Corfu and the other Ionian islands were occupied by the British from 1817 and in 1864 they were ceded back to Greece.
Emporos Mansion was built in 1870 for a wealthy merchant and his family. It is located in the peaceful hamlet of Kefalomantouko, which is about a kilometre inland from the port of Corfu and just a 5 minute drive from the beautiful Old Town.
In 2018 the villa was completely renovated and refurbished. The original, classical style of the property has been retained and modern touches added to ensure a high standard of contemporary comfort. All rooms are spacious and high-ceilinged.
Two acres of private grounds surround the mansion and provide many areas to relax in sun or shade. Terraces surrounding the swimming pool are grassed and one has a children's playground.
All rooms look out across the sea to the mountains of the Greek mainland and Albania.
The prices include the full time services of a chef (provisions to be paid for). The chef has a separate kitchen in an adjacent building.
The Mansion’s minibus is available (plus driver) as a complimentary shuttle service to Corfu Old Town.
Emporos Mansion will provide an unusual and comfortable retreat for those wanting to be close to the many good restaurants of Corfu Town and nearby beaches.
