Gouvia : Holiday Accommodation
Spread around a beautiful bay north of Corfu Town, Gouvia bubbles with life, beaches, watersports and tavernas, making it perfect for a well-rounded, varied holiday.
Once a Venetian naval base, this friendly town is now frequented by luxury yachts, giving it a sophisticated feel reflected in the cosmopolitan restaurants around its marina. There's a choice of sand-and-shingle beaches and tiny coves all with calm waters and enticing watersports, and no shortage of tavernas and shops for souvenir-hunting either. For a change, walk into the pine-scented hills, catch a bus to Corfu Town or stroll to next-door Kotonkali to enjoy its quieter atmosphere. And later, there's a choice of nightlife - either head for nearby Danila, a recreation of a Greek village offering folklore shows, or stick around, enjoying Gouvia's eateries, popular sports bars and party-mad clubs.
