This stunning five-bedroom house on two levels has recently been completed by its English owners and offers breathtaking panoramic views across the Ionian straits towards the mountains of Albania. Plumbago sits on the edge of The Rou Estate, a restored 200-year-old stone village, and is just a 15-minute drive to the delightful pebble bays, tavernas and villages of north east Corfu.

The house embraces elegance with beautiful stylish interiors, local stonework and high ceilings. Spacious terraces on different levels offer wonderful opportunities for relaxation and outside dining, all with magnificent panoramic views. The uniquely-designed infinity pool boasts internal seating curved around ancient olive trees.

There is large infinity pool, small spa and gym on The Rou Estate, reached by a short stroll through wisteria walkways and landscaped flower and herb gardens.

For those not wishing to leave Plumbago’s tranquil atmosphere, dining options are available from The Rou Estate's Garden Terrace.

Tom (aged 10) – August 2018

What a place! First of all, the views are like nothing else I have ever seen. The pool was great and we all had a fantastic time.
Charles (aged 14) – August 2018

We really enjoyed our one week in Villa Plumbago. Stupendous views, relaxing by the pool, supper on the terrace and the girls feeding the cats! Lovely estate and everyone was very helpful.
Peter, Julie, Bo, Ella & Ruby – August 2018

We chose plumbago as a perfect location to renew our wedding vows on our 40th anniversary. It certainly met our expectations.
Mrs Pursell – August 2017

 

Thank you. We have had a great week in a great place. Very good
Steve & Janet – June 2017

Another fantastic week in paradise for our grateful clan of 11. All three generations had a magical time, the sun shone constantly, Gaynor & her team did a superb job, the tavernas were as tempting as ever and we really, really cannot wait to do it all over again! Huge thanks
The Majendie Clan – May 2017

Thank you for an amazing seven days with you in this wonderful villa. We loved the pool, the view and some fantastic trips on the boat and to tavernas; great food. Look forward to returning soon. Thank you to Gaynor and her team.
Catherine – August 2016 

We enjoyed a very relaxing stay at beautiful Plumbago on the Rou Estate. Whilst very quiet and off the beaten track it was easy to access the local restaurants and activities such as day trips in motor boats, diving at Apollo sub diving and mountain biking in the area. Our children made good use of the communal pool although we had our own large infinity pool with amazing views. The whole Rou estate is beautiful and the on site small taverna and excellent spa made the week very relaxing. The addition of our local chef (Spiros) made for a perfect week.

Mrs Notley – July 2016

Our choice of Greek properties is as diverse as the islands themselves, ranging from simple seaside charm to genuine luxury and style. Much of our portfolio is privately owned, and price alone is therefore not a universal guide. We contract all our accommodation in person, and each property has its individual appeal. To help you make the right choice based on your own priorities, we have devised a simple grading guide to be considered in conjunction with each individual property description, awarding up to a maximum of five stars for the below categories.
