The Village Gouvia

The "Pension Ipiros" lies about 250m outside of the village Gouvia and about 400m away from the beach. The village itself is located in the heart of the island Corfu and is thus a perfect starting point for your daily adventures. Using the good infrastructure you can easily discover some of the most picturesque villages and beaches of the island. Especially the North and the North-West of Corfu are frequently visited by the green Bus line. But no matter what means of transport you prefer the most beautiful beaches and sights are just a few minutes away. We are more than happy to assist you in your daily trip scheduling.

But you don’t have to travel far to find lovely places. Gouvia itself is one of the prettiest villages on the island. It offers a variety of traditional Greek restaurants for those who love the typical Geek cuisine as well as nice and exciting bars for those who like to turn the night to day.

The Old Town

The Island of Corfu

Die Bucht von BarbatiCharming beaches, the beautiful fauna and flora and the cultural heritage are just some reasons why Corfu is always worth visiting.  Even the famous empress of Austria Sissi appreciated the green pearl of Greece as her holiday destination. Corfu’s unique diversity seduces our regular guests to return since decades in order to continuing exploring the marvellous island.
The different cultural influences and the rich vegetation are only some reasons why Corfu is such a distinguishable Island in Greece. The strong Italian (Venetian) and French influence had a remarkable impact on the landscape and architecture of the island. Everyone who is drifting through the narrow alleys of the old town will immediately notice the Venetian architecture. The famous Espianada square is the social center of the old town and owed to the French. Naturally the beauty of Corfu does not stem only from its culture but also from its magnificent beaches with their crystal clear water.
