San Stefanos news and views / Holiday Insurance
« on: February 22, 2018, 02:13:55 PM »
Hi everyone - I'm just wondering if anyone is able to offer any advice on travel insurance.  I have my travel insurance through my bank which covers both myself and my husband.  However, my husband will be travelling to San Stef alone in May (I am determined to be there SS in September though) and therefore he won't be covered by my insurance.  He is 74 and on some medication but not for any serious conditions and basically just looking for the cheapest option.  Any advice would be welcome  :)

San Stefanos news and views / October Weather
« on: August 12, 2017, 02:49:47 AM »
Just wondering if anyone could give advice on what weather will be like  in Greece mid October?  Due to circumstances we are looking to book holiday around 12th October this year and thinking maybe Zante.  We normally visit Greece May and September and were in  San Stefanos this year May/June as have been for quite a number of years.   We are thinking the weather will be similar to early May but not sure.  Any advice would be welcome.  :)

Where to stay / Hotel Athina
« on: July 11, 2016, 08:25:58 PM »
Hi all - we have booked for the Athina this year and although we have stayed in San Stefanos many times have not stayed at this hotel before.  I was just wondering if anyone has an email address for them as we just wanted to ask a couple of questions. I found a link but it kept timing out so presume it must be out of date.  I would be grateful for any info  :)

Where to stay / September 2016
« on: June 01, 2016, 01:36:08 PM »
Hi all - we have had our May holiday in Skiathos this year which we have really enjoyed but were hoping to book San Stef for September.  There is nothing available at Vicky for Sept and as we really wanted to stay more down in the village without a steep climb we have found that Thomas Bay and Athina have vacancies.  These are half board which we haven't done here before but wondered if anyone has any comments on the food at these two hotels?  Also as we don't like to eat too early in the evening what the meal times are?  Would appreciate any comments  :)

San Stefanos news and views / Meal Prices
« on: August 27, 2015, 02:11:13 AM »
Hi everyone - just wondered if there are many changes to meal prices this year.  We have been surprised the last couple of years or so that prices have remained more or less the same and have wondered how on earth all of the lovely tavernas have managed to stablise their prices and at the same time not seeming to cut down on portion sizes.  Most of their meals I find to be over generous.  Haven't seen any posts on this and was just wondering?

San Stefanos news and views / Silver Star
« on: January 28, 2015, 03:16:19 AM »
Does anyone know what will be happening with the Silver Star this year as I understand sadly that Spiros and Tassos will not be running it this year?  :(

Where to stay / Teresa
« on: August 09, 2014, 10:12:32 PM »
We have been to San Stef many times but are staying at the Teresa in September for the first time and wonder if anyone has any tips about which rooms are best and whether we can put in a request.  I have read mainly all positive reviews but a couple of negative ones about rooms near to where the cats hang around etc.  Any feedback would be appreciated  Diane :)

San Stefanos news and views / Car Hire
« on: May 14, 2014, 01:33:39 PM »
Just wonder if anyone has any tips on car hire please?  We don't normally hire a car in Corfu but my son is off to Crete tomorrow and has been put off by some reviews he has read about people saying they have been tricked into paying extra for damage aready done to car before they hired etc and as the car hire company had their credit card details they just took the extra money.  Any feed back welcome.  :-\

San Stefanos news and views / Today in San Stef
« on: February 15, 2014, 06:16:58 PM »
Just sitting at home looking through the window at the wind and rain and waiting for a dry spell to take the dog out.  Have had a look at San Stef webcam to cheer myself up and saw some lucky person walking along the beach - wish it was me - it looks like a lovely day in Corfu - can't wait for Summer. :)

San Stefanos news and views / Change of flight times - Thomson
« on: December 28, 2013, 02:18:49 AM »
Hope everyone had good Christmas.  Does anyone know if we are able to cancel or change holiday booked with Thomsons as we have been informed today that our flight time to Coru has been changed by 5 hours and we would never have booked it if we had known.  Thomsons do say that they state in their brochure flight times are not guaranteed.  Any comments would be very welcome

San Stefanos news and views / Food in suitcase
« on: September 11, 2013, 08:27:10 PM »
Just wonder if someone could advise me whether it will be OK to take a packet of instant pasta mix in our suitcase.  We are off to Roda next week and won't get to accommodation until about 11.00 pm and as we don't know the area it might be too late to buy a snack  Never tried the instant pasta and it might be awful but can't really think of what else to take?

San Stefanos news and views / Back from Holiday
« on: June 05, 2013, 01:55:04 AM »
Got back yesterday after 2 lovely weeks in San Stefanos.  We stayed at the Vicky Apartments again and had a great holiday.  Seaweed all gone.  It was lovely to meet Lesley who was really friendly and helpful.  Weather a little mixed but nothing to complain about and only had rain during the one night during the storm a few nights ago.
Had some lovely meals as usual and tried the new taverna Mediterranean Village and loved the food there.  Prices seem to be the same as last year.
Went to the Condor and they had Grease and Dirty Dancing tributes on and Keith Mitchell at Athens Bar.  Sadly heard that Jerry James wife has died.  On a happier note it was lovely to see all the friendly faces around the village and we had a lovely night at the Romanza.

Where to eat out in San Stefanos? / Two Stars
« on: April 10, 2013, 10:19:51 PM »
We have had some lovely meals over the last few years in San Stefanos - in fact I don't remember a bad one and am always interested in reading all the comments and recommendations from everyone. I wonder what people think of the Two Stars as I can't remember seeing any comments about it.  We always eat there two or three times and enjoyed our meals there and generally really popular. I know one of the people who ran it (think his name might be Theo?  not sure) had left last year and gone to Roda - but just wondered what others thought about it.  Could it be too close to the Silver Star on a Jerry James night? - ha ha - those are usually the nights we go so that we only have to pop next door.

San Stefanos news and views / Web cam

Missing the web cam - I usually have a look most days and think - not long until May and we'll be walking down the beach. Hope it will be working again soon. :(
