Press Release: For immediate release

Boutique and Unique: The Merchant’s House B&B is now open in Old Perithia, Corfu’s Oldest Village, a protected heritage site

22.08.2012 — Within Corfu’s historic village of Old Perithia, The Merchant’s House (circa 1650), is a privately owned and managed four star boutique B&B designed and restored by Mark Hendriksen and Saskia Bosch, offering suites and breakfast with a difference.

The Merchant’s House captures the history of Corfu within six individual, luxury suites, each with their own separate entrance, hand-made furniture, lavish furnishings, antiques and paintings, comfy beds, power showers, BeeKind™ toiletries, Nespresso machines and all the techy stuff that’s required.

A touch of luxury combined with a homely charm, set in what is undoubtedly the most peaceful spot on the island. This highly acclaimed restoration, the first of its kind on Corfu, is one of the reasons it has become the most photographed house on the island. Though the village is buzzing during the day, at night it falls silent with only the gentle hum of the tavernas accompanied by a melody of hooting owls.

Breakfast is served at the adjoining taverna Ognistra, and for lunch or dinner there are five traditional tavernas all within two minutes walk of The Merchant’s House.

Some of the island’s most stunning beaches are within 15-25 minutes drive from the village. Alternatively, leave the hustle and bustle of the coast behind and head up the mountain in search of the cool, air-conditioned suites, and enjoy a drink on the private garden terrace before wandering off through the cobbled streets to dinner.

Suites start from 130 per night, including breakfast.
