That’s a great price for a good value holiday if you’d ask me! You are going to stay in Sidari which is the most famous tourist resort at the North Coast of Corfu. From a small village town Sidari turned into a popular lively place with plenty clubs, bars and pubs. Furthermore the main beach has been awarded with the Blue Flag which means that you really have a great beach right under your feet. Sidari is really worth a visit and don’t miss to do a banana boat ride! Or if you rather prefer something different than check out the local offers for paragliding or scuba diving. The sea is great for such activities.
Thomson.co.uk is offering a holiday package of 14 nights for a really nice 2-star hotel with flights from Manchester for only £190 per person. Spend your holiday in the Yiannis Village (94% on TripAdvisor + Certificate of Excellence) and stay in the apartments that have well-equipped kitchenettes, so a great choice for self catering holidays. But there is also a restaurant and bar in the reception building if you’re not in the mood to cook for yourself :) The apartments are around 28 miles from the Corfu Airport and there is a local bus near by that runs to Corfu Town that is also 28 miles away.
FYI: The link to thomson.co.uk forwards you to the deal displaying the price of £221 without coach transfers, but if you click to the next page, there are automatically the coach transfers for £60 included for the same price. I removed the coach transfers and the World Care donation and that’s how you get the holiday for £190 per person. I recommend you not to book the holiday package with the coach transfers of the provider because they charge you £60 for the transfer and there is the possibility to take a bus every 4 hours for only £3! Even by taxi is a bit cheaper because the taxi costs approximately £25 one way.
