  • Ideal for a couple or small family

A labour of love would be the best way to describe this delightfully crafted cottage with sweeping views down a beautiful valley towards Lakka and the sea in the distance. The panorama is framed by ancient olive trees, lending a sense of place and permanence to the rather chic contemporary design both inside and out. Cocooned in this peaceful and authentic-feeling little spot you’ll find everything you need to make the most of the blissfully long days, with a practical summer kitchen on one side, and comfortable chairs for reading or snoozing in the shade on the other.

Spacious enough for a family thanks to a twin-bedded mezzanine, the cottage also makes a perfect base for a couple in the flower-filled landscapes of spring or the golden days of autumn, when the island is quieter and there are many walking paths to explore. Lovely Lakka and its protected bay can be reached in 25 minutes on foot or five minutes by car. Here you’ll find a sumptuous selection of restaurants and a few laid-back bars on the water’s edge - plus a lovely beach just five minutes’ stroll along the coast from the centre of the village. Loggos is only a further 10 minutes by car whilst the capital Gaios is another 10 minutes, putting you within easy reach of everything you might want to see or do on this most picturesque of islands.

Our choice of Greek properties is as diverse as the islands themselves, ranging from simple seaside charm to genuine luxury and style. Much of our portfolio is privately owned, and price alone is therefore not a universal guide. We contract all our accommodation in person, and each property has its individual appeal. To help you make the right choice based on your own priorities, we have devised a simple grading guide to be considered in conjunction with each individual property description, awarding up to a maximum of five stars for the below categories.

There are few better ways of relaxing than on a luxury holiday in Paxos, where days fill up beautifully with sunbathing, swimming, snorkelling and dining in style, the sea just metres from your table. Amble through ancient olive groves and you’ll catch glimpses of startlingly turquoise bays, the dramatic west-coast cliffs or the Epiros Mountains. In spring, there’s also a haze of purple honesty, wild irises and lilies and a sky that’s alive with birdlife, from hawks to skylarks.

Complete the picture with a stay in one of our handpicked luxury villas, apartments or our unique Adult Only Simpson Hotels and make the most of this peaceful island.
