"Situated in the relaxed and picturesque bay of Agios Stefanos (North East Corfu),
you can take in the beautiful views whilst enjoying a delicious cocktail, refreshing beer or local wine."
The island of Corfu has its secrets and Agios Stefanos, or else Kensington-on-sea as it is called by the regulars, set around a horse-shoe shaped bay, is certainly one of them. Agios Stefanos is a small port for fishing boats and yachts, surrounded by lush greenery and located on the North East coast of Corfu. It is also lined up with traditional tavernas and seaside cafeterias. Right next to the port, there is a small pebbled beach to swim.
This little fishing village has now become a very popular ‘up market’ resort with many stylish villas for rent. There is a thriving local Greek community that welcomes its visitors with the warmth and hospitality Greece is famous for. This village is extremely pretty and is situated within the shelter of hills that sweep down on either side, making it a very safe harbour. A car or boat is essential for exploring.
Agios Stefanos is a quiet resort. Mainly attractive to couples but popular with larger families during school holidays. During the day there are plenty of comings-and-goings with boats, always amusing to watch. The bars and tavernas are not usually noisy, but during the height of the season there are some visitors who liven things up a little more at night. Whether you like ‘pottering’ to a quiet holiday routine, or enjoy renting a boat for some gentle exploration of the beautiful coastline, there is something for everyone in Agios Stefanos.
Corfu is a Greek island in the Ionian Sea. It is the second largest of the Ionian Islands and, including its small satellite islands: Ereikoussa, Mathraki and Othonoi, forms the edge of the northwestern frontier of Greece.
Corfu is one of the more popular Greek holiday islands and is well served by charter and budget airlines. This beautiful, lush green Greek island comes as an unexpected and unforgettable surprise for first time visitors. Avoiding the busier south, Perfect Blue offer hand-picked properties among the picture postcard fishing harbours of the north-east and sandy bays on the west coast.
The island is bound with the history of Greece from the beginning of Greek mythology. Its Greek name, Kerkyra or Korkyra, is related to two powerful water symbols: Poseidon, god of the sea, and Asopos, an important Greek mainland river. Corfu’s history is laden with battles and conquests. The legacy of these struggles is visible in the form of castles punctuating strategic locations across the island.
