Kassiopi Studios Corfu Island

Kassiopi which was traditionally a fishing village is situated on the north east coast of Corfu, right opposite the port town of Saranda in Albania, of which it has a close view. Due to its location in a beautiful setting of luscious green hilly landscape, an old fort overlooking the picturesque harbour and plenty of easily accessible beaches, it has in the later years developed into a much sought-after tourist resort.

Kassiopi offers a range of activities to visitors, the village itself offers many facilities and there is easy access to Corfu town either by bus or by boat. It is a place where tourist may enjoy a relaxed carefree holiday. There are numerous options for day excursions, car or boat rental, eating or drinking out, souvenir shopping, internet cafes, supermarkets, a child’s playground, and the quaint little village church welcomes all. You may also find a cash machine, travel agencies, a doctor and a pharmacy should you need one.


The road runs through the edge of the town, and a loop takes the local bus as far as the village square, some 229 m from the harbour. In an attempt to alleviate the traffic density that occurred within the village narrow roads, a Car and Coach Park is provided at the top of the town. A free 'Land Train' operates a daytime shuttle service between the car-park and the Harbour, with various stops on the journey. One or two taxis running 24 hours a day all over the island, are based here. Both town and country are very safe, at all times of the day and the crime rate has remained consistently low for the whole north-east coast.


The town is said to have been founded during the reign of Pyrrhus of Epirus, King of Epirus in the 3rd Century BC, as a supply post during his war with Rome. After the Roman conquest of the island in 230 BC, many Emperors visited, most prominently Emperor Nero, who visited a Temple to Zeus here.


Much of a small headland to the north of the resort is taken up by a Byzantine castle. The castle was subsequently fortified further by the Venetians, and survived sieges from the Ottoman Turks in the 16th century. Today the castle is mainly ruinous, but parts of the walls can be seen from the coastal road around the headland.
Many of the houses were stone built until the 1960s. Electricity arrived in the same year. Vehicles arrived in the 1970s, the pavement of the main road and television arrived in the 1980s and computer and internet have only been present in the last 10 years.
