"I have wandered all my life, and I have also travelled; the difference between the two being this, that we wander for distraction, but we travel for fulfillment."
Hilaire Belloc (1870-1953)
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 breathtaking sunrises and sunsets.
Built in neo-classical style the hotel offers twenty-five romantically decorated rooms all with a view, spacious bathroom, TV and mini bar. It also boasts a lounge, café, swimming pool and an extensive terrace overlooking the Ionian Sea.
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. Only 4 km away there is an 18-hole golf course and Aqualand water park is also nearby. The structure offers modern comforts and services, as well as a number of sport and entertainment facilities.
The Levant Hotel welcomes groups. Our facilities lend themselves to groups looking for something a little special. In recent years we have attracted groups of artists, chamber musicians and yoga enthusiasts. If you are a tour leader or member of a group please contact us to find out about our special group rates and individually prepared packages.
"For the past eight years the Levant Hotel Pelekas, Corfu has been the base for the Australian operated Corfu Discovery Tour for Artists. The Levant Hotel has provided excellent accommodation and meals for the groups two week stay. Many of our tour members stated that the Levant Hotel with its tastefully decorated interior, personalized service and the hotels beautiful setting the best they have ever experienced. A perfect start to the day is breakfast on the kitchen garden terrace and culminating with dinner on the upstairs terrace watching sunset as the sun slides into the Adriatic. With only twenty four rooms the Levant provides the intimate quality of a boutique hotel where you are a valued guest not just a room number. Run as a family hotel this offers a relaxed accommodation and quality service that is fast disappearing with the pressures of large package tour operations."

"This family-run boutique hotel is in a superb setting overlooking the west coast with its majestic cliffs and superb long sandy beaches and the east amazing views of Corfu Town, most of the east coast and across to Greek mainland. We all spent a lot of time on the terrace especially at sunset – this was spectacular. Our group of seventeen Chamber Musicians from seven different countries ranged in age from retired to two delightful girls not yet in their teens. Everyone appreciated the exclusive and intimate ambience where one is a guest not a room number. The family became friends and nothing was too much trouble and we were all sorry to leave, especially the girls who were in floods of tears! The communal areas of the hotel have lovely paintings and antiques, reflecting the owner’s interest in history and culture. As several in our group were amateur musicians they were delighted to be able to play in the family chapel, a memorable experience. We never felt our music was a nuisance, quite the opposite. On some evenings while playing in one of the rooms off the terrace other guests would come and listen. We all enjoyed the wonderful home cooked meals with fresh local produce. I would thoroughly recommend the Levant."
