Adventure Nature - the "Honigtal" on Corfu:
Nestled in old olive groves you can find the Honigtal just a few minutes away from the wonderful sandy beach of San George. The Honigtal is ideal for families and single parents with children who want to experience relaxing and eventful holidays.
Around the Honigtal
The bay of San George in the northwest of Corfu belongs to the most beautiful of the whole island. The large sandy beach with the clear turquoise sea extends over 2km. Also in summer time there is enough space to build sand castles, play soccer or volley or just for relaxing and enjoying. Who preferes more lonely places walks within a few minutes to small sleepy pebble bays. San George is a quiet place, ideal for family holidays and people who are looking for peace and relaxation. Small Minimarkets and Tavernas are spreaded on the whole beach. In San George you can also find a diving school and different water sport possibilities.
The wonderful nature around San George and the Honigtal invites to short or long walks or hiking trips. Through shady olive groves, among wild thyme and smelly broom old donkey tracks and foot pathes guide you to the next villages in the mountains. For everybody who likes mountainbiking you can find beautiful varied ways.
In the Honigtal...
The Honigtal is in a quite valley among old olive groves and cyprus trees. A small side road leads after 500m to the beach of San George, one of the most beautiful on Corfu Island.
In the comfy pavilion in the garden of the Honigtal
you can sit for hours enjoying a nice breeze, having lunch together, talking, playing or drinking a nice glass of wine. For the children there is enough place in the olive grove with a playground with a tree house, swings, slides, trampoline or just to romp around. And for those who just want to relax there are some places under the olive trees with sun beds and hammocks...
