VILLA 1870
Villa 1870 Corfu is a 3-floor mansion built in the late 19th century, which belonged to a wealthy family of that time which did business in trade, shipping etc. Designed by an English architect in European style, surrounded by rich vegetation, it follows the history of Corfu. In 2018, it was refurbished with respect for its history and original architecture, by introducing modern technology so that guests can enjoy all modern-day amenities, and it became a heaven on earth. Endowed from the beginning with the special Corfiot architectural elements, the arches, the arched windows, the interior wooden staircase, the heavy, original 19th century wooden door and with its decoration which reminds of an older time, with the classic furniture and rooms in a romantic style, the mansion seems to long for the past and it takes guests to older times. The view from all rooms of the house is the clear blue waters of the Ionian Sea.
The gardens of the house cover an area of two acres. Trees, flowers and rare plants make up a heavenly setting and surround the house and the pool, offering the privacy needed, without, however, blocking the view. The gardens, at different levels, offer the guests the opportunity to relax and enjoy different types of activities. The swimming pool, surrounded by sun loungers and comfortable armchairs, is heated, so that guests can enjoy swimming throughout the year. It is kids-friendly; it has salt water and a counter-current system, which makes it suitable for exercising. Near the pool,there is a barbecue, with a 4-metre dining table for 10 peopleand next to it there are two 6-metre marble buffet benches. Guests can start their day by enjoying the magnificent view,having a traditional breakfast and meals made from local products, while they are protected from the sun.
