Hi I am thinking of booking trip to Agios Stefanos in North East Corfu for next summer with DD who will then be nearly 3. My uncle and aunt go every year (Covid permitting) and we have joined them a few times in the past pre-DD. We love the area, it's peaceful but I'm unsure about it with DD. There isn't a huge amount to do in Agios Stefanos itself, we will have a hire car and would plan to get a villa with a pool. Just wondering if anyone else has done Corfu with a child that age and how they got on? Thanks.

Sounds a bit boring TBH and I'd be stressing about them falling in the pool. I think I'd rather go for somewhere nearer a resort/Town so you could head out in the evening for dinner/drinks without driving. I've not been to Corfu, but I love Crete. The people are so friendly & accommodating and love children. Check the temperature - June & Sept are more bearable.

I'm thinking the same about pool to be honest but the village where we are staying has a lovely beach anyway. And tavernas in walking distance.

Sounds perfect. Stick the baby in the buggy at night and walk to the taverna!

As long as there is air conditioning and a pool/beach/sand. DS used to love it at that age. He would play with his toys, splash in the pool, walk on the beach, go in the sea and fall asleep loads later than normal when we went out - meaning we had a lie in.
Do it!

I would be too worried about sun burn/heat stroke with a small child during summer in Corfu. It'll be so ridiculously hot. Would probably go early or later in the season.
