Gouvia holidays transport you to the island of Corfu that lies off the north west coast of Greece, very close to Albania. Historically, it was once a Ventian naval base and ship yard. The ruins, walls and arches but no roofs, are behind the modern marina which is now filled with yachts of all sizes. Gouvia main beach is shingle but there are several other sand and shingle beaches and small coves close by. The beach slopes gently into warm, clear water, ideal for paddling and those learning to swim. A variety of water sports are available from the beach which include fun rides on banana boats and sofas, to jet skiing, water skiing and paragliding. Cheap Gouvia holidays are popular with families and couples looking for a pleasant place to relax in the sunshine and forget the pressures of life back home. It is a good choice for those who wish to combine lazy days by the sea with visits to the beautiful capital Corfu Town which is only six miles away.

Local wines are as pleasing to the palate as they are to the pocket. Nightlife can be as relaxed or as lively as you wish as there are venues to suit all moods. Gouvia is well endowed with shops but if you are a serious shopper, head for the delights of Corfu Town. Its old quarter is a maze of narrow streets bursting with shops of all descriptions.
