Overview

About the property

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

Beautifully decorated to a high standard, Villa Jasmine is set back from the winding road dotted with olive trees, leading to the resort of St George South. 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 & 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 seating.

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 setting over the trees in the distance.

Shower room with corner shower.

Towels & beach towels provided.

The resort of St George South is 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, locals & Kite Surfers 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!

LOvely cottage

  • 5 of 5

Agios Georgios is definitely worth visiting. It was ideal for us, two 50 somethings. The cottage caters for your every need and is in a central location. I would definitely visit again.

Well appointed and well equipped compact property

  • 5 of 5

Jasmine cottage is in a great location. In a pretty, quiet spot but only a 5 minute walk from the sea. It's well equipped and has lovely outdoor space. We ate our dinner while sitting on the patio, most evenings. There is a great butchers and bakers only 3 minutes drive away, on the main road, and the supermarkets that are a minute's walk away stock everything else you need. We spent a fair bit of time around the pool at the Tzevenos hotel, nearby, where the welcome was warm. We took the Kostas boat trip to Paxos which was a great trip. Paxos is lovely. The shops there are far better than in Agios Giorgios and the tavernas are lovely. We loved our stay at Jasmine, and Agios Giorgios was pleasant.

Back to my happy place!

  • 5 of 5

I am a regular at this lovely little cottage and try to visit each year. This year was my 10th stay! Jasmine has had another lovely fresh paint job...very nice.

I am a solo traveller and really like the resort of St George's. Everywhere is easily accessible by foot and the locals and repeat visitors are very welcoming and great company. Finding Jasmine cottage has been a god send as I can totally relax on my own in a clean and very well kitted out villa which I much prefer to a basic apartment. I feel very comfortable and at home here.

The owner (Alex) is great and very helpful as are Ange & Pete who look after the villa...more like friends now.

See you next year!

Villa jasmine was lovely small but well put together. Big enough for two everything you need great

  • 5 of 5

We has a great week at villa Jasmine lovely area restaurants and shops all within walking distance. Everything you need has been thought of, very peaceful beautiful sunsets. Villa jasmine has all you need for a great holiday. Angie and Peter were very helpful and friendly and Alexandra answered any questions we had and gave us all the directions we needed. We hired a car so we could visit different areas , but it's not essential. Corfu has lovely people so friendly loved it.

Lovely accommodation

  • 5 of 5

This was perfect for our stay. The villa was really well equipped, clean and comfortable as well as set in a quiet location with a lovely view from the rear patio - so relaxing. Managers Angela and Pete were so helpful and easy to contact for any queries. Good restaurants nearby on the seafront - The Village Taverna, Kafesas and Barbayiannis were some we liked.
