Holiday Rental House
Villa Giovannina is owned by the great grand- daughter of Giovannina herself. As a young girl, she came to live at the Achillion Palace with her parents, who were part of the entourage of the empress. Her father was the captain of her yacht and her mother was in charge of the palace and all the servants. She married and her children grew up running and playing in the palace gardens. They continued to live there during the Kaiser’s occupation of the Achillion until the beginning of WW2, when they left to live in Alexandria. In 1960 her son and grand- son returned to Corfu and built this villa, where she spent her final years, enjoying the tranquility and remembering times gone by. The villa has been transformed by a complete restoration program providing an environment of the highest stand...Villa Giovannina is owned by the great grand- daughter of Giovannina herself.

About the neighbourhood
Paleokastritsa is chiefly memorable for the exceptional scenery along with the superb beaches. The cool crystal waters are ideal for swimming and water sports. On most of the beaches there are taxi boats, sun beds, umbrellas, motor boats, and canoes for rent. It is well worth to visit all the beaches (About 15, most reached only by boat) in the around area by boat and see also the famous Paleokastritsa caves. For the really active, the rocks, the caves and the crystal water provide great points for diving. Paleokastritsa enjoys a spectacular setting on six (6) small-enclosed bays with crystal turquoise water.
