Dating back to the 19th Century and only 8km from Corfu town, this beautiful estate with the Velianiti family mansion at the heart of a 20 hectare property, complete with an Olive Press (Loutrouvio) and Stables, was very lovingly refurbished by its owner Nikos Velianitis into a bespoke, luxury, private guesthouse with full consideration of its history, and with authenticity being its main attribute.
The Dream to create a place that offers a sense of Home away from home for our guests became a reality in the early 90s.
Pelecas Country Club consists of four 19th century stone-built buildings the Mansion, the Larione, the Loutrouvio (the ‘olive press’ in Corfiot dialect) and the Casa Vinifera.
The Country-Chic Suites and Rooms are all decorated with the family’s original antique furniture and fitted with Apivita toiletries. No two rooms are alike. The names of the rooms have been inspired by agricultural work, the estate’s produce and the original use of spaces.
The Velianiti Family Mansion is the main building. This used to be the family’s summer residence. On the ground floor you will find the Florentine dining room (the Sagrado) with a large monastery-style table, where guests can savour our delicious homemade breakfast with marmalades and jams prepared to the old family recipes of Nonna Lina, mouth-watering pies and tarts and fresh vegetables from the garden.
