History


Avlaki (Greek: Αυλάκι) beach
Avlaki Beach is located about 36 kilometres to the north-east of Corfu town, between the villages of Agios Stephanos and Kassiopi. Avlaki beach is a quiet natural setting surrounded by olive groves, close to the Eremites natural reserve and not particularly known among tourists. It is also awarded with the Blue Flag, a certificate given by the European Union to recognize the clean beaches in Europe.

Agios Stefanos (Greek: Άγιος Στέφανος) village 
Agios Stefanos is a naturally beautiful gulf with almost a circular shape.
The traditional village of St. Stefano is built now there and belongs to the old community of Sinies.
St. Stefano it is a natural fishing shelter and also can accommodate boats and sail boats.
Since it is just two kilometres from the opposite coast of Northern Epirus (modern south Albania), the surrounding hills between Avlaki  and St. Stefano are of strategic importance.

Many of the houses were stone-built until the 1960s, the decade that mains electricity first became available. Vehicles were introduced on the island in the 1970s, television arrived in the 1980s and the internet not until the 2000's.
