4* Boutique hotel in old Perithia, North East Corfu.
The island of Corfu has continuously been attracting visitors, investors and buyers to it’s lush green landscape, beautiful beaches, old villages and the gentle pace of life. One such village, Old Perithia, located in the popular north east, is both Heritage Protected and in a Designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
This charming mountain village, with views to the sea and many of the finest beaches just 8 km away, is the best kept example of the Venetian architectural origins of the island. With 130 houses, 8 churches, 5 Greek Tavernas and the highly acclaimed Merchant’s House Hotel / B&B, it’s considered as a special place to visit by locals and visitors alike.
Back in 2010 the B&B became one of the islands most impressive renovations when the current owners restored three ruins (dating back to circa 1650) using local materials and craftsmen, whilst being supported and praised by the archaeological dept. of Corfu. Coupled with this unique restoration, the owners started to bring the village back to life as can now be seen today.
This exceptional property is currently operating as six B&B Suites, and has an extensive list of accolades and reviews. For any prospective buyer it is a ‘turn key’ business with a proven track record, top reviews and an excellent client list.
The property could alternatively be converted into individual apartments (with plumbing and wiring already in place), as a family home, or a combination of any of the above. All licenses for operating as a B&B are included with the property, as well as a license to serve breakfast, light lunches and drinks and to sell small gifts, books & publications.
Each suite is extremely well appointed and has a double bedroom, sitting room and good sized bathroom.
No expense has been spared in the restorations, there are Daikin air conditioning units in all of the suites as well as a Buderus central heating and a water recycling system. All of the furniture, beds, and the wrought iron works in the property, both internal and external, are hand made by local craftsmen.
Every Suite has its own private entrance and access to an attractively planted terraced garden, paved with local stone and laid with lawn.
The reputation of The Merchant’s House has gained it an iconic status and made it, and the village if Old Perithia, one of the island’s most famous and exciting locations as it comes back to life with further future potential and interest.
