This beautiful hilltop estate stands in its own olive grove of more than 100 ancient trees and has spectacular 360-degree views. 

The land slopes away on all sides to yet more olive groves, ensuring total peace and privacy away from the jet skis, traffic and bustle of the coast down below.

The gardens offer a choice of sun or shade with multiple terraces surrounding the house and a lovely saline pool with an infinity edge.

An open-sided pool pavilion has deep cushioned seating and low tables on three sides – the perfect place to relax, take a siesta, enjoy evening drinks or light dining. The pool area has its own fridge, changing room, shower and loo.

Ancient flagstones line the porch and the spacious hall has stunning, three-directional views over mainland Greece, Albania and Corfu Town.

The house is furnished with crafted wooden doors and ceilings, painted cypress-wood floors, antique furniture, lovely art, books and beautiful fabrics. All the bedrooms and bathrooms have insect screens, ceiling fans and air conditioning.

This is an elegant and refined home, beautifully done and equally beautifully maintained, and comes with maid service both morning and evening and an excellent cook.

This is a very refined example of Corfu living and a house for those who appreciate the difference.
