Mon Repos, Corfu

Sat on top of Analipsis hill in the forest of Paleopolis, two kilometres south of Corfu town, this villa currently houses the Paleopolis Museum.

 The villa looks out onto the Ionian sea. It was built in the 19th-century as a gift from British Commissioner Frederic Adams to his Corfiot wife, Nina Palatianou. Since then it has housed British governors and has been the birthplace of several royals, including Princess Sophie of Greece and Denmark, Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh and Princess Alexia of Greece and Denmark. Inside the museum you can see archeological finds, historical documents, furniture and decorative objects from the 19th-century and a collection of watercolours and botanical samples representing the natural heritage of Corfu. You can also walk through the forest under giant, old trees and towards the back is a small dock leading out to the sea.
