About the property

Ionian Eye Design Studios

*Our philosophy is one of wellness, relaxation and rejuvenation; therefore we do not accept children less than 10 years of age.

The Ionian Eye design studios have a perfect location - just ten minutes walk from the centre of Messonghi village, above the road to Boukari, surrounded by olive and citrus groves, with uninterrupted views of the sea.

The renovated interiors, designed by Robert Rys, incorporate innovative, organic and sustainably sourced products. Comfort and relaxation have been considered from design concept to completion. Quality fittings are complimented by chic furnishings commissioned especially for the Ionian Eye.

The studios have been thoughtfully designed so that the sleeping and living areas of the double and triple studios are well defined. The kitchenette, although compact, contains a refrigerator, ceramic hob, microwave, toaster, kettle, cutlery, china and glassware, cooking pans and utensils. All the brands chosen are trusted for their reliability and quality. The double glazed doors/windows filter noise and heat and are fitted with mosquito nets. All studios are air conditioned, which is free of charge. A flat screen TV with satellite TV channels and a hairdryer add to making your stay more comfortable. Wi-fi internet access is complementary and parking is available on site.

The studios on the first and second floor have a full sea view and a furnished balcony.

The studios on the ground floor have a large wooden decked terrace and pergola, two sun loungers and a table and chairs. These studios have a view of the sea and the Greek Mainland that is slightly interrupted by ancient olive trees. The ground floor studios have no steps to access them, they a reached by a gentle slope from the side of the reception office.

In 2017 the Serene Pool Bar was opened. As the name suggests, it is a continuation of our philosophy of relaxation and wellness. Serving nutritious and delicious breakfast smoothies, local pastries, fresh ground coffee and top quality ice cream. Quality wines, premium drinks and classic cocktails are also available.

Highly recommended to anyone who needs a break!

  • 5 of 5

I needed a getaway from all the everyday stresses and that is exactly what I got here! It is a really nice place to relax and chillout by their lovely pool and bar. Eveyone I met was warm and helpful. The room was very clean and I really liked their minimalist and modern design. Messonghi is a very nice area, quiet and peaceful.

Just perfect...

  • 5 of 5

This was my 5th time at Ionian Eye Studios (I guess I like it!) and it didn’t disappoint.

I arrived late at night and there was complimentary tea and coffee sachets, biscuits and 2 small ice cold bottles of water in the fridge. I’d also asked if a carton of milk could be left for me and it was there.

My room is classed as a “family room” as there is a bedroom plus a living area with a bed settee.

The bedroom has an en-suite bathroom/wet room with shower, a generous dressing table and large mirror and drawers and a cupboard. There is also air con and a large flat screen TV. The bed is so comfortable and luxurious it makes you want to have an extra half hour!

The living area or “second bedroom” has another bathroom, a wardrobe, a dressing area with drawers, air con and a large flat screen TV.

There is also a small kitchenette with everything you would need to keep yourself going when not dining at one of the excellent little restaurants in the village or overlooking the sea.

There is another bathroom/wet room in this area. There is also free WiFi and a safe.

The studios are ultra-modern and stylish. The bedding changed twice a week and towels are changed 3 times a week but the Maids come in most days to empty bins, brush and mop and do a general tidy.

You are also provided with plenty large fluffy towels and beach/pool towels.

The rooms are surrounded by stunning sea views and gorgeous foliage which is well maintained.

There is an amazing pool area with a brand bar area, new decking, very comfortable and modern sun loungers and a breath-taking view of the Ionian Sea.

The studios are situated in a peaceful area 5 minutes stroll from the village where there are 2 supermarkets, lots of tavernas, coffee shops and the main beach.

Leigh (guest relations manager) and Costas (owner) are always welcoming and on hand to help and nothing is too much trouble.

I would highly recommend Ionian Eye Studios and I am already looking forward to staying there next year.

Thank you Costas and Leigh x

The centre of Messonghi village is a short ten minute walk from the property and is considered to be one of the most friendly and charming resorts on Corfu. It is surrounded by mountains and is separated from Moraitika by the Messonghi River. It is not a coincidence that this resort pioneered tourism in Greece. Archaeological findings of early settlements dated 50,000 B.C. have been excavated here, making the area interesting also from another point of view.

The well organized beach has some excellent tavernas serving fresh local fish and seafood. There are supermarkets for basic requirements and a bakery. Restaurants are found all around the village serving excellent traditional Greek and Corfiot dishes. There are a couple of bars with a chilled ambience.

The Messonghi River, (a 15 minute walk), divides the resorts and is the base for the daily boat tours to the Mainland and the Sea Caves. These tours can be booked from the on site office, along with speed boat rental and cruises to Paxos and Anti Paxos.

There are plenty of activities on offer that will appeal to many guests, from the extreme sports of kite surfing and fast, downhill mountain biking to hiking and organic cookery classes or massage and pampering treatments.

The Ionian Eye is an excellent base for exploring the island, especially the not so well known villages and resorts in the South. The bigger village of Moraitika is 1,5 km from the property where you can find a larger selection of supermarkets, boutiques, souvenir shops, restaurants, and bars. The village of Chlomos, famous for its amazing views can be reached by foot. It is a 3km up hill walk, but worth the effort! Corfu Town is a 45 minute bus ride from Messonghi Village. The public bus service is cheap and frequent. Benitses, on the road to Corfu Town, is an busy holiday resort with a small marina, an interesting Old Village where ruins of a Roman Bath House can be found. If you want to go further afield, vehicle rental is easy and relatively cheap and can be pre booked prior to your arrival or through our onsite office.

The property is approximately half an hour by taxi, depending on the traffic, from the airport.
