Paleokastritsa

OVERVIEW

The picturesque village of Paleokastritsa, located on the north-west coast of Corfu, around 25 km from Corfu Town, has long been considered one of the most beautiful spots, not just of Corfu, but also of Greece as a whole.


The coastline of Paleokastritsa is particularly varied and dramatic and consists of over 15 bays many of which are accessible only by boat. Surrounded by hills covered in cypresses, olive and citrus trees, numerous cliffs fall down to sandy beaches leading to crystal-clear waters. Legend has it that it is on one of these beaches where the shipwrecked Odysseus (the hero of Homer’s Odyssey) was washed ashore and met Nausicaa for the first time. Another attraction of the area is the many beautiful caves dotted along the coastline which can be explored by small boats.


Perched on a hill looking out to the Adriatic Sea is one of the island's most beautiful monasteries, the 13th century monastery of the Virgin Mary. This small working monastery has a beautiful chapel and gardens, as well as an unparalleled view out to sea. Nearby villages include the unspoilt Lakones, which is full of traditional houses and also offers a wonderful view, sometimes said to be the best in Corfu, down over Paleokastritsa and beyond.
