About the property

Base yourself in comfort at this Corfiot house and explore the island

A traditional, semi-detached cottage in the village of Agioi Deka with its beautiful surroundings that makes it an ideal walking and cycling territory, with aromatic olive groves filling the landscape. The house is a short drive from the superb beaches of Pelekas, Glyfada, Agios Gordis, Benitses as well as Corfu Town.

When you step inside the yellow-washed house you’re greeted by white walls, chunky beamed ceilings and wooden floors. Although it’s been given a modern makeover it’s still got a really comfy-cosy look. Open-plan lounge/kitchen and separate WC on the ground floor, double bedroom with feature fireplace, bathroom and balcony on first floor. The roof terrace is the big highlight with 360-degree views of the village’s tiled rooftops and the sea in the distance.

Upper floor • 1 double bedroom • A/c in bedroom• Bathroom • Lower floor • open-plan lounge area/kitchen • Separate WC

As for The village of Agioi Deka, it is a prime example of traditional Corfu architecture, offers a rare opportunity to mix with the locals. Try home cooking with locally grown ingredients and holiday having access to the best the island has to offer. Overlooking the east side of the island, the village is easily accessed through a network of national roads from all directions. There are panoramic views from any part of the village.

Take a 10 minute drive to the top of mount Pantokrator, there you can enjoy the most spectacular east to west views of the island and visit the old monastery situated at the peak; or take a 30 minute walk eastwards from Agioi Deka to the sea on a short-cut road leading through the olive groves to the little beach town of Benitses, a lively place with bars and restaurants.

hillside apartment in traditional village

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The roof garden was a very special feature, overloooking the village pantile roofs and with long views over to Corfu town and the sea. You do need to be reasonably nimble to get to it: the access is via steep stairs and crawling through a window. The apartment is beautifully cool and comfortably furnished. We slept well. It had all we needed without over-provision of kitchen utensils etc. It's open plan so is really only suitable for a couple. Mother-in-law provided a very friendly welcome with a bottle of wine, fruit and flowers. The local tarvernas were also very friendly and welcoming. Excellent local bakery and useful mini-market in the village.
