Completed in 1993, we asked the same architect who built the Irene to design the Mantis – we wanted to recreate the look of the older, traditional Corfu again – but with a twist. This two storey house with its pale stucco and blonde roof tiles, handmade stone terracing and creeping vine-strewn veranda gives the impression of a family home of a time gone by.

Inside, however, there is a very contemporary use of space and Mediterranean light. A 5 meter high vaulted wooden ceiling and the many windows fill the living area with Ionian sun, set off with flooring throughout of light grey Italian ceramic tiles, creating an atmosphere of calm, whilst the double glazing ensures that temperatures remain comfortable.

The L-shaped kitchen is fully equipped with double sink, family sized fridge. 4-ring cooking hob and combi microwave/conventional oven. Two spacious double (twin) bedrooms lead off the vestibule, as does the downstairs bathroom (shower). Upstairs there is a small study area, with about 100 books you are welcome to read and, through this, the master bedroom.
What Our Visitors Said
The villa was great – big enough for us all not to be tripping over each other. We loved the two patio areas and the kitchen was well equipped and laid out. We have had a super holiday at Villa Mantis, the village is just the right size, has the right amenities and plenty of good food. Thank you both from all of us.
The Fairhead Party
Nestling under the wooden ceiling, this large loft room has an original brass double bed hung with a mosquito-netting canopy and is both charming and romantic. The ensuite bathroom ensures total privacy for the lucky guests who have this room. The large wardrobes in each of the bedrooms provide plenty of space, however much luggage you bring. We have provided fans for when the temperatures soar.

As is Irene, furnishings are all personally chosen as are the many contemporary paintings, most of which are by friends of the family. The French windows lead from the sitting room onto the terrace – delightful sitting for a morning coffee or evening drink overlooking the garden. On the side of the house lies the large dining terrace – with its weathered brick columns supporting vine covered rafters and large, built-in barbecue, this is the place to dine “al fresco.” A second outdoor fridge keeps your wine, beer and watermelon chilled to perfection.
Newly created and sympathetically designed to fit in with our existing garden, we now offer our guests a delightful, cooling and invigorating private pool and hydro-spa. Over 7.5 cubic metres of prettily designed pool, with an integral seat within, the size and dimension of the pool is perfect for a family and safe for those with young (supervised) children. In addition to providing a cooling plunge, we have also incorporated a system of underwater jets and cascades which can be turned on as and when required and which will provide a burst of stimulating but relaxing hydrotherapy massage. The pool is backed with a splendid and elegant wall of unpolished antique Egyptian marble, providing a handsome backdrop to the spa and ensuring total privacy for swimmers from the next door garden. The semi-raised design of the pool walls surrounds guests with flowers and butterflies.
