Achileion palace

The Achilleion Palace is located in the Village of Gastouri, 2.2 km’s away from Bintzan Inn hotel.

Location

Following the national road Corfu – Achilleion and turning left at Ponti, the twisting road ascends through the olive groves to the village of Agios Deka (the 10 Saints), and finally arriving in the village of Gastouri, passing the traditional houses with their attractive flower fill gardens, bougainvillea festooned walls and pergolas awash with color, there is a hint of something special at the end of the road which unfolds itself at the imposing iron gates of the Achilleion Palace, which dominates a hilltop location.

The myth

There, where your imagination is free to run wild, the fairy tale becomes one with reality; good, evil and even the truth become one with the legend. A strange sense of awe overwhelms anyone that gazes over the imposing form of the Palace which dominates the area with its presence, residing between the cypress trees and other exotic plants and flowers which surround it.
