Local Information

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.

Our View

Nestled in amongst pine, olive and cypress trees, Koukouvaya is a hidden paradise, situated on the North West coast of Paxos, and boasts some pretty incredible views from its secluded, hill-top position. The wonderful feeling of privacy is hard to rival on Paxos, and with expansive terraces surrounding the villa, what a place in which to fully unwind and escape to!

The house is laid out over three levels, with bright, airy living spaces finished with eclectic Mexican-inspired fabrics. Brooding dark olive and coral tones really set this house apart from any others on Paxos. All the spacious bedrooms are en suite, and have access to outdoor terraces – sit and soak up the atmosphere and unforgettable views, or simply enjoy a moment’s peace with your morning coffee before the fun of the day begins.

At the highest point, the tower, there is a Jacuzzi and yoga platform, perfect for stretching it out whilst gazing out to sea, or for the less flexible, a wonderful spot for a sundowners away from the buzz of it all below. Just beyond the house itself, a second yoga platform (2019) is burrowed in among the trees
Back down on the lower terrace, you’ll find the large infinity pool, finished in beautifully alluring blue/black colour. There’s ample space for swimmers and sun-worshippers alike, and even from this lower level, the views are still quite something.
Koukouvaya has something for everyone, and then some!
