From the heyday of the former Royal summer palace at Mon Repos, Corfu has always attracted some of Greece's leading families, who have created homes and gardens of legendary beauty, style and comfort - This is such a home, beautifully designed and built to the highest possible specification in one of Corfu's most select areas - the Kommeno Peninsula.
This is a house where luxury speaks quietly: in immaculate lawns edged with plumbago and bougainvillea; in Persian carpets on a cool expanse of marble; in the large, airy rooms, where the designer has used the huge windows and panoramic views of the sea, island promontories and the distant marina as a breath-taking natural work of art. The finest modern furniture and textiles are combined with carefully chosen antiques and splashes of modern art, yet the latest technology is also used throughout the house - bathrooms and the spacious kitchen are state-of-the-art. This villa has a beautiful pool but the grounds also have their own tunnel connecting the house to a cove under a narrow lane. Unobtrusive staff quarters under the house mean that a nanny or cook may be retained.
