When driving down to St Stephano from the wooded hills behind, you glimpse the classic Greek fishing village far below, tucked in a pretty little bay that faces out towards the distant mountains of Albania.
St Stephano has its own small beach at one end of the bay, whilst the fishing boats are all moored at the other end. You will find the odd parasol and sun bed here and there, and you can hire a boat for exploration further afield, but otherwise this is a place in which to hang loose, not rush around. On the slopes down to the the village you will notive numerous beehives that, with the help of copious wild flowers (and of course bees) produce the local honey.
One of the best features of St Stephano are its tavernas, renowned for their fresh fish and grilled meats. You can watch the yachts drop anchor in the bay and see the fishing boats going about their daily routines. The tavernas also have superb views over the foothills of Mount Pantocrator and to the mountains of Albania beyond.
Apart from dining, there’s blissfully little to do in the village itself. You can stroll around the bay, chat to the fishermen, have a swim off the tiny beach, or buy provisions in the village shop. If you’re staying in one of our villas near St Stephano and you want to explore further afield, you can head to nearby fishing villages and beaches, such as Avlaki (about 2km away), or the larger, livelier resort town of Kassiopi (about 4km away) along the north coast, where there are shops, bars, restaurant and clubs. Perfect for teenagers at night.
