Description

Sokraki is one of the prettiest and most traditional of Corfu's mountain villages, retaining a very special atmosphere. This house was built in 1835, and still has a great deal of its original character and features. Entering through the old-fashioned gateway into the courtyard, the front door leads into an entrance area and up a couple of steps to the living room/kitchen with original open fireplace. A shower room is tucked away under the stairs, with the unusual feature of an old bread oven inside it!

Wooden stairs lead to the bedroom which is large and airy with a small balcony to the front overlooking the courtyard. Here the floor is wooden, and the high ceiling has exposed beams.

All the furniture and fittings are included in the sale, and heating for the colder months is provided by the open fire and two electric heaters. Fully renovated in 1997, this is a great little house for holidays or those seeking the quiet life in a tranquil village setting.
