Koukla House is all about privacy and peace of mind. Situated in the centre of the island of Paxos in established gardens totally surrounded by stone walls and less than 10mins drive from all of the 3 main villages (Lakka, Loggos & Gaios).

Just a short walk will take you to one of Paxos' stunning sunset tavernas & a little further from here you will find some of Paxos' most amazing walks & cliff top view points to enjoy your very own sunset with a bottle of wine.

Magazia is just 2mins by car (10mins by foot) offering tavernas, mini markets, village bakery & one of the oldest quirkiest Kafenions on the island.

One double bedroom & one twin bedroom (Twin is en suite)

Koukla House is owned by an Italian family so as you would expect there are extensive outdoor al Fresco dining choices & a large spacious terrace which surrounds the large pool.

Stunning views towards the Greek mainland & to the southern tip of Corfu can be enjoyed from the terraces & pool areas.

Koukla House has a very romantic story attached. The owners father from Milan bought Kouklas as a ruin along with his main house next door & restored Kouklas & gave it to his daughter as a wedding present.

About Manuela

We are a couple married since 2004. Manuela is a lawer and I am an IT and Purchase Manager in a small financial company. We are parents of two.

Manuela purchased this house in 1991

Why Manuela chose Paxos

This property was donated as a wedding gift. We are totally in love with it and the Island and could not image any better place to stay.

What makes this house unique

The first difference against many similar offers is that this is "our" house, not just a business. This is a love affair and our satisfaction is to know that our guests feel at home like we do.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Such a peaceful, romantic spot with a great pool. We have been thinking about it all winter.

A wonderful two month holiday in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to plan a two month holiday on Paxos, where we had been on a number of occasions over the years and absolutely love it. We chose Koukla House because of it's obvious charm and peaceful position. The owner and Stuart, the property manager, were extremely helpful with the whole booking process. We arrived on 1 May to be met by Stuart at the port. We reached Koukla House and it is even better that we had expected. The position and views are wonderful and the house is very comfortable (especially the beds) and extremely welll equipped. It is a real home with a welcoming homely atmosphere. We were incredibly well looked after during our two months: the cleaner and pool man arrived discreetly and Stuart was always on hand at short notice and nothing at all was too much trouble. The outside entertaining areas are superb and the large pool has ample seating space around it and great views over the countryside to the sea. Paxos is magical and the village of Magazia is about a 15 minute walk with a new mini market, good tavernas and a great coffee/cake shop. All in all a wonderful holiday in a charming home. I would not hesitate in recommending Koukla House - we would ceretainly want to return. A big thank you.

Koukla House aka (also known as) paradise

  • 5 of 5

Stuart was awaiting us at the harbour, when we arrived on Paxos in the late evening. He presented us with a rental car and directions to Koukla House. Although it wasn't that easy to find the house in the dark, we made it.

The next morning, we were finally able to see Koukla House in all its beauty. Wonderful location, stunning interior and outdoor seating areas, an amazing pool and most importantly (for us): Silence and privacy.

Thank you Stuart for providing us with water and tea for breakfast. Your hospitality didn't go unnoticed and we felt very well taken care of and at home.

Another big thanks to our cleaning lady Matilda - you were unbelievably friendly and considerate!

The island of Paxos doesn't dissapoint. The small towns are charming and the harbours offer great restaurants, bars and cafés. The atmosphere of Logos is contagious. We found everything we needed, including supermarkets, post office and ATMs without any problems.

We definitely recommend the oldest tavern on the island, established in 1888 - The food is very authentic. We also recommend renting a boat (there are tons of rentals) and exploring the island, including many beaches, which were perfectly suitable for taking a dip in the refreshing and crystal-clear water. Lastly, we urge you to get a rental car for the time of your stay, because the buses aren't very reliable.

Finally, a huge thank you to Samantha for booking us cab rides, ferry tickets and the rental car. Both you and Stuart did an amazing job!

We will be back to Koukla House for sure!

KOUKLA is my Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Koukla is a very special place. Small but perfectly formed. It's simple and stylish with everything you could possibly want for a relaxing holiday. We have been coming to Paxos for 20years and there is no comparison to any other villa on the island. Cesare (the owner)and Stuart (the manager) both run this house in a friendly but efficient manner and if you're one of the lucky ones to nab a week here, as it's always booked up, you will not be disappointed.

Idyllic Stay at Koukla

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Koukla as a family of four was perfect. The house is charming and the pool and gardens beautifully designed. The shaded outdoor eating and seating areas were especially lovely - brilliant for outdoor breakfasts and retreating from the afternoon sun. We look forward to returning soon.

Owner's Response: Dear Harriet, thank you so much for sending me your review. I'm really happy to hear that everything was perfect to you. This winter I worked hard to get it even better, including a total revamp of the swimming pool, a new minimal look of the terrace, new pieces of forniture and so on. With kindest regards, Cesare.

Fab spot in Paxos

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this gorgeous house in Paxos , with stunning views . Everything was very well communicated before and during our stay, our car hire and ferry tickets were organised for us and we were met from the ferry with our hire car. The house was as described , we loved the outdoor space . We absolutely loved Bens bar , our favourite bar on the island . Cesar and Stuart were both very helpful, and can't rate them highly enough .We will be coming back !

Koukla House is located right in the middle of the island, so its an easy 10mins drive to practically everything. Very nice 30mins walk into Lakka through some of Paxos' most unknown & beautiful hamlets.

Located on the west coast of Paxos just a short walk from Kastanida is the small peaceful hamlet of Manesatika. Situated in one of the best areas of Paxos for walking & sunsets together with one of Paxos' sunset tavernas, you would be hard pushed to find a better area to stay. Stunning views towards Corfu & the Greek mainland right from the terraces of the house & its large swimming pool.
