Overview

About the property

Situated in ancient olive groves in the gastronomic center of Corfu

One of the most luxurious villas available for private hire in Corfu, The Courti Estate consists of over 1000m2 of buildings originally built 300 years ago. Nestled within 10 acres of ancient olive groves, Courti is the only remaining Venetian estate of its kind in Corfu. From its position on a hill top on the South-Eastern coast of Corfu, Courti enjoys unique 360 degree views. Over the sparkling waters of the Ionian sea to one side, inland towards the mountains and gloriously fertile Corfiot countryside to the other.

As a magnificent villa Courti can accommodate guests in its 9 bedroom suites, expansive living areas, infinity pool and sprawling grounds providing an idyllic holiday retreat for the discerning traveller. As a venue of excellence Courti's buildings and grounds are perfect for conferences or glamorous events, with the facility to host up to five hundred people.

Courti’s two master bedroom suites are set centrally within a courtyard that houses the rest of the estate’s buildings. There are a further 7 luxury double bedroom suites, each with their own private garden space and breathtaking views. A professional kitchen, home cinema and conference facilities, as well as a beautiful private chapel, turn The Courti Estate into a state of the art venue for either private hire, exclusive private events or corporate functions. The infinity pool nestles beautifully amongst the olive groves within easy view of the Olive Press and main living areas.

Extensive fertile land and manicured gardens are integral to the Courti experience. Using seasonal produce from the farm, our chef can create a menu specific to your requirements. Everything else is sourced from a 5km radius from our front gates. And of course there is the olive oil. Top grade, organic, cold pressed olive oil from our trees, exclusive to The Courti Estate.

Courti and its grounds are a perfect environment to keep the children entertained while you relax by the pool. Apart from a fully stocked library, parlour games, table tennis, woodland walks and a bespoke children's play area, our concierge can arrange any children's entertainment on request. For fully vetted and professional childcare options, please contact our concierge.

About The Owner

I grew up in London and Corfu with an English father and a Greek mother. My connection to Corfu goes back many generations and my grandfather was the famous (in Corfu) maestro of the philarmonic orchaestra, Spyridon Doukakis.

The Owner purchased this estate in 2009

Why The Owner chose Mesoggi

The Courti Estate was a derelict and run down property of former glory when I bought it. The project was both satisfying and painstaking as great care was taken to restore this Venetian mansion to its former glory whilst discretely incorporating the modern comforts of technology. The location, style and luxury is calming on the soul and a welcome break from the hectic pace of life from London. See our website for more details:

What makes this estate unique

Unforgettable Experience

  • 5 of 5

There aren't enough positive words to explain my experience at the Corti Estate. The property, amenities, and surrounding area made for an unforgettable experience. Chryssa and Keiran are the ultimate hosts and provided us with first class accommodations in their beautifully renovated property that sits atop s secluded hill overlooking the ocean and Corfu's beautiful countryside. When we weren't relaxing by the pool or enjoying the spacious grounds, we were treated to meals served by our own personal chef who used all local ingredients to make the most amazing dishes. It made it very difficult to want to leave the property, but when we did, there was so much to see and in do in Corfu, from the beautiful beaches, historic downtown area, and local restaurants to grab drink.

Corti is the ultimate relaxation spot. I can't wait to go back!

Beautiful, Relaxing Retreat for a large group

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful short vacation trip staying in this estate with a few friends. The rooms are very spacious and everything is of an extremely high standard. The views from the main villa are particularly stunning. The Beach and other amenities are a very short walk down the hill, although we found it preferable to simple relax in the villa. I highly recommend a stay here.

Absolutely exquisite property!

  • 5 of 5

My stay at The Courti Estate was nothing short of magical. Everything from the restoration and design of the property, to the luxurious amenities, to the warm and welcoming owners and staff was perfect. The property is beautiful: each guest room is bespoke with unique features and high-end finishes, and each is spacious, offering every comfort you would need. The "main house" has a beautiful, large communal table, at which you can take in a gorgeous view of the Corfu landscape, the infinity pool and the ocean. The kitchen is a state-of-the-art chef's kitchen, complete with everything you'd need. The property itself sits atop a hill and is quiet and secluded, but just a short walk to the beach, shops and restaurants.

The last thing I'll say is that Chryssa and Kieran, who own the property, could not have been more helpful and hospitable - giving us recommendations on where to go in Corfu, while making sure our stay at their property was the best it could be. After a week at Courti, I left Corfu so relaxed, and so happy. I would definitely recommend The Courti Estate to anyone who enjoys understated, thoughtful luxury. I cannot wait to go back someday!

a dream resort

  • 5 of 5

The Courti Estate was immaculate and catered for our every need.

The walk to the beach was 5 minutes .

The rooms were air conditioned , clean and spacious .

The grounds of the estate are breathtaking and the onsite pool a major asset in the height of Summer.

The choice of restaurants is vast within walking distance from Courti.

Looking forward to our return visit

The property is an excellent location where guests can walk into the busting seaside village of Messonghi or take a short drive to the protected unspoiled beached of Halikounas. Several of the most highly rated restaurants in Corfu are nearby too. Rent a boat (no license required) and visit a secluded cove, do some fishing or just relax in the sun. The weather is almost guaranteed to be excellent in the summer months. There are many things to do and our concierge will be happy to assist in making your visit a cherished memory.
