Property for sale in Gouvia
Choosing where to buy property in Corfu can be a bit of a conundrum.
For instance, if you’re investing in a hotel, is it better to buy somewhere busy like Kavos or opt for an exclusive establishment in a more sedate spot like Kalami?
And if you’re buying a permanent or holiday home, is it better to opt for the north or south coast and a beachside apartment or villa nestled in the lush hills?
If you’re prioritising convenience and connectivity to major transport links, as well as stunning scenery, a Corfu Town and Suburbs property could prove the perfect pick and one of the greatest attractions here is Gouvia.
Nestled on the east coast just a nudge northward from Corfu Town and the airport, Gouvia is a fabulous former fishing village which has embraced tourism but retained its rustic charm. If you’re yearning for somewhere chic, charming and reasonably lively to spend quality time with friends and family, and you appreciate the yacht set lifestyle, you’ll feel completely comfortable here.
Things to do in Gouvia
Constructed on the site of a Venetian harbour of yore, Gouvia is now Corfu’s main marina, so if you’re a seafarer with your own yacht, you’ll be in heaven here – but even if you simply love looking at elegant boats, this is a wonderful place to walk around and absorb the ambience.
Furthermore, there are several sand, shingle and pebble beaches here and the sea is safe for kids of all ages to swim in, while paragliding and diving are on offer if you’re feeling more adventurous and, if you’re excited by equine pursuits, hiring a horse and riding into the rolling hills and olive groves is thoroughly recommended.
There are fabulous choices for foodies in Gouvia too, with high quality restaurants serving up legendary local dishes and sumptuous international cuisine inspired by Mexico, Italy and Thailand.
Finally, the crystalline waters of Komeno Bay are a joy to behold and as you sunbathe or splash around you can gaze over to Komeno peninsula where the well-to-do live in luxurious villas, and by shifting your sunbed slightly you’ll enjoy a panoramic view of the Ionian Sea and mainland Greece.
