Yes the grounds are run down and it is difficult to find the entrance using google maps but it is worth visiting. The grounds were free to enter when we went and make for an interesting wander in lovely woodland where you can stumble across ancient Doric Temple and other ruins! There is a small charge , 4 Euros, to enter the Palace which is well kept as a museum with basic displays and you can imagine how beautiful it was in the past. To help find the place search for The Early Christian Basillica of Paleopolis, the red and cream entrance is opposite this in the trees on Feakon Street. There is no vehicular access into the grounds. We parked on the roadside further up Feakon St.

This is definitely worth a visit to see the history of what was once a beautiful building in acres of ground. It has disappointingly not been given enough care and the grounds are very over grown but you can find the old church and some outbuildings . The only mention of Prince Phillip is on the entrance outside but i guess he did have to leave there at 2 years because of the invasion in the war. The museum as it is now is only 4E to enter and it is worth reading up on the history of the island displayed. Many old photos of Corfu as it was are displayed

This is a venue which to review is totally based on
one’s expectation level. Prince Philip, the Duke of
Edinburgh, was born in this house. Thus, many British tourists visit, only to be disappointed, because the villa itself has “seen better days”, and other than the small sign at the entrance,
there are no other references to the Prince. The
interior of the house is not a necessity to visit.
There are enormous grounds one may traverse,
free of charge ( there is a fee to enter the home ).
It’s a 30 minute walk from Corfu town ( 2.6 kms.),
right along the shoreline. There really isn’t much
to see here, so I believe most will be disappointed. I had read all the reviews, so I knew
what to expect. It’s a fine excursion if you don’t
make it in the heat of the day, and again, it’s all
about the expectations.

We didn't see many road signs, but map app got us there - close enough to park & walk around the walls to find the main gate!
The estate / gardens are large and lovely to wander around - sun, shade, ruins, sea views and a little beach.
The palace is now a museum and has an interesting historic photography exhibition, as well as furnished rooms and other displays.
Entry only €3 / 4 each. Clean toilets in the palace building.
No cafe which was a shame - we'd certainly have bought a cool drink and snack.

Interesting due to it being the summer palace of the old Greek Royal family and the birthplace of Prince Philip of the British Royal family. An easy walk from Spianada (approx 25 minutes) weather permitting.
It’s a surprisingly modest building given its history and you can access it at times during the year but it was closed when we visited. Nice gardens to wander round and there are Greek ruins in the grounds. Unfortunately we were there during an explosion of mosquitoes and left quickly but we were told this is particular to the early autumn months.
Lovely views of the coast of neighbouring Albania.

It was rainy afternoon, in September 2021, when we visited the Palace. Rain just started after our entrance - so we had enough time for detail visit of whole exhibition there. Exhibition includes thematic groups of photographs, some art styles in XIX centaury, some very old archeological artifacts from ancient Greeks period and old Roman Empery, ...

on a road trip visiting the sites, Mon Repo rated lowest among the rest. It is a lovely park in disrepair. We were told after the visit that the flora is remarkable by botanical standards as royal visitors brought various samples over the years but that is something one has to guess or be told. Nonetheless, it is a lovely park with glorious views over the see. The palace is interesting on the outside but bare on the inside. If you can fit it in your schedule, do it, if not, don t worry about it

After a confusing struggle with conflicting information at other sites, guidebooks, and even it’s own website, we made the dash here before the supposed closing time of 330 pm. A non attended gate booth indicated it was open until 9pm. Tour groups still arriving as we left. The gardens are really overgrown and there is little signage to direct one to the ruins and archaeological sites on the estate. The house is lovely and once surely was a beautiful spot but it looks pretty tired. Had been looking forward to this but frankly, a bit disappointed.

Actually I am little surprised bad opinions about this place. In my opinion it is hidden gym of Corfu. We made there 2 hours walk seeing old ancient Greek temple ruins, abandoned church, some other buildings, nice beach and beautiful views and nature. It is really worth to wander around .
