Hi spent a weekfrom 18th May 2009 at the Sea Breeze fantastic hotel, rooms very clean and Vassilli and Yannis very friendly, the hotel is right on the beach and has fantastic views. The restaurant has the most fantastic food I wish I was back there. It was a pleasure to sit and eat your evening meal and watch a fantastic sunset.. All the apartments have a kettle, toaster , 2 cooking rings and a fridge. The bathrooms in the sudios are small but everything in them inc hairdryer and shaving power point, they even have a shower curtain which is not common in Greece. I enjoyed it that much I am planning on visiting next year again. I must point out the weather was excellent ranging from 27 - 34c.
Hi, can anyone help, i've just booked a week at Sea Breeze Family Hotel for next May, what are the studio rooms like and what facilities do you have for cooking. Is there a supermarket close to the Hotel.
We thought the place was fantastic the best we have had,the place had a buzz about it. Vasillis and Yiannis were marvellous hosts,my daughter loved it.I recommend the greek nights they are great.Out of the 2 weeks we were there we had 2 days rain but the rest of the holiday was good weather. The accomodation is superb and spacious especially the 2 bed apartment,the new build looks great.Will be visiting in the near future.
Tragedy ! Thanos has left the sea breeze. He was the best thing about the place. An English imposter called Jack muscled him out. Thanos's position became untenable as he didn't want to put brother against brother - so he just left. He is alive and well though working at the Lemon Tree which is doing a roaring trade with Thanos there.
Just returned from our first visit to Corfu. We were staying with our friends in Ano Garouna but visited Sea Breeze daily. Have two children aged 8 and 4 who felt very comfortable and safe in this environment. We swam in the pools and ate in the restaurant. Every meal was delicious and excellent value, cheaper than other tavernas visited. We also spent our last evening at the Greek Evening - which was great fun. Spoke to lots of people who were staying in the apartments who could not fault the place. Fabulous views looking out to sea, and great sun sets. Definitely going back and hope to stay at Sea Breeze apartments. Thanks to staff for making us feel so welcome.
The staff are warm and friendly and extremly entertaining! I would recommend it to both couples and families who want to enjoy a pleasant evening with beautiful views looking out to sea. The greek night has to be experienced.
I have just come back from Corfu with my friends and family, we stayed at Ag Gordios at Villa Elini but we were at the Sea Breeze all day, we ate, drank and used the pool there, it was the best holiday that we have ever had. All the people at the Sea Breeze are so friendly and made our holiday. All of the kids are amazing, Stamatis, Spiros, Constandinos and Theodoros, they are really good friends and we will never forget them. We have been to Corfu before but stayed at Gouvia, we prefer Ag Gordios. We liked it so much we have already started to book for next year. All our love Laura, Emma, Emily, Jess and Joe
We have just returned from the Seabreeze (got back on 04/07/05). We can honestly say that this holiday was the best that we have ever had. We went looking for a relaxing beach holiday with good bars & restaurants and we were not disappointed!
GREAT LOCATION, GREAT ROOMS EXCELL FACILITIES. RUN BY TWO BROTHER'S YANIS HE IS GREAT THE OTHER ONE NOT SO SURE. THERE WERE LOTS OF PEOPLE WHO RETURNED TO SEE THEM YEAR AFTER YEAR SO THEY ARE DOING SOMETHING RIGHT. I WOULD RECOMMEND THEM
We stayed at the Dina appartments which are idealy located near the beach and a mini market next door, my daughter loved swimming at the sea breeze, the greek night is the best we have ever seen in corfu and we have travelled all over the island over the last 12 years. The food is excellent value for money and is very tasty, I would reccomend Ag. Gordios to any one. The airport coming out however is a nightmare.
can anyone tell me if I can book accommodation at the sea breeze (aghios gordios) direct and if so, do you have the contact details. email@example.com
We are visiting the Sea Breeze end July/August and would like to know what the annexe rooms are like, do they have sea view/balcony/location? Any info would be appreciated, Thanx

I am visiting the sea breeze in august and would like any information about the area
Can anyone help myself and family are visiting the Dina apartments in less than two weeks time any information would be gratefull.
September 2003 was our twentyfirst visit to Corfu in just 13 years and our twentieth to Aghios Gordios. (The first was our travel agent’s recommendation for a quiet resort – Kavos – but therein lies another tale!)
The Sea Breeze studios are clean and comfortable and the breathtaking view from the balconies make up for any shortfall in amenities. All we look for from our holiday accommodation is a clean bed to sleep in, somewhere to make a light breakfast, to have a shower and then a good restaurant to have lunch and evening meals at – and the Sea Breeze has them all.
The Sea Breeze is efficiently run from early morning until early morning (yes, that’s right) by Vasilis and his brother Yannis, ably assisted by their lovely wives Dora and Helen, the waiters, kitchen and other domestic staff – and it won’t be too long before their children Stamathis, Spiro, Konstandinos and Theodoro are helping out as well, such is the nature of this ‘family affair’!
It is perhaps the best taverna in the village offering good food, wine and other drinks at a fair price. Aleo, the chef, is an innovative chap and his lambcasserole ON THE BARBECUE has to be tried!
The Sea Breeze is situated right on the beach and offers lovely views of the whole bay. The sunsets have to be seen to be believed!
Dora’s fatherand mother, Kostas and Athena, provide the sun beds and brollies on the beach in front of the taverna as well as the pedaoles and other watersports and two or three nights a week – depending on the time of year – there is Greek dancing or barbeque nights.
Much of our spare time is spent chatting with our many friends in the village shops, unwinding on the beach, at the pool, out walking or venturing the odd excursion into Corfu town on the bus which, unlike some of ours in the UK are cheap (€1.50 this year) and always run to their timetable. This September we helped pick the grapes for the family wine!
Along with many other 'villagers', Vasilis, Yannis, Dora and Helen at the Sea Breeze along with Elena and her husband Petros 'next door' have been friends of ours since our first stay in this resort and we have had the pleasure of seeing their children growing up from their very early years as well as benefitting from their hospitality.
When it comes to food we choose to eat either at the Sea Breeze or 'next door' at Elena’s Restaurant/Café beside the Calypso Diving Centre rather than any of the others in the resort – and we’ve tried most of them.
I would venture to suggest that the ‘traditional English’ tourists looking for their fish and chips, Sunday roast and the like may not appreciate the traditional Greek food served in either of these places but, when one goes abroad, surely sampling the local cuisine is one of the main reasons for going in the first place.
We've travelled mostly with Manos and Karen, their Senior Representative in the resort is lovely. Always polite and helpful, she seems to be always available to deal with any queries or problems that her guests may have and manages to resolve them in her quiet, efficient manner. This year she has been ably assisted by a charming Germal lass called Martina.
We tend to shop for most of our needs in Gee Bees supermarket by the Bus Stop though the other supermarkets do get a share. ‘George’ and his wife Angela, who hails from Merseyside, run Gee Bees supermarket and everyone who passes the door gets a cheerful greeting – and sometimes a bit of cheeky banter – from George as they make their way either to the beach or back to their apartments. Their children Spiros and Olga are lovely too and, much to our shame, are fluent in both Greek and English.
The beach that claims to be one of the best on the island and famed for its crystal clear water and mile of golden sand was in a better condition some years ago, but the ‘golden sand’ now has the characteristics of dry cement powder! It was a disappointment this year.
There was no lifeguard - but the new lookout tower installed and manned last year had been repainted. There was no lighting alog the beach walkway after dark, which created a distinct disadvantage for visitors wanting to venture out to the tavernas located on the waterfront. I doubt that the beach came even remotely near the standard required for the award of any accolade this year.
A lot of black seaweed was washed out and back in again by the waves all summer long. It was most unpleasant and a haven for flies in the hot weather. Children were unable to play in the sand and the loss of income for the people renting out sun beds and umbrellas on the beach must have been considerable at a time when they should have been recouping some of the vast amounts of money they pay to ‘the council’ in rent for their stretch of sand.
The number of haphazardly sited and half-completed buildings in the village increases year on year, and some have made no progress from being mere concrete floors and column casts for a long time. I overheard one tourist comment that the place looked more like a Beirut suburb than a holiday resort … and I had to agree with her.
Out and About:
Walking is one of our interests and Aghios Gordios provides an excellent base for exploring the surrounding countryside and villages. Despite the increasing amount of 'fly tipping' of plastic tables and chairs, washing machines, fridges and other household and building waste found by the roadsides, the tranquillity found in the surrounding hills contrasts quite sharply with the bustle of the resort. The little villages within easy walking distance are a delight to explore and feature the traditional, slower pace of life – as well as welcoming café bars.
Explore the ‘donkey track’ that leads from Aghios Gordios up to Aerostato and into Sinarades; go further north from Aerostato on the (marked) Corfu Trail towards Yaliskari, Pelekas and beyond; go southeast from the Bus Stop, up the hill to Kato Garouna; venture farther to Kato Pavliana and on to Aghios Mattheos; walk through Kato Garouna down to Pendati and Paramonas. For the more adventurous there’s a rather ‘interesting’ scramble that leads from the south corner of the beach - below the hotel - up the cliff path and on to Pendati. Aghios Gordios is also an excellent base from which to tackle the Corfu Trail in sections. There are a couple of books available - written by Hilary Whitton Paipeti - that give details of walks in Corfu including her Companion Guide to the Corfu Trail. They are available from good bookshops in Corfu town. Just get a taxi out to where you want to start and walk back ‘home’.
If you go there ... please enjoy it!
its good here i stayed here two years ago and its got very good night time entertainment like greek dancing
Visited Sea Breeze for the past 7 years and love it !! Location is second to none in Aghios Gordios and the family who run it are now friends. Studios are basic but we love them as we eat out all the time. We have stayed at the apartments as well with our children and they are more spacious but again basic. The friendly atmosphere at the Sea Breeze more than makes up for any shortcomings in the accomodation which are typically Greek. Beach is lovely and always quiet when we have visited ( May and September). Sea Breeze great for eating out as is the Calypso next door.
we are stopping in sea breeze villa in august can anyone give me any info about it and a pictuer if possible
If you stay at the Sea Breez this year u will want to go back year after year
FIVE STAR service all round ,the family & waiters are the most friendly people you will ever meet.
You will have a wonderfull time
