Property Of The Day

There are lots of unsold properties in Corfu, but this does not necessarily mean the same as it would do in Britain - that there is something wrong with the house. Neither does it necessarily mean that the vendors will be prepared to accept a lower price if one is offered. Quite often the opposite is true, and sellers contact us to put up the price of their property in line with the increase in the cost of living.

Despite this, there are certain houses/plots of land that we all think should have sold long ago, either because they are bargains, or because they are gorgeous! We thought we could pick some of these out from our lists and share them with you on the blog, maybe not every day, but from time to time.

Here is the first: It is a classic small manor house with a courtyard at the front, outbuildings awaiting conversion and a garden with a lemon tree at the back. Situated in a village in the north west of Corfu, just a short drive to several beaches, it has off-road parking, and shops and buses within walking distance. Price: 295,000 euros, and worth every cent!
