I was first enticed to Kassiopi by a picture in the Direct brochure many years ago ... 
On arrival (at Dimitrios in Imerolia) we wandered across to the Taverna, which was just closing for the afternoon, and sat down overlooking the sea, out to Albania and just felt 'this is it'. What keeps us going back is mostly the people, the welcome you get, the general feeling of being amongst friends. The food, the weather, the views all help, but mainly it is the people we have met over the years. Locals and tourists who we would never have met otherwise.  Have tried other places occasionally, but nowhere else compares. It just has a magic all of its own

It was pure chance that we first went to Kassiopi. Friends had been to Greek islands many times, so we decided to give it a try.
A bit like Kassi we liked the pictures in the brochures and once there that was it...hooked. Nowhere else has compared to the friendliness and feeling of 'being at home'.
Fingers crossed that we'll be back next year

I always felt that if we could only have one holiday a year then we go somewhere different every time.  That worked OK until we went to Kassiopi!!
 
Went once and that was it - fell in love with the place and now keep going back. It's a mixture of everything that keeps us going back - the people, the place, the food, all the people we meet each year. I think they've put something in the water that draws us all back!!
 
Got back on Monday this week and on Tuesday went and booked up for next year - that says it all!

We took my husbands children when they were 8 and 4 and stayed at Messonghi Beach Hotel. We did the tour of the island and one of the places were stopped at was Kassiopi for a few hours. My husband said at the time that it looked like a nice place to come back for a holiday.
 
A fair few years later we went to our local travel agents to book somewhere last minute and they found us a place - and they had never heard of it - called Kassiopi, we jumped at the chance and ended up staying at a two bedroom apartment just for the two of us. We got to it by going up the road next to Uncle Simos - can't remember the name, and they had a block of apartments one side of the road and another on the other side with the swimming pool and a bar at the end. We had a great time.
 
There is something about the magic of Kassiopi that keeps pulling us back. We have made lots of friends with the locals and when we go there it is just like visiting relations, and to be honest we see a lot of there than we do our own family

We first went on an evening coach trip from Sidari over 20 years ago I guess. Right from the moment we got there and had a drink in a little bar next to Janis, then a meal in Janis. We strolled down to the harbour for another drink before getting the coach back and were hooked.

We've been to Turkey, Menorca and a short visit to Norway and nothing touches Kassiopi. The Bars, Views, Tavernas and most of all the lovely people both locals and visitors that we've met over the years make the place special. I can't see us ever going anywhere else now. 

I sit on the balcony with a glass of wine watching the sun go down, looking across to Imerolia and beyond and thinking that life doesn't get much better than that!!

Long may it continue.

Rich and Cher.
