Well, we read and read about the Rou Estate before booking and just before we travelled as other reviews had been posted. Alens review on 27th Sept in particular left us slightly concerned about the road to the Rou since my Mum is a nervous wreck driving generally let alone on mountain roads. We were a group of 3 families,... More

Having stayed in "Campanula" for one week in October, we cannot wait to return for another stay, this house is a credit to its designer and to the owner. It is wonderfully furnished and containes all you need for a "home from home" holiday. It is so comfortable. We were delighted with the huge private garden and outside sitting/eating/entertaining areas,... More

I will try to be totally fair and objective in this review or The Rou Estate. A great deal of thought, work and money has gone in to creating The Rou, it is however not to everyone’s taste (what holiday destination is?). It has much to commend it and several negative points, depending upon your point of view. I’ll deal... More

We were pleased to read that this reviewer enjoyed and appreciated many aspects of their stay at The Rou Estate in Corfu. This collection of houses offers our guests the opportunity to stay in a remote hillside hamlet, while having access to the popular coastline of north east Corfu. We are sorry to learn that the reviewer found the drive... More

We enjoyed a fabulous two week holiday at the Rou Estate in mid-July with our two children aged 7 and 5. Our villa was spacious and extremely well appointed - it clearly had been furnished and equipped by someone who cared about their property, rather than just ticking the boxes for a holiday let, as we've seen elsewhere. For us,... More

Not one to normally wax lyrical about places I’ve visited or stayed in unless they truly deserve it. In this case the Rou Estate deserves it. Beautifully restored ‘village’ of properties tumbling down the hillside of this peaceful north east corner of Corfu. Stunning infinity pool and a great restaurant on site for drinks, lunch or dinner if you don’t... More

We stayed at the Acanthus Villa and it was everything that the Simpson Information says it would be. It has the benefits of a hotel with the freedom of a Villa. With a change of bedding and towels mid week , which was a lovely touch and a house keeper to empty the bins and even the dishwasher!! The Rou... More

A beautiful spot with unparalleled views from north-east Corfu to Albania and Mainland Greece. This development, which has been carved from the remains of a several hundred year old village, is picture perfect. The layout means you might go the whole week without seeing anyone. It is discreet, quiet, tranquil and the cottages are really lovely. Recommend for couples, families... More

A great base to explore the North East of Corfu, while coming home to a very relaxing and well-appointed villa. It's a 15 minute drive up from the beach, but through very pleasant olive groves and you are rewarded with the most amazing views from the villas and from the infinity pool. We visited a different beach every day and... More

The views are stunning. The estate is very private and is actually a small collection of luxury villas arranged on a hillside so that each one has complete privacy. This is a very tranquil place and a perfect place for complete relaxation. The Estate is not far from either the airport, local shops or the beach. We would definitely go... More
