We had a lovely 11 days stay at yhe villa Calypso in Nissaki. We don't mind the rustic look of the interior since the gorgeous views and the easy nearby beaches as well as the lovely small harbour with good restaurants makes up for it. We so used the pool with great views as far as Corfy town(Kerkyra).Would come again! Thank you for hospitality
Nisaki is only a very small village, extended from the slopes of mount Pantokrator all the way down to the sea and it is located on the celebrated northeast coast of Corfu Island, a meret 25 kms from Corfu Town.
Nisaki, in the Greek language, means: "small island" and it is believed that took its name from the small island, which existed in its bay. Years ago, the locals used to work on this island, shaping stones and rocks for building, brought to them by boats. After many years, the chippings falling into sea formed a ramp and eventually joined the land. Now, there is a narrow road running between the old island, where a couple of Tavernas are standing and the mainland. Lately, a jetty was constructed, linking it permanently to the coast.
The main village of Nisaki was emerging on the hill, above this inlet, where a church, a school, a small cafe and the village's first houses were located.
In nowadays the village on its own is quite sporadic and has got no main centre. The main part of the village is alongside and upward the main coastal road. Above the main road there are 2-3 winding lanes that go up high, through olive groves and eventually join Nisaki with the top of Mount Pantokrator.
Hundreds of luxury villas adorn the slopes of the Mountain, providing spectacular views and making Nisaki, overall, a very popular resort, a car is recommended due to the elevated location of most properties.
Nissaki is still an un-commercialized resort, but with unbelievable scenery and amazing viewpoints promising a truly memorable holiday. It is a tranquil village, ideal for family holidays, elderly couples and people who love traditional Greece. Young couples are also welcome, as the area offers a choice of nightlife just a few kilometers further up, in Kassiopi and / or Ipsos. The main Nissaki beach area is small but elegant waterside tavernas are simply perfect to while away time gazing out to the stunning scenery of the rugged Albanian mountains beyond the Corfu Channel and sparkling Ionian Sea.
