We stayed at Angels Pool from 6th – 15th June 2012. Every aspect was fabulous! Angela is the friendliest, warmest, happiest host you could hope to meet! She’s lovely to chat to and nothing is too much trouble. Her BBQ night was great fun, mountains of delicious food followed by Greek dancing and a live guitarist. The bar is light, airy and welcoming, and Angela’s home cooked food was stunning. Our room was fresh, clean and adequately equipped – we stayed in Angela’s winter bedroom – the bathroom was excellent with a large corner bath and hand held shower. A big plus point of the room was the insect netting over the bathroom window and the insect netting blind that could be pulled down over the patio doors, this meant we could leave the window/doors open for ventilation without getting eaten alive. We didn’t have a balcony but our bedroom opened out onto the pool area where we had very comfortable loungers (with padded covers) and a parasol right outside the door. The pool area is perfect - it’s not huge but as there aren’t many guest rooms it never busy. The pool and patio are very clean and everything feels well looked after and cared for. Angela’s place is a couple of minutes walk up a steep hill, but you soon get used to this, and it’s nice to be away from the main road.
Paleokastritsa – WOW! What an absolutely stunning place with truly beautiful scenery. We did a couple of walks through the olive groves on old mule paths to Lakones, the village above, where the views are spectacular, breathtaking! As you would expect, there are plenty of boat trips to take, including BBQs and a glass bottomed boat “The Yellow Submarine”!
Paleokastritsa is a long resort with plenty of restaurants and bars all being quite low key. This is definitely a place to relax and recharge – if you want a clubbers’ paradise it’s not for you. We particularly enjoyed eating at O Miraklis Grill, where the food was extremely tasty and reasonably priced with melt in your mouth souvlaki and heavenly moussaka! Our favourite bar was the Pergola Café bar – delicious cocktails and a very warm welcome from the friendly owners. It is well worth a walk to the Belvedere restaurant that overlooks the harbour – here we ate the most tender Kleftiko imaginable surrounded by beautiful views. Another bar of note is La Grotta, a descent down steep steps to a cliff-side bar for drinks, ambience and glorious location above the craggy bay.
We’ve visited several places in Corfu and this has definitely been our favourite. I’ve never really understood why people want to go back to the same place year after year and not experience as much of the world as possible… but now I’ve found my little slice of paradise, I will definitely return to Paleokastritsa as often as I can, in fact if I could only ever holiday in one place again, this would be it!
