Villas in Paxos

Idyllic and unspoilt, Paxos is a little piece of island paradise. Vast olive groves and pine trees carpet the undulating landscape, fringed by the vibrant, aquamarine waters of the Ionian Sea. The peaceful and captivating countryside is interspersed by charming villages steeped in Greek atmosphere, and scattered with fascinating sites of historical and mythological interest. Only accessible by boat, Paxos is the perfect place to simply immerse yourself in the laid-back pace of local life and really get away from it all.

Paxos - Poised, pristine and untouched

Wonderfully unspoilt, Paxos awaits those seeking their own Greek odyssey. Our Paxos villas are located in the charming waterfront town of Gaios, with its bustling streets and traditional eateries.  It’s an island haven of olive groves, beaches and historic antiquities.

  • Paxos Activities

    The perfect destination for spending time in the great outdoors, Paxos’ lush countryside of olive groves and cypress trees lends itself to walking or cycling. Enjoy the peace and quiet for yourself, or take the opportunity to join one of the various organised walks around the island – where you can also learn about the flora and fauna. Many different walking tracks cover the island and as Paxos is so small, it is even possible to walk from one side of the island to the other! You are sure to come across some of the fascinating old buildings on the island including many chapels, windmills and olive-presses – dotted throughout the countryside.

  • Paxos History

    Steeped in history, you will find many fascinating sights all over the island. The tiny village of Ozias in the oldest settlement on Paxos, and you can also visit the sixth-century ruins of the churches of Agia Marina and Agios Stefanos nearby. Another building of note is the old monastery on Panagia islet, which can be seen from several of our Gaios villas. You can learn more about the history of the island at the interesting museum located by the harbour in Gaios, which boasts various artefacts that date back to ancient times. Olive oil production has traditionally been one of the major industries on Paxos, and you can visit the olive press museum between Gaios and Lakka.

  • Paxos Beaches

    Choose from myriad idyllic beaches all around the island to spend lazy days basking in total peace and tranquillity. Stretches of white pebble and sand shelve gently into the inviting, crystal clear waters, where you can enjoy a cooling dip. Many coves are only accessible on foot and remain quiet throughout the year. Hiring a boat is a great way to explore the best of the island’s coastline, and is often the only way to access the most remote of the island’s beaches. The neighbouring island of Antipaxos is also just a 15-minute journey by boat, and boasts two stunning sandy beaches lapped by the blue Ionian waters.

  • Paxos Food

    Paxos is well-known for its production of excellent olive oil (the island is covered by more than 250,000 olive trees), and as such, this is a key ingredient to many of the local dishes. You can also try delicious local seafood in the many traditional tavernas or simply purchase some freshly-caught fish to barbecue back at your villa. The famous Greek-style salad is another excellent local dish to try when you dine out, and any meal can be perfectly complemented with a glass of the wonderful wine straight from the vineyards of nearby Antipaxos.

  • Paxos Holidays - Points of Interest

    • Visit nearby Corfu, and explore historic sights, lively resorts and fine beaches.

    • Pick up some local pottery and exquisite jewellery in the shops in Gaios.

    • Explore the tiny, untouched island of Anti-Paxos, a haven of vineyards leading to white beaches and vivid waters.

    • Enjoy an alfresco meal at the small fishing harbour of Loggos, the picturesque backdrop favoured by film-makers.

    • Head to the cliffs above Ermitis Bay for fantastic sunset views.

Ramsgate Family (the eldest child is at school)
Lovely family holiday, 4th year in a row to Paxos. Hire a boat to tour around the island and anti-paxi, moor up and snorkel- its fantastic. Pull into one of the marinas for lunch and set sail again. Best place ever
Prices for everything are generally high.

Family (the eldest child is at school)
Beautiful island, with mix of isolated beaches, best accessed by boat, and some more "tourist beaches" with tavernas, water sports etc. Would definitely recommend a boat/car trip round the island early in holiday so you can identify which beaches suit you best. Gaios, Lakka and Logos all have a great range of food, all reasonably priced.
Teenagers will probably be looking for more nightlife.

Redhill Family (the eldest child is at school)
I would advise anyone looking for nightlife not to go to Paxos. It is a quiet island with a gentle way of Life. This is exactly what we were seeking for our holiday. A week of real relaxation and sunshine and this is exactly what we got. The resorts of Gaios, Loggos and Lakka are beautiful and very picturesque.
The interior of Paxos is a little scruffy. Endless olive groves interspersed with the odd abandoned car and rusting washing machine. Also the beaches are pebbly but the snorkelling is good and the coastline spectacular

Mevagissey Couple
Choice of restaurants and beaches is fabulous. Relaxing place to visit.
Not bad per se but if you are looking for a place with a party vibe this is not the place for you.

Manchester Family (the eldest child is at school)
Some lovely restaurants in Gaios and it’s nice to sit around the harbour area in the evening
Mongonissi beach worth a visit just up the coast
Do hire a boat to travel around Paxos and Anti Paxos
Let’s just say it’s nice when all the day visitors get back on the boats to Corfu and Parga!

Restaurants are great. Several in each of the three main villages. Paxos is unspoilt and not commercial which is why it’s so lovely. There are places to enjoy a drink but not clubs as such. There aren’t any ruins or obvious attractions to visit but hiring a little boat and exploring the coast is wonderful. Walking is also great. If you need A low pressure holiday.
If you need a big clubbing scene Paxos isn’t for you.

Hanley Castle Couple
Tavernas within walking distance. Lovely harbours. Not as commercialised as some. Size means easy to see all of island. Easy to hire boats. Lovely people.
Roads but forgiven as part of the charm. Tourist prices on food and drink

Hungerford Couple
Good restaurants, pretty seafront.
The Corfu to Paxos sea transfer using the hydrofoil was not a good experience. Badly maintained, broken seats, extremely noisy. poor air conditioning etc.

Return to Corfu was excellent using a fast ferry from same company - twice the time but very comfortable.
