Villa Cinque Palme Greece, Corfu

The natural charm of this area was memorably depicted by Gerald Durrell, and the northeast coast of Corfu is still widely considered to be the most beautiful area of the island. Owned and cherished by a Greco-Italian family, the immaculate and striking Cinque Palme epitomises Mediterranean style and sophistication while keeping the unique spirit of Corfu. One of the pleasures of this exceptional property is its gorgeous mature garden of lush lawns, fruit trees, fragrant jasmine and rosemary and ancient Greek species such as myrtle, heliotrope and daphne and, of course, the five palm trees, which give it its name. The spacious interior is a very successful match of elegant antiques and modern furniture with a decorative accent on natural features: rattan, wood, mellow bricks and stone, cream linen and white walls. The villa and grounds have unobstructed views over the sea to the Greek mainland as well as Corfu town and a deep, shaded loggia with comfortable sofas makes the very best of this fine location. From the peace of Cinque Palme it is but a short drive to the mile long white pebble beach, clear sea and water sports at Barbati.

Position, view, serenity, privacy


Space, style, furnishings and interiors


Property enhancements


Proximity to beach, restaurant and shops
