Dear friends

Let me introduce myself! My name is Roula Rouva and I am the Founder and Managing Director of “Roula Rouva Leading Real Estate Agency”. The agency was first established in 2003 on the beautiful island of Corfu and now is the largest estate agency on the island, based on the number of properties and agents. My team of experts consists of 24 real estate agents and contributors and many more who part-take in our extended team of specialists such as internationally trained lawyers, architects and engineers, construction companies, notaries, tax accountants and landscapers. I am very proud as my agency has achieved such a noteworthy growth, especially given the fact that we have expanded within an economic crisis, opening new locations in the North part of Corfu in Karousades, Arillas and Sidari and of course in the island of Paxos. Our diversified portfolio involves properties from different range in value such as village houses in need of complete renovation to multi million euro luxury villas. Also, commercial properties for investment and land suitable for building or agricultural use. There is a property for every request. Along with my team of professionals and well trained agents, I have taken part in a variety of exhibitions abroad such as the “Luxury Property Show”, the “A place in the Sun” in London and the “Buying Properties Abroad” in Stockholm and this is how we have managed to establish an international network of collaborators with various real estate agencies from all over the world and we have welcomed clients from all over the globe. Our pioneering Marketing campaigns have set us apart from any other real estate agencies in Corfu, making us the leaders of this market. We also publish our own magazine called “ Real Corfu “ which promotes Corfu as a destination and of course our portfolio’s properties. One of our many accomplishments within our growth, is that we have been

awarded as the Best Real Estate Agency in Greece for the year of 2016 from the European Property Awards in London. We are especially proud to have been awarded on our first entry. This award has been an overwhelming honour for our agency because it is not only very prestigious but it is also widely recognisable, highly credible and extremely rewarding. The feature to which we owe our continuing success and has made us unique, is the fact that every time we provide our services, our first intention and aim is to have satisfied clients. So with this in mind, we make a continuous effort and go above and beyond normal requirements by expanding our services, which now entail our RR Concierge as well as our RR Luxury Travel, in order to provide the best for our clients. By doing so, we have created friendly relationships, which in many cases have led to wonderful long lasting friendships.

to peacefully settle in a place with a view to the sea. So they chose this part of the world, today known as Korakades. They soared the seas doing what they knew best and as they were great fishermen they fished and sold their fish to the nearby villages, where they also anchored their boats at Petriti and Boukari.

Korission lake

reached by climbing over 100 steps. Services are held twice a year, on the 29th of June and on the 8th of September. On this date many visitors from Sinarades and the nearby villages go to this island with their boats from Kontogyalos in order to partake in the service. After the service they buy roasted lamb’s meat on a spit and they sit under the shade of the olive tress eating it and drinking the well known Sinaraditiko red wine. A small siesta in the shade usually follows and after that, a refreshing dip in the crystal clear deep blue sea, before their return trip back home. KORISSION LAKE The largest sea lake on the is-

land, an official nature resort protected by Natura. Situated in the South of the island, near Argyrades, covers an area of about 6000 stremma including the sea side areas around it. This lake attracts 126 different varieties of birds amongst which, are flamingos and ducks and also thousands of butterflies. Something else unique in this area is the Kedrodasos a wood consisting of sedar trees as well as a vast number of sand hills whose hight is over 15 m and there are white lilies with 14 different varieties of orchids on the sand. All this combined and the beauty of the entire scene of this sea lake make an unforgettable picture.

ARKOUDILAS The Arkoudila wood covers an area of approximately 250 stremma with a rich growth. Inside this wood on the top of the hill a 170 a.d Catholic monastery to Panagia of Arkoudila is to be found. The beach of Arkoudila spreads directly below and can be reached by a gravel road from the area of Kavos. The scenery will impress anyone, as numerous clay formations have been sculptured by the elements of nature. Also, many ants, butterflies, tortoises, scorpions, snakes, insects and the protected spices of the careta-careta turtles can be found there.

Why hiring an Attorney...

...when purchasing a property is necessary and what our services really have to offer. Buying a house, an apartment or a plot to build on, in Greece, it is subject to similar legalities to those applying in most EU countries. However, as every case is different , it is wise to appoint an attorney who will carefully revise every detail and guide you throughout the whole process, making sure that you will buy a property legally checked from every aspect. It is necessary to appoint an attorney to check the ownership title and to assure you that the property is free of any legal encumbrances. So, for your piece of mind and convenience Roula Rouva Real Estate collaborates with a team of professional attorneys who will be happy to offer their responsible expert legal advice. Reason No. 1: When you have taken the decision to invest your money in another country like Greece, you need to feel safe and to have the assurance that there is no risk involved. Reason No. 2: Although it is a very good time for investments in Greece, the process of a purchase is not at all automated and typical like in other countries. On the contrary, because of the poor system in most of the land registries, the particular legal status in some special regions in Corfu and also due to the possible and highly probable red tape, an attorney is more precious than ever! Reason No. 3: As no one else can really replace the key –role that we play in a purchase, we do not only offer our services for the contract but also remain your legal representatives for as long as you wish, therefore you can feel safe about any issue which may concern you in the future. Reason No. 4: Beyond our major legal task, we also offer our clients a wide range of other administrative services, acting as their legal representatives in almost every public service required, as well as in any bank. Whereas we simultaneously allow you to take advantage of our legal knowledge

Ok, so you have chosen your destination and booked your accommodation which is either an Apartment, B&B or a Luxury villa. Now you just have to organize what to visit in Corfu and of course what to eat… As you probably already know Greek islands are mostly all about seafood, drinks on the beach and ouzo in Tavernas by the sea. to South you will find variations.

Introducing «mezedes»

Greeks are into mezedes as Spanish are into tapas and Italians into aperitif. Oyζo mixes the spirit and opens the journey. Mezedes can be the classical and original melt_in_the_mouth octopus which personally we absolutely recommend, anchovies, (gónos kalamaráki) baby squids or crispy atherína in late spring. Dolmadakia (wine leaves with rice), fresh springtime artichokes are fricasseed in a white sauce with parsley and celery, trigonákia (triangular cheesestuffed turnovers with honey), bekri meze (pork-based and a bit spicy).

Remember! no meze can be tasted without the accompaniment of a serious Oyζο glass.

Meet the «Casserole» dishes

The Corfiot dishes are dominated and inextricably tied in with the history of the island, and this is what makes the Corfiot food so different from the rest of Greece. Italians The Venetian domination influenced the Corfiot kitchen and local cuisine into introducing a more elaborate gastronomy and a traditional one. As Italians are very much into sauces, especially the ones made from tomatoes, you will find many Corfiot dishes made with a red sauce base.

Signature mezedes include fluffy three-cheese saganáki, succulent fresh- fried shrimp.

Pastitsada is for sure the most well known pasta dish, cooked with thick pasta and tomato sauce and veal, beef or rooster. Flavoured with garlic, minced onions, white wine and spiced with cloves, cinnamon and bay leaves – some use nutmeg, cumin and allspice.

Every meze has its particularity and from one place to another they may vary on the spices and in the way they are cooked and served, even in Corfu from North
