“The island, the villa and the host were all top class - we had a great time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014 for a stay in August 2013

We all loved our stay with Eva at her wonderful home. The hospitality is second to none, and we were able to make the most of our holiday thanks to Eva's informative and knowledgeable advice. The villa is a great place to relax and unwind - very clean and well maintained, and in an ideal location to wander into the town whilst enjoying the right amount of seclusion. The island itself is fabulous - our teenage girls enjoyed the atmosphere and night-life, whilst we had many lovely meals in hospitable bars and cafes. We would all recommend a holiday at Eva's!

“Truly paradise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Eva Aravanis is a great host! We felt very well in her beautiful rooms overlooking the sea. The villa is nicely equipped surrounded by flowers everywhere. Due to heading northeast the veranda is cool and within natural shadow for the whole day. The kids loved the fantastic pool and the villa, so that it was hard to convince them to leave the villa to go to the beach. We will definitely would like come back. Paxos is just great!

“Very nice property, and easy walking distance to Gaios.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

I booked this place looking for a rental that shared a pool in hopes that my boys (8&10) would have someone to play with at the pool. I was not disappointed. There were two other families there and it was perfect. It never felt crowded at the pool. Eva really outdid herself with the pool. It was perfect to swim in or just cool off after getting some sun. But we weren't there a lot because of all the other beaches to see (and Antipaxos to visit).

Eva was a gem! She gave us recommendations and where NOT to go as well. And she didn't just direct us to her friends (like many others do). Her villas are just a short walk to Gaios. It was perfectly located. We only rented quads for 7 of our 9 days and didn't miss them the last two days because it was easy to get to beaches around her place or to the port to grab a boat to Anitpaxos (which you must go to!)

Our only problem with our visit was the wi-fi, but I have to say it wasn't Eva's fault. So if wi-fi is VERY important, I would just ask Eva about the situation before you go. However, there is always free wi-fi in Gaios at the little restaurants and coffee shops in the town. So, if it's just the occasional email to check that would definitely suffice (it did for us).

Overall, we had an amazing time and would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Eva's villas. She is wonderful and so was our place. We stayed in the villa next to hers on the top. Great view from the balcony.

LAST NOTE: If you have a cat allergy, you could be uncomfortable here (as my son was - we didn't know he was allergic to cats!) IF you don't have medication to help. Eva has four cats at her place and they do visit occasionally the top villa. They are sweet and cute, but just to let you know. That said, the island is FULL of cats...so come prepared for that ;)

“A Perfect Family Home for an Island Getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We stayed with Eva for two weeks and enjoyed every minute of our stay in Paxos. She is a great host, is excellent with children and maintains a very high quality establishment. The views from the apartment are fantastic and we ended up spending a lot of family time at the pool and the local beach that is 50 m below the villa. We took Eva's advice and rented a boat for two days to explore the many private beaches and caves on Paxos and Anti-Paxos. It was truly an amazing experience and we will be back next year.

“An idyllic holiday destination in the Ionian Sea”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

My wife and I stayed for a week at Villa Avgerini in September, 2012. The villa we had was beautifully presented with a breathtaking view over the water. After weeks of small accommodation in other more popular destinations,viz. Mykonons, Santorini and Corfu, Villa Avgerini was everything and more that we could have wished for, spacious, new with an abundance of natural light and air. Our host, the delightful Eva, was very obliging and a veritable wealth of information on local restaurants and attractions (beaches etc) She made our stay memorable and exciting. This is a destination that is sure to please with friendly helpful people like Eva. !00% recommended.

In a ideal location, just a few steps away from Gaios (2 min walk distance) is situated the Eva's place (villas Avgerini). A more than a comfortable place to stay to enjoy moments of relaxation and real leissure. The breathtaking view, the piscine, the spotless villas will ensure ideal holidays for all. We had great time during our stay and what we appreciate most was the hospitality and friendliness of Eva. She was willing to provide with all the information needed about beautiful places to eat, swim etc....
Eva, we really thank you for all..............
