A Greek seaside charmer

Looking for a nature-filled Grecian escape? Gouvia holidays offer the chance to enjoy the great outdoors, with a sprinkle of culture for good measure, too. An old-school fishing village turned attractive resort, Gouvia sits 8 kilometres outside Corfu Town. Built on the site of an 18th-century Venetian harbour, it has lively nightlife yet retains masses of local Corfiot charm. Along its pretty beaches, which range from sandy to shingly, you’ll find dinky coves and clear blue waters.

Some beaches are secluded and romantic (and perfect for couples), while others are lined with bars and shops. At the beautiful marina, there are shops and restaurants – everything from traditional Greek tavernas to intimate venues serving international cuisine. Spend days enjoying water sports or exploring rustic villages in the hills just outside Gouvia. No matter what you do, whether you’re an adventurous family or a fun-loving couple, you’ll find the best of Corfu on holidays to Gouvia.
