We stayed at these apartments for a week in September 2012 before moving to Roda in the north of Corfu for a second week, and these two resorts were the perfect combination for us.
The Lido Sophia apartments/studios in Agios Gordios are traditional, with friendly, helpful owners and a lovely pool area. The owners have a contract with a Dutch holiday company so most of the guests who stay there are Dutch. All the rooms have fantastic views over the resort and to the sea, the beds are comfortable, and the small kitchens are sufficient for breakfast and snacks.
However I need to mention the hill climb up from the resort to the apartments so that other potential guests are aware of this. There are no bars or restaurants in the immediate area so you are obliged to walk into the resort centre. This is fine on the way down, but not so good on the way back! I would say if you have any mobility issues, or are elderly, then you will struggle. There are no taxis in Agios Gordios. However there is a mini-market directly accross the road from the apartments so no need to worry about carrying shopping back up from the resort.
Also, we experienced three days of rain whilst in Agios Gordios which in itself is not unusal for Corfu so I was prepared for the possibility of some bad weather. However we had no hot water in the apartment at all during these three days. And the 15 minute uphill walk from the resort was pergatory in torrential rain!
We loved Agios Gordios. It is small, beautiful and traditional. The restaurants we visited were all very good. There are three or four bars, each different, and a handfull of souvenier shops and mini-markets. The villagers are welcoming and friendly, and we will definitely be returning to this fantastic little resort.
