The Mantouki neighbourhood is situated between Panagia Platytera and the port, just 500 m. from Saroko square. Most of its houses were built during the 17th and 18th centuries, following the traditional Venetian architecture. It is crossed by stone and paved pathways. Along the streets, there are some taverns, cafeterias, a mini market, a butchery as well as an elementary school.
Anytime you want, you can take a glance at the cosmopolitan aura of Corfu, in a distance of just 1,5 km. Corfu is far more than its trademark blue-hued seas and sandy coastline. An UNESCO world heritage site, Renaissance, Baroque and Classical “gamut” came to be successfully applied to local artistic traditions. Palaces and fortresses of the Venetian rule uniquely blend in the frame of tiny alleyways and small secluded squares. Stroll through the fascinating old town, admire historical sites, visit museums, hike across forested hills, walk around the traditional villages and indulge in hearty local dishes.
Corfu Airport (CFU) is just a 5 min drive.
