About Philip Donnelly
Hello! We’re Phil Donnelly and Ginny Walker. Welcome to Corfu and Mulberry House! We fell in love with Greece –and each other- back in 1988 when we met while working in a dusty little town on the edge of the Epirus on the mainland called Agrinion. Of course this was pre-internet, pre-mobile/cell phone and in Agrinion pre-phone altogether! Communication home was only possible through a pre-booked slot in the town’s telephone exchange -the eponymous OTE. As two impoverished graduates we promised ourselves that one day we would return to Greece and have our own place here. It took a little longer than expected (we bought Mulberry House and Cottage in 2015!) but now we are here and delighted to welcome you to our own little bit of Greek paradise.

Why Philip Donnelly chose Rou
Perhaps now best known to the 6 million viewers of the 2016 ITV hit show The Durrells, Corfu has been the home of artists, writers and poets for centuries. It was Gerry Durrell’s older brother Lawrence who famously described Corfu as “a peninsula nipped off while red hot and allowed to cool into an antarctica of lava” in his 1945 classic, Prospero’s Cell (just have a look at Corfu on Google maps to see what he means!) The best time to visit? This very much depends on your own preferences, but we love walking the Corfu Trail in April and October when you can still be assured of bright, sunny days. And because of our location in the hills above the north east coast, the sometimes oppresive heat on the coast in mid summer is tempered by the Corfiot afternoon breeze.
What makes this House unique
Location, location location...is what our guests tell us: "A fantastic place to relax and chill out..." “What a fantastic location. Great views and Corfu countryside right outside your bedroom window. Mulberry is everything we could have asked for. We just relaxed and soaked up the experience” “Eagles overhead, pinemartins and tiny screech owls…” “The House is excellent, spacious and well-organised. We particularly love the view through the french doors from the bedroom"

Boutique bolt hole where the views are King!
We had a great time at Mulberry. The views from each and every little inch of the house are truly special and we will remember those always. Thank you
A House with a view!
Mulberry House is a secluded, peaceful and utterly delightful place to stay. It is worth the hair-raising journey up into the hills for the view alone. Eagles soared and called to each other and in the distance, boats of all shapes and sizes glided majestically across the water. Albania seemed almost within touching distance.
We spent many very lazy days by the glorious infinity pool, reading and relaxing until we nodded off in the afternoon on any number of the sun loungers.
The house itself and the furnishings were tasteful and stylish. I cannot think of a single thing that I wished I should have packed. Everything is taken care of and you really don't need to leave the house at all!
If you do feel able to wrench yourself away from the pool and view, may I recommend Agni Beach and the delicious food and exemplary service at Toula's. We also hired a boat from San Stefanos which has another lovely beach and then on to Kerasia for lunch at the eponymous taverna there. Charming staff and more traditional Greek food than Toula's but still delicious.
Other highlights were the old village of Perithia, now a UNESCO World Heritage site and the village of Kalami.
The weather was in the low 30s and everyone we spoke to was charming, positive and helpful.
We absolutely loved our holiday and thoroughly recommend a stay here.
Very nice house with wonderful view
Mulberry house is in a wonderful location, the view down to Corfu Channel and the Albanian and Greek coast just impressive. The house is nicely furnished, the bed very comfortable, the temperatures on the inside cool, even on hot days. Everything was very clean when we got there and the cleaning service during the week impeccable. The kitchen was well equipped and the welcome package appreciated. We enjoyed our vacation very much.
