Villa Gouvia is beautifully furnished and laid out to make the most of the mature gardens and lovely views over the bay below. Located within easy access of the old Venetian capital of Corfu Town and the buzzing Gouvia Marina, it is everything that Corfiot living is about.
The spacious house, which is laid out over 3 floors, is surrounded by huge terraces with pergolas and shady areas; secret corners, including a curtained daybed to disappear to with a cool drink from the drinks cabinet, are helpfully situated on the terrace. One is spoilt for choice: Where to have breakfast – on the terrace with views to the sea? Lunch in the shade of the trees by the pool and then dinner by candlelight cooled by the overhead fan on the living room terrace? The 3 full time staff are happy to make each meal a different experience, whether it’s a barbecue or a formal dinner.
