Corfu Resorts

One of the most refreshing aspects of the resorts in Corfu is their human scale. Even the most commercial resorts are small enough not to intimidate and offer excellent facilities for all age groups. There are no high rise blocks taking up miles of coastline and many areas maintain a distinctly local character as well as offering all one could need as a holiday maker.

 

The capital town of 'Corfu' is a must with plenty to occupy everyone from sight seers & souvenir hunters to historians & antique collectors and the more 'traditional' resorts range from little seaside villages that have developed gradually through the years to purpose built complexes with all the latest facilities and a wide range of accommodation.

There are numerous local festivals and processions too such as the village 'panayiris' Saints day festivities with live music and local dancing; the St Spiridon procession, and the Varcarolas in Corfu, Agios (St) Stephanos, Kalami and Paleocastritsa, small boats lit up with lights and playing music sailing around the bays at night. There is an open-air cinema in Corfu and a Music university where free concerts are often held and there are the Big Summer concerts where Greek pop stars play in the Old Fortress or main towns around the island. All these events tend to be 'luck of the draw' as advertising is generally very last minute but they imbue in Corfu a unique vibrant life.

We hope you will enjoy browsing our brief description of each resort and then be able to choose the resort that you would prefer for your holiday.

Our reservation staff are familiar with all the resorts and villas and can help you make the correct choice.

 
  • Kassiopi
Kassiopi has blossomed from it origins as a quiet little fishing village into a small, bustling resort with a strong emphasis on families and couples. There are several sand and shingle beaches within a ten minute stroll of the village and the harbour itself is a centre for day trips and other watersport activities. 

The Travel Corner has selected properties that are peacefully situated just outside of Kassiopi itself, but are within an easy walk.

Kassiopi boasts a wide range of shops, restaurants and bars with something to cater for every taste. Lively, but certainly not rowdy, Kassiopi strikes a perfect balance for those who don't want to have to travel too far to find plenty of entertainment but definitely aren't interested in the nightclubs and loud music bars of bigger, more 'touristy' resorts.
  • Avlaki
Avlaki is the bay between Agios Stephanos and Kassiopi. It is a sweeping, beautiful bay backed by just a few villas and a couple of tavernas. The beach tends to be very quiet, which is ideal for enjoying the peace and soaking up the sun, although there is a sailing school, which will instruct beginners to the experinced in dinghys, boat hire and the clear sea in which to swim.
  • Agios (St.) Stephanos
The small resort of Agios Stephanos (or for Some St. Stefanos) is renowned as being one of the most attractive places to stay on the upmarket north-east coast of Corfu. This picturesque fishing village has a charming, traditional feel to it and a beautiful little harbour. Whilst offering a good range of facilities to its visitors, Agios Stephanos has escaped the downfalls of some of the more overdeveloped tourist resorts.

In addition to its choice of shops and excellent tavernas, Agios Stephanos has its own small, pretty beach with wooden jettys which are ideal for sunbathing or fishing - or you could take a trip to the blue flag beaches of Kerasia, which are only a twenty minute walk away through some lovely countryside. The stunning Avlaki beach with its watersports, tavernas and dinghy sailing school, is also just a short drive away.

Agios Stephanos has so much to offer: a beautiful village in a peaceful location; superb beaches right on your doorstep; wonderful views of the mainland and Albania. Little wonder then that visitors choose to return to this heavenly spot time and time again.
  • Kalami Bay

Beautiful Kalami Bay is renowned as the place where Lawrence Durrell wrote 'Prospero's Cell' in the 1930's. The book brought Corfu to the attention of the English and so began their love affair with the island and their friendship with its people.

Yet, despite its fame, this delightful village retains a traditional and peaceful atmosphere and is geared very much towards anyone hoping for a quieter, family holiday.

Having said this, Kalami does have a small number of bars and several excellent tavernas - of which we can particularly recommend both Pepes and Dimitris - so you will never be short of good places to eat and drink. There are also a few craft shops and mini-markets so, without being overdeveloped, Kalami can provide you with everything you need during your stay.

The beach is mainly shingle and slopes into sparkling waters, ideal for swimming and snorkelling. You can also hire pedaloes, canoes and boats with which to explore the 'secret' coves and beaches that are to be found all along the coast.

A favourite with the Durrell family over half a decade ago, we believe the traditional charm and character of Kalami will continue to captivate families to this very day.

  • Barbati
Barbati beach is a white stretch of shingle against an azure sea, some twenty kilometres north of Corfu Town. Waterskiers ride the waves, swimmers dodge the little caiques and motor boats potter past. Just north of Barbati is the little hamlet of Glyfa, with its two tavernas, and just beyond Glyfa, on its own acreage of land, right at the lip of the water, screened from the view of everyone except the passing boats, is one of the oldest and most venerable villas on the island, the Barbati Olive Press, and its recent sister, Alexia.
  • Sidari

Perhaps the best known of the resorts on the North coast of Corfu, Sidari has grown up around two fishing villages and has become especially popular with English tourists. Set in a bay that is surrounded by wooded hills, Sidari has a long sandy beach flanked by smaller sand and shingle beaches either side. This Blue Flag beach shelves gently into the warm sea making it an excellent beach for swimming and a safe one for children to go paddling. Water sports are also available for the more energetic!

Beach lovers will enjoy exploring this coastline where the soft sandstone cliffs have been eroded over the years to form numerous little coves and bays that create hidden beaches and secluded spots. The Canal d'Amour, a channel calved into the sandstone cliff by the sea, is a popular attraction.

Sidari offers a lively atmosphere with plenty of tavernas, restaurants and bars open late into the night. This good-sized resort also provides plenty of shops and amenties. Those seeking a quieter more authentic Greek experience will enjoy discovering tavernas in nearby villages and on beaches along this beautiful coastline.

  • Ipsos
Ipsos boasts a famous 2km stretch of blue flag beach. Originally a small fishing village, this beautiful location has evolved gradually through the years with careful development has retained it's charm while adding services and conveniences for it's guests.
  • Corfu Town

This island capital has a unique mix of architectural influences and is packed full of history as well as an excellent variety of restaurants, shops and attractions. Ambling through the maze of narrow streets Sicilian, Venetian, French and English influences are revealed at every turn.

The Old Town (Palaiopoli) is situated between the Esplanade Square and the new fortress. This large square (also called Spianada) became a public space during the French occupation. On the west side of the square The Liston is a stunning French designed building inspired by the famous Rue de Rivoli in Paris and is home to some of the smartest caf‚s and bars anywhere in Corfu.

There is plenty to discover including the Old and New Venetian Fortresses, the Town Hall Square, the Square of the Saints, the Ionian Academy and the Palace of Saint Michael and Saint Georges.
