Island Sailing Villa Paxos

Villa Antigoni hilltop retreat was completed in 2011. With no immediate neighbours and surrounded by olive groves, there is total privacy. The villa looks down a hillside of silver olive trees, over the waterfront houses of Gaios port to the forested offshore island of St Nicholas and across the sea to the stunning Greek mainland. The Venetian fortress and the ancient nunnery of the tiny offshore islands of St. Nicholas and Panayia are clearly visible.

The villa’s natural theatre of Gaios and the skies introduces the comings and goings of yachts and fishing boats, constant colour changes and a nocturnal choreography of twinkling harbour lights and the stars. The private pool has a child-safety gate to close off the pool terrace from the villa.

Spacious interiors on the first floor open out on to an intimate dining terrace, framed by light white curtains, with spectacular views. The waterfront tavernas and shops of Gaios are just a 10 minute walk away yet there is a special feeling of detached seclusion at the Villa Antigoni.

From the entrance to ground floor there is an open-plan sitting room with WiFi/satellite TV/iPod docking station/CD player, dining area and kitchen; one double bedroom with en suite bathroom; one twin bedroom and bathroom with shower. Stairs lead down to a double bedroom and en suite bathroom with shower.

Beach House, Paxos

Island Sailing Gallery

Not everyone wants a villa with a swimming pool. If you have a beach on your doorstep, the sea is your natural swimming pool. Even so, it’s hard to find a villa on Paxos just above the sea. The Beach House is just a 3 minute walk away from a beautiful beach.

Located on the east coast, 2 kilometres south of Gaios, the Beach House looks out across the sea to the stunning Greek mainland and along Paxos’ coastline to the tiny Panagia island, opposite the entrance to Gaios harbour.

The house is not a modern, ritzy villa – its Italian owners have created a comfortable home for those wanting to escape busy, noisy lifestyles and relax in a natural theatre of soft colours: white floors, walls and wooden ceilings with light blue fabrics balance with the sea and white pebbles below.

The Beach House is surrounded by hillsides of olive groves, pine and cypress trees and myrtle bushes. By night the twinkling lights of mountain villages on the Greek mainland are visible.

Car hire is recommended. The pretty port of Gaios with a great selection of tavernas, cafes, shops and boat hire is a 5 minute drive away. Mongonisi with a sandy beach, a friendly taverna and a café bar is 1 kilometre away. Paxos Beach Hotel with some nice facilities including tennis and a restaurant is just 500 metres away.

On the ground floor there is an open-plan sitting room with WiFi/satellite TV/DVD, dining area and kitchen; one double bedroom and a bathroom with shower. On the first floor there is a double bedroom with en suite bathroom with shower; one twin bedroom and en suite bathroom with shower and a single bedroom.

The Old Residency, Gaios, Paxos

Island Sailing Gallery

The Old Residency is possibly the most stylish apartment in Gaios. The dramatic entrance to the port of Gaios has the pine-forested island of Agios Nicholas on one side and on the other side a waterfront of small fishing boats and yachts moored in front of just a few café bars. In between the café bars is the gated entrance to arguably the most impressive building in Gaios: the old British Residency.

Built during the Venetian occupation of Paxos in the early 18th Century, the Old Residency was home to the British Governor from 1815 to 1864, when Paxos and the other Ionian islands were ceded to and reunited with Greece. In 2014 the owner decided to bring the apartment into the 21st Century and the Old Residency is now a stylish, spacious, comfortable, waterfront apartment. Views from the large front windows are across the water to Agios Nicholas' Venetian fortress, surrounded by tall pine trees and along the waterfront to Gaios square. A rear terrace incorporates a barbecue and sitting area.

Gaios square, the pedestrianized side streets of shops and the waterfront tavernas and cafes are just a 2 minute stroll. A beach is a 5 minute stroll. A hired boat can be moored directly below the apartment - an ideal way to explore the coastline of coves and beaches and to get to the sandy beaches of AntiPaxos (a speedboat shuttle service to Anti Paxos is just a 3 minute walk away).

There is an open-plan sitting room, dining area and kitchen; one double bedroom; one twin bedroom; shower room; one twin bedroom and en suite bathroom with shower.

The prices quoted are for 3-6 people per week. Please ask about reduced prices for 2 people in May, June, September and October.
