San Stefanos news and views / olympia apartments
« on: October 16, 2015, 11:45:50 PM »
has anyone stayed in the Olympia apartments>?  I love the location - I did speak to Stelios this year who told me he doesn't allow children in the apartments which I suppose makes sense as they are directly above the restaurant.  Another family told me that he is going to be renovating a bungalow on his site - does anyone know anymore about this?

Has anyone got any more information on the new villa de la mer?  I've seen it on the Corfu selections web site but can't work out exactly where it is.  Any advice would be appreciated

Thank you :)

Where to stay / Tereza Hotel

Half board or not half board?  That is the question I am asking from all you experienced followers of Tereza - never been - but am being tempted to try the 'other side' of Ag Stef.  Not the old village - would like a different perspective and really fancy Tereza's - any info and help gratefully received.  Thank you!

Well, here we are.............back and the holiday/wedding hype is all over.  Had a good time and a lovely wedding but have to say not as relaxed as usual due to so many of us being there and that leading to making sure everyone ok etc.  It was REALLY hot.  Apparently in Arillas last Wednesday temperature reached 51 in the sun.  Phew.

Eating out -

We enjoyed our meals at : Nafsika (amazing sea bass/mousakka etc)
                                       Olympia (PERFECT)
                                       Delfino Blu
                                       Mistral (yummy lunches)
                                       2 Stars (such lovely people and so so warm)
                                       Jasmine Pool bar (Try it - such great cooking and such a wonderful owner, Spiros - George/Barras son)
                                       Fedra Mare - Hari's ALWAYS perfect breakfasts
                                       Waves - did an amazing job with 45 of us!
                                       Tasty Corner - amazing kebabs
                                       Gravia - fresh salads

A group of 30 of us had a disastrous meal at Yiannis - waited 3 and half hours for it!!  I think they should have said they couldn't cope with the group.

An interesting night with Rat Pack singer at 3W Internet - entertaining but missed Darren May who is just brilliant - hope he succeeds in his fight for good health.  Saw Keith Mitchell and Groucho. 

The wedding was simply stunning at Delfino Blu - I was photographing people as they arrived and their mouths opened at the setting and location.  The wedding was postponed until 8pm because of the heat and the pergola was set out on the beach and the sun set perfectly behind it.  Kostas the owner certainly knows what he is doing business wise,  the hotel just keeps on improving.  The friendliness and warmth of the staff is a massive asset.  The mango bar is such a wonderful place to be whilst on the beach - where else would the bed man (Alex) buy you a drink?

What would I say stood out above all else this holiday? The people - they are just wonderful......always remembering you and going the extra mile. The beach was my biggest shock - I couldn't get over the shrinking beach.  Kostas (Delfino) said they had had catastrophic rain in February but on May 16th it 'was like a tsunami and the sand disappeared' .  They have had to build up an area outside Mango in order to get any sun beds in!  It has changed beyond recognition at the nudist end.  I hope it doesn't end up like Arillas but must say it is looking that way.  We stayed at Christina's apartments which were really, really good - the views are amazing, we woke to a panoramic view of the shrinking beach and the village.  My son and new daughter in law and daughter and son in law (from Australia0 stayed in fedra Mare which was, as usual, perfect with wonderful hosts Dimitris and Charitini.  My brother, Mum and family styed in Jasmine Pool bar apartments, basic but spotless and an amazing pool bar ran by lovely Spiros and family.   Others stayed at Sugar and Almond (fab), Kapetanious (great) Athina (good) Perros (great) and of course the lucky folk at the Delfino.

Well that's me done until next time - hope all of you with holidays to come love it as much as I do.

ps  I shook hands with Jimbo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
