Greek Isle of Corfu

The Romans adored Corfu, and built summer villas there. Eventually Corfu spent 400 years under Roman rule, then it was the turn of the French and Russians, and finally, Corfu became a British Protectorate from 1814 until 1864, when it reverted back to the newly established Greek nation.

The Rou Estate is an exclusive, privately owned estate in a magnificent location high above the northeast coastline of Corfu. The 200-year old village, with a village square lined with plumbago, agapanthus and numerous connecting steps, is nestled within sheltering hills in a sun-drenched position with breathtaking views, about 10/15 minutes drive from the sea.

Thyme House (No. 10)

The thirteen homes that compose the Rou Estate, most of them original village houses are completely renovated to luxury standards and set within a wildflower garden. Enjoy your trip hh
