The Merchant's House, in the Heritage Protected Village of Old Perithia, offers a unique glimpse of the island as it was in times gone by. This privately owned Airbnb thoughtfully combines the luxuries of a four star accommodation with the coziness, ease and comfort of a 'home away from home'. This, the oldest village on the island, used to be a hideaway from pirate attacks, a place where you could see, but not be seen from the sea. Old Perithia at 408m, nestles below Mount Pantokrator, the highest point on Corfu, and is an excellent vantage point for walking.

I have spent my life travelling the world, and I can honestly say that I have never enjoyed myself so much as I have during this week at The Merchant's House. From the moment that my wife and I were greeted on our arrival by Mark until we said goodbye, with great sadness, to

If you want a calming Corfu experience, look no further than The Merchant's House in the unique and tranquil village of Old Peritihia. Hidden away in the hills, above what can be chaotic Corfu, it calls itself a Boutique B&B but this moniker doesn't do justice to the incredible

Hi Sarah, Apologies for the delay... just spotted your Q as it dropped into spam for some peculiar reason. We're open on on & off and yes it is for sale - ideally as a B&B still but depends on the buyer. Thanks
