About Kate Denaux

I am Belgian and traveled the world having lived in many different countries. After having enjoyed many holidays on Corfu, I decided to move here permanently.

Kate Denaux purchased this villa in 1974

Why Kate Denaux chose Kassiopi

Whilst living in the States, I was invited to spend a holiday on Corfu with British friends who already had a house here and I immediately fell in love with the two stone ruins which I turned in to my home.

These 2 old ruins caught my eye and got me excited about renovating them. Their location and remoteness, with the uninterrupted views for ever guaranteed made it the ideal place.

In view of my permanent move to the island, I have converted Lismonia from a simple holiday house into a very cozy home.

What makes this villa unique

The name of the house became Lismonia (forgetfulness) which says it all. Sitting on the terraces, enjoying the extraordinary views over the village and the Albanian coastline, quiet and secluded, one can only feel total happiness. I consider myself very lucky indeed and I am very happy to have guests enjoying it for themselves.

The combination of English antiques and contemporary art gives the house a very special feeling and offers quite a different atmosphere.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Absolutely fantastic place! Everything that was promised in our previous correspondence was there. Fantastic views with peace and tranquility in abundance. if you can't chill here, you can't chill anywhere. Already thinking about next year and spreading the Lismonia word. P & M Turnbull.

We have stayed in a lot of villas around the Kassiopi area, but we can truly say that Lismonia has the rare quality of feeling like a home, which it truly is. Mr & Mrs Campay.

What a "magical" home! It is such a gem of a house. Thank you, we will be back. Moran Family

Charming stone house in fabulous location

  • 4 of 5

Rare in Corfu a stone house sitting just above Kassiopi. The location is perfect and the views outstanding. The house gets sun throughout the day and is very nicely decorated. An authentic Corfiot experience!

A wonderful trip to an exceptional villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic trip to Lismonia. The Villa has a breathtaking view from the glorious terrace (which is huge). We were blessed with gorgeous weather but every corner of the villa charmed us - the pool, the gorgeous rooms (especially the top bedroom which has a fantatsic 270 degree view ), BBQ, Air Con, WIFI, a fresh lemon from the lemon tree adds something to a G&T, I could go on...

The kids all loved it, and the peace that you get being up the hill was only really clear when we saw some friends who were closer to the village, where you can hear many pool parties humming around you. There was heaps of space in the fridges for cold drinks etc and the kitchen was very well stocked.

Kate, the owner, set everything up with clinicl efficiency and the maid was charming and very efficient.

Filippos boats in the village provided fantastic transport to potter around the coast to visit the wonderful tavernas and the kids appeared to have found The Harbour bar as the best option in town!

Step off the world for a moment at Lismonia. The peace and tranquillity are in abundance and yet within minutes we were in the delightful Kassiopi village. We have had a wonderful family holiday at Lismonia enjoying the stunning views, the gorgeous house and the amazing area that is on your doorstep. All in all this was a fantastic villa to stay in and we will definitely be back next year!
