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 Though these industries have mostly been replaced by tourism, the olive groves remain, stretching over much of the islands.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

                                                            A really magical place

                                                            Our stay at Villa Adriana was even better than we had hoped. It's a beautifully renovated old house with a fresh, contemporary interior that has none of the slightly 'frilly' furnishings found in many of the other rental villas on the island. Dora, the lovely house manager, was waiting for us when we arrived and a welcome basket had been left for us on the kitchen table. It was a real treat to have such a great selection of books in the bookcase, two super-sized hammocks, a well-equipped kitchen, a really roomy shower, fluffy towels and a twice-weekly cleaning service (this included the removal of rubbish bags so we didn't have to usual holiday chore of having to schlep around the area trying to find the local bins). Dora speaks excellent English and looked after us wonderfully - even going out of her way to make sure we got off the island to catch our flight home during a national strike. And the garden.....a real movie-star's retreat because it's so secluded. We were ucky to see the garden in its late-Spring mode with the lavender beds, wild garlic, mountain sage, broom and roses providing spectacular vistas, flashes of colour and honeyed-breezes. There is also a spectacular view of the turquoise sea in Lakka bay from the upper terrace. The best thing of all is that we had three weeks without getting into a car. The villa is a short walk away from lovely Lakka village and two of the most secluded and breathtaking beaches on the island. The village itself is well equipped with some good, affordable restaurants, several grocery shops/bakeries etc and a warm and welcoming community. Bliss!

                                                            Our visit started with a friendly coffee with Andreas in a harbour cafe where he gave us lots of information about places to go and made us feel very welcome. The villa is up a steep hill and the views are spectacular though still very close to town. The facilities in the villa were excellent with striking artworks inside and a great outdoor seating area by the pool. I would thoroughly recommend this property and we are planning a return visit!
