LUXURY APARTMENT WITH PANORAMIC SEA VIEWS IN PALEOKASTRITSA, CORFU

Special Offer: Stunning Paleokastritsa special offer! 17 May - 8 November

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
  • Review Submitted: 24-Aug-2011
  • Date of Stay: Aug 2011
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!

Elysium: luxury property in Paleokastritsa.

Des & Gemma were the most welcoming hosts you could wish for. The property was in A1 condition and the quality is leagues above the usual level expected of Greek accommodation! We can not recommend Elysium and Des & Gemma any more highly; first class all round!

Having recently returned from a week’s stay, at the very start of the summer season, I can heartedly endorse the positive reviews already given. The apartment entirely lives up to its billing; the accommodation is first class, and the views simply stunning. Des and Gemma were extremely friendly and attentive hosts and my partner and I are both very keen to go again to this beautiful part of the island.

Een paradijsje op Korfoe.

Hallo Gemma en Des,

Onze ontvangst was heel hartelijk. We werden meteen gerustgesteld dat we niet zelf de steile helling omhoog moesten rijden.
Eenmaal 80 treden omhoog geklommen werden we beloond met een adembenemend uitzicht. Het appartement is prachtig ingericht en voldoet in alles.
Gemma en Des zijn allerhartelijkst en geven veel informatie over het eiland en zijn bewoners. Wij hebben ons erg op ons gemak gevoeld. De locatie ligt zeer gunstig voor uitstapjes naar andere delen van het eiland en naar Korfoe-stad.
Kortom, een echte aanrader om hier te verblijven tijdens je vakantie op Korfoe.

Hartelijke groeten van Alfred en Marianne Bonke uit Nederland.

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!
