Louvre Hotel

The Louvre Hotel is a countryside gem. It’s surrounded by greenery, so you’ll feel like you’re in your own private oasis. The curvy pool is bordered by sunbeds and umbrellas, and for daytime snacks, there’s an al fresco bar.

The breakfast at the restaurant gets great reviews from guests. It’s mainly continental, but there are some cooked options, too. Once a week, the hotel also hosts a Greek barbecue by the pool.

After your evening meal, the bar serves a long list of drinks. There’s also a great range of bars surrounding the hotel, with some staying open until 4am.

Overview of Gouvia

Gouvia has kept a link to its naval heritage thanks to a stylish harbour that’s full of traditional Greek restaurants. As a result, it has gained a reputation as a chic place for a holiday to Corfu and it’s particularly popular with couples who love dining by candlelight.

The beaches in Gouvia are picturesque and appeal to sun worshippers and water-sports enthusiasts alike. Plus, you’re well connected to other resorts, so you can easily access Corfu Town when you leave the Louvre Hotel.

Things to do in Gouvia

The location of the Louvre Hotel is a great hit with guests who get a best-of-both-worlds deal. Gouvia’s bar scene is practically on the doorstep, while the beach just a short stroll away.

When you’re looking for a laid-back evening meal, head to the stylish marina where wine and meze are both regularly available. It’s a romantic place and you can enjoy a beautiful meal while the boats bob on the water. Just behind the marina, the grand arches of the old Venetian port are still standing.

With an upmarket marina, traditional restaurants and great links to Corfu Town, Gouvia is a great spot for a holiday to Corfu.

Resort Summary

Gouvia is blessed with a handful of sandy shores, meaning you get more beach for your buck than in many other Corfiot resorts. The Ionian Sea is often very calm during the summer months as these beaches are sheltered, making them ideal for little ones who want to splash around in the shallows.

The largest stretch of beach at Gouvia is a peaceful shingle shoreline, where you can take an evening stroll, lay on your towel and tan or have lunch at a seafront taverna. There is an area right in the centre, between two jetties, where you can swim, bob around on an inflatable or try out some of the water sports, such as banana boats and water-skiing.
