Nestled behind a towering and lush emerald mountain, tucked away on the enchanting western coast of Corfu, lies Agios Gordios, an unassuming yet remarkable seaside retreat.

The captivating fusion of the majestic mountain and the verdant embrace of nature categorizes the coastal settlement of Agios Gordios as one of the most beloved summer destinations for those seeking alternative vacations brimming with seaside allure and carefree indulgence.

This picturesque coastal village takes its name from Agios Gordios of Caesarea, in honor of whom a church was built near the settlement’s beach, as depicted in historical texts dating back to 1714. The exact date of the church’s construction remains unknown.

Nestled in the heart of this enchanting location, the famous church beckons visitors with its proximity to the sunny beach, which is just a few steps away.

Agios Gordios is renowned for its extensive 1km-long coastline, known for its golden sands and majestic rock formations. One such marvel is the legendary rock ‘Ortholithi’ that juts proudly from the crystal-clear waters, a prominent feature captured in the pages of a novel by the acclaimed Greek writer Iakovos Polylas. On the north side, you will find the interesting rock “Aerostato”, a former vantage point for pirates who watched the surrounding seas vigilantly. These natural wonders are testimony to the rich history and charm of the area.

Agios Gordios sits serenely at the base of these awe-inspiring old hills, offering an authentic seaside village experience reminiscent of the idyllic Greek islands.
