We have just returned from a week at Sebastians and very enjoyable it was. We had one of the recently refurbished rooms, it was light, modern, adequately furnished and immaculate, as was the bathroom which had the best shower I have ever used on any of the islands.
Food was generally of a very good standard, it is very good, home cooked, traditional Greek food. We were half board so enjoyed breakfast everyday and a 3 course meal at night, favourites were the spinach pie, burekakia, pastisata and sofrito.
Sebastian is an extremely attentive host who goes the extra mile with all his guests, Teresa has her hands full with a wee boy and lots of website work but it was nice to meet her too. Anna does a good breakfast and prepares the meat marinades, she always has a smile for you. Maria works the tables in the evenings, again a ready smile, nothing too much trouble, oh yes and a great wiggle! And of course the matriarch, Vanessa - get well soon, plenty of rest for you please.
Ag Gordios is very quiet, a few supermarkets and tavernas and no night life to speak off, it is also very mountainous, unless you are an avid climber or have transport (or the bus) you are a bit stuck. There are 3 buses a day into Corfu, return ticket is euro 4.40 each, you can get tickets from GeeBees supermarket at the bus stop. Taxi from the airport is now euro 35 one way! Petrol is very expensive now and has had an effect on all prices especially food and drink, euro 6 for 2 cups of tea at the green bus station!
The beach is good at Ag Gordios, the weed was coming in when we were there though not too much, and a little rubbish around, but generally the beach is not too bad, if you are prepared to walk a little, head north up the beach, past the white building that sticks out and you will find some nice little private sunbathing areas.
As I said it is very quiet, we wanted a total chill out week and in Sebastians, we picked the perfect place to do it.
A very enjoyable and relaxing week, thank you to all at Sebastians
