Description

The space

The house sleeps 6 with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, and is an idyllic place for a relaxing holiday for all the family. With spacious and open plan rooms, generous windows and stone floor, the house is a cool haven in the heat of summer. Although quiet and peaceful there are boating activities and amenities within a few minutes’ walk, so a car is not essential for those who want the pure beach experience. During summertime you can rent a boat and explore the bay’s headlands of towering cliffs which hide sandy coves and rocky reefs.
Bedrooms:
2 double bedrooms (queen size matrimonial beds) with wooden floor upstairs featuring a balcony with a shaded pergola overlooking the sea and offering stunning views of the bay, each with own bathroom. Pieces of antique furniture blend with minimal modern furniture and offer a relaxing decoration. A twin bedroom downstairs with stone floor and own bathroom.
Bathrooms:
2 bathrooms upstairs, 1 en suite with bath tub and shower, 1 with shower only. Downstairs bathroom en suite with bath tub and shower.
Kitchen:
Very large open plan fully equipped kitchen. Washing machine, fridge/freezer, dish washer, stove, electric kettle, toaster, boiler and iron, kitchenware and anything one may need in order to prepare meals and enjoy the flavors of the local products!
Living Room:
Very spacious open plan sitting room/dining area opening through 3 French doors onto wide veranda with panoramic view of Agios Georgios Bay and the sea. African flavors with Ethiopian handcrafted furniture, Kenyan Kikoi bench sofas and artifacts. Adobe fireplace; stone-paved floor throughout and ceiling fan at the sitting room.

The neighbourhood

Lying tucked away several miles down a twisty road and 30 km from Corfu town, this little resort can be found under several names including Agios Georgios (North), Agios Georgios Pagi, or San George, and is a haven for lovers of a quiet restful holiday. So far the demands of the tourist trade have not spoiled the natural beauty of this delightful bay nor the friendliness of the local people. It should be noted that there is another Corfu holiday resort of the same name in the south of the island.
Set on level land at the mouth of a wide valley between high rocky headlands, this collection of private houses, small hotels, tavernas and some apartments sprawls lazily behind the beach road. You will not find any tall apartment blocks or large self-catering complexes here, just small family run enterprises.
Behind them is countryside of fields, olive groves and wooded hills. The ancient olive trees with their contorted and perforated trunks form a greyish green carpet when viewed from a distance, but the views are made so much more interesting by the dark green colors of the numerous tall, pencil shaped cypress trees.
Certainly not known for vigorous nightlife, Agios Georgios suits families with young children, or couples and individuals of all ages who enjoy restful holidays in beautiful countryside, while at the same time providing endless fun for the kids on the beach or around the hotel pools.
However for stressed out 'workaholics' this is the ideal place as you have no choice but to slow down. Everything goes slow here. For a more lively night life it is easy to take a taxi or car the 12 miles or so to Sidari.
At the superb beach with its crystal clear water you can just relax and enjoy the sun under a beach umbrella, hire a boat or enjoy a variety of water sports.
There is an ample choice of friendly Tavernas, Restaurants, small mini-markets and a few tourists' Gift Shops plus the occasional small quality shops. All are run by friendly local people.
You can hire a Motor Bike or Scooter for the day, or a Mountain Bike (it is hilly or try the water sports available on the beach. Many visitors enjoy walking in this delightful undulating countryside with its shady olive groves and wild flower bordered rural roads.

Getting around

Our favourite "not to be missed" short car trips are to:
• Afionas: This delightful village must not be missed if possible. There are several tavernas with stunning views. Take your pick of an eagle's eye view of Agios Georgios bay with drinks at Dionysos taverna and/or Porto Timoni Cafe; or in the opposite direction the truly beautiful view over the off-shore islands, especially the evening sunsets from The Three Brothers, Panorama or Anemos.
• Pagi village for coffee or drinks at a local greek cafe-bar, and on up through Prinillas via the twisting hill road with its magnificent views to the small village of Makrades, now well known for its souvenir shops and the local residents who leap out into the road waving cars to stop to buy their goods. (If you do stop they will have your door open before you know !)
For a longer trip carry on through Makrades down through Lakones with more superb views over the rocky bays of the famous resort of Paleokastritsa.
