Other terraces on either side of the house are accessed from the bedrooms and ensure that there is plenty of space for everyone to find their own perfect spot. The house is surrounded by olive trees, shrubs and bougainvilleas. There are views through the surrounding olive trees to the sea and the Greek mainland.

Two small pebbly beaches are a 3-minute walk below the house, flat bathing rocks are 50 metres away from the villa while the beach of Mongonissi is 1km away (a 15-minute walk). There are several other small beaches on the coast heading towards Gaios, all within a few minutes drive.

great family villa in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and 2 year old son spent 12 days at the villa in August and absolutely loved it. The villa is well-equipped, pretty and the pool and outside areas are lovely. Location wise is it perfect; close enough to Gios and also to beaches and other towns. The only negative is that you don't get the view (which is beautiful) but other than that I could not fault it. The owner Aimilia was lovely and very helpful - we had an issue with the AirCon when we first arrived and it was fixed within the hour. We really loved our stay (Paxos is amazing) and would definitely consider returning.

Paxos is the smallest of the Ionian Islands, lying just 11 km from the southernmost tip of Corfu. Just 20 sq kms (8km long and 3km wide), the island can be considered one immense olive grove and can be easily traveled and explored in a couple of days.

Made for complete relaxation, a holiday on Paxos offers visitors a rare and genuine slice of the un-hurried, tranquil and traditional Greek life style. With no airport, a boat is the only way to reach the island. Since it takes a bit of extra effort to get here, Paxos is particularly attractive to independent travelers.

Gaios is the largest of the three main villages on Paxos, and shows its Venetian and British heritage in the colourful buildings that line the water front. Life in Gaios focuses on the harbour where in high season, awe-inspiring yachts jostle for space, along with local boats of all kinds. A super variety of Tavernas, chic boutiques and old-fashioned stores make Gaios a fascinating place to visit, with a Greek atmosphere all of its own.

Loggos is one of the prettiest villages in Paxos and remains unspoiled. The tiny fishing harbour of Loggos itself is enchanting, colourful enough for any artist or photographer, with a refreshingly intimate atmosphere.

Lakka lies at the head of a deep narrow bay on the north coast of Paxos. Tree-covered headlands almost enclose the bay, forming a natural harbour that attracts a variety of yachts.With numerous small shops, bars and tavernas with a pleasing variety of food on offer, Lakka, with its friendly locals, has a special character all of its own.

Many people visit Paxos to enjoy walking the miles of donkey paths that crisscross the island through the olive and citrus trees. There are literally hundreds of footpaths on Paxos and anti Paxos. You can amble through the olive groves or take a more challenging hike on the west coast cliff path. There are walks to suit every taste and ability. All the walks on the island are simply beautiful and an array of colour and amazing scenery.

If you want to see more clearly the world beneath the waves, a perfect activity on Paxos is to take your snorkel gear to the beach, it gives you an insight into the rock and fauna life in the bays around Paxos and anti Paxos. Or for the more adventurous, there are scuba diving schools on the island, either for experienced divers or complete novices who wish to learn.

The beaches on Paxos are small and numerous, many of which can only be reached by boat. Most of the beaches are stone, shale or pebble and all are considered safe for swimming. The beach at the village of Lakka has the most sand making it popular with families with young children. There is however another sandy beach at the south side of the island at Mongonisi.

Even in the busiest months of July and August, it is still possible to find a quiet beach. Of course if you hire a private motor boat to explore the area, this task will be much easier. There are a multitude of companies on Paxos who hire out small motor boats which you can then self drive around the island and over to Anti Paxos. Don’t forget if the beaches get too crowded for your liking, the option of having a private pool at the villa is the perfect alternative.

Visiting Antipaxos while vacationing on Paxos is the easiest thing since island hopping takes almost 10-15 minutes by boat. Anti Paxos is a beautiful island, with two stunning sandy beaches and tavernas on the beach, so you can go and relax and enjoy swimming in tranparetn emerald blue waters. There are several companies offering day trips around Paxos and over to Anti Paxos. Antipaxos is also one of the most suitable destinations for sailing fans as its numerous coves and small bays guarantee unique explorations and incomparable images, some of the best ones in the entire Greece.
