Licensed by the Greek National Tourist Organisation, the Villa Mantis offers spacious and stylish accommodation. The covered front veranda and barbecue area provide plenty of outdoor room, overlooking the large, flower-filled lawned garden. Inside, the Villa boasts a high, vaulted ceiling creating a contemporary interior living space decorated with modern pieces by local artists. There are two twin rooms downstairs, with shower room, and the en suite double room upstairs. St George is a rather sleepy place which is totally child-friendly, safe and peaceful. Boasting some of the island's finest tavernas, you will never be far from delicious Greek food and the 7 miles of Blue Flag winning sandy beaches and crystal waters will please all those wishing to swim, toast or simply doze. A holiday at the Villa Mantis provides easy enjoyment in a village setting, next to the bluest seas. We are always nearby should you need anything or simply want a recommendation for the best local wine.

Cookery Courses at Villas: After many years of entertaining our guests and their positive feedback, we have recently begun running Greek Cookery Courses based at our villas. Combining the fun of a Corfu Villa house party and the pleasure of enjoying the delights of real Greek food, our courses are a week long and include accommodation as well as all the cookery demonstrations, ingredients and at least one meal each day. The holiday is tailored to provide guests with plenty of time to explore the island, swim and sunbathe but we have arranged gloriously laid back, inclusive meals at wonderful tavernas, boat trips and even barbecues! We will not only cook food together but will eat and drink in good company for the week. Contact us for further details and departure dates.

Corfu The Island : Corfu (or Kerkyra, as it is known in Greek)is a beautiful and lush island set in the azure Ionian Sea. As well as offering some of the finest beaches and waters in the Mediterranean, there is a fascinating mix of history, elegance, tradition and culture to explore. As islanders ourselves, we would encourage our guests to find the time to leave the beach a little, and discover quiet, hillside villages where time has stood still, a wealth of small but delightful museums, a stylish cafe culture, fabulous shopping and breathtakingly beautiful countryside. We would be happy to point you in the right direction for a perfect deserted beach, the best silversmiths in town, the finest waterside fish taverna or to a simple picnic spot on the mountain. Whether you'd like a day's sailing, a round of golf, to bring a cricket team to the island for a mini tour or simply need directions to the nearest monastery, we're there to help.

Travel On Corfu : So that you will be able to see as much of Corfu as you can whilst visiting, we would recommend you hire a car for part of your stay. Road signs are in Greek and English and are easy to follow. For those who prefer not to drive whilst on holiday, the rural bus service between St George and Corfu Town is reliable and inexpensive (air conditioned coaches). We know our local taxi drivers well and they would also be happy to take you where you need to go. Moped and motorbike hire should be considered with caution - if you are not used to traveling by bike it can be somewhat hazardous and helmets must be worn by law. You can travel to mainland Greece and neighbouring islands by ferry from Corfu Town (but there are also delightful one day boat trips from St George available).
