Trikorfo is a picturesque, traditional village nestling among hilltops, with a very 'off the beaten track' feel, yet it's only 3 mins drive down to the pretty little local village of Anthoussa and only just over 5 minutes drive to the beautiful seaside resort of Parga, which has all the amenities you need for every type of holiday. Trikorfo is a peaceful cluster of village houses, dominated by the 'castle of Ali Pasha', with its intriguing past. If you walk up to this historic site, you will find the views are truly breathtaking, as the landscape tumbles abruptly away through olive-groves, cypress trees and grape-vines down to the dramatic coastlines around Parga. Below Trikorfo is Anthoussa, and above it, perched high on the mountain top, is Agia. Both of these beautiful old villages have small local shops and a variety of friendly traditional tavernas. There are also small, unspoilt beaches to visit, where mostly only the locals go.
If you choose, you can spend your entire holiday immersed in the delights of good old-fashioned Greece, with only very limited contact with modern tourism. If, on the other hand, you do find you have touristic inclinations, you can find absolutely everything you need just 6-7 minutes down the hill, in Parga The beautiful coastal village of Parga is a popular holiday destination, with its cliff-top castle, its island & smaller islets in a bay of turquoise-blue water and its many winding backstreets and little old whitewashed churches. Parga is a captivating integration of ancient and modern. The sea-front restaurants offer an enticing array of cuisine, while tiny local tavernas can be found in the older areas of the town.
There are large sandy beaches with all types of water sports plus scuba diving, fishing trips etc, and also tiny coves accessible only by boat. You will find countless lively bars and nightclubs popular with locals and tourists alike, as well as traditional bars/restaurants with delicious Greek food, music and dancing.
There are, of course, many excursions on offer from Parga: to Paxi/Antipaxi islands, the River Styx (Acheron) and the Oracle of the Dead, the spectacular villages of Zagorahoria, Meteora monasteries, and recently, also Albania. You can visit these places on a group tour, or independently in a hire car.
