Agios (Saint) Stephanos (NW) Corfu

Back to Top of Page Ag Stefanos NW


Ag Stefanos NW, Agios (Saint) Stephanos (NW), Corfu Resort Guide, Corfu Travel Guide
A small family resort and village in a cove, with a large sandy beach - it reminds me of a small Cornish seaside resort. This is the Agios Stefanos, (Avliotes) of the North West coast, not to be confused with one of the same name on the North East coast. Agios means Saint in Greek, therefore you may see both of them referred to as St Stefanos also. A good resort for those visitors who want everything on their doorstep - but nothing too touristy

The Beach, Agios (Saint) Stephanos (NW), Corfu Resort Guide, Corfu Travel Guide
The beach of Agios Stephanos is a wide sandy beach which ensures a most enjoyable beach holiday.


Type
Sandy
Sunbeds
Yes

The Beach, Agios (Saint) Stephanos (NW), Corfu Resort Guide, Corfu Travel Guide
Facilities
Showers and toilets.
Child Suitability
Ideal - although the cars do park close to the beach. Otherwise the large expanse of clean and and blue shallow water are ideal for children.
Accessibility
The parking is right on the beach - next to the board walks. I was worried about getting the car stuck, but the sand was surprisingly firm.
Cleanliness and Urchins
It is a clean - blue flag beach. There are no urchins.

Arillas

A sleepy little seaside resort on the North West coast, with a large sandy cove and a few fishing boats.
Peroulathes with its famous cliffs and views are a must. Also a short dirve or good walk will take you to Arillas.

Back to Top of Page How to get there by Car

Difficult! The roads are narrow and it is off the beaten track a little - hence it seems to escape the crowds. Follow the map! From Sidari, drive to Peroulathes - stopping for the view of course. As you leave sunset beach, turn right and follow the signposts to Avliotes. This road will take you to St Stefanos.

Hi all, 

Recently had a lovely holiday in Corfu, exploring Agios Stefanos, Kalami, Agni etc. 
Even brought a fishing rod and had a quick go and to my delight I caught something! 

Can anyone ID the fish below? Would love to know what I caught!

Thanks,

Google for Corfu, Agios Stefanos, Villa Foula, Villa Magda - you should get a link from that. The same lady owns both and both have infinity pools.
We stayed at Villa Foula two/three years ago and my mum loved watching all of the traffic on both road and water. I know that the villas have been refurbished since then.
Good position and there is a short cut down the hill, up the hill is better by road as the hill is quite steep. You will need a torch at night.
I hope this helps.

Hi,
Having stayed in Agios Stefanos this year for one night, I was wondering if there is a really nice accommodation that could be recommended? We stayed at the Villa Voula, which was very nice but a little out of town and the toilet in the apartment had to have a manual flush, (we had to fill it up with the shower head before we could get it to flush) but still lovely pool and bar and the people were lovely, just a bit out of town.
Also I thought it might be good to mention that the breakfast's in the Condor Bar are fantastic and the Zorras Restaurant for the night life is very entertaining, I would highly recommend anyone who's staying for the first time to go to both f these places.

Please inbox me on recommendations to stay... Thank You in advance. x

GREAT NEWS,
For those of you who use public transport the extra service extending the KTEL service from Agios Stefanos(Avliotes) to Arillas and Ag.Georgios(Pagi) opens up lots of possibilities. It means those catching the bus in Kassiopi travelling through Roda and Acharavi can now change buses in Sidari and go to any of those places. Those staying in Ag Georgios and all other resorts on the way can travel all the way through to Kassiopi by changing in Sidari.. I hope they have success with this as it opens up independent travelling for those who want to use local transport more extensively. The times should be up on your bus stops along this route.
ROUTE..Kassiopi Acharavi Roda Sidari (CHANGE) Ag Stefanos (Avliotes) Arillas Ag Georgios(Pagi)

Thanks to Jeni from Jeni's Cafe in Sidari for the information.

I am going to Sidari in a week's time and have a few questions about cycling over there. First question is whether it is generally safe to cycle in Sidari and surrounding places, like for example, are the roads safe to go from Sidari to Canal d'Amour, Agios Stefanos (on the North) or Agios Georgios (on the East) beaches?
Is there a good place to hire a bicycle with a child's seat?

Thank you in advance for the replies.

Over 20 years to Corfu and not ventured around, WOW what have you been missing? For an exploratory scenic drive you must drive down the west coast from Sidari via San Stefanos, Arillas, Afionas, Agios Georgios north and then over the 'top' and down to Paleokastritsa. Afionas is on the top of a headland and is a real little gem where you can sit in a friendly taverna just taking in the stunning views in 2 directions. (Park in the main street).
Up the hill from Agios Georgios is the old village of Pagi and a visit to sit outside 'Jimmy's', otherwise known as the  007 cafe, with the locals and other visitors. You have to drive through the village to park easily and then walk back.
From Pagi drive up the 'hill' (mountain) through Prinilas and on to Makrades from where you can take a diversion to visit the ancient hill fort ruins of Angelokastro situated on the top of a rock.
From Makrades drive down the winding road to Paleokastritsa with superb views all the way down.
That's one superb drive for your notebook, but I advise you to make into 2 or 3 to get the best out of it!

Canarydave,
You are correct.

The municipal unit Kassopaia is subdivided into the following communities (constituent villages in brackets):

  • Gimari (Gimari, Vlachatika, Kavalleraina, Kalami, Kentroma, Plagia, Rachi)
  • Kassiopi (Kassiopi, Agios Georgios, Imerolia, Kellia, Lithiasmenos, Pigi, Plateia, Podolakkos, Psyllos dyo, Psyllos ena)
  • Nisaki (Nisaki, Apolysoi, Vinglatouri, Katavolos)
  • Sini (Agnitsini, Agios Stefanos Kassiopi, Vingla, Karyotiko, Kokkini, Kokkokylas, Kremithas, Mengoulas, Porta, Rou, Santa, Sarakinatika, Tritsi)

Try Alfa Taxis, they cover the North of the island. I am assuming you mean Agios Stefanos NE as you need to be clear on this when booking as there is an Agios Stefanos NW too.

Thanks for the advice about Arillas, sounds just our cup of tea. We always get a car when we visit, so on our list for next year. Visited San Stefanos, Agios Gordis, and several mountain villages, but somehow missed Arillas. Price is also a big factor for us now when booking holidays. Been lucky with flights and accommodation, but good to know spends go further. We have not found Kassiopi too bad on prices, depending where you eat and drink. Biggest rip off this year was a gin and tonic in one bar, 7 and a half Euro!! Got it in another for 3 Euro. We like the variety of tavernas and love a gyro at lunch or after drinks for supper. Are there a good choice of tavernas there. Does not have to be too lively for us, just enough tavernas and bars to stroll to and chill. Thanks lol xxx

Hi, 
If you went to Sidari 10 years ago it is far more commercialised now, especially if you go in July and August. If you want somewhere where you can find a few bars, restaurants with little banging night life I think that you would be far better considering Kassiopi, Arillas, St.George NW, San Stephanos NW.
If you access this link and then click on Bliss sites, you will be able to see many resorts.

Agios Stefanos is the village before Kassiopi, you turn off at Sines and just follow the road down, it's a tiny pretty place with a handful of tavernas about 15 minutes by car. When we first came to Kassiopi the Thomson rep told us to go to Gianni and we have used him ever since, lovely chap and its lovely to sit in a bar right on the waters edge when you come back in, as Bob said they often tell you not to get back until 6pm which just gives you that bit longer if going right down to Nissaki and its worth it.

Contact them for more details.

Also if it appeals and you can get there,  the Sunfun Club water sports at Agios Georgios do a BBQ trip from Agios Georgios to Mathraki for 35euros per person. http://sunfunclub.blogspot.co.uk/

No I haven't, not sure we would be in it long! Speeding around the headland would only take a few minutes!!! However I bet my little boy would love it! Would be worth having though as the second week we are over in Agios Stefanos and it may be a little quiet (may be perfect, not sure yet!) so we could always get out and about by taxi boat. If you do have it and it's not difficult to find I would appreciate it.

Thanks. Love this forum for all the helpful advice  It will make our holiday even more special.

OK, thanks.  That's what I was guessing, but I wasn't sure if they hadn't just changed them all permanently.

The tricky bit is Sidari, where some of the buses going there actually keep going on to Agios Stefanos. But they're all timetabled to and from Corfu town, so it's like solving differential equations to work out the buses that run between the two villages.

Firstly for transfers under 1 hour to the northern resorts you are looking at taxis not the Tour Operators' bus transfers which can take anything from 90 minutes to 4 hours in extreme cases.

You mentioned Arillas and Agios Georgios north both of which are lovely places to stay and Agios Stefanos NW has a great beach too.

If you want accommodation right at the beach in Agios Georgios then Houmis self-catering apartments come into mind or for a hotel Costas Golden Beach, which is  a Thomsons hotel, fits the bill. Taxi journey takes about 45 minutes which cost last year was about 50-55 euros each way.
The beach is very long and the sand is soft and deep but a bit gritty.

To be fair the beach at Agios Stefanos is firmer for a 2 year old than AG.

San Stefano Travel sell a combined boat trip to Mathraki and Othoni which leaves the harbour at 09.30 every Friday. http://www.san-stefano.gr/trips_boat.php.   Bear in mind that the harbour at Agios Stefanos is not in the centre of the resort. I would estimate the car journey from Paleo would take about 45 minutes assuming you don't go wrong on the twisty route so allow an hour. I would suggest that the quickest route would be though Doukades and then over the Troumbeta Pass to Agros, Dafni etc rather than the scenic way through Makrades and Agios Georgios.

I don't know what other boat trips there are now to Mathraki but the web-site http://www.mathraki-island.com/3_travelling.htm lists a packet boat the Pegasos leaving the harbour at 10.30  Monday, Wednesday and Saturday (not sure how up-to-date this page is though so need checking out).

The ATM in Arillas has a history of being 'here today ... gone tomorrow'.  Currently there IS an ATM machine  in Arillas which was installed last Autumn by Citibank after the previous one had been removed by the operating bank, Eurobank, on economic grounds.  It hadn't been in for long and it took a pot of local pressure to get it the 1st time. I understand it helped that the then bank manager regularly visited Arillas beach.
The new one was only installed after much lobbying and pressure by local business owners, especially Dimitris, owner of Brouklis Restaurant there. The banks had previously argued that there were insufficient visitors to Arillas to justify one but Dimitris pointed that the old one had also served visitors from Agios Georgios and San Stefanos (maybe because theirs was out of action so much). It will ONLY be operating during the summer holiday season.

If a busier resort like Arillas had such a struggle to get their ATM re-installed I cannot foresee one being installed in Agios Georgios at any time in the foreseeable future (especially if AG visitor numbers may have been taken into account in justification for the Arillas one!!!). I hope I am wrong!  I know that in the past the Agios Georgios business have tried several times to get the banks to install one, possibly in a hotel foyer as was done in San Stef at Thomas Bay Hotel, but have been unsuccessful ... and that was in better economic times. Maybe they should try to find a bank manager who visits the lovely beach at Agios Georgios and try again!!

Hi Linzechris,

We all have our ideas of the best resort on the island including pro's and con's. The best we can do is give you as much information as we can for you to choose a resort which matches your needs.

Here is a link to a 360 degree view of San Stef which may help.

If you decide on Agios Stefanos or Arillas ask the exact situation of the accommodation and clarify on this forum whether it is on a hill or not as some apartments are on quite steep hills in both resorts.
In Agios Georgios north the bulk of the accommodation units are on the flat.
My wife and I now have arthritis and back problems and cannot walk very much so we ensure we have a good time by just spending a bit more money on our holiday to hire a small car for running around locally.  It enables us to visit lovely places like Afionas, Paleokastritsa and some nearby quiet villages as often as we want. We can still do some of our favourite walks but drive some of the route before leaving the car.
May is a lovely time to visit Corfu because it is so fresh and the wild flowers are still blooming before they die back for the hot summer.

One other question is the ATM still available in Arillas
[/QUOTE]
Hopefully the ATM will be still there in Arillas this summer! It was removed last year as was the one in Agros, but the Arillas ATM was thankfully replaced in the autumn. The banks closed them for economic reasons so anything could happen this year. It is best therefore to be prepared for such problems and do like visitors used to do which is take some sterling cash and travellers cheques which can be exchange easily in the hotels.
There is usually an ATM in Agios Stefanos as well if that is any use to you but last year there were complaints that it refused some debit cards!

I have impulsively booked a flight to Corfu today arriving on Easter Monday which is 1st April. I know that the holiday season does not really start until May, and am a little worried about things being shut. We plan to stay in the North East and are looking at Agios Stefanos, Kaminaki, Avlaki, Barbati. We will have a car but would rather not drive in the evening as we would like wine with our meal. Any advice would be appreciated...

Sorry I haven't explained myself very well.  We are spending a week in Kassiopi and then going onto Ag Stef (NE) for the second week, so I put it in as a one way trip.
 
I was hoping we could just order a taxi from Kassiopi over to the second resort on the day of departure as it isn't too far.
 
We will then need the return from Agios Stefanos to the airport.
 
Thanks again.

Hello there, my name is Ted and I am a new member. We are planning to live in Corfu in 2013 from March to December with a view to possibly moving there permanently over the next two years. We have made some great friends Agios Stefanos namely Kerry and Nikos at the Ozzy Oil restaurant and Shane and Sandra at the Juice Bar. We are planning to drive down to Corfu with our two dogs in late March 2013 and I wondered if anyone has any information about using the ferry to Corfu, timetables, if they run year round (we are going back to the UK in December for a month before returning in January 2014) if they are OK with pets, rough crossing times, cost - any info at all would be so brilliant. None of the ferry companies have any timetables for 2013 so any useful info would be very much appreciated. Many thanks for any input. Kind regards. Ted.

It all depends on what you are looking for from a holiday. If it is a quiet resort with a good beach then Arillas, and San Stefanos in the next bay, are both great resorts. You may find that there are more packages available to San Stefanos.
San Stafanos has a long, flat, gently sloping sandy beach. Really great if you have small children.
Arillas beach is not so big, and tends to suffer from the sea shifting sand around, so sometimes it is really good and sometimes it is quite narrow in some places. But it is a really nice beach and you can walk to the far North and South ends of the beach which are both very secluded. These ends are favourite haunts for naturists, but it is not essential that you join in if you don't want too - just be aware that they are there if any of your party might be offended by such things.
Both resorts have great places to eat, and there is plenty of choice at both resorts to suit most everybody, although overall there are more places in San Stefanos as it is a slightly larger resort.
Neither resort has what you would call a "noisy" night-life, although both have a couple of good bars where you can listen to music and they sometimes have live performers.
It is possible to walk along the roads between the resorts, or there is a shorter route over the headland between the two bays, and there is a really great taverna at the top where you can rest and get some liquid refreshment whilst enjoying the stunning views, but you may find both of these routes a little too much of a walk if you are not really into walking, particularly after a big evening meal!
Meanwhile, to get a better idea of Arillas there is not only a live camera on this site -
http://www.arillas.com/web-cam/
which will give you a good view of the bay, but there is also a website which shows a "virtual" tour of Arillas here:-
http://arillas.corfu360.net/
You can get a virtual tour of San Stefanos beach here:-
http://www.agiosstefanos.corfu360.net/
Whichever one you choose, you will have a great holiday.

Hi Bleaberry,
We are going just outside Kassiopi Corfu, love this area and Agios Stefanos on the NE coast.

Hi, 
No need to apologise, but it will obviously have a bearing on the cost. Smile
There are taxis that wait just opposite the Travel Corner in Kassiopi near to the square. Probably best to use these as they are not coming from elsewhere. Just approach them and ask them how much it will be to go to Agios Stefanos. Hope that this helps. Smile

Hi,
It all depends on which Agios Stephanos/Stefanos you mean. NE or NW?

Very nice but a little quiet. Nice for a day or night out but not sure I could spend a period of time there but could not go with out a trip there on our yearly trip. Every one has different tastes sure you will enjoy it. Have a great time, we usually stay in Sidari but stayed at Agios Stefanos last year but ended up most nights in Sidari, sad I know hence we are back there this year and will save money by not hiring a car to get there, the bug bear of having teenagers. Love em really. Have a great holiday.

Hi,
Depends on what you are looking for. Arillas is a lovely little resort, but far, far quieter than Sidari. It has several family run tavernas and a lovely sandy beach, that has  shallow water. 
Arillas beach being between Agios Georgios and Agios Stefanos bays, allows access to these other sandy beaches as well.

Hi Phil,
There is a map on Avlaki beach that shows the footpaths that lead round the headland through the nature reserve to Agios Stefanos, we have never walked it, only visted the beaches when we hired a small boat with friends but they are gorgeous.
Think I saw you say you are staying at Katia beach, so are we, arrving 26 May, happy days.
 
Cheers Sue

You would find a different Agios Stefanos if you went back now Kebabx, the village is still chilled and friendly as it’s ever been with a lot of the original owners still there. Speros now runs the Nafsika with his father George taking a back seat now but still helping out with Theodora still running the kitchen.

As with all places things change and there are numerous Tavernas and restaurants now. In fact the village is split in two. You have the newer and relatively busy part as you wind down the hill from the Romanza (this was more or less empty when I first went in 1989) But the older part, where the Nafsika is, is still quiet and peaceful and relatively unchanged.

A high percentage are repeat visitors, including myself,   which tells you all you need to know Smile

Have a look at www.arillas.com.
There are a couple of travel shops in the resort where you can book local trips, without using the Tour Operators. There are boat trips to islands and Paleokatritsa etc, shopping trips in Corfu Town, Greek nights and lots more.

The resort is small and all walkable. You won't get lost. There are signposts to Afionas and Agios Stefanos and back again to Arillas. Where are you staying?

When you want a change from the beach or pool  why not consider a trip.  If you are travelling on a 'package holiday' your tour operator will no doubt try to sell these to you but, before you book, check out the local travel agents as they often do the same trips much cheaper.

May I suggest hiring a boat for a few hours ...choose a day when the sea is not choppy (for comfort). You can also book boat trips (which leave from Agios Stefanos harbour) out to the islands.

I also suggest hiring a small car for a few days.  That way you can really get to see some more of beautiful Corfu.   It is a shame to pay a lot for your holiday and miss so much for the sake of about 40 euros per day (plus petrol).  Then you can visit Afionas more than once and sit at one of the lovely tavernas taking in the views!!

As reported elsewhere on this Forum  the ATM cash machine in the centre of Agros village has sadly now been removed. This is a backward step and it will be missed by many residents and visitors to the area.
The nearest now to Agios Georgios is in Agios Stefanos at the Thomas Bay Hotel.

I hope I will be proved wrong but I doubt there will be an ATM machine in Arillas this summer. The last one was taken away by the bank for economic reasons and personally I cannot see the present economic conditions will convince the bank to repeat its experience. I believe the business owners are currently lobbying the bank to get the ATM returned.
Your nearest one will be over the hill in Agios Stefanos, a 30minute walk. But if you intend hiring a bike or car for a day or so, as many visitors do, it is no trouble to pick your cash up on one of your trips. Besides Ag Stef several of the larger villages in the area have them
Visit the Forum on arillas.com for instructions on walking to Ag Stef, and also for updates on the ATM situation.

We have been visiting Agios Georgios for 18 years and there has been no ATM there at all. Visitors there just adapt.

Thanks for the advice everyone, will stick with Sea View in Nissaki but am toying with the idea of Angelicas over in Agios Gordis as well, so now it's between those two.
The trouble is every place is unique in Corfu and I love so many places. In the summer we are going to San Stefanos for 2 weeks as we loved the place we stayed at so much, then we are going down to Messonghi for the last week which will be our 4th visit to Kerkyra Island apartments.
They are in such a beautiful place and easily accessable by bike or car or even walking to so many of the lesser visited southern towns and beaches.
Sorry for rambling on, what I was going to say was May half term week is when I try somewhere new and do a bit of walking , I have never stayed in Nissaki but stayed in Agios Gordis twice at Sebastians, but didn't walk to Pendati or anywhere as it was August and too hot.
So what's it to be?
I love the East coast and I also love the West coast.....as Harry Hill would say!!!

We always stay in Agios Stefanos NW but enjoy a walk into Arillas to get some exercise and to have a change of scenery. We make a point of stopping in Gravia for a drink on our outbound walk and Anna's Apartments on our inbound.
We have never eaten in Arillas. Where would you suggest for a light lunch? Is there anywhere that does Giros Pita?
