Houses with dramatic sea views are always an absolute delight to discover, particularly when they are set amongst such lush gardens and boast the level of quality offered by Theodora. One of only three select properties (sister villas are Anastasia and Triena) to enjoy this desirable, infinitely peaceful enclave, Theodora sits just above Gaios, the capital and primary port of sleepy Paxos.
Designed to take full advantage of the quite magnificent vista across the surrounding olive and cypress tree-clad slopes, over Gaios, to the small islands of Agios Nikolas, Pelagia and the sea, Theodora does not fail to impress. Whether from the private pool, garden and generous terraces of the house exterior, the picture windows in each bedroom and the living area or the first floor balconies, you are never far from the mesmerising and ever-changing tableau of sky and sea that spreads out to the horizon.
Internally, the open plan living accommodation is finished in soothing pastel shades with light, colour-washed woodwork and cooling grey flagstone flooring; attractive fabrics in vibrant tones providing an eye-catching contrast.
Creating an additional degree of privacy that families or sharing couples may appreciate, one bedroom is found on the ground floor and the other upstairs (replete with two separate terraces and a four post bed). We believe the combination of comfort, calm and alluring views offered by Theodora is irresistible and creates the perfect environment for easy relaxation – just choose your favourite spot, pour your favourite drink, sit back and enjoy. It is that simple!
Paxos offers a remarkable amount of lovely beaches and being an island of just 19 square kilometres means that none of them are far away! Kloni Gouli (a favoured snorkelling spot) is the closest at just over 1km with Kaki Lagada and Kamini each about 3km. Kipos and Levrechio are both around 5km with Levrechio particularly popular for its excellent taverna, choice of watersports in high season and close proximity to picture-postcard Loggos.
Good amenities can be found in nearby Gaios including minimarkets for everyday essentials (or the island’s largest supermarket is 1.8km) as well as numerous waterside tavernas serving tasty local fare such as youvetsi (lamb with orzo pasta), rabbit stew and fresh seafood treats such as baked sardines or local lobster. To accompany your meal perhaps try a fresh fruit juice or wine lovers may wish to follow the advice of the locals who tell us the light, white Asproudi is very good along with the fulsome, smooth reds Fidias and Petrokoryntho.
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.
