Paxi-Paxos, Greece, awaits.

The islands of Paxi-Paxos are an island chain in the Ionian Sea, comprised of Paxos, Antipaxos, Nisaki, and Katsonisi. They are home to some of the most valuable holiday real estate in Greece, due to both British and Italian investors retiring to the islands. The islands enjoy a rich history of olive oil pressing and soap making. Though these industries have mostly been replaced by tourism, the olive groves remain, stretching over much of the islands. Paxi-Paxos is part of the Cultural Village of Europe, a trans-national organization that promotes cultural endeavours within the European Union. The Cultural Village of Europe hosts an annual music festival on Paxi-Paxos.

For larger groups, HomeAway offers a wide variety of villas in Paxi-Paxos. These villas are equipped with various different amenities including full kitchens and balconies with a view of the sea. For couples and smaller groups, the best option is a Paxi-Paxos apartment. HomeAway offers a wide range of apartments, from small cosy spaces to spacious multi-room flats for several people.

Those seeking to explore other nearby islands should browse HomeAway's selection of holiday homes on Corfu as well as the selection of holiday homes on Kefallonia.

Things to do

Gaios:

Gaios, the port city on the island of Paxi, is considered the capital city of the Paxi island group. This port city is actually a natural fjord, as another islet, Pontikonisi, sits directly in the bay. Gaios is situated on the east coast of Paxi and just south of the main ferry terminal for the Paxi islands.

Water Planet Dive Center Gaios:

The Water Planet Dive Center offers diving courses for both beginners and advanced divers. Experience the underwater treasures that lie at the bottom of the seabed near Paxos. Interact with sea life and the various ruins found along the shoreline, in a safe and well-directed environment.

Tripito Arch:

The Tripito Arch is a collapsed sea cave that now forms a land bridge to the peninsula of Tripito. This natural formation seems like an optical illusion at first glance. The arch can only be reached on foot, and is best navigated with a hiking map of the island. Visitors can walk across the arch.

Paxos Oasis Sub:

The Paxos Oasis Sub is definitely a once in a lifetime experience. This Boston Weller submarine travels along the edges of Paxos, showing visitors rock formations, reefs, caves, and shipwrecks. Schedules change according to the season and the particular current at any given time. Groups of 13 maximum are allowed into the vessel.

Voutoumi Beach:

Visit Voutoumi Beach, on the nearby island of Antipaxos. This secluded beach is connected to Vrika Beach (mentioned below). Voutoumi is more secluded and therefore less crowded. About 200 steps up the hill sits the Bella Vista taverna. As the name suggests, this small restaurant does indeed have a stunning view.

Vrika Beach:

Only accessible by water taxi, Vrika beach is a popular tourist destination, with perfect sand and fantastic views. Two lunch restaurants welcome locals and tourists alike. The hike between Vrika and Voutoumi beach offers some of the most beautiful views on the island of Paxos.

Weather in Paxi-Paxos

Summers are hot but dry on Paxos, and winters only slightly cooler (10-12°C). The Etesian winds blow most afternoons between May and October, though this mostly affects the western side of Paxos and other islands. These winds are problematic for sailors in the Aegean Sea, but ideal for those in search of perfect windsurfing conditions.

Travel to Paxi-Paxos

Travelling to Paxi-Paxos is simple! Flights arrive into Naxos Island National Airport (JNX) daily from both Athens (ATH) and various other European cities. Then take the ferry across the strait between Naxos and Paxos. Both car-carrying ferries and catamarans run daily throughout the Ionian Sea and more often during tourist season.

It is seldom that we stay at a property and think that for two weeks (apart from my scratching the hire car!) there was not a single thing that we would have changed or wished for. From the evening that Andreas the owner of the villa met us at the ferry, till he so kindly met us at the harbour at dawn to say goodbye, he was the perfect host. From batteries to bulbs, advice to assistance, he was friendly, discreet and helpful. Absolutely nothing was too much trouble, and all done with courtesy and a genuine interest in making our holiday a special one The villa is in perfect order, very well equipped, with a powerful wi-fi connection. The quality of the fittings is high – offhand, I cannot think of anything that we needed. It is serviced and kept spotless almost every day by Lora, who was cheerful and helpful. Villa Lilac is situated about a kilometre from the town of Gaios, up a (very!) steep track, some 50m from Andreas’ other villa on a hillside overlooking the town. Surrounded by oak trees, scrub and olive groves, the fabulous infinity pool and poolside dining area is totally private. Because of its location, you really need a hire car. I would recommend Angelo’s to hire from, but be sure to establish the terms of insurance before you turn a key. The view is stunning. It was a delight to get up at dawn each morning to watch the loom of the sun break over the distant Greece coast and reach towards Paxos. Of the three towns on Paxos, Gaios is the one to be near – there are many restaurants, bakeries and shops to visit, plus an ever-changing harbour side as the yachting flotilla’s come and go. The other two - Lakka and Loggos - are certainly worth visiting. Each has a special charm. We are boat savvy, and hired a planning motorboat from Spyros Boat Hire in Lakka most days. I can’t recommend him enough – knowledgeable, helpful and most helpful, with well-equipped easy to use boats. Don’t waste your time with the other boat hire establishments! (See separate Tripadvisor reviews) The boat took us to those hard to get to coves, and also South to the little island of Antipaxos. The coves there are stunning, and a day at anchor swimming in your very own cove with fish for company, is unforgettable. In summary, one of the best breaks that we have ever had, largely due to a beautiful Villa, and a perfect host. We will be back soon! B&G
