Thresher's House : Stone Built in a Private Estate with Great Views and Privacy

Family-friendly villa in Corfu
This traditional stone-built property benefits from awe-inspiring vistas and wonderful secluded grounds; an ideal hideaway for those seeking a slower, more peaceful pace.

Well appointed above the hamlet of Porta and surrounded by greenery, the charm of the villa inside is the attention to detail throughout, with antiques and beamed ceilings adding unique character to the ambience. There is a large veranda at the front of the house. This spot is perfect for lunches in the shade, with a simple table and chairs and several pots of flowers and herbs.
A few steps down, the infinity pool is a magnificent turquoise colour.
With plenty of room to spread out, little terraces and patios operate on different levels within the grounds. Clearly delineated with stones is the original ‘thresher’s floor’ where horses or donkeys walking in a continuous circle would separate the grain from the chaff by crushing it on the hard surface.
Ideal for breakfast, the main balcony that runs along the living area looks out to a glorious panorama of the Albanian mountains and the verdant hillsides that drop down to the Ionian Sea.
Double French windows in the living area give light and an air of spaciousness to the interior. Comfy sofas cluster around the fireplace, and an elegant dining area is enhanced with dainty lace curtains filtering in the sunshine.
A twin bedroom, decorated with pretty floral curtains and bedcovers, also has a fireplace.
Another twin and a double bedroom (master bedroom) share the balcony that runs along the main area of the house, in prime position to enjoy the stunning sunrise.
Air-conditioned accommodation at this villa offers private pools and fireplaces. Rooms open to patios. Kitchens offer fridges, hobs, microwaves and separate dining areas. Bathrooms include a combined bath/shower unit and hairdryers.

Televisions come with DVD players. Business-friendly amenities include safes and telephones. Additionally, rooms include coffee/tea makers and an iron/ironing board. Housekeeping is provided on request.

A nature lover's paradise
Thresher's house is a wonderful getaway from the stresses of the world, especially so in the midst of a global pandemic! Myself, my wife and four friends had a excellent week enjoying the house and it's environs immensely. The house is very well equipped with three spacious bedrooms (two en-suite), very large kitchen./ lounge with high ceilings and numerous outdoor eating spots (at least 5!). The satellite internet works well - several of our group had to work remotely but there was no great issue - just a slight lag due to the satellite connection. The views from the house are wide and magnificent, with clear view over to Albania. The garden is lush and there are walnut trees, pomegranates, as well as grapes which you are free to enjoy. There are many good walking routes around the house with the long distance 220km Corfu Trail passes through. You can walk to Mount Pantokrator (highest peak in Corfu at 910m) from here, as well as the charming Old Perithia (around 2 hours away). The weather was not great the week we were there and a storm affected the power and water to the house for one day but Aristidis worked hard to restore it and kept us well informed throughout. The house is 500m up and the roads are pretty windy and narrow, this might not be for everyone but I found them fun! There's nothing around and you will need a car but Kassiopi is only 15 mins away with many shops and restaurants. There are plenty of nice beaches nearby too. All in all thoroughly recommended and we'd love to return sometime for another relaxing holiday.

Beautiful location
A gorgeous place to chill out and be calm away from the world.

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful, but remote
Beautiful property with loads of character, owner very helpful with a some minor problems. A little remote, with the local tavern being shut, but that’s just my personal preference. Would still highly recommend all the same.

Amazing Villa in the Hills of Corfu
Thresher’s House was even better than the beautiful pictures on line that originally drew us to rent it. A spacious house built out of local stone with an infinity pool and views of the mountains rolling down to Ionian Sea and beyond to the mysterious Albania. We spent most of our time in the pool and the terraces as the weather was warm and dry and the Grecian Blue sky irresistible. We to many day trips and especially enjoyed the Old Town of Corfu, taking a private boat tour of the cliffs and grottoes on the west side of the island, but most of all we enjoyed being at the house swimming and reading and talking. Other then one game in the US Open finals we never turned on the TV. The house is fully equipped for making meals and any thing you might need and the host, Aristidis, was available by text and phone to help with any questions about the house and the Island. We loved Thresher’s House and hope to return soon.

5/5 Excellent

Bit of a drive but well worth it!
Secluded in the hillside with amazing views of the sun & sea. Lovely pool, lots of privacy & a great traditional feel to the villa. The drive up from the main road around the island is around 15-20mins but it's worth it. The host offered excellent communication & the villa made for a perfect peaceful holiday.
