Corfiot Inherent Elegance and Finesse

ΙL GIARDINO SEGRETO DI PROSPERO is an intriguing mix of tradition, elegance, finesse and comfort that offers a get away with a fairy-tale view of the most amazing Corfiot landscape, flora and fauna.

Prospero, William Shakespeare’s Prince in exile in the great poet’s final play “The Tempest”, takes his shipwrecked enemies as prisoners to the magical island of Corfu where, aided by the magical art of nature, he forgives them and helps them to discover both themselves and the joy of life.

Fast forward four hundred years to ΙL GIARDINO SEGRETO DI PROSPERO - a brand new yet traditional country mansion, lovingly built within the grounds of a centuries old 7,000 sq.m olive grove that pre-dates Shakespeare himself. Sat within its own garden in a peaceful location above the beautiful Ipsos bay, on one of the most picturesque points of the north-eastern part of Corfu with breathtaking views over the Corfu Channel towards the mountains of Albania, it provides an ideal setting for a relaxed family holiday, away from it all, but close to all essential holiday amenities.

This brand new , large , traditional and artistic Corfiot country mansion, has carefully designed and architecture living rooms, verandas and patios, to provide a large party the unique ability to enjoy their vacation all together in communal relaxing spaces, both in and outdoors, while at the same time not losing the potential of privacy for each individual residence.

The four residences are available individually or as one, accommodating up to twenty people in total.

The olive green main steel entrance with its’ twin Venetian lanterns, reminiscent of a long gone but not forgotten age and surrounded by deep red bougainvilla, leads you into the fairy-tale garden. There along with the ancient olive trees are tall cypresses, orange, lemon, almond, peach and cherry trees, as well as exquisite mint plants.

Wood, stone, pebbles, cement-mortar, traditionally used in the construction of Corfiot houses, are the sole building materials for this exceptional country mansion. It consists of four individual residences, all of them offering amazing views of the sea and Mount Pantokrator.

Why Ioannis and Maria chose Corfu

ΙL GIARDINO SEGRETO DI PROSPERO is an intriguing mix of tradition, elegance, finesse and comfort that offers a get away with a fairy-tale view of the most amazing Corfiot landscape, flora and fauna.

What makes this villa unique

Edward Lear wrote to Emily , the wife of Lord Alfred Tennyson during his second long stay in Corfu , from the winter of 1861 till the end of Spring of 1962 , about Corfu.

“The island is more beautiful than ever and I cannot imagine a more fairy-tale view or more perfect Greek landscape.Life here is completely different from the frenetic , annoying lightness of the city and I’m under the impression that here I’m rejuvenating a year every hour”.

Of a scene in Corfu Lear wrote, in February 1863, “Absolute glorious calm & clearness all day . . . the magnificent colour of these dells of orange & lemon trees, with the greyer olive & amethyst hills, are inimitable & wondrous”.

If you wish to rejuvenate yourself “a year every hour” , all you have to do is visit Prospero’s island , the queen of the Ionian sea , unique Corfu and spend your stay at Il Giardino Segreto di Prospero , hidden in the olive grove portraid by Edward Lear , simply thinking that everything happens for a reason «OMNIA CAUSA FIUNT».

Meravigliosa

  • 5 of 5

Ciao a tutti , a fine luglio abbiamo affittato tutta la villa ( 4 famiglie ) e siamo stati benissimo , il posto è fantastico , le case arredate con molto gusto , ognuna ha i suoi spazi e la piscina super ... le spiagge più belle sono a qualche chilometro ma a piedi si raggiunge comodamente quella più vicina dove la sera c'è vita specie per i ragazzi , fondamentale la macchina ! Il proprietario Ioannis è bravissimo e molto disponibile

Σαν στο εξοχικό σου

  • 5 of 5

Η αίσθηση που έχεις όταν βρίσκεσαι σ’ αυτό το υπέροχο περιβάλλον είναι σαν κάποιος να έφτιαξε το εξοχικό που ονειρευόσουν να αποκτήσεις, είναι σαν να φτιάχτηκε για σένα. Οι ιδιοκτήτες ευγενικοί και διακριτικοί. Ελπίζω τον ερχόμενο καλοκαίρι να ξαναβρεθώ εκεί.

Με δύο λέξεις εξαιρετικό. Συστήνεται ανεπιφύλακτα.
