Shell House

12 guests · 6 bedrooms · 6.5 baths
Set on a leafy Corfu hillcrest, this elegant and sophisticated villa combines old world charm with rich and warm furnishings. From the sprawling garden terrace, look down on a sheltered inlet where a scattering of yachts rest at anchor. Bright, cream-colored interiors, pleasing furnishings, and antique touches perfect the home, with tranquil beaches, boat trips and welcoming tavernas nearby. 
Breakfast in the group dining room at Shell House is always a pleasant experience, as guests gather around the long table as morning sunshine creeps inside. The calm, vegetation-wreathed terrace offers numerous carved seats, ideal for quiet reading or flavorsome glass of Greek iced coffee. Prepare for the day’s outings in the sitting room, complete with impressive fireplace and soft couches, before departing through the home’s grand doorway. After an active day taking in this storied coastline, slip into the home’s pool for a refreshing swim, or visit the sauna as the smell of delicious cooking circulates throughout the villa.
Shell House provides quick access to an exceptional range of attractions, including several tranquil pebble beaches with crystal clear water. Set off on a sun-drenched day cruise on a local yacht through the waters of the island’s channel, or wind your way through impressive mountain valleys to the ancient monastery at Pankrator, which offers exceptional views as far as the Albanian coastline. Visit local tavernas for distinctly characterful Corfu dishes, or drop by the island’s friendly wineries to discover flavors from across the region.
