Good to know...Mongonissi House can be offered as a 3-bedroom property for departures on 22 May and 5, 12 and 19 June for parties of up to five people. Please call our Destination Specialists to book at a discounted rate.


Tethered to the southern tip of Paxos lies Mongonissi, a miniature, Russian-doll replica of its neighbour. The sheltered bay between the two makes Mongonissi a popular spot with the yachting fraternity, tempted by easy moorings and the prospect of a delightful waterfront lunch.

Named in honour of this special place, Mongonissi House is a tasteful take on traditional Paxiot architecture, with clean lines and room-height glass doors and windows that fill the living spaces with light. It sits in a slightly elevated position, carefully chosen to ensure 360 degrees of sublime sea and island views that stretch as far as Corfu. The terraces and gardens run halfway around the house, so you can savour this privileged aspect from sunrise to sunset and on into the gentle warmth of a star-lit summer evening. The five-bedroom space is both generous and practical for a small group or large family, with a magnificent private pool, deck and terraces ensuring play and relaxation room for all. Paxos regulars will be familiar with the island’s resident cat population, some of whom are cared for by the owners of adjacent villa; cats being famously resistant to herding, you may find them sunning themselves on your terrace from time to time, or curled up in the shade of a convenient olive tree.

This almost-island has all the romance of a castaway escape, yet with easy access to the rest of Paxos thanks to a small road link to Gaios, just five kilometres away. A five-minute downhill walk brings you to sandy Mongonissi beach where you can enjoy a drink or light meal by the sea, or hire a motor boat and find your own pebbly paradise amongst the many pristine little coves that encircle Paxos.

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.
