Local Information

The crystal clear water of the Ionian islands has to be witnessed first hand, it is said that the sea is so blue that it reflects on the undersides of the seagulls as they fly across the water!

It is possible to charter a yacht or motor boat to lunch on the white sands of the nearby island of Anti Paxos (2km). Exploring the hidden beauty in every bay by boat is a real treat, drop the anchor and swim through the mysterious caves that dot the coastline.

There is scuba diving, great snorkelling and some gentle water sports in the north of the island.

The local restaurants are of a high standard serving both traditional Greek food and the most delicious Italian cuisine.

Eating out on Paxos is a pleasure. White pebble bays on the east coast and majestic white cliffs and deep caves on the west give families a range of things to explore. For the “intrepid” there are walks through

flower filled olive groves, gentle fishing, snorkelling and diving.

Our View

Owned by a wonderful architect and his wife, this lovely house in the olive groves has been beautifully designed and well thought out. The owner wanted to create a peaceful oasis in this rural setting and we think he has achieved just exactly what he set out to do. The building itself was an old traditional olive press house, dating back to the 1800s, and has been restored beautifully to create the perfect holiday hideaway.

The house has four bedrooms and a delightful swimming pool with lots of shaded seating and different places to enjoy the garden. As well as the usual sun loungers there are also huge bean bags from which to enjoy your latest bestseller while you soak up the Greek rays.

The main house has three bedrooms (2 are on the ground floor) and a really large kitchen/diner sitting room which is open plan. The main room has the original workings of an old olive press which are much a feature of the room – a circular glass area in the floor covers the lower workings but shows intriguingly the technology of the press.

Each bedroom has been painted in a strong colour – from blue upstairs to the more natural green and bark in other rooms, this is a house which is quirky and unlike our other, plainer villas. The kitchen has a sociable big breakfast bar as well as somewhere near to sit inside – and a big outside table. The open plan sitting room has been beautifully kitted out with white covers on the furniture and delicate drawings on the white walls.

The wooden shutters have been painted a delicate shade of sage green which beautifully blend with the natural surroundings. Coupled with the stone of the house the architect has created his idea of heaven.
All in all you’d be so happy in this house, surrounded by nature and the dappled light of the ever-changing shadows from the olive trees.
