3 Bedrooms, Sleeps 6-8, Beach and Tavernas Close By, Amazing Location
Villa Katerina is one of a group of three very modern villas. In a fantastic hilltop location, it enjoys beautiful views. Situated just outside Lakka, it is within walking distance of the marvellous beaches for which Lakka is noted. The views from the balconies are breathtaking and must rank as one of the most striking views in the Ionian - a vista of unbelievably turquoise water, sheltered by the green headlands, that make Lakka such a fine harbour. Spacious, bright and comfortable, Villa Katerina is the perfect choice for a family or group of friends looking for a quiet holiday on Paxos.
Layout: Two bedrooms (a twin and a double) are located on ground floor, these share a bathroom (bath with shower fitments). This level is also home to a large living/dining room (with 2 sofa beds if required) and kitchen area. On the first floor, the master bedroom has an en suite bathroom (bath with shower fitments).
How to get to Paxos:
With no airport on Paxos, most visitors fly to the nearby island of Corfu and then transfer by hydrofoil, sea taxi or seaplane. It is an exciting start to your holiday! Charter flights to Corfu operate from most major European airports from May to October. There are also scheduled flights operating from Athens during the winter months.
Car Hire or Taxi Transfer:
We can arrange a hire car to meet you at the port of Gaios or a taxi transfer.
Walking on Paxos:
Paxos could easily be described as a giant olive grove! Shaded walks under the trees and coastal tracks, are a delight. The Agni Travel walking map will help you make the most of your holiday.
Renting a motor boat will give a whole new perspective to your view of Paxos. You won't believe how many quiet bays and coves you will find as you motor along the coast. A trip to Anti-Paxos is a must and only takes 20mins from Gaios.

Activity and Interests
The beach below the villa, with an excellent taverna, is accessed via a small coastal path. (The path down is approximately 180 metres and takes less than 5 mins to walk.) The beach is fine sand and white shingle, but once you are in the sea there is soft sand underfoot.
Lakka lies in the north of Paxos at the head of a long natural inlet of the most startling shade of turquoise - reminiscent of a Caribbean bay. It is a perfect harbour and is filled with a fascinating array of yachts in summer. The village itself is small and focused almost entirely on its harbour-front, with a selection of useful shops and several good restaurants and bars, including a very good Italian restaurant. The shores of the bay are fringed with beautiful natural beaches, shaded by trees, and it is possible to walk to other, more unfrequented, beaches on the other side of the headlands.
