Anastasia 2 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms | A/C | Wi-Fi | Shops/Tavernas 975m (path) or 1.5km (road) | Beach 1km | Sleeps 4
Recently built to an exacting high standard by friendly local owners, whose determination to ensure the comfort and relaxation of their guests was clearly a high priority, Anastasia is a modern, stylish house perfectly designed for easy summer living.
Offering spellbinding views, both across the town, harbour and the mesmerising sea beyond, Anastasia is one of three select properties (sister villas Theodora and Triena are nearby) sitting in private and thoughtfully landscaped grounds amongst the centuries-old olive groves immediately above Gaios town.
Creating an attractive fusion of old and new, subtle cues from traditional Ionian architectural principles such as the honey-coloured stone façade and upstairs vaulted wooden ceiling combine with a refined décor of soft pastel shades and taupe to ensure a welcoming and wonderfully comfortable house.
Outside, crazy paved terraces chaperone the inviting infinity pool whilst the solid, in-built barbecue will surely be at the heart of mealtime activity. An appealing al fresco scene is completed by numerous colourful pot plants artfully placed in and around the property walls, nooks and crannies, all under the dappled shade of established olive trees.
Just a 1.5km drive (or a 975m walk downhill via an unmade pathway), colourful Gaios offers all essential amenities including an extensive taverna-lined harbour front where dining by the water’s edge is a true delight - why not try local specialities such as sofrito (beef in a wine sauce with garlic and parsley) or bourdeto (a piquant seafood stew infused with paprika and usually made with scorpion fish). A leisurely stroll along the quayside gives time to admire the impressively jumbled forest of masts belonging to yachts large and small, from all over the world.
And no visit to this thoroughly calming and restful island would be complete without a trip to Erimitis Beach (6km) which locals consider the best vantage point on Paxos from which to savour the famous Ionian sunsets (and the residual, rose-tinted glow of the white cliffs as the stars begin to emerge).
Please note: The continental bed is two individual (single) mattresses sitting on a fixed double base. The mattresses can be made up individually (ie as two “single” beds) or with one set of bedding (ie as a “double” bed) - please let us know at time of booking if you have a preference.
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.
