In the past, the inhabitants of Corfu built their villages high up in the hills to escape the all too frequent raids by the pirates that patrolled the Mediterranean. Today, the Rou Estate has been designed to provide another kind of refuge – a place for guests to restore and revive their body and mind.

The houses have been equipped to the highest standards to provide for your every comfort and need. The Estate Manager is also on call to advise on food deliveries such as local delicacies from the local taverna, bakery, butcher and supermarket; to hire a chef or recommend local tavernas; to book a spa treatment, personal trainer, walking guide or hire a boat or car; and can advise on local places of interest and trips further afield.

Guests at the Rou Estate have come to enjoy the seclusion, gardens and comfort of the Estate and the personal unobtrusive service offered by the Estate staff. The Rou Estate has been voted No 1 Best Mountain Escape in Greece (Harpers Bazaar); No 5 Top Greek Retreats (Harpers Bazaar); and No 36 Top 100 Places to Stay in the World (Times UK).
