While it's common for some diehard Corfu fans to believe that the island given in to the commercial strain of tourism, others will understand that Corfu has far more to offer her visitors than just the standout resorts where holidaymakers are their primary concern. Luckily, there are an abundance of charming resorts that still retain the essence of traditional Greek life, and Aghios Gordios is a perfect example of that.
Situated on the western coast of the island, Aghios Gordios may be small but it's also perfectly formed. From the clear warm waters and sweeping beaches to the many friendly tavernas and restaurants gracing its shores, the resort still oozes rustic charm, with fishing and agriculture still being the mainstays of society here, evidence of which you can see all around you. It's normal for holidaymakers to mingle with the locals in Aghios Gordios, and it's just as normal for visitors to return home having made some new, Greek friends.
Set on the picturesque coastline of Corfu, Aghios Gordios holidays treat you to some superb panoramic views, enjoyed from various viewpoints including uncrowded beaches and coastal trails. Perfect for couples and families looking for a relaxing break, Aghios Gordios is all about the laidback atmosphere - from the labyrinth of streets that are home to some wonderful little stores selling handmade lace, to the 138miles of Corfu Trail that is at your fingertips. Take the opportunity to slow the pace of life down a little, and enjoy some well-earned rest.
Located 2km inland, in the foothills of the mountains, a trip to Kato Garouna will provide some incredible views of the surroundings, giving you a vantage where you can see for miles while also catching a glimpse of several paragliders swooping across the skies.
A perfect spot for anyone looking to book a fun day out with all the family, Aqualand has an abundance of great slides and chutes to keep the adrenaline pumping, while also providing plenty of opportunity to simply ie back and enjoy the sun, watching your youngsters have a whale of a time.
As a historic town, you can imagine the scope of things in store. From its bustling streets, home to great shops and museums, to the Venetian architecture that can be admired all around, Corfu Town is a real cultural treat - and with buses operating from Aghios Gordios hourly, there's nothing stopping you from venturing to the town to explore what it has on offer.
Paraglide from the Hills
If you're daring enough, you can enjoy some paragliding from the surrounding hills that overlook Aghios Gordios and absorb the phenomenal views as you plunge back down to earth with the help of a parachute and, if you're a newbie, a tandem paraglider strapped to your back.
Take a Boat Trip
It's understandable if you wish to just clamber aboard a boat to see the town from the sea and admire the landscapes, but, if you're a sea lover, why not take a boat trip a little further, such as to the glorious beach of Glyfada - arguably one of the best beaches in Greece.
Sample the Mouth-Watering Fare
There's a whole host of fantastic restaurants and tavernas in the area, where you can sample some of the beautifully prepared local dishes that can be found on the menu. Try something new on your Aghios Gordios holiday rather than choosing to stick to what you know. The Pumphouse comes highly recommended and is one of the oldest restaurants in the area.
A laidback, chilled out lifestyle is the order of the day with Aghios Gordios holidays and by taking the plunge and seeing for yourself, you will be treated to a warm and friendly atmosphere in a resort that is a real reflection of what traditional Corfu is all about.
