This beach is undoubtedly one of the most picturesque on the west coast of Corfu. Amalia cottages are just a stroll to this beautiful long sandy beach. The big sweeping, sandy, bay has something to offer everyone. The safe swimming makes it family friendly whilst the centre of the beach has enough activities to occupy teenagers and couples.
Amalia cottages are in high demand due to their fabulous location that is just 100 metres to the beach. The 2 semi-detached and 1 detached cottage are almost identical and have spacious garden areas. The semi-detached cottages have a solid gate between the gardens and are walled offering a good level of privacy, yet the gate can be unlocked and left open if both cottages are booked for 1 large group. Adding the 3rd cottage to your booking gives you accommodation for a total of 16 people in your own private grounds. Amalia cottages are neat and well maintained. There is 1 double bedroom and twin bedroom (2 single beds) in two of them, whilst the other one has 2 twin bedrooms. The kitchens are very well equipped and adjoin the dining areas (in the semi-detached cottage) where there is TV/DVD players. The detached cottage has a small sitting area with TV/DVD player. Each cottage has a full bathroom with shower WC. From the pretty garden terrace there are partial sea views. The sofa beds in the dining or sitting ares are suitable for a 5th person. Free WIFI is available.
A very nice and suitable cottage (Amalia 1) for our holiday in Agios Gordios, we were 3 adults and 2 children of 4 years old, 3 minutes walk to the beach (well equipped and with all the services you need), 5 minutes walk to main street with markets and other shops. The cottage has a beautiful external living area were you can eat and children fun and run without worries! Kitchen well equipped and the owner Dimitris very nice and kind with us. We stay there for 2 weeks and they clean the cottage and change towels twice per week. Recommended!
This was the second time we stayed a week at Amalia in Agios Gordios. The house is really charming, surrounded by fruit trees, clean and has a nice garden /terras that is enclosed. The owners are very kind and helpful and it takes only 1 minute to get to the beach. The sea is beautiful, clear and calm. We can very much recommend the sunset at Agios Gordios, just lying on the free sunbeds, sitting in the sand or enjoying dinner or a drink at one of the nice beach taveernes. If you want you can have some nice walks in the area, up the hill via a steep path through the woods of to a shipwreck on the beach. Our boys (4 and 6) were very exited. We will visit Amalia again for sure.
Die Lage ist sehr gut und sehr nah vom Strand und vom Zentrum. Die Matratzen und die Einrichtung sind Ok. Die Sauberkeit lässt aber sehr zu wünschen übrig, auch wenn man kein Sauberkeitsfanatiker ist. Die Tagesdecke auf dem Sofa würde wohl lange nicht mehr gewaschen. Unter dem Bett und in der Küche war es schmutzig und grauslich- eine Holzkelle gar verschimmelt. Da will man bestimmt nicht kochen.... wir würden dieses Domizil nicht nochmals wählen, auch wenn es preislich gut war.
The beach at Agios Gordis is long and sandy and has a stunning back drop of impressive rock formations that seem to drop into the sea. There is always space on Agios Gordis, even in high season and the beach has the added plus of a village atmosphere making it an ideal location for a family holiday. The majority of accommodations are small Greek homes, apartments and studios and houses set within their own neat gardens and all just a few minutes walk from the beach where some water sports are available.
There is an excellent choice of eateries both on the beach and within the winding lanes that lead up into the villages of Sinarades and Kato Garouna.
There is a local bus service from Agios Gordis to Corfu Town and a taxi rank. If you take advantage of car hire you can reach the famous Achillion Palace in just 20 minutes or explore nearby beaches like Glyfada or the more remote ones near to Halikounas.
