Some great opinions here and interesting to see San Stef growing on people. Now less than 2 weeks to go for us and still as excited as the first time. We have even been able to extend our visit to a third week. So looking forward to seeing friends old and new. That is one of the beauties of the place. You cannot go anywhere without bumping into someone you know.

We always have a walk every morning which we vary and spend afternoons at the pool. We also always hire a quad bike and go somewhere different - we even get lost and mnanage to find somewhere nice to look around.
Definitely tavernas by night and also the Aquarios bar as well which has a very relaxing atmosphere.

A typical day for us, who have been coming here many times since 1983, my Son was 4 years old on his first (our second) trip to San Stefanos (S S), and he is now 29 and bringing his son (aged 3) in 3 weeks time.
My kids grew up coming to S S, and my Son in particular, knows all the locals around his age very well.
From firstly playing with them as kids, to "Clubbing" in Caesars in Sidari as Teens and Adults with them.

S S, has this warm feeling that ''beckons'' you back, and affects all ages apart from those ''Lager-Louts'' afflicted with Club 18-30 syndrome.
Our typical day has changed over the years, initially we explored a lot more and know the top half of Corfu extremely well, so much so, that we rarely use a map when we drive.
We still take a trip to Corfu Town once a holiday for shopping and a meal.
We would take regular walks to the Harbour (and THE PRE-HARBOUR) area,
up and over the headland and around the local area, mixed in with relaxing on the beach.
When we first went in 1983, there were only 2 Hotels (Golden Beach & Nafsika - Nafsika had the only pool at the time) and 4 tavernas.
These were, the Barras (different name then), the Sunset, Manthos Taverna and Margarita's (attached to the Mini-Market). There were no Pavements, no Tarmac on the roads, just stones and dirt, no streetlamps either, you had to take a torch to go out!
One shop at the Mini-Market - now a supermarket (and Margarita's has closed and been replaced with shops).
Margarita's is/was next door to Summer Dreams Bar!!

These days we book for the best deal. We tend to use our S S holiday to "chill-out" and relax, on the Beach for most of the Holiday.
Depending whether we have booked independently (S/C), or via Thompsons (S/C or H/B), would dictate what we do for beakfast, something from the Bakers or the supermarket, lunch on the Beach would be a snack or bring food from the bakers plus fruit, or visit the Havana , Waves, Manthos, Mistral's or use the Athina pool snack bar, - worked on, just how we felt that day! We also spend the odd day by the pool as well.
We may do a boat trip or hire a car to do a trip out as well, and shop in Sidari occasionaly.
Evenings are spent in a Taverna enjoying a good Meal and conversation, or on to a Bar with music / entertainment - again, depending on how we feel that day!!
All-in-all a great way to relax, chill, de-stress, and re-charge the batteries before the dreaded return to work!!
We find that not only are the people of San Stefanos really great and friendly, it passes on to everyone around them and the visitors soon become the same.
Most people who book a holiday in this wonderful place have a similar outlook anyway so it becomes a really friendly place to be and conducive to making new friends and becoming one of the San Stefanos family!!
