The Ionian Islands region

The Ionian Islands take their name from the sea which lies between the tip of Italy and the west coast of Greece. The Ionians in turn took their name from Ion, after the nymph goddess of the sea. These islands are also known as the Eptanisos - The Seven Islands - of which Corfu is the second largest with a length of 40 miles and a width varying between two and a half and eighteen miles. The North East Cape, where you will find the resort town of Kassiopi, is one and a half miles from the Albanian coast. The shape of the island resembles a scythe with a surface area of 588 square miles.

Corfu

On Corfu, prepare yourselves to enjoy good food and wine, long lazy Taverna lunches, dip into the sea and enjoy complete relaxation. Yet those searching for a little more action will not be disappointed. Corfu is an island of diversity.

St George (Agios Georgios) is situated on the south side of the island and offers around six miles of golden sandy beaches which have been awarded with the blue flag. The northern end of the long sands is known as Issos beach, where you will find sand dunes and a saltwater lagoon, Lake Korrision. To the south are the long sands of the Golden Beach which merges with a string of sandy stretches known as Maltas, Marathias and Santa Barbara. The beaches are wide, have easy-on-the-feet sand and are safely shallow for children with a wide variety of water sports available. The resort is flanked by beautiful olive groves and cypress trees, which offer beautiful scenic nature trails. The main stretch of St George runs parallel to the beach and is where you will find all of the traditional tavernas, cafe’s, bars and shops.

A walk up to Argirades village will reward with astonishing views, lovely cafes and a taste of traditional village life. There are two routes up to the village. Firstly, (if going by car), take the main road out of St George (signed Argirades 4Km). An alternative, on foot, is to take the road at the southern end of the resort just before the Kafesass fish restaurant (signed Argirades 3km) follow the road up past some of the quieter apartments and onto a track through the olive groves.

Lake Korriosn is a nature reserve and home to turtles, lizards and migrating birds. Wide, soft sands appear to run for miles with the lake and sea separated by a narrow strip of dunes and a rough road. The Korrison lake was created by the Venetians who flooded the marshy plain behind by dredging a route to the sea at the northern tip.

There is an endless supply of excursions and boat trips available from the resort, you will find all the details in the travel agents around the resort. St George is perfect for families; young people as well as senior citizens, who enjoy a relaxing holiday experiencing a real taste of the Greek life. St George offers everything and will definitely not disappoint you.
