KASTOS Village IONIAN ISLANDS

Overview

The village of Kastos is built around the harbour in an amphitheatre pattern. The houses, most of which are boarded up, are very spread out on large plots of land and surrounded by olive trees, giving a feel of comfort and openness. They are all two-storey, made of stone and with red-tiled roofs and wooden window-shutters painted in different colours. Many of these houses have large balconies with large doors leading onto them. This picture exudes the comfort of earlier days, and a visitor who comments that it is reminiscent of Greece in the 1960s would be quite justified. The village has a few restaurants which specialise in seafood, serving the fresh fish trawled up by the island's fishermen. A proper water supply system was recently installed on Kastos, thus easing the lives of the residents.
