16 kilometres north of Corfu Town and just 4 kilometres inland from Ipsos on the north east coastline, lies the village of Ano Korakiana. Surrounding the village is a dramatic and natural, undulating landscape in the foothills of Mount Pantokrator.
Horiatiko is just over 1 kilometre away from the village and offers a private, rural escape from the outside world.
Within the same, large grounds are two other villas, one being Country House. Each has good privacy.
Spacious, modern and unfussy interiors open out to shaded dining terraces, a pool looking out across surrounding valleys and grass lawns bordered by olive trees, 8 different species of fruit trees and herbs sheltered by rosemary hedges.
The views take in Mount Pantokrator, forested hillsides almost hiding the village of Korakiana and an immediate architectural display of oak, olive, cypress and pine trees. Beyond Korakiana, also hiding on forested hillsides, are the ancient villages of Skripero, Doukades and Agios Markos. Time slows in this part of Corfu.
Horiatiko will appeal to those looking to be undisturbed and to be a short distance away from the many resorts of the north east coast.
