Apartment is spacious, clean and has everything you need for a wonderful family holiday. It is less than 5 minutes walk to the beach, and close to numerous excellent tavernas plus shops and a bakers. You can use any of the pools at the half dozen or so hotels in the village. Only one we found made a charge of €5, the others are free, though I think it is expected you buy a drink or ice cream whilst you are there. The one we frequented was at the Silver Moon apartments about 5 minutes walk away.
Our host, Leo, is charming and so thoughtful. He collected us from the airport and drove us the scenic route to the apartment, showing us lots of places of interest and telling us some of the history of the island. His mum brought us fresh eggs too!
If you want a traditional Greek village experience this is perfect. Greek dancing at The Little Prince or Zorba’s, great food everywhere. No fast food joints or clubs - go to Sidari for that! Nearly everyone we met seemed to have holidayed there before, and we would love to return too.
Many thanks to Leo and his lovely family.
I was a bit nervous about the apartment being next to a Greek dancing restaurant and thought it might be too noisy, but it wasn't a problem at all.
Fabulous Apartment, Lovely host and a great Location.
We stayed for two weeks in this wonderful apartment. It far exceeded our expectations. The apartment was extremely well equipped, everything you could possibly need. The location was perfect a few minutes walk to the beach and lots of restaurants and bars close by. Leo was a great host and made us feel very welcome. We hope to return soon.
We stayed at Ifigenia for three weeks in August 2017 and had such a lovely time there. Nothing was too much trouble for Leo and his family.
Leo picked us up from the airport and was so friendly and welcoming. We arrived at the villa and he showed us everything then left us with lots of fresh fruit, eggs, coffee pods etc.
The villa is amazing - so bright and clean - everything looks new. Three air-conditioning units, which kept us all cool. The balcony is huge - part of it is in the shade - with two sunbeds, a sofa and table and chairs - but part of it has the sun all day. You can sit at night and watch everybody going by whilst enjoying the Greek music playing at The Little Prince. But it is also very private - people did not even know we were there!
Although the villa is fantastic with everything you could possibly need, the way in which Leo and his family looked after us really made our holiday. The villa was cleaned regularly and Leo prepared a barbecue for us one night - fresh fish, meat and salad with local wine. He also organised many transfers - all included in the price - as family members came and went.
We had a wonderful holiday and will definitely go back to Ifigenia again. Thank you to Leo and his family for looking after us so well.
This was our first visit to Corfu and after much searching I found the Ifigenia in Agios Stefinos. We where travelling with our friends and their two sons so there where many things on the wish list! The Ifigenia looked like it might fit the requirements and after researching the area we booked with Leonidas, who was so very helpful and very quick to answer any of our queries. We where not disappointed in any way, Leo arranged our transfers and and was on hand if we needed his help. The village setting was lovely and the apartment just as advertised, superb clean, well fitted and equipped with a beautiful large balcony for those lazy moments! The stunning beach is just as stated a five minute stroll down the lane passing more restaurants and shops of interest . The 2kilm. beach is sandy and safe especially for families , there are a choice of tavernas and sun beds, boats for hire, paragliding, doughnut rides, jet ski and stunning walks. The local people are so friendly and welcoming and the food delicious. There are many Swimming pools around the village that are open to the public , the choice is yours, along with cafes,restaurants and shops. The local buses run regularly and we took a trip into nearby Sidari which is a busy seaside town.
We all had a wonderful time in Stefanos and are already arranging our trip back to the Ifigenia.
We would just like to extend our thanks to Leo and his lovely mum .
Leo's apartment really does have it all; firstly the apartment itself is stunning, elegantly decorated (looks even better than the photos) with everything you could ever need inside. We stayed for a week however we could have easily lived there! Leo has thought of everything, from fabulous bathrooms and interior, to smaller details like a dishwasher, smart TV, coffee machine even a USB phone charger. The huge terrace is it's biggest asset, which catches the sun all day but also always has some shaded parts, it is equipped with sun loungers, and table and chairs (great for breakfast, lunch and of course wine! )
Secondly the location is perfect, very close to the beach (a genuine 5 minute walk) and in the middle of the town area, various tavernas, bars and shops, however due to being a second story apartment you can enjoy all this whilst still having your own privacy with the terrace not being overlooked.
I cannot recommend this place enough! Leo and his family are so friendly and helpful, he cannot do enough for you and is also on the end of the phone if you need him. Leo drove us to and from the airport, he has alot of interesting stories about Corfu and it's history which he tells in a very enjoyable way. We cannot wait to return
This beautiful apartment provided everything we could have detailed on our 'wish list'... thoughtfully decorated and spacious rooms, air conditioning, and a well equipped kitchen. The beautiful and completely private terrace provides sunshine and shade throughout the day and so is ideal for topping up the tan, dining al fresco or cooling off in the shade with a good book! Location couldn't be better, with the lovely beach of Agios Stefanos an easy 5 minute stroll from your door. We dined at most of the tavernas available in the town (within minutes walk from the apartment)- and whilst we had our favourites, all provided quality home cooked food, always delivered with a friendly smile. The warm, friendly and thoughtful service provided by Leo and his family is outstanding! I look forward to returning to this lovely holiday rental.
