General Information

Corfu town is one of the most charming and romantic places of the whole Greece.
It is a perfect example of ancient Venetian and Byzantine art that will be able to fascinate you with its little streets and panoramic points.
Surrounded by the sea, the town of Corfu is closed between the two ancient fortresses.

The town of Corfu is located in a strategic position at the entrance of the Adriatic Sea, and has its roots in the 8th century BC. The three forts of the town, designed by renowned Venetian engineers, were used for four centuries to defend the maritime trading interests of the Republic of Venice against the Ottoman Empire. In the course of time, the forts were repaired and partly rebuilt several times, more recently under British rule in the 19th century. The mainly neoclassical housing stock of the Old Town is partly from the Venetian period, partly of later construction, notably the 19th century. As a fortified Mediterranean port, Corfu’s urban and port ensemble is notable for its high level of integrity and authenticity.
It will be an unforgettable experience to spend hours and hours just walking up and down along thousands of small paved streets, looking around to discover the old town secrets and buying some presents to bring back home. Buy traditional products in ancient cellars, surrounded by stone staircases, old Venetian walls and hidden gardens.
Every single building, every single street will appear like an open museum, but the joie de vivre of the local people will remember you that the old town is also full of life and full of surprises.

In the beautifully preserved Old Town of Corfu, a UNESCO world heritage site, Renaissance, Baroque and Classical “repertoire” came to be successfully applied to local artistic traditions. Palaces, fortresses, austere public buildings of the Venetian rule uniquely blend with lines of drying washing in tiny alleyways and small secluded squares. Strolling through a complex of narrow cobbled streets with stairways and vaulted passages, the so-called “kantoúnia”, will make you feel as if you’ve travelled to Venice or Genoa.

A romantic walk from the old fortress all the way along the coastal pavement, around Garitsa bay, will lead you to the far end of the bay, where an Windmill (Anemomylos as is called in Greek) is decorating this part of the town. Enjoy a coffee or a drink at the little caffe in the windmill watching the moored boats and the luxury yachts all around the bay.

Just 1.5 km up the hill, at the back of the Windmill, "rest" the traces of the ancient city of Corfu (8th cent. BC) is the green estate of Mon Repos, which spreads over 258 acres of lush vegetation and beautiful gardens, which adorn scattered fragments of ancient memory.
In the estate of Mon Repos, which occupies most of the hill of Analipsis (the Ascension), built his summer mansion in 1831, the British High Commissioner of the Ionian Islands Frederic Adam for the sake of his beloved wife Corfiot Nina Palatianou in plans English architect Gouaitmor (Whitmore).
In 1864, after the Union of the Ionian Islands with Greece, the city of Corfu gave the palace and gardens in the dynasty of George I in order to use it as a summer residence. King George I was also the one who gave him so graphically the name Mon Repos (My Rest).
Just on 1991 the Justice ruled that the Mon Repos belongs to the people of Corfu. In this decision helped a lot and the ruins of ancient temples, the best preserved, which, according to the archaeological evidence is believed to belong to Apollo, the oldest and largest, as also the scant evidence of Akraia Ira, like the other signs left by the time, since in this area was the extended Paleopolis, part of the ancient city of Corfu. It is worth noting that until 1991 the access to property for guests was impossible.
Sightseeing:

Corfu's pedestrian-only old town is a warren of crumbling Venetian-style buildings, Italianate churches, chic boutiques and rustic tavernas. Locals gather on the Spianada, a vast green space where they play cricket, and the Liston, a 19th-century arcade sheltering a string of cafes. Guarding the town and accessed from the Spianada, the Old Fortress juts out into the sea, while the New Fortress commands a hilltop position behind the old town.

Reviews

Very nice place

Large villa with great swimming pool. Kitchen fully equipped. Quite and peaceful with privacy. Location is inland so you will need a car. Rooms are spacious and outdoors is well maintained. We visited in October and unfortunately there were many mosquitoes, which was a problem. However, we recommend the villa to those who wants to spend family time around the pool.

Beautiful property, pool and a wonderful stay

The EOS team were highly responsive and professional - made the whole experience even more enjoyable. The villa itself is very comfortable and spacious, with a lovely garden and swimming pool. Very peaceful - would strongly recommend for either families or groups of friends.

A very good familie house!We enjoyed our stay.One little point. At night it was a bit cold. We would like an extra blanket. We solved the problem to take the blanket from the extra bed.

Beautiful homely villa

This is a beautiful villa that had everything we needed for a comfortable stay.The shady area by the pool is large and works perfectly on hot days and we loved the lounging area under the porch area for drinking and playing cards ect.If I was to change anything I would just have a bigger table outside,it was a bit tight for 7 and the basement although has lots of character and double doors on to a court yard just needs a bit of extra care to bring it up to the standard of the other 3 rooms which are lovely.Its missing mirrors, bedspreads lamps with shades ect.It is a rual location with no local shop.Nearest shop is the supermarket on the main road 8 mins?.Corfu town was easy to get to by car 15min? and Gouvia is a very pretty beach off the main road.we hired a boat from here to do the north east coast which is definitely the best way to see the island.overall the villa is clean and comfortable and we had a wonderful stay.
