We had such a lovely stay in September it really is a beautiful place and of course a stunning island! Weather not on our side entirely, we still had a few days of sun but who cares when you are staying somewhere so stunning! We totally recommend staying here if visiting Paxos but we don't really need to just look... More

Our 5th year now with Pam and Keith and every year it just gets better. This small boutique family run B&B is a very precious find and comes highly recommended. The family's standards are very high in terms of style, service, food preparation and presentation, comfort, decor, cleanliness, the list is endless ...... Vellianitatika is a very quiet village so... More

This was our second visit to The Olive Press and another great holiday. The second week our two daughters Charlotte and Rebecca joined us, to celebrate my 50th birthday. The second time one always knows what to expect, but walking through the door once more, was like home from home. Pam had as always made everything just perfect with her... More

Apologies for tardiness in writing review, it's been a busy time at home. We stayed a week at The Olive Press back in early June. As others have attested, everything is faultless on a holiday with these lovely Brits. Beautiful accommodation, fantastic welcome pack and they are on hand if you need them (and not intrusive when you don't). We've... More

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
