About the property

Ideally situated close to beaches and Corfu town, with large pool and garden.

This is a real family home, open, warm and welcoming.

Built with precious natural materials (stone, iron, wood, old bricks) there reigns a soft and relaxing atmosphere. The living spaces are very spacious, leaving the possibility to everyone to find its own place without disturbing the others. The house is surrounded by terraces and shady pergolas giving several options for meals or recreation. The large swimming pool in the garden is sufficiently distant to allow to have a quiet siesta while others choose to swim.

Totally restored in 2015, it was designed by an architect constantly in search of harmony and quality but also looking for advanced technology, offering maximum comfort while enabling low power consumption in order to preserve the environment.

The house is located on a hill covered with cypresses and olive trees, in a very quiet corner of the island, away from the crowd. At few km away from the center of Corfu town and from beaches, it's position is ideal.

Corfu is a small town of 30 000 inhabitants, very lively all year round. The city received a Venetian imprint, with small alleys full of charm, lots of taverns, restaurants, cafes, small shops of every kind. The Corfiots love to meet each other in town, have a chat, sip an ouzo with 'pikilia' (plate with nibbles), read their paper taking the time to enjoy life. There prevails a very mediterranean atmosphere with a friendly, gentle and absolutely non violent attitude.

There are several museums, palaces and fortresses which are worth visiting.

About Jehanne

It was a privilege for me to have been adopted by this magic island and their sweet inhabitants. My children grew up here summer after summer and are still looking forward to come back. Corfu is the island where their father was born. (Unfortunately he passed away last year.) He was a civil engineer and left us beautiful houses.

Jehanne purchased this villa in 1985

Why Jehanne chose Corfu

We were seduced by the magnificent views, the soft surroundings of cypresses and olive trees, away from tourism. It became a family home full of wonderful memories that continue to feed our imagination and creativity.

What makes this villa unique

The position, the amazing views, the peace, the trees, the unique atmosphere of an old house with new comfort.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Superbe maison, très confortable, les matériaux utilisés pour la construction sont de très grande qualité, la décoration est parfaite et aucune photo ne peut rendre justice à la vue extraordinaire à 180 degré sur la mer et sur la ville de Corfou de l'autre côté de la baie. Mon commentaire Merci! Quel privilege d'avoir des hôtes qui ont cette sensibilité et qui apprécient la beauté de ce qui les entoure. C'est aussi un formidable encouragement pour continuer à améliorer cette maison que j'aime. Jehanne

The perfect house for a family holiday in Corfu

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautifully designed, built and decorated family house near the picturesque village of Castania high above Corfu Town and overlooking the Ionian Sea on the Northeast side of the island with amazing views to the coast of Albania. Conveniently located ten minutes drive from the airport and twenty minutes to stunning beaches, Jehanne is a wonderful host. We were met at the airport and shown the house, provided a very welcoming basket of foods and staples and a perfect list of restaurants and beaches as well as recommendations for boat charters (sail and power.) The house was immaculately clean and spotlessly decorated, fully equipped with everything needed including an outdoor pizza oven! We had housekeeping three times a week and pool and garden service. The house is spectacular and perfect for entertaining with no less than five dining areas and a huge sitting room area. Very private with beautifully landscaped garden filled with delightful flowers as well as fruit trees - limes, figs, plums and oranges. Thank you Jehanne for renting us your perfect holiday home. We are dreaming of our return.

Owner's Response: This is so encouraging to me, thank you very much Matthew! I love taking care of my guests and seeing them happy is a wonderful reward. Every time it is a different story, with different personalities, demands and challenges but when you put all your heart in your work, somehow, it reaches the right destination and it makes people feel good. Vacations are unique moments where families or friends have finally some time to rediscover each other. Those moment are very precious and shouldn't be spoiled! Jehanne
