Dora Studios and Apartments

Perfectly located within the resort centre and with a beach a very short walk from the front door, the Dora Studios and Apartments complex has managed to pack a genuinely homely feel into a relatively bijou and unassuming location.

Apartments are bright and inviting, each having a balcony or terrace, and with a decent-sized pool, there is a very upbeat and sociable vibe in play. A traditional Greek restaurant run by the owners can be found just five minutes away and guests get a discount, but it’s the location that really puts the hotel above so many others. It is in the epicentre of St George South and shops, restaurants, bars and a supermarket are all within 100m.

Overview of St George South

Holidays to Corfu give you access to the culture of Greece and the enviable climate of Italy, making for a heady combination of dream holiday tropes – and there are plenty of very different regions to stay in.

When rest and relaxation are the most important facets of a holiday to Corfu, there are few places better to stay in than St George South, which is where you’ll find the Dora Studios and Apartments. Small, picturesque and exactly what you picture when trying to imagine an idyllic island. With olive groves stretching out around the resort and a couple of very scenic beaches to enjoy, life in St George South is certainly quieter and slower, but never dull.

Things to do in St George South

Leave the Dora Studios and Apartments complex and you will want to head straight to the two stretches of sand in town; Issos Beach and Golden Beach. Issos tends to be a little more vibrant, but the currents are slower, so it’s great for families. Both beaches are great for fans of water sports, however.

There’s a lot of tavernas in town with many serving up just traditional Greek food, so expect to find a lot of rich meaty dishes, alongside very tasty veggie options. International food can be found too, but not as readily. There’s no party scene in St George South but you can enjoy late happy hours and traditional ‘Greek nights’ with dancing. For a more energetic night out, you can head to Kavos, just a 20-minute taxi ride away.

Bringing the quieter and more idyllic side of Corfu to the forefront of holidaymakers minds, St George South is an amazing destination that is sure to be on the bucket lists of the most discerning travellers.

Resort Summary

There are two main beaches in St George South – Issos Beach and Golden Beach – which are separated by a line of rocks and a harbour. Issos Beach is located on the northern side of town, where there’s a large cluster of tavernas, bars and shops. Down on the southern end is Golden Beach, where things run on the subdued side and are more spread out. This beach has been known to have stronger winds and current, so if you’re travelling with kids, Issos might be your best bet.

Each of the beaches come ready with rows of sun loungers for hire, as relaxing is the main activity on this stretch of the island. Most of the hotels and apartments here also offer free use of the sunbeds and parasols lining their pools – not to mention their pool-side bars – so you’ll have limitless options in the ways of lounging.
