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 Though these industries have mostly been replaced by tourism, the olive groves remain, stretching over much of the islands.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.

We rate this studio higher. The venue is perfect. Appx 5 mins walk to Gaios Harbour and 10 until you get to the bars and restaurants. In the opposite direction Kloni Gouli beach is less than 10 minutes walk away. The studio itself is very comfortable and well equipped. It's larger than it looks on the photos. The outside space is lovely with good furniture and a great and clean pool. The service we received from Konstantina and the cleaner was excellent. Although Konstantina lives nearby we never felt overlooked but she made it clear that she was on hand if we needed anything. In short, a perfect studio in a great location. We're finding it very difficult to find a reason not to go back next year

                                                                                                  On line the photos looked perfect and the price was affordable to us. The lovely owner, Dimitris, kindly picked us up from the port of Gaios in Paxos and took us 5 mins up the hill to the villa. We were taken straight into to a big comfortable sitting/dining room, in front of us a glass paneled wall with sliding doors leading out onto a huge veranda. Beyond - a simply spectacular view of the old port of Gaios and the sparkling blue sea. We were in heaven and we had only put a foot inside the door! The photos on line don't do enough justice to this spacious, clean, comfortable and very well equipped villa. The veranda has good wooden sunbathing recliners and nice solid chairs and 2 tables to choose which to breakfast at! Downstairs I had one of the double bedrooms with French windows that led out onto another huge paved area with tropical plants. We were not overlooked by the row of 5 apartments on our left and it was a very quite spot full of bird song in the mornings. Dimitris is a most accommodating owner and could not do enough to make sure we had everything we needed before he headed back to his home in Athens. He is converting another fabulous house behind our villa with 5 bedrooms and an even higher veranda that will have the same view over our rooftop, giving both villas privacy from each other. This would be an amazing place to come with extended family and fill up both houses. We had a bedroom each in Letos Villa and that was perfect but this house could very comfortable take more than twice the amount - making it a bargain for a big family! It is a 5 minute walk down the hill the the beautiful town of Gaios with many more interesting shops than I have ever seen on mainland Corfu. There is CAPRICCIO an amazing Gelateria on the harbour front (Hazelnut, Fig & Ricotta, Lemon and Basil, Dark Chocolate, Pistachio, Coconut etc) all freshly made with natural ingredients several times a week. We hired a car (Ionian Car Hire the cheapest at 28 euros a day) and explored the island daily. So many INCREDIBLE little beaches and olive groves. Look out for Fotis on Monodendri Beach. 15 Euros for a top quality massage (he used to work for the Athens football team) under the olive trees metres from the sea! Paxos is now our favourite Greek island. It has not been destroyed by tourism. Letos Villa is the best villa we have stayed in in our 30 years of coming to Greece. I cannot recommend it highly enough! Thank you Dimitris for having us! We'll be back!
