On the side of a gently sloping hill just outside the village of Kato Korakiana, this property has some of the best views we have seen in every direction. Unusually for Corfu, this lovely villa is built entirely of wood. It is therefore extremely well insulated, against summer heat and winter chills and is energy efficient and earthquake resistant. The manufacturers are Finnish – a well established firm with an excellent reputation for quality.


The steps up to the front door open into the spacious living area. On one side is the kitchen, traditional in design, with painted cupboards and with all modern features. The living and dining room, are separated by a half-wall, and at the front, overlooking the gardens, through enormous patio windows, is the sitting room with a stone fireplace.

On one side of the sitting area, are two very large bedrooms. One is currently used as an office with a separate door leading outside. The other room has has a flexible design so that it can be used as one large room, or divided in the case of visitors and the need for extra beds. These two rooms share a large shower room and can be divided from the rest of the house as a guest suite.

Stairs lead from the living area up to a further three large double bedrooms, with each bedroom having its own veranda, plus fully fitted wardrobes. On this floor there is a large family bathroom with unusual “pebble” style tiling.

All the windows throughout the house have high quality insulated double glazing, mosquito screens and folding solid wood shutters.


The swimming pool is an attractive kidney shape with a waterfall feature and plenty of space for sunbathing. The whole pool area is fenced and gated making it safe for small children.

The garden has been planted with mature shrubs and fruit trees, and has a section laid to lawn. Within the fenced and gated area there is an additional building allowance of 400 sq.m, offering great scope for expansion. The house has central heating and air-conditioning, telephone, and wifi connection.

Due to the owners’ relocation to Athens, the house has been put on the market. It is a unique property – the only one of its kind in Corfu and is sure to appeal to lovers of eco-building who are looking for something out of the ordinary, and is a highly successful holiday rental.
