Corfu holidays, part of the Ionian Islands just west of mainland Greece, remains the most popular Greek island for the British tourist to visit, and hordes arrive every year lured by the cheap package deals, fantastic beaches, lively nightlife and the shortest flight time from the UK (3 hours).
Kassiopi is a charming town on the north-east corner of the island of Corfu, 22 miles north of Corfu Town and Corfu airport. A holiday in Kassiopi has the magnificent backdrop of Mount Pantokrator and hills covered with olive groves, vines and citrus plantations. Kassiopi is a colourful place reached by picturesque coast roads. There are views out to sea to the Albanian coast.
Kassiopi holidays offer a satisfying array of possibilities from lively bar culture to relaxed bathing and people watching. Despite being an established resort, Kassiopi still retains something of its fishing village past and its importance in ancient history. Fisherman still work from the harbour alongside flashier modern boats.
Kassiopi harbour with its little square is today the focal point of the town's social life by day and a pretty trendy place by night. But Kassiopi has plenty of quieter calmer bars and restaurants, the latter a mix of tourist and traditional, with particularly good fresh fish thanks to Kassiopi fishermen. Kassiopi holidays are deservedly popular with young visitors, teenagers and groups, but without the excesses of some of the more notorious party spots in Greece. Parents of fun-loving teenagers can easily find peace, quiet and beauty within a short walk of Kassiopi centre.
