Agios Steafanos Northern East area – Corfu island – GREECE
Agios Stefanos is on the north eastern side of the island and once you’ve seen it, there’s no confusing it with anywhere else. A secluded bay, lined with yachts, dingys and whitewashed buildings. A small pebble beach and thriving seafront tavernas. A vibrant Greek community that makes everyone feel at home. All this, just across the water from Albania – so close in fact, you can even see the houses on the opposite shore. Travel to Agios Stefanos once and you won’t forget it.
Agios Stefanos is exceptionally pretty. This up market resort is about villas like Dimitris, Ekavi and Strongilo, dotted about on the surrounding hillside. It’s about having a private space, a private pool and a private view out over the bay. All of which means this small fishing village has stayed in tact and its authentic Greek charm has escaped high rise horrors.
Agios Stefanos holidays are for lounging by the pool or down on the beach. Hire a boat and explore nearby coves like gorgeous Kerasia Beach. Trot off into Eremitis Nature Reserve on horseback and discover secret lagoons. Take a trip across to Albania. Or settle down for a day’s fishing off the jettys. Nights bring locals and visitors into the tavernas, to taste the catch of the day, topped off with a tipple in one of the cocktail bars. For a longer, louder nightlife, Kassiopi is your best bet.
