The transformation of a ruined hamlet in the foothills of Mount Pantokrator into 14 stunning and imaginatively equipped houses which now comprise the Rou Estate was the vision of a British architect, Dominic Skinner, and his Dutch wife, Claire. The Rou Estate is a private hillside village of 14 stone houses with a 28 meter shared infinity swimming pool, a private gym, Spa and eight acres of landscaped gardens. Nestled in the hills overlooking the beautiful north east coast of Corfu and flanked by majestic Mount Pantokrator, the Estate enjoys some of the most breathtaking views on the island.
