Having stayed for the fifth time in Corfou San Stefanos, we finally followed Manthos' recommendation to stay in Fedra Mare which is run by his son Dimitris together with lovely Charitini, these two people being the best hosts by far. We enjoyed their unique hospitality with Greek charme and generosity. Fedra Mare offers you everything you expect without being snobby.
We arrived by 9 p.m. and were shown the room which turned out to be a two storey appartment with a nice view to the sea. Then we were offered a cold refreshing drink and felt at home immediately. During the whole stay we were looked after :-)
The rooms are spacious and offer all you need for a perfect stay. Restaurants and bars are all in walking distance ( although we hired a car to explore some places we hadn't been to before like the south and some remote villages which had been recommended to us by Dimitris). The breakfast was served directly at the pool and we enjoyed this very much because the sun was there to give us company. Charitini did everything to make your stay even better.
The place is in very good condition also in respect to cleanliness, the room was cleaned every day. Towels were changed very often. Nothing to complain about.
Fedra Mare offers two kinds of appartments:
Either a small studio or a large spacious appartment, according to individual needs. Everything is decorated with taste and the size of the pool is perfect to have a refreshing swim at any time of the day.
San Stefanos ( on the north west - not to be mixed up with the other San Stefanos on the north east side of Corfu) offers you good tavernas, bars, supermarkets etc.
To finish our thoughts of the day : We highly recommend to have a meal at Manthos' taverna, it is just some feet away and his kitchen is made with real corfiot recipes like he was taught by his mother. Thank you Manthos and your crew . We ate there 4 nights out of seven !!!
After one week it was difficult to leave, we would have loved to stay longer. But one thing is for sure: WE'LL BE BACK
