Our home

Our second home is in Dafni, a traditional small village above the famous St. George Bay and just a 5 minute drive away. The beach - 3 km of golden sand - is a haven for water sports enthusiasts.

The house was fully renovated in 2003, it sits in the middle of the beautiful, mature and nicely maintained gardens, full of shrubst, palm trees, cypresses, olive and citrus trees.

It is a comfortable family home with many Corfiot architectural characteristics. A covered terrace area next to the main entrance expands into the lounge area. An open fire place stands in the right corner and two steps higher is a fully fitted and equipped Italian kitchen. There are three bedrooms with built-in wardrobes and a bathroom and under the roof terrace is a separate en-suite bedroom with a shower room. The floors are of the old Corfiot bricks throughout. An external staircase leads to a fantastic roof terrace covered with pergola. The stunning views from here go all way to northern Corfu and the sea. This is an ideal place for evening drinks and dinners.

The property is fully furnished and equipped for 8 people. It also includes an alarm system, an automatic lawns sprinkling system, timers controlled lights in park and pool, double satellite receiver and high speed internet. The house, pool and garden are attended by a dedicated local team. A small compact SUV and motorbike can be at your disposal.

We are semi-retired (73 and 65 years old), Michael is an environmental scientist and I, Karin, am an Executive Search Consultant. Our 3 children are adults and live in Europe and USA. This is our first experience with home exchange and we have also never let our home to anyone else. We trust that this will be a good experience with people who will enjoy and look after our property.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The property of approx. 4000 sm² is situated on the outskirts of a small village in a rural setting and environment. A small 300 m asphalt road leads from the village to the property passing an old beautiful Greek church. The location is very quiet and secluded offering absolute privacy also in the pool area.

The is land of Corfu is a not so typical Greek island as it is green all around the year with 5 million olive trees from the middle ages. The influence is Venetian which can also be seen in the very attractive old town of Corfu which is 25 kms from our place.
