At Kokkokila the road winds up through and around the hills above St Stephano, flanked by almond trees and beehives, ending abruptly in ancient olive groves. It is there that Kokkokila stands. A house like Kokkokila is not created overnight. It does not spring, ready to occupy, from a drawing board. It evolves, with pieces brought from home or travels, with books and sketches left by friends, with growing plants.
Kokkokila, a house of sunwarmed stones and green shutters has all the charm of a typical Mediterranean farmhouse, but still retains the unmistakable Corfiot character of the original humble shepherd’s cottage, dating from 1740. However beautiful the interior of the villa may be, it is the combination of terraces and views that proves irresistible.
The outside dining terrace is broad and shady, and there are numerous corners in shade or sun that are perfect for quiet moments with a book or a sketch pad. The sheer elegance of the swimming pool, elevated slightly on its own terrace above the house, is complemented by the fantastic view across the Corfu channel to the austere, silent mountains of Albania. An unspoilt Corfu still exists – and Kokkokila is proof of this.
