Overview
Cottage -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Loggos, Paxos, Ionian Islands
Early 19th century olive mill fully reconverted into a 55 sq.m. self-catered stone-built cottage, set in a tranquil and secluded 500-year old olive grove in the island of Paxos (Ionian Sea-Greece).Facilities include: one double bedroom, 2 built bunk beds in sitting area, spacious bathroom, dining area, fully equipped kitchen, open air cook oven & BBQ, 2 courtyards as well as ample space in the surrounding property, rain water from refurbished traditional cistern, and maid service 3 times a week. The thick stone walls and the ceiling fans ensure a comfortable temperature in hot days. However, given global warming, some days (and nights) are too hot to bear without air-conditioning. So two discreet but very efficient A/C units have been recently added to make your stay more comfortable.The house is situated near the village of Fontana o... Read more

About the neighborhood
Paxos is a cluster of small islands that also includes, apart from the main island (with a total surface of 19 sq. km.), Antipaxos (3 sq. km.), Daskalia, Kaltsonissi, Mongonissi, Agios Nikolaos and Panagia. Paxos is located in the North Ionian Sea, 7 miles from the south coast of the island of Corfu and 10 miles from the coast of mainland Greece (Epirus). It is easily accessible by hydrofoil, ferry-boat, cruise boat, and sea-taxis.

Paxos is covered by countless, over 500 year-old olive groves, as well as cypress trees and rich vegetation, whilst Antipaxos is one large vineyard. The eastern coastlines of the island are smooth, while the west coasts are bold and abrupt with remarkable natural formations: caves, arches, dome-shaped forms, sheer cliffs etc. The capital of Paxos is Gaios, a pi...

Getting around
It is recommended to hire a car or a scooter in order to explore the island and increase your swimming options. If, however, you like walking, there are two beaches close by (albeit with a 20 mins uphill walk all the way back) whilst the little village of Fontana (Platanos) is only 300 m. away and hosts a mini market, a bakery and two tavernas. You can also take the bus (3 times a day) to visit the other villages, Gaios, Magazia, Lakka and Loggos.
If you wish to rent a boat, you can choose between Loggos and Gaios.
The taxi is also quite affordable.
