We visited this resort previously and had such wonderful memories that we chose to return. Its an incredibly tranquil place with great scenery and you could easily just stay on resort and relax. I always try and write a balanced review but this trip was not as good as the original as we encountered a number of issues. A few...

Such a great find! Beautifully designed and equipped villas, perfect pool and restaurant all set in an almost secret place but with stunning views! This completely lived up to expectations! Well looked after by resort manager, yet allowing for privacy and family time. Even down to the detailed and highly accurate and helpful directions and perfect welcome pack- no need...

Absolutely spot on!!! Gaynor and her staff are first class. Location and scenery amazing what more could you want. My only regret is, I wish I'd found it many years ago. We all loved it and went on my sisters recommendation. Now she's is fussy!!! Total stress free busy days quiet evening with two young children.

Villa Ithica is located in the Rou Estate. It's an amazing villa for 2. We spent a week there and it was one of most beautiful settings I have even seen. The villa itself is a jewel, the decor is very stylish, the garden and swimming pool a great addition. The owner was great and made us feel very welcome....

We all fell in love with Rou. The views are stunningly beautiful. Gaynor the Estate Manager ensures you are extremely well looked after during your stay. We were slightly concerned about the road to Rou but it really wasn't too bad and it is well worth the journey to be greeted with the stunning views and scenery when you reach...

Cannot recommend this destination highly enough. There are many reviews on the high standard of accommodation - the villas are gorgeous and the layout is beautiful and allows for privacy and peace from others - but for us the added quality is the team that work so hard behind the scene to make the holiday such a relaxing and high...

A simply stunning moutain retreat. The views from your very own villa are breathtaking. We were a party of four people and rented a villa that sleeps eight. We like the extra room. Don't be put off by the drive up to the estate. To us Brits, a pothole on an "A" road can give us stress, so the first...

We have recently returned from two perfect weeks at Rou, staying in Lilium. After several years visiting the Greek Islands either with Thomson or independently, this was our first time travelling with Simpson and also staying in a self-catering villa/house and we are now converts, to both!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
