Paleokastritsa Holidays

The jewel of Corfu

Paleokastritsa is rumoured to be the spot where a weary, shipwrecked Odysseus washed ashore and met the beautiful Nausicaa. Thousands of years later, the village is still wowing visitors with its jaw-dropping looks and distinct charms. At what is considered by many to be the jewel of Corfu, Paleokastritsa holidays can include swimming in a lagoon, exploring a 13th-century fortress and zipping around the shoreline in a boat.

There are six beaches in the immediate area, and each has its own appeal. This is also one of the most lively and popular villages on the island, so you’ll find everything you need for holiday perfection. There are many typical Greek tavernas to choose from along the hill and waterfront, and if you want more action you can head to Corfu Town, a 30-minute drive away. You’ll spend holidays to Paleokastritsa relaxing and strolling in the village and countryside, and swimming and snorkelling in the turquoise waters. What’s not to love?
