“The pearl of Agios Gordios”
Reviewed 10 June 2013

We returned to Corfu, and Agios Gordios after an interval of 33 years. We travel a lot, and hardly ever return to the same place, but nostalgia took over, hence the trip. So, expectations were high to say the least. I am pleased to say they were met by Pelagos Apartments in every respect, and by Agios Gordios itself. The apartments are in a secluded area just outside the town, in a lush green paradise. The journey up the hill after supper was a bit taxing, so driving soon became the norm, and gated parking spaces are provided. Our apartment was perfect. Well equipped with high quality fixtures and fittings, and kept spotlessly clean. The owner, Mary, met us at the airport, handed over our hire car, and escorted us to the apartments. Everything was relaxed, but perfect. You really could not get better service anywhere. The sunset view from our balcony was spectacular.
We were pleased to find that the town has not been overwhelmed by development over the years. Yes there are more apartments and hotels, but not too many. The friendly feel, the green vegetation, and the smell of olives,that was our memory of Corfu, is still there. If you want to see the best of a Greek island, where you can still wander down to a beach and have a cove to yourself, go to Pelagos.

Beautifully appointed apartments. Immaculately clean. Perfect for fit couples. Gorgeous grounds and views to the sea. Set away from main village so very peaceful. Owner, Mary, very kind and helpful. We had a perfect holiday here.

My husband and I stayed at Pelagos for a week in June, 2012, to celebrate our 5-year anniversary and cannot say enough about this place! We wanted to be on the western side of the island for good views of the sunset and were not disappointed with the views. They are just like the photos---spectacular. We loved getting to stay a little outside of town. There weren't large crowds when we were there but it was so lovely having the privacy of being outside of town while having town readily accessible by a short walk. And the walk back up the hill each day helped us feel less guilty about all the baklava we ate! Another favorite part of the location is that there is a road and path from the apartments that leads directly down to a more private beach. Mary was absolutely wonderful to work with and we felt like we got an incredible deal for the price we paid. Because we came by ferry from Albania it was one of the cheapest vacations we've done and certainly one of the best. The apartment was immaculate and the gardens so beautiful we felt delight coming back to our apartment each evening. Mary was a great tour guide and gave us some awesome recommendations on hikes to take, all of which were fantastic. We would come back to Pelagos in a heartbeat, and only wish we could have come for longer! I did a lot of research of where to stay and wasn't disappointed AT ALL. It is truly wonderful and there is no other place in Agios Gordios that I could imagine being better!

Room Tip: For budget travelers looking for quiet, nature, cleanliness.

We stayed in Pelagos Apartments for a week in September 2012. Before we arrived, Mary the owner was so helpful with the arrangements by email and came to the airport to meet us with our hire car after arriving after a late flight. She was so welcoming and nothing was too much trouble.

Our apartment was spotless and well-equipped (although we only had reason to use the glasses, as there are lovely places to eat nearby!).

The morning after our arrival we woke to absolutely stunning sea views and the sound of the sea. It is worth travelling to Pelagos for the views alone, but the beautiful gardens and the friendliness of Mary and her Mum are just the icing on the cake.

We cannot fault the accommodation and will be on the lookout for opportunities to head back next year. Thank you Mary for a fantastic week.

Did you ever wish "wouldnt it be great if we could find self catering apartments with fabulous views across the bay out to sea that were immaculately clean, with large, airy rooms, loads of space, fresh white paint, a really well equipped kitchen, balconies with sea views, gorgeous gardens in a really quiet, peaceful spot away from the noise and bustle but a short walk to the resort and beach"? Well you will find it at Pelagos apartments. It was a fantastic place and lovely enough to hang out there all day if you just want to relax. It is just the best self catering apartment ive ever stayed at - on a different level to the usual self catering places. The owners Mary and her mother Eleni come over to look after the place and tend the gardens each day and are so helpful and thoughtful, and have all the info you could need to help you to enjoy the island. You can get car hire through Mary and she will even collect you from the airport which is just brilliant. Cleaning and fresh towels and sheets is very frequent. You really couldnt wish for more at these beautiful, peaceful apartments that the owners take great pride in.

The apartments are a 10-15 minute walk into the resort of Agios Gordios on a hill. It makes for fantastic views and a very peaceful location and yet there is a mini market just 5 mins away if you dont want to go all the way into the village. If you dont want a car you can hire a scooter nearby but I enjoyed the walk each day and the views are stunning as you walk down along the coast road to the village and beach. Theres lovely places to eat, the beach is great and Agios Gordios is a very friendly resort with a lovely laid back feel. Buses run regularly across to Corfu Town and across the island if you want to explore that way. Fabulous altogether.

We are a family from Slovakia and in August 2012 we stayed for 12 days at Pelagos.
We appreciate the services of the owners at this apartment. They do not live in the apartment house but they came there every day or two to clean the rooms, to take care about the garden and to change the towels and bed linen.
We rent a car from the owner and we saw almost the whole island and we found out, that Agios Gordis is the place to stay :) There are many restaurants, bars and shops and really nice beach.
We tried many tavernas on the beach and in the surround of Agios Gordis and the best for us was Taverna in Sinarades (a village next to Agios Gordis).
We were before also in other greek island (Thassos and Zakyntohos) and we were many times in Croatia and we had stayed there in apartments, but we NEVER got the service from the owners like here.
What to say? Come and try Pelagos! :) Thank you Mary and thank you Mary's mother :)
