Local Information

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.

The beautiful and unspoilt fishing village of Loggos has a small selection of tavernas and bars. There is a small supermarket, a fabulous bakery and lots of gift shops, Lakka also has a good choice of tavernas and bars (and also has a cashpoint) and Gaios has the only bank.

It is possible to charter a yacht or motor boat to lunch on the white sands of the nearby island of Anti Paxos (2km). Exploring the hidden beauty in every bay by boat is a real treat, drop the anchor and swim through the mysterious caves that dot the coastline.

White pebble bays on the east coast and majestic white cliffs and deep caves on the West give families a range of things to explore. For the “intrepid” there are walks through flower filled olive groves, gentle fishing, snorkelling and diving.

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.

Those who visit Paxos go back and back.

Our View

This house is in the most wonderful location in the South of the island with sought after views of the islet of Panagia and the Greek mainland. Nestled in the olive groves not far from the coast the house catches a lovely breeze from the sea. Within walking distance of the house is the main town on the island, Gaios. Teenagers who want to go out in the evenings will love the gentle nightlife on offer there. It has a plethora of waterfront bars and restaurants alongside more traditional tavernas.

Taking a boat to the island of Anti-Paxos couldn’t be easier. Pick up lunch from one of the bakeries in Gaios and your boat from the harbour and you’ll arrive at the white sandy beaches in under 30 minutes.

The stylish Italian owners have created a perfect combination of traditional Grecian blue shutters and white washed linens with modern furnishings and blue glass chandeliers. The front facing windows frame picture perfect views, gaze out onto the rustling olive trees and sapphire sea.

The bedrooms are kept airy and light with a seasidey feel – gauzy white curtains and luxurious bedspreads. The bathrooms are just as they should be- clean and neutral.

The outside area is generous and scattered with white sunbeds and wicker loungers – perfect for soaking up the Greek sunshine with a good book.

We’re so happy to have this gem of a house in our portfolio.
