This large town on the western coast of Corfu is in the middle of a large bay north-west of Corfu town overlooking the mainland.

"Gouvia is a village and resort situated around Gouvino Bay in Corfu, Greece. It is situated around 8km (5 miles) North of Corfu town.

Gouvias position in a natural harbour made it an ideal location for a shipyard, this was exploited during the Venetian occupation, when they built their arsenal in the village. The remains of it today are notable in the area.

The village has a Greek Orthodox church, names All Saints'. There are many bars, restaurants and taverns along the main street serving mostly tourists from Northern Europe. There are a number of large hotels and self-catering apartments in the village." Wikipedia
