The preferred mode of transport in northern Corfu is the outboard motor boat, providing access to otherwise unreachable scenic bays, hidden beaches and water-front tavernas. Boat life also captures the free-spirit essence of Greek island life; a life of simple pleasures, without constraint.
Close to a mooring perfect for a little boat is Villa Castro. The smart and well put together property is located on the appealing northern coastline of Corfu, just 10 minutes' walk from Kassiopi village and five minutes from a beach and restaurants. Overlooking a small quiet bay on a hillside scattered with olive orchards, the villa sits below the ancient ramparts of a castle ruin, from where walking trails lead in a variety of directions.
Villa Castro is a modern and elegant property with bright and tastefully designed rooms in light colours.
