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

Call of the search... We've found paradise and it's called Vellianitatika Retreat. Owned and ran by the amazing, Keith, Pam and Adam the retreat was more than we could have imagined. From the amazing breakfasts taken outside every morning to the recommendations for dinner and places to visit, to the organising of transport and the provisions of clean beach towels... 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

We spent our vacation discovering the beautiful island of Paxos and its little sister island just opposite, Antipaxos. Despite the buzz of the peak summer season, Paxos-Antipaxos can take you back in time, to the unspoiled Mediterranean landscape. It is in this spirit that you find the Vellianitatika Retreat (VR). VR is, simply, a wonderful place to stay. It takes... More

My best friend and I arrived at Paxos port totally exhausted after the rather long journey (It is so worth going the extra mile and going to an island without an airport) to be met by lovely Keith. Their village is stunning - how you could imagine Greece to be if you were to look in a wonderful photographic book!... More

We spent here our most amazing holyday in Greece! Since many years we use to spend one week in summer in a different Greek island, and this was our first time in Paxos. Ok, the island is wonderful, full of olives threes and the sea is fantastic, however what “made the difference” for our holyday was Pam, Keith and this... More

Our stay at the Vellianitatika Retreat was heaven on earth. We travelled with our two children (8 & 15 yrs) and checked into our ideal home from 31 July - 4 August booking both rooms and having the whole retreat to ourselves. A tranquil haven with everything you could wish for at your fingertips and more. We were thoroughly spoilt... More
