I've been fortunate enough to stay in some lovely hotels all around the world, but never have I encountered the depth of warmth and hospitality I did at the Paxos Village Guest House. And let's forget the name. It feels much more like Pam and Keith's place. To be honest, I found it difficult to believe that a venue could... More

After poring over the previous glowing reviews in the run up to our holiday, we had very high expectations of the Retreat. Our experiences surpassed even these. From the moment Keith collected us from the port after we disembarked the hydrofoil, to the moment he delivered us back to the ferry for our return journey, everything about our stay was... More

From start to finish this has been a perfect holiday. All arrangements for ferry and car hire were made by Adam, we were met at the port by Keith and taken to our accommodation which surpassed even the photos on the website. Pam and Keith pointed out places to go and any equiptment that might be needed(trecking poles, beach shoes... More

My wife and I just finished staying with hosts Keith and Pam, and everything about our stay with them was perfect. Their recommendations were spot on, breakfasts were always delicious, and the space was utterly charming and restful. On top of that, they made us feel like we were staying with good family friends. The B&B is perfectly situated about... More

We have just arrived back from our wonderful holiday to Velliantatika Retreat. From the time of booking, everything was perfect. Adam helped with the booking of the accommodation and also provided helpful advice regarding the hydrofoil. He even booked the tickets for us. We were collected from the port by Keith who was so helpful and very friendly. This made... More

VR We stayed at VR for 5 nights 30/06 - 05/07-2014 & I must say what a pleasure it was from the first correspondent I had with Adam. Adam the owners son deals with all bookings & even helps with travel arrangements to & from the islands if you require his help. We arrived in the afternoon to Paxos from... More

Ok, this is our fourth trip to vr and we never ever tire of the place. Infact it seems to get better. This is a home and a b&b full of warmth, fun, interesting conversation and a huge heart and soul. Stepping into the outdoor area is like something from a magazine. All pastel colours with a double sunbed and... More
