Gaios is the capital village of Paxos – intimate and colourful, its main square has a waterfront which continues around the sheltered harbour and is lined with pastel-coloured Venetian houses, small bars and tavernas.
Excursion boats from Corfu arrive daily to fill the narrow, pedestrianised village lanes with visitors for a few midday hours. Otherwise the atmosphere is sleepy and waterfront activity centres around the arrival of yachts, local fishing boats and small hire boats – an enjoyable theatre viewed from a shaded waterfront bar.
Angelika is just a 2-minute walk away from the Gaios waterfront (reached by a narrow street and a flight of 10 steps). Close to village life but with a private and peaceful garden to be alone.
The waterfront and the street below Angelika are pedestrianised - the location is quiet but conveniently close to all the attractions of Gaios village. A hired boat can be moored a few minutes’ walk away (to explore the island’s coastline) and the nearest beach is an 8 minute walk.
We consider Angelika to be one of the prettiest and most comfortable houses in Gaios.
Angelika’s garden has a Jacuzzi (4 x 3 metres) with “swim jet”
Maid service and linen change twice weekly.
Location: car hire not needed but there is private parking if needed. Just a 2 minute walk to the main square of Gaios. Speedboats depart every half hour from the square to reach the sandy beaches of AntiPaxos – or one can take a hired boat across – a journey of around 20 minutes.
