We loved our stay at Summer Place. Real character property full of history. Lovely owners Stelio's and Dee who met us at ferry port and provided welcome pack and lots of information. Gaios is beautiful and full of good tavernas and shops. We only hired a car for 3 days because we also wanted to walk and explore. The view of the cliffs at Galazio on the West Coast is spectacular.
Erimitis taverna is highly recommended for the sunset views and superb quality food.
Loggos and Lakka are both worth a visit.
Hydrofoil takes an hour from Corfu. We booked before we travelled. We picked up a taxi outside airport then 10 mins and €15 to new port. A week at Summer Place followed by a week at Almond Tree Villa in Kendroma Corfu was a perfect holiday.
Stelios and Dee have an amazing home. Bright, spacious, inviting with all the extras required for a self catering holiday. The veranda outside is beautiful and is a great place to relax and enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner outside in the sun (when it shines!). Nice hot showers and comfy beds (stiff mattress which I prefer). The house is maintained exactly as shown in pictures online. They provided some basic essentials to start us off for the week including bottled water (not recommended to use the tap water on the island), toiletries, fruit and condiments.
They were wonderful hosts answering all our queries before we arrived, arranged to collect us at the port in Gaois and provided great tips for restaurants, tavernas, supermarkets and activities. They are so passionate about the island and will gladly give you their time to help you with any queries.
As for Paxos itself, it is a picturesque island, stunningly beautiful with crystal blue water, the people on the island are friendly with a vast range of restaurants and tavernas. Highlights include the Erimitis Bar & Restaurant to watch the sunset over the Ionian sea, Central Cafe in Gaois square for a great greek coffee and donuts!, Sakoulitsa 24 hr Pastry Shop, Gaois along with the Taxidi Bar and Taverna Vasilis in Loggos.
Summer Place in Gaios looks in reality exactly like the photos you see online. It's a good three-bedroomed, two-bathroomed house, all the bedrooms are good sizes with air-conditioning which was essential in August. The living room with kitchen area at the rear was a great space to all hang out in with an IPOD docking station and TV. Wi-fi worked well during our stay. The outdoor area was lovely in the evenings, just too hot in August to sit out there during the day, you need to be on the beach or in the water! The nearest nice beach is at Paxos Beach Hotel and it's about 10-12 minutes walk, past two other small beaches. Set just behind the harbour in Gaios the house is in a great location, our children loved it, being able to take themselves into town for cafes and shops, but quiet at night. Owners Stelio and Dee, who live in the apartment next door, were the perfect hosts, answering enquiries promptly by phone and email before we arrived, collecting us from the ferry, arranging car hire, booking a restaurant for us, really couldn't have been nicer and more helpful. The house is so quaint and stylish, we all loved it.
The owners of this beautiful Townhouse, Stelio and Dee met us from the Ferry and took us the very short drive to Summer Place which exceeded our expectations. We cannot praise it enough. This is a beautiful place to spend your holiday, in every way. Stelio and Dee are lovely people, were very helpful and their main priority it seemed was that you had a wonderful holiday, which we did. We instantly felt relaxed and at home. The location could not be any more perfect, from the gorgeous terrace area you can see the masts from the yachts bobbing above the roofs and in less than a minute you can walk to the Marina with lots of Restaurants and cafes where you can sit and watch the world go by. We cannot recommend any one restaurant as every meal we had was lovely served by very friendly people. This was our first visit to Paxos and we are very glad that we booked Summer Place as our accommodation as it was
‘Perfect Townhouse, Perfect Location, Perfect Holiday and Perfect Hosts’
