About the property

Warm family home close to Corfu town and beaches, with large pool and big garden

This is a Paleopetres property, we like the best of two worlds: Authenticity combined with Comfort.

This is a real family home, open, warm and welcoming. The house is surrounded by terraces and shaded 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.

Built with natural materials there reigns a soothing and serene atmosphere. The living areas indoors are spacious and welcoming.

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.

Totally restored in 2015, the house 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.

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.

Why Joanne chose Kastania

We were seduced by the magnificent sea 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 manager

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.

My 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

Excellent holiday home in Corfu

  • 5 of 5

We recently enjoyed a 2 week family holiday in Corfu at this impressive property. The villa is extremely well maintained and well equipped. We have rented many holiday homes in Greece and throughout Europe and have never come across a villa that well equipped to welcome a family. The property is large, with the pool positioned a few steps down from the house. The pool is large, well maintained, and at the perfect temperature. There is a pool house next to it that is also very practical. The house has very good distribution, all rooms are large and comfortable, and the master suite on the top level is very large. It even has an adjacent study that we converted into a room for our 6 year old daughter. The owner is extremely hands on and helpful. Prior to our arrival some groceries we requested were made and placed in the kitchen and we had a cot bed for our 2 year old son as well as a high chair. The bathrooms are well designed and brand new. The kitchen is tasteful and very well equipped. We hired a private chef for the stay and he was able to find everything he needed in the kitchen. There is wifi on the main level of the house and cable tv and an Apple TV is available. The view is peaceful with a lot of greenery. The external parts of the house are also very comfortable. A cleaning lady was provided daily, Nena, who was very friendly, very good at her job, and always willing to help. The access to the house is a bit tricky, but that is standard in Corfu and in the islands in general. You definitely need a car. The house is just 10 minutes from the centre of Corfu which is priceless when you have a family and want to be able to go into town without a long drive. The beaches however are a bit far, with the closest one we visited being a 20 minute drive. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and look forward to our next stay at this property.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much. It is so important to me to read your feedback in order to understand where I can improve. I know this house but your experience is so precious and unique, and your eyes catch what I don’t see anymore as I am used to it. For me, it is wonderful to know that your family was able to feel home and comfortable in the same way as I do. I love sharing it with people that have the sensibility to appreciate it. Jehanne
