This was our first visit to Corfu and after much searching I found the Ifigenia in Agios Stefinos. We where travelling with our friends and their two sons so there where many things on the wish list! The Ifigenia looked like it might fit the requirements and after researching the area we booked with Leonidas, who was so very helpful and very quick to answer any of our queries. We where not disappointed in any way, Leo arranged our transfers and and was on hand if we needed his help. The village setting was lovely and the apartment just as advertised, superb clean, well fitted and equipped with a beautiful large balcony for those lazy moments! The stunning beach is just as stated a five minute stroll down the lane passing more restaurants and shops of interest . The 2kilm. beach is sandy and safe especially for families , there are a choice of tavernas and sun beds, boats for hire, paragliding, doughnut rides, jet ski and stunning walks. The local people are so friendly and welcoming and the food delicious. There are many Swimming pools around the village that are open to the public , the choice is yours, along with cafes,restaurants and shops. The local buses run regularly and we took a trip into nearby Sidari which is a busy seaside town.
We all had a wonderful time in Stefanos and are already arranging our trip back to the Ifigenia.
We would just like to extend our thanks to Leo and his lovely mum .
Leo's apartment really does have it all; firstly the apartment itself is stunning, elegantly decorated (looks even better than the photos) with everything you could ever need inside. We stayed for a week however we could have easily lived there! Leo has thought of everything, from fabulous bathrooms and interior, to smaller details like a dishwasher, smart TV, coffee machine even a USB phone charger. The huge terrace is it's biggest asset, which catches the sun all day but also always has some shaded parts, it is equipped with sun loungers, and table and chairs (great for breakfast, lunch and of course wine! )
Secondly the location is perfect, very close to the beach (a genuine 5 minute walk) and in the middle of the town area, various tavernas, bars and shops, however due to being a second story apartment you can enjoy all this whilst still having your own privacy with the terrace not being overlooked.
I cannot recommend this place enough! Leo and his family are so friendly and helpful, he cannot do enough for you and is also on the end of the phone if you need him. Leo drove us to and from the airport, he has alot of interesting stories about Corfu and it's history which he tells in a very enjoyable way. We cannot wait to return
This beautiful apartment provided everything we could have detailed on our 'wish list'... thoughtfully decorated and spacious rooms, air conditioning, and a well equipped kitchen. The beautiful and completely private terrace provides sunshine and shade throughout the day and so is ideal for topping up the tan, dining al fresco or cooling off in the shade with a good book! Location couldn't be better, with the lovely beach of Agios Stefanos an easy 5 minute stroll from your door. We dined at most of the tavernas available in the town (within minutes walk from the apartment)- and whilst we had our favourites, all provided quality home cooked food, always delivered with a friendly smile. The warm, friendly and thoughtful service provided by Leo and his family is outstanding! I look forward to returning to this lovely holiday rental.
A very nice apartment near to the strip and the sea. Well located for the life of the resort only 20 yards from the main strip and next door to a large Taverna that does Greek dancing. Only about 150 yards to the sea, sadly cannot be seen for the large bamboo.
The apartment is situated above the shop in a shop complex lot of steps so not suitable for some people.It, is very well equipped with everything that you may need to self cater. No hot tub as mentioned by a previous reviewer but does have a small slipper bath with shower over. The owner Leo was very helpful.
We have booked this apartment twice now, once in 2015 and last year 2016. Lovely apartment in the centre of the village Location is perfect, just a 5 minute walk to the beach. Leo the owner and his family are so kind and helpful and always at the end of the phone for any information required. The apartment has everything you need for a family holiday and a massive terrace to enjoy the sun and watch the world go by. I love this apartment and village and would thoroughly recommend it as a holiday rental.
