We are located in Kanakades, a small historical village on the island of Corfu, between the prosperous Ropa Valley and the hills of olive groves.

Strolling through the picturesque alleys of the village, one comes across many traditional scenes of Corfiot beauty, old stone houses and flowery courtyards, as well as historical ruins. Standing out the church of Saint Theodore, built in the early 14th century.

Due to its strategic location and fertile land, the village was an important settlement during the Venetian era in Corfu.

On the top of a steep cliff stands the old Venetian castle ‘Varonia’, which served as the feudal lord Marcello's headquarters and gathering place for the area’s entire agricultural production.

The view from the castle overlooking the surrounding valley is stunning and unique.

Hundreds of years later, however, Kanakades is now just a charming, quiet little village of merely a hundred residents.
