Fabulous apartment in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many apartments in Europe and this has got to be the best. We stayed in the luxury apartment which is modern and spacious and kept in pristine condition by caretakers Tracy and Sandra. The shared garden is beautiful with the most stunning views. Paleokasistra is a lovely place to stay with plenty of walks in the area where you can visit traditional villages such as Doukades and Lakones. The apartments are ideally placed with plenty of tavernas within walking distance. It was just the perfect holiday for us and we thoroughly recommend Elysian Apartments.

Lovely studio with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

The studio is in a beautiful location on a cliff overlooking the sea accessed by quite a few steps! It is comfortable and very well equipped and maintained with plenty of storage for a small studio. The efficient air conditioning was very much appreciated as it was very hot during our stay. There are lots of activities e.g boat hire, trips, water sports etc and a great selection of restaurants and bars nearby. The owners were very helpful and provided lots of information. I would highly recommend this studio.

Stunning views, great studio

  • 5 of 5

Lovely apartment with a view to die for. We had such a lovely few days here. The studios were very well presented and laid out, even though they are not huge. Kitchenette has everything you need for preparing breakfast and simple meals. The views from the balcony and gardens really make the stay special. You can't beat waking up to having a coffee with that vista!

Only a short walk into town and all what Paleo has to offer. I think the studios offer great value for money too, especially having looked at other, more expensive options in town. Highly recommended.

Fantastic stay - everything was perfect !

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Elysium was really fantastic ! We have enjoyed the outstanding view from the studio ( and the beautiful garden ) towards the sea all the time - unless we have been on our way to discover the beautiful island of Corfu. According to Gemma`s hint we have been able to choose the easiest way to rent a car. Everything was perfect !! Thank You ! Next time on the island we will surely choose Elysium again !!

A View To Die For!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful holiday spent at the Elysium apartments in Paleokastritsa with our daughter and her boyfriend. We rented two separate studios which worked out perfectly for us. The studios are very well equipped and clean and are in the most stunning of locations. As well as a balcony to use there are also two gardens to use, the front one having the most beautiful of views! Having been to Paleokastritsa quite a few times before I can honestly say that this has been the best place we have stayed by far and I would definitely recommend them to others. Gemma and Des were warm and friendly and very welcoming. We would definitely stay again, it was perfect for us.

Nearest Airport

Corfu (Kerkyra)
Nearest Ferry

Corfu Town
Car: not necessary


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, snorkelling and watersports. 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.

Excellent facilities are available including a fine selection of swimming pools, restaurants and bars.


Travel information: Useful links for flights from the U.K. to Corfu: Easyjet (London Gatwick, Manchester and Bristol) Ryanair / Jet2 (Newcastle only) Flythomascook / Firstchoice / Airflights, Monarch flightline. Charterflightcentre. Alternative routes available from Athens: Aegean air / Olymic airlines.


Corfu Town is just a 30 minutes drive from 'Elysium' apartments, and simply must be seen when visiting the island. There is a wealth of architectural heritage to be seen reminding visitors of the many nations that have historically fought for the occupancy of the tiny island for thousands of past years due to its strategic location. Although the remaining architecture is largely Venetian, there are still many French and British influences to be found, giving the town a truly cosmopolitan feel.

Further Details:

Visiting Corfu before May 1st: With Easyjet and Ryanair'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 may not be 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 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!
