Omirico Hotel & Apartments are located in Gouvia, a small picturesque tourist resort on the East Coast of Corfu and one of the most popular destinations. Gouvia village is a unique holiday destination ideal for couples and families visiting the island of Corfu, it provides an up to date and secure place for vacation. There are shops, discos and lively bars in the centre, plus plenty of traditional Greek Tavernas, which are mainly along the main road.
Gouvia actually has several beaches, most of which come with pebbles. The main stretch is sheltered in a half-moon shingle bay, which shelves gently into the calm Ionian Sea. Beach facilities include sunbeds and sun umbrellas, showers and toilets.
Just 10 minutes’ walk from the Hotel, you will find Corfu’s biggest yachting marina. The waterside cafés and restaurants make great spots to soak up the atmosphere. And just behind the marina you’ll find the grand arches of the old Venetian arsenal still standing.
The Venetian arsenal at Gouvia is a shipyard built by the Venetians during their rule of Corfu on the west side of what used to be called Govino Bay, the current location of the modern village of Gouvia. The remains of the old arsenal still exist at the Bay of Gouvia, and are located behind the modern marina of the port of Gouvia and are separated from it by an iron fence.
