A recent visit to the lovely village of Lakones led to Corfuhomefinders being given an old stone village house to sell. Village houses with gardens are rare indeed, and when they come with a sea view as well, as this one does, we feel entitled to get enthusiastic.
In need of renovation, the house could be made into a real beauty. It has not been lived in for some time, though it is still partly furnished, with its contents liberally sprinkled with flaking plaster and spiders’ webs. It is quite common to find large stuffed animals, teddy bears and dolls taking pride of place in the “front parlour” of village homes. My photo shows the current occupant of the living room, who gave us a bit of a fright when we opened the front door!
