Holidays to Gouvia take you to an upmarket marina and traditional restaurants, and put you in easy distance of the capital, Corfu Town.
Cruise & Stay holidays to Gouvia are just the ticket for solo travellers, couples, families and friends looking for a resort town that offers a little bit of everything. Enjoy sun, sea, sand, shopping and leisure activities to suit everyone.
A resort for all the family
Gouvia sits on Corfu’s sheltered eastern coast and is famous for its glitzy marina. This former fishing village, developed on the site of an ancient Venetian harbour, has steadily grown in popularity throughout the decades. It’s a fantastic spot for anyone who’s seeking a slice of peace and quiet, and its proximity to Corfu Town makes it easy to take a daytrip to the capital.
Down by the water
In this picturesque little town, it’s all about hanging by the water. Laze on the beach, wander through a pebbled cove or take to the marina, where the yachts come and go while you sit back and watch them with a cocktail in hand. Of course, if you want to throw yourself in at the deep end, the warm, clear sea is perfect for swimming, diving and watersports. Gouvia’s marina also makes it a great spot for boating trips and tours.
The island capital can be reached in 15 minutes by car, taxi or bus. In Corfu Town you’ll find a pretty old quarter, two spectacular Venetian fortresses that offer unparalleled views of the city and the sea, and the Liston, a cosmopolitan French parade of restaurants and cafés. Even closer to Gouvia lies the relaxed beach town of Dassia and, just across the bay, the lovely Ipapanti Church, located in nearby Komeno and visible from Gouvia’s main strip.
Savouring the Greek cuisine
No cruise holiday to Corfu would be complete without indulging in some classic dishes. Both Gouvia and neighbouring Kontokali are home to a number of traditional tavernas, where you can sample the local beef pastitsada, try the fresh seafood and wash it all down with a glass of ouzo. In nearby Corfu Town, the many centuries of Venetian influence mean you’ll find plenty of eateries serving up pizza, pasta and fine wine.
