The olive farm has existed since the early 19th century and was bought by the grandfather of the current owner in the 1950s. Apostolos and his wife took over the farm ten years ago and renovated it sustainably. The name of the farm goes back to the grandfather, who, as an orthopaedic surgeon, swore by the healing effects of olive oil. His particularly gentle care and harvest of the traditional olive trees improved the quality of the oil in the long term - today it has won several awards.
The farm's two guest houses are located in the middle of the olive grove and are intended to allow visitors maximum relaxation and closeness to nature. Cats, dogs and chickens live together harmoniously here. The newer guest house is also the oldest building on the site and used to be the camp. It is now a beautifully renovated house with a covered porch with a hammock and sun loungers. Inside you can see the old stone structure under the white plastered walls. Cheerful colors such as a large sky blue couch, the new sunny yellow bathroom and the olive green wardrobe are paired with traditional carpets and a few selected antiques. The other guest house is slightly larger and used to be the stable. With the exposed roof beams and lots of wooden furniture, it seems a bit more rustic, and here, too, the bright colors immediately put you in a good mood. There is also a fireplace and two living and study rooms.
In the open kitchens of the houses, guests can prepare dinner together using fruit, vegetables, olive oil, olives and fresh eggs from the farm, before heading out on the terrace to pet the friendly cats for mutual relaxation.
ArchitectureThe two guest houses are converted stables and barns. Everything was reused during the conversions or materials from the region were used. The garden furniture was self-made. There was no plastic waste or scrap during the conversion, as local resources have always been (re)constructed in a way that conserves resources.
FoodThere are fruit, vegetables, olive oil, olives and eggs fresh from the farm. Farm-to-table dinners can also be arranged on request.
EnvironmentOwn well water is used and heated with solar energy. The olive trees are farmed organically - the organic farm is certified. Garbage is recycled on the farm, organic waste is fed to the chickens or made into fertilizer. Only natural olive oil soap from Corfu is used to clean the houses.
From the port or airport in Corfu city it takes only about 20 minutes to drive to Dr Kavvadia's Farm (11 km). The exact address can be found on the website.
There is a bus service from Corfu town to Tzavros. The bus stop is about 500 meters from the farm.
