Corfu or School?? Corfu or School?? No contest really!! Try 1st week in August, more time to save up, more Children around in the resort and still under £390 for the 2 of you including bags and day time flights.

If you go for Theofilus we will be in the bungalow opposite when you are there.
We would be more than happy to introduce you to the many friends we have met there over the years.
Seasons bar is just at the end of the lane and has computers and pool for your lad and the owners eldest son is about your lads age.
Last time we were there he even brought his playstation down for our lads to play with.

Sadly can't really go during term time, although contemplating taking son out of school for 2 days so we can go for 10 days.
And if there are cheaper flights in August I might have to go back again We usually go away in August but my eldest son has recently started his Royal Marine Commando training and his Passing Out could be around then, hence the earlier dates.
Bob n Rosey, that's really kind of you to offer to meet. I will definitely take you up on that if we stay at the Theofilos. I've emailed the places on my shortlist to check availability so may leave it to fate...
My son has fond memories of our holiday in Northern Cyprus 3 years ago, but I'm sure if I could cope with the longer flight time and journey with him as he doesn't do sitting still.

I've been busy emailing some of my choices, unfortunately haven't yet secured the right deal for the right flight dates but still waiting to hear from a couple of places. Theofilos can't do our exact dates but can accommodate us at Pagona house next door. My son isn't keen though as he wanted to be able to step out to the pool or sea.
I've also been looking at Agios Gordios as this has been recommended by a few people. It looks lovely and I particularly like the look of Stevens on the Hill and Sebastians. I've emailed the owners to check availability, but would welcome any recommendations you lovely people can make.
Not sure what I will do in the evenings once I finally book this holiday, I love spending time surfing tinterweb for sunshine

We have been to AG 7 times now and stayed at Sebastians 4 times, in the family villa, both new apartments and a room. They have been reburbished to an even higher standard including power showers. Seb and Tee are great hosts, you will leave feeling part of the family. They have a great Taverna with Anna running the kitchen, she is a superb cook. Plenty of other Tavernas along the main street and on the beach with some chilled out bars like the Ark who often have live Greek music. If you can handle staying up till the small hours then there is Robins Nest and Mikes Bar. Great sandy beach with water sports, we love it!!

Thanks for that info Nigel. It certainly gets glowing reports on TA so reassuring to also hear first hand from a satisfied customer as well. My only concern was if it would be suitable for my son as most people staying seem to be couples? I realise there is no pool but get the impression that Stevens on the Hill is nearby and available for use. I think I would struggle to decide between the two if they are both available. Do you prefer AG to Kassiopi?

Both places seem attract couples, have only seen a few families on my visits. Beach is only 3 minutes from Sebastians, lots of families there. I like Kassiopi but prefer AG, its just such a friendly little resort. There are other pools that you can use in the resort, Aloha Hotel has a very nice Eco pool overlooking the village, Sea Breeze attracts families, on the beach and a nice Taverna.

Sorry for delay replying!
Last year my son and I stayed at Lofos apartments Kassiopi. On hill overlooking village but only 5 minute walk to centre. Lovely pool with other families so easy to get to meet a few folks. Kassiopi really friendly, I felt very at home wandering around village on evening with my son and we both got talking to other holiday makers of different nationalities who we would bump into through the week. My son liked to fish off the harbour in the evening and when he actually caught a fish, a local helped him unhook it and we let him take it home to cook for his supper.
