Don’t be deceived by the apparent simplicity of the Yiannis Village complex, as that is part of the charm. Set back form the resort centre in a tranquil setting, the grounds comprise of pretty apartments, a large unfussy pool and hosts who are happy to go the extra mile.
The apartments are found in beautiful gardens and there is an option to select large spaces, so even big family groups can be easily catered for. Kitchenettes let you take control of mealtimes, though there is an excellent restaurant and poolside bar to try and the town centre is just 1.5km away, so you’re never too far from fantastic food.

Things to do in Sidari
Venture out from the peace and quiet of the Yiannis Village and you’ll find a host of friendly faces in Sidari. You’ll want to head to the beach, as it is a Blue Flag winner and is close enough to other stretches of sand in case you want some variety. Wherever you lay your towel, the swimming will be excellent, as will the opportunities for diving, snorkelling and trying new water sports.
If you’re holidaying with kids, there’s a good waterpark nearby, but the street market is also a lot of fun, with plenty of locally made items that make for perfect souvenirs. If you hire a bike, you could easily get to a few different attractions, all in one day, but be aware that Corfu can be a little on the hilly side, though a hard ride will work up an appetite for some traditional Greek fare, of which there is a lot. Follow the sounds of bouzouki music and you’ll discover a cuisine that sets your taste buds alight.
Sidari is a great way to experience the real Corfu. Peaceful when you stay up in the hills, but sociable, friendly and beach-focused when you venture into town, it is a perfect example of why so many people can’t resist Corfu.
