Villa Gouvia sleeps eight, across two double and two twin bedrooms. Situated in Gouvia just 15 minutes drive from Corfu Airport. The villa has a large pool and enjoys seaviews from the terrace.

Starting outside, you’ll be hard pushed to find such a great outdoor area – the villa has a great garden, mainly laid to lawn, and a large terrace. The generous terrace is where you’ll find the swimming pool, with its super views out across the sea to the hills beyond. There are plenty of sunbed and umbrellas here, it’s a really lovely spot for those wanting to relax with a good book, or simply switch off completely and gaze out at the stunning surroundings.  There’s also a barbecue, complete with a fully equipped outdoor kitchen (refrigerator, and all utensils) – absolutely perfect for those of you wanting to buy the local ingredients and try out some dishes from the area.

Heading in at ground floor level, there is a largely open plan layout. The décor is chic and uncluttered but has comfortable touches, like Persian rugs and comfortable sofas. The spacious hall opens out to a lovely split-level living room - the lower level is the sitting area (with sofas, a piano, television, DVD, sound system and a marble fire place), while the upper level has a convenient office area if you do need to catch up on the outside world while you’re away. There’s a small sofa here too, so if work isn’t calling, you can at least cosy up with a good book and escape the main heat of the day.

From the hall, you’ll find the dining room – a fine room and, with room to comfortably seat ten, it’s a great entertaining space. Carry on through to the kitchen from here – which has its own smaller seating area and television.  The kitchen itself is well-equipped, as you would expect, with all the mod cons – refrigerator, freezer, oven, microwave, coffee machine, washing machine and tumble dryer.  There’s another table and chairs here too, the perfect spot for breakfast.

Each of the roomy bedrooms has French doors leading on to their own private balconies, complete with table and chairs; a super addition, meaning you can enjoy a peaceful morning coffee taking in the beautiful view, before the rest of the villa wakes up. One of the en-suite double bedrooms is on the ground floor, with the rest of the bedrooms up on the first floor. The large master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom, balcony and even its own dressing room. The two twin rooms aren’t hard done by though as they too have their own balconies, and share a large bathroom.

Oliver Approved

What you should know…

  • One of the double bedrooms is on the ground floor – something to keep in mind if you’re entertaining outside
  • You’ll definitely need a car to fully explore the island

Location

About the surrounding area of Villa Gouvia

Loading map

Villa Gouvia is set high up in a beautiful hillside location, just outside Gouvia on the eastern coast of Corfu. Gouvia itself is fairly small – it has a large marina, and most of the shops, bars and restaurants are set along one main street leading down to it. Gouvia is about an 8km drive from the larger Corfu town itself, where you’ll find all manner of entertainment; but smaller, slower paced Dassia is about 4km away – not far to go for a shingly Blue Flag beach, a range of water sports, beach side tavernas and a gentler pace of life.

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.

How to reach Corfu island

There are two ways to get to Corfu island: either by flight or by ferry.

By plane: During April to October, several direct flights arrive to "Ioannis Kapodistrias" Airport from Europe as Corfu is one of the most popular travel destinations in Greece. During these months, the airport also receives many domestic flights every day from Athens and Thessaloniki. 

By ferry: Travelling by ferry is the most popular way of transport in Greece. Ferries to Corfu depart from Patra and Igoumenitsa. If you are travelling from Europe, Corfu is easily accessible by ferry from Venice, Bari, Brindisi or Ancona too.
