This magnificent seafront property, standing on a headland close to Gaios Port and the main town, commands stunning ocean vistas from all angles. Within touching distance of the colourful port, fishing boats can be seen sailing out at dawn for the early morning catch, and daily ferries promenade back and forth from Corfu unloading everything from newspapers and cars to first time visitors keen to explore the island.
Views of the small islands of Panagia and Aghios Nicolaos and the mountains of mainland Epirus in the distance, set against the vivid blue Ionian Sea, do not disappoint. Large lime green umbrellas offer shade from the strong Greek sunshine around the main terrace, and the infinity pool merges effortlessly into the horizon of blue sea and sky.
The interior of the house is delightfully decorated, with a blend of calm neutral shades highlighted by bold splashes of colour. A ground floor double bedroom leads off the main living room, and twin beds are situated in an alcove, with a folding screen that gives reasonable privacy when fully extended. On first floor level, a double bedroom with its own kitchenette opens onto a private verandah, where glass panels enable wonderful views whether sipping a glass of something cold or a mid morning coffee.
Turn right out of the gate and a 500m stroll takes you past the New Port and its myriad water traffic and into the capital itself. Gaios has a great selection of amenities: supermarkets, bars, cafes, bakeries and an interesting array of traditional hardware shops, ironmongers and even yacht brokers can be found amongst the narrow cobbled streets and alleyways. Nearby Klioni Youli beach (400m) can be reached on foot; or spread your wings and venture north with the local bus or a hire car to the beaches of Monodendri, Kaki Lagada, Kipos and Halami to name but a few. Search out the pretty villages of Loggos and Lakka and the tiny hamlets, orchards and endless olive groves as you traverse this wooded paradise from end to end.
Please note: As a courtesy to guests, we mention the property owner lives in an adjacent house, accessed via an independent entrance. She does not use any of the house facilities and fully respects your privacy.
Flights arrive into the neighbouring island of Corfu. Clients will be transferred by taxi from the airport to the port to make the (approx 1hr) sea crossing to Paxos as foot passengers. At the end of your holiday, your party will be booked on the appropriate crossing back to Corfu port from where a taxi will take you to the airport in good time for your flight. Transfers are provided for Monday departures and arrivals only.
If you pre-book car hire, your vehicle is collected from and returned to the port on Paxos. If you are not hiring a car then taxis (payable locally) are available to take you to your property.
