  • Description

    Description

    The farm is next to a lagoon and is in the south of Corfu. It is surrounded by beautiful scenery and a peaceful environment, which is a protected site of natural heritage (NATURA 2000). You may wonder around the 70 acres of our estate in the olive groves (about 2000 trees) and vegetable gardens (about 1000 sqm ). We have 1 Greek horse, 1 donkey, a few sheep, chickens, ducks, 2 pigs and a few dogs and cats.
    In the farm we cultivate organic olives, season vegetables, therapeutic herbs and we are beekeepers. We run 2 tourist accommodations (farm houses) and the organic restaurant.
    We are a five person family, that the most of the year we are all living here.
