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.
Lakka is a seaside village 5 minutes drive from the house, with good local tavernas, coffee shops, supermarkets, bakery, boat hire and scuba diving. Loggos is a 7 minute drive, where you can find some of the most well known tavernas in the island.
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.
If you’re after a small but perfectly formed holiday villa then you’ve found just the place. This two bedroomed stone house has been beautifully created by its owner – without compromising on quality he has built one of the finest little villas we know.
The house has lovely views across the Ionian Sea – it has been built high up with local stone and is surrounded by beautiful oaks, cypresses and olive trees. Each bedroom is a good size with its own en suite bathroom and each has a great view.
Visiting the house in the spring – on a gorgeous sunny day we might add – the house was looking at its very best. The pool, set just outside the sitting room, has a great terrace with sun beds and two different seating areas. And the owner showed us the path that has been created which takes you down to Lakkos beach in 5 minutes.
If you feel like a change from Lakkos then take a slightly different meander down to Monodendri beach and you’ll be at Ben’s bar (only the coolest spot on the island!) – everyone will want to be at Perla as it really is perfect.
