Why I Chose Korakia Pensione
I was tired of the news and being around lots of people. I wanted a place away from technology.
History Of Korakia Pensione
Gordon Coutts, a painter, built his home and artist studio in 1924 in Moroccan architecture style, harkening back to his life in Tangier. The arches are enhanced with flowering bougainvillea, and three-tiered fountains grace the poolside in the Moroccan courtyard.
Coutts’ neighbor directly across the street was J Carol Naish, a silent screen star. Her Mediterranean-style house was purchased in 1933 and seamlessly became part of the Korakia Pensione.
The resort name comes from the Greek word for crows. Since crows were abundant in the mountains, Doug Smith, who’s of Greek descent, named it Korakia Pensione.
