The villa is air condtioned and has mosquito blinds fitted to all windows with the exception of the kitchen and bathroom. The villa has tiled floors throughout, lime-washed wooden ceilings complete the light and airy feeling within. Each bedroom has its own patio area..french doors lead you to your own quiet spot furnished with a table and chairs, a great way to start your day and enjoy that early morning coffee before heading for a lazy day of sunbathing at either one of the two golden sandy beaches.

The Ionian Islands region
The six Ionian islands down the west coast of the mainland, float on the haze of the Ionian sea. Dangling between the heel of Italy and the west coast of mainland Greece, Corfu is green and mountainous. Much of the island still consists of olive groves, mountain or woodland. Even in developed resorts unspoiled terrain is often just a few minutes walk away. Temperatures range from 25c in May through to 33c in August.
Corfu is one of the most elegant island capitals in the whole of Greece. Corfu town is a must visit, the town has two distinct areas, the historic centre, enclosed by the old port and the old fort area. Both have great spots to enjoy lunch and coffee after a mornings sightseeing. St George South is approx 32km from Corfu town, if you want to say put for your stay, St George offers everything you could wish for, it has a lovely sandy 12km beach, and offers you a choice of spots each day to enjoy the sun, sand and sea. The beautiful blue sea has a shallow water's edge so great for little ones. The beach offers a range of watersports and the tavernas located directly on the beach offer you great lunches and even a free sunbed. Boat trips are available from the harbour area should you wish to experience the many coves and various beaches around the island itself. Both coach trips and the local bus service operate from St George and offer various routes across and around the island , offering a cheaper way to get out and about should you not wish to hire a car. All of the tavernas within St George, of which there are many, offer great local food and lots of fresh fish. St George offers a relaxing holiday best suited for couples and families. There are no nightclubs in St George, but for those wanting a night at the discos, Kavos is a twenty minute taxi ride away.
Lake Korission is a great local attraction, it is home to turtles, tortoises, lizards, numerous indigenous and migratory birds. There are lots of walks around different trails, the lake is over 5km long and 1km wide. A different kind of water is available at Aqualand, europe's 3rd largest water park, a great day out and coach trips run from st George. Golf is available at Corfu Golf Club, approx 45mins away. The course was designed by Donald Harradine and is great for both scratch players and for those with long handicap. St George is great for cycling as its one of the very few area's of Corfu that is fairly flat.

"lovely villa with helpful owners and caretaker."
great property met all expectations. with all you could hope for to cover all ages. plenty of good restaurants nearby, including panorama, balcony and oceana. Keith the caretaker was extremely kind and helpful. when a problem arose it was dealt with immeadiately. as he lives locally he has a vast knowledge of places to go and visit and restaurants further afield especially the excellent 'Archontiko' up in the hills. friendly people lovely food in the area. Corfu town worth a visit.

"Home from home"
We had a fantastic time here. No one wanted to leave. Everything has been very well thought out.
The villa was spotlessly clean, and nice comfy beds.
Pool was lovely and the kids never got out.
Was great peace of mind with our youngest that the pool area is separated from the patio and rear garden, so we could relax when enjoying the views whilst doing a BBQ.
Close to shops, bars, restaurants and the beach, so car not necessary, but worth getting one for a few days to enjoy the island.
We loved it so much, that we booked it straight away for next year when we got home.
A perfect family villa.

"Fantastic! A home from home."
Villa Camellia was a superb villa to have a holiday, either as a couple or a family. I just wish villas like this had been available when my children were young. The villa was spotless and well equipped with everything you need and the assistance of Keith, who looked after the villa made a huge difference. A great pool, not overlooked by anyone and with plenty of space round about and there was always shade if you need it. The pet tortoises were a bonus. The location was perfect - quiet but a couple of minutes walk and you reached shops and restaurants with great sandy beaches a few minutes further on. Walking or driving a little further took you to quiet stretches of sandy beach where you could have the beach almost to yourself.

"Fantastic villa, perfect family holiday!"
We had an amazing holiday and the villa was just perfect for what we needed for our 6 year old, 3 year old and baby of 3 months. The owners had everything that you possibly would need for a baby or young child so it made things completely stress free. We all loved the pool which was totally private with plenty of floats and toys. The town was a quick 5 min walk and had lots of child friendly restaurants and cafes. We went to beach a couple of times which was about a 10 min walk, but didn't feel the need to go much as we had our own private pool. Keith the property caretaker/manager was great, gave us lots of friendly tips and advice and took us wherever we needed to go eg big supermarket, airport. Overall fantastic and would highly recommend it.

"Fab family holiday - pool and villa terrific!"
Had a wonderful holiday experience from start to finish. Booking was easy and villa owners extremely pleasant and helpful. Villa and pool were great and perfect for a family holiday with young children. The added extras provided within the villa such as beach towels, night lights and toys made for stress free packing. Knowing that there was help on hand in Greece should we require it gave great peace of mind. There are many great resturants in the resort which are extremely child friendly - our 4 yr old was tucking into grilled octopus by the end of the week!

"A wonderful family holiday villa, a home from home with better weather!"
The villa is perfectly situated a few minutes work from the beach and shops and bars. Kerrie and Paul have thought of everything that you need to keep travelling luggage to a minimum and holiday relaxation to the maximum. Our 2 year old son was in his element too with endless indoor and outdoor toys and books.
Kerrie was great with information prior to going and then Keith was great whilst we were at the villa. It was all so good we booked immediately when we returned and I'm sure that visit will not be our last. We never go back to the same place twice but this place was so perfect its broken our rule - an easy holiday with a 2 year old, is definitely a reason for broken rules!!
