    Any traveller worth their salt will readily recommend the Ionian island of Corfu to those looking to get away from the humdrum of city living. It is a place ringed with a rich sense of history which lives and breathes Greek mythology. Apparently, it was given as a gift given by Poseidon, god of the sea to his lover, hence its other name, Kerkyra. And wandering along its marvellous beaches onto which turquoise waters lap ceaselessly, one can see how much Poseidon loved the daughter of Asopos. Holiday homes in Agios Gordios, an exquisitely located village, are a great base from which to explore the natural and cultural wonders of Corfu. HomeAway offers visitors an assortment of accommodation options in this locale to suit their needs. Holiday apartments in Agios Gordios which are suitable for couples or backpackers are available as are villas that can house large travelling groups.

    Things to do

    -Historical buildings: As evidence of Corfu’s military past which saw it vanquished and ruled by the British and the Venetians, there are fortresses that were constructed centuries ago to keep invaders at bay. Visitors will particularly want to visit the Achilleion, a palace constructed under the auspices of Austrian Empress Sissi. This impressive structure was constructed in 1890, themed, as its name suggests, around the Greek hero Achilles. Its gardens are beautifully designed and there is a captivating statue of Achilles in the midst of the greenery.

    -Other monuments: A visit to the village of Kynopiastes, a mere 10km from Corfu, is recommended for those who want to see more of the past glory of this locale. It is dotted with ancient mansions, some of which date back to the 17th century. There are also centuries-old churches including one dedicated to the Virgin Mary whose interior is festooned with 18th century frescoes.

    -Beaches: Tourists booked for holiday homes in Agios Gordios will be glad to know they will have some of Greece’s finest beaches within easy reach. The nearby village of Kassiopi is fringed by stunning beaches that lead to crystal clear waters. The trip down to the beach is rewarding in itself as one will be surrounded by breathtaking scenery. Apart from lazing in the ample sands, visitors can hire boats for trips to the neighbouring islands. Along the way they’ll discover grottos and other interesting features.

    -Outdoor activity: Those who fancy a hike can take advantage of the more rugged parts of Corfu. A 222km-long trail that winds around the entire island will be available to them. They can set their sights on Mt. Pantokrator which has the island’s highest point. Water sport enthusiasts can enquire after sailing and yachting facilities. They should have no problem chartering a yacht or boat to take advantage of the steady winds that are experienced throughout summer.

    -Food and drink: Most holidaymakers who spend time in holiday homes in Agios Gordios hardly ever get to cooking as there are many places in Corfu where they can tuck into expertly prepared meals. At Captains, for instance, they will be served any Greek speciality they desire. They can also ask for spaghetti and other kinds of dishes here. A meal at Agni Bay, right on the beach is an unforgettable experience.
