The Ionian Islands region
The island of Corfu is the most northerly of the Ionian Islands which lie just off the West coast of Greece. It is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful of all the Greek Islands, owing in part to the 2 million olive trees which were planted by the Venetians during their long rule of the Island. The mild Mediterranean climate has also shaped the beguiling landscape of profuse wildflowers in spring and autumn, classical cypress trees and, of course, the ubiquitous olive.
The Island's main Town is now a World Heritage site. It was largely built by the ruling Venetians in the 16th century and embellished by the French in the 19th century. The English legacy includes a cricket pitch, where occasional matches are still played.
Corfu is surrounded by a varied & beautiful coastline with high cliffs, secluded pebbled coves, some of which can only be reached by boat and also long sandy beaches.
Corfu Town is a fascinating, cosmopolitan place & the daily boat trips from Kassiopi provide the perfect way to visit.
There are many beachside tavernas in the local area offering a variety of traditional dishes.
Kassiopi also boasts several tavernas and restaurants offering a more international cuisine and it is well served by several small supermarkets. There is also a good range of bars and cafes catering for a wide age range of clientel.
An excellent spa Health Centre is nearby as is a Water Park. Another, larger Water Park is 50 minutes drive away near Corfu town.
Both from the villa itself and also within a short drive, there are many wonderful walks, both coastal and mountainous.
