The crystal clear water of the Ionian Islands really must be seen to be believed. There are locals who say that the sea is such a vibrant shade of blue that it reflects on the underbellies of the seagulls as they fly across the water.
Paxos is an island of activity – it possible to charter a yacht or a motor boat (or take your own hire boat) and lunch on Anti Paxos (just 2km) – explore all the stunning coves and discover the beauty hidden in every bay. Drop the anchor and swim through the mysterious caves that dot the coastline. Enjoy the dramatic cliffs of the west or the more gentle beaches of the east.
Local restaurants have got better and better over the years and are heavily influenced by the neighbouring regions in Italy. Greek tavernas serve all the traditional favourites as well as some modern dishes – some of the islands’ best chefs have been trained in London or other large cities and have come back to the island, unable to stay away from its beauty.
White pebble bays combine with amazing caves, there is so much to do! Walk through the olive groves down to the local villages, picture perfect in their simplicity. In spring the island is an explosion of colour as the flowers come into bloom. Some gentle fishing is on offer for the more intrepid as well as snorkelling and diving.
This stunning house is high up. So high, infact, that the views are among the best from any one single house on the island. If you were to build a house on any hill on the island you would probably choose this one… and when you get to the house you’ll agree.
The situation of the house is completely unique – it is surrounded on all sides by ancient oak trees, pines, cypresses & olive trees. The stone house made from locally quarried materials is completely in tune with its surroundings.
We visited this house on a beautiful day, the sun streaming in through the large windows, perfect conditions to see it in. The owners haven’t skimped on anything. Every bedroom has its own TV, the pool is huge, soft towels in the bathrooms & lots of different places to sit outside.
Views from this gorgeous place are more beautiful than you would believe, long vistas down to the Ionian across gloriously shimmering silver-leafed olive groves.
Relax in one of the many sitting areas in the shade, enjoy uninterrupted reading time or wander down to the beach in five minutes, this house really does have it all & you couldn’t do better for a family holiday.
What’s more the house is between Loggos and Lakka so in terms of positioning you’ll be the envy of everyone!
