Gouvia Yacht Charter

You might want to consider the town of Gouvia if you want something different yet distinctively Greek on your upcoming Greece yacht charter holiday in the Mediterranean. Hailed by seasoned sailors and tourists who frequent the region as the undiscovered Mediterranean gem, Gouvia provides an experience that is simply a cut above the rest of the other top holiday destinations in Greece and all of the Mediterranean.

The town of Gouvia is what you can consider a typical Greek village which is located some 8 km from the town of Corfu on the Island bearing the same name. Gouvia is one of those attractions in Greece that is not usually visited by mainstream tourists and holidaymakers in the Eastern Mediterranean.

Sights and Places Worth Checking

This rustic village on the Island of Corfu lies along the bay area and is adequately shielded from the open sea. The town’s ideal location and natural conditions were the reasons why it was used as an important naval hub by the Venetians in the past before it became an important tourist destination that it is at the present time. The town of Corfu is an attractive sailing possibility for yacht charter crowds because of its idyllic beachfront and ideal separation from the busy sea route going to the other tourist places in the region, which normally draw heavy traffic of sailors and holidaymakers especially during the summer months.

Gouvia Attractions and Sailing Possibilities

Tourists and sailors visiting the town of Gouvia would also include in their day activities attractions and landmarks with historical significance in the Town of Corfu. This idyllic town is also popular for its lush vegetation which is dominated by cypress trees and olive groves. Within the heart of town, there are several local markets that carry local handcrafts and products like jewelry, clothing and leather goods.

The nightlife at Gouvia is something that you should not miss. Your yacht charter holiday is not complete if you don’t sample the action and join the festive crowd in Gouvia after dark. Gouvia is known for its jovial crowd that gathers along the town’s waterfront. On the other hand, the town centre features open-air night spots where sailors and holidaymakers also congregate.

The nightlife in the town of Corfu is something that is not quite like any other experience in other yacht charter destinations in the region. The nightlife in Gouvia is livelier, and it takes on a festive mood as soon as the night falls down on Gouvia. The distinction that sets it apart from the other night entertainment options in other yacht charter destinations is the fact that the locals adapt and cater to the nightlife preferences of the tourist and sailors that troop to Gouvia.

Day Activities at Gouvia

Your holiday in Gouvia will not have its Greek flavour if you don’t visit the mini-markets that feature an assortment of clothing boutiques, outlets that sell leather articles and jewelry shops. These markets also host several souvenir shops where you can find items that you can bring home. This shopping experience in Gouvia practically allows you to bring home important pieces of Greece.
