The North East Coast
Reached by picturesque coastline roads, the North East Coast of Corfu is the place to enjoy your holiday. The Greek villages in this area possess a more traditional feel, being less commercialised than much of the other places on the island. Being free from dangerous currents, even the sea poses no danger, adding to the fact that Corfu is one of the safest places in the world. With all these benefits, it’s not surprising that V.I.P’s, both from inside and out of Europe, already have villa holidays here.
Once the capital of Corfu, Kassiopi lies 36km north of Corfu Town and its airport. The village displays a magnificent backdrop of Mount Pantokrator on one side and the Albanian coastline on the other. Throughout the surrounding area, the hills are covered with a sea of olive groves, vines and citrus plantations.
The lovely village of Kassiopi provides a satisfying array of possibilities to suit everyone. From an offering of both traditional and international cuisine to lively or leisurely bar culture to invigorating walks of castle ruins and coast – the variety of choice makes Kassiopi quite cosmopolitan.
Within the village you can find plenty of things you may need or want: shops, restaurants, bars, supermarkets, car-hire, diving centre, excursion/exchange offices, computer access, pharmacy etc.
Kassiopi is ideally situated as a base for those who wish to explore the surrounding villages as boat/coach excursions run straight from the village. Why not enjoy a relaxing east coast cruise or, going west, have fun on the sandy beach BBQ trip? Prefer to explore by yourselves? Hire a boat from the quaint harbour of Kassiopi and be skipper for the day.
Alternatively, for those who wish to kick back and do nothing, Kassiopi’s laid-back atmosphere makes the perfect backdrop. The main beach (Kalamionas beach) is just a gentle stroll away. There are a few equally or more-so beautiful smaller coves along the headland that you may wish to explore also – all within easy walking distance. Being on the north east coast of Corfu, the seas here are free from dangerous currents and they flaunt blue-flag status. Go crab fishing in one of several rock coves or try fishing for your tea – perhaps have a back-up meal planned though!
In booking with ourselves, you are dealing with the owners who live within the village whom therefore are able to offer great tips, advice and contacts for whatever you may wish to do once in Kassiopi. Most important thing: enjoy your holiday in our village because it’s a very special, beautiful place.
