Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Paleokastritsa - Elysium apartments

Peaceful mountainside position with stunning panoramic sea views.

This exceptional, spacious apartment offers the more discerning traveller something unique and rare to find on the beautiful North West coastal region of Corfu. The apartment occupies the entire ground floor of the property and is located in a spectacular mountainside position with stunning sea views directly ahead. This luxury ground floor apartment is ideally suited to couples who are looking for that 'special' holiday treat such as honeymooners or alternatively it is quite suitable for family use when utilising the large sofa bed in the lounge.

Our accommodation offers an ideal base for walkers and hikers who are interested in participating in the 'Corfu Trail', as Paleokastritsa is directly located on the picturesque route of the Corfu trail which covers approximately 200 klms of the island.

In addition scheduled ferries available to Corfu from most Italian ports and mainland Greece.

Visiting Corfu before May 1st: With Easyjet's direct flight schedule beginning as early as March, it's now possible to fly direct to Corfu affordably and sooner than ever!

Please note that as owners of the 'Elysium apartments' we always endeavour to have our property available for the first direct flight to Corfu. Unfortunately, this is not the case for the majority of other businesses and facilities as the official recognised date for the start of the summer season is May 1st.

Should you decide to visit before May 1st, either to witness the fantastic Easter celebrations in Corfu town, or simply to enjoy the beaches virtually to yourselves, please be assured that we will attempt to resolve any issues that may arise by visiting before the resorts facilities have opened.

It is always advisable to consider renting a hire vehicle before the official start of the season.

Paleokastritsa resort/ Easter in Corfu: Paleokastritsa is a unique and stunning area of Corfu. Unlike many other areas of the island, there is an extensive choice of tavernas, bars, swimming pools, beaches and so much more besides!

Unless you wish to explore the island, a hire vehicle is not necessary as tourists in Paleokastritsa are not captive to a small selection of facilities.

Despite it's relatively large size as a resort, Paleokastritsa remains one of the most unspoilt areas of Corfu due to strict environmental government regulations.

You will not forget Paleokastritsa - it is a remarkable place of natural beauty which many tourists return to time and time again.

Easter in Corfu town is a remarkable event. If an early holiday appeals to you, don't miss the lively celebrations!

An all day event includes traditional processions, costume and music.

Witness water filled pots thrown from tall Venentian properties in a crazy Corfiot moment and later a fabulous firework display!

What a view!

  • 5 out of 5
We have stayed in Greece many times - but never in such a stunning location and in such high standard accommodation! The whole holiday was superb from start to finish. It was lovely being met by Des and Gemma who had tried ( and succeeded) to anticipate our every need - including help up the steep drive and steps with our luggage / cold bottles of water already in the fridge and a lovely welcome pack to get us started immediately. The description and photos of the property are really accurate - the view really is that amazing! The apartment itself is immaculate - equipped with everything you could possible wish for including a full oven and even a toaster and electric orange juicer! Usually when we stay in a one bed apartment with our teenage girls it feels a bit cramped - but this apartment is incredibly spacious and the rooms larger than they appear on the photos.With 3 different areas to sit - sun or shade could be had at any time of the day. Although there is not a pool at the accommodation - using the pools at nearby pool bars and hotels is the norm ( 5-10 min walk). In many ways this was even better than having a pool at the accommodation as we got to use several different ones - many with breathtaking views and at no extra cost! There is also swimming from the rocks directly below the apartments and a beach a mere 5 min walk away. There is lots to do in the nearby area including visiting hill top villages and boat trips to isolated beaches. Corfu town is also a wonderful place to visit for the day. Gemma and Des have also provided a very detailed brochure in the apartment of things to see / places to go/eat etc. They really are the most perfect hosts!

Although the steep drive and steps to the apartment and stunning view should not be a problem for most people- it is certainly not a place to stay if you have mobility problems! However, we didn't find it a problem and our teenage girls didn't complain once! We would advise against trying to drive up - far easier to park and walk the short distance!

We hope to return!

Fabulous apartment with glorious views

  • 5 out of 5
Staying in Elysium for a (too short 8 days) in September was without a doubt the absolute highlight of our recent trip to Europe. Like many other visitors we fell in love with Corfu; but specifically Paleokastritsa and cannot wait to return.

This apartment is magnificent and the views more than warrant the small effort of negotiating the stairs to get there (though I wasn't the one who had to lug our too heavy bags up them, I must admit!).

We have now stayed in many terrific apartments throughout Europe found through this site over our past 2 trips but without a doubt our stay at Elysium has been the most enjoyable on several levels. Aside from the obvious beauty of our surroundings and also the luxuriousness of the apartment itself (which I could happily live in permanently), this is in large part due to the genuine hospitality and friendliness offered by both Des and Gemma (and Charlie). Without their genuine commitment to Elysium, the stay would not have been as memorable.

Like many, we intend to return again soon.

Once in a lifetime trip - for the third time!

  • 5 out of 5
We spent two unforgettable weeks at Elysium apartment. Earlier we stayed upstairs in studios,but lucky us,they were not available this time and we chose to move downstairs. Worth moving! Friends back home were fully aware (read:envious) of our coming luxurious accommodation and so were we – we had seen it before. After the night flight from cold and rainy Finland to Corfu,and the ever so romantic night drive through Corfu town heading along the familiar road for Paleokastritsa – the Very Dear Feeling of being in Corfu again almost made us scream of joy!
Walking up the slopes and stairs with luggage,opening the door and seeing it all still surprised us totally – this great apartment with all its conveniences is ours for a long time! We almost got lost in the rooms and space. Previous guests have praised Elysium in such detailed way that we cannot find anything new to say,we enjoyed everything! Once again we want to tell you Gemma and Des,that your passion and love for this dear Elysium is something unique. We were here for the third time,every time we get more and more convinced that this is The Place to stay on this island. We have been driving a lot around Corfu,have seen plenty of ways to keep and maintain a property,yours is just above them all. You put your heart inside and outside this house in great details. So we thank you again and hope to come back, all three of us. And as my dear daughter later stated in such an assuring way: If we hadn’t ever come to Paleo and Elysium and not met you,and if we hadn’t had all those unforgettable talks and chats about life in general,we would not even understand how much we had missed. A long and complicated sentence but straight from our hearts! You make our holiday!
We hope that more Finnish people find Elysium,so I continue my thanks in Finnish. Olimme taas kerran tässä ihanassa paikassa. Ollaan nähty niin monenlaisia majoituksia ettei edes ajatella muualla asumista kuin täällä. Siisteys ja kauneus talon sisällä,ulkopuolella ja puutarhassa aivan alhaalta kadulta lähtien,kaikki on niin kerrassaan harkittua ja huolella hoidettua. Eka reissu oli 6/2011 ja jos jaksatte rullata alas,sen muistelot löytyvät luettaviksi. Lapsiperheen luksuslomaa!Auto on hyvä olla,näin näkee saarta,elämää ja maisemia joka suunnalta.Myös uiminen saaren eri rannoilla on mukavaa vaihtelua.Me jäimme Korfun ja Elysiumin koukkuun iäksi! Suosittelemme teillekin! We have now found Our Elysium!

With love,
Raija, Elina and Miia from Finland

We stayed at this apartment for a week and it was a perfect stay! The apartment is as good as its photos--spacious, clean, and lovely-- and the hosts are exceptionally warm and helpful. The location is perfect for exploring Corfu and there are an array of beaches, activities, restaurants, and bars in easy access. Corfu is a beautiful, dreamy place to visit and this apartment is perfect!

Geweldig Genoten

  • 5 out of 5
Mijn broer en zijn vrouw proberen ons al jarenlang te overtuigen dat we moeten gaan vliegen en wel naar Corfu: het Elysium. Eindelijk was het dit voorjaar zover: we zijn 2 weken geweest.
En inderdaad, het was fantastisch. Het appartement is met zoveel liefde en perfectie door de Engelstalige eigenaren gemaakt en onderhouden, dat voelt als een warm bad. Zij doen er, met gepaste afstand, werkelijk alles aan om je verblijf tot een groot succes te maken. Je kunt deze bijzondere plek alleen bereiken middels een paar trappen Je kunt de prachtige omgeving goed wandelend verkennen maar in de tweede week hebben wij een auto gehuurd zodat we heel veel van het prachtige eiland hebben kunnen ontdekken. En 's avonds de heerlijke Griekse keuken... Maar je kunt ook dagenlang thuis blijven en in zon of schaduw van het uitzicht genieten. Zoek je een bestemming voor een vakantie in voor-of naseizoen? Dan zouden wij dit iedereen aanbevelen. Juist dit gedeelte van Corfu laat veel bijzondere beelden op je netvlies achter. Doe Des en Gemma van ons de groeten!

Sun, sea, sand and scenery, Paleokastritsa has it all. At the heart of its natural beauty can be found several picturesque bays with turquoise waters, which are ideal for swimming, snorkeling and water sports. The resort is backed by sheer cliffs of olive groves and cypress trees, and as such the terrain is ideal for individuals with interests in painting, photography, walking and hiking. The resort hosts a wide range of amenities for the young and old alike and has a fine selection of swimming pools, restaurants and bars. Next to the main beach a road leads up to the world famous monastery, built on top of a cliff in a most idyllic setting. Visitors both foreign and local come to enjoy the spectacular beauty of the scenery each year. Paleokastritsa has its own small harbour, this picturesque spot has a relaxed atmosphere where it is possible to hire day boats to visit nearby secluded beaches inaccessible by land, board one of the glass bottom boats or just go fishing!
