Despite many rumours to the contrary, and stories of practically give-away apartments in Athens, much of Corfu seems to be riding the storm and house prices have remained fairly stable, especially in coastal areas. However, once in a while we are asked to reduce the price on a property - usually for fairly specific reasons - ill-health or the new property tax which specifically targets multiple home-owners. Villa Athina is one such property. It was intended for the use of its present owners who live in a larger home and were hoping to downsize. Over the years their circumstances have changed and they no longer wish to complete the project, choosing to stay put in their existing house. Evropouli is a small village within easy reach of Corfu town in one direction and the Marina at Gouvia in the other. The house has long distance country views inland and easy car access just off the road through the village. Now for sale at well below cost, this large property is a bargain indeed.
