Situated in the heart of the village, this property is ideal for those guest who want to experience the 'real Paxos' offering the chance to stay in a historic and quiet setting, yet be within a few minutes of the town of Gaios. Cars and indeed people are a rareity in this sleepy village with the most likely traffic being one of the two donkeys that wander freely, or a village housewife gathering wild greens for the evening meal.

From the house, there are numerous coastal walks along the rugged and majestic west coast of the island which are easily reachable. Navigate your way past herds of goats and down tumble down lanes and you will be treated to stunning panoramas over the Adriatic where you can sit and enjoy the peace and quiet. Looking for some typical greek cooking and hospitality after a long day walking, and you can easily stumble on two of the most traditional "local" tavernas on the island which are both a short walk from the property.

On arrival at the retreat and you catch sight of the ornate external staircase leading up to a first floor outdoor sitting area. Here you have access to both double bedrooms entering through French doors into a first floor gallery area. The gallery looks down to the traditional original stone house and provides access to both of of the bedrooms.

Uncle Bruno's room has a distinctively Venetian feel with a King size bed, en - suite shower room and bespoke furnishings. Bath robes, mosquito nets, three pin plugs and european adaptors are available as is a security safe should you need it. Air - conditioning, ceiling fans, Dyson air multiplier, hair dryers and comfortable chairs are all provided for your added comfort as well as hot and cold drink facilities and additional storage areas.

The Athena suite situated also on the first floor is accessed the same way through the gallery. The room has distant sea views and has been individually designed with an Athenian feel consisting of an en -suite shower room, bathrobes, mosquito nets and hair dryers. As with Uncle Bruno's room it comes with comfortable chairs, three pin plugs, european adaptors, ceiling fans, air - conditioning,  air multiplier, hot and cold drink facilities and storage areas.

The owners and hosts provide a discreet and unintrusive service and are always on hand to assist you with any restaurant reservations, car, bike or boat hire.

Absolutely Wonderful!!

"I don't know quite where to start with this review but let me say, it was the best holiday me and my girlfriend have ever been on and we have been all over the world."


Wow! We found paradise!

Wow, what can we say! Words won't do this place justice, we literally found our own little bit of paradise in paxos when we booked VR and we are desperate to go back already"


We didn't ever want to leave...

After poring over the previous glowing reviews in the run up to our holiday, we had very high expectations of the Retreat. Our experiences surpassed even these"
