Hi folks, we have managed to get a cheap week in AGS at the Andriana Apartments which look very nice. Has anyone been there and what Tavernas would you recommend and also any walks from the resort. Thanks Kayte

Just got back from AGS on the 27th. There's plenty of restaurants and tavernas to choose from. We liked Oceano but also tried Balcony, Panorama, Makis and a couple of others. A walk along the beach to lake Korrison is nice...cover your eyes when you get to the nudist beach!!

Thanks sandmanandher, We can work our way along those in a week. will keep a weather eye open for the nudists. We found ourselves among bodies on a beach in Dorset once, very embarrasing as we had walked a long way without noticing!!!

Our favourite by far and in the whole of Corfu was Kafesas just down the hill from Andrianas Apartments.
Nowhere else even touched it and we ate at most places. Also if you are staying at the apartments you get 10% discount. If you come out of the apartments and turn left and go a little way up the hill there is a nice swimming pool that you can use as Andrianas does not have one. We had a good stay, they are basic but absolutely fine and I can recommend the Paxos trip that goes direct from A.G South, it was well worth the money.

Do agree about Kafesas, ate there in the evening as it was so convenient.had three beautiful days and five very wet ones, but it didn't stop us from enjoying ourselves. The apartment was great, would use Andriana's again, so quiet and apart from a few little quibbles, just the job. The duvets were great when it turned a bit nippy at night.

Its also a nice walk south to Santa Barbara along the beach with just a small rocky part that is easy to walk over. Then heading further south there is a wonderful cliff top path which will give you great views when you turn around back towards Ag Georgis, with Lake Korission and Mt Ag Mattheos in the background (see my avatar).

We wanted to do that walk to Santa Barbara but the sea was right up and no way to get along. Is there an inland path, we looked but couldn't see one? We did walk along the sand dunes to Lake Korission and Argirades, back along the main road which was a bit precarious in parts!

I'm not sure if there is an inland path other than following roads which defeats the object of a walk. The sea is not always right up to the cliff/rocks so you may have better luck on your next visit.

Hi, not sure about the walks, but all I know is St Georges South is where my first holiday was in Corfu, and that's what made me return every year since that, accept one time when we went to Rhodes, the resort was not a good one where we were staying. But St Georges in lovely, enjoy!
