Paleokastritsa ( Corfu ) is located on the west coast, is one of the most famous resort towns on the island. The cliffs cutting into the sea, the verdant green of olive and cypress trees, the six small bays and the crystal clear water make the village one to remember. The area has all that you need for a relaxing holiday – restaurants and shops, cafes and bars and incredible nearby beaches. A must see is the Byzantine Monastery, the Virgin Mary Palaiokastritissa that was built on an old castle. A drive up Mount Istoni unveils traditional small villages and an unbelievable view of the entire area.
