Paxos’ east coast road starts at Gaios port and passes a string of beaches before turning inland – a small track then leads off to the deserted village of Geramonachos.
In centuries past, when the port of Gaios was attacked by pirates, the local women and children were hidden in this hilltop village, surrounded by olive groves.
Most of the village houses have now crumbled and fallen but the area is known by the islanders for its peaceful seclusion.
Villa Anassa has a private hillside location just below the deserted village and has views over the fjord-like entrance to Gaios port, the silver-leaved olive trees of the east coast and across the sea to the mountains of the Greek mainland.
A pathway leads from the villa down the hillside of olive groves to Gaios in under 15 minutes.
East coast beaches are nearby (Kloni Gouli beach is just over half a kilometre away).
In the same area, on separate hillside terraces, are Anassa’s two sister villas: Thekli and Evangelia. Each has its own seclusion and privacy.
