WELCOME My name is Theo Gialopsos and like Elena, my wife, I was born in a nearby village here in the hills of the Greek island of Corfu in the Ionian sea.
Our modern hotel is one of several hotels situated in the lovely peaceful resort of Agios Georgios North, famous for its beautiful sweeping golden sandy beach.
The Hotel Theo was built in 1990 to a good specification. It stands on the side of a hill with olive groves at the rear and an agricultural valley in front. Set back behind the terraced gardens higher than the road the elevated position gives lovely views to the hills across the valley. The distance from the Beach is about 700 metres along a tarmac road with steady slight gradient. Inside you will find a Large lounge with wide comfortable chairs. It is served by a long bar serving bottled and draught beer; wines; cocktails; soft drinks; and spirits (Theo's Hotel is famed for its range of whiskies) .
Privately situated high on a bank behind the hotel the lovely Swimming pool area is a delightful place to spend a lazy hour or so with a book or just simply sun-worshipping.
There are fully tiled Sun Bathing areas at the sides and ends of the pool. You can choose a suntrap or a more open position for a cooling breeze on a blistering hot day interspersed with regular dips into the clear water. Poolside sunbeds and sun umbrellas are free of charge. Lunchtime snacks, hot and cold drinks are available at the Poolside much of the day.
Guests love the pleasant Terrace Restaurant for its beautiful views across a green valley. Transparent curtains give protection against rain, wind and cold air but can be tied back in hot summer weather. Breakfast time can be particularly uplifting with the early morning sun on the countryside in front while evening diners often enjoy lovely coloured skies at sunset. The Waiters, all local people, will help you with your choices if required and bring your meals without undue delays.
Hotel Theo is situated near the delightful bay AGIOS GEORGIOS (North) which can be reached via a winding road through wooded hills.The long sandy beach between the high rocky headlands on either side is one of the best in Corfu. A quiet resort, Agios Georgios suits families with young children, couples and individuals of all ages who enjoy restful holidays in beautiful countryside, while at the same time providing endless fun for the kids on the beach or around the few hotel pools. There are tavernas and restaurants throughout the resort.
The slightly sloping beach of golden sand provides plenty of space for soaking up the sun in between cooling off dips in the invitingly clear water. (see photos above) For your convenience there are plenty of sun beds and umbrellas at reasonable prices, while for a bit of exercise there are pedalos, motor boats, sailing boats and canoes for hire by the hour. Young and old will enjoy the water sports available during peak holiday times. Try out Paragliding, Water Ski-ing, Wind Surfing, Jet- Skis, Scuba Diving etc with tuition if required. There is a good choice of Tavernas and supermarket type shops at several places along the beachside road.
The nearby old villages of Pagi and Afionas provide a pleasant view of traditional Greek life. The narrow streets of Pagi were built long before any motor vehicles and are a test for drivers of large vehicles. Many guests of Theo's Hotel walk or take the local bus to spend a relaxing hour in a Pagi cafe.
The beautiful little hill-top village of Afionas is famed for its wonderful views over Agios Georgios bay and the Ionian Sea. There are several restaurants with outstanding views and Theo's Hotel guests are often found in Dionysos taverna or Porto Timoni Cafe recovering from their walk with a cool drink.
Many visitors love to just relax by the lovely hotel pool or on the beach but many like to investigate the countryside by walking.
If you are not keen walkers a Hire Car is suggested to get the best out of this beautiful area of northwest Corfu. There are several local companies, plus Motor Bike, Scooter Hire and Mountain bikes. For many photographs and more information about the Agios Georgios area including some walks and Natural History, flowers etc visit the "about Agios Georgios" web-site.

Water Quality: The water is considered safe but most English visitors drink bottled water available everywhere. Weather: Corfu has its share of showers, some heavy, particularly in early and late season, but the main holiday weeks are usually very dry and hot. Great care must be taken to protect against the sun's rays particularly on the beach where there is often a cooling breeze to trap the unwary sun bather. Local Bus Service: One per day during the summer to Corfu town at very cheap fares for an interesting non-guided excursion. --about 10.15 a.m. daily (not Sundays) from beach (picks up outside Theo's) --- return leaves the town at 4.30 p.m. Walking: There are some lovely walks around Agios Georgios to meet the requirements of both keen walkers and pleasure strollers. These range from walks in the quiet olive groves and small cultivated fields to longer ones to the headlands overlooking the bay. An excellent booklet by Lance Chilton with detailed map is usually on sale at reception. In addition for detailed descriptions of some local walks click here (opens another window). We can easily arrange car hire for you with reliable local companies at the most reasonable rates possible. (It is usually recommended on Corfu internet forums by regular travellers to book locally on arrival for the best prices rather than before travelling.) Just ask Theo a couple of days before it is needed. Your car will be delivered to the hotel and collected when your hire period has finished.
