamy and Dr Lee Durrell.
This very special place has panoramic ever changing views over the olive groves to the sea and mountains beyond. It is located on the edge of a tiny traditional village, and a short walk takes you to the next village offering taverns and local shops.

North West Corfu is a unique part of the island of Corfu, it is situated between the exclusive and expensive Kensington on Sea, which is very convenient for a magical day out in a boat exploring the sandy coves and enjoying lunch at one of the exclusive restaurants on the waterfront. Heading in the opposite direction will take you to the remote Diapontia islands, or stop for a meze at the lesser known beachside taverns. The resorts of Kassiopi, Acharavi and Sidari are easily accessed for live music or a busier nightlife.
