 Have you tried Irene Apartments right in the center. Great accommodation and a fabulous swimming pool.

Agios Gordios looks great, it is definitely on my shortlist.  I have sent requests to a few apartments there already, hopefully they will come back with reasonable rates! I will let you know where I end up!

Have you thought of visiting the west coast. A traditional resort with a good beach, lots of first class taverna's and reasonable level of night to suit most tastes. Only 30 minutes from the airport with a reliable bus service should you wish to explore Corfu town. Add to this some of the best sunsets to watch as you enjoy an evening drink on the beachfront. If this scenario appeals to you, Agios Gordios could be worth thinking about. There is only one big hotel but plenty or reasonable priced accommodation.

That's great thank you Gerry. I will have a look at all those now. Wish I could book a month there and stay all over the island. I know I am not going to want to leave!

Well being a "southerner" I believe they may be "cheaper" than the N.E. resorts? Try the Christina Hotel in Messonghi I'm staying there in September.
There are a lot of tavernas in both but for a good day out try Petriti?
Hope this helps?

Thank you Gerry, I do like the look of this area as the two resorts are quite close to one another. Do you know what the prices are like in this area, for meals out including the odd Greek lager of course! I know some resorts are more expensive than others. And any accommodation recommendations would be appreciated too!

Why not "check out" Messonghi/Moritika could "tick" all the boxes ?

Thank you for your help, I have not looked at Arillas at all!  I shall check it out now. I admit I have been looking at places that are about 30 minutes from the airport due so as not to have too much of a transfer cost and time! Thank you again.

I would suggest looking at Arillas, Roda, St. George NW (Pagi), San Stephanos NW. All are family orientated and quiet, but you can find busier bars. Sorry but really only know the NW, sure others here can recommend others. Arillas really fits your bill but I am biased as I love it there.

Hi all, I have booked flights to arrive on the 17 July for 2 weeks in Corfu with my partner and son (10 years old).
I have trailed through all the reports on the different resorts and I am still undecided!  There are so many lovely places to pick from! We like to have a bit of night life but not of the Kavos kind, we like traditional places so not too commercial.  We would like a lovely beach for a 10 year old to enjoy.  Lots of taverna's to choose from and good bars to have a chill out in too!  Accommodation is also a factor self catering preferable.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!  I have always gone to Crete as I lived there for many years, but I am determined to try out a new island!Big smile
