Sidari
« on: April 16, 2015, 06:49:21 PM »
Don't groan everyone, I just have a couple of simple questions that you may help me with.  The wife and I are quite good walkers and we have done most if not all of the walks in and around San Stef.  I think I recall some forum member saying that they did the walk to Sidari.  If so, how long do you think it would take us to get to Sidari from San Stef?

Also can anyone recommend a nice taverna in Sidari that we could lunch at.  After our lunch with wine we hopefully want to get a taxi back to San Stef, is this a problem?

Thanks in advance.

Can't help with how long it will take but you could get the green bus back, direct from Sidari to San Stef. From memory it picks up around 3pm outside the 3 little pigs taverna (or some similar name) Will be a good few euro cheaper than getting a taxi.

Just to add if you did get taxi back the taxi rank is next to the Hotel Mimosa in the centre across from main beach and a little tip maybe avoid Monday's & Fridays as taxi's are often on airport transfers so you may have to wait - any other day mostly  okay. The local bus though is fine and as stated pick up just on junction by 3 Little Pigs close to Jenni's Cafe.

D@G, Lesley, thanks very much.  That's a good idea getting the bus.  I went on google earth and it told me that it would take 1 hour and 45 minutes to walk.  The wife and I can manage that no problem.

Anyone know of any good tavernas for lunch in Sidari?

There's a  nice little place beside the beach at the junction where the bus stops in the centre of Sidari. Can't remember the name. That's about the only good thing I have to say about Sidari!

It may be better to take the bus to Sidari and walk back via Peroulades. It's probably a more shallow climb than SS to the top.

Yes I believe it is. We called in for drinks whilst waiting for the bus, nice little place. Would happily have eaten there if there was time.

We had a late breakfast in Sidari in a place that backed onto the beach, was accessible from the main street too. Very cheap full English at around €3.50 and was as good as any in San Stef. Plenty of Greek dishes on the menu too.

Thanks benson, thanks Jimbo.  Jimbo, I know what you are saying about Sidari.  In fact the wife doesn't want to venture there at all.  The most we have seen of Sidari has been when we whizzed by on our quad.  However it's mainly the walk that I'm interested in.  We would probably set off 10:30 am so that the timing for lunch would be good.  I do like the odd glass of wine with my food so I can't imagine I would be too enthusiastic about walking back.  Get my drift?  Hic!

Never done the Peroulades to Sidari bit. But we have done the Avliotes to Perouldes a few times.

Might do the other this year - but probably the other way round. Ag Stef to Avliotes is a bit of a climb!

Or how about getting bus from Agios Stefanos to the junction before Sidari getting off here turn left and head towards Peroulades and Logos Beach, drinks at 7th Heaven then head back same way stopping before the small roundabout in Peroulades at Yiannis Grill local wine and a good menu (Yiannis Grill have a FaceBook page) so you can have a look there.  Then depending on timing you could get the bus which calls into Peroulades and heads upto Avliotes get off there and then walk downhill to Agios Stefanos..... Not all the buses go the whole way to Agios Stefanos some stopping at the Olive Press just outside resort......

We normally pop over to Sidari when we have a quad bike, which takes about 15-20 mins, so an estimated 1hr 30/45mins sounds about right. One place we've always meant to try, which always looks nice and had many good reviews in the past is The Orchard:

Its San Stef side of Sidari as well, just in case you made it this far and couldn't drag yourselves away!!  ;D
