The gentle pace of a Paxos holiday
Away from the well-trodden tourist destinations, Paxos is graced with quaint fishing villages, quiet beaches and the outstanding beauty of its ancient olive groves, crossed by meandering paths and dry-stone walls, and scattered with wild flowers in early summer. The clear turquoise waters of the Mediterranean add to the allure your luxury villa holiday and on an island this small, a friendly harbourside taverna or peaceful cove are never far away.
Paxos’ three villages share just four taxis and yet this gorgeous Greek island is home to 63 churches. Many date back to Venetian times, as does the picturesque capital Gaios, where a sweep of Venetian houses encircle the harbour front. It’s an wonderful island for exploring on foot, blessed with abundant Ionian bird life and the greatest reward for all that wandering is to relax later at home in your luxury villa with private pool.
