Overview

About the property

A spacious and private, fully renovated 1 bedroom stone house for couples

Mulberry House is a spacious and private, fully renovated stone house nestling on the edge of the hamlet of Rou in the hills above the North East coast of Corfu.

With unparalleled views across the Corfu channel to Albania and the the Greek mainland, Mulberry offers unique luxury accommodation for couples seeking the authentic Greece and traditional Corfiot hospitality, with easy access to the beaches and bays of North East Corfu.

Named after the ancient mulberry tree on the driveway, its our pleasure to offer our lovingly restored stone house set in its own private grounds. Enjoy the glorious sunshine on one of the extensive private terraces, cooling in the plunge pool, or sit under any number of olive and almond trees as the scent of lavender and rosemary wafts by.

The House itself features a large lounge with french doors onto a balcony with glorious views across the Corfu channel to Albania beyond. The air conditioned feature bedroom with one super king size bed and large en-suite bathroom, has its own access direct onto a stone terrace. You might be serenaded to sleep by the Scops owl sonata whilst watching fireflies dancing outside, or awake to a glorious sunrise over the Albanian mountains.

While we've worked hard to maintain the traditional character of the house, that hasn't been at the expense of modern amenities: from super-fast WiFi (a rarity in Corfu) to an extensively kitted-out kitchen and en-suite bathroom.

Situated on the edge of the once abandoned hamlet of Rou, a few minutes from the traditional mountain village of Porta with its two authentic little tavernas and locals’ cafe, and yet only 20 minutes by car from the coast and some of Corfu’s finest restaurants, beaches and coves: Agni, San Stefanos, Kerassia and Kalami (with its famous White House, some-time home to the Durrells).

There are fabulous walks from our front door to heritage villages like Megoulas and Old Perithia, criss-crossing the famous Corfu Trail.

Mulberry is designed for couples, and is not suitable for children or teenagers. Given it's remoteness, a car is essential.

About Philip Donnelly

Hello! We’re Phil Donnelly and Ginny Walker. Welcome to Corfu and Mulberry House!

We fell in love with Greece –and each other- back in 1988 when we met while working in a dusty little town on the edge of the Epirus on the mainland called Agrinion. Of course this was pre-internet, pre-mobile/cell phone and in Agrinion pre-phone altogether! Communication home was only possible through a pre-booked slot in the town’s telephone exchange -the eponymous OTE.

As two impoverished graduates we promised ourselves that one day we would return to Greece and have our own place here. It took a little longer than expected (we bought Mulberry House and Cottage in 2015!) but now we are here and delighted to welcome you to our own little bit of Greek paradise.

Philip Donnelly purchased this house in 2015

Why Philip Donnelly chose Rou

Perhaps now best known to the 6 million viewers of the 2016 ITV hit show The Durrells, Corfu has been the home of artists, writers and poets for centuries. It was Gerry Durrell’s older brother Lawrence who famously described Corfu as “a peninsula nipped off while red hot and allowed to cool into an antarctica of lava” in his 1945 classic, Prospero’s Cell (just have a look at Corfu on Google maps to see what he means!)

The best time to visit? This very much depends on your own preferences, but we love walking the Corfu Trail in April and October when you can still be assured of bright, sunny days. And because of our location in the hills above the north east coast, the sometimes oppresive heat on the coast in mid summer is tempered by the Corfiot afternoon breeze.

What makes this house unique

Location, location location...is what our guests tell us:

"A fantastic place to relax and chill out..."

“What a fantastic location. Great views and Corfu countryside right outside your bedroom window. Mulberry is everything we could have asked for. We just relaxed and soaked up the experience”

“Eagles overhead, pinemartins and tiny screech owls…”

“The House is excellent, spacious and well-organised. We particularly love the view through the french doors from the bedroom"

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wow! What a beautiful villa in such a beautiful part of the world. We’ve had a brilliant week at Mulberry and Corfu itself, very sad to go home. The villa has everything you need and more. Absolutely beautiful and comfortable. A perfect holiday.

Very nice house with wonderful view

  • 5 of 5

Mulberry house is in a wonderful location, the view down to Corfu Channel and the Albanian and Greek coast just impressive. The house is nicely furnished, the bed very comfortable, the temperatures on the inside cool, even on hot days. Everything was very clean when we got there and the cleaning service during the week impeccable. The kitchen was well equipped and the welcome package appreciated. We enjoyed our vacation very much.
