About

The village of Agioi Douloi is a traditional small village of the Corfiot countryside with Venetian houses and picturesque alleys. The village was named because, during the Byzantine period, its inhabitants were slaves who cultivated the area of ​​the church and were called holy gods. Today, an impressive 18th century mansion stands in the center of the village. It is the mansion of the Laskari family, built by local craftsmen under the guidance of the Italian architect Henry Sorresini. At Agioi Douloi you can also visit the Agios Dimitrios Monastery, which is built during the traditional Corfiot architecture. On the road that leads to the Nymphs, you will also find the Pantokratoras Kamarelas Shelter, a female monastery, named after the neighboring source "Kamarela". The Holy Sloans, located in the hinterland, away from tourist areas offer pictures of peace and tranquility to the visitor and deserve a tour of the traditional neighborhoods and alleys of this village. The nearest beach at Agioi Douloi is that of Roda, on the northern coast of the island, about 6 km away. Other nearby beaches are in Sidari and Acharavi, which are large tourist resorts.
