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.

The Rou Estate is quite unique - an oasis of calm and stunning views with your own plunge pool or pool and access to a stunning shared pool. An on site restaurant (only open alternate evenings) is a helpful addition for those who do not want to prepare their own meals or make

We stayed at Cyclamen where our second eldest slept in the outhouse type building where she was extremely happy apart from a visit from a scorpion at night that soon disappeared to her relief! The rooms were lovely and our little plunge pool was nice to relax by privately or it

I'm interested in booking a Maizonette on the Rou estate. Please can you confirm that all of the on-site facilities would be available to us.

Hi Judith, Thanks for your question. The Rou has a beautiful restaurant onsite called The Garden Terrace, serving from 3pm until late, with last food orders at 9pm. Alternatively, the closest restaurant outside of The Rou is a 10 minute drive away. Beyond this you can drive down towards the coast (20 minute drive) where there is a large selection of restaurants in the coastal towns. Please feel free to contact our sales consultants who will be able to provide more information. I hope this information is of assistance.
