That's Greece again...
I went to the island of a couple of times and stayed at a place called Ipsos.

On the Corfu page I notice the following...

The second range culminates in the mountain of Santi Jeca, or Santa Decca, as it is called by misinterpretation of the Greek designation Άγιοι Δέκα (Hagioi Deka), or the Ten Saints.

Nicole Fox (born March 6, 1991) is an American fashion model, best known as the winner of Cycle 13 of America's Next Top Model.
