Situated northwards of Paleokastritsa, on the far West coast of Corfu, is Afionas, a small village with about 300 permanent residents. It is one of the highest located coastal towns of the island, approximately 300 meters high. In ancient times there were sentries here, set up to monitor any hostile invaders and if necessary warn the next link in the safety chain (Angelokastro) by beacons.
You always wanted to know what it is like to live at the thirtieth floor of a skyscraper? This is your chance! Needless to say magnificent views abound in Afionas. Afionas is so uniquely situated that it would be a shame if you didn’t visit this very quiet but picturesque village at least once during your vacation on Corfu.
