A picturesque and famous village, built on top of a hill in midland Corfu.

Wilhelm II, emperor of Germany , who bought the Achilleion  palace after the death of Empress Sissy in the early 20th century, would come to this village to contemplate the view from the top of the hill and enjoy the sunset .

Thanks to the sunset and to the picturesque village and the beautiful nearby beaches (Glyfada, Kondogialos, Gialiskari), Pelekas was one of the first places in Corfu to have developped tourism.
