Fabulous villa, with wonderful views
The property was beautiful and in a very convenient location to reach all the amenities. We all had a great time and would stay again. Keleigh and Yiannis were very helpful before and during our stay. The maid service was also very good with several visits over the week. Overall a lovely relaxing experience.
Thank you, the Craig and Dailly family.
Excellent villa Christos
Location is perfect easy walk to Kassiopi centre for shops and excellent restaurants and the picturesque harbour. Something for all ages so if travelling with a family group like us everyone is happy! The villa is beautiful a lovely large pool and seating area. There are four bedrooms, the master bedroom has amazing views to the bay even from the bathroom window and a large balcony again with amazing views. We were met by the owners on arrival, very attentive and helpful. We would absolutely recommend this villa it ticked all the boxes for us we didn't want to leave and would definitely return we loved it!
The North-East coast quite famously known as 'Kensington-on-sea' is a delight to all visitors and the lovely village of Kassiopi is one of those delights. It provides a satisfying array of amenities to suit everyone in your group - young or old. From an offering of both traditional and international cuisine to lively or leisurely bar culture to invigorating walks of castle ruins, coast and protected wildlife eco-areas - the variety of choice makes Kassiopi quite cosmopolitan.
Kassiopi's village centre is an 8 minute walk away from Villa Christos (but only 4 minutes via a small footpath). Kassiopi harbour is reachable in an easy 3 minute walk. Once down in the village you can find plenty of things you may need or want: restaurants, bars, tourist and boutique shops, supermarkets, car-hire, yellow submarine centre, excursion/exchange offices, computer access, pharmacy, playground plus more.
A personal recommendation for something to do whilst in Kassiopi would be to hire a boat from the harbour and sail around the coast, casting anchor at one of the many pretty little coves for a swim or mooring at a jetty for a spot of lunch. The Durrell's White House and Rothschild's castle are within an easy sail away...
We are blessed with a beautiful coastline and there does not exist a better way to explore.
Both boat and coach excursions run straight from the village too. Why not enjoy a relaxing East coast cruise or, going West, have fun on the sandy beach BBQ trip? (The closest sandy beach is just 6 minutes drive away and is super safe for children)
Alternatively for those who wish to kick back and do nothing, Kassiopi and it's residents laid-back feeling makes for the perfect backdrop. A quaint small cove for dipping into the sea is only 4 minutes walk behind the villa and the main beach is just 7 minutes walk. There are a few equally beautiful small coves along the headland of Kassiopi that are worth an exploration...all within easy walking distance. Being on the North-East coast of Corfu, the seas here are free from dangerous currents and flaunt blue-flag status.
The harbour of Kassiopi is overlooked by the partially restored Byzantium Castle. You are treated to some spectacular views of Kassiopi if you walk the inside parameters of the castle and walking the outside parameters along the headland, views across the sea to the Albanian coasltine. Worth the walks!
Kassiopi plays host to some beautiful celebrations troughout the year and it is at these times that you really feel the community spirit and authentic Greek culture come alive. Notable festivals include May Day, May 8th 'panagia' in celebration and remembrance of the Great Miracle in 1530, May 21st celebrating the unification of the Ionian Islands, August 15th in celebration of the assumption of Mary and October 28th celebrating 'Oxi' (no) Day. Often these days would be highlighted with parades, marching bands, live music, fireworks and greek dancing. Plus lots of merry Greek locals!
In booking Villa Christos you are dealing with the owners of the villa who live within the village and are therefore able to offer great tips, advice and contacts for whatever you may wish to do once in Kassiopi. Most important thing: enjoy your holiday in our village because it's a very special, beautiful place.
