“The village ‘found’ us, such a gem needs the full support of the local authorities.”
THE MERCHANT’S HOUSE
Mark Hendriksen & Saskia Bosch, Owners
On a hillside of Pantokratoras, The Merchant’s House Boutique B&B is the realization of a bold idea that literally and figuratively changed the landscape of Old Perithia. This couple of Londoners invested, in 2009, on the wild beauty of the abandoned village, renovated a complex of stone houses dating back to the Venetian occupation, and created an exemplary guesthouse. Their interest and perseverance paid off; old and new proprietors follow their example by giving life to a remarkable settlement.

“Nevertheless, since 2010 a change has occurred. Sitting at the neat flowery yards of the few remaining tavernas, Corfiots and foreigners alike, enchanted by the aura from the village’s past, are listening carefully to its historic whispers, while and Englishman with his Dutch wife restored three houses and established an exemplary B&B, thus instigating others to join them in genuine escape.’
