Laurus

PLEASE NOTE THAT PRICES FOR LAURUS INCLUDE FLIGHTS AND CAR HIRE. “The views, service and seclusion make [The Rou Estate] Corfu’s top retreat” Telegraph 2016 Laurus is the central house of three adjoining properties along the pretty path under wisteria-covered arches that forms the central walkway in Rou. With two bedrooms sleeping up to 4 guests, the house is immaculately decorated and furnished, its pale colours and natural textures creating a light and restful feel with the eye drawn to the beauty of the view of Rou’s terracotta roof tiles and the sea beyond. Guests at Laurus also have access to the Estate’s stunning shared infinity pool, Granary Spa and the Rou restaurant. The acclaimed Rou Estate in North East Corfu is a unique heritage site. Built over 200 years ago the village, consisting of 16 houses plus outbuildings, was abandoned before being brought back to life by Dominic and Claire Skinner in 2005. Exquisite and individually rendered Corfiot houses with contemporary finishes make this hill-side sanctuary, with panoramic views of the Ionian Sea and the distant Albanian mountains, the perfect place for those looking to escape and relax. “Voted number 36 in The Top 100 Places to Stay in the World” The Times 2016.
