Peligoni’s 30th Anniversary

2019 marks the 30th anniversary of The Peligoni Club. To celebrate, we’re looking back over the years.


Peligoni Launches

“Sailing south of Corfu, we discovered the northern coastline by chance. We were so captivated by its beauty we bought a holiday cottage. Friends came for sailing and watersports…And so, in 1989 The Peligoni Club was born. Guests, enchanted by the relaxed atmosphere and stunning scenery, returned year after year.”

John Alexander & Vanessa Goldie. Founders of The Peligoni Club.


Word Spread, Our Reputation Grew

“Over the years, friends have built their own beautiful villas with pools in the surrounding hills. Some of the fabulous properties are now available to Peligoni guests. So if you’re looking for something a little bit special, you can enjoy splendid isolation with the luxury of your own swimming pool, en suite. And you’ve always got the buzz of the Peligoni Clubhouse ten minutes away. Irresistible? We think so. ”

New Chapter

“For me, The Peligoni Club offered the ingredients for the perfect family holiday. So when Johnny and Vanessa decided to retire, my family and I were devastated. A summer without Peligoni? What were we to do? The only answer was to buy the club. We’ve given it a discreet face-lift and are planning a swimming pool. There’s a funky new Rock Bar. We’ve also invested in lots of new sailing and watersports. But most importantly, we’ve tried very hard to keep the magic.”

Iain Shearer, Owner Of The Peligoni Club


Peligoni Today

“Peligoni is a small, family-owned club. We don’t have ‘clients’ in the traditional sense. Our guests quickly become our friends, returning year after year, with and without children to catch up with old friends and make new ones. Without any pomp or circumstance, it is the perfect summer destination for families and friends of all ages, a home away from home and a special place to many.”

Ben Shearer, Managing Director

Our 30TH Anniversary Merchandise

We know how much you love a Peligoni t-shirt, so we’ve taken inspiration for all the styles we’ve had made over the years to create a special 30th Anniversary edition available to purchase at the club this summer. We’ll have jumpers, tote bags and children’s merchandise too. If you’d like to reserve your t-shirt just contact us and we’ll have one waiting for you on arrival.




If you were a guest or member of staff at The Peligoni Club in the 90s, you’ll receive a complimentary bottle of champagne upon arrival this summer. Simply send us a photo from your experience at the club when booking; we look forward to reminiscing on all things Peli and would love you to see how far the club has come since those early days.
