In a central position in Paxos, the village of Fontana (also known as Platanos) (600m) has a handy taverna and kafenion which also serves as a general shop and  bakery, located conveniently within walking distance of Maritsa. The fifteenth century Estavromenos Church in the centre is worth a visit for its fine frescoes.The local Paxiots sit in the square under the large plane tree (also known as the "tree of idleness") playing backgammon and watching the world go by.

You will be spoilt for choice when it comes to which beach to frequent. Kaki Lagada Beach (1.5km) is situated below the road that runs from Loggos to Lakka and tends to be a quiet beach even in July and August, and has a little "kantina" serving simple snacks. Levrecchio Beach near Loggos is a 30 minute walk to the south, and to the north Glyfada and Monodendri Beaches are found just off the road to Lakka.

This pretty country cottage has a peaceful ambience that immediately sets a relaxing tone and the surrounding greenery emphasises the verdant backdrop. Olive trees frame the distant views of the sea from the upper terraces and the pretty gardens full of bougainvillea surround the outdoor table and chairs on and around the private pool terraces.

The traditional interior décor is a homage to the owner's ancestors, with nooks and crannies full of charming knick-knacks, and the living/dining room mixes rustic simplicity, such as threshing equipment on the walls,with comfortable sofas and lace curtains. The upstairs bedrooms, which have lovely views of the surrounding countryside, are simply furnished and light and airy.
Set on the less populated shoreline, the sea off Erimitis Beach is a brilliant aquamarine, deepening into a cobalt blue further out to sea, perfect for snorkelling whilst the shallow waters are good for paddling and splashing about. The rough track to Erimitis (meaning Hermit) Beach and cliff top (1.5km) is narrow like many on western Paxos and quite an adventure; however, it is totally worth the  drive or hike to arrive at the charming Hermit Taverna and watch the sun change the colours on the horizon as it slips seductively into the Ionian Sea.

Gaios town is 4km away, and definitely a busy place compared to sleepy Fontana; the bustling harbour front is crowded with yachts, ferry boats and fishing caiques, all joustling for the best mooring. Sit back  with a Greek coffee and be entertained!

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. The 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.
