“Comfortable flat a short walk from the beach”
Reviewed 15 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We really enjoyed our stay at Melianou and in Agios Georgios Pagon. There is not too much going on in the town, but the beach is a beautiful place to relax, there is a scooter and quad bike rental place which is a good way to explore other nearby towns, and there are some good restaurants nearby. The flat was nice and had everything you need. One comment is that there isn't a fan which would be an incredibly welcome addition! (There is an air-con, which you can pay to use.) Estelle and Peter were very welcoming and accommodating. We paid extra for an airport transfer - our arrival and departure times were really late and super early but they were happy to accommodate so thanks for that :)

Hi Chris
So glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. I am sure that your review will be of interest to potential new guests. You should have asked if you wanted a fan and we would have been happy to provide you with one. Also just out of interest for any possible future guests PLEASE just ask for Fans or Mosquito nets etc and we will do our very best to accommodate you.
It was our pleasure meeting you

“A beautiful stay with fantastic hosts”
Reviewed 1 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Spiti Melianou is peaceful and welcoming. The studios are situated in front of an old olive tree field and surrounded by flowering plants, which seem to be growing in number each year. Since this was our second stay in the studios, we noticed the constant care the owners give to the place. This is not the place where a madras or a kitchen is allowed to grow old and tarnished. The place is looked after, and we enjoyed the newly installed air con in the warm nights. The rooms are not grand, but they are nice, very clean, and have everything you need for a good holiday. And to top it of: the friendliest, most attentive hosts you will find anywhere.

“Everything we needed for a peaceful beach break”
Reviewed 2 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Resort was quiet and would suit couples and young families. It has a long sandy beach and plenty of places to eat. There were water sports, eg snorkeling, in a nearby bay. Beach slopes fairly steeply and on the occasions when there's waves it could be a problem for younger children. However, there are swimming pools at the hotels. Hire cars and excursions were also available.

The apartment was basic but clean and had a balcony. The garden was beautiful and had seating area and small pool. The kitchen was great for breakfast but would recommend eating out for dinner. Friendly Estelle picked us up from the airport for a small charge and this was helpful as the local and regional bus stations are quite a distance away from each other. There was an option to pay extra for air conditioning, but we did not need this in May. The walk up to the apartments from the beach is less than 10 minutes but includes a short steep path from the road.

“Fantastic accommodation in a beautiful resort”
Reviewed 16 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

If you are after a relaxing holiday in a very friendly resort then Spiti Melianou in Agios Georgios is perfect!
Estelle and Peter are wonderful hosts and the studios are well equipped, clean and in a perfect position - close to the resort centre, beach and taverna's but also with a rural feel to aid relaxation!
There was really nothing more that we could have wanted from our weeks holiday in the sun. The regular visits from 'Ashes' the cat was an added bonus and gave us our cat-fix!!
Thank you so much Estelle and Peter. Hope to visit again one day...

“Fantastic week at Spiti Melianou”
Reviewed 29 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Just back from a superb break in Aghios Georgios, north west Corfu. We chose Spiti Melianou on the basis of the superb reviews, and boy, they were all spot on. What made the holiday that bit special was the lovely couple, Estelle and Peter, who rent out the studios on the edge of this small, unspoilt village. They could not do enough for us, offering to run us here and there, giving friendly advice, with their superb local knowledge (they have lived on the island for 20 years), they really are superb hosts. The studios themselves are spotlessly clean and well equipped. Their location is excellent, having a lovely rural feel but less than ten minutes walk to the sandy beach and a selection of tavernas and small shops. The shaded terrace and small pool area is the perfect place to spend a lazy afternoon, and breakfast can be enjoyed on the shaded patio area. Estelle was good enough to take us and some other guests to a traditional Greek festival in the nearby small village of Pagoi where we enjoyed some real Corfiot culture, a really enjoyable night! We would recommend visiting Afionas, which is a lovely traditional hilltop village and around 30 minutes walk. From here you can get superb sunset views and also a fantastic panorama of the entire Aghios Georgios bay. Estelle can also provide details of some lovely walks in the vicinity, the area is very scenic and thankfully has not suffered from "over development" like some other resorts in Corfu. We found the local tavernas very good value for money, there is a bus service to Corfu town should you wish to visit for sightseeing, shopping etc. All in all we feel this property offers everything you would need for a great relaxing holiday, thanks again Peter and Estelle and we are missing Melianou already ! See you next time !
PS Well worth taking the airport pick up and drop off service offered by Peter, he took us the scenic route with his tour guide hat on!
