I had a stroke. Fortunately got to A&E in time, and been out of hospital for a week today. But not allowed to fly for a month, alas.

Get well soon Jimbo.  San Stef needs you!

Today we have changed our plans of going for a late lunch at Gravia.  We honestly think we would struggle in this heat.  Bring factor 30 Karen!

..the heat.  My wife and I are in San Stefanos at the moment and the Sun is unbearable.  I actually had a bad day yesterday because of too much sun and I have heard of others also.  I am quite a seasoned sun worshipper and it completely took me by surprise and floored me!  I hope I'm not scaring people, I just thought I would warn all you new arrivals. 
On other news, the village is fairly quiet but all the normal haunts are ticking over.  The rubbish is starting to pile up again!   >:(

Hello cornishmaid18.  As the past posts say, there is a rough but wide track that meanders down to the beach behind Romanza.  Just be careful and it's quite a nice stroll.  However, getting back can be daunting.  My advice would be to take your time.  When the wife and I stayed at the Romanza a few years back we tended to stay more around the pool more than what we would normally do because of the journey back.

However, the Romanza is a cracking hotel with wonderful staff so you will have a great time.  Lovely food too!

Information and help please / Re: Taxi question

When we have stayed in San Stef, we have done an organised trip to Kassiopi.  I'm sure it was with San Stef Travel.  So I was thinking that surely you can do a trip from Kassiopi.  It would be much cheaper than a taxi.  In fact car hire would be cheaper than a taxi.

Nic,  I think Rose Garden have family rooms.  They have a lovely pool area. A little bit out of the way though.

My wife and I have stayed at the Thomas Bay and although the rooms are small, they are clean and adequate.  The food on an evening are a choice of about four varieties for each course.  Four starters, four mains and four desserts.  For the price we paid, we couldn't believe how good the food was.  You will not get gourmet but I am sure there will be something you enjoy.  The staff are brilliant by the way!

I know that this is shameless self-publicity, but there is an Agios Stefanos link. What's happening for me today is that a novella which I wrote the first half of sitting in the bower by the Nafsika pool has gone live on Amazon. I've done a lot of writing over the years at Nafsika, Little Prince and Mistral, and some other stories will be re-published soon and some new ones which have a definite Corfiot theme. Apologies to those who are friends on Facebook who may have already seen this.

Although this is a Kindle e-book, you can read it on anything using the free Kindle-reader app on the Amazon website. Many thanks to the beautiful Denise on here, who was the first forum member to buy it. And, of course, to Lesley and other friends in AgStef who help to make it such a warm and lovely place to be. My group of Hippopots frogs sit in front of my monitor as I work, laughing at my efforts!


Just purchased the novella Jimbo.  I think I will read it in five weeks time whilst I am in San Stef.

At less than a bottle of Mythos, you can get it here:

Out and About / Re: Rubbish on the beach

I'm about to be a bit controversial.  I have just mentioned this subject to my wife and she immediately said "it will be the Greeks".  She is convinced us tourists ALWAYS clear up afterwards, wherever that may be.  She could be right you know.

I remember a couple of years ago when we stayed at the Rose Garden, the area around the water crossing by the tennis courts were a disgrace.  There was rubbish everywhere and obviously a lot of fly tipping was evident.  Now that wouldn't be tourists would it?  ....................
