In a quiet corner of the village, a flight of old stone steps leads up to a wrought-iron gate that gives no hint of the oasis of lawns and trees that lies beyond it.
The long windows of Tougiros House open on to these lawns - a marvellous setting for children to play imaginative games.
Breakfast in the pretty courtyard makes the perfect start to the day and there is a wonderful covered dining area in a corner of the building, equally suitable for an informal family meal or a romantic candle-lit dinner.
The house is light and spacious, with high vaulted ceilings and tiled floors.The bedrooms have a nostalgic feel, with very romantic furnishings, but the bathrooms and kitchens belong entirely to our own times.
Supplementary accommodation is available in the cottage across the courtyard. The garden is also overlooked by the old ‘Original Wing’ of the house and guests are very welcome to make use of the elegant ‘salon’ and formal dining room, both filled with paintings and objects from the collection of the owners. Tougiros House is both quiet and private, and has an atmosphere that is quite unique.
The gorgeous view through the garden gate, of Corfu’s lyrically beautiful hills and valleys, will surely tempt you to explore this lovely region. The housekeeper, is a friendly presence, and apart from the special arrangement for the first night, she is always willing to cook a meal for a reasonable fee.
