Reading the last ten or so reviews it is difficult to add anything. Keith and Pam run a simply superb B & B where everything is excellent and nothing is too much trouble. They could make a far better living teaching five star hotel chains how to make perfect hospitality seem easy but thank goodness they don't. Read the other... More

We spent 6 nights at Paxos Village retreat and it was truly the best holidays of our life!! Pam and Keith (and Adam who helped booking the boat and scooter) are just the best host we could dream for our little retreat in Paxos. If i could, i would keep this place secret only for my husband and I :-)... More

The first few nights of our honeymoon in Paxos, we were lucky enough to stay here. It's simply gorgeous, tucked away in a tiny village with an ancient church tower, atop southern Paxos. The retreat itself has been amazingly restored by Keith and Pam. Every detail has been beautifully considered and artfully realised, creating an oasis of calm that we... More

We have just returned from our second visit to vellianitatika retreat and it just gets better each time. Pam and Keith welcomed us like old friends and we just felt our shoulders drop as soon as we walked through the garden gate. Pam is so hot on all her 'little touches', from fresh flowers on your pillow each day, to... More

Don't hesitate, just book! The VR's excellent reviews had given my boyfriend and me very high expectations in the run-up to our 8 nights here. These were all surpassed by this fantastic idyll; a truly beautiful place created and managed with love and care by Pam and Keith. Our shoulders dropped and we started to relax as soon as we...

Retreat is a really fitting name for this fantastic place. We had looked at all the pictures for Velliantatika before we went and I have to say that they don't do it justice. Pam and Keith have created a beautiful oasis on the island of Paxos. We absolutely loved our room which had everything you needed and great views across... More

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
