Holiday Rental House
You are very welcome in a house, which counts more than two centuries! This cottage was built in early 19th century to host a French officer while Corfu was under Napoleon’s command. Recently, the olive press and the stable were restored and altered into apartments decorated with the original antique furniture,ready to accommodate our friends or anyone who would like to visit this beautiful home! The olive press has been converted into a loft, with two bedrooms, separated with curtains from the rest of the space, a living-room, a kitchen and a bathroom. The house can accommodate 5 persons, in one double bed, and three single beds. We have tried to preserve the unique atmosphere of the old olive press, so inside the house you will find some old equipment, such as the mill and the press. ...You are very welcome in a house, which counts more than two centuries!

Apart from the olive press, the stable has also been renovated into a 4-persons apartment. Together the olive press and the stable can host up to 9 persons, ideal for a big family or a big company. You can refer to the listing titled 'Country Estate in Doukades (the stable)'. We may daily provide you, at an extra cost, with fresh cow’s milk, eggs, greenery etc. We hope you find it interesting and we wish you a very pleasant sojourn! The owners, Sofia and Alda Varthi Maid Service: Cleaning prior to your arrival and 3 hours of intermediate cleaning are included. Please inquire for more maid hours at an extra cost.More

We stayed here in June for 5 nights. We had a bit of difficulty finding it but Sofia was very patient and came to meet us closeby. The olive press is a lovely large space very cool and very well equipped with masses of sofas...More
