St George Sth - (Resorts on Corfu)

Bill & celia T          9/10

8th May 2010 - We were intending to go on holiday to Tunisia, but the volcano had other ideas, and we eventually managed to re-book a weeks holiday in Corfu.  This was our first visit to this Greek island and had hesitation, especially as we read some comments by other people on this holiday resort.  However, we stopped at Tzevenous hotel/apartments (family run business) which had a swimming pool, outdoor bar etc.  We were in one of the self catering apartments.  We found this clean and tidy with everything needed for 2 people.  It was kept clean and tidy by the cleaning staff.  There were facilities within Tzevenous to purchase breakfast, lunch or snacks and evening meals if you so chose.  In the 'town' just five minutes walk away, there was a long promenade following the coast in an idyllic setting.  There are many bars/restaurants to cater for all different choices.  For us, the best was 'The Balcony Restaurant' which overlooks the sea, offering excellent Greek Cuisine as well as English food.  It provided a friendly and welcoming atmosphere and excellent value for money.  The bus service reflects typical Greek way of life - laid back and it will arrive (probably) in due course.
We thoroughly enjoyed our weeks stay at this quiet time in the year and would be happy to return to the same place, apartments, restaurant etc.
