Paxos boasts some of the bluest waters in Europe, you would be forgiven for dreaming that you were in the Caribbean. With its endless olive groves and warm waters, Paxos is the most glorious island year round.
There is no airport on the island which has enabled Paxos to retain its simplicity and there is something very pure about the place.
Mass tourism has certainly not reached this idyllic spot, the tavernas are properly local but, due to the attraction of the island to the Italian visitor in recent years the standard of food is amazing for such a small place.
Enjoy delicious home made pasta, glorious salads and scrumptious fresh fish in great surroundings.
Take a boat to visit the white sands of Anti Paxos for the day – book lunch on the beach there and leave your boat bobbing just a few metres away in the blue bay – there is no marina in Anti Paxos, just drop your anchor and swim ashore!
For those cocktail lovers there is the trendy Ben’s beach with its decking and dancing at sunset…certainly the place to go and see the beautiful Italians. Swim around into Lakkos Bay just by Lakka for the ultimate in barefoot chic. Lakka also offers brilliant scuba diving. Lakka has good restaurants and bars as well as boat hire and some very pretty walking. There are some gift shops and an excellent ice cream shop! The scuba diving is based in Lakka and there is a good chemist, several supermarkets and it now has a cash point. For delicious bread head up the road to Loggos’ wonderful bakery.
Those who visit Paxos go back and back.
This is a fabulous Paxos villa and a family home, we met the owner at the bottom of the drive and our jaws hit the floor by the time we had finished our tour. It’s prime position just above the water will make you the envy of all your friends. With views across the bay to the village of Lakka you will want for nothing (except possibly a delicious meal at one of the wonderful restaurants just minute’s walk from the house). The owner has created an oasis of calm. The two houses are on separate levels with the glorious swimming pool between them. Each house boasts its own kitchen and sitting room so spread out! If you bore of the space and wonder that is The Waterside House, take about 30 steps down the little path to the sea where there are kayaks and many moorings for little boats.
Lakka is a dreamy little Paxos village with wonderful restaurants, one of the best on the island is a short walk around the quay from Waterside House.
This beautiful house is in the most incredible position RIGHT on the water looking over the bay of Lakka and its turquoise waters. Anyone who is a Paxos regular will know that it is such a prime position and ideal for families who enjoy being ’in the thick of it’ and yet on a very peaceful little stretch looking across the bay to the beaches opposite which are all within easy walking distance.
Houses like this don’t come up for rent very often – it’s such a treat to find a house where your boat is kept at the bottom of the property!
