Gouves is a small picturesque village located 18 km east of Heraklion, next to Gournes and in an altitude of 300 m next to the small mountain of Ederi.

Gouves is a large area, which covers several smaller villages, including the popular resort area of Kato Gouves and the traditional village of Pano Gouves, which is built into the side of small Mt. Ederi, only a little more than 300 m high, with spectacular views.

The name Gouves is derived from "gouva," which means a hollow in the earth. The name Gouves is usually applied to the seaside resort of Kato Gouves.

Gouves is neither a village nor a town. It is an inhabited area which owes its development to tourism. There is a main road running from the old Heraklion - Hersonissos National Road down to the beach road. On either side of the road, hotels and apartments extend to a great distance among the fields. There are also a few hotels and apartments above the old National Road. In other words, this is a sparsely-populated area which largely retains its earlier farming character.

Kato Gouves, just a couple km north of the village, with its long sandy beach, is the summer resort. There is a variety of accommodation, from large hotels to boarding houses and self-catering apartments, and there are many restaurants, bars, nightclubs, and shops.

There are also remains of an ancient Minoan ceramics workshop which is worth seeing, as well as the Christian remains, like the Church of Zoodochos Pigi, patron of the village, the Eileithyia caves.

Within a short distance are picturesque villages and sights, such as the monastery of Saint John "Theologos", the Skotino cave and Eileithyia cave. The most important archeological sites of the area are the Minoan villas of Kokkini Hani and Amnisos.

The access from Heraklion to Gouves is very easy due to regular and frequent bus itineraries, taxies or rented cars and motorcycles.
