Need to decide whether it is best to stay n Barbati or Káto Korakiána (Dassia). We are a family of 6 (with 4 teenagers) and will have a car. Any suggestions please?

Depends when you are going and what you like, are they young teenagers or older?  Ipsos has Planet Ipsos which is a sort of amusement arcade with games machines etc., for kids of all ages.  I have always found it to suit me but have only visited in May and September so not sure I would like it in the busy high season!  As it is situated on the coast road between Dassia and Barbati it may suit you, particularly if you have a car and can get out and about, Corfu town nearby and pretty central for exploring the north of the island.  There is some nice accomodation in the area up the hill towards Kato or along the coast road going out towards Barbati.  Have a browse on some of the accommodation sites such as Travel Republic and Hotels Combined where you can check out peoples reviews.  Just a word of warning, some of the maps showing accommodation locations are a bit iffy when I was looking for availability it showed two accommodations side by side on the map that I know are about 2 miles apart!!

Many thanks for this, especially about Ipsos. Kids are 11,13,15,15 and all boys so they'd love something like this. We are going in July and staying for a whole week. Many thanks once again. With regard to Dassia and Barbati I would assume they'd both have supermarkets/restaurants etc...we have booked a self catering apartment. Looking forward to this holiday Smile

With children at that age Sidari would be ideal.

Plenty of choice of fast food, restaurants, tavernas and bars in the area.  In Ipsos there is a biggish supermarket the AB which has parking at the rear and is over two floors so has a good choice of both local and international products.  Enjoy your holiday.  Cath

 I would go for Barbati as the smaller and quieter of the two.
