The Beach House (Cosmos Beach) is situated on the less populated wilder side of Corfu at Agios Georgios beach (St. George North) with stunning views of the bay, seconds from swimming in the crystal clear Ionian Sea and backed by hills of broom and myrtle. The house sleeps 6 with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, and is an idyllic place for a relaxing holiday for all the family. With spacious and open plan rooms, generous windows and stone floor, the house is a cool haven in the heat of the summer. Although quiet and peaceful there are boating activities and amenities within a few minutes’ walk, so a car is not essential for those who want the pure beach experience. During summertime you can rent a boat and explore the bay’s headlands of towering cliffs which hide sandy coves and rocky reefs.

I live in Kenya, I'm half Greek and I built this house in 2008 on land that I inherited. I have known the Agios Georgios beach since I played there as a child; it is beautiful and very close to my heart. I tried to build a house that feels peaceful, spacious and soaks in the spectacular views of the bay, and I love being there with my family.
George Sotiropoulos purchased this house in 2008
This place was superb, I felt so much at home, just delightful!
Great and warm welcome at our arrival by the greek administrator, even the fridge was already filled. There were fresh fruit, butter , jam, honey and bread and a lot of other things, the owner really thought about everything.
The house was very clean and very well equipped, it couldn't have been better.
The position of the house is wonderful and we passed most time on the fantastic terrace. Nevertheless a lot of the taverns were already closed, thanks of the advices given on our arrival we found other nice places nearby.
We can highly recommend this very comfortable beach house in front of a long and sandy beach. We rent a car but it is not necessary, because all facilities are very close to the place. Thank you for this late summer relaxing week.
Lying tucked away several miles down a twisty road and 30 km from Corfu town, this little resort can be found under several names including Agios Georgios (North), Agios Georgios Pagi, or San George, and is a haven for lovers of a quiet restful holiday. So far the demands of the tourist trade have not spoiled the natural beauty of this delightful bay nor the friendliness of the local people. It should be noted that there is another Corfu holiday resort of the same name in the south of the island.
Set on level land at the mouth of a wide valley between high rocky headlands, this collection of private houses, small hotels, tavernas and some apartments sprawls lazily behind the beach road. You will not find any tall apartment blocks or large self-catering complexes here, just small family run enterprises.
Behind them is countryside of fields, olive groves and wooded hills. The ancient olive trees with their contorted and perforated trunks form a greyish green carpet when viewed from a distance, but the views are made so much more interesting by the dark green colors of the numerous tall, pencil shaped cypress trees.
Certainly not known for vigorous nightlife, Agios Georgios suits families with young children, or couples and individuals of all ages who enjoy restful holidays in beautiful countryside, while at the same time providing endless fun for the kids on the beach.
However for stressed out 'workaholics' this is the ideal place as you have no choice but to slow down. Everything goes slow here. For a more lively night life it is easy to take a taxi or car the 12 kms or so, to Sidari.
At the superb beach with its crystal clear water you can just relax and enjoy the sun under a beach umbrella, hire a boat or enjoy a variety of water sports.
There is an ample choice of friendly Tavernas, Restaurants, small mini-markets and a few tourists' Gift Shops plus the occasional small quality shops. All are run by friendly local people.
You can hire a Motor Bike or Scooter for the day, or a Mountain Bike (it is hilly or try the water sports available on the beach. Many visitors enjoy walking in this delightful undulating countryside with its shady olive groves and wild flower bordered rural roads.
Our favourite 'not to be missed' short car trips are to:
• Afionas: This delightful village must not be missed if possible. There are several tavernas with stunning views. Take your pick of an eagle's eye view of Agios Georgios bay with drinks at Dionysos taverna and/or Porto Timoni Cafe; or in the opposite direction the truly beautiful view over the off-shore islands, especially the evening sunsets from The Three Brothers, Panorama or Anemos.
• Pagi village for coffee or drinks at a local greek cafe-bar, and on up through Prinillas via the twisting hill road with its magnificent views to the small village of Makrades, now well known for its souvenir shops and the local residents who leap out into the road waving cars to stop to buy their goods. (If you do stop they will have your door open before you know !)
For a longer trip carry on through Makrades down through Lakones with more superb views over the rocky bays of the famous resort of Paleokastritsa.
