Family Holiday in Corfu

Pippa Wilson on 04 July 2022
I had long heard about Corfu from friends that had visited and some that lived there for a while so I had heard it was very beautiful. This was a family holiday with my 3 adult children and so we were quite budget conscious as they were funding their own trips. We chose Sidari on the north coast as it seemed to have enough in the way of bars and restaurants for us. They didn’t want to go all inclusive as they love to eat out in restaurants and to choose from the menu so we chose a self catered apartment in Sunny Corfu Apartments – where there was a pool and restaurant on site. It was located in a perfect place – away from the centre of Sidari so there was no night time noise yet just a 5 minute walk to the centre. The pool was perfect and the staff there so friendly and helpful.

We hired a car for a couple of days from a local car rental place and explored the north of the Island visiting Paleokastritsa, St Georges bay and Kassiopi.

We didn’t take part in any of the excursions on offer but spoke to plenty of people who did who said they were excellent and worth every penny. It was my daughters 18th birthday while we were there and we celebrated with a BBQ at the hotel with all the other guests, and then the local sports bar got a cake for her, and we had an amazing meal overlooking the sea with a fabulous sunset at the 7th Heaven restaurant.

Sidari is a small village and in the summer the majority of people there are British so it is very geared around tourists however if you are looking for great food and some nightlife with lovely beaches and scenery then this is a perfect for a family summer holiday. My kids actually used that word – perfect – and said they wouldn’t have changed a thing.
