Upper (Ano) and Lower (Kato) Pavliana Corfu: where nature paints!
The nature of Corfu is superb. Probably when the Almighty was creating the world and saw Corfu, He grabbed the artistic inspiration and began to paint beautiful landscapes and villages. Thus all the villages of Corfu are lovely touches in a vast green background, blending with the calm blue of the Ionian Sea.
Such a touch of the great painter, are both villages of Corfu, Ano and Kato Pavliana.
The villages are located on the slopes of the mountain Pavliana. They are characterized by old stone houses and narrow neighborhoods. These villages are bordering with Pentati village, Saint Matthew and Garouna. The villages are also close to some beaches such as the Paramonas, Agios Gordios and Saint Nicholas.
In the old days, houses in Pavliana were built mainly of stone and other durable materials to withstand earthquakes. The roof tops were constructing by Byzantine tiles. They had cellars (storage) but the furniture in the houses was minimal. Even today, they use the famous ognistres (oven tool), limekiln on and bougiates (manufacture of charcoal).
Tradition flows through dance and music on the island of Corfu and the Pavliana residents expressed themselves through this tradition. Many of them have composed songs, while during festivals held in the village, people are dancing with handmade costumes of Corfu. In the village there are two Cultural Associations. The Environmental Association and the Association of Forest Protection; members are responsible for the protection of the natural wealth of the village. Founded in 2005-2006 and belongs to the chapel of Prophet Elias and crucifixes. The Cultural Association’s main objective is also the protection of the local cultural wealth, and it is expressed through the organization of theatrical performances in the village.
The small village of Agios Gordios is surrounded by green olive-clad mountains that lead down to a long golden sandy beach with crystal clear water. At the village you can find everything you might need. There are many hotels, apartments, studios, restaurants, bars, shops, supermarkets and all the kind of services.There is a full range of restaurants offering a variety of tastes including Traditional Greek, Mediterranean, international and Mexican; a few of these are by the sea. The quality and the service of Agios gordios restaurants are at high levels. Prices are very good and can satisfy all budgets. The beach of Agios Gordios is a beautiful long sandy beach (about 1.5 km long) which has also private areas for nudists and to those who enjoy privacy. On the busy part of the beach (about 600 meters) you can either opt for relaxation (there are beds and umbrellas for hire) or get a bit more involved. There are boats, canoes and pedallos for hire that offer the opportunity for some explorations. And last but not least, (for the really active) there is a diving centre and water sports.Within 3 Km from Agios Gordios, there are 3 traditional Greek villages (Kato Garouna, Pentati & Sinarades) where you can go by foot through picturesque paths and enjoy the beauty of the nature.
Paramonas beach is located at the south west corner of the Mesis region. From the village of Agios Mattheos, a road leads down to Paramonas, an excellent sandy beach with some small islets off-shore and two or three taverns beside the waves. To the south are the clean and peaceful little beaches of Prasoudi, Kavouli, and Skidi, worth keeping in mind if you seek solitude during the peak season. Because of Paramonas' healthy and relaxing environment, it has been used in various film commercial production purposes. Some of the biggest and most influential stars have set foot in this alluring beach. A lot of them often return to this place not to work but for recreational and vacation purposes. Because of this, Paramonas has become one of the most sought-after vacation places in Greece.
