How to Find Us?

The shelter can be accessed from the National Paleokastritsa Road only. It is about 20 km from Corfu Town and 6 km away from Paleokastritsa. It is also possible to come by bus if you do not mind walking the last 1,1 km. If you are travelling with kids or elderly people we do not recommend you come by bus as the main street is very busy and has no pavement.
From the south
Head north on the Paleocastritsa main road. Approximately 2 km before the village of Doukades is a Villa Alexandra (a pink building) on the right-hand side. Turn right immediately after it (if you see a kiosk on your left-hand side or a sign for Liapades/Giannades you have gone a little too far). Follow the tarmac road then take the 2nd track on the left. At the tiny orange house turn right and follow to the end of the track. Map.
From the north
If coming from Paleocastritsa head south to town. About 2km after the BP Petrol station at Doukades after a large left S bend in the road, there will be Villa Alexandra on the left-hand side. Turn left immediately before it, follow the tarmac road then take the 2nd track on the left. At the tiny orange house turn right and follow to the end of the track. 


Public transportation
If you come from Corfu Town (Kerkyra), take the green bus direction Paleokastritsa. If you come from Paleokastritsa, take the green bus direction Corfu Town (Kerkyra). Ask the bus driver to drop you off at "Zomeno" (the kiosk close to the crossing to Liapades). If you miss this stop, then get off at Doukades, which is the next bus stop. Walk the main road in direction Corfu Town until you see Villa Alexandra. From there just follow the map. From Villa Alexandra the distance to walk is 1.1km. There are signposts at regular intervals along the way and we try to keep them visible at all times. Please do not come by bus if you are traveling with kids or elderly people, the main road is very busy and has no pavement.

You can also reach the sanctuary by taxi. You can ask any taxi to bring you here, but because we do not have details of the cost of taxis from the various resorts, port or airport, better agree on the price before you travel. Taxis will only take you as far as the beginning of the dirt track which means you would need to walk the last 400m to reach us.
