Before our trip to Lefkada last summer, I looked for other comments for Castro Maistro and I was pretty convenient to book it. Most of the pictures and reviews were taken before renovation of Castro, so we were REALLY amazed when we arrived to Ag.Ioannis! The location of Castro, just under a cliff where a beautiful monastery is situated, (but don't worry, You can hardly hear the church bells!) and a PANORAMIC WIEW from the room terrace over Lefkada and open sea, across the distant island of Kerkira and the mainland..
In most cases, in Greece allround (by personal experience) I was always disturbed with Vespas and other traffic noises.. in Kastro, THIS IS NOT THE CASE. :)
The rooms are nice, the staff is helpful and cooperative, we were really impressed when Nikos organized once a barbecue near the pool, A GREEK NIGHT with good music and with excellent troop of folklore dancers. To see a big guy, dancing on the top of A wine glass, it is spectacular. My only regret is the distance from the Ai.Iannis beach, when you are coming back (by foot) around the lunch time..
Afterall, you can choose one of a MILLION beaches around Lefkada, specially on the west coast.. Kathisma was our favorite.
Can't wait any more for next vacation!!!
