(the original guide to Agios Georgios North,
This is the original web-site about Agios Georgios north,
although the actual text used on some pages has been copied by several other
travel web-sites since its origins. It was made and is maintained by a regular
visitor to Agios Georgios from UK. Call me Den !
The idea first took hold after a typical holiday many
years ago when my wife and I had made some good friends among the local
business people who were suffering from the fall-off in tourist numbers to
Corfu due to the emergence of new cheap holiday destinations all over the
world. At that time the British travel agents seemed to know very little about
the resort and it seemed such a shame that in this beautiful area many
apartments were empty for much of the season.
With so much accommodation
empty it is obvious that the trade of other businesses: the tavernas,
restaurants, shops, etc was also suffering.
In those earlier days of the
Internet there was literally nothing about Agios Georgios available
on-line. I had a few photographs and signed up for a 3month course of evening
classes on web-page design, choosing this resort as my training subject,
As you can tell it is an amateur site and is kept simple.
Hopefully the content will make up for what is lacking in quality and modern

Aim of web-site
The web-site is aimed at attracting new visitors to Agios
Georgios and the nearby resorts. It also aims to help those who have already
chosen the resort and would appreciate more information to get the most out of
their few days holiday.
I have tried to cover typical holiday questions
but other pages have been made about topics which I know interest some
visitors. Some pages have been prompted by regular questions either by email or
Staying in a popular hotel with a chatty bar atmosphere
helps me to do this. As a visitor myself I see the resort from a visitor's
point-of-view rather than that of a resident used to the area. One local person
looking at my nature pages said "I have lived here all my life and drive or
walk past that spot almost every day but have never noticed that !"
Many Internet Travel Guides now have pages about Agios
Georgios (some even have correct photographs and details). BEWARE ! Some
have not even visited the resort and give wrong facts and photographs. Some
copy MY descriptions and photographs !
Site visitors should bear in mind that this is not
intended to be an official guide and there will be some things you think are
For instance I do not generally comment on tavernas or restaurants
as people have different opinions and experiences. Instead I provide a plan
showing the position of these facilities.
I do NOT provide an accommodation
service nor a full list of apartments and studios as I would need to be
resident to do this properly. Instead I mention only a few self-catering
premises in which I or close friends have stayed in and can speak about from
In view of the limitations of my
short visits I really do appreciate any comments, information, or
photographs etc provided by other visitors. The site is intended for you and
YOU can help me make it better. Just email me using the link
provided on every page.
For example recently I added some
'Nature' pages, knowing that a small proportion of visitors enjoy the wild
flowers, birds, butterflies etc. My brief visits are a problem but this
is the Internet with its superb communication facilities so YOU
can help me and help others enjoy their holiday by posting
your observations on the special Notebook provided
