Exclusive Seafront Villa with Pool
Unique Location, Spacious Luxury Villa
Personal Review (visited 2013)
This villa is probably considered the epitome of luxury. A small jetty right below the property allows you to moor your yacht after returning from one of the most beautiful beaches in Greece (Voutoumi Beach) and a few meters away is a small pebbly beach with crystal clear water inviting you for a swim. Lush green encloses the property to grant privacy without obstructing the stunning sea view over the emerald green waters in the romantic bay. The ample outdoor spaces, stretching over so many different levels on the premises, invite you to spread out and appreciate the serenity.
Whilst some are absorbing the sun by the pool, others might indulge in their favorite novel or snooze in the shade and there is always someone who needs to sneak away from the rest of the group to catch up with work. With so many choices, everyone will find his favorite retreat.
Enhanced by refreshingly light colours, the interior successfully merges traditional architecture with modern design and todays amenities. The property features two separate villas, each with 3 bedrooms, living room, kitchen and dining area plus an annex on the pool level and a cozy studio in the garden, accommodating a total of 15 guests.
A generous outdoor dining area is located between the two villas, comfortably seating more than 16 guests under a wooden pergola. After a sumptuous meal you might want to move over to the cozy lounge area for a digestif and as night falls savor the rise of the moon (make sure you look up at the starry sky, its unique!).
The nights are blessed with a gentle sea breeze and pleasant temperatures but air-cons are installed all over the house, just to be on the safe side. All bedrooms have sea view facing east, allowing you to enjoy the sunrise over Mongonisi (peninsula) from your bed.
The location and size of this villa make it ideal for a large group of friends or family reunions. You should consider hiring a yacht or motor-boat to relish the beautiful coastline of this small group of islands known as Paxoi (Paxos, Antipaxos, Mogonisi, Nisaki, Katsonisi) as well as Corfu, Lefkas, Cephalonia and Ithaka in the distance.
The annex or the garden studio is perfectly suitable to accommodate your own staff, or a private live-in chef to cater for everyone’s body and soul.
If the youngest guest is still a toddler, you might want to have a babysitter, because there are some places on the property where small children must be supervised.
Paxos is famous for those crystal clear waters where you can see the shadow of a boat on the seabed and the full spectrum of colours ranging from deep blue via emerald green to a saturated turquoise. Many bays have fine white sand in the water but often the shore is lined with pebble stones. Probably one of the most beautiful white sandy beaches Greece offers (Voutoumi Beach) is on Antipaxos, literally only 5 minutes boat ride from this villa.
The villages are small and picturesque, a perfect backdrop for meandering through the little streets and shops, culminating in one of the many traditional Greek or palatable Italian restaurants on the waterfront. Many wealthy people across the world have already discovered the beauty of this hidden gem, taking real estate prices to dizzying hights, yet Paxos managed to keep this humble but warm and personally welcoming atmosphere Greek islands are all about.
