Luxury Kontokali Holidays

A seaside village balanced between Gouvia and Corfu Town


The pretty coastal village of Kontokali is just a 15-minute drive north of the island capital, Corfu Town.

While the handful of tavernas and shops have oodles of charm, it’s the Blue Flag beach that’s the beating heart of Kontokali. Shallow waters and soft sands make it a hit with families and scuba divers, while hotels stripe the sand and shingle with sunloungers. You’ll find boats for hire at the little marina – perfect for a day trip exploring off-road beaches and coves.

There are a couple of bars in Kontokali, but if you fancy something a bit livelier, it’s a 20-minute walk (or a five-minute taxi ride) to the neighbouring town of Gouvia.

Continue 10 minutes along the coast, and you’ll come across Kommeno, where a causeway joins whitewashed Ypapanti Church to the village. Walk to its (usually closed) gates for views back over the cypress-brushed bay.

Flight Information

Flight time from the UK to Corfu is around 3 hours.

Transfer Time

Transfer time from Corfu airport to Kontokali is approximately 15 minutes.

When to go

Like the rest of Greece, Corfu is a reliable year-round destination for sunshine, with the holiday season running loosely from March all the way to October. The mercury is at its peak in July and August, when temperatures push past 30°C and you can expect sunshine 12 hours a day. 

Visa Information

Currently visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Greece.


In Greece, a service charge will be included in the bill at restaurants and bars. Much like the UK, an additional tip is not required, although is appreciated for particularly good service. It is common to round off the amount when paying cash, particularly with wait staff and taxi drivers. 

Introduction to languages

The official language of Greece is Greek.  English is widely spoken, too, so getting by is easy.
