Hotel Levant

About Hotel Levant

Situated in an area renowned for its natural beauty, 11 km west of Corfu town, the Levant hotel enjoys a splendid position close to the western shore of the island. The property is located on the summit of Pelekas hill and therefore boasts a panoramic view over the surrounding area, allowing magnificent sunrises and sunsets.

The hotel is just a short distance from the unspoilt beaches of the west coast, such as Glyfada, Kontogialos, Myrtiotissa, Ermones and Agios Gordios, while the island's main sights of interest are all within easy reach.

This area has attracted famous visitors over the years, most notably the Empress of Austria, popularly known as Sissi, as well as Kaiser Wilhelm of Germany. Before Sissi built Achillion Palace in 1890 on Corfu’s east coast, she had tried to buy the land on which the Levant Hotel now stands. She bought the deeds from a local land owner but it turned out that the land hadn’t been his to sell! After Sissi’s assassination in 1898, Achillion was sold to Kaiser Wilhelm. He, too, fell in love with the view of the sunset from the summit of Pelekas and, when in Corfu, he was driven from Achillion every evening to sit and watch the sun sink into the sea. This location is now known as “Kaiser’s Throne” and has the best panoramic views in Corfu.
