Villa Arete holds a fantastic position above the village of Gouvia, which can be reached in less than 10 minutes' drive. The touristic village of Gouvia offers a variety of restaurants, bars and shops, as well as a pebble beach. In the most northern part, there is a bay with a watersports centre where you can try paddleboarding, water skiing and more.

Further up in the Corfian east coast there are other popular summer resorts, such as Dassia or Barbati Beach, where besides the clearwater beaches you will also find authentic tavernas and charming promenades. The journey to these coastal towns is a joy itself, as the road provides a lovely scenic ocean view. Another local landmark is the grand Achilleion house and gardens, originally built as a summer palace for Empress Elisabeth of Austria with perfectly landscaped gardens and even more impressive architecture.

Although it would be a pity to limit your stay around only one area of the island - Corfu has so much to offer! Corfu Town is a must-visit, having been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site, there is plenty to see and do. The Royal Palace - which has been reconverted to a museum- or its two fortresses will bring you back in time. Even if it's just a stroll around the old town and the Esplanade, the island's capital won't disappoint.

The Island/Getting There

One of the largest and greenest of the Ionian Islands, Corfu is far more than its trademark blue-hued seas and sandy coastline. With its UNESCO World Heritage status and unbeatable strolling opportunities, there is no better place to start exploring than the main town and its historic old quarter, where ancient churches, scattered ruins and a handful of museums mean Corfu’s layers of history can be found just about everywhere. And if you’re in need of a cosy abode, take a look at our flawless villas in Corfu.
