    Harmony Estate

    This exceptional property showcases the very best of outstanding Ionian architecture, its gorgeous peach colour perfectly capturing the remarkable island sunset. Sitting on a private estate, the manor has been constructed to the highest standards and enjoys an elevated position 8 km northeast of Corfu town.


    "Harmony" is surrounded by beautiful landscaped gardens filled with olive trees and colourful flowers. The property boasts a large swimming pool with ample terracing perfect for sunbathing and entertaining, along with changing rooms, a floodlit tennis court, BBQ, children’s play area and mature vegetable garden. The estate enjoys 360 degree view across the sea towards Gouvia Marina and mainland Greece, and also includes extra parking space.


    The manor welcomes visitors through a grand covered portico, leading to an interior filled with bright, airy spaces. Panelled ceilings lend an aristocratic atmosphere to the house, which is fully air conditioned but also provides large fireplaces perfect for the chiller winter months.


    A self-contained apartment would be perfect as either guest or staff accommodation, ensuring maximum privacy for all. Planning permission exists to construct an additional guesthouse.

    About The Area

    Sitting in the most northwesterly corner of Greece, Corfu is an elegant and cosmopolitan island, wearing the mantle of its colourful Venetian history with style. ‘Somewhere between Calabria and Corfu the blue really begins...you are aware of a change in the heart of things: aware of the horizon beginning to stain at the rim of the world: aware of islands coming out of the darkness to meet you’. So begins Lawrence Durrell’s 1945 ode to Corfu, Prospero’s Cell. Even today, visitors to the island often arrive by sea, approaching from Italy in the west, of the Greek mainland in the east. Emerging in the early morning sunshine, the pastel-hued houses above Corfu Town’s old port are a jumble of slim tiers with narrow passages running between them, made brilliant with washing hung out to dry from every balcony like festive bunting. The tall Venetian mansions display ancient coats of coloured paint, blurred by successive winters and giving visitors to the town the feeling of stepping into a watercolour painting. The town is centred on a wide tree-lined esplanade called the Spianada, whose French arcades echo the Rue de Rivoli. A drop of Britishness is to be found on the noble sweep of this square, which is transformed into a cricket pitch throughout the summer - the world’s only working sports field within a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Meanwhile, the Corfiot countryside boasts an elegiac greenery, unrivalled across Greece and contrasting remarkably with the solemn barrenness of the Aegean. Bathed in brilliant white sunlight throughout the summer months, the winter rains ensure a sublime frondescence across the island, with the inland valleys thickly carpeted with wild flowers, studded with gnarled olive trees and dense groves of stiffly swaying cypresses. The sophisticated north-east is known as Kensington-on- Sea, and is the site of the Rothschild family’s imposing summer villa. It is here that the luxury villa lifestyle comes into its own, with the hillsides sprinkled with secluded, high-end properties boasting private infinity pools and awe-inspiring sea views, with the snowcapped Albanian-Epirote mountains rising mysteriously in the east.
