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.
In the beautiful north east of the island we were shown this gem of a house. Just off the road down into Lakka & above Monodendri Beach is a wonderfully ancient track through the olive groves, this is Greece at its most romantic & is where The Round House can be found.
A haven of loveliness in the most beautiful surroundings. This is a fabulous building, circular with large rooms looking out across the Ionian Sea. The few rooms are spacious and the gardens lush and mature – pots of spilling bougainvillea can be found around the place, some wonderful trees and plants create cool shade, there are sun beds and loungers, chairs and tables in lots of different places, so many possibilities to while away the hours.
The outdoor areas are much bigger than you would expect and those at the front of the house have outstanding views. There is an amazing outside kitchen (fully equipped of course!) and a glorious courtyard with a circular pool for cooling off. The whole building is a feat of clever architecture with a circular sitting room with huge glass doors, perfect for drinks in the evening. The upstairs bedroom is also circular while the down stairs room gives straight onto the small pool terrace (not suitable for small children).
In May, June and September the tower can be rented on its own and is the most romantic spot for a couple or a young family or even 2 couples who want to enjoy the island in the quieter months.
