Where can you buy property in east and northeast Corfu?
A range of properties are regularly available in east and northeast Corfu – at any given time, you might find villas, apartment complexes or plots of land.
You’ll be guided by your particular plans, but knowing a little about different areas can also help you choose carefully.
Buying property in Kassiopi can be a good move for anyone who wants to be based in a wonderful whitewashed harbour village that offers great restaurants, wonderful walking trails and picture postcard views of Mount Pantokrator. It doesn’t have its own beach, but several are situated a stone’s throw away and it’s a manageable hour’s drive from Kerkyra and the airport.
But for something a little different, Nisaki is a nice alternative. This small fishing village is located 21km north of Corfu Town and is blessed by several pretty pebble beaches which you reach by wandering through olive groves. Sit in a Taverna sipping a Mythos beer and watch the fishing vessels and tourist boats gliding gently across the bay – bliss!
Meanwhile, Avlaki is another picturesque peninsula where you can buy property in east Corfu and it’s an ideal location for anyone who appreciates a sweeping bay and unspoilt beauty. It’s not nearly as busy as the major tourist areas but it hosts an excellent riding school and might be the right spot for another laid-back leisure venture.
