Lavandula

PLEASE NOTE THAT PRICES FOR LAVANDULA INCLUDE FLIGHTS AND CAR HIRE. “The views, service and seclusion make [The Rou Estate] Corfu’s top retreat” Telegraph 2016 Lavandula stands in the perfect location at the top end of the estate where guests get the best of the stunning views Rou has to offer. Newly built when the village was restored, its style remains sensitively in keeping with the other properties, incorporating materials and features found in traditional Corfiot houses. With three bedrooms sleeping up to 6 guests, the views from Lavandula, both of hillsides and sea, induce an almost immediate restfulness as do its calm, neutral furnishings, both modern and antique. Guests at Lavandula also have access to Rou’s beautiful, large shared infinity pool, the Granary spa and the Estates 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.
