Anne and Colin -- July 2015
We returned from Corfu on Friday,
having had a really fabulous holiday at Yiannis apartments. We found Yiannis
and Eleni to be wonderful hosts and our son Nathan loved them and their cat
too. The ice creams Eleni gave him for breakfast on all almost daily basis did
prove to be a huge hit with a 5 yo :) We will definitely return to the area
again, we had a superb holiday and really did not want to come home! It was
amazing to find such an unspoilt part of Corfu.
Caroline -- July 2014
We had a lovely time. We took the
two girls and they loved the resort. They went to the beach every day to top up
their tans and met up with us in the evening at feeding time! The apartment was
perfect and very reasonably priced - just what we needed.
Easy Jet fights
were really impressive. Taxi driver was waiting at the airport. Yiannis was
waiting to greet us at the apartment. He is so lovely and kept giving us
We did walks 1, 3, 4, 5 - they were all clear a well
described. We got tired but not lost! Loved the Fisherman's Cabin and Afionas
and managed to get to those two little beaches - amazing. We walked to Jimmy's
in Pagi. Everyone was so friendly.
I would like to think that we would
return some day and would definitely recommend Yiannis Studios and Agios
Sophie -- July 2014
We enjoyed our stay and we
appreciated Yianni's apartments. It is a good place very quiet. We enjoyed the
beach, the sea and the fresh fish in a taverna. The weather was very good and
we are thinking to go back next year perhaps
Honey -- Sep 2013
Myself and my partner stayed at
Yiannis's apartments during the first 2 weeks of September 2013. We had
booked a studio but when we arrived, Yiannis was there to greet us, and said he
had upgraded us to one of the apartments, which happened to be free during the
time of our stay. So we ended up with a 2 bed apartment on the first
floor, with balconies, for only 30 euros per night, which is a bargain!
The apartment itself was clean and had everything you might need, including a
coffee maker. Yiannis was warm and charming, and gave us bags of
tomatoes, figs and grapes from his lovely garden. Eleni cleaned the
apartment and changed the bed linen and towels 4 times during the 2
weeks. She also left fresh flowers - even on our pillows, which was
lovely. I enjoyed the peace and quiet of the apartments. It takes 15
minutes to walk to the beach, so it is away from the rest of the resort and
offers a change from the beach atmosphere. There were often buzzards
flying overhead, so that was an extra treat on the walk to the beach in the
As for the resort itself, the beach is plenty big enough to give
everyone room without being right next to each other. We visited Arillas
and Agios Stefanos, and noticed that people were much closer together on those
beaches. Agios Georgios beach is long, and there are several different
lounger/parasol hirers along the length of it. Prices varied from 5 to 10
euros, so definitely worth asking and trying different ones - the most
expensive are not necessarily the best! And of course, there is plenty of
room to just take your own towel and parasol and pick your own spot!
There are lots of cafes along the beach road, so again plenty to choose
from. The atmosphere in the cafes does change - some are more formal and
others more quirky, but by and large the menu is the same. I would recommend
taking the green bus to Corfu Town for the day - it is a scenic drive, the
drivers are friendly and it was a nice day out - and the fare is very cheap. If
you are looking for a quiet beach resort where you can relax in the (very hot
in september!) sun and swim every day, then Agios Georgios is ideal. It
feels very friendly and safe, and the people that run cafes, shops and
accommodation are welcoming and helpful.
Sarah -- Aug 2013
Yannis and Eleni were very nice
and the apartment great. Fresh figs from the garden for breakfast. We did not
want to be sealed in with air-con so we asked for a fan which we kind of
shared. As they have mosi netting at the windows fans are nicer, two would have
been perfect. We took a mosi net for our daughters bed as she gets bitten a
lot. She needed this. It was a very easy and relaxing holiday
Audrey -- Aug 2013
Paradise is my word for
Agios Georgios! Such a little haven of clean beach, good food and sun!
We loved the apartments and I especially liked being in such a green space and
seeing the stars from the balcony. We went to Greek dancing night at local
hotel which was fun.
Stephanie -- Aug 2013
We had a lovely holiday and
really enjoyed ourselves. The apartment was just right and Eleni and Yiannis
are very generous and friendly. Being able to sit in their garden is a treat,
alongside picking figs from the tree, the freshest cucumbers and lemons from
the garden ever and watching geckos scurry about.
I think Yiannis and Eleni
keep the apartments in beautiful condition and to meet them and talk to them
rather than have a faceless corporate holiday apartment made it for us. The
boys loved the sea and snorkelling, geckos in the garden and had been
requesting to visit Corfu since reading My family and Other Animals by Gerald
Durrell which we read again whilst there - and although we didn't see loads of
wildlife we saw enough to keep them happy. I'd like to go earlier in the season
to be able to do longer walks without the heat.
James -- July 2013
We had an absolutely amazing
holiday. The apartment was perfect and Yiannis and Eleni couldn't have been
nicer and more welcoming (especially when we got lost between Pagi and Agios
Georgios on arrival)........ It was well worth getting off the main tourist
circuit in Corfu.
Jana -- June 2013
...... it was so nice. And
the studios so cosy and the garden really beautiful. We enjoyed it very much.
The weather was not hot - maximally 25 - and the sea temperature quite low (19)
but we were hiking every day and sitting on the seaside, listening to a
changeable song of the sea. And the new colours, sweet smell, unknown sounds,
...Yoghurts, butter, goat´s cheeses and the fresh fruit from
Yannis´garden... Everything made us happy. Thanks! Unfortunately we
didn´t meet Eleni for the whole week, but Jannis was very thoughtful,
hospitable and at the same time tactful.
Philip -- Sep 2012
...... we have a marvellous week
in Corfu. Yannis and his wife were most helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed our
stay on the island -managed to clock up a few miles exploring as well.
Uta and Sandro -- May 2012
Me and my boyfriend booked
our holiday stay at Corfu at "Yiannis' Studios". We were sleeping in a nice
little studio which has been cleaned by Eleni every three days. We always have
got new towels and beddings as well as fresh flowers. This studio was very
clean and almost like it was made for us. :) Therefore we felt very, very well
there. Yiannis and Eleni are loveable and heartwarming people who are caring
about their guests every time. They were always asking for our wishes and needs
and were doing their best to fulfill them. We wanted for nothing... But the
most beautiful thing at "Yiannis' Apartments" has been his wonderful garden
which has been balm for the soul. We had hundreds of blooming flowers, huge
palm trees, orange trees, figs and grapes and everything you can imagine.
Therefore we have always been very happy to return to our wonderful
accommodation after a long straining walking day trip over the island. There we
could charge our batteries... :) This holiday has been the best two weeks we
have had in the last nine years and we will feed on this a very, very long
time...! We are very glad to have met these lovely people because they have
made our stay very wonderful and special. We just loved this beautiful garden
with its flowers and fruits and Yiannis' bees which he is so proud of...
Yiannis and Eleni have been that kind and friendly to us. We thank them for
everything they have done for us and we are still missing them in our hectic
and nervous working life in the major city of Berlin.
Linda -- Sep 2011
We had an absolutely amazing
time. Yiannis and Eleni could not have been kinder or more welcoming - such
lovely, lovely people. The apartment was just lovely and the gardens so
beautiful - we could not have been happier with any accommodation. Agios
Georgios was lovely and all of your recommendations were perfect.
Sarah -- Aug 2011
We had a very nice time in
Corfu, and Yiannis and Eleni were absolutely lovely and very kind to us! If you
speak to them again soon, then please pass on our best wishes to
Chiara -- Aug 2011
Yes, we're very happy to spend
our holiday to Agios Georgios and to Yannis's apartments. We were good
surprised for the hospitality and spontaneity of people. The village too is
fantastic...Angelo's taverna, the seaside, the peace, the nature. We spoke with
our friends about Agios Georgios and we hope to do good advertising. I hope
that Greece will overcome soon the crisis. A big hug to Yannis
Fiona -- Jun 2011
We had a fantastic, relaxing time
in Yiannis's spotless apartment. Yiannis and Eleni could not have been more
helpful, plying us with lemons from the orchard, cucumbers and figs. They were
very friendly without being intrusive and we looked forward to seeing Yiannis
every night when we returned from the beach. We had fresh flowers in the
apartment, then flowers on our pillows when unexpectedly Eleni changed our
sheets, cleaned floors etc mid week----the place was spotless. I would
thoroughly recommend Yiannis place to anyone wanting a chilled, relaxed break.
Rob Dilks -- Jun 2010
We stayed in a studio in Yiannis'
apartments in late May 2010.We had already been to Agios Georgios a couple of
times and loved the place and it's surroundings. The web site cannot fully
convey the peace and quiet of the studios, nor the attactiveness of the garden,
and this despite them being only 10 minutes away from the supermarket, tavernas
and a superb long beach. The beach has an excellent water sports facility, to
either use watch.
Yiannis and Eleni are unobtrusive but charming and very
generous hosts. They organised our transfers to and from the airport. As to the
language, Yiannis' command of English is good and he will readily correct your
Greek, if you give it a try. The walks in the countryside are as easy or as
hard as you want to make them, but always full of the best that nature can
offer; flowers, lizards, birds and scenery. And at night there is a good range
of tavernas offering a wide selection of Greek and international food. There's
no 'englisshe' pub or union jack shorts within sight!
All in all for this
pair of very active 60 year olds it was on of the very best holidays we have
Laura Vernier -- Sep 2009 Treviso,
I'm Laura Vernier from

thanks. bye bye

Dear Mr and Mrs Pithamitsis
We enjoyed our
holidays in Corfu very much. Thank you for being so friendly and helpfull and
for all the delicious fruits and the flowers.
Erika -- Aug 2008
We had an
absolutely fabulous time. The apartment and situation were fantastic and
Yiannis and Eleni so welcoming and hospitable. Weather was good, gradually
getting warmer as the holiday progressed. We enjoyed the beach and hired a boat
one day and pottered about snorkeling from various beautiful spots in and
around north west corfu - heaven!
So a really great holiday - we couldn't
imagine (and certainly didn't see) any nicer apartments than Yiannis - which
were a great find.
Jan and Colin -- Aug 2008
We have to say we found
Yiannis and Eleni very friendly, welcoming and helpful and we particularly
enjoyed relaxing on the balcony and taking in the view. We found the apartment
very spacious and clean and the location quiet. It was good to feel free
from all the anxieties at home.
Yiannis kindly arranged the taxis to and
from the apartment and also the car hire which ensured everything ran
smoothly....... If we hear of anyone wanting a break in Corfu we would be happy
to suggest Yiannis obviously.
Frith -- May 2008
We loved the flat and garden,
don't they keep it beautifully? Yiannis and Eleni were so friendly and
welcoming - specially Eleni, with her big hugs and lovely flowers.
Had beautiful weather and explored all over the place, including lovely boat
trips and swimming, truly a holiday to remember.
John and Pat -- Late Sep 2007 Midlands
We thoroughly enjoyed our 10 days
staying at Yiannis. Sitting reading on the balcony with the lovely gardens
around was a wonderful way to relax from problems at home, even after dark by
the light of a citronella candle just listening to distant sounds. Yiannis and
Eleni keep the rooms and surroundings very clean and ensure you have a good
|Ross and Anne -- Aug 2007 London
We had a wonderful time in Agios
Georgios. The apartment was everything we wanted - immaculate, attractive,
well-equipped, and Yanni and Elleni are lovely, kind people, who ensured that
our stay was so enjoyable.
|Ben and Shelby -- Aug 2007 Chesapeake City,
Maryland, USA...(all the way from USA via Philadelphia - Gatwick -
I can not say enough good
words about Yiannis Apartments. Absolutely the best vacation I and my wife have
ever had. The apartment is what was shown on the web page "plus". The garden
around the building was beautiful with so many different types of fruit trees
and flowers. A virtual paradise. Great place to relax and read as well as meet
socially with the other people staying there. As for Yiannis and Elena they are
a charming couple and made our stay there unique. The apartments were very
clean and cared for. As hosts Yiannis and Elena made sure that we enjoyed
ourselves and introduced us to the other guest. I would highly recommend this
place to all families and couples. I certainly would come back. We would be
happy to be a reference if needed.
|David -- July 2007 Ireland
Yiannis place was absolutely fantastic for my
family. The quality and standard of the accommodation is very high. The gardens
are a lovely green oasis and provided a great place for my boys to go on safari
for lizards, geckos and other insects whilst keeping in the shade.
Yiannis and his wife were perfect hosts and most helpful and accommodating.
Yianni also had the taxis organized and the transfers to an from the
airport went perfectly with no hanging around and no hassle.
I would say
this was one of our best holidays we have had for a long time.
|Gill -- July 2007 Norfolk
We had a great time. The studio was
larger than expected and the garden was lovely. The trek to and from the beach
was a little tedious but we alternated that with spending days at the swimming
Pool at the hotel which we were allowed to do. It was extremely hot and not
having airconditioning was a minus (studios do not have
Yiannis and Eleni were very hospitable and friendly.
I think we all agree that we will definitely return to A.G. in the future!
