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 pedestrianised 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 a private parking area. 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.
Ground floor of an open-plan sitting room; dining area and kitchen. First floor of one double bedroom and en suite bathroom and one twin bedroom and en suite shower room. A mezzanine gallery room above the twin bedroom has a single bed.

"We loved Angelika - beautifully furnished and great to have the buzz of Gaios on our doorstep but with peace and privacy.
We hired a boat from Lefteris - a walk of 3 minutes - and spent our days commandeering our own little beaches on both coasts."

"Gaios has some great tavernas (surprisingly good cooking) and waterfront bars - nothing loud or brash but colourful and fun! Angelika has all this on its doorstep but is hidden away."

"We had the best time ever in Gaios. The house was perfect, just what we wanted, really part of the village. Fantastic WiFi, my husband had to do some work. Very nicely furnished and calm. The garden is amazing, at night it is like a fairyland, beautifully lit.
Christos was great, helpful and attentive. The cleaner was superb. Discreet and very quick.
The whole thing, apart from BA, could not have been better."
