About George Sotiropoulos
I live in Kenya, I'm half Greek and I built this house in 2008 on land that I inherited. I have known the Agios Georgios beach since I played there as a child; it is beautiful and very close to my heart. I tried to build a house that feels peaceful, spacious and soaks in the spectacular views of the bay, and I love being there with my family.
George Sotiropoulos purchased this House in 2008

Little piece of heaven!
Absolutely fabulous place with all the amenities of home. George was fantastic with the check-in process and the welcome food and drink was very much appreciated. The layout of the house was great and the two balconies provided amazing views of Agios Georgios beach.
The beds were very comfortable and the water pressure in the showers fantastic. They had a good selection of books to read and the chairs for the beach were well used!
The only pain in the butt for the week were the bees....not much the owner can do about that...but something you should take into consideration if you are allergic to bee stings.
One suggestion would be to improve the lighting along the driveway and the stairs going down to the lower part of the yard. Our iPhones came in handy as flashlights on several occasions!
Overall it was money well spent on a great week in a lovely home!
Gorgeous, spacious villa with lovely views.
Everything about this villa was lovely: room size, comfort, spaciousness, equipment in the kitchen, lovely garden. It's a bit more built up than the picture shows, but this is not a problem because the house is still very private and a minute's walk from the beach. The house is five minutes walk from a little supermarket, several simple and very satisfactory restaurants and a bus stop that you can use to get to Corfu town (in just over an hour). Really good value. One thing: we ended up not having a car and didn't need it. I would hesitate to drive there for the first time at night. The road is quite challenging. We were glad to use a taxi and the bus.
Absolutely first rate!
This place was superb, I felt so much at home, just delightful!
Thank you for your kind words and for taking the time to share. Hope to see you again soon!
Sehr schönes Strandhaus mit traumhafter Aussicht
Wir waren mit 3 Kindern und 3 Erwachsenen dort und haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Wir haben eine ausführliche Einweisung bekommen, einschließlich Ausflugs- und Restauranttipps. Der Ausblick von den beiden Terrassen ist sehr schön und man hört überall im Haus das Meeresrauschen. Für einen Urlaub mit Kindern sehr gut geeignet. Nur durch eine kleine Straße getrennt gibt es direkt vor dem Haus einen schönen Strand. Im April haben im Dorf noch die meisten Restaurants und Läden geschlossen, es ist sehr schön ruhig und der Strand meist menschenleer.
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience! Hope to have the chance to welcome you again in the future!
Ein wirklich angenehmer Aufenthalt
Ein großzügiges sehr gepflegtes Haus.
Wir sind mit sechs Erwachsenen angereist und herzlich empfangen worden.
Für den ersten Hunger und Durst wurde liebevoll vorgesorgt.
Mitte September ist die Atmosphäre in der Bucht sehr entspannt und die kleine Straße zwischen Haus und Strand stört überhaupt nicht.
Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt.
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.
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 kms 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.
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.
