The Ionian Eye has a perfect location - just outside Messonghi village, above the road to Boukari, surrounded by olive and citrus groves, with uninterrupted views of the sea. The fully renovated interiors, designed by Robert Rys, incorporate innovative, organic and sustainably sourced products. Comfort and relaxation have been considered from design concept to completion. Quality fittings are complimented by chic furnishings commissioned especially for Ionian Eye. The studios are located over the ground, first and second floors of the property. The studios have been thoughtfully designed so that the sleeping and living areas of the double and triple studios are well defined. The two room studios have a comfortable sofa bed in the living area and plenty of storage space for bed linen and ...The Ionian Eye has a perfect location - just outside Messonghi village, above the road to Boukari, surrounded by olive and citrus groves, with uninterrupted views of the sea.

Beautiful pool area is quiet and calm with breathtaking views. Close walk to the beach, although it is a pebbly beach. Close walk to supermarkets, bars and tavernas. Amazingly helpful and friendly staff who are relaxed and just wanting to help.

About the neighbourhood
The centre of Messonghi village is only 500m from the property and is considered to be one of the most charming resorts in Corfu. The landscape of the local area combines mountains, sea and a river. It is not a coincidence that this resort pioneered tourism in Greece. Archaeological findings of early settlements dated 50,000 B.C. have been excavated here, a fact which makes the area interesting also from another point of view. There is a bakery, supermarkets, restaurants and bars on the beach. The resort also has some excellent tavernas serving fresh caught fish and seafood.
Getting around
Staying at the Ionian Eye means you don’t have to search for anything. Excursion tickets and vehicle hire can be pre booked before you arrive and ready for the day that you require. We only work with local suppliers, who have an excellent reputation. If you prefer to wait until you arrive, our on site agency can recommend and advise you on excursions and tours, interesting places and beautiful beaches to visit if you rent a vehicle. If you want to experience something more diverse kite surfing or a day shopping for ingredients and learning to cook traditional Corfiot food may appeal to you. We are happy to help with restaurant reservations and taxi bookings and your airport transfers.
