Description

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday villa in Melitiei - Villa Jasmine

Spacious, light and airy, very well equipped & air-con included

Beautifully decorated to a high standard, newly built Villa Jasmine is set back from the winding road dotted with olive trees, leading to the resort of St George. A quiet location perfect for total relaxation and time out in the sun enjoying quality food in the many tavernas and lots of exploring on offer.

Enter the cottage to find a fully fitted kitchen and living area, with television, DVD player, music system, iPod speakers & air-con.

Living area has large comfy day bed for seating and to accommodate sleeping of up to 1 extra person.

Leading from the sitting area is the bedroom with large double bed and French doors leading out onto the veranda with comfy alfresco wicker seating area.

Small private garden with sun lounges at back of cottage leading from veranda. The garden area looks out onto countryside and is not overlooked by neighbouring buildings and has a fantastic view of the sun set.

Shower room with corner shower, towels and dressing gowns provided.

The resort of St Georges...: Situated on the south west coast of the island, St George known as the 'sun set bay' is approximately 35kms from Corfu Town.

Accessible by only one road that winds through dense olive groves, St George was once just a tiny fishing community.

Today it still retains much of it's charm & also boasts three wonderful sandy beaches, St George beach, Issos beach & Halikouna beach. Halikouna, the longest of the three is pure sand stretching for over a mile & attracts tourists and locals from all over Corfu.

Stretching out a little further across the sand dunes and desert like features is Lake Korission, covering an expanse of 1500 acres. The lake or lagoon here is a nature reserve & home to many rare bird species - ideal for walking & being close to nature as well as being a turtle-nesting area. This is truly a magical spot where sea & sand harmonise.

As the day draws to a close & the beaches begin to empty, join the locals in the tavernas, sample the local wine & delicious cuisine!

The Island of Corfu: The 'Emerald Island' of Corfu, known to the Greeks as Kerkyra, homes well watered and beautiful lush green hillsides where you will find an array of colourful flowers and vast stretches of olive groves and vineyards.

Sunny days, cool night breezes, friendly locals and fascinating history are just some of the memories that you will take home with you.Steeped in history both the Venetians and the British have occupied Corfu and you will still find much evidence of their architecture and rule here today. The cricket pitch in Corfu town is just one of the many interesting and quirky features.Corfu Town was built between two fortresses during the Venetian rule and is one of the most beautiful, most impressive and interesting cities in Greece. The population of Corfu Town is about 30,000,and is quite cosmopolitan compared to other islands in Greece. It is an amazing mixture of old tavernas, new cafes, bars and clubs plus the beautiful old city protected by the two fortresses.

The Ionian Islands: Among the 3000 inhabited islands of Greece, there is a small group of seven, known as the Eptanissa or Ionian Islands, located just off the western mainland seaboard.

Captivating landscapes of rugged mountains, green hills and the ever present turquoise warm shallow waters of the Ionian sea best sum up the Ionian Islands.

Over the centuries these islands have developed their own culture and identity, partly through their periodic occupation by foreign powers such as the Venetians, the Turks and the British.

Each Island is unique unto itself, varying not only from the rest of Greece but from it's neighbours.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We arrived home safely after our stay in Jasmine Cottage which I must say is a delightful location and very well maintained by Pete and Angie. They were always on hand if needed to give help and advice,

The only downside to our stay was the weather which I think was unseasonal. We had lots of thunder storms with spectacular displays of lightening and days of torrential rain, however it didn't stop us having an enjoyable and relaxing time.

It is unusual for us to holiday in the same place in consecutive years but your cottage would make anyone want to return.

We haven't decided yet where to go next year but a return to Jasmine Cottage is always possible.

Thank you Alex for making things so easy for us arranging these holidays and who knows!

Comfortable and well equipped in good location

  • 4 of 5

This is a comfortable small cottage, with everything you need for a relaxing holiday. We enjoyed watching the fireflies from the back patio after dark. The property is well located for all the nearby restaurants and bars, without being disturbed by noise. The only downside was that we found it too hot to sit out at the back in the early evenings before we went out, due to lack of shade. Just meant we had to head for the bars that much sooner!

Lovely comfortable quiet cottage.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage - very comfortable home from home with everything needed for a fantastic holiday. Were told there would be beach towels provided which there weren't - but no big deal!!

Really enjoyed ourselves and plan to come back. Particularly enjoyed the band at Mike's Place - saw them three times and had some good dancing.

Beach variable - found the best place to be opposite CosmosCorfu Cars Office.

Corner of paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable and relaxing stay at Jasmine cottage. The location was perfect, just a short stroll to the village centre where there are some good restaurants and amazing sunsets. The cottage had everything we needed and more. The property manager was very helpful and the property is kept clean and well-maintained. We would love to return to this property and would not hesitate to recommend to family and friends. Would also recommend George, the taxi that the owner arranged for us. He is very reliable and helpful.

Fantastic Corfu Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Jasmine Cottage for two weeks. It was our first visit to Corfu so we didn't know what to expect. We liked Corfu a lot and the cottage was beyond our expectations. The picture shown on the website doesn't do it justice. We are a couple in our 60/70's and the cottage was perfect for us. It had everything you could possible want during your holiday. We would fully recommend Jasmine Cottage and look forward to our next visit there.

Good stay at Jasmine

  • 4 of 5

No real problems, sunny terrace,parking on site. We enjoyed our stay at this cute little cottage.

The only "problem" we had was a noisy air con unit belonging to the next door property. It could be heard in Jasmine's bedroom.

The property was as described and the managers, Angela and Peter called twice to check if we were ok., which was good and appreciated. Overall, a good stay.
