KANONI-MOUSE ISLAND & GOUVIA MARINA
KANONI & MOUSE ISLAND
World famous Kanoni is situated south of the Palaiopoli peninsula. It was named Kanoni (canons) after the battery of artillery established by the French in 1798. In the sea below Kanoni is the Monastery of Vlaherna built in the 17th century, linked to the mainland by a pier. Just across from the Vlaherna monastery, is the verdantly green Mouse Island (Pontikonisi). This stunning view is the trademark of Corfu.
THE GOUVIA MARINA
Gouvia Marina, the first privately owned marina in Greece, is situated about 3 km from the hotel. In the 17th century Venetian seamen selected the area of Gouvia as an ideal location for creating a naval station and shipyards. Today sailing yachts and motor boats from all over the world arrive at Gouvia Marina, enjoying the beauties of the sea and the environment, the cool breeze and the beautiful island of Corfu. Today, Gouvia not only features the remains of the Venetian shipyards, which are a point of historical interest, but is also a lively resort with various dining and nightlife alternatives, popular with locals but also visitors of all nationalities.
