I was trying to think of what to write so as not to repeat my previous reviews and other reviewers... However all the other wonderful reviews are spot on!!! A warm , kind utterly, gorgeous, generous couple who make every day of our holiday a truly special one. Each winter Pam and Keith must spend their months restoring and painting... More

Well what can I say. The only holiday we have been on where we miss the hosts as much as the place! A truly special home that is so well thought out and designed with such perfection and style- a real labour of life! From the moment Keith picked us up in his jeep to the final evening with prosecco... More

Please scroll down all the other reviews to understand why this is the 102nd excellent review! Vellianitatika is a gorgeous small village 5 minutes drive from Gaios and the retreat is beautifully positioned with 2 tavernas and the Paxos club hotel (where you can use the pool area if buying a drink) within 3 minutes walking distance. The retreat is... More

We booked for 6 nights and stayed for 8 and would happily have stayed another 8 if we could. Pam and Keith have created such a beautiful piece of paradise here, it's hard to know where to look first. Everything is perfect as has already been said from the room to the garden to the breakfast, you just can't fault... More

In May we returned to this little slice of heaven. If you're looking for a place to relax and be pampered, this is the place to go. I can honestly say that it's my favourite place to be. The accommodation is beautiful and decorated to a really high standard. You also get little extras like fresh flowers in your room,... More

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
