Location

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.

Beautiful Villa

This beautiful villa is in a lovely location for peace and tranquillity. Lovely area for walking but a car or other transport is vital.We had a few teething problems but they were quickly remedied, dont hesitate to call someone if you need help.

Couldnt ask for more

Fantastic villa , great pool and gardens. A well set out villa with plenty of space inside and out with one of the largest pools weve ever had. It maybe a little remote for those wanting nightlife or a small town but only a 10 minute drive to Gouvia. A big thank you to all at Eos for making our holiday go smoothly from the taxi transfer and Spiros waiting at the airport with the car as well ,and all our shopping in the fridge on arrival. The speed that our water shortage was sorted was fantastic , a first for us when the water tanker arrived!! We cannot praise Eos enough for all their organization for us . Hopefully we will be back there again next year.

Perfect location to shine on the island

Situation parfaite pour rayonner sur l'�le, tr�s au calme. Ext�rieur agr�able avec une tr�s belle piscine. Bonne literie et bonne climatisation. La maison m�rite cependant d'�tre rafra�chie. Les tables sont trop juste pour 8 personnes.

Wer es Ruhig und dennoch gut ausgestattet mag, der ist hier richtig!

orab soviel: Wer direkt am Strand sein oder direkten Meerblick haben möchte, sollte eine andere Villa aussuchen. Hier muss mann mind. 20 Minuten mit dem Auto zum nächsten Strand (Auto ist unbedingt notwendig). Für alle anderen kann ich die Villa sehr empfehlen. Großzügiger Garten, schöner Pool, große Terrasse und sehr viel Platz in allen Räumen lässt es sich hier sehr gut entspannen. Es fehlte an nichts. Sogar Netflix ist da. Die Küche ist für mindestens 8 oder mehr Personen voll ausgestattet. Drei Schlafzimmer sind im Hochpatere, eines unten. Alle mit Klima ausgestattet. Die beiden hinteren Schlafzimmer (oben und unten) sind zusätzlich mit begehbarem Kleiderraum und eigener Dusche und Toilette ausgestattet. Das Gemeinschaftsbad ist mit einer Badewanne ausgestattet. Aber wer braucht das schon im Sommer auf einer Insel :-) Auf Grund der Corona-Pandemie und da wir die ersten Gäste in 2020 waren, kann ich nichts zu der Reinigung sagen (es war sehr sauber bei der Ankunft), da das Haus nur vor und nach uns gereinigt wurde. Hierzu bitte aktuelle Situation anfragen. Aber man hat uns genügend Handtücher und Bettwäsche für 14 Tage zur Verfügung gestellt. Küche ist voll ausgestattet, vom Kaffeelöffel bis zu diversen Mixer. Waschmaschine ist ebenfalls vorhanden. Die Lage: Die Villa befindet sich mittig von der Insel. Eine gute Ausgangsposition, um i alle Richtungen mal auszuschwärmen (Achillion ca. 30 Min., Korfu-Stadt ca. 20 Min., Paleokastritsa ca. 30 Min.) Kurzum: Wer es Ruhig und dennoch gut ausgestattet mag, der ist hier richtig.

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.
